Coming Soon: The First MMA Minor League System
Every major pro sport has feeder systems-minor league baseball, NBDL, AHL, NCAA Football. Soon, MMA will have PMMAL. In an effort to help develop the next generation of MMA stars while providing investors a chance to own their own professional sports franchise, Englebrecht announced Wednesday the launch of the Professional Mixed Martial Arts League (PMMAL). Set to begin play in early 2010, the PMMAL (www.pmmal.com) will award charter ownerships to teams in eight specific areas including six Southern California counties and Las Vegas.

DREAM signs big prospect !!
French fighter Karl Amoussou has signed a four fight deal to fight for the Japanese organization DREAM. Details about the fighter’s debut are unknown at this point, however sources close to the fighter indicated that an announcement about an upcoming fight should be coming very soon. Amoussou, who is looked upon as one of Europe’s biggest prospects, recently signed an exclusive management contract with M-1Global, joining Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi, and Fedor Emelianenko, the man widely recognized as the top heavyweight in the world. Amoussou brings an 11 – 2 – 1 professional record to DREAM. Although known mostly for his fierce striking, 7 of thePsycho’s 11 victories have come via submission. Very exciting prospect, pure violence.

UFC 104's Anthony Johnson: "As soon as I didn't make weight, my life changed"
UFC welterweight Anthony Johnson should have left Los Angeles $60,000 richer. After earning a devastating 43-second TKO win over Yoshiyuki Yoshida on the main card of this past Saturday's UFC 104 event in Los Angeles, Johnson appeared to be a lock for the evening's "Knockout of the Night" award and a $60,000 bonus. But Johnson missed weight the day before, and UFC president Dana White declared "Rumble" ineligible for the award. Johnson said the penalty was a life-changing moment.

UFC 104 Fighter Payouts
The CSAC today announced the disclosed fighter payouts from UFC 104. The total disclosed payouts was $922,000 with the biggest share-$200,000-going to Lyoto Machida. Additionally, if the rumors of Anthony Johnson getting a 20% fine for missing weight are indeed true, that means he loses $6,000 total, which goes to Yoshiyuki Yoshida.

UFC 104 Medical Suspensions
The CSAC has issued the medical suspensions from UFC 104, and it's sure to add fuel to some fires. While most fighters got 30-60 day suspensions except for Pat Barry getting 180 days without doctor's clearance (wrist), the big story was UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida getting 60 days and 60 days no contact for a cut...but Mauricio Rua was not suspended.

Dear Haters: Watch UFC 104 Without Audio And You Might See A Different Fight
Yours truly, Lyoto Machida. That's one of the things he said in a Sherdog.com interview: "The American commentators were pretty much biased. If you see the fight without audio, you will probably see a different fight." In other words, he says that Mike Goldberg & Joe Rogan basically were too pro-Rua, among other things.

UFC 104 Prelims On Spike: 1.4 Million Viewers
Spike TV's broadcast of two preliminary card bouts from this past Saturday's "UFC 104: Machida vs. Shogun" card drew 1.4 million viewers according to a report issued today by the cable television network. That's about the same as the viewership for when Spike aired 2 prelims live prior to UFC 103. It also ranked #2 in the target 18-34 men & 18-49 men demos in the timeslot behind only NCAA Football on ESPN. But there's no guarantee UFC will do this again.

Takanori Gomi Could KO BJ Penn-If Dana White Wasn't So Hard To Deal With
Former PRIDE Lightweight Champion Takanori Gomi recently told a Japanese website that he wants to fight current UFC Lightweight Champion BJ Penn. But preferably not in UFC. The reason? As he says, "Mr. Dana White is a great manager and I respect him but is a person hard to deal with."

Josh Barnett receives second extension for CSAC steroid appeal
Affliction Grim Reaper and former PRIDE star Josh Barnett has applied for — and received — a second extension for his appeal directed towards the ruling of the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) after he was popped for steroids in a random drug test prior to his August 1 bout against Fedor Emelianenko, according to Sherdog.com. “The Babyface Assassin” returned a positive “B” sample on July 31, all but confirming his initial test result that began a downward spiral for his employer and fellow fighters. Barnett’s positive test led to Affliction MMA’s house of cards to come crashing down, calling it quits as a fight promoter and returning to the UFC as a corporate sponsor with its clothing brand. Several intriguing fights were scrapped as a result, forcing fighters to search for work elsewhere … Barnett included. The former UFC Heavyweight champion issued a press release last month, calling into question the integrity of those results alleged by the CSAC — who does have a fairly sordid history dating back to the Sean Sherk scandal and beyond. From his official press release: Mr. Barnett was shocked at these allegations and was extremely disappointed to learn that Affliction had made the hasty decision to cancel the August 1st event in its entirety. Mr. Barnett vehemently denies intentionally ingesting any banned substances in preparation for the August 1st fight and he is looking forward to presenting his case to the California State Athletic Commission. Barnett is appealing this most recent steroid finding with the CSAC but was likely counting on his second “B” sample to help dispute the initial positive result. In light of this new development, Barnett will not be eligible to reapply for a license to fight in the United States for at least a year, forcing him to remain exiled in Japan until then. With a FieLDS Dynamite!! card looming and a successful wrestling career; however, it may not be too difficult to find work.

For Kimbo Slice, It's All About the Fight
Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson was famous before signing on for the Spike TV reality show “The Ultimate Fighter.” He headlined fight cards on CBS and was paid high-end money for a mixed martial arts athlete. He had little to gain from going on TUF outside of respect and an opportunity to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. “It was a good experience,” Kimbo told TapouT Radio about his reality television experience. “It was an amazing sacrifice for me.” With the addition of Kimbo, The Ultimate Fighter 10 has seen record ratings. During his bout with Roy Nelson on episode three of this season 6.1 million viewers tuned in to see Nelson defeat Ferguson by TKO in the second round. Kimbo attributes his popularity to fans being able to relate to him.

Stann vs. Wallace, Hallman vs. Howard, Bocek vs. Veach all official for TUF 10 Finale
As "The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights" continues on toward the final two competitors, the season's live finale is beginning to take shape. The UFC today announced three previously reported contests for the preliminary card, and Brian Stann vs. Rodney Wallace, Dennis Hallman vs. John Howard and Mark Bocek vs. Matt Veach are all now official for The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale. The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale is scheduled for Dec. 5 at The Palms Casino & Resort in Las Vegas. Stann (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) looks to build on a unanimous-decision win over Steve Cantwell at UFC Fight Night 19 in September. The win gave Stann a 2-1 win in his trilogy with Cantwell and gave "All American" his first win in the UFC.

Quinton Jackson "Ashamed" Of "A******s"
And of course he commits potential career suicide in the process because said bad words were directed towards UFC. He was voicing his opinion of the events of UFC 104, in particular the main event and the judges. He also says he won't return until UFC hires new, more competent judges. Which means never because UFC doesn't choose judges-the state athletic commissions or organizations overseeing MMA do.
