Breaking News: Gracie Fails Drug Test.
Mixed martial arts icon Royce Gracie (Pictures), best known as the slender gi-wearing Brazilian who twisted oversized competitors into knots during the early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, tested positive for traces of Nandrolone, a commonly used anabolic steroid, following his decision win over Kazushi Sakuraba (Pictures), June 2 in Los Angeles, the California State Athletic Commission revealed Thursday. Gracie (14-3-3) has been suspended from June 2, 2007 through May 30, 2008, and is fined $2,500, the maximum penalty by the CSAC. The 40-year-old member of the legendary fighting family has until July 13 to appeal the suspension to the CSAC. Calls to Gracie's representatives were not immediately returned. ... I gotta say, wow... Just wow... out of all the people. Crazy.

Forrest Griffin - Nothing Else Matters
How do you describe 2006 for Forrest Griffin? Did his gallant stand in a close decision loss against former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz and a rematch victory over Stephan Bonnar make it his best year as a fighter, or did his devastating TKO defeat at the hands of Keith Jardine in December forever mark that 12 month period as the worst of his professional life?

Irish Pride: Dustin Hazelett vs. Stevie Lynch
When Dustin Hazelett first found out he was fighting Stevie Lynch he wasn't sure what to think. This was mainly due to the fact that Lynch has only had four pro fights in his career to date. That isn't to so say Lynch isn't talented. He impressively won all four fights by either submission or TKO. LINK

Jason MacDonald - Hard Lessons Lead to ‘Victory’
It’s one of the fight game’s oldest clichés, but also one of it’s truest: you learn more from a loss than you ever will from a win. Of course, no undefeated fighter believes this adage, and when he’s running along and taking people out with little difficulty, losing is the furthest thing from his mind. LINK

They were lightweights on the scale only. When the bell rang tonight at the Seminole Hard Rock Live Arena, and for the next 15 minutes of torrid give and take, Spencer Fisher and Sam Stout were heavyweights in heart, determination, and relentless action, and when it was all said and done, Fisher had scored a unanimous three round decision victory to even his series with Stout at one apiece and set the stage for a rubber match that would be welcomed by any mixed martial arts fan.
