The path to CM Punk goes through Mike Jackson, who thinks the whole thing is a 'massive troll'
(mmafighting.com)
Mike Jackson is the official photographer for Legacy FC. And it's in that capacity that he thought he'd be encountering Mickey Gall next month. When Jackson first got a call from Legacy matchmaker Collin Cantrell two weeks ago, he was really confused. Cantrell was talking about Gall and Legacy and a fight in early February. Jackson wasn't really sure where he fit in. "In my head I'm thinking, 'Y'all gonna fly me to Minnesota to come take pictures of Mickey Gall?'" Jackson said. No, Cantrell explained to Jackson. We want you to fight Gall, the matchmaker told him. "I was like, 'Fight who?'" Jackson said. "He's like, 'If you fight Mickey Gall, you get CM Punk.' That's how they're hyping this up to me. I was like, 'This makes no sense. What are you talking about?'"

(mmafighting.com)
The California State Athletic Commission's war on dehydration and extreme weight cutting continued Tuesday. CSAC passed a package of new, emergency regulations regarding weight cutting at its meeting in Downtown LA. The new rules include a ban on dehydration to make weight, the prohibition of IVs to rehydrate and the ability to move back the time of weigh-ins. "Dehydration and weight cutting are the biggest problem facing mixed martial arts today," CSAC executive officer Andy Foster told the commissioners.

Opinion: The harsh reality of knockouts, concussions and fighter health
(bloodyelbow.com)
MMA is a form of entertainment. I have enjoyed watching this sport as a hobby, a passion and as work. Entertainment takes people away from the struggles of their daily lives, their obstacles and their hardships. When I watch an MMA event, I don't think about work, bills, rent, relationships or the impact of the sport on society and a fighter's livelihood. The only thing I care about is being entertained.

LAS VEGAS – Count Michael Chiesa and Rose Namajunas among the many backers for continued reform in the war against marijuana. Marijuana’s acceptance is constantly growing with more and more states legalizing its usage in one form or another. But in the MMA world, it remains a sticky topic. Chiesa has a solution, though, especially on the heels of Nick Diaz’s recent five-year suspension for failing a test for pot for a third time in Nevada.

The 34-year-old fighter had a heart attack in his sleep over night on Monday night, according to friend and Michigan-based ring announcer Phil Davey.
