Heath Herring starts fight promotion in Argentina
(mmafighting.com)
For the last five years, it’s become increasingly hard to tell Heath Herring from a red herring. The "Texas Crazy Horse" spent a dozen years in the cage facing the full scroll of heavyweight giants in Pride and the UFC before a vague contract dispute with the latter sort of sent him off like a tumbleweed down the 101 freeway towards Hollywood. Since that night five years ago in Minneapolis, back when he was bull-rushed and battered by Brock Lesnar at UFC 87, he has been cast as the prototypical bad guy in every kind of B-film known to never touch the silver screen. He went onto the World Series poker circuit, and ebbed and flowed with the cards that came down the river. He became a stuntman...

Joe Rogan Blasts 10 Point Must System In MMA
(bjpenn.com)
“Scoring is very flawed. It’s flawed in a bunch of different ways. The biggest reason it’s flawed is because of the 10-Point Must system which was adopted from boxing. That might work in a 12-round fight. 12, three minute rounds is very different than three, five minute rounds. Three, five minute rounds, you’re going 10-9 on rounds that either guy could win and then the next round a guy could get taken down, busted up, dropped, and you score that a 10-9 as well. That makes no f—ing sense. The system in place right now, the scoring system, is from boxing and they need to develop one just for MMA. “The (athletic commissions) don’t do s—. It’s the same reason this C.J. Ross lady is still a f—ng judge, or was a judge, until she stepped down. The athletic commissions do a woefully inadequate job on several levels. The UFC can’t dictate who judges. the UFC can’t dictate who referees. The UFC can’t dictate what the rules are. They can’t do anything. They can work with the commission to try to give suggestions and come up with ways around problems, but ultimately it’s the job of the athletic commission.”

In search for life after fighting, Danny Downes remakes himself as an MMA writer
(mmajunkie.com)
Danny Downes got the news in a text message. He'd been expecting it, and he thought he was ready for it, but he thought wrong. This was the fall of 2011, a little more than a month after his second loss in as many attempts with the UFC. Before that he'd gone 1-1 in the WEC, beating the much-hyped Chinese import Tiequan Zhang via unanimous decision in the organization's final event. But 0-2 in the UFC? "Danny Boy" could do the math. He knew he was likely on the chopping block, but the UFC's upcoming event in his hometown of Chicago that January gave him some faint hope. Maybe they'd keep him around for that. Maybe he'd get one more chance. Then he saw the text from his manager...

Eddie Alvarez says new Bellator deal is ‘fair enough'
(mmafighting.com)
Eight months of anger, resentment and legal roadblocks came to a tidy conclusion last week when former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez reached a settlement with the promotion that built him into a star then threatened to cage his livelihood away for years in the courts.

But nonetheless, Alvarez now is scheduled to rematch Michael Chandler in the co-main event of Bellator's inaugural pay-per-view, providing a cordial end to his rocky year...
