Nicolas Dalby Is A New Man

But for Dalby, the promotion has been more to him over the years than just a place to fight. “Cage Warriors has meant a lot,” he said. “It’s kind of like my home away from home in fighting.

Roosevelt Roberts Is Right Where He’s Supposed To Be

That ascension should continue on schedule if he can get past the always-dangerous Vinc Pichel. If he’s nervous about his opponent, it doesn’t show.

Dana White wants to get Jon Jones’ disqualification loss from 2009 overturned

Benavidez Is No Stranger To Rematches

That’s why Joseph Benavidez is surprised to hear that his last fight with Jussier Formiga, who he’ll rematch this week at UFC Minneapolis, was back in 2013. “In my mind I thought it was, like, two years ago,” he says, smiling.
