A little bit of calm reassurance from the UFC’s Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner: The UFC show on Aug. 17 at the TD Garden in Boston is happening, according to UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner. An article in the Boston Herald on Tuesday indicated the event was in jeopardy. “The show [...]
No charges will be laid as a result of a fight in the stands between two men during the UFC 161 event at MTS Centre on Saturday night, police said Monday. One man involved reportedly laid unconscious in the pool of his own blood for about 15 minutes. He was taken to hospital for treatment and was released, police said. Police said they did interview another man involved in the fight. “It’s just one of those things — it just sounds like two guys fighting at UFC,” said Winnipeg police spokesman Const. Eric Hofley. "There were no other incidents related to the UFC event that night."I'm glad Constable Hofley was around to clear things up. At first I thought the article was just referring to the bloodbath that was Sam Stout vs. James Krause, but upon hearing that it was just one of those things where guys fight at UFC, I can rest assured knowing the MTS Centre staff and security did everything within their power to ensure a quick and expedient rescue for the poor bastard who was stewing in his own blood. If we are to take one positive thing away from this story, however, it's that Winnipeg has apparently yet to be affected by the smartphone trend currently turning American youth into an army of mechanized dullards. For if they were technologically up to speed, we would have surely seen half a dozen videos of the fight in question with the caption LOLBATH AT WINNY, #DURP #PRAY4WEEZY uploaded by now. -J. Jones
After a two-month hiatus, Bellator returns this Wednesday night to kick off their 2013 Summer Series tournaments. Unlike past summers that focused on only one weight class, this season brings us two abbreviated four-man brackets in the heavyweight and light-heavyweight divisions. All of the light-heavy entrants are returning from the recent Season 8 tourney, though [...]
War Machine shocked the world with another truthbomb last week, declaring Cat Zingano’s knee injury to be fake and just an excuse for the UFC to switch TUF coaches to the more marketable Ronda Rousey vs Miesha Tate match up. Since everything The Artist Formerly Known As Jon Koppenhaver says is always right, I have [...]

(Not) Coming to America: Massachusetts State Law Threatening to Derail ‘UFC on FOX Sports 1:1′ [UPDATED]
“This law has been in existence since we legalized mixed martial arts in the commonwealth of Massachusetts,” said Terrell Harris, spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety, which regulates prize fighting. “It’s been brought to the attention of the UFC more than a few times since we legalized the fighting here. But they’ve chosen basically to ignore the law and hope that they could skirt it somehow,” Harris said. When they bring in fighters that are not American citizens, there are exceptions that allow them to obtain a Social Security number,” Harris said. “The Social Security Administration will issue a temporary work visa but it’s up to them to do their due diligence...the law is the law. The law doesn't allow us to make exceptions.""Indeed it does not." - Chad Johnson. "Occasionally it does." - Lindsay Lohan
Masato Toys is back with episode 5 of his great “Sonnen’s War” comic. To catch you up, a mysterious force is using mind control to take over the UFC and only Nick Diaz and his UltimateFriends can uncover the mystery behind it and save the day. Shooped to the hilt and packed with more hammy [...]
UFC 2UFC 2 was the first and only 16-man tournament run by the UFC. The first round of the tournament — save for Royce Gracie’s fight (of course)—didn’t air on the PPV and aren’t on the DVD either. These “lost fights” from UFC 2 have quite a few interesting characters such as the enigmatic Pencak Silat master Alberto Cerro Leon and the chubby, sweatpants-clad Robert Lucarelli. Look at the complete bracket and see how many names you recognize. Most of these guys from the UFC 2 dark matches had no chance in the tournament, save for a man named Freek (or Frank) Hamaker. We’re going to stick with Freek because it rhymes with Reek. A fighter like Hamaker was a rarity in the early days. He wasn’t a hapless striker fated to be embarrassed. He was a sambo practitioner who trained under legendary European grappler Chris Dolman. Hamaker’s first (and only) fight was at UFC 2 against the mysterious San Soo Kung Fu man Thaddeus Luster. The fight went like the typical early UFC fight. The guy with grappling immediately took down the guy without grappling and won shortly afterwards. Hamaker withdrew from the tournament after defeating Luster and disappeared to the pornography theater from whence he came.
So get this: some pencil pusher in Massachusetts’s Department of Public Safety is threatening to shut down the UFC’s big August 17th show in Boston over an obtuse paperwork issue. State red tape could knock out a blockbuster bareknuckle fight card slated for Boston Garden later this summer as government officials are refusing the UFC’s [...]
Absurd Betting Line of the Day: King Mo is a 15-1 Favorite Against Seth Petruzelli, Who Will Probably Beat Him
Genki Sudo and his WORLD ORDER band have slo-mo robot walked their way over to America for a new music video entitled IMPERIALISM (why do Japanese use SO MANY CAPS???). For those of you thinking their pop n lock thing has gotten a bit stale after several other music videos, this one will prove you [...]

Last week it was revealed that omnipresent Brazilian sponsor Pretorian had been given the boot by the UFC. If there was any backlash, it all happened on Brazilian websites in languages I don’t read, so I didn’t see anything about it. Now Dana White gives us a little info on what initiated the blacklisting: I [...]
UFC 161 was a general disappointment. Not only were the fights a mixed bag of meh, but very few ranking developments occurred. Sure, you’ve got James Krause emerging as an interesting addition to the lightweight division, but other than that? Alexis Davis isn’t anywhere near challenging for the women’s title. Shawn Jordan isn’t going anywhere [...]

‘UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman’ Video Promo — If You Think Anderson Is Going to Lose, You’re in Good Company
After UFC 161, one of the main topics of conversation was Roy Nelson. Where he stood after the loss, what he wanted to do, and whether the UFC was interested at all in keeping him. For his part, Dana White insists that the promotion isn’t pushing him out the door: “I want Roy Nelson in [...]
The Unsupportable Opinion: Steve Mazzagatti’s Non-Stoppage of Burkman vs. Fitch Wasn’t the Travesty Everyone is Making it Out to Be
I posted up Josh Burkman’s rousing finish of Jon Fitch from WSOF3 this Saturday as the feel good finish of the day, but Dana White saw it as something more sinister: a potentially deadly fuck up by Steve Mazzagatti, par for the course when it came to that referee and by extension the Nevada commission [...]
