Now a free man, former UFC fighter Reza Madadi details past ‘two years of hell’ in Swedish prison
(mmafighting.com)
On a lazy afternoon in May 2013, three masked men parked a black Audi outside of a Bottega Veneta in Stockholm, Sweden, smashed the front door with a sledgehammer, then looted the luxury handbag store before peeling off to a garage in nearby Akersberga. Three months later, then-UFC lightweight Reza Madadi received an 18-month prison sentence for his alleged role in the aggravated burglary, losing his freedom, his career, and his status as a beloved national figure overnight. Madadi was the only person imprisoned for the crime.

Fedor Emelianenko on female fighters: 'MMA is for men. It’s a man sport'
(mmajunkie.com)
Fedor Emelianenko’s legacy as one of the greatest fighters in the history of MMA is cemented. He may well be the last fighter who was able to establish his greatness without ever setting foot in the UFC. But his conservative take on women’s MMA could have an impact on the way Emelianenko (34-4) is thought of by a new generation of fans who didn’t see him dominate the heavyweight division during his days in PRIDE. Emelianenko ran roughshod on the heavyweight division from 2001-2009 with a 28-fight unbeaten streak. (Courtesy of on Twitter)

UFC Faces New Set of Battles
(cnbc.com)
The women's bantamweight title bout continued the fast-paced Ultimate Fighting Championship's return to form after an injury-riddled 2014 that saw bad news on the revenue and credit rating fronts. Now, the once high-flying UFC is trying hard to put last year behind it. "It put in a level of volatility to our business that we've never seen. To be honest with you, it was kind of an outlier year. We've had injuries we've had to deal with, but nothing to that magnitude," UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta told CNBC...

Schaub: Given penalties, PED use makes sense
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Schaub compellingly made the case that given the current penalties for PED use, it makes sense to use them. "Listen, I would love to hear an argument for why I shouldn't do steroids," he said. "Give me one. Let's say I take steroids and test positive. Say I'm a young kid [getting to the UFC] and I ask my dad, 'Dad, why shouldn't I take steroids?' Can I say, 'Well, you'll never be world champ.' That's not true. Anderson Silva's world champ. 'Well, you'll never fight for a title.' That's not true.

Bellator 133 purses: 32k-1k
(mixedmartialarts.com)
The salaries reflect an unfortunate reality in the sport. Bellator is the second largest promotion in North American, and had ten fighters on the card making 1/1. The main event fighter, former league middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko got $20,000 to win. In MMA, it gets worse from there, as you move into smaller promotions. The above figures are the fighter payout information that promoters are required by state law to submit to the California athletic commission, including the winners' bonuses. The figures do not represent a full accounting of each fighter's income.
