The 25 Toughest Athletes (w/ 2 faces you might recognize)
(sportsillustrated.cnn.com)
Let's start a barroom argument. Who are the toughest athletes in sports? Well, hang on a second. How do you define tough? The ability to take and deliver a shot or ten? To play hurt and still play well? The utter refusal to give in to pressure, circumstance, or more physically imposing foe? To dominate one's opponents or even one's sport? How about the ability to overcome serious personal setbacks, such as a dire injury or illness, and return to the highest level of performance? How about sheer longevity in a punishing, demanding game? We've considered all of those things while sorting through long lists of worthy candidates. Our Top 25 (in order, says us) contains some surprising choices. We've also put together a list of current notables in the four major pro sports and a photo gallery of the greatest old school toughs -- legends who are no longer active, surely to the relief of their beleaguered foes.

Rooney gets the most out of MMA fighters
(sports.espn.go.com)
Just holding a black belt in jiu-jitsu will no longer cut it in mixed martial arts. A solid amateur wrestler background won't get the job done, either. MMA has evolved into a more complex sport. Physical skills and technical know-how might get a fighter into the game, but it won't take him to the top.

LEONARD GARCIA ARRESTED IN TEXAS
(mmaweekly.com)
Current World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight Leonard Garcia was arrested on Tuesday in connection with an investigation into an alleged drug trafficking ring, according to a report by KCBD in Lubbock, Tex. Garcia was arrested for his alleged connection with the cocaine ring. When contacted for comment, Garcia’s manager, Sven Bean said, “It was a shock to me. It definitely came out of left field. I’ve talked with his family and I’ve had one phone conversation with his lawyer. We’re just letting him do his job at this point. Hopefully, we’ll know more as the days progress.” According to the report, authorities arrested a total of 13 suspects after a four-year investigation into the drug ring that allegedly ran from El Paso to Hub City. The report specifically named Garcia, identifying him as a mixed martial artist and Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran. None of the other suspects were identified in the report. If convicted, three of the suspects could face up to 40 years in prison and a $2 million fine, while the others arrested could face life in prison and up to a $4 million dollar fine.

Arbitration hearing lifts curtain on backstage world of the UFC
(canadianpress.google.com)
A contract offer scrawled on a blue Post-it note. A disgruntled fighter. A manager whose cut is one-third. A powerful promoter in hardball negotiations to tie up a young heavyweight star. The California State Athletic Commission arbitration hearing into the dispute between mixed martial arts heavyweight Brandon (The Truth) Vera and his former manager, Mark Dion, lifts a corner of the curtain on the backstage world of the UFC. The San Diego hearing came about as a result of Vera's desire to get out of his management contract with Dion because he was irate at an alleged misrepresentation of a UFC signing bonus. This week, Dion posted the 135-page transcript of the arbitration hearing on his website, as well as the arbitrator's ruling and a slew of exhibit documents. Privately owned by billionaire brothers Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta and outspoken president Dana White, the UFC does not like talking money. But the Vera hearing sheds some light on UFC contract negotiations, suggesting that the battles outside the cage can be just as hard-nosed.

Zombie Strippers: Tito Ortiz and girlfriend Jenna Jameson to appear in movie
(mmamania.com)
The self-proclaimed power couple is at it again. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz and his girlfriend Jenna Jameson are set to appear in a new movie dubbed, “Zombie Strippers,” which is “coming soon to DVD.” That’s never a good sign. Ortiz plays a bouncer at an underground Nebraska strip club that is tainted with a virus that turns its talent into reanimated corpses. And, unsurprisingly, Jameson is one of the infected strippers (no pun intended, seriously). Check out the video trailer after the jump. (And i seriously suggest you do!)

Matt Linland To Enter Oregon Politcal Race
(mmajunkie.com)
Matt Lindlnd's resume is impressive: a 20-5 career MMA record, former UFC middleweight contender, International Fight League coach, Olympic silver medalist, two-time Pan-American champion. However, the 37-year-old Northwest-based fighter could add an all-together-different gig to his list of accomplishments: Oregon state represenative. Lindland has entered the Oregon political race, filing on Tuesday's deadline day, for a State House of Representatives seat, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Kim Couture To Make MMA Debut April 5
(sports.yahoo.com)
Kim Couture is set to make her MMA debut on April 5 in Chael Sonnen’s fight promotion, the Full Contact Fighting Federation. Her opponent, Jessica Cruz, will also be making her MMA debut. While this isn't exactly huge news, I thought some people may be interested. I've read on a few forums that people say she is not interested in moving into MMA so here's the proof that she is. Considering what she showed in her smoker fight, this could turn out badly. By the way, If this has been posted before then I apologize. I used the search feature and nothing came up so I decided to go ahead and post it.
