Yves Edwards Moves To American Top Team
Lightweight Yves Edwards, a PRIDE and UFC veteran, was recently introduced as the newest member of the American Top Team camp. Edwards is on a 3-fight losing streak but feels the move to ATT should help turn his career around. While this definitely gets him in with many top Lightweights, what also caught my eye was his mentioning the importance of being with a top team because there's no fighters' unions in MMA. But just being able to train with some of their LW big names (Kang, Gouveia, Thomas, etc.) should help him quickly turn things around.

MMA & Mexico: A Matter Of Time
MMA is growing in popularity all over the world, but one major area has been largely untouched by it yet: Mexico. While the Hispanic community is very big on boxing, the fanbase for MMA, despite efforts to promote Hispanic stars like Roger Huerta, remains very small and with nowhere near the passionate following for boxing. As a Hispanic boxing and MMA fan I read this with great interest. I think UFC is doing a good job with using Huerta to try and attract more Hispanics and Latinos to MMA, both as fans and fighters, but they need to find more fighters willing to take on the challenge and also not put them in mismatches like what other promotions (namely PRIDE) have done in the past. It would also help if some of the more popular boxing names were to lend their influence and big bucks to MMA, especially since boxing and the brawling aspect of boxing are both important parts of MMA.

Nakamura Fails Post-UFC 76 Drug Test
Kazuhiro Nakamura, who made his UFC debut at UFC 76, failed a post-fight drug test when he tested positive for marijuana. Nakamura lost to Ryoto (Lyoto) Machida by unanimous decision. Doesn't sound like too harsh a penalty, he probably wouldn't have fought again for at least 3 months anyway. There's still the steroid test results though, those are probably a couple weeks away.

Mario Sperry, Ian Freeman to replace two IFL coaches in 2008
http://www.mmafighting.com/news/2007/sperry_freeman_to_replace_two_ifl_coaches_in_2008.html I wonder which coaches they are replacing. I would say Yasuda. Correct me if i'm wrong, but wasn't he just a bodybuilder or does he has a martial arts background. On his website it doesnt say anything about training anything other than weights.

Nogueira vs. Kongo at UFC 79?
That's one of the latest rumors for UFC 79 on 12/29. Perfect timing if you ask me, Nog is coming off a solid debut victory and Kongo just got his biggest win against CC. Put them both in the Octagon, winner gets the next shot at the HW Title.

Daniel Puder Q & A
Making the transition from professional wrestler to mixed martial artist is a very challenging task. With his near submission in a shoot match over Kurt Angle at a World Wrestling Entertainment show, Daniel Puder immediately made a big name for himself. Since leaving WWE for MMA, Puder has looked very impressive in amassing a perfect 5-0 record.

Old-School Event Sparks Backlash In Brazil
Rio Heroes, an MMA show in Brazil produced for a Brazilian website, is to hold its next event tonight and air it online for free. What makes it controversial is it's an "old-school" style event similar to UFC in its early days-no gloves, no time limit, and pretty much no rules. It sounds interesting because they are trying to make it like UFC originally was when it was bare-knuckle no-holds-barred fighting, but that's what's making it controversial in Brazil. But what really strikes me as well is the promoter says he's not promoting MMA, his events are street fights yet he claims he's trying to return MMA to its origins.
