Fight The Good Fight : Preacher Who Knows More Than Most About Bible-Bashing
(news.independent.co.uk)
In the smoky blue light of a studio a semi-naked fighter steps towards the camera.

Fight Club
(hawaiibusiness.com)
Ultimate fighter Kendall Grove earned the nickname “Da Spyder,” mainly because of his long, lanky 6-foot-6-inch frame and his nimbleness in the ring. But the 24-year-old Maui native’s nickname could have just as easily been derived from his rough-and-tumble career, which, until recently, resembled a tangled web of frustration and disappointment.

(msn.foxsports.com)
The International Fight League is negotiating to sign what would be its biggest talent addition to date in Kurt Angle, the 1996 Olympic gold medal wrestler who later became a successful pro grappler.

Rua Set To Rock UFC's World
(presstelegram.com)
To the average person Mauricio "Shogun" Rua is not the second coming of Michael Jordan, he is not worthy of being welcomed by paparazzi at the airport like David Beckham, nor is he the icon that fellow Brazilian Pele is to soccer, but to hardcore mixed martial arts fans, Rua is all those celebrities combined and more

Liddell And His Women

Thank God for Chuck Liddell. Today has been a completely boring day as far as MMA news goes. When the top story is that there’ll be weigh-ins tomorrow and a replay of EliteXC on Saturday, you know shit is slow.

Sanchez a Hungry Lion again
(ufc.com)
The first loss. It’s a traumatic event for most fighters, who in response will try to do anything in their power to erase the memory of that defeat as soon as it happens. For some, that means getting back into the gym within days. For others, the easiest way to deal with a setback is to demand another fight immediately to get a quick win and move on.
