Ross "The Boss" Mason In Critical Condition
(cagewarriors.com)
For those of you who don't know him, Ross is a British MMA fighter who has fought at Cage Rage many times, most recently against Scott Jansen and before that against Ross Pointin. "Contrary to local radio news reports this morning which stated that Ross “The Boss” Mason had died after receiving stab wounds outside a Birmingham Nightclub; we can now announce that these reports were incorrect. However we are able to confirm that Ross Mason was found in the early hours of this morning with serve head injuries and had initially died as he was taken to Alexandra Hospital in Redditch. However he was resuscitated at the Hospital and is presently in a critical condition in the ICU Unit. Earlier today Marc Goddard was taken into an office at the Liverpool Olympia and was informed of Ross' death, due to these incorrect media reports. Goddard and his Management then decided he would not fight later tonight at Cage Gladiators, because he wanted to be with Ross' family as they are close personal friends. Goddard was then taken back to Birmingham only to be told that Ross had not died but was in a "critical state" on a life support machine. This has only added to Marc's turmoil and it would be an understatement to say that his mind was not connected with fighting at this time. Everybody at Warrior Promotions and Cage Warriors are deeply saddened by this incident and our thoughts are with Ross, his family and friends during this dreadful ordeal. We also hope he will be able to pull through this and make a full recovery."

LUDWIG EXACTS PAYBACK AT STRIKEFORCE IN DENVER (+ Results)
(mmaweekly.com)
BROOMFIELD, Colo. – It’s been nearly three years, but Duane “Bang” Ludwig was finally able to exact a little payback on Ultimate Fighter alumnus Sam Morgan. It was short, but surely sweet for Ludwig as he won in the main event of Strikeforce’s first foray over the Rocky Mountains. The action was fast and furious from the opening bell, but as Ludwig and Morgan traded blows, it was Ludwig that found his range. He landed a thundering left hook to Morgan’s body and followed with a crushing right hand that put him on the mat. Ludwig soon followed, unleashing a measured barrage of strikes that had Morgan tapping out from the punishment. “He came and did his job last time and I didn’t. I wasn’t up for the fight and he was,” said Ludwig of their first meeting, also in Denver. A measured technician, Ludwig says it was his training partners that lead him to such a furious victory. “Sometimes I just sit back and look for the shot, my partners keep telling me to just let it go and I finally did.”

ALMEIDA OUT; DAN MILLER WILL FACE MATT HORWICH
(mmaweekly.com)
An undisclosed injury has forced Brazilian Jiu-jitsu ace Ricardo Almeida out of his scheduled fight at UFC 90 in Chicago. Stepping in to replace him is highly touted middleweight prospect Dan Miller, who will now face Matt Horwich on Oct. 25. The fight has been verbally agreed to by both fighters and should be signed shortly according to sources close to the situation, as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com Miller was signed to the UFC recently after a stint in the International Fight League that saw him crowned the last-ever middleweight champion for the now defunct promotion. Ironically enough his opponent, Matt Horwich, was the first ever IFL middleweight champion, but lost the belt during his first title defense a few months later. Miller made an impressive debut in the Octagon by submitting veteran fighter Rob Kimmons by rear naked choke in the first round of their match-up at the UFC Fight Night event in mid-September.

Shogun: ''Coleman Is Two-Faced''
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua has a score to settle when he gets his long-awaited rematch with Mark Coleman at UFC 93. In a recent interview with Fighters Only, Shogun stated that he is back to full fitness and ready for the fight, which he has wanted ever since their PRIDE showdown was halted when Shogun broke his arm during a fall to the mat. “I've wanted to fight Coleman for a long time, but he kept running away from me,” the light-heavyweight said. He then revealed that there is a personal element to the fight, which stems from their previous encounter. “Mark Coleman is two-faced. When I broke my arm whilst falling during our previous fight, he was very nice to my face.

Affliction admits it "would be dumb" to go head to head with UFC
(mmajunkie.com)
The recent announcement by the UFC of a Jan. 17 event in Dublin, Ireland, could be construed as the latest salvo in a battle to crush upstart promoters Affliction. The UFC began its counter-programming assault on Affliction from the very start, airing "UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin" live on Spike TV the same night as Affliction's debut pay-per-view, "Banned." Affliction had originally suggested it would hold its rescheduled second event, "Day of Reckoning," in Anaheim, Calif., on that same date. But Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio recently suggested to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Jan. 17 may now be off the table. "[The UFC's announcement] didn't force us (to change dates), but it definitely -- it would be dumb for us to go head to head with them," Atencio said. "Personally I think it's dumb for both of us. Whether it's half or a quarter of the people, they're going to go for one side or the next. The chances of people getting both are going to be slim and none."

EliteXC Weigh-In Results: Gina (Barely) Makes Weight

And when I say barely, it means literally. The EliteXC weigh-ins are currently underway, and the big question was whether Gina Carano would make weight. It took 3 tries, taking off all her clothing, and a towel, but she finally got down to the limit of 141 pounds.

