Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

Yahoo Japan: Sakuraba hospitalized, fighter status in doubt Kazushi Sakuraba’s hospital trip is making national headlines on news wires in Japan, as this is mushrooming into a major story that could dominate the fight industry for the rest of this year. Major speculation in the various Japanese media outlets that retirement is impending, but the […]

Sakuraba in hospital?

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

Tokyo Sports reports on their front page that Kazushi Sakuraba was urgently taken to the hospital after training (collapsing). The paper raises the question as to whether or not Sakuraba will have his last fight on October 9th for HERO’s at Yokohama Arena. If you can read Japanese, keep your eyes open to the thread […]

PRIDE trashes UFC in Japanese media

Monday, September 25th, 2006

By Zach Arnold PRIDE boss Nobuyuki Sakakibara mocks Dana White and accuses Tim Sylvia of running away from Emelianenko Fedor. Here is more information about PRIDE tying up with Entriq, the same company that MTV & WWE uses for DRM video technology. My commentary on this can viewed in full-post mode.

Thoughts on Kurt Angle & TNA

Monday, September 25th, 2006

By Sheldon Goldberg Sheldon Goldberg is the President and co-owner of both New England Championship Wrestling and World Women’s Wrestling. He is based out of the Boston, Massachusetts area. The sad part about following pro wrestling these days is that nothing seems shocking anymore. The many deaths and tragedies that professional wrestling has endured over […]

UFC: Used For Cash?

Monday, September 25th, 2006

By Dave Ditch UFC is the cool kid everybody wants to be around. Some get to be real friends, while others just want the rub of popularity. PRIDE has been looking for the rub. Kurt Angle’s reference of UFC several months ago on ECW was an attempt to get some rub. Was Kurt Angle’s inference […]

Shelby Walker found dead

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

Female boxer & MMA fighter Shelby Walker (information on her can be found here, here, here, and here) was found dead due to a suspected overdose of pain medication.

Kurt Angle heads to TNA

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

Story information here. My first reaction — with Angle on TNA and Spike TV backing both TNA & UFC, the chances of Angle appearing in UFC (if he goes the MMA-and-wrestling combo route) just increased significantly. Unless, of course (as Dave Ditch pointed out to me), both Angle and TNA used UFC as nothing more […]

Renzo beats Miletich in the IFL

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

9/23 Moline, Illinois event results here. In-depth report here. A live event report from the show. Maybe the IFL can sign Yves Edwards soon. I couldn’t find any mainstream media/newspaper coverage coming out of the show. Update: I just watched the first of the Portland-taped IFL shows on FSN. This show featured Bas Rutten’s Anacondas […]

UFC 63: Hughes vs. Penn

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

By Erin Bucknell Quick event results recap here. Hmm, Penn certainly seems excessively confident. I really hope he’s been training hard and not just relying on his former win. Cause, that? Not such a good plan. Especially after his performance against GSP. Jens has been accused of having a style designed to “not lose”? Umm, […]

Japanese arrest happening soon?

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

Apparently, the last editions of Weekly Fight are going out with a bang. Over at NHB News, they’re talking about a claim in WF that someone associated (how tight or loose the association is not said) around the Japanese MMA industry is about to get arrested soon. The question is whom it will be. Update: […]

Dana White vs. Jerry Millen

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

By Zach Arnold If the name Jerry Millen doesn’t sound familiar to you, then here’s a brief description of him. He’s based out of Detroit, made his name in television production, has done some stints in Hollywood, and does all of PRIDE’s American video editing. With this in mind, here’s quite a news item (from […]

MMA media circus

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

Los Angles Times – Altering the Perception (about UFC 63) Fox Sports – Hughes-Penn rematch two years in the making and UFC 63 predictions Canadian Press (via CBC Sports) – Hawaii meets country as BJ Penn tackles UFC champion Matt Hughes and The Fight Network attempts to expand into the American marketplace Kurt Angle quits […]

The Ultimate Fighter Season 4, Episode 6

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

By Erin Bucknell Team MoJo is having fun knowing that they get to pick the next fight. McCarthy is upset that Mikey lost his fight. The guys then dumb him Captain Miserable for his pessimistic outlook on life. McCarthy gets annoyed that someone wrote that he needs a personality and goes on a bit of […]
