Joe Schilling intends to return to the competition at MMA due to the fact that there are better money there than in Kickboxing.
Schilling gained recognition in the world of kickboxing in which he fought 32 fights in total, of which he won 23 (13 by KO) and 9 lost (5 by KO). He is the champion of the GLORY middleweight tournament from 2013. Currently, he has a series of four wins in a row at the Bellator Kickboxing Event. However, it turns out that kickboxing does not give him enough earnings and therefore Schilling will return to MMA.
His last fight in MMA, Schilling fought in June 2015 at Bellator 139, losing it by knockout in the second round in the clash with Hisakim Kato. Schilling cannot boast of such a good MMA record as in Kickboxing, because his balance is 2-5. Being a guest of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Schilling explained that money is the reason he wants to get back into competition in the cage.
"I want to continue to grow financially. Money motivates me a lot and I think that I have achieved the appropriate level of this sport (in kickboxing), so to speak. MMA is right next ... It makes sense. I want to fight big fights and earn as much money as I can before I retire. You can not just give up, you have to find a way to sell yourself and I do not think that kickboxing can help me. "
Joe Schilling lost in MMA with such fighters as Matt Makowski, Tony Ferguson, Damion Douglas, Rafael Carvalho and already mentioned Hisaki Kato while winning in the battles with Maurice Doucette and Melvin Manhoef. Four of the five defeated fights ended ahead of time just like two wins fights. For winning with Melvin Manhoef, Schilling received the prize "Knockout 2014".
The UFC organization updated its rankings after last week's UFC 225 in Chicago; followed by several significant changes.
The biggest changes took place in the ranking of the heavy division, due to the fight of Curtis Blaydes with Alistaire Overeem. Blaydes defeated Overeem by TKO in the third round and thus jumped by two points, currently occupying a very high # 2 place in the ranking of the heavy division. In front of him are just Francis Ngannou and master Stipe Miocic. In turn, Alistair Overeem fell from the second to the # 4 position in the ranking for Alexander Volkov. Similarly, Sergio Pettis is currently # 2 in the rankings of the flywieght Division, and it is a jump three times after winning the fight with Josep Benavidez, who dropped to # 3. Pettis defeated Benavidez through a non-uniform decision. After Henry Cejudo tries his second time in battle against champion Demetriouse Johnson at UFC 227, perhaps Pettis will be next in line for his belt. The changes also took place in the ranking of the feather-weight division. Ricardo Lamas after losing the battle with Mirsad Bektić by a non-uniform decision, fell by four positions to place # 11, and Bektić was promoted by four points to place # 7. For Ricardo Lamasa it is a huge drop considering that he was the contender for the title.

It seems that the problems of Conor McGregor resulting from his attack on a bus with UFC fighters at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York will not be too serious. Former UFC champion Conor McGregor was scheduled to appear yesterday on June 14 in a court caused by three charges of assault and one criminal offense. McGregor commented on the social media date of the hearing, only that he intends to fly out to New York on Tuesday to face the accusations before the Thursday's hearing. According to the Business Insider report, law experts do not expect too severe a penalty imposed by the court on the Irishman. William Kephart, a former prosecutor from Long Island, told USA Today that McGregor's law situation is "just an ordinary case." In addition, Steven Raiser, another former New York prosecutor, told USA Today that the allegations were "not very serious." He added that "the good news for McGregor is that the most serious charge is the payment for property damage. Without previous criminal history, this penalty will be reduced as part of the charge. "
If former New York prosecutors are right, McGregor will be legally allowed to return to the Octagon at the end of 2018, which will of course make the long-awaited return and potential fight against the lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov possible (if the negotiations are successful).
