The UFC has released the fourth episode of UFC 227 Embedded online.

"This is a dream come true, from Olympic gold medallist to UFC champion", Cejudo said.

Above is live video of the event's post-fight press conference which kicks off approximately 30 minutes after the main event between Dillashaw and Garbrandt comes to a close (courtesy of the UFC). Dillashaw finished it by stunning Garbrandt with a series of blows, dropping the challenger and then battering him against the cage until referee Herb Dean stopped it with 50 seconds left in the round.

Bush's doctor's killing may have been act of revenge
According to his former friend, Pappas is believed to have had a "hit list" and was potentially on the hunt for his next victim. Police say they've been looking for Joseph Pappas , 62, who is accused of shooting and killing Dr.

The main event features bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw (15-3) as a very slight -120 favorite on the UFC 227 odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com taking on No. 1 contender Cody Garbrandt (11-1) in a rematch of their brutal November 135-pound title fight.

But it was Garbrandt's power which was on show first, as he hurt Dillashaw with a big right hand.

After his historic flyweight title win, Cejudo said he wanted a crack at the bantamweight title next, and a shot at the night's main event victor. But if they make that, I'm excited."It sounds like a fun fight. Here now", before welcoming a challenge from newly-minted flyweight champion Henry Cejudo in a prospective "catchweight" bout.

United Nations envoy to Yemen invites warring parties to meet in September
The port is the sole source of aid for northern Yemen, and is believed to supply food for around 8.4 million Yemenis. Six weeks ago, the Saudi-led coalition launched a major offensive to drive Houthi rebels out of the city.

The fight didn't start out in Cejudo's favor as he appeared to turn an ankle in the opening round and limped at times as Johnson continued to switch stances and score with strikes from the outside. I only said Brian Ortega's name because he is ranked number one but my goal is to be world champion and I think I have earned my opportunity. No. 8 in Johnson's run was a first-round TKO (knees to the body) win over Cejudo in April 2016.

Last night (Aug. 4), UFC 227 took place inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Cejudo was born in Los Angeles, and he won an Olympic gold medal in freestyle wrestling as a 21-year-old phenomenon in 2008, becoming the youngest American to win a gold medal.

Short-term health plans cheaper but cover less
The Obama administration limited the sale of short-term plans to 90-day periods as a stop-gap between more robust plans. CMS said the average short-term plan cost $124 a month in 2016 versus roughly $400 a month for an Obamacare plan.

A repeat of their first meeting more than two years ago in which Johnson won by first-round TKO looked possible, but it would soon become obvious that Cejudo had improved immeasurably since his first title shot at UFC 197. Johnson is a sizable -500 favorite with Cejudo at +350.
