Dana White talks about fighters using steroids

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

By Zach Arnold First, Kalib Starnes comments on marijuana and steroids. For a perfect summation of my feelings about MMA’s drug culture, read Fightlinker’s entry today. My argument has never been one about morality (athletes are athletes — they are always looking for an edge), but rather about the health of the fighters. Time in […]

Monday media marks: Fedor must make concessions for UFC?

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

Quote of the day from 411 Mania: With due respect to both sides, this is really a bunch of needless whining. I’m sure the UFC would like nothing more than to throw a couple hundred thousand dollars at Fedor and have the number one fighter in the world in their pocket, and at the same […]

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

God of Pro-Wrestling, Mr. Karl Gotch, dies — Yahoo Japan HP Report here. The Sports Navigator report on Yahoo quotes the Observer as its source on the story. It is so important to stress what an important figure Gotch was in the history of Japanese professional wrestling, which led to the transition to Mixed Martial […]

Round two of UFC and Ricky Hatton

Friday, July 27th, 2007

Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports reported on Friday night that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will fight Ricky Hatton in Las Vegas on December 8th. Eastside Boxing reports that the MGM Grand Garden Arena is being discussed as a possible host for the event. Why is it possibly news-of-concern for UFC? December 8th is when UFC is […]

Friday fight notes: It’s Ultimate Fighting, not MMA

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

I want to send my condolences to the family of Jesse Marunde, as news hit yesterday of Marunde’s death at age 27 due to a massive heart attack. If you have ever seen World’s Strongest Man events on ESPN TV, you would instantly recognize the American strongman. The Cherry Hill Courier-Post is doing an MMA […]

Michigan State House passes MMA legislation bill

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

By Zach Arnold Here’s the PDF of the bill that allows the newly-named Oregon State Athletic Commission to regulate MMA. I’m calling out all the Michigan MMA writers here (Aaron Crossen, Royal Burnell, etc.) to spend a half-hour and look over today’s legislative material. There’s a lot of detailed information in the documents and it […]

Thursday trash talk: Whatcha going do, brother?!

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

QVC is selling the Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill with Interchangeable Grill, Griddle, & Waffle Plates. The ‘Ultimate Grill’ for $100 USD? Wonder if UFC is paying attention? I feel the need to state that this has been one hell of a July in terms of news. I want to create a poll asking the readers […]

Profiles in Courage: Leonard Shapiro

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

By Zach Arnold Washington Post columnist Leonard Shapiro is calling for MMA to be banned from TV. As you can imagine, my reaction to this is the same as his reaction would be if I told him that women’s golf shouldn’t be on TV. Wouldn’t it be nice to forever ban Ultimate Fighting from the […]
