Is Kimbo Real Deal Or Just Really Overrated?
With Bo Cantrell of Citrus Heights, California (10-10) being named as the next stop on the Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson MMA Experiment (my title for his newfound career-the only way I’m taking it off is if and when he manages to beat a top 25 heavyweight or he and his people offer me my own backyard knuckle scrape DVD project), the question on everyone’s mind had to be whether or not this man is “legit.”

Let's face it, UFC is plain boring
First, a disclaimer for all the low-brow, mouth-breathing Neanderthals who threatened bodily harm the last time I wrote on this subject: This is only my opinion.

The weigh-ins for the International Fight League’s first World Grand Prix tournament took place Friday, but not without a few bumps in the road. Donny Liles was 6 lbs. over the max limit of 171 and Horwich, Ray, and Heleno came in overweight as well. It is surprising to see this many fighters come in overweight. This is bad for the IFL, right when they were trying to get back on track. Their first time live on tv and they have four fighters who can't make weight.

Rashad Evans: "I’m just a better fighter than Bisping."
Rashad Evans seems to be feeling very confident about his upcoming clash with fellow TUF winner and light heavyweight contender Michael Bisping. I do just about everything better than Michael Bisping, said Evans. "I think he’s pretty tough but I’m just a better fighter than him. I felt Bisping had a hard time with Hamill. He was being more physical than him — and I’m definitely going to be more physical than Bisping. I want to make my mark and say, ‘This is where it’s at’." Evans, who last fought the ever popular Tito Ortiz to a draw last July at UFC 73, is undefeated and looks to step past Bisping at UFC 78 for a possible light heavyweight title shot against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.

Ken Shamrock Sues The UFC
The following was part of a radio interview conducted on MMAWeekley Radio: “The fact is, we have a lawsuit going on right now,” Shamrock stated in an interview with MMAWeekly Radio. “They released me from my contract. I had one fight left. Now, we’re going to go after them for the damages and that’s why I couldn’t fight. I couldn’t fight because I was holding up to my end of the bargain with them. Then they turn around and didn’t hold up to their end of the bargain because they released me from my contract illegally, they breeched my contract, I am now open and ready to fight.”

Shogun Rua On His Knee, Forrest Griffin, Couture, And His Future
Below are excerpts from an interview conducted with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua by punchdrunkgamer.com: Shogun on his knee: The knee is great, the surgery was a success and the doctor told me that everything is running better than the original schedule. I'm already doing physiotherapy and I think that I will be fight training in December. I will be back fighting in February or March, I hope so. Shogun on a rematch with Forrest Griffin and a possible fight with Tito Ortiz: I don’t like to choose my opponents, I want the UFC belt and I'm sure that Forrest will be in my way to accomplish this. So a rematch is just a matter of time. As I told you, I don't choose my opponents but I can fight Ortiz, no problem. Now that I have a recent defeat I will need to prove that I can have the UFC belt and Ortiz is probably living with the same situation. There is good chance for this fight to happen. Shogun on Couture, Fedor and M-1: I like the idea to have more Events like the UFC and PRIDE. It is good for the sport, the fighters and for the fans. Someone told me about the money offers for both (Fedor and Randy), if the numbers are true I'm sure that it is great news for all of the fighters, the sport is going for a new level. M-1 for now is a good promise, UFC is a reality and I think that Fedor is trying to get the best for his career. Randy is the UFC image and maybe there is something that they will fix and we will see him in the UFC again.

Travis Lutter: "I can beat Anderson Silva."
Travis Lutter recently sat down with fighthype.com for an interview. Below is an interesting excerpt: Lutter On Anderson Silva: I really think I can beat Anderson Silva. I made a mistake during the fight and as far as the weight cut. I don't want to take anything away from Anderson's win. I made a mistake in the fight and got caught and I don't think I would make it again. I'd like to fight him again. I think I could take him down and impose my game the way I was. I'd really like to get another shot at Anderson. I think stylistically, I match up a lot better than most of the middleweights in the world with him.
