Some Joe Doerkson News.
Joe Doerksen has signed a 3 fight contract with Pride and is rumored to fight in the next Pride card, He has recently trained with Rich Franklin helping prepare Franklin for Jason. He also trained with Jeremy 'Gumby' Horn, and last weekend had a warm-up fight in Japan in DEEP. Joe won via Triangle choke. Is anyone excited to see how he fairs in Pride. He has recently fought in the IFL and has faught Matt Lindland in the UFC which he lost and therefore didn't get another fight in the UFC. I have been impressed with his performance and wanna see how a fellow Canadian will do in Pride. So anyone wanna send some War Doerksen for some good luck in his upcoming fights?

Fedor vs Lindland
link "I absolutely, absolutely would like a rematch,” said Lindland. “I’m not saying the outcome would have been any different but that’s a much different fight if the referee does what he’s supposed to and I wind up on top and am able to utilize my skills there.”

Arona’s mind on the ADCC
link Ricardo Arona has no time to lament. Knocked out by Rameau Sokodjou last Sunday, at Pride 34, the Brazilian Top Team black belt is already looking ahead and worrying about getting over the illness - suspected dengue fever - that affected his performance in his battle with the Cameroonian. "I am confirmed at the ADCC, to fight in the under-99kg category. I want to get better fast, as I have little time,"said Arona to GRACIEMAG.com. When questioned about the possibility of facing Roger Gracie in the superfight, since the current champion Dean Lister is out due to injury, Arona says he sees no problem in that. “I don’t know anything about that yet, but I would surely accept. That even picks me up a bit, it would be an interesting fight,” said Arona, who was absent from the last ADCC because of the Pride middleweight Grand Prix, and thus did not defend the superfight title he won in 2003 with a win over Mark Kerr. Set for the 5th and 6th of May, ADCC 2007 has not yet announced the substitute for Dean Lister. So stay tuned to GRACIEMAG.com to find out all the news relating to the greatest submission grappling event on the planet.

Interview with Cobra Kai's Sonny "Boy" Nohara
link On December 16, 2006, Sonny "Boy" Nohara received his brown-belt from the "American Ronin" Marc Laimon; making him just the fifth person ever to receive this rank at Las Vegas' famed Cobra Kai Academy. What's even more impressive is that Sonny achieved this feat after training jiu-jitsu for only four and a half years. A native of Hilo, Hawaii, Sonny has won many gi and no-gi tournaments all over the west coast, which have included many advanced, purple-belt, and super fight matches. Fortunately, I was able to catch up with Cobra Kai's newest brown-belt just before he competes in the GQ U.S. Nationals Pro Flyweight 8-man tournament this Saturday in Las Vegas. good read
