Majit Suleymanov, a four-foot-tall dwarf and social media star competed in a hugely outlandish and controversial Epic Fighting Championship event earlier this month against a female pornstar, Alexandra Puskin, with the Russian promotion once more fielding another freakshow, intergender mixed martial arts fight.

Suleymanov, who was the much shorter of the two, managed to successfully takedown Puskin on cue during the opening round of their bizarre MMA matchup, establishing mount on occasion in-between scrambles, with the duo eventually trading strikes to boot. 

Suleymanov was eventually confronted in the cage by another female in support of Puskin at the EFC MMA event

Continuing to find success with his wrestling in the opening stages of the second round, Suleymanov, however, the blogger and social media influencer was confronted by another female in the cage – who appeared to be in the corner of Puskin, who pulled Suleymanov from guard and lashed out at him, before the official managed to corral her. During the bout, the commentary team seated at cageside could not contain their laughter as they described the action playing out.

Over the course of the last numerous months, the promotion has received widespread criticism and notoriety for fielding intergender mixed martial arts bouts, and other freakshow fights, including multiple fights featuring two male competitors against a sole female challenger, and a notable occurrence of a grandfather fighting alongside his grandson against a sole female opponent. 

Polish MMA promotion WAR also managed to get in on the recent influx of freakshow, intergender, and just plain bizarre fights – with a 5-on-5 team matchup, which included a slew of brutally late stoppages as three referees attempted to officiate the bout, with one fighter, in particular, taking significant punishment from at least two fighters on the opposite team, despite being unconscious for some time

Reactions to these types of freakshow MMA events have been totally varied, with commenters complementing the promotions for showcasing unique fights, while other critics voicing their concern for intergender fights, blatant mismatches, as well as expressing concern for potentially life-changing, late stoppages.

Khabib Nurmagomedov

Despite retiring from professional mixed martial arts almost two years ago, former UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov still clearly remains fresh when it comes to offensive grappling – managing to restrict former middleweight kingpin, Luke Rockhold in some new training footage ahead of his UFC 278 return in August. 

Khabib Nurmagomedov, a former undisputed lightweight champion under the UFC banner, retired from the sport back in October 2020, submitting former interim titleholder, Justin Gaethje with a second round triangle to successfully unify the crowns.

For Rockhold, the former UFC and Strikeforce middleweight champion is slated to make his first Octagon walk since the summer of 2019 in a rescheduled UFC 278 clash against one-time division title challenger, Paulo Costa on August 20. in Salt Lake City.

The veteran Santa Cruz native was initially slated to meet with the Belo Horizonte striker at UFC 277 on July 30. in Dallas, Texas, however, the pairing has now been moved a month later due to currently undisclosed reasons

Rockhold was initially slated to feature at UFC 268 back in November at Madison Square Garden against Sean Strickland, however, a back injury forced the shelving of the matchup. Rockhold has yet to feature since a knockout defeat to former light heavyweight gold holder, Jan Blachowicz in 2019.

Khabib Nurmagomedov jokes about the grappling ability of Luke Rockhold

A decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu grappler, Rockhold, who holds an impressive eight career submission victories, found himself on the receiving end of a grappling masterclass by the dominant Khabib at their native American Kickboxing Academy base in San Jose, California – with Khabib poking fun at the former’s grappling ability, compared to his Sambo expertise. 

“If Sambo was easy… itd be called Luke Rockhold,” Khabib Nurmagomedov said jokingly. “It’s okay. Ask Luke (Rockhold) what happened today. I just miss you, I hug you brother.” (Transcribed by Bloody Elbow)

In his most recent professional victory, Rockhold managed to land a second round submission to strikes win over former two-weight WSOF champion, David Branch in February 2017 in the main event of UFC Fight Night Pittsburg.

In his time away from the sport, Khabib has been continually linked with a return to active competition, particularly in the form of a potential future fight against fellow former undisputed lightweight kingpin, Charles Oliveira.

Jamahal Hill

Sucker Punch Management founder, Brian Butler-Au was forced to intervene in a prank set up for his client, UFC light heavyweight contender, Jamahal Hill – after the latter almost found himself involved in a physical altercation.

Jamahal Hill, who improved to 10-1(1) as a professional back in February in the main event of UFC Vegas 48, landing a first round knockout win over Johnny Walker in a Performance of the Night bonus earning finish. The win also earned Hill the #10 rank in the official light heavyweight stack.

Slated to return in August, Jamahal Hill headlines for the second time consecutively, tackling one-time light heavyweight title challenger, Thiago Santos in a high-stakes main event bout. 

Butler-Au, who is pictured with Hill sitting outside, appears to have organized Tik Tok prankster, ImReddTTV to carry out a prank on his client, who pretends to be on his phone, taking a call, offering to fight Hill.

