MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR TUESDAY: CHASE SHERMAN NOW FACES DMITRY POBEREZHETS AT UFC 211

As I reported on Twitter, heavyweight Chase Sherman has stepped up on short note to confront Dmitry Poberezhets in UFC 211 next month in Dallas. Sherman (9-3) replaces the injured Jarjis Danho inside this struggle and will be searching for his first UFC victory. The 27-year-old has gone 0-2 in the UFC, dropping back-to-back conflicts against Justin Ledet and most recently Walt Harris in UFC Fight Night 103 at January. Meanwhile, the Poberezhets (24-5-1) makes his promotional and North American debut on the heels of a 15-fight unbeaten series. The Ukrainian fighter hasn’t lost a fight since 2012. With this latest addition, here’s an updated look at the card… Main Card (c) Stipe Miocic (16-2) vs. Junior dos Santos (18-4) — Heavyweight Title Fight (c) Joanna Jedrzejczyk (13-0) vs. Jessica Andrade (16-5) — Strawweight Title Fight Demian Maia (24-6) vs. Jorge Masvidal (32-11) Frankie Edgar (21-5-1) vs. Yair Rodriguez (10-1) Henry Cejudo (10-2) vs. Sergio Pettis (15-2) Preliminary Card Eddie Alvarez (28-5) vs. Dustin Poirier (21-5) Jason Knight (16-2) vs. Chas Skelly (17-2) David Branch (20-3) vs. Krzysztof Jotko (19-1) Marco Polo Reyes (7-3) vs. James Vick (10-1) Fight Pass Preliminary Card Jessica Aguilar (19-5) vs. Cortney Casey (6-4) Enrique Barzola (12-3-1) vs. Gabriel Benitez (19-5) UFC releases Michael Graves after 2016 domestic violence arrest UFC officials announced Monday the welterweight Michael Graves (6-0-1) was published from the promotion after being arrested in October 2016 for domestic violence. Here’s an official statement from the UFC: Back in November 2016, welterweight Michael Graves was eliminated from his UFC bout after his arrest in Fulton County, Florida. As a possible violation of the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy, the UFC company temporarily barred Graves from contest pending the completion of a third-party evaluation. Based on the findings of the thorough inspection and investigation, UFC has suggested Graves that he has been released from his contract effective immediately. UFC needs all athletes to act in an ethical and accountable manner, as evidenced from the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC retains its athletes to the maximum standard and will continue to take proper action when and if warranted.
