Some odd news & notes including MC Hammer in the MMA agency business

Some light article reading for your perusal as we head into the first of three UFC events in August. Sunday night on Versus from the San Diego Sports Arena.

Cain Velasquez training the house down for his ultimate heavyweight challenge

That’s an article from the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper in Australia. They interviewed him about his upcoming fight with Brock Lesnar and his engagement to girlfriend Michelle Borquez.

Phil Baroni pours his heart out about recent injury, survival in UFC

A tough article to read, especially considering his wife is working two jobs. Quite a contradiction compared to the financial path Cain is on right now.

Ben Rothwell undergoes ACL surgery, estimates nine-month recovery

He claims he tore the ACL when going for a takedown on Gilbert Yvel during their UFC 115 fight in Vancouver. Nine months is a very optimistic time frame. Maybe physically you can recover in nine months, but it takes a couple of years before you mentally get back the full confidence to use the knee full strength.

In move from Sacramento, James Irvin officially puts drug addiction behind him

Kind of an interesting story. Having to relocate to get away from the ‘enablers’ who helped fuel a drug problem is certainly a big deal for him personally.

Yushin Okami’s eyes remain on the Middleweight UFC prize

Injury leads Mission Viejo’s Mark Munoz to MMA stardom

I’m completely amazed at just how many people are picking Mark Munoz to beat him on Sunday night in their San Diego fight. That one loss to Chael Sonnen really lowered his stock big time in the eyes of a lot of people.

Jon Jones: Can the self-taught man survive the rigidity of Team Jackson?

He’s going into his fight against Vladimir Matyushenko as a -600 favorite.

Alchemist Management to Transform MMA management

MC Hammer as the front man for an MMA agency? I’ve said it all, especially with the awesome name of LEX MCMAHON. This agency represents Nate Marquardt, Tim Kennedy, Vladimir Matyushenko, and Jorge Rivera.

Amateur MMA fighter chokes Manila traffic enforcer

Road rage on a whole new level.

    Baroni breaks my heart, man. Always. Such an honest, decent guy.

    • Mr.Roadblock says:

      He’s been a good friend of mine for years. One of the all time great dudes. He’d be a great color commentator if someone gave him the shot. He’d also be a great coach. He fights in an all out brawling style because he likes to, but he understands every aspect of the game.

      • BuddyRowe says:

        He understands every aspect of the game except cardio training.

      • He keeps fighting like that and he’s gonna end up having a lousy quality of life post fighting. Its the truth. As is, honestly, he shouldn’t be fighting right now. He’s just not good enough to compete with these guys.
