Humbled Kimbo Slice Hungry to Prove He's No Fraud In The Octagon
(mma.fanhouse.com)
When EliteXC was in the MMA business, its president, Gary Shaw, had no qualms calling Kimbo Slice the company's "franchise player," comparing his aura to that of Mike Tyson and anointing him as an MMA great. Meanwhile, on the other side of promoter hyperbole, UFC President Dana White would rip EliteXC for its "freakshow" promotion of Slice, and throw an occasional jab at the man himself, saying at one point, "Kimbo Slice would get murdered in the UFC." But when EliteXC closed up shop and Slice needed a new place to ply his trade, people started asking White if Kimbo could possibly find a home in the octagon. White responded that the only way for Slice to join the UFC was by going on The Ultimate Fighter. Slice called his bluff, and as a result, the UFC and broadcast partner Spike TV are privately expecting the largest ratings in the show's history.

Royce Gracie Not Fighting...For Now
(mmaweekly.com)
Even when you're away from fighting, you're never really away. Such seems to be the recent case with Royce Gracie: He doesn't need any of the typical motivators for fighting, he seems comfortable being out of the MMA spotlight, but he doesn't seem to have the urge to fight. But if UFC 100 and the Fan Expo was any indication, fans still want to see the original UFC legend back in action at 42. Not now, he says, but of course never say never.

Taylor has won six straight fights since being released from the UFC and is looking for #7. Despite the solid 11-3 record Taylor is best known for his antics after The Ultimate Fighter finished taping when he bashed in a window of a limo and was booted from the competition despite being in the Finals. Yoon has lost his last two fights after winning five straight. He holds a victory over Melvin Manhoef and lost a decision to Rampage Jackson in 2006.

Winner of Kampmann-Swick to face St. Pierre
(mmaweekly.com)
Wednesday, July 15, 2009 - by Ken Pishna - MMAWeekly.com It has been widely rumored and Joe Rogan mentioned it during the UFC 100 broadcast, but the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Wednesday made it official, the fight between Mike Swick and Martin Kampmann will determine the next challenger to UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre. "Wherever we go, fans know UFC delivers great fights,” UFC president Dana White said. "Mike Swick vs. Martin Kampmann could be fight of the night at UFC 103 because the winner takes on Georges St. Pierre for the welterweight title.” After suffering an injury to his groin at UFC 100, St. Pierre will be taking some time off to heal up, but has at least narrowed his next opponent down to the winner of the bout on Sept. 19 in Dallas. "I want to face the best guy," the champ commented after his victory over Thiago Alves. "Right now, I'm in really bad pain. I'm going to take a step back and take a look at it and we'll talk about it, and in a couple of weeks we'll see." He should have plenty of time to rehab his injury and get prepared for his next challenge. Swick vs. Kampmann is still two months away and no date has been revealed for St. Pierre's return bout against the winner.

Randy Couture is making the media rounds in Portland to promote his August 29 UFC 102 fight with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and in an interesting interview with On Portland, he indicated a desire to move back down from heavyweight to light heavyweight -- at least if it gave him a chance at the light heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida.

Mainstream Media Missing Out on a Golden Opportunity
(bloodyelbow.com)
UFC 100 provided the mainstream media and other writers with a lot of fuel to bash the sport we so dearly enjoy every weekend. Specifically, Brock Lesnar's post-fight antics have garnered interest in a negative way from many sports outlets that simply don't understand the sport. I'm also inclined to believe their business doesn't understand that MMA is going to continue to grow, and those outlets aren't appealing to more readers by bashing it.

BONES JONES NOT HAPPY ABOUT UFC 100 STAND-UP
(mmaweekly.com)
Jon “Bones” Jones certainly looked relaxed in the Octagon as he faced “Irish” Jake O’Brien at UFC 100, shuffling around the action like hero Muhammed Ali. He stayed true to his unpredictable style, too, catching wrestler/boxer O’Brien off guard with a fake takedown attempt that turned into a spinning elbow, setting the fight’s end in motion.
