Mark Coleman Wants Randy Couture?
In a recent phone interview from Japan, former UFC and PRIDE grand Prix Champion Mark Coleman was asked who he would want to face next in MMA, and his answer eventually was Randy Couture.

Stephan Bonnar Featured In New MMA Reality Series
Raw Vegas TV, an internet-only channel about all things Las Vegas, announced today the premiere of a new reality series following UFC fighter Stephan Bonnar as he prepares for UFC 77. The show can be seen on demand and online.

Randy Couture on Conan O Brien
The whole premise is that some news company made up a story about Conan that he said wasn't true. He told the story in a way that would have been more interesting and it's pretty funny.

UFC light heavyweight Matt Hamill, who lost a controversial split decision to Michael Bisping last month at UFC 75 (and subsequently was promised an immediate rematch), is “in shock” after learning that Bisping will first fight Rashad Evans at UFC 78.

PRIDE Tokyo Office Closed, All Workers Fired
The section of Yahoo's Japanese website dedicated to wrestling/MMA coverage is reporting that the PRIDE FC Worldwide offices in Japan were closed earlier today (last night Japan time) and all employees were fired.

This sounds like it officially marks the true end of PRIDE, but also shows that the whole PRIDE situation, anyway you look at it, really is that bad.
Palmdale's McWilliams Trades Prison For MMA Cage
In the violent, ultra-competitive world of Mixed Martial Arts, training is only part of the equation. The bottom line, though, is that you are either a natural-born fighter, or you're not.
