Nicco Montano kicks Barb Honchak during their semifinal matchup
The first finalist in the quest to crown the new UFC women's flyweight champion is now set following the latest episode of The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion.

Team Alvarez fighter and No. 2 seed Barb Honchak faced off with unlikely contender and No. 14 seed Nicco Montano, who has quickly become the most talked about competitor in this tournament following wins over No. 3 seed Lauren Murphy and No. 6 seed Montana Stewart.

Montano didn't seem to be on anybody's radar when this season started, but she's no longer the dark horse considering her performances thus far. In preparation for the fight with Honchak, Montano was supremely confident that she could get the job done again, and her head coach Justin Gaethje seemed to have plenty of faith that she would get the victory.

As for Honchak, she's been here before, having reigned as the Invicta FC flyweight champion and entering the tournament as such a high seed. Of course, with her resume, expectations have run very high on Honchak, but her two wins thus far have proven that she is no fluke or flash in the pan. Even with three years away from fighting, Honchak hasn't skipped a beat in the tournament, but she knew she had a tough task ahead of her with Montano standing across on the other side of the Octagon.

With training time wrapped up, it was time for Honchak and Montano to battle it out to determine the first finalist who will move on to fight for the inaugural UFC women's flyweight title in December.

BARB HONCHAK VS. NICCO MONTANO

ROUND 1
Honchak opens with a stiff inside leg kick before looking for boxing combinations with Montano doing the same. Less than a minute into the opening round, Honchak drops down for her first takedown attempt but Montano defends well, continuously fighting for position while working to escape the cage. Montano fires some hard knees that land to Honchak's midsection before the fighters finally break. Back in the center, Honchak slams another leg kick before swimming inside for the clinch again with a couple hard knees as Montano counters with a big elbow on the break. Honchak continues to look for the clinch but Montano is doing a great job throwing a barrage of knees to the midsection every time they get locked up. Another clinch from Honchak ends up with Montano reversing for a takedown of her own as the fighters drop to the ground. On top, Montano fires away with short punches and elbows as Honchak defends from her half guard position on the mat. Montano nearly gets the mount but Honchak is able to scramble to stay out of that position, still eating a few more shots before the round ends.

ROUND 2
Honchak looks for an inside leg kick while Montano fires an overhand right as the second round gets underway. The fighters quickly move back into the clinch, with Montano pressing her weight against Honchak on the fence. Honchak tries to reverse positions but Montano muscles her back to the fence as she continues to throw short knees to the thighs and body. After separating and resetting in the center, Honchak lands a nasty left-right combination that clips Montano hard on the jaw. Honchak uses the opening to look for the body lock and takedown but Montano resists while battling for position against the cage wall. Honchak finally abandons the position and tries to throw a punch on the exit as the fighters begin exchanging strikes again. Honchak is definitely landing the better punches on the feet, including several hard right hands that tag Montano whenever she steps forward in an exchange. Late in the round, with just seconds remaining, Honchak is able to move from the clinch into a big slam takedown, but the horn sounds almost immediately after.

ROUND 3
Honchak is still landing with a series of hard right hands as the final round gets underway. Montano throws a head kick that Honchak catches but in her attempt to take advantage of the position she gives up her back. Montano latches on to her back, sinks her hooks in and she starts fishing for the rear naked choke. Honchak tries to turn into the mount but Montano stays on top until they get stuck in a scramble working back up from the ground. Montano holds on to the body lock as the fighters back into the cage but Honchak is able to stay patient until working her way free. Honchak tries for another takedown but Montano resists again as she starts throwing uppercuts and punches from the inside. Honchak finally gives up the position with Montano still throwing shots. Honchak keeps the pressure going with takedown attempts against the cage but Montano hammers away at her with short punches until she's forced to readjust every time she drops down trying to bring the fight to the mat. With about 20 seconds to go, coach Justin Gaethje begins screaming for a takedown and Nicco Montano celebrates after defeating Barb Honchak in their semifinal matchupMontano listens as she picks up and dumps Honchak on her back. The final horn sounds after a three-round battle.

Nicco Montano def. Barb Honchak by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)

Montano was overrun by emotion as she celebrated the victory. After entering the tournament as the No. 14 overall seed, she's now one win away from being called UFC champion.

“She's gonna win the belt,” Gaethje said about Montano. “She's gonna be the first 125-pound world champ ever.”

Gaethje certainly discovered a diamond in the rough with Montano in this tournament and now she's ready to sit back and watch the other semifinal fight to determine who she will be meeting in the live finale to determine the new women's 125-pound champion.

It all comes down to this: next week, No. 1 seed Roxanne Modafferi will look to continue her run towards redemption when she faces No. 12 seed and upset specialist Sijara Eubanks, who has knocked off two higher-ranked fighters thus far and she only needs one more to make her way to the final.

It all goes down next Wednesday night at 10pm ET on FS1 in the last episode of The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion.

Salikhov thrilled UFC debut is in

<a href='../fighter/Muslim-Salikhov'>Muslim Salikhov</a> (Photo by Mike Roach/Zuffa LLC)” align=”left”/>There is plenty of hype around the UFC debut of Muslim Salikhov against <a href=Alex Garcia this Saturday in Shanghai, but don’t expect the “King of Kung Fu” to be singing his own praises. In fact, if fans who don’t know of his previous fighting exploits want to know about what he brings to the table, he prefers to let their eyes – not their ears – figure it all out.

