Brock Lesnar Talks About Safety in MMA
(mndaily.com)
"Just like football, basketball or hockey, the risk of getting injured in competition is there. But everybody that gets in the octagon is very well-trained. Also, in this sport, if I feel like my arm's going to get snapped, I can tap out before I get injured. In other sports, I don't have that option. If a linebacker's coming across and I'm carrying the ball, I don't have the opportunity to stop. I've been hurt more as a pro wrestler and as an amateur wrestler than I have in this. I was hurt more as a pro wrestler than anything else, because I worked 300 nights a year and they didn't care if I was hurt or not."

Fighter Salaries: Addressing The Problems
(mmapayout.com)
As a follow-up to Fighter Salaries: The Problems With Revenue Linking, in the coming days I will be examining potential suggestions that could help to improve the hotly contested MMA issue that is fighter pay. For the sake of convenience - and also because they are the "800 lbs. gorilla in the room" - most of this discussion will focus on the UFC. While I certainly do not believe that the UFC and MMA are interchangeable, the sport's biggest organization is almost always at the forefront of every debate regarding the sport and the industry.

Georges St. Pierre Nominated for an ESPY (Vote!!)
(promo.espn.go.com)
Georges St. Pierre has been nominated for an ESPY in the "best fighter" category. You can vote , but you have to sign up. He is up against four boxers, including Floyd Mayweather, Joe Calzaghe, Kelly Pavlik, and Holly Holm. Last year, Randy Couture and Quinton Jackson were both nominated, but came up short. This year the boxing vote will likely be split, which gives Georges a good chance of winning if MMA fans sign up and vote for him. In some ways he seems like a token Mixed Martial Arts nomination, but I think he's a good one. Nobody else besides Anderson Silva has had a better summer to summer period since the last awards in the MMA world. WAR MMA!! we gotta stick up for our fighters! VOTE!!!
