Shields Thinks No One Should Be Punished For Strikeforce Brawl.
(mmaweekly.com)
Following the biggest win of his career, Jake Shields soon had another challenger in his face during his post-fight interview, and just seconds later mayhem literally erupted. Jason "Mayhem" Miller came into the cage immediately following Shields' win and challenged the middleweight champion to a rematch for a fight they had in November 2009 in which Shields defeated him by unanimous decision. "He came so fast out of nowhere, and just kind of bumped into me, the way he came up and said rematch, I just thought it was really rude. He got in my face, he bumped me, and interrupted in the middle of the interview," Shields told MMAWeekly Radio on Monday night. Full Article

Jason "Mayhem" Miller Apologizes For Post-Strikeforce Brawl
(bleacherreport.com)
Strikeforce: Nashville had it's share of criticism after the events of Saturday night. Unfortunately, the fight card was overshadowed by the brawl between Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Jake Shields, Gilbert Melendez and the Diaz brothers. Late Sunday night, Miller posted an apology on his website and addressed the situation. Good move by Mayhem or is he being hung out to dry by SF? I think a question that needs to be asked after this is after the events of the other night would Dana still consider signing Sheilds? As defensive as he is of MMA and it's image, is it too big a risk to have Shields posse at events?

Vince McMahon Trying To Get the UFC Banned
(cagesideseats.com)
Sometimes the most intriguing wrestling news stories are broken or teased on the Wrestling Observer / Figure Four Online message boards. This is one such case, as UFC.com writer/German UFC commentator (and former German WWE commentator/marketing staffer/keeper of savage secrets) Oliver Copp let the news leak that Vince McMahon is attempting to sabotage UFC's expansion into key European markets in a thread about Dana White's recent ambition to hold an event at the newly opened largest domed stadium in the world, Cowboy Stadium in Dallas. Saw this on another forum and couldn't believe what I was reading so for all of you out there toi coment on.

Syntax Records featured in April issue of Fight Magazine
(bit.ly)
It’s not uncommon for those familiar with the Syntax Records brand to find hints of MMA intertwined both with the staff, and artists. In fact, some of the Syntax affiliates have been closely following the sport since before it was even called MMA. Thus making sense, that Fight Magazine contacted Syntax when they decided to do an article on independent music and MMA. They even mentioned Syntax as one of only three labels to have their logo make an appearance in the UFC Octagon. Hey, it's pretty exciting for us.

Nogueira’s Trainer Luiz Alves Dies
(sherdog.com)
Luiz Alves, the long-time trainer of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, died Friday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Considered alongside Rudimar Fedrigo as the two most important representatives of muay Thai in Brazil, Alves suffered a stroke on Jan. 26. Doctors induced a coma to control the pressure on his brain. On Friday the pressure increased, leading to a hemorrhage that caused his death. Nogueira had considered Alves his good luck charm. The trainer accompanied “Minotauro” to all of his fights since 2001, except for Nogueira’s two stoppage losses to Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez. Alves’ daughter was getting married the day of the Mir bout, and he had already suffered the stroke by the time Nogueira fought Velasquez.