“If you check out my career you will see that I’m always looking to finish my opponents,” Salikhov said through translator Rizvan Magomedov. “That’s what I plan to do always. I never fight for points.”

He’s not exaggerating, either. As a pro in MMA, he’s 12-1 with 11 finishes (10 by knockout). In kickboxing, his reported record is 185-13-1 with 76 KOs. Yes, 185 wins, 76 by knockout.

“I don’t know how it happened,” he laughed. “I do what I love to do.”

Yet after doing pretty much everything in that world, the Dagestan native was looking for a new challenge. He found it.

“I was kind of tired of kickboxing and I found something new for me and attractive in MMA,” said the 33-year-old, who turned pro in MMA in 2011. Since then, it’s been a whirlwind of flashy finishes and jaw-dropping knockouts, most recently over a pair of UFC vets, Ivan Jorge and Melvin Guillard. Yet he remained patient, focused on getting the call from the UFC when the time was right.

“I started my career with the goal of fighting in the UFC,” he said. “That was the plan and we had a long road with tons of hard work behind that signing. I waited for it from last year when I heard that UFC was coming to China.”

Hmmm, a Dagestan native wanting nothing more than a UFC debut in China? Where did that come from? But it’s a natural wish from a fighter who not only made his name in China and became the only non-Chinese fighter to win the Wushu Sanda King’s Cup, but who was given the nickname “King of Kung Fu” for his skill in the art of Wushu Sanda, one he learned in the mountains of Dagestan at the renowned Five Directions of the World school.

“We have one of the best Wushu Sanda schools in the world,” he said. “We have a lot of world champions and Zabit Magomedsharipov is also from that school.”

Having both Salikhov and rising featherweight star Magomedsharipov on the same card is enough reason for fans to tune in to Saturday’s card, and Salikhov remembers what it’s like to be a fan, initially being attracted to martial arts by Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan movies. Now he’s back in China, a place he calls a second home, and it’s almost as if he’s going to be fighter and fan when he makes the walk to the Octagon to face Garcia.

“I was the one and only foreigner who ever became a King of Sanda in China,” he said. “Winning that openweight Grand Prix, I beat four Kings of Sanda in one night and became very famous in China. China became my second home after that. My fans love me, they gave huge support during my whole career out here and

But what about everything after November 25? How does he top this?

“You know,” he smiles, “The soldier who doesn’t want to become General is a bad soldier. My goal is the UFC belt. I always set a high goal in front of me, and I know that it’s not gonna be easy, but it’s my time.”

With win streak, Jingliang feels more pressure than ever

<a href='../fighter/Li-Jingliang'>Li Jingliang</a> of China celebrates after his decision victory over <a href='../fighter/Frank-Camacho'>Frank Camacho</a> of the Northern Mariana Islands in their welterweight bout during the <a href='../event/UFC-Silva-vs-Irvin'>UFC Fight Night </a>event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on June 17, 2017 in Singapore. (Photo by Brandon Magnus/Zuffa LLC)” align=”center”/>It’s almost eight years to the day since Li Jingliang last fought in Mainland China. That road streak ends this Saturday when he faces <a href=Zak Ottow in the co-main event of UFC Shanghai, and it’s not just an opportunity for “The Leech” to extend his current win streak to four, but to reflect on where he’s been in the years after that 2009 fight with Yun Tao Gong.

“I always believed one day I would fight on the Mainland again, and I didn’t wait for long,” Li said through a translator. “November 25th, not only myself but also a lot of other Chinese fighters, we will show the world our China power.”

Li is the flag bearer for his nation in the UFC, clearly the most accomplished Chinese fighter to compete in the Octagon. That comes with the usual perks, but it’s not all glory for the 29-year-old.

“I became more famous than before,” he said of how life has changed since his first UFC bout in 2014. “People recognize me on the street and I have more fans. At the same time, there is more pressure on your shoulders.”

More pressure to succeed, not just for himself, but for his peers, several of whom make their Octagon debut this weekend. In fact, seven Chinese newcomers make the walk with Li at Mercedes Benz Arena, setting the stage for bigger and better things for the MMA scene in China in the coming years.

“UFC sees the potential of the China market,” Li said. “Through PPTV’s broadcasting over the years, UFC has more and more fans in China. And the UFC also gives Chinese fighters the opportunities to train at the best MMA camps in the world for six months. We will not let UFC down.”

With all that said, it’s obvious that a lot of the responsibility for leading the charge falls on Li, who could point to his humility and team-first attitude as the secrets to his success and ability to handle such responsibility.

“A lot of people supported me through these years, and they are my motivation to stay consistent at the top,” he said. “I would not be who I am if my team, China Top Team, my family and my fans didn’t support me over and over again. They made huge sacrifices for me.”

In response, Li has put in the work in the gym and on fight night, compiling a 5-2 UFC record that includes three knockouts and a recent Fight of the Night bonus for his victory over Frank Camacho. This run has built him a growing fan base, not just at home, but around the globe.

“Every fighter that steps into the Octagon, they want to win the fight,” he said. “The desire for victory makes the fight exciting. No matter win or lose, you need to give everything you have in the Octagon.”

Li has, and now he’s on the upswing of his career because of it. That doesn’t mean it’s been easy getting here, but he’s determined that this is just the beginning.

“I’ve been through a lot of stuff all these years, the joys and sorrows of life,” he said. “But I have a dream. I want to win the UFC championship, and I want to bring a good life to my family. These things drive me to conquer everything. Life is getting better and better every day, and the future should be even better.”
