Randy Couture exit shows cracks in slick veneer of the UFC
Leaving the limelight at 44 is not unexpected for an athlete but heavyweight champion Randy Couture's sudden decision to quit the UFC exposes a few cracks in the slick veneer of the mixed martial arts powerhouse. One visible scratch left by Couture on his way out of the UFC concerns money. The lid has been lifted on player salaries in most major pro leagues in North America, either because of the need to fit within salary caps or because unions have decided that their membership benefit when the numbers are known. Not at the UFC, a privately held company that keeps its financials close to its chest. President Dana White chafes about money questions, saying no one cares what people earn and his fighters are happy with their paycheques.

Weed, welterweights and whoopass: UFCmania interview with Nick Diaz
By Jesse Holland Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Nick Diaz is a major player in the sport of mixed martial arts. Fiercely competitive and outspoken almost to a fault, the Californian and loyal student of Cesar Gracie has fought some of the world’s best. Only 24, the wily Diaz continues to fight his way across the industry, recently signing a contract extension with EliteXC that locks him up for the next two years. I had a chance to catch up with Nick last Friday, as he vented on a variety of topics including Mike Aina, the credibility of the UFC welterweight division and brawling with Joe Riggs in a Las Vegas hospital ................................

In a recent interview with the Hungarian newspaper Vercenji, Mirko Cro Cop said that, among other things, he wants to fight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira next. Could still be a good fight but it likely won't happen until 2008 unless something falls through with the Nogueira-Kongo fight at UFC 79.

Proelite (EliteXC) Team With Mark Burnett For New Hit Reality Series
In this article, ProElite teams up with Burnett (famed producer of Survivor and The Contender) to create a new reality series that will feature former pro-atheletes against current EliteXC guys. Two guys already recruited include Football's Herschel Walker, and Baseball's Jose Canseco. Throw in a few other characters of those two's notoriety and you have the making of a potential ratings smash. For those of us who love UFC and consider it the premier brand, this should spill over and create more casual MMA fans. However, this has all the potential to make ProElite (EliteXC) the clear #2. http://www.forbes.com/businesswire/feeds/businesswire/2007/10/11/businesswire20071011005873r1.html
