Josh Koscheck Says He Would Accept TUF 12 Coaching Job
(mmaweekly.com)
Going home again. That could be the theme of “The "Ultimate Fighter Season 12” for Josh Koscheck if he is indeed chosen as a coach for the next season of the popular Spike TV reality show. The American Kickboxing Academy welterweight got his start on the show five years ago, and if rumors stand true, the winner of the upcoming fight between Koscheck and British fighter Paul Daley could determine who will coach opposite UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

UFC's Tito Ortiz denies wrongdoing, accuses Jenna Jameson of OxyContin abuse
(mmajunkie.com)
First of all anything being posted is just speculation. Nothing is a fact yet. I'm just posting this because the news is important and it can determine a fighters life and career. Just keep that in mind when leaving comments. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz called a press conference in North Hollywood, Calif., Monday night and said an alleged domestic abuse incident with longtime girlfriend Jenna Jameson was prompted by Jameson's addiction to the prescription opiate OxyContin. "Unfortunately, Jenna relapsed this morning and suffered the consequences of that," Chip Matthews, Ortiz's personal lawyer, said at the press conference. "We're here because Tito was trying to help her." Ortiz denied harming Jameson during the incident, which allegedly took place Monday morning at the couple's home in Huntington Beach, Calif.

Are UFC-WEC joint shows on the horizon? Dana White says he has "long-term gameplan"
(mmajunkie.com)
This past Saturday's "WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber" event benefited from a promotional push from its sister promotion – the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

But what about a next step in the UFC-WEC relationship? Could we ever see UFC and WEC fighters competing on the same card? Full Article

M-1's Finkelchtein addresses Boon's "rubbish," apologizes for Overeem comments
(mmajunkie.com)
While U.S. mixed martial arts fans may not be extremely familiar with the figures involved, the rivalry between M-1 Global president Vadim Finkelchtein and Golden Glory co-owner Bas Boon is nothing new. Quite the contrary, the two have traded verbal jabs since the heyday of PRIDE, and neither is much a fan of the other. But recently those jabs turned into knockout punches as Boon took to the Internet with an open letter that accused M-1 Global of ties to organized crime, death threats and patently avoiding a fight for its chief client, Fedor Emelianenko.

Dana White says Showtime runs Strikeforce, not Scott Coker; won't be worried about Strikeforce when they're off CBS

I'm telling you, man, I'm the one out there, hitting the pavement, beating the bricks, talking to all these guys. They don't know (crap) and they don't want to know (crap). They don't care... They (Strikeforce) are going to go away. Showtime (messed) that whole thing up. They'll go away. They'll be off CBS and I won't have to worry about them being so, you know, out in front. When something like that happens on CBS, people are going to hear about it. If they end up staying with (crappy)-ass Showtime, 200,000 people see it. I can live with that... Full Article

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?
