Nate Marquardt, BAMMA Sever Ties; Former UFC Contender Now a Free Agent
Nate Marquardt's run in BAMMA has come to an end before it ever really started. According to Marquardt's manager Lex McMahon, the UK-based BAMMA has agreed to release Marquardt from his contract following the organization's decision to delay their ninth event from Feb. 11 to March 24. Marquardt was scheduled to fight Yoshiyuki Yoshida in the main event of BAMMA 9 for the organization's welterweight title.

Kim Couture: "I know that Randy is the hardest working person I know."
In a recent interview Kim commented on Randy and his work ethic: "I know that Randy is the hardest working person I know." and the state of MMA fighters today: "it seems more guys today are looking to win points once they have the belt than finish fights and I think that’s cheap. It’s cheap to the fans and themselves."

ONE FC 2: Eric Kelly vs. Bae Young Kwon Round Out the Main Card
ONE Fighting Championship just officially announced the main card for their 2nd event this February. Most of the bouts listed were already mentioned on my last report on the fight card, but there's one match that slipped through the cracks. That bout, a co-headliner between URCC Champion, Eric Kelly (6-0), and Bae Young Kwon (6-2) of Korea. The Filipino fighter in Kelly, is considered as one of the best featherweights in the region. He is coming off a very impressive win over Mitch Chilson on the inaugural ONE FC event, and while also dangerous on his feet, he has finished all six of his fights by submission. He will be taking on the very dangerous Kwon, a Road FC contender who defeated Brian Choi of Evolve MMA last month

30-year old Japanese fighter Tomoya Miyashita dies of Leukemia on NYE
Very sad & discouraging to hear the news about 30-year old DEEP fighter Tomoya Miyashita dying on New Year’s Eve. He had fought one round of cancer (seminoma) and then was diagnosed with leukemia and lost the battle. He had a personal (Japanese language) blog online at Ameba where he commented on his struggles and also posted pictures of those in the fight community who came to visit with him.

Rolles Gracie vs Bob Sapp Confirmed for ONE FC 2, Top Russian Fighter Rustam Khabilov Also Added to Card
Numerous sources today confirmed that a heavyweight fight between Bob Sapp and Rolles Gracie (pictured above) has been added to the card for ONE FC 2 which is taking place in Jakarta on February 11th. Gracie has a 5-1 professional record with his sole loss coming on a disappointing UFC debut when his cardio looked extremely questionable. Hopefully he has learned from that experience because he still has the potential to be one of the top heavyweights in the world and will be a strong favourite against K-1, Pride and Dream veteran Bob Sapp who weighed an incredible 350 lbs for his last fight

Gilbert Yvel is ready for his light-heavyweight debut tonight
Over the course of Gilbert "The Hurricane" Yvel's nearly 15-year professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) career, he has plied his trade all over the world, in just about every premier organization, against some of the greatest and biggest fighters in MMA history. Yvel has 54 fights to his credit and is a veteran fighter of the UFC, PRIDE, Affliction, M-1, and K-1. What is even more impressive is that Yvel has won two-thirds of his bouts despite competing throughout his career as an undersized heavyweight. In a weight class that has a weight limit of 265-pounds or in some cases, no weight limit at all, Yvel has usually tipped the scales around 240-pounds against much larger men. This situation, sometimes leads fighters in his predicament to pack on unnecessary weight in an attempt to help close the weight difference between themself and their much bigger opponents. This decision, however, usually slows down the naturally smaller heavyweights and takes away from their cardio, so Yvel decided to take a much more drastic and effective approach by dropping down to the light-heavyweight (205-pound) weight division.
