Epic Fail: Hong Man Choi
(cagepotato.com)
A couple of weeks ago, we lamented the fact that Hong Man Choi’s mandatory army service would take him out of the fight game for three years. The good news is, he failed a physical and will be sent back home. According to the report (which is translated here): Choi submitted medical records indicating that his pituitary adenoma may compress his optic nerve and cause visual problems. His condition was deemed problematic for basic training and was discharged. It is likely that he was determined to be unfit for the next three months. Choi will likely get a re-examination in which case he will “re-start” his duties, get an exemption, or be sent home for yet another physical at a later date, depending on the results… As of now, it is quite likely that Choi may get an exemption since he has a clear reason and has all the necessary documents. Also, it has been reported that his vision has been deteriorating since last year. In an interview with My Daily, Choi was quoted as saying “I couldn’t see the right hook when I fought Mighty Mo.” Choi’s pituitary adenoma was revealed to the media in June of last year through the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) right before Dynamite! USA. The CSAC deemed Choi unfit to compete and refused to issue him a fighter’s license.

At last, Clementi gets his just due
(ufc.com)
No cuts on the face, check. No broken bones, check. Legs 100%, check. Rich Clementi’s ready to go. young guns in Sam Stout at UFC 83 on April 19th? When the call came for him to replace injured Rob Emerson against Terry Etim on May 24th in Las Vegas, Clementi didn’t hesitate to accept the bout, not when he’s in the groove he’s experiencing right now. “From September to December of last year, I fought four times,” said Clementi, who won all four of those bouts, either by submission or TKO. “When I get in that groove and things start clicking and working right, that’s when I perform best.”

George St. Pierre vs. Anderson Silva - Who is the Better Fighter?
(411mania.com)
Welcome back to the Double Leg Breakdown. It was another great UFC card last weekend (short of one miserable fight that I hope never to think about again; I'm looking at you Starnes). I was really happy to see Michael Bisping in good form, but man, did he look skinny! I thought the bar where I watched the fight ordered it in 16:9 format but projected it in 4:3 format. Nice to see that he cut the weight right with diet and not just cutting waterweight.

Remembering Eric Armington
(ufc.com)
Growing up in unforgiving South Boston, Eric Armington knew something about being an underdog in life. Fortunately, he never let that status define him and never let it get in the way of what he wanted to get out of life, a life that was tragically cut short last Saturday in a motorcycle accident in Canton, Massachusetts.

MMA Submission: The MMA/College Wrestling Pipeline
(sports.espn.go.com)
Check out about 30 seconds of any Phil Davis match , and it's obvious why the kid is college wrestling's latest hot MMA prospect. He's a four-time All-American who just won his first national title as a senior. The Penn Stater is an athletic freak, with gi-enormous arms and surprising power for his lanky 197-pound frame. Throw in plenty of personality (he swears he's a sewing addict) and it's obvious why Team Takedown, a year-old organization that "hires" former wrestlers and pays them a salary and living expenses, is after Davis hard. "He's probably our No. 1 target," says TT founder Ted Ehrhardt. "He could be a really good one." Davis may be the top target, but he's not the only one. Here are two more prospects, according to an informal poll of college wrestling coaches, MMA trainers and fighters with a wrestling background. J.D. Bergman, Ohio State: He just lost in the NCAA finals. But he's a long, lean heavyweight who moves well for a big guy. Here's a clip of him defeating Davis last year at 197 pounds . Plus, if you saw the NCAA championships this year, he does an amazing Governator. "He would do well," says one coach of a top-five program. "You gotta be mean to make it in MMA. He looks and sounds nice, but I have no doubt he'd be good at punching people in the face."

UFC Referee Dan Miragliotta Recounts Run-In With Fan At UFC 83
(fightline.com)
Many outlets have erroneously reported that a crazed fan attacked 6-4, 296 pound UFC referee Dan Miragliotta who promptly put the fan in a rear naked choke before other authorities arrived to make the arrest. Miragliotta recounted his side of the story about his run-in with the fan in an email to Mr. Sunshine: The only thing, is that he wasn’t going after me he was charging either GSP or the ring. I just happened to be in between him and his targets. I was asked by the UFC to help with security when the 2 fighters entered the ring area. They where more worried about Matt then GSP.

Interesting Article on Michael Westbrook
(sports.espn.go.com)
TEMPE, Ariz. -- It was early evening at Arizona Combat Sports and the man behind the counter had his feet propped on a desk and his hands folded comfortably behind his head. A visitor inquired about the whereabouts of Michael Westbrook. "I'm Michael Westbrook,'' the man said as he stood and offered a handshake and smile. Those are gestures Westbrook couldn't offer with much certainty or happiness a decade ago in the middle of a turbulent NFL career, when outrageous expectations, eggs bouncing off his front door and rumors about his sexual orientation made life miserable. As Westbrook, 35, began giving a tour of the mixed-martial arts training facility, he was downright gleeful. Funny, but the writer and photographer he guided are members of the media, a group Westbrook collectively despised when he was playing wide receiver for the Washington Redskins and failing to live up to the lofty expectations that came with being the fourth overall pick in the 1995 draft.
