Time to get everyone to advertise their own MMA-related blogs or sites that they visit. Post URLs, RSS feed links, etc. right here.

Saturday side suplex: Contracts not assignable for you!

Friday, March 30th, 2007

The Sioux City Journal reports that Marc Ratner is not happy about the Iowa Senate’s decision to deregulate MMA. The bill’s top sponsor says he passed it because politicians couldn’t agree on whether or not to ban MMA in the state. A very interesting card lined up by DEEP for their 4/13 Korakuen Hall show […]

Friday fence grabbing: The new PRIDE

Friday, March 30th, 2007

Humorless, nutty, and screwed by the mainstream media — a description of UFC fans. Ed. — The default setting is comments off. I just turned them on now. Sorry. Mad Squabbles: Cage Rage and Sky TV The San Mateo County Times (California): Pacifica fighters to mix it up in ‘ultimate’ weekend event The Chicago Sun […]

Thursday trash talk: UFC gets major media coverage

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

Kakutolog: Nobuyuki Sakakibara interview in Kami no Puroresu For those who understand Japanese, here’s some video of comments from Nobuyuki Sakakibara about the PRIDE asset sale agreement. Also, site commenter Body Shots posted this over at Sherdog. IFL: UFC/PRIDE merger good for us So says Gareb Shamus in an interview with the North Jersey Media […]

Wacky Wednesday: Zuffa takes over the world

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

The IFL did a 0.8 rating for week three on My Network TV. 0.8, 0.7, and 0.8 for the first three weeks. I receive little to no feedback at all from readers about the IFL Battleground show. If you watch it, give me your thoughts about the program. Softbank’s sponsorship tie-up with K-1 is drawing […]

Media wars

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

By Zach Arnold Gryphon points out two excellent items in the Japanese media today. The first one involves Sakakibara on Elite XC and the second one involves Ed Fishman. On the first point, Sakakibara claims that Gary Shaw wanted to do a reverse stock merger with DSE/PRIDE but that he wouldn’t do it because essentially […]

Tuesday media turmoil: MMA wars rage on

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

Today, I ask all of you to help out in terms of gathering of stories, videos, links, etc. Please add your contributions in the comments section, especially on the K-1 press conference at the LA Coliseum. That should be an interesting media session. Nobuyuki Sakakibara & Lorenzo Fertitta shake hands. The Associated Press has already […]

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

Image credit: Livedoor By Zach Arnold Here’s a picture taken at 5 PM JST outside of Roppongi Hills Arena.

IFL on MNTV – Week 3

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Post your comments (if you saw the show) here. First notes within the first 10 minutes – they are pushing 9 fights (again), they are using the old footage from last year pushing Renzo vs. Miletich (this was good), and they are pushing the New York Pitbulls team with Renzo doing a lot of talking […]

Insider hardball – UFC’s options with PRIDE

Monday, March 26th, 2007

By Zach Arnold Sankei Sports has a report today quoting a DSE employee, denying that UFC has bought PRIDE. The staffer claims that at the Tuesday press conference at Roppongi Hills Arena in Tokyo, PRIDE will announce a tie-up with UFC. The only thing consistently said throughout the various Japanese newspapers is that DSE’s last […]

Monday media mayhem: Chuck Liddell drug tested

Monday, March 26th, 2007

I am begging the fine readers of this site (and those who aren’t) to help us promote our coverage of the PRIDE & K-1 PR sessions to the blogs and other major sites. I’m amazed by the traction that the ‘big boy’ sites (and you know who you exactly are — not you, Jordan) are […]
