Hand-to-hand Russian Championships Gold Medalist (2009, 2013) and current UFC welterweight fighter Albert Tumenov (15-2) challenged through Instagram recent UFC Fight Night 70 co-main event competitor Lorenz Larkin (16-4) to measure their punching skills inside the cage.
"da monsoon you think, that you are good puncher? Take my challenge and you will know what is the real punch!"  23-year-old Tumenov wrote. 

28-year-old Larkin has a record of 3-4 in the Octagon. This past weekend in Hollywood he stopped in the second round fellow striker Santiago Ponzinibbio, the match was awarded "Fight of the Night". Before that fight, "The Monsoon" also earned quick TKO win over John Howard and went home with the "Performance of the Night" bonus.

Tumenov debuted in the UFC against Ildemar Alcântara losing by split decision. "The Einstein" now has a three-fight win-streak where two wins came by KO in the opening round, over Anthony Lapsley and Matt Dwyer, and his latest win by unanimous decision over Nico Musoke. Tumenov was expected to face Héctor Urbina on June 13, but was injured and replaced with Andrew Todhunter. However, a couple of days before the fight Todhunter wasn't medically cleared due to weight issues and the match was scrapped from the UFC 188 card.

<![CDATA[UFC Fight Night 70 results: Yoel Romero KO's Lyoto Machida in third]]>Sun, 28 Jun 2015 09:35:41 GMThttp://combatbear.com/6/post/2015/06/ufc-fight-night-70-results-yoel-romero-kos-lyoto-machida-in-third.html
Yoel Romero knocked out Lyoto Machida in the third round. Lorenz Larkin stopped Santiago Ponzinibbio in the second. For this and the full UFC Fight Night 70 results see below.
Romero is in center and Machida moves around. Both are exchanging low kicks and no one is rushing with attacks. In the second round the Cuban is more active landing a superman punch from the cage and almost taking down the Brazilian in the final seconds. In the third round Romero gets in the clinch, takes the fight to the floor and after short, but hard elbows knocks out the former Champion.

Larkin looks much faster than Ponzinibbio, but it's the Argentinian who is the aggressor early. The American lands nice punches and hard low kicks, while his opponent throws long one-two combination, but he struggles to land. However in the second round, Ponzinibbio connects, but can't finish Larking who soon after connects himself and after a series of punches wins via TKO.

<![CDATA[Bellator 139 results: Cheick Kongo dominates Alexander Volkov on the mat]]>Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:15:02 GMThttp://combatbear.com/6/post/2015/06/bellator-139-resultscheick-kongo-dominates-alexander-volkov-on-the-mat.html
Cheick Kongo won every round against fellow heavyweighter Alexander Volkov at Bellator 139's headliner in Mulvane, Kansas. The Frenchman worked for takedowns early against the Russian striker and they worked well at the fence. Following with ground and pound Kongo made significant damage. Volkov was met him with strikes and tried to tie Kongo in the clinch and on the canvas, but nothing helped.

In the co-headliner David Rickels pressed John Alessio against the cage landing devastating knees and punches in the clinch. The Canadian had no answer for the attacks and only covered himself. When the match was nearly stopped, Rickels landed an illegal knee to the face of the grounded opponent and unfortunately the fight ended in a no-contest.

Also worth to mention is the middleweight bout between Hisaki Kato and Joe Schilling. Both fighters traded punches, but Kato wanted to wrestle with the kickboxing Champion. On the mat Kato was beating Schilling. In the second round the Japanese suddenly placed nice superman punch sending Schilling to deep sleep.

<![CDATA[Conor McGregor has a theory about Jose Aldo's injury]]>Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:56:54 GMThttp://combatbear.com/6/post/2015/06/conor-mcgregor-has-a-theory-about-jose-aldos-injury.html
After the recent news about Jose Aldo's possible withdrawal from the Featherweight Championship match against Conor McGregor due to a rib injury which was followed by a UFC official statement which calmed down the MMA community, "The Notorious" gave his theory on what had happened to the Champion.
"It turned out he (Aldo) just had a little period pain" the Irishman wrote on Twitter. 

For challenger McGregor to be rude to his future opponents has just become a habit, another thing is if he really gets under the skin of Aldo - could he claim the belt at UFC 189?
