Hari 'Throws to Hurt With Every Shot'
(mma.fanhouse.com)
I've always believed that the one thing Japan's K-1 kickboxing promotion needs to take off in the United States is the emergence of one recognizable star. It's looking increasingly like HDNet, which owns the U.S. TV rights to K-1, thinks that star is Badr Hari. On Friday night HDNet will air a 90-minute show devoted to the career of Hari, a Dutch-Moroccan heavyweight with powerful punches and a bad-boy attitude. The above video promoting the show pretty well describes why Hari has the potential to emerge as the first kickboxer to really gain traction with American fans.

Dana White: UFC Heavyweight Division Best Ever, TUF Makes It Stronger
(mma.fanhouse.com)
We're less than a week away from the start of Season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, and in a commercial to promote the show, UFC President Dana White makes a strong claim: "In UFC history, I don't think our heavyweight division has ever been as exciting as it is now." The purpose of this commercial is to hype the Ultimate Fighter cast members as beefing up that already exciting heavyweight division, but I'm more interested in what White said about the division as it stands right now.

Yves Edwards: "I don't want to go out like the last two or three years"
(mmajunkie.com)
Four wins, seven losses. It's a record that would be less-than-desirable for any professional fighter over an 11-fight stretch. But for a man once known as the uncrowned champion of the UFC's lightweight division, it's simply unacceptable.

(mmaunltd.com)
Infamous street fighter turned mixed martial artist Kimbo Slice talked exclusively to our editor Matt Freeman earlier today regarding his time in the house and what he had hoped to achieve through appearing in the reality series. Despite public perceptions, Kimbo (real name Kevin Ferguson) is an intelligent athlete who is dedicated to doing as well as possible in the fighting arena and the challenge was his main motivation. Dana White's open invitation for Ferguson to enter the house was taken on for the calibre of opponents available, not to silence White.