Marcus Davis is going to float and sting against Paul Kelly at UFC 89
(mmamania.com)
“I think his plan will be to throw big thumping punches to get me to clinch with him, I’m just not gonna do it…. I’ve got the longer reach, I’m an inch taller, I’m gonna smash him with jabs, he’s gonna reach for me, I’m gonna move. Every time he drops his head I’m gonna smash him with an uppercut and every time he straightens up I’m gonna smash him with punches. He’s gonna be chasing me around the ring, every time he swings I won’t be there. I can not only hit hard coming forward, I can hit hard on the slide. A lot of people have a tough time punching hard on the move, but that’s all I’ve been working on in this camp. I’ve just been working on throwing bombs while on the move. It’s gonna be a frustrating fight for him, I’m gonna catch every time he reaches, every time he gets desperate, he’ll be chasing as I lead the fight and that’s when I’ll finish it.”

ALL ON THE LINE, SHIELDS DEFENDING ELITEXC BELT
(mmaweekly.com)
Jake Shields is perhaps the most underrated fighter in the world. He is the No. 5 ranked welterweight, according to the MMAWeekly.com World MMA Rankings. He has impressive victories over Carlos Condit, Yushin Okami, and Renato Verissimo. He is the current EliteXC welterweight champion and will defend his belt on Saturday night against Paul Daley. Shields was heavily rumored to take on top middleweight Matt Lindland in the October Affliction show. Unfortunately, the Affliction show was postponed to January and left Shields an opportunity to defend his title on EliteXC's Saturday Night Fights. “Initially I was a little disappointed for a couple days because I had my mind set on that Lindland fight,” he explained recently on MMAWeekly Radio. “In retrospect, I'm certainly glad this is what I did. After a couple days, I realized fighting on CBS is obviously a huge opportunity to get my name out there and the fact that the Affliction card got postponed made me really happy that I went with this fight.” EliteXC is in need of an impressive card and high ratings in order to keep their company on a progressive path. They have really beefed up their card pitting Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock against each other, which is sure to garner some interest. They are also putting popular stars Gina Carano and Andrei Arlovski on the card, as well as their welterweight champion. Shields believes that this card is fantastic and would definitely watch it, even if he weren't on the card. “This is the best card I ever fought on, I think. I would definitely be happy to watch these fights as a fan. I like every fight on the card myself. I'm excited to be a part of this.”

TAYLOR DEFEATS FICKETT AT TOTAL COMBAT
(mmaweekly.com)
Thursday night, Sycuan Ringside Promotions in association with Total Combat Entertainment presented Total Combat "Notorious" from the Sycuan Resort & Casino near downtown San Diego, Calif. The Utlimate Fighter season 7 finalist Jesse Taylor and Drew Fickett squared off in the main event in front of a sell-out crowd of 2,800. From the start, Taylor had Fickett on his heels which would lead to a quick take down. Once on the ground, Taylor landed heavy shots to Fickett’s head, one of which opened a two-inch gash on his forehead just above his right eye. Taylor would continue to land shots while Fickett tried to block the assault. The referee stopped the barrage at the 1:42 mark of the first round awarding Taylor the victory via TKO. In the co-main event, Ian McCall of Laguna Nigel, Calif. won a unanimous decision against San Diego-native Kevin Dunsmoor in a three round bantamweight bout.

STRIKEFORCE: BUSINESS AS USUAL FOR SPRATT
(mmaweekly.com)
“The Secret Weapon” Pete Spratt isn’t one to try to be sneaky with his game plan heading into fights. As he puts it, “My game plan is always the same, just as their game plan is always the same: they’re going to try to take me down, and I’m going to try to strike.” That is the creed of the former Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran who will be making his first appearance in the Strikeforce promotion this Friday night against Donnie Liles on the outskirts of Denver in Broomfield, Colo. “It’s nothing new going into this fight,” he continued. “For me it’s all the same fight every time. Whether they’re young or old, veteran or not, it’s the same fight – it doesn’t matter who it is.” Indeed, it’s business as usual for Spratt, and that’s why he remains a fan favorite, even when heading into the hometown of his opponent. “I’ve got quite a fan base in the Denver area,” stated Spratt. “It’s been a while since I fought out here, so I’m excited about that.”

Spike TV has a press release that says the UFC's December 10th event "Fight for the Troops" will not be held on Fort Bragg: Spike TV will telecast "UFC Fight For The Troops" live from the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC on Wednesday, December 10 from 9:00 PM – Midnight, ET.

Goulet Vs Swick Is Official
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Jonathan Goulet has signed a bout agreement to face Mike Swick at UFC Fights for the Troops on December 10th, Fighters Only can exclusively reveal. Speaking to a Fighters Only staff writer earlier this week, Goulet said he had “only just signed the contract”. “He’s a good fighter, a quick fighter, he is versatile,” he said. “All my friends are trying to guillotine me [laughs]. They are trying to help me because of The Swick-otine.” Swick finished Steve Vigneault and Joe Riggs in two minutes each via a guillotine choke he jokingly named the Swick-otine.
