Boxer Adrien Broner on MMA: ‘I really don’t look at it as a real sport’
(bjpenn.com)
“I’m really not too big on MMA,” said Broner. “I really don’t look at it as a real sport because anybody can come into MMA and learn that. You can learn that. Listen, you can’t just come in to boxing and be a world champion. You’ve got to be born with it.” “Like you,” he said to the interviewer. “Right now, you can go into MMA, learn all the submission moves and be a world champion. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. I don’t give a f— what you do, you can try to come over to boxing, and you won’t ever be a world champion. I’m not disrespecting you, but I’m just saying, that’s how it works.”

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.
