Fedor, Sakuraba And Shamrock To Attend Bellator Fan Fest
(bjpenn.com)
Bellator MMA president Scott Coker has announced that three of the biggest MMA legends will be in attendance for Bellator’s Fan Fast on Sept. 19 in San Jose, which is apart of their next major event, ‘Bellator: Dynamite 1'. Fedor Emelianenko, Kazushi Sakuraba and Frank Shamrock will all be apart of the proceedings. So does this mean Fedor is close to entering the Bellator cage? It would make sense since Coker and Fedor have worked together in the past, but the Bellator boss says they actually haven’t talked to Fedor’s camp about his return.

Scott Coker agrees with fighters regarding the Ali Act in MMA: "I think it's a pretty good idea"
(bloodyelbow.com)
The never-ending conflict in mixed martial arts between management and labor, or should we say between promoters and fighters, has really come to the fore this year. Over the last few months an antitrust lawsuit, the new Reebok deal, and the USADA testing policy have sparked debates on fighter pay, lost sponsorship income, and lack of input from the athletes on the rules and regulations governing them. And this is in only in the UFC, never mind the number of complaints that one sees directed at other promotions. All of this has had led to discussions of possible solutions, including perhaps the most serious talk of a fighters association the sport has seen to date.

Former UFC lightweight Josh Thomson expected to join Bellator MMA
(bloodyelbow.com)
Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson is expected to sign with Bellator MMA after the UFC declined to give him a new contract. According to sources with knowledge of the situation, the UFC declined to offer Thomson a new contract once his most recent one expired following his loss to Tony Ferguson last month. As a result, Thomson is close to finalizing a new deal with Bellator MMA, which would reunite him with his long-time promoter Scott Coker. That new contract is expected to be announced in the coming days.

Wanderlei Silva, other fighters push for Muhammad Ali Act in MMA
(bloodyelbow.com)
At the annual Convention of the Association of Boxing Commissions in San Diego, Wanderlei Silva and a host of ex-UFC fighters made a push for a Muhammad Ali act in the sport of MMA. The last few years have really brought the idea of a possible union of MMA fighters into the forefront. While a union is unlikely at this point, one thing that fighters have been doing is looking at the idea of introducing something similar to the Muhammad Ali act for the sport of MMA.
