Late addition to #themmahour
: the one and only Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA
). See ya then.
Lombard vs. Shields has been added to UFC 171 on 3/15 in Dallas, per @bokamotoESPN
. 2nd time in a row HL gets the fight he wanted. Smart.

Interestingly enough, Steve Bash, Fedor's translator during his Affliction days, is in Malignaggi's corner.
who you got in the boxing fight ariel” I've always been a Paulie guy. #bensonhurst
Al Bernstein just said Zab Judah trains at "the UFC gym" in Vegas. I wonder if he mains the chain or the actual gym at Zuffa HQ.
IFC main up now, but I'm all about the Brooklyn civil war about to play out on Sho. Then, I promise to take a break from combat for 5-6 hrs.
Miriam Nakamoto was out for all of 2011 due to ACL reconstruction surgery, so seeing her suffer another knee injury is depressing.
The 37-year-old Nakamoto was helped out of the cage. Horrible turn of events for her as she was winning the fight. Hopefully not too serious
: Lauren Murphy wins title after Nakamoto suffers knee injury at #invictafc7 mmafighting.com/2013/12/7/5183…
Nakamoto appears to blow out her knee early in the 4th. She's still on the mat. Looked like she injured it at first during a TD. Fight over.
I'm told UFC offered Nakamoto a fight on the TUF Finale last week but were told she needs more time. I think she wants to fight Cyborg 1st.
Look at @MikeKogan
looking like a proud papa on national TV. Last week Diaz wins his main event, this week Karakhanyan. Nice stretch for MK.
Karakhanyan wins via guillotine choke to win the WSOF featherweight title. Disagree with many of you: he's better than when he was in BMMA.
hope they don't over look @badmofo_jojo
for a shot at the title.” She's certainly done more. No need to rush Torres
Esparaza, the champ, just sorta challenged Torres. Even Torres seemed surprise by that. Seemed like they told Esparza to do that.
Former UFC fighter turned MMA manager Charles McCarthy in the cage congratulating Tecia Torres after her big win at Invicta.
Over at Invicta, Torres and Herrig are living up to the PME hype. Torres is very impressive. Watch here: mmafighting.com/2013/12/7/5183…
WSOF about to crown its second champion. Karakhanyan vs. Team Alpha Male's Palmer at 145 lbs. Hard to beat this @ 145 outside the UFC.
@arielhelwani @Steve_Carl @SugarRaySefo
Steve and I would put on an amazing show.... let's do this and give the fans what they want !
people's main event up next on #InvictaFC7
Tecia Torres vs Felice Herrig” The people have definitely spoken
Jesse Taylor says, "I don't care if it's boring I'm going to keep winning." I wonder what WSOF thinks of that philosophy.
Winner of this fight faces D. Branch for the vacant WSOF 185-pound title. Personally, I don't think all their divisions are ready for belts.
Instead of airing commercials for the event we're watching right now, kinda think that NBCSN should be airing commercials for WSOF 8 in Jan.
Taylor coming out to Matisyahu. That gets me going every time. He's a father now too. Signs he's grown up from his TUF days.
I asked Knapp how much money she expects to lose due to the PPV issues. Her answer: "I'm not sure, but whatever."
Jesse Taylor vs. Elvis Mutapcic up next. Cornermen: please put away anything that looks like a pill bottle for the next 5 minutes.
Remember, Newell tried out for TUF a few years back and made it pretty far. Even was licensed by the NSAC. He'd be perfect for that show.
think it'll take Newell 2 more victories to get to the UFC? It might be just one.” WSOF will try their hardest to keep him.
is my hero @arielhelwani
” Ha. He should be. Your biggest star right now.
Newell says he wants to fight for the belt next. He's the face of the promotion but they should take their time. One more. Maybe Firmino.
WSOF's 1st NBC show is currently planed for early summer. Ideal scenario: Newell wins one more time and then fights for their belt on NBC.
Simply amazing. Nick Newell wins via first-round standing guillotine. Never in doubt. Might be time for a step up in competition. #wsof7
Shannon Knapp just informed me that if you paid for the show online or even on TV you will be refunded.
: Can watch Invicta FC 7 live stream here mmafighting.com/2013/12/7/5183…
” Or here.
If you go to InvictaFC.com
right now the card is live and free.
Shannon Knapp just informed me that the Invicta pay wall is coming down right away. "Fights for free for all my peeps," she said.
Anyhow, Mr. Must See TV is up next. That's Nick Newell for the uninformed. If you've never seen him fight before please do put on NBCSN now.
Knapp was told by her team that the stream is working in the arena. I informed her it wasn't. She said she just raised hell. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, Kalib Starnes brought the heat in Van City. Standing left elbow finishes Lewis in the second. He fights at 205 now, btw.
Thanks for the responses. Seems like everyone is having issues. I asked Shannon Knapp for an update. I'll pass along any info if I get it.
Trying to buy Invicta and having problems. Tried Chrome and Firefox. Anyone else?
Kalib Starnes, who I'm sure still hears about UFC 83 all the time, fights for the first time on national TV since then at WSOF right now.

Sidenote: Monday's episode of #themmahour
is turning into one heck of a ring-a-ding-dong-dandy. More tomorrow.
Great to see @MaulerMMA
doing post-fight intvs for WSOF. Main card too? Also, these answers right now couldn't be more Canadian. Love it.
Well, those who responded are definitely more interested in Invicta tonight. I'll be watching both. Also, #BrooklynBoxing
on Sho. I gotta.
