Dana White co-signs Ronda Rousey, says Cyborg Justino once looked like 'Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels'
(mmafighting.com)
There are a number of topics unrelated to any particular UFC event that still manage to crawl into and embed themselves as the key signpost of conversation. At the post-media day scrum with UFC President Dana White on Thursday, the seemingly perennial issue of Ronda Rousey fueding through the media with former Strikeforce women's featherweight champion Cyborg Justino filled just that role.

Pat Barry announces leave from MMA, release from UFC contract
(mmajunkie.com)
After long discussions with our client Pat Barry over the recent weeks, he has come to the decision that he will be taking an indefinite leave from competing in MMA. The UFC and Zuffa have been very gracious in releasing him from his contract and Pat is very grateful for everything they have done for him and his career. “Over the past few fights I’ve just had this sinking feeling in my stomach whenever I have stepped into the Octagon and I realize, I DONT WANT TO WRESTLE. Not saying I will never do MMA again, but right now I just want to hit people. MMA and the UFC have been great to me and I will always support the company and the sport. I want to thank all my fans, sponsors and haters for being with me on this journey and I look forward to what future holds.” – HD! “Pat and I have talked about this for a while now and with recent changes in the landscape of combat sports, he wants to explore some options and try to get back to his roots. He’s going to take a little time to clear his head and then we will explore our options. We will keep you posted on things as they develop.” – Brian Butler

MMA fighter Joe Camacho Dies
(mmafrenzy.com)
Kind of crazy, but this is going to start happening as our sports fighter's age. Not that 43 is a reasonable age for a heart attack mind you. Guy was a true journeyman of the sport. Launched several careers in the Cali MMA scene, but never made it himself. Always down for a fight though.

Ronda Rousey doesn’t give a damn about her bad reputation
(mmafighting.com)
What happened to Ronda Rousey, the person of multitudes? Before she took the coaching stint on The Ultimate Fighter 18, it felt as though she could literally do no wrong. Rousey was the first women’s UFC champion. She was on glossy magazine covers and became the apple of many media outlet’s eye. There were movie roles to mull over, and sponsors, and television appearances -- the basic spoils of sudden stardom, which she coyly embraced. I called her the Royce Gracie of women’s MMA before she fought Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, because it felt like she was pioneering a movement for future generations. Then she showed up to Vegas and, instead of finding Cat Zingano, whom she was supposed to spend the next six weeks with, there was Miesha Tate, her arch-nemesis with batting eyes like the purring cat that swallowed the canary. This somewhat sadistic -- and perhaps unfair -- surprise was all it took to curdle the milk...

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.”
