Lavar Johnson released
(bloodyelbow.com)
This news is sort of old but I couldn't find a thread on the PG. So I guess Matt Riddles statement of "Dana doesn't fire exciting fighters" doesn't hold true. Farewell Lavar! Your brutal uppercut KO's of Pat Barry & Joey Beltran will forever be in my heart!

First UFC Loss Behind Him, Junior dos Santos Focused on Mark Hunt and Regaining Title
(mmaweekly.com)
There’s an old saying in fight sports that goes something to the effect of: it’s not the wins in your career that define you; it’s the losses. For former UFC heavyweight championJunior dos Santos, his dose of MMA reality came at the hands of Cain Velasquez at UFC 155 in December of last year. Since suffering his first defeat in the vaunted Octagon, dos Santos has had time to reflect on the stinging defeat to the Mexican-American bruiser, do some much needed soul searching, and refocus on his ultimate objective.

Promoters say MMA fighter Rowan faked death
(espn.go.com)
Mixed martial arts promoters Christos Piliafas and Scott DiPonio were shocked to learn that one of their fighters was a suspect in the holdup of a Michigan gun shop this week. After all, it was only two weeks ago that they raised more than $1,000 to help the amateur heavyweight's family pay for his funeral. Charles Rowan, 25, didn't die in a February car wreck while en route to his fifth bout, as his girlfriend, Rosalinda Martinez, claimed that night, according to DiPonio. The couple and a friend, Michael Bowman, were in a Gladwin courtroom Friday to hear the charges against them: armed robbery and assault with intent to murder. Each requested a court-appointed attorney. DiPonio, who owns the Diamond D fight team, said he realized they had been duped when he saw Rowan's mug shot on television identifying him as a person of interest in the Monday robbery of Guns and Stuff in Sage Township, about 100 miles southeast of Traverse City. The store's owner, Richard Robinette, was severely beaten and remained in serious but stable condition Friday in a Flint hospital.
