Kimbo Slice Has Low Hurdle to Clear for Big Reward on The Ultimate Fighter 10
It's a cruel hard world out there and the reality is that Kimbo Slice is good for business. Dana White has shrewdly put himself in a no lose position by booking Kimbo on The Ultimate Fighter. At a minimum he will get blockbuster ratings for the early episodes, the longer they can keep him from being exposed, the better. Anyone want to bet that Kimbo won't fight until the third or fourth episode of the show? And if Kimbo manages to score a win, especially a convincing KTFO win, the Kimbo hype train will begin to choo choo down the tracks.

Evans-Jackson Postponed Until Early 2010
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s big break has broken up a headlining bout against Rashad Evans at UFC 107. Jackson and Evans, rival coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter 10” debuting Sept. 16 on Spike TV, will no longer face off in a culminating bout on Dec. 12 in Memphis, Tenn., where Jackson hails from. Evans was notified Saturday that his headlining light heavyweight bout with Jackson will be postponed until early 2010, as Jackson begins shooting a lead role in the feature film remake of “The A-Team” in Vancouver, British Columbia. The 31-year-old Jackson will reprise the role of “B.A. Baracus,” made famous by iconic personality Mr. T in the 1980s. Numerous outlets, including U.K-based “The Sun,” have reported on the jeopardized bout for the last few weeks, and UFC President Dana White even voiced his disdain for Jackson’s moonlighting aspirations at UFC 102 in late August.

No Plea Deal For Driver Accused Of Killing Charles "Mask" Lewis
The Orange County Register has an update on the case against Jeffrey David Kirby, the man accused of killing Tapout’s Charles “Mask” Lewis in a drunk-driving accident this past spring. Late last week the judge refused to give Kirby a reduced sentence in exchange for pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter. Instead, prosecutors are seeking an 18-year sentence for Kirby, who has two prior convictions for drunk driving and had a .13 blood/alcohol level hours after the crash that killed Mask.

A Champion's Clause Never Bound Alistair Overeem to Defend Title
In an interesting interview by MiddleEasy.com in which they actually asked Overeem who would win in a fight between the 1993 version of Wesley Snipes and the 1986 version of Sylvester Stallone (Seriously? Rambo/Rocky wins), it was revealed that Strikeforce didn't bind Overeem to a champion's clause following his win over Paul Buentello for the championship belt.

Dan Stupp Defends Sean Salmon's Admission
Salmon quit, plain and simple. Self-preservation and financial well-being trumped his competitive drive. But he didn’t "throw a fight" as so many have alleged. At any MMA event, especially amateur and small regional shows, you’ll see at least a fighter or two who simply breaks mentally. He’ll stop fighting off a submission attempt, will quit fighting and cover up, or will simply tap-out. Like Salmon, they just don’t have the heart to continue that night

One Year Later, Evan Tanner's Unforgettable Life, Legacy Remembered
The people who knew him still think of him regularly. How can they not? He moved them closer to life's truths than anyone else. He pulled them in, taught them lessons, then disappeared. He made them feel alive. He challenged them to think deeper, look further, rise above. He broke their hearts, then showed them what true redemption was all about. They remember him because one year later, the life of Evan Tanner still echoes.

Maynard's got the plan to beat Huerta
"As the lightweight division awaits the next title defense by champion B.J. Penn in December, the list of contenders is constantly growing. The choice for the next top 155-pound contender could be crowned on Sept. 16 when Gray Maynard goes for his sixth win in a row when he faces Roger Huerta at UFC Fight Night 19 in Oklahoma. Maynard’s string of wins includes victories over Frankie Edgar, Jim Miller, and Rich Clementi. He's hoping to tack Huerta onto the list in what could be the budding actor’s final fight with the UFC. It's no secret that Huerta has expressed his desire to venture onto the silver screen and the fight against Maynard is the last on his current fight contract." I like Maynard a lot. This sound be a good fight.

Arona: 'I Can Beat Anyone,' Machida Included
"More than two years have passed since Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou knocked out Ricardo Arona at the final Pride Fighting Championships event in Japan. Viewed by most as one of the top light heavyweight fighters in the world in 2005 and 2006, Arona disappeared from the mixed martial arts scene in wake of Pride’s demise. “The Brazilian Tiger” -- who built his reputation, in part, on the back of a 1999 victory over Jeff Monson in the absolute final of the Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championships -- will return to MMA this Saturday when he meets UFC veteran Marvin Eastman in the Bitetti Combat Nordeste 4 main event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It will also mark the first time Arona competes inside a cage."

UFC 105: Terry Etim vs. Shannon Gugerty possible for Nov. 14
Unheralded but tough lightweights Terry Etim (13-2) and Shannon Gugerty (12-3) are penciled in to throw leather in a 155-pound match up at UFC 105 from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on Nov. 14, according to Fighter’s Only magazine. Etim has looked sharp in his three most recent performances inside the Octagon, submitting Justin Buchholz with a brabo choke at UFC 99: “The Comeback,” knocking Brian Cobb senseless with a head kick at UFC 95: “Sanchez vs. Stevenson” and outpointing Sam Stout on all three judges scorecards at UFC 89: “Bisping vs. Leben.”

Frank Mir to add more strength to go with his technique
“In the fight with Brock, I really felt there was a huge difference in strength and power. Being 245, I just don’t think I’ll ever be able to compete with him at that weight…. One area of my game I’m really lacking at is physical power. Just training, lifting heavy weights, being explosive, being a powerful athlete…. I’m going to go back to drawing board, I’m going to win two, three fights in a row and get a rematch against him. And I don’t have to sit here and complain about it, I’ll get an opportunity to get locked in a cage with him and show him what I felt about [his post-fight antics].”
