Colby Covington was on a completely different level than his counterpart Saturday evening. Loser: Donald Cerrone-Niko Price bout ends in a draw © Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports The legendary Cowboy was riding a four-bout losing streak and was seemingly on his last legs. Cerrone was taking on a fighter in Niko Price coming off a difficult loss to Vicente Luque in UFC 249 this past May. Something had to give here, right? Sadly the answer to that question was a no. After an all-out effort by the two welterweight contenders, the bout ended in a majority draw (29-27, 28-28, 28-28).
A bantamweight matchup is the latest addition to the UFC’s Oct. 31 event.
Miles Johns (10-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Kevin Natividad (9-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) are set to fight on the UFC’s Oct. 31 event, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation recently informed MMA Junkie of the booking but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
After earning a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series in June 2019, Johns has split his first two UFC appearances. A former LFA bantamweight champion, Johns picked up a win over Cole Smith in his promotional debut last September. He then suffered a TKO loss to Mario Bautista at UFC 247 in February.
Patriots' Bill Belichick says he hasn't watched Tom Brady's games with Buccaneers
The New England coach says his focus has been on his team and its early-season opponents."I've really been focused on the teams that we're playing, Lou," Belichick said in his weekly appearance on Boston radio station WEEI. He was responding to a question from co-host Lou Merloni, the former Red Sox infielder. "Miami was obviously a big focus for us . . . There were some other things that came up for me last week. The Raiders, they're a team we haven't played. Seattle's a team we haven't played. We've kind of got our hands full with taking care of the things that we've got to take care of.
A winner of his past five in a row, Natividad was scheduled to make his UFC debut against Brian Kelleher at UFC on ESPN+ 34 earlier this month but was pulled last second due to precautionary reasons concerning his COVID-19 tests taken during fight week.
