Roy Jones Jr. accepts Anderson Silva's challenge
(mmamania.com)
It was years ago when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight titleholder Anderson Silva first expressed interest in crossing over to the boxing ring to challenge former world champion Roy Jones Jr. "The Spider" has a couple of professional boxing fights under his belt and despite his one-of-a-kind accomplishments in mixed martial arts (MMA), jumping over to face one of the best boxers ever was viewed as a pipedream. Silva's interest in fighting Jones Jr. --at least in the public eye-- died down over the next few years. That is until the Brazilian rehashed the subject in a recent interview with the New York Post. ""I think everyone's got something they're focused on and that's my own desire, something I'd like to do," said Silva. "Maybe one day when I'm done my UFC career, I will box Roy Jones."

Wrestling getting an MMA-inspired makeover
(mmajunkie.com)
NEW YORK – In its push to keep their sport in the Olympics, wrestling will get a makeover, the acting president of the sport's world governing body said Tuesday. So say goodbye to singlets and hello to shirtless Greco-Roman wrestlers. The stage too could change – why be limited by a boring square mat? Taking the lead from the MMA world, wrestling is thinking big and bold when it comes to showmanship. Incorporating staged weigh-ins, walk-out music, lighting, visual effects and video screen replays are all being discussed.

Chavez Jr. receives $900K fine and 9 month suspension from NSAC
(boxingnews24.com)
By Dan Ambrose: Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32 KO’s) was really smacked around today in his hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission to determine his case for his positive marijuana test from his last fight against Sergio Martinez last year on September 15h. Chavez Jr. basically threw himself on the mercy of the Commission. He had no real concrete reasons why he chose to use marijuana in the weeks before his fight with Martinez. The only thing Chavez Jr. could say is he smoked in nine days before the fight in order to relieve stress.

(punchdrunkgamer.com)
In my opinion, the IOC can go fuck themselves!

Wrestling was left in a state of shock after the International Olympic Committee made a surprise recommendation on Tuesday morning to drop the sport from the 2020 Games. Contested in the first modern Olympics in 1896 and part of the ancient Games in Olympia, wrestling will now join seven other candidate sports battling for one spot in the games. In this exclusive interview from our partners at Takedown Radio, old school UFC veteran and Gold Medalist in Freestyle wrestling at the 1992 Summer Olympic Games, Kevin Jackson discusses the International Olympic Committee’s decision and the impact it could have on the sport of wrestling.

ONE FC's Ole Laursen returns to kickboxing against top ranked Giorgio Petrosyan this March
(bloodyelbow.com)
This March, one of Asia's biggest MMA stars in Ole Laursen makes his kickboxing return against one of the best in the sport, in Giorgio Petrosyan. Earlier this year, Ole Laursen notched the biggest win of his MMA career after a highly entertaining back and forth war against Eduard Folayang. Unfortunately, the ONE FC star wasn't able to follow up on that instant classic, and has been on the shelf for quite some time now. The Filipino-Danish fighter has already booked his next fight, but it looks like it won't be in Mixed Martial Arts. The former Muay Thai champ announced that on March, which is roughly a year since his last ONE FC bout, he will be getting off the bench and will be making a return to his kickboxing roots.
