The championship for Rua and Evans for the light heavyweight title is not due until 2011.
UFC’s Light heavyweight championship is on hold for 2010. Champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (19-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) who won by a knockout to Lyoto Machida last May will be out till until summer or spring of 2011.
UFC President Dana White told ESPN that he’ll be seeing former champion Rashad Evans (15-1-1 MMA, 10-1-1 UFC) when he returns to the octagon.
Rua has undergone a successful knee surgery last June which was the cause of the delay. He fought Forrest Griffin with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his octagon debut at UFC 76 and underwent surgery right after to repair damages to his case. 6 months later, he withdrew from a scheduled fight with Chuck Liddell at UFC 85 for the same cause.
“We did this [surgery] in the United States with the best doctor in the country,” White said. “He’s recovering well, and we’re looking for mid-spring, early-summer.”Read the rest of the article »
Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal might be forced to take the wayside for nine months. He "will undergo knee surgery to replace both his anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee," according to his manager Ryan Parsons.
Lawal just came fresh from a title defeat to Rafael “Feijiao” Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Houston on Saturday after the former contender downed the collegiate wrestling champ with a series of knee strikes and a right hand. The present light-heavyweight champ forced out a third-round referee stoppage afterwards.
That is where Lawal abruptly stopped for the scorecards, as he is used to topping those. It was in the same brawl that Lawal incurred his injury. His surgery will take place next Tuesday in Los Angeles.
After an examination by a physician last Monday, Parson spoke the news, “Mo wanted to take one more fight, but we decided that this injury should be attended to first.” This is not the first time the 29-year-old former champ will undergo surgery. He also went through an ACL surgery after injuring his ligament in the first round of March 2009’s Sengoku “Seventh Battle”.View Article Source »
It’s a brand new start for Matyushenko with a new four-fight deal.
Vladimir Matyushenko may have struggled in his last fight in the UFC, but the fighter is not giving up on his battle to climb the light heavyweight ladder. Matyushenko signed a four-fight deal with the promotion.
The news was released by the Alchemist Management, the company who handles Matyushenko’s career.
This will be the return of Matyushenko after his previous employer, Affliction, closed down. His last record was 2-1, after losing a fight with light heavyweight phenomenon Jon Jones.
For now, Matyushenko gathered new people to work on his fight camp outside of California. His new deal will begin on his next battle on the Octagon this year.View Article Source »
