Fedor Defends Combat Sambo World Championship
Fedor Emelianenko (Pictures) won the open-weight division of the 31st Combat Sambo World Championship on Nov. 10 in Prague. With the win, the 31-year-old Russian, widely regarded as the No. 1 heavyweight fighter in the world, defended the title he won two years ago in the Czech Republic capital. To do so, he had to step on the mats only once. The 220-plus-pound representative from Uzbekistan did not show in Prague, thus giving Fedor a bye to the semifinals. There he quickly took out a Bulgarian fighter via choke to set up a meeting with a Ukrainian competitor in the finals. Much to Fedor's chagrin, the Ukrainian fighter, who had defeated UFC veteran Kristof Midoux (Pictures) in the other semifinal, did not turn up either, handing Fedor the victory.

Kimbo Ready to Turn it Up a Notch
When Internet street fighting legend Kevin Ferguson (a.k.a. “Kimbo Slice”) decided to make his transition into mixed martial arts back in June against former boxing champion Ray Mercer, many people thought it was a publicity stunt. Little did they know how serious he had taken his new profession. After quickly submitting Mercer in less than a minute, people started looking at Kimbo Slice a little more seriously.

Kimbo Ready For A Big Slice Of MMA
Kevin Ferguson, aka Kimbo Slice, wasn't taken seriously at first when he wanted to give MMA a try. But he's taken it seriously and is ready to prove it on tonight's EliteXC event. Perhaps the best line of the interview on his training: "I haven't had sex in four months." Priceless.

According to the Russian website dnevnik.hr, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic says he will likely return to the ring in January (UFC 80). He also stated his determination to prove all of his doubters wrong and that he briefly considered retirement after the his loss to Chieck Kongo. Below is the full transcript of an interview Cro Cop did with dnevnik.hr: Mirko: CroCop is recovered, it will take a month to begin with sparrings again, although I have a special helmet for protection. The stripes are affecting my visibility so it's not like the real thing, but the regular sparring sessions start in about a month. I think my next fight is going to happen in January.

Andrei Arlovski Wants to Fight Before Negotiating New Deal
It’s not the salary demands that has former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski sitting on the sidelines. The Chicago-based fighter, who has one fight remaining on his current deal, just wants to fulfill the terms of his contract before he considers negotiating a new one. Apparently unwilling to do that, the UFC has kept Arlovski sitting on the sidelines since his UFC 70 victory over Fabricio Werdum nearly seven months ago. Roman Modrowski shed some light on the situation in today’s edition of the Chicago Sun-Times (MMAjunkie.com also mentioned the Arlovski-UFC situation briefly on Wednesday).

Bernard Hopkins Thanks UFC For Helping Boxing
Legendary Boxer Bernard Hopkins, who also doubles as a promoter for Golden Boy Promotions, had some kind words for the UFC in the course of promoting a fight between Shane Mosely and Miguel Cotto according to TheAge.com. "I will say thanks to the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) that boxing now has to step up and make the matches that interest people," he said. Hopkins has gone on record recently about his opinion that the UFC has pushed boxing to make better matches. "Boxing is back like the 1980s, with the (Marvin) Haglers and the (Sugar) Ray Leonards," Hopkins said. "Now the talent is going head to head with other champions."
