The Continuing Education of Kendall Grove
Let’s face it, I don’t care how good you are or how experienced, no 185-pound fighter really wants to fight a 6 foot 6 middleweight if he has any choice in the matter. Add in a rapidly improving game and an aggression bordering on recklessness, and you would think that a guy like Kendall Grove is on nobody’s wish list.
Filho was vomiting right before his fight against Joe!

Joining them was manager Ed Soares, who talked about the Brazilian fight team Black House, their relationship with other teams in South America, as well as PAULO FILHO (Pictures)'s US debut, and how the Brazilian was VOMITING right before his title fight with Joe Doerkson.
It's "The Fight Professor" on The Sherdog Radio Network!

Interesting to see how much the WEC fighters make since it's owned by the UFC and the UFC doesn't pay fighters to well.
Drew McFedries Possibly Off UFC 77
There is staph going around at the Miletich school in Bettendorf, IA. Among those infected are UFC fighters Tim Sylvia, Drew McFedries and Spencer Fisher. Fisher has already had to pull out of his 9/19 Spike TV main event match with Din Thomas. UFC has just confirmed Kenny Florian as the replacement. McFedries is scheduled against Marvin Eastman on the 10/20 PPV show in Cincinnati and he's up in the air.
Man, this thing might take down everyone there. Hopefully it won't get to Matt Hughes. I know there are a few people who won't complain about Sylvia getting it though.

Hermes Franca appeared before the California State Athletic Commission this morning requesting a reduction in his one year suspension for testing positive to the anabolic steroid Drostanolone following his UFC 73 lightweight title bout with Sean Sherk. That request was denied.
Dana White Talks Sherk Situation
UFC president, Dana White, spoke with MMAWeekly about the Sean Sherk situation and what the UFC will do with the lightweight title if Sherk's one year suspension by the California State Athletic Commission is upheld.
Sherk & Baroni Granted Extensions
Today at the hearing held by the California State Athletic Commission to hear the appeal cases of several MMA fighters and boxers, UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk and StrikeForce middleweight Phil Baroni were both granted continuances by the commission for a hearing to be held in October.
The cold war: Fedor weighs his options
From Sherdog on Fedors' s choices. I think the UFC should give on the sambo ,and even sign one or two red devil fighter's. However, his manager trying to strong arm the UFC into co-promotion is ridiculous IMO.
CALIFORNIA STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION GRANTS CONTINUANCE FOR SHERK
NV August 6, 2007 – At a hearing in Los Angeles today, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) granted a continuance for UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk’s appeal of his positive test for the banned substance “Nandrolone” after his July 7th win over Hermes Franca at UFC 73 in Sacramento.
Sherk’s attorney Howard L. Jacobs requested the continuance to allow time to acquire documentation from the laboratory where the drug tests were conducted.
Hermes Franca, who tested positive for “Drostanolone” after his July 7 bout with Sherk, was also present at today’s hearing. Franca admitted to taking the substance and the CSAC suspended him for one year beginning July 7 and fined him $2,500.
It is expected that Sherk’s continued appeal will take place at the CSAC’s next meeting in October.
Lister trains with Mirko
CroCop (and Lister) is making all the right moves after suffering the devastating loss to Gabriel Gonzaga. And really, that's always been CroCop's style. He's suffered a few notable losses that wound up serving as diagnostics about his in-ring ability. Now that he understands how important the cage, wrestling, and defensive ground work can be, he's doing everything in his power to bring his skills up to speed. Cheick Kongo's going to have his work cut out for him.
IMO it's great for both of them. I think Mirko needs a bit more help with feeling out the cage, and lister can use some striking help. Ricco is still there, as are vyel, bonjasky and sergi. I'm getting so excited for the upcoming fight with kongo, Mirko seems really dedicated to winning, and going after that belt.
