Report: UFC champ T.J. Dillashaw leaves Alpha Male to train in new MMA team in Colorado

TJ Dillishaw said: "In regards to my upcoming fight camp, I will be doing my training in Colorado. The last six years at Team Alpha Male have been irreplaceable and my brothers there will forever be family to me. I thank each and every one of them for helping me along the way and being a part of this journey we've shared. This is not the end of being a part of the Team Alpha Male family, but a new chapter in my career. "I will be spending my next full training camp with Elevation Fight Team as they've offered me an opportunity that I couldn't pass up, with an incredible coaching staff and state-of-the-art facilities. "I want to thank everyone for the continued support as this has not been a decision I've taken lightly."

Uriah Faber said: "We are sad to see [Dillashaw] go, but we're excited about the next set of champions being developed at Team Alpha Male."
Dillashaw's striking coach Duane Ludwig isn't a part of the team, however, Dillashaw will still be training with him since he also lives in Colorado. In addition to Ludwig, Dillashaw's new coaches will be Leister Bowling (head coach), Elliot Marshall (jiu-jitsu), Christian Allen (striking) and Loren Landow (strength & conditioning). The team, which already includes the likes of Matt Brown, Clay Guida, Neil Magny, Brandon Thatch, Cat Zingano, Drew Dober and others, is based out of the MusclePharm Sports Science Center & Research Institute in Denver. It's exclusive to professional fighters. Original Post: Report says he is going to Colorado to train with Duane Ludwig and open a new gym named MP Elevation.

Former PRIDE FC president: Speculated $2.5 million Fedor Emelianenko fee is absolutely not true
"Information on the $ 2.5 million fee - this is absolutely not true," Sakikabara told R-Sport (via Bloody Elbow). "I'm sure that during various negotiations with US organizations, Fedor was offered a much larger amount than our options. The return of Fedor in Japan has completely nothing to do with money, and it is a fact."

Wanderlei Silva files motion to dismiss lawsuit, says Belfort test evidence of UFC cheating
Attorneys for Wanderlei Silva have filed a motion to dismiss the UFC's lawsuit against the renowned MMA fighter with the Clark County, Nevada District Court on Friday, October 3, 2015. The motion claims that the UFC's suit is an attempt "to chill Silva's free speech" and "public participation" as well as send a message to other fighters, and that Silva comments about "cheating" and "fight-fixing" received additional credibility with Vitor Belfort's recently revealed lab results. The UFC filed a complaint of "Intentional Misconduct" against Silva on July 29th for comments he had published on Facebook referring to "fight fixing" in the UFC and comparing the promotion to professional wrestling. Silva's counsel, Terry A. Coffing of the firm Marquis Aurbach Coffing, argues that the complaint should be dismissed because it fails to show damages from his comments or prove his comments were false, and that the UFC's true motivation behind filing the suit is to silence his client.
