Ecko recently started sponsoring MMA fighters including Frank Mir, Michael Bisping, and Nate Diaz.

Vancouver says not yet to MMA
Mixed martial arts isn't returning to Vancouver; at least not yet. Council members voted against having the Vancouver Athletic Commission sanction MMA events Thursday. Instead it has asked the province to provide the sanctioning body for the sport just as it did in September 2007 when MMA became effectively banned in the city.

The mysterious stylings of Professor X—Xavier Foupa-Pokam
“I have a very violent style,” Professor X says from his compound with the Snake Team. X is Xavier Foupa-Pokam by light of day, and this accounts for his cult following all over his native France, where mixed martial arts are still mostly sort of illegal but cage worship remains in full effect. Obviously, having a violent style doesn’t help assuage the French government’s concerns.

Vince McMahon: UFC Has Hurt Boxing, Not WWE
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter in advance of WrestleMania XXV, McMahon talked about the UFC. "Most people thought at one point that we would be competitors. But it turns out they are not competition to us at all, or hardly at all. They are sport, we are entertainment; it's a huge difference. The revenue they have cut into is that of boxing."

"King Mo" battled through more than just Kawamura for Sengoku win
"The problem is I have no PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) already," Lawal said. "And now my ACL may be gone." While Lawal's performance in the bout with Kawamura certainly paled in comparison to his three prior outings, understanding that two major ligaments in his knee were completely ineffective explains a bit about the fight.

Another Husband-Wife MMA Couple Emerging
Fighting, both as a fighter and spectator/supporter, has been a big part of Emily Fisher's life. Between operating a gym run by and training with her husband, UFC fighter Spencer Fisher, Emily Fisher is part of a growing subset of MMA fighters, those who don't necessarily fight for the money or the fame but the self-respect and pleasure of accomplishment. The days spent preparing in the gym translate into confidence in other aspects of life, and the exhilaration of a fight simply can't be matched in day jobs or other errand tasks. Emily, 3-1 and preparing for her 5th fight in May, is one of a growing breed of part-time fighters who accept the business of MMA as part of their lives.
