Kickboxing champ Tyrone Spong considering MMA debut, promises title run
(mmajunkie.com)
Sick and tired of lay-and-pray? Tyrone Spong might just be your new favorite fighter. The soon-to-be-26-year-old Dutch-Surinamese kickboxer, who opened his striking career unbeaten in his first 65 outings, may soon make the transition to mixed martial arts in the U.S. If (when) he does, Spong has one promise: You will be entertained. "The American fans have shown me a lot of love and a lot of respect," Spong recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "They motivate me. It's guys like that help you keep pushing to get better. If I do come here to the U.S. to do MMA, I will entertain you. That's a promise." Long a staple of the kickboxing scene, MMA fans recently took notice of the knockout artist after he defeated Ray Sefo in a K-1 bout this past October and then took a much-larger Alistair Overeem to a hard-fought decision in a December 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix quarterfinal contest. Spong was then linked to former UFC champ Rashad Evans, who worked with the striking expert in preparation for a UFC 133 bout with Tito Ortiz. Spong said he took the time working with "The Blackzilians" to pick up a few groundfighting techniques in preparation for a potential move to MMA.

Immediately after amputation, one-legged Shea Taylor began prep for pro MMA debut
(mmajunkie.com)
In just a five-month span, Shea Taylor underwent 12 surgeries and invasive procedures on his drastically injured lower left leg. Ultimately, he opted to have the leg amputated, and now just nine months later, he's preparing for his pro MMA debut at the upcoming Wild Bill's Fight Night 40 event. While Taylor will be the first state-sanctioned MMA competitor allowed to wear a prosthesis in a fight, he didn't continue his MMA career to break any barriers. As Taylor told MMAjunkie.com's Kyle Nagel, he simply wanted to feel like his normal self again.

Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez has been asking for a rematch against Aoki for quite some time now, and it looks like he's finally going to get his request.

(mmajunkie.com)
He kept it quiet from all but those closest to him, but Seth Petruzelli probably would have retired had Ricco Rodriguez beat him at Bellator 48. When he instead knocked out the former UFC champ, he experienced a rush of emotions not unlike those he experienced in his CBS-televised win over Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson some three years ago. "If anyone watched when I fell on the ground (after the fight), I was laughing and crying at the same time," he today told MMAjunkie.com.

Renowned Trainer Shawn Tompkins passes away at 37
(mmajunkie.com)
Sources: Renowned MMA trainer Shawn Tompkins dead at 37 by Steven Marrocco on Aug 14, 2011 at 8:44 pm ET A fighter close to Shawn Tompkins says the renowned trainer passed away this morning. Veteran lightweight John Gunderson today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Tompkins "didn't wake up," but he was still unclear on the details surrounding his passing. Longtime friend and confidant Chris Horodecki said the trainer was in Canada and had spoken to him yesterday but was unaware of the bad news when contacted today. Additional sources ultimately confirmed the trainer's death with MMAjunkie.com. Tompkins first emerged on the national MMA scene as a coach in the now-defunct International Fight League. He was first an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Anacondas and was later promoted to head coach after MMA legend Bas Rutten stepped down from the role to assume a commentator position. He later split with the company. Tompkins then migrated to Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas and served as a coach there before splitting with the gym and joining the TapouT Training Facility. The coach, who also competed professionally for a handful of fights a decade ago, nurtured the careers of several notable fighters in his career, including Gunderson, Horodecki, Sam Stout and Mark Hominick. Tompkins, who frequently appeared on MMAjunkie.com Radio, was 37. Check back with MMAjunkie.com for an update on this unfortunate news.
