Kimo takes a dive
Whenever you think the bar couldn't get lower, someone comes along and shatters your expectations. The latest to sink well below the lowest common denominator is Kimo Leopoldo. If you thought taking a fight with Bas Rutten, talking smack about him, then popping for steroids was all class, just wait.

Cage Rage 21 Current Ticket Sales
If anyone thought that the UFC coming to the UK would affect the ticket sales for Cage Rage in a negative way, well they are wrong as this is so far the fastest selling Cage Rage event in history.
This is a list of how many tickets are currently left:
£1,000 - 11
£200 – 86
£100 – 20
£50 - 212
£35 - 104
£25 - 437
Seeing as how Cage Rage normally sell most of their tickets on the night this is looking very good for them and the UFC coming over hasn't affected their sales much considering there is still a way to go before the event and there are less than 900 tickets left.
