With training camp breakup, WSOF fight between Fodor brothers just became grudge match
When Ben Fodor (6-1-1) – the fighter known for his superhero alter-ego, “Phoenix Jones” – agreed to fight his adopted brother Caros Fodor (10-5), the deal was that they would both continue to train at the AMC Pankration gym in Kirkland, Wash., prior to their bout at WSOF 32 on July 30. But eight weeks out from the fight, according to Ben, AMC Pankration head coach Matt Hume told him he’d need to find somewhere else to train for this one. And now?

Edmond Tarverdyan: Ronda May Never Watch Film of Holm Loss
Film study is a big part of many fighters' preparation. A couple months after losing via KO to Holly Holm, former bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey still has not watched film of the UFC 193 main event, however, according to her coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Tarverdyan says that Rousey may never actually watch it, in fact. "It's not about wanting to watch, it's about whether or not the timing is right, or if it's necessary," he recently told ESPN.com

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.

Drug Free Sport Issues Statement on Jose Aldo Drug Test Situation in Brazil
The organization that attempted to take a urine sample from Jose Aldo last month only for its representative to get in trouble with Brazilian authorities is saying it did nothing wrong. Drug Free Sport sent Ben Mosier to Rio de Janeiro to conduct a urine test on Aldo, the UFC featherweight champion, on June 11 on behalf of the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC). When Mosier arrived at Aldo’s Nova Uniao gym a, Aldo’s coach Andre Pederneiras phoned police and the Brazilian MMA Commission (CABMMA). Aldo complied with the urine test, but the sample was thrown out when authorities determined that Mosier did not have the correct work visa to conduct business in Brazil. Aldo was tested the next day by a collector accredited by WADA alongside a CABMMA official. The sample was sent to WADA-accredited Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory in Salt Lake City In a statement issued by Drug Free Sport COO Chris Guinty on Friday, the organization is denying any wrongdoing or unethical behavior. In early June 2015, Drug Free Sport was engaged by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (“NSAC”) to conduct a single urine test for an athlete in Brazil. Drug Free Sport’s preparation and execution of the testing event in Brazil complied with ethical best practices in anti-doping collections. Proper work visa applications detailing Drug Free Sport’s job functions were submitted to the Brazilian Consulate in Chicago, Illinois on June 18, 2012, and a ten year work visa was issued by the Consulate and relied upon by the Drug Free Sport collector in subsequent testing events. Drug Free Sport does not comment on client program specifics related to any collection event, but the NSAC, the UFC and Drug Free Sport were diligent in their effort to ensure a fair and ethical collection event in Brazil.

Watch Donald Cerrone Stiffen Sparring Partner With Head-Kick Knockout (Video)
Doesn't look like Donald Cerrone was going full speed, so perhaps his sparring partner is a little glassy in the beard department, or just got hit in that magic spot. Either way, you can bet this is the ending "Cowboy" is hoping for when he fights Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 187 in May.
