An Update On Ryan Gracie's Death
It has been confirmed by multiple reports that Ryan Gracie tested positive for marijuana, cocaine, and some kind of anti-anxiety medication. After Gracie's arrest, Psychiatrist Sabino Ferreira de Faria was contacted by Gracie's wife and immediatly went to the jail that was detaining Gracie to attend to him, which he did for the majority of the night. He was informed of Gracie's passing while he was on his way home. The doctor stated that he administered the following drugs to Gracie in his cell in order to calm him down: -Haldol (a powerful antipsychotic), -Fenergan (which has a side effect of sleepiness) -Topamax (for Migraines) -Dienpax (tranquilizer) -OmniPlex (relaxant). We're still awaiting the medical examiner's report to confirm the official cause of death but the police officer who discovered his death believes Gracie died of an apparent heart attack.

Team Rampage on Liddell vs Silva
As December 29th’s long-awaited showdown between Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva, fans and pundits alike are looking at the matchup and breaking it down in every way possible, trying to find the single nugget of information that will illuminate everything and produce a clear favorite. Well, it’s not there, and that’s what makes this not only a meeting between perhaps the two best 205-pound fighters in mixed martial arts history, but an intriguing bout between two fighters whose current standing in the game may not be the same as it was a few years back, but who still have the power and mystique to provoke heated debates. Even a man who has been in the Octagon or ring with Liddell and Silva a combined four times – UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson – is stumped when it comes to picking a winner.
