New Year’s Mixed Martial Arts Resolutions (Story from Yahoo! Sports)
(mmajunkie.com)
As the year ends with a bang in mixed martial arts, it’s time to start thinking to 2008. To help things along, I have a few resolutions to share for the big names in the business. Dana White: There is no fight fans want to see more than one between Randy Couture and Fedor Emelianenko. For the good of the sport, the UFC president should put everything else aside and do what he has to do to make this fight happen. Randy Couture: Should make a concession and defend his UFC heavyweight title if White agrees to allow him to fight Emelianenko. Fedor Emelianenko: The man who once was universally regarded as the world’s top MMA fighter continues to fight questionable opposition. Emelianenko owes it to the sport and his fans to take on quality fighters. If it’s not Couture, then he must insist on it being Josh Barnett. “Big” John McCarthy: The famous ex-referee should promise candor in his new role as an analyst for The Fight Network. He’s collected many great stories during his years as an official and he should promise to share them with his viewers. Great article with some great insights. Props to Kevin Iole.

MMA 2007: Year in Review
(cpcmovies.co.uk)
Even after nearly fifteen years of mainstream history, the sport of mixed martial arts really took off in 2007. We will look back in fifteen more years from now and see 2007 as the year where MMA finally became accepted into the mainstream and finally took of as a legitimate big-time sport, forever replacing boxing as the top combat sport in the world. In this year where there were eight free UFC events on Spike TV in the US, the lower weight classes also took center stage; legend Randy Couture resigned from the UFC amid intense speculation; Chuck Liddell took a nosedive, losing not only his belt but two straight fights; PRIDE was sold to the owners of the UFC; two fighters died, one as a result of action in the ring; and lightweight champion Sean Sherk was stripped of his title after testing positive for steroids. There are so many things that I tried to fit into this column, and I did the best I could to sum up the biggest fights and review the biggest stories of the year.

Fedor Emelianenko: Fight with Randy Couture “Will Take Place”
(mmajunkie.com)
Randy Couture wants the fight. Fedor Emeliananeko wants it too. And according to the top-ranked Russian fighter, he fully expects the heavyweight battle to happen sometime soon. While being interviewed for Monday’s “Yarennoka!” event in Japan, Emeliananeko was asked about the likelihood of him facing Couture in the next year. Couture, the UFC’s heavyweight champion, resigned from the organization in October but has recently stated that he wants to fight Emeliananeko. The 44-year-old UFC hall-of-famer says it’s the one final thing he wants to accomplish before he retires. Emelianenko loves the idea. Not too much new here, just more to support that this fight will indeed take place post Oct of this year. Maybe another Yarranoka style event on New Years Eve with Randy/Fedor headlining?? If they do get these two together this time it will happen in the US so we don't have to stay up all night to watch it

K-1 Fighters Get Ready for New Year's Eve
(mmaweekly.com)
OSAKA, December 30, 2007 -- When Alfred Tennyson wrote "ring out the old, ring in the new," the English poet was referring to the pealing of church bells to mark the beginning of a new year. It is also a Japanese tradition to strike the temple bell on December 31, but these days Tennyson's phrase could just as easily be applied to the ringside bell at the Dynamite!! New Year's Eve fightsport extravaganza. Over the last five years, K-1 Premium Dynamite!! has become one of the most widely-watched television productions in Japan, with estimates of up to 30 million viewers. This is fightsport entertainment for the entire family, and tomorrow's lineup is designed for maximum appeal. The evening's 15 fights will feature wily veterans and wide-eyed teens; popular television "tarento" and foreign behemoths; and yes, more than a few match ups aimed at martial arts purists.

Rampage being sued for $10 Million
I found this on lordsofpain.net -- UFC Light Heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is being sued by former representatives White Chocolate Management. Here's the official statement: “White Chocolate Management, a Hollywood, Florida based management and Promotion Company and its President Reed Wallace have filed a $10,000,000 lawsuit in the State Supreme Court of New York, against Rampage Jackson, Juanito Ibarra and Ibarra’s Mixed Martial Arts Company for breach of contract, interference with contract and defamation arising out of a breach of a contract and false statements by Ibarra that ‘WCM had nothing to do with Rampage’ although it was Ibarra and his attorneys that prepared the final contract between Rampage and White Chocolate.”. Wonder what happened?
