The UFC cuts Young Mexican Phenom Yair Rodriquez?
Eng | Maori
Ko te whakatau ka tae noa mai i nga ra e rua i muri mai i te korero a White ko te pakanga i whakaturia i te mahi a-kaute Aug. 4 mai i Staples Center i LA White i kii atu ko Rodriguez, Nama 15 i roto i nga mahinga piupiu hou, he korero hou nei. e kii ana kua kore ano ia i te whawhai ki te taitara taitara o mua me te hoa mexican Ricardo Llamas.
E ai ki a Dana White, Ko te tau o te tangata i te tau, kaore i te whawhai ki a Lamas, kaore ia e hiahia ki te whawhai i tetahi tangata i raro ia ia i roto i te whakataunga ka huri a Rodriguez ia Zabit Magomedsharipov mo UFC 227 i te Aug. 4 i Los Angeles. Ka taea e ia te haere ki tetahi atu wahi ka tangi te tumuaki. Kaore he whakamahi mo ia. Ka karanga ia ki te whawhai i nga korero rupahu. He korero pono tenei.
Earlier this year, Rodriguez said he was close to a return, and intended to move to Las Vegas to train at the UFC's Performance Institute. Since his last bout ended in a loss, technically the UFC can cut him from the roster. It is just interesting that White would openly say that it was retribution for turning down fight offers, which is also within the fighter’s rights to do.
I mua atu i tenei tau, ka mea a Rodriguez, e tata ana ia ki te hokinga atu, a, ko te hiahia kia neke atu ki Las Vegas ki te whakangungu i te UFC Mahi Mahi. Mai i tana mutunga whakamutunga ka mate, ka taea e te UFC te hatepe ia ia i te raupapa. He mea whakamiharo ma White e whakaatu mai ko te utu mo te huri i nga tuku whawhai, kei roto hoki i nga mana o te toa ki te mahi.
Once touted as a rising star and the UFC banking on him to be the future face of the Mexican fight scene market to being someone who was quickly released from the roster, all in a short span of time. This sad fate seems to be the case of Yair Rodriguez, who is still just peaking his prime. It’s kinda disappointing to see the end of Rodriguez’s UFC tenure this way.
Rodriguez who is now 10-2 MMA, and 6-1 in the UFC had been on an almost unstoppable streak with six straight wins inside the UFC octagon, which included a dominant 2nd round TKO finish of former champion BJ "the Prodigy" Penn in the UFC Fight Night 103 main event in january last year. In 2014 he was the tournament champion of the "The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America" television series in Mexico City beating first runner up Leandro Morales.
The UFC then booked him against former champion Frankie Edgar. In which we saw Edgar dominating Rodriguez in a 2nd round TKO, and Rodriguez has not fought since that May 2017 defeat because of injury and now when he’ll fight next and for whom is anybody’s guess. It’s probably a tough spot now for the TUF Latin America winner, but with his flashy fighting style and solid Mexican fanbase, offers from other organizations would likely come pouring in eager to get the young prospect signed. What's weird is that no reply or issued statement has come from his camp yet.
Mai i te whakaarohia he whetu piki ka taea te kawe i te maatau Mexican mo te UFC, kia puta mai i te reta, i te tau katoa? Koinei te take mo Yair Rodriguez, ko te mea kei te haere tonu ia i tana waitohu. Ko te mutunga o te mutunga o te whakataunga UFC o Rodriguez. Ko te whakatairanga i whakaarohia i mua ko te 25 tau te pakeke o Mexican he matua ki te whakauru atu ki roto i te maakete o Mexico.
Ko Rodriguez te 10-2 MMA, me te 6-1 o te UFC i runga i te pukapuka me nga toa toa e ono hei whakatuwhera i tana mahi UFC, i uru atu ki te whakataetae TKO tuarua o te toa BJ "te Prodigy" o mua i te UFC Fight Night 103 mahi matua i te marama o Hanuere i te tau whakamutunga. He kaitono ia i runga i te "Ultimate Fighter: Latin America" ??raupapa tuturu i roto i 2014, a tino riro te whakataetae ma te hinga Leandro Morales i Mexico City.
Na te UFC i tuku ia ia ki te toa tuatahi o Frankie Edgar. I kite a Edgar ki a Rodriguez i te whakataetae TKO tuarua, a kihai i whawhai a Rodriguez mai i te marama o Maehe 2017 i te mea he whara me te wa e whawhai ana ia i muri nei, a, ko wai e whakaarohia ana e tetahi. He raruraru pea mo te whakataetae TUF Latin Amerika, engari ki tana ahua riri me te piringa o te Mexican, e kore pea e kore he kaiwhaiwhai me nga tuku mai i etahi atu whakahaere. Ko nga mema o Rodriguez i kore i tuwhera tonu ki te korero.
True to the word, news travel fast as recent update provides that Bellator president Scott Coker already has his eyes on signing the newly minted Free Agent. A recent article on MMAJunkie appeared and he indeed confirms having spoken to Rodrigue's camp with the intention of bringing him to the fold and this was shortly aftrer the Bellator 199 weigh ins.
Despite the interest, the Bellator's executive says that he is awaiting confirmation that the cutting is a done deal because if it wasn't then serious negotiations with all just be wasted. Implying that the UFC president may just be emotional and change his mind all of a sudden. Despite the calm and slow demeanor he was quick to point out that no matter who the free agent is if he is at least top ten in the rankings then they really are serious in speaking and coming to terms.
He pono ki te kupu, ka tere haere nga korero me te whakahoutanga o tenei wa e whakaatu ana ko Bellator President Scott Coker ana kanohi ki te hainatanga i te Kaihaututu Motuhake hou. I puta mai tetahi tuhinga mo MMA Junkie me te whakaatu mai a Coker i tana korero ki a ratou i mua me te hiahia ki te kawe ia ia ki te roopu, a, kaore i te tata te whakakore i te Bellator 199.
Ahakoa te hiahia, ko te rangatira o Bellator e kii ana e hiahia ana ia ki te whakauru he mahi pai mo te kotinga, no te mea ehara i te mea kaore i raweke nga whiriwhiringa nui me nga mea katoa. Ko te korero mo te perehitini o te UFC he raruraru noa iho, ka whakarereke i tona hinengaro. Ahakoa te ahua pouri me te whakaheke o te ahua, ka tere tonu ia ki te whakaatu i te mea ko wai te kaitohutohu koreutu mehemea ko ia te nuinga o te tekau i roto i te waitohu, ka tino kaha te korero me te haere mai ki nga tikanga.
