Five Ounces of Pain: An interview with Urijah Faber
Mixed martial arts has come under greater scrutiny now that it's attracting more mainstream media attention. Pundits who criticize the sport usually resort to the ignorant stereotype that mixed martial artists are Neanderthal-like bar room brawlers who never made it past high school and don't possess any true skill.

StrictlyMMA Preview: IFL Washington
The IFL enters the stretch run of their regular season with this Friday's card at the Everett Events Center in Everett, Washington. This card features matchups between two teams on the verge of playoff qualification and two that are on the verge of elimination. The Los Angeles Anacondas are in the catbird seat in their matchup with the Seattle Tigersharks. The Anacondas need two match wins to clinch a playoff spot outright and one to clinch at least a tie (and their match winning time would make them a good bet to win the tiebreaker). To qualify, the Tigersharks must beat the Anacondas 4-1. A 3-2 victory would put them into the tiebreaker. As we’ll see neither scenario is likely. StrictlyMMA.com

StrictlyMMA: K-1/Elite XC Dynamite Preview
Despite numerous card changes and the fact that FEG had trouble securing a promoters license, K-1/ Elite XC Dynamite will take place this Saturday. The card has been incredibly weakened from what was first rumored. Neither Josh Barnett nor Sergei Kharatinov will be participating. Gina Carano had to withdraw due to illness, which leaves the event without a women's match. Hong Man Choi was not medically cleared and is going to be replaced by Min Soo Kim. The latest changes occurred with Antonio Silva withdrawing from his fight against Jonathan Wiezorek and Choi Mu Bae withdrawing from his fight against "Mighty" Mo Siliga. However, the show's structure remains the same. Three fights will be shown on Showtime network and will be put on by Elite XC. This broadcast will lead into the Showtime PPV event. StrictlyMMA.com
