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.

- CAMP REPORT: TEAM SITYDOTONG
(mmaweekly.com)
I'd bet my modest bankroll that this is where they have the Boston TUF tryouts that are supposed to take place. It is right in Somerville on the edge of Beantown and this camp has been getting tons of 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.

The coroner’s report from GracieMag.com:

A little over two months since the death of Ryan Gracie, on December 15, the first toxicology report on the black belt’s death was released yesterday by the program Fantastico, on Brazilian television. According to the program, the document stated that Ryan’s death was not of natural causes. Listed in the report, therapeutic doses of the medicines midasolan, alprazolan, prometazina, clozapina, haloperidol and the fighter had already used intoxicating substances. Based on analysis of the report, the authorities will determine what caused Ryan Gracie’s death. Cardiorespiratory failure seems to be the most probable cause.

Tarded Reality Show Concept of the Day, Part 2
(cagepotato.com)
You think Fighting Fedor is a bad idea? Ho, baby. From a new press release on Reuters.com: Rodrigo and Crosley Gracie have decided to co-produce a reality television show of mixed martial arts, combined with the Gracie Jiu Jitsu flavor, and a little drama. [Ed. note: Rodrigo and Crosley are cousins, and grandsons of Carlos Gracie.]

The reality show is based on true life grudges. Imagine a famous face knocking on your door. He/she shows you a photo. “Do you know who this is?” You know exactly who it is. He/she is the person with whom you have a grudge to settle. Then, without a clue as to where you are going, you are whisked off to an undisclosed location where you will be trained by one of the world famous Gracie Jiu Jitsu family members. Did you know that the person in the photo is also receiving the same treatment? Did you know that now is the chance to “Settle Your Grudge?” “It gives me great pleasure to bring this show to you, despite any controversy that may arise. At the end of the day, we are all humans, we’ve all had grudges, and they all need to be settled to bring closure to real the life drama that leaves us perplexed every day” boasts [executive producer] Stacey “O”. Episodes in production include: Cop vs. Con; Bouncer vs. Bounced; Biker vs. Nerd; Husband vs. x-Boyfriend; Manager vs. Employee; Old Bully vs. the Bullied; Teacher vs. Student; and Old vs. Young.

Nogueira's trainer: Sylvia Cheated
(mmafightline.com)
Luiz Alves, the muy thai trainer for Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, was recently interviewed by the Brazilian news site tatame.com and has made some interesting remarks concerning “Big Nog’s” recent victory over Tim Sylvia. Alvez made the claim during his interview that “the Americans” were using baby cream which would not become slippery until it came in contact with sweat If his claims are valid it will be interesting to see what course of action the UFC will take to punish this sort of behavior, or to prevent this sort of foul from being committed in the future.
