DDP, Sinosic, Shamrock, Baroni, Varner and more give UFC 159 Predictions
(punchdrunkgamer.com)

Muhsin Corbbrey (15-7-2 MMA, Pro Boxer, Kickboxer and ESPN Asia Veteran) - “Jon Jones wins this fight via superior athletics and skill, I think it’ll make it to the third round and Sonnen may even get him down early via the takedown. But I think ‘Bones’ stops him with strikes in the 3rd.” Jamie Varner (21-7-1-2, former WEC Lightweight Champion) - “Jones wins even though I am a Sonnen fan.” Shayna Baszler (15-8, FCF Women’s Bantamweight Grand Prix Champion) – “Instead of analyzing this with rational and all that, I’m totally fanning out and cheering for Chael!!” Frank Shamrock (23-10-2, Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, WEC Light Heavyweight Champion & Strikeforce Middleweight Champion) – “Bones Jones wins via TKO, then Sonnen retires and works on FOX telecast.”

Fresh off sweep, Team Alpha Male's Duane Ludwig enjoying life more as trainer than fighter
(mmafighting.com)
It should have been a given that Duane Ludwig would get quick results. His nickname, after all, is "Bang," a moniker he earned even before his record-setting, six-second knockout in 2006. As a trainer, he's made immediate strides with his new camp, the Sacramento, California-based Team Alpha Male. Hired in December 2012, Ludwig recently went through the process of training several charges for the first full camp, including a trio that prepared for fights at last weekend's UFC on FOX 7. The result? Three first-round TKOs predicated on strikes...

UFC Victory Under His Belt, Popular Irishman Conor McGregor is Now Shipping Up to Boston
(mmaweekly.com)
Irishman Conor McGregor went from collecting a little less than $250 per week to being paid thousands for fighting in the UFC, and now he’s shipping up to Boston. UFC president Dana White – who prior to a recent trip to Ireland knew little of McGregor – said the Irishman went a long way towards securing a spot on the UFC’s next trip to Boston, which kicks off the launch of Fox Sports 1 on Aug. 17. McGregor’s knockout of Marcus Brimage at 1:07 of their fight in Sweden on Saturday certainly won his UFC boss over. “The answer is yes,” answered White, prior to the question even being posed. “You’re gonna ask if we’re gonna put McGregor on (the Boston) card...

Nick Lembo explains regulatory challenges WSOF faced before second event
(mmafighting.com)
Without federal regulations, mixed martial arts promoters are forced to abide by guidelines that often vary both in type and size as they hold events in different states. The World Series of Fighting (WSOF) ran headlong into this particular challenge as they held their second show overall and first in New Jersey on Saturday evening at Revel Resort and Casino in Atlantic City. As it turns out, the show came close to never happening. Aside from complications prior to the weigh-ins, the organization failed to comply with state regulations as it pertains to creating a complete, safe cage. In short, WSOF initially provided both a canvas and cage pads too small for their own cage. Bloody Elbow was the first to report the news...

Kongo Respects Nelson for lack of Steroids
(punchdrunkgamer.com)

PDG: You have stirred up some controversy as of late with some of your comments on Steroids and TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy). What is your opinion of fighters using TRT and in your eyes is it any different than using illegal supplements? Cheick Kongo: I don’t agree with TRT usage in sports in general. The main problem with TRT is that most of the users (not just in mixed martial arts), only need it because they used steroids in the past, and it’s not fair. This is what I think. I am a fighter, not a cheater. I am clean, I expect my opponent to be clean too. That’s one of the reason I respect Roy Nelson.
