Austin Jones Returns to Nebraska as Main Event at MCF 17

Austin Jones MMA Nebraska

Former Nebraska Cornhusker Austin Jones grew up in Aurora, Colorado. Jones said he was convinced to play football at NU after falling in love with the fan base after seeing a game in Boulder as a child.

“The fans were a 100% behind the team. If they were up, if they were down, it didn’t matter the fans were cheering. No one leaves early and win, lose or draw that fan base has no quit”.

Austin Jones

While in college Jones was first exposed to the UFC at a college bar watching with friends. Jones was immediately sucked in and decided if he didn’t make it to the NFL that this was a sport he could compete in. So after college and football we’re over that’s exactly what the Cornhusker did.

Austin fought a total of 8 amateur bouts going 7-1 before joining the pro ranks. Jones started 2-0, but after tasting defeat for the first time Jones fell on some hard times,

“After that loss, I was in a hurry and rushed things. I didn’t take time to fix the problems and before I knew it I was on a 3 fight skid”.

Since that time it seems Jones and his coaches at Factory X have found the recipe to right the ship. Winner of 4 in a row and 5 of his last six including 2 on National TV Jones isn’t looking to slow down anytime soon.

“Anthony Smith has really taken me under his wing. I think Anthony and the way he carries himself, his mental approach to the game, it gives a lot of up and coming pros on our team hope and a blue print to follow. It reminds you can always turn things around”.

Austin Jones looks to continue his winning ways this Saturday in North Platte in MCF. You can catch his Main Event fight along with the rest of an action-packed card live on PPV only at MMAFUTURES.com!!!

Jorge Masvidal Dominates Headlines At UFC Fight Night: London


UFC Fight Night 147 turned into the Jorge Masvidal show in more ways than one.

Masvidal scored a thunderous knockout vs. Darren Till in the main event from The O2 in London. And followed that performance up by storming Leon Edwards backstage during post-fight interviews.

Nevertheless, Masvidal walked away with a monumental win and two bonus checks for his showing.

Edwards picked up a co-main event split decision vs. Gunnar Nelson on the night, and is likely to square off with Masvidal later this year.

Complete results are below:

Jorge Masvidal def. Darren Till via KO (strike) at 3:05 of Round 2

Leon Edwards def. Gunnar Nelson via split decision (29-27, 29-28, 28-29)

Nathaniel Wood def. Jose Quinonez via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:46 of Round 2

Claudio Silva def. Danny Roberts via submission (armbar) at 3:37 of Round 3

Jack Marshman def. John Phillips via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)

Arnold Allen def. Jordan Rinaldi via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 29-28)

Marc Diakiese def. Joseph Duffy via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

Nebraska’s Grant Dawson Earns First UFC Victory


Grant Dawson, who fought for several major regional promotions around the Midwest before getting his big break on Dana White’s Contender Series, scored his first UFC victory this past weekend.

The Stromsburg, Nebraska native improved to 13-1 with a decision victory over Julian Erosa at UFC Fight Night 146. The win was his fourth consecutive since a loss to Hugh Pulley back in 2016.

For Dawson, the victory was important – but left him still wanting more out of his own performance, as he told MMAjunkie.

“Obviously we wanted the finish but can’t get them all that way,” Dawson said. “Dominant performance, I got one 10-8 round I believe. Super happy. First fight in the UFC, goal was just to get the win. We got it and we’ll go back to the drawing board and see what’s next.

“I made some mistakes, he made some mistakes and that’s how we grow. My coaches were telling me, ‘You make mistakes or otherwise you would be world champion already.’ We make mistakes, we fix them and we go back to the drawing board.”

This was Dawson’s first fight since 2017 when he bested Adrian Diaz via second round submission with UFC president Dana White watching. He fought five times in 2016 and five times in 2015.

“Let’s get after it,” Dawson said. “I’ve had 14 months off, I’m ready to go again. My jaw hurts a little bit but I just got punched in the face.”

The Krav Maga Argument

There are many trendy styles of fighting in martial arts and they have several things in common. There are also vast differences. We can classify these into Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Brazillian Jui Jitsu (BJJ) and Krav Maga (KM). All three are relatively new in terms of how long they have been practiced on the world scene.
