Body of UFC Fighter Gilbert Aldana recovered in Arizona
At long last closure for his family, 5 months after the terrible boating accident which claimed his life in March this year!
Interesting to see how much the WEC fighters make since it's owned by the UFC and the UFC doesn't pay fighters to well.
Drew McFedries Possibly Off UFC 77
There is staph going around at the Miletich school in Bettendorf, IA. Among those infected are UFC fighters Tim Sylvia, Drew McFedries and Spencer Fisher. Fisher has already had to pull out of his 9/19 Spike TV main event match with Din Thomas. UFC has just confirmed Kenny Florian as the replacement. McFedries is scheduled against Marvin Eastman on the 10/20 PPV show in Cincinnati and he's up in the air. Man, this thing might take down everyone there. Hopefully it won't get to Matt Hughes. I know there are a few people who won't complain about Sylvia getting it though.

The cold war: Fedor weighs his options
From Sherdog on Fedors' s choices. I think the UFC should give on the sambo ,and even sign one or two red devil fighter's. However, his manager trying to strong arm the UFC into co-promotion is ridiculous IMO.
Rumor: Okami vs Macdonald?
This should be a good match up. I think I'll take Okami if this fight happens. Much stronger.
CALIFORNIA STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION GRANTS CONTINUANCE FOR SHERK
NV August 6, 2007 – At a hearing in Los Angeles today, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) granted a continuance for UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk’s appeal of his positive test for the banned substance “Nandrolone” after his July 7th win over Hermes Franca at UFC 73 in Sacramento. Sherk’s attorney Howard L. Jacobs requested the continuance to allow time to acquire documentation from the laboratory where the drug tests were conducted. Hermes Franca, who tested positive for “Drostanolone” after his July 7 bout with Sherk, was also present at today’s hearing. Franca admitted to taking the substance and the CSAC suspended him for one year beginning July 7 and fined him $2,500. It is expected that Sherk’s continued appeal will take place at the CSAC’s next meeting in October.
Special report: Steroids, street drugs a problem in MMA, too
On the Tuesday before UFC 73, I was on the phone with a friend who works with a top mixed martial arts champion. The person understands the pro wrestling business well. I asked them if MMA has a similar drug culture to professional wrestling.
Lister trains with Mirko
CroCop (and Lister) is making all the right moves after suffering the devastating loss to Gabriel Gonzaga. And really, that's always been CroCop's style. He's suffered a few notable losses that wound up serving as diagnostics about his in-ring ability. Now that he understands how important the cage, wrestling, and defensive ground work can be, he's doing everything in his power to bring his skills up to speed. Cheick Kongo's going to have his work cut out for him. IMO it's great for both of them. I think Mirko needs a bit more help with feeling out the cage, and lister can use some striking help. Ricco is still there, as are vyel, bonjasky and sergi. I'm getting so excited for the upcoming fight with kongo, Mirko seems really dedicated to winning, and going after that belt.
Riggs vs. Miller for Shot at WEC TITLE
Should be a pretty interesting fight. One fight ago, Riggs was told, you lose you are done. Well he won obviously.
UFC RoundUp. Newss
Very interesting if you read the round up as of august 5th. I'll point out the things I have thoughts on. Evan Tanner will not be facing Marvin Eastman, Tanner not even under contract with the UFC as of now. I want to see Eastman vs Mcfedries anyway. UFC could possibly hold a event in North Carolina Silva vs Chuck could still be on for december but I doubt it. UFC wants to hold an event in Chicago. wont happen untill atleast early '08 Mark Coleman is trying to make a return to the UFC. interesting Ouch Gomi going to stay in Japan and fight and not sign with the ufc. Corey Hill supposly going to debut at 78 with a bunch of 155ers
