Curtis Blaydes Questions Ngannou’s Mental State Heading Into Rematch

Curtis Blaydes thinks former title challenger Francis Ngannou is in a ‘dark place’ heading into their main event rematch at UFC Beijing. Blaydes will get his chance at redemption as Ngannou defeated “Razor” via second-round TKO (via doctor stoppage) in April 2016. That remains the only loss on Blaydes’ record.

Curtis Blaydes thinks former title challenger Francis Ngannou is in a ‘dark place’ heading into their main event rematch at UFC Beijing.

Blaydes will get his chance at redemption as Ngannou defeated “Razor” via second-round TKO (via doctor stoppage) in April 2016. That remains the only loss on Blaydes’ record.

Their first meeting, however, served as a bit of a launching point for both fighters. “The Predator” went on a run that took him straight to a title shot. As for Blaydes, he is still peaking and has won five straight since losing to Ngannou.

Blaydes said he always thought he and Ngannou would cross paths again. It just made too much sense to “Razor.”

“I wouldn’t say it kept me up at night, but I knew it would happen eventually,” Blaydes told reporters, including LowkickMMA, during a recent media scrum. “It was inevitable. I knew he’d be around, I’d be around. The UFC likes natural stories like this. We already have a natural storyline. It’s not fake. We had a fight, he won, but I didn’t get to finish it. So I do have a bit of redemption I want to get.”

Blaydes will headline UFC Fight Night 141 takes place Nov. 24 at Cadillac Arena in Beijing. The event will stream entirely on UFC Fight Pass.

When asked about Ngannou’s mental state after his last two losses, Blaydes doesn’t see how the Cameroonian can be in a good place. However, he still sees Ngannou as a dangerous opponent.

“He’s probably in a hole right now,” Blaydes said. “0-2 after being the hotshot? That’s got to be a dark, dark place. I want him to be his best, I don’t want any excuses out of his camp or the fans or the company. I want him at his best. I’ll beat him 10 out of 10 times.”

If Blaydes beats Ngannou he would seem like the next logical title challenger in the heavyweight division. He launched a social media campaign in an effort to fight for the belt after his last victory.

The UFC instead offered up a former foe for Blaydes. Although it’s far from what he wanted, a chance at redemption is a nice consolation. And either way, the first loss doesn’t get to him due to its result.

“It is a loss,” Blaydes said. “On my record, it’s a loss, but any loss that you don’t lose any sleep over is that one. It wasn’t the referee’s decision, it wasn’t the judge’s decision, it was the doctor.”

The ONE Welterweight title is vacant, but it won’t be for long. On 17 November, live from Stadium Istora in Jakarta, in the main event of ONE: WARRIOR’S DREAM, the undefeated Tyler McGuire will face Zebaztian Kadestam to crown the next champion of the division. The card will also feature an intriguing kickboxing match between two former champions. The legendary Nieky Holzken will battle Cosmo Alexandre in the co-feature as part of the ONE Super Series. It’s a rematch 10 years in the making.

In addition to MMA and kickboxing, there are also two Muay Thai bouts on tap. The action begins at 7pm. Here is a look at the entire card:

  • Tyler McGuire vs. Zebaztian Kadestam (For Vacant ONE Welterweight Title)
  • Nieky Holzken vs. Cosmo Alexandre (Kickboxing)
  • Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol vs. Angelie Sabanal
  • Pongsiri Mitsatit vs.  Hayato Suzuki
  • Lerdsila Chumpairtour vs. Sok Thy (Muay Thai)
  • Zach Zane vs. Jimmy Yabo
  • Elipitua Siregar vs. Muhammad Imran
  • Egi Rozten vs. Eddey Kalai
  • Zhao Zhi Kang vs. Dae Hwan Kim
  • Eugene Toquero vs. Tatsumitsu Wada
  • Brown Pinas vs. Yohann Drai (Muay Thai)
  • Xie Chao vs. Bruno Pucci

ONE: WARRIOR’S DREAM will be broadcast on local television in Jakarta and other Asian countries where available. However, martial arts fans who do not live in any of the countries where the event is being broadcast can watch the action for free on the ONE mobile app.

The 32-year-old McGuire has compiled a record of 11-0 since turning professional in mixed martial arts back in April 2015. That includes a triumphant ONE debut at ONE: PURSUIT OF POWER in July 2018. McGuire took a unanimous decision over Luis Santos to set up this opportunity. He is making a bid to join heavyweight Brandon Vera as the only American-born champions in ONE Championship.

McGuire’s opponent Kadestam is a three-fight veteran with ONE, but his career dates back to 2011. This will be his second shot at winning the ONE welterweight title, but he too owns a win over Santos. In his last bout, which also took place at ONE: PURSUIT OF POWER, Kadestam scored a decisive TKO victory over Agilan Thani. Their battle looks to be a classic clash between a grappler/submission specialist in McGuire, and a striker in Kadestam. Oftentimes, this dynamic has helped to create some of the most memorable bouts in MMA history. Perhaps this will be the latest edition in the unofficial series.

Holzken is one of the most skilled and decorated strikers in combat sports history. He is a multiple-time kickboxing champion and even owns a 13-1 record as a professional boxer. The 34-year-old from the Netherlands has accumulated a wealth of experience in his career and established a significant following. While he’ll be competing in Jakarta, you can bet his fans will pay close attention to his rematch with Alexandre.

The 36-year-old Brazilian won his last bout at ONE: HEROES OF HONOR in April via KO over Elliot Compton, but Holzken got the better of him in their first meeting. Holzken took it by decision 4-1, but Alexandre will be looking to even the score. With a title on the line, and kickboxing royalty in action, ONE: WARRIOR’S DREAM could be one to watch.

Yair Rodriguez’s Coach Explains Why Every Fighter Needs Brutal Fight

Yair Rodriguez’s coach breaks his belief in fighters needing to be part of a harrowing war in their careers.

The post Yair Rodriguez’s Coach Explains Why Every Fighter Needs Brutal Fight appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Yair Rodriguez’s coach explains why he thinks that every MMA fighter needs to take part in such a brutal fight like his fighter was involved in. Rodriguez put on one of the greatest knockouts in UFC history. This came against “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung in the headliner of the UFC Denver event on FOX Sports 1.

It was one of the best fights of the year that surpassed expectations going into it. That is all fine and good according to Rodriguez’s coach Israel Martinez. However, he does think that it was a good learning lesson for his fighter. An experience that is the sort of career-changing, which can transform a good fighter into a great one

“We believe every fighter needs one of those.” Martinez said Monday on The MMA Hour. “It’s one of those things you tell a young athlete. You tell a young fighter, even the older guys: You need to get your ass kicked to kinda be woken up a little bit. You need to go through some dirty fights, some trenches. But you don’t need to do that every day.”

Yair Rodriguez’s Coach Explains His Standpoint

Martinez does understand that this is a one-off kind of situation as to not to do it every day. If that’s the case then it could lead to some big problems down the road.

“You don’t need to get punched in the head every day. And that’s one of those fights that we’re gonna have in our bag. We’re always going to be able to pull out all the things we’re learned from that. But there’s no way we want that type of fight again.”

Rodriguez’s coach believes at the end of the day that his fighter is beat up and it’s going to stick with him. Thus, they have to take the positives from that experience and move forward with it.

“Those things are deadly. Yair is beat up, and that’s going to be stuck in his head. Good and bad, for the rest of his life. So we want to make sure that we take the positives over the negatives and move forward.”