Signalling to Butler-Au, the prankster is quickly grabbed by Hill near his neck, before Butler-Au intervenes and corrals Hill – who is informed repeatedly that he is the subject of a prank attempt from ImReddTTV

Jamahal Hill has been touted as a future top contender at 205lbs

Before his February knockout win over Brazilian prospect, Walker, Hill managed to stop his fellow division prospect, Jimmy Crute with a similarly devastating first round knockout victory.

Suffering just a single professional loss, the Illinois native dropped a first round strikes stoppage defeat to Paul Craig during a grappling scramble in the early stages of their UFC 263 matchup in June of last year.

Embarking on a three-fight undefeated run to quickstart his UFC tenure, Hill, a product of Dana White’s Contender Series – defeated Darko Stosic, and recent UFC 274 victor, Ovince Saint Preux, in between a knockout win over Klidson Abreu which was later overturned to an official ‘No Contest’ after Hill tested positive for marijuana.

Canelo Alvarez Suffers Decision Loss To Dmitry Bivol In Upset Title Defeat – Highlights

Canelo Alvarez

Undisputed super middleweight champion, Canelo Alvarez failed in his attempt to land the WBA super light heavyweight championship in a division leap last night against champion, Dmitry Bivol – suffering a unanimous decision loss over the course of 12 rounds in the pair’s Las Vegas, Nevada headliner. 

Suffering just the second professional loss of his career following a prior judging defeat to former world champion, Floyd Mayweather back in September 2013, Canelo Alvarez had entered his light heavyweight division return off the back of a successful eleventh round finish over Jacob Plant back in November of last year – adding the IBF super middleweight title to his stacked and decorated mantle.

Failing to ever really mount any significant offense against the undefeated Russian, Bivol – Canelo landed a career-low number of strikes over the course of 12 total rounds, forced to fight from the outside as Bivol countered and defended expertly. Landing a successful title retention, Bivol landed a unanimous judging win on all three judge’s scorecards, who inked 115-113 on their official papers.

Managing to roll and stick up a persistent guard throughout the 12 round main event despite Canelo’s best efforts, Bivol admitted that he had felt the power coming from the Jalisco pound-for-pound king, but pointed to visible damage to his shoulder and arm – rather than his head.

“I felt his power,” Dmitry Bivol said post-fight. “As you can see from my arm, he (Canelo Alvarez) beat my arm up but not my head. It’s better. He had a good speed and power. Maybe his mistake was he threw only hard punches. After hard punches, he relaxed and (was) tired. I was feeling great. This was the biggest fight of my career and I enjoyed this fight. When the people booed me, it gave me more energy.”

Last night’s ‘Sin City’ defeat for Canelo snapped a whopping 16-fight winning streak for the Mexican puncher, who had previously made the light heavyweight limit back in November 2019 to land the WBO light heavyweight crown with a eleventh round knockout success against Bivol’s compatriot, Sergey Kovalev. 

Below, catch the highlights from Canelo Alvarez’s upset defeat against Dmitry Bivol

Shakur Stevenson

Off the back of his WBC super featherweight championship win last night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, undefeated uber-prospect, Shakur Stevenson was forced to intervene in an alleged brawl involving his mother, drawing an abrupt close to his post-fight press conference.

Headlining the Las Vegas, Nevada card in a monumental night for professional boxing, Stevenson managed to land his eighteenth professional victory – remaining undefeated with a dominant unanimous decision victory against Sonora native, Oscar Valdez – landing the WBC and The Ring super featherweight championships as well as defending his own WBO super featherweight crown.

Stevenson, an Olympic silver medalist at the 2016 summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro made his professional debut just five years ago, and has been tipped to land in the official pound-for-pound rankings off the back of last night’s success against Valdez in ‘Sin City’.

Shakur Stevenson was forced to call a halt to his post-fight press conference

However, the 24-year-old’s impressive unanimous decision win over Mexico native, Valdez, was briefly hampered by a post-fight brawl broke out during his press conference, forcing him to cut short his media dealings in order to attempt to intervene. 

Whilst details of the altercation are limited at the time of publication, reports suggest Stevenson’s mother and members of his team were involved in the post-fight scuffle, with video footage emerging of the brawl at the press conference.

“And a fight broke out just outside of the press conference,” Andreas Hale tweeted. “Shakur Stevenson darted off stage, world titles on his shoulders, into the fray.” 

“Crazy scene at @MGMGrand interrupting @ShakurStevenson press conference #ValdezStevenson,” The Schmo tweeted, accompanied by brief video footage of the post-fight brawl.

“Apparently two women are accused of attacking Shakur Stevenson’s mother, which abuptly (sic) concluded the news conference when Shakur rushed to her aid,” Mike Coppinger tweeted. “Was unclear what was happening in real time #ValdezStevenson.”
