Jeff Comstock will be working on a longer article tonight for the site about the new backers of M-1. What a strange situation that is. To prepare you for Jeff’s longer article, here are the news developments from today:
Monte Cox, agent of a lot of MMA stars, will be the company’s CEO. MMA Analyst has you covered in regards to Sibling Entertainment Group, the new backers of M-1. UFC Mania claims that M-1 will go under PRIDE rules for their bouts. Notes from today’s press conference at The Fight Network, MMA Junkie, and the Observer. More details here, including discussion of working with former PRIDE staffers. Huh…
On Mike Sawyer’s newest radio show, he and Oliver Copp talk about the upcoming Xtreme Couture vs. Kobra Kai 11/3 submission grappling event in Las Vegas.
MMA Junkie has a new interview with Ken Shamrock. MMA Madness has an interview with Jens Pulver. In a new interview Sean Sherk did with Five Ounces of Pain, he claims that he got stiffed on money by Xyience.
Here are the details about the upcoming press conference in Las Vegas on Thursday with Randy Couture.
Luke Thomas points out some problems with the new CompuStrike system in MMA.
Results from the Cage Wars: Celtic Rage event that was promoted over the weekend.
Sam Stout vs. Terry Etim is apparently booked for UFC 80 this January in Newcastle, England.
Gregg Doyel at CBS Sports is angry about the judging that took place at UFC 77. To White’s defense (and to my knowledge), he didn’t pick the judges here for the UFC 77 event.
Brock Lesnar sums up his attitude on life:
“I went from Wrestlemania right to the NFL and the Vikings training camp and was like ‘what the hell am I doing here?’” he recalled. “I should have taken a break, but one thing, if anybody really knows me, they know I dive in headfirst and whatever happens happens. I’ll deal with the consequences later. You only live one time, and what I hate are those people that can’t make a decision. I just go for it. Of course, as I get older and a little more experienced, some of these headfirst things I think about a little bit, but I’m still kinda the same way.”
