Olympic wrestler Cormier training for MMA.
(mmajunkie.com)
by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Aug 12, 2009 at 5:30 am ET Yet another high-profile amateur wrestler is heading to the world of mixed martial arts. Daniel Cormier, a two-time Olympian and the U.S. squad's 2008 Olympic team captain, was a two-time JUCO national champion and NCAA Division I runner-up at Oklahoma State University in 2001. MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the move from Zinkin Entertainment & Sports Management, a high-profile agency that now represents Cormier. Cormier, who will train with other collegiate-wrestling champions such as Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck at American Kickboxing Academy, is expected to compete in the light-heavyweight division upon his MMA debut. Cormier's wrestling accomplishments are in no short supply. Among the feats are three high-school state championships in his native Louisiana, a 117-6 collegiate record that included three-time All-American honors, six U.S. senior national championships and a fourth-place finish at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. While many fighters compete in relative obscurity early in their careers, Cormier is likely to follow in the footsteps of former amateur wrestling champions such as Ben Askren and "King" Mo Lawal and garner immediate attention.

Is the UFC Truly Dominant? A Brief Examination of the Boxing vs. MMA Debate
(bloodyelbow.com)
I've always been loudly outspoken in my feelings that there is no "war" between boxing and MMA. Since I was old enough to remember I have been a boxing fan. In fact, I got my start at SB Nation as a writer at BadLeftHook. And I've always been clear that I feel the constant MMA chorus of "boxing is dead" is very much overstated. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to approach the "boxing is healthy" argument and Paul Magno at EastSideBoxing very much takes the wrong approach with statements such as:

Women's MMA reality show
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Television producer Lyle Howry is quick to dismiss attempts to compare his new women's MMA reality show to "The Ultimate Fighter," but "TUF"-like success is very much his goal. "Ultimate Women Challenge" recently began production and will bring together 16 MMA fighters in September to compete for contracts with a yet-to-determined promotion. The show will put the women through three weeks of intense training and, Howry hopes, deliver the same jolt for women's MMA that "TUF" produced for the sport as a whole.

The Five Rounds Debate: Fighter Safety & Casual Fan Interest
(bloodyelbow.com)
Yesterday, our own Mike Fagan posted an article reporting that the Nevada State Athletic Commission will decide on some new rules for MMA on August 17th. One of the rule changes set to be voted on by the NSAC is to increase rounds within "special events" to five rounds at the discretion of the NSAC. This will most likely be in response to a request from the promotion. The criteria for which a bout falls under the "special" criteria has yet to be mentioned by the NSAC.
