The IFL stock this morning has plunged down to $0.33/share.
The UFC 77 payscale.
Bleacher Report calls Randy Couture a joke. The author continues to fan the flames:
Your all entitled to your opinions but mine still stands. You say those cheesy movies give him lots of money..then I say he’s a sell out. When does it become more about money than fighting? I’ll be here watching the real fighters. And as I stated before goo, Couture certainly has earned the right to pick his last remaining fights, but then why did he decide to fight for the belt, only to leave so soon. I would of liked to see how far he could of gone with it.
Sylvia isn’t a highly skilled fighter. The reason he’s a top guy is his size and his sheer power. But he hurts himself, as I said above, by not throwing more. He needs to be active, active, active, active.

Eddie Goldman was at the M-1 press conference in NYC on Monday and has some audio clips from the event. He also has some suggestions on how to make Fedor a star in America. MMA Analyst has more details about M-1, Fedor, and how Dana White’s mouth played a role in the way things unfolded. Ben Fowlkes has more details about who’s backing M-1. Plus, an interesting press release about White Chocolate Management working with Latin Television.
Adam Swift has another update about UFC fighters allegedly having problems paying fighters they had sponsorship deals with. I’ll ask the question again — how can a company that is the main sponsor of the largest MMA promotion in the world be able to pay UFC but not supposedly be able to pay the fighters it has separate deals with?
Is UFC throwing UK fighters under the bus?
Randy Couture’s press conference will be carried live on HDNet. If anyone manages to record the video of this and put it on YouTube or DailyMotion the same day, it would be much appreciated it.
