Thales Leites joins Maximum Fighting Championships
The detractors have said their piece — now it’s time to prove them wrong. That is the sentiment coming from the camp of Thales Leites, who has officially signed on to join the middleweight ranks in the Maximum Fighting Championship. In all likelihood, the standout Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace will make his debut with the organization at MFC 23: Unstoppable on Dec. 4 – quite possibly against another top-ranked title contender, Bryan Baker.

Yves Edwards TKOs fellow 50-fight vet Kyle Jensen at weekend Raging Wolf event
After back-to-back losses and a 4-7 record from 2005 to mid-2008, UFC and PRIDE veteran Yves Edwards was worried that his once-dominant reputation would be spoiled upon his exit from the fight game. This past weekend, though, the 33-year-old Edwards (36-15-1) continued his comeback and picked up his second straight victory with a first-round TKO win over fellow 50-fight veteran and former WEC fighter Kyle Jensen (39-11-2). The bout headlined Raging Wolf's fifth event, "Mayhem in the Mist," a pro-am card at the Seneca Niagara Casino Events Center, which is part of the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in New York.

Gunderson Returns After Controversal Win
"When John “Quick Guns” Gunderson faced off against Fabian Acuna for the Ring of Fire lightweight title this past August, no one could have anticipated the eventual outcome of the fight. Half way through the first round Gunderson attempted to secure a submission. Acuna yelped in pain, causing the referee to stop the fight thinking that Acuna had verbally submitted, giving Gunderson the win"

Easton-Beebe Changed to 'No Decision'
"The main event had just gone the distance, and promoter Marcello Foran entered the cage holding his promotion’s bantamweight title belt. He approached former WEC champion Chase Beebe, of Chicago, who looked to have just taken, at the very least, three of five rounds against champion and hometown favorite Mike Easton at UWC 7 Saturday in Fairfax, Va." Such a surprise.

Overeem Facing Tony Sylvster, Not Sam Hoger, At 10/17 Golden Glory Event
Despite prior reports that Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem would face former UFC fighter Sam Hoger at Golden Glory's 10/17 event, the promotion has ultimately chosen Tony Sylvster to face Overeem instead. If Overeem wins he could defend his title against Fedor in early 2010 pending Fedor beating Brett Rogers, but Overeem can't overlook Sylvster-he's 8-1 over the last 4 years with the only loss being to Chris Tuchscherer.

MFC Champ Antonio McKee: 'I'm the Best Wrestler in MMA'
Antonio McKee has been known to fight a methodical (safe) style due to small paydays, but now that there's more money involved, he plans on shedding his reputation of decisions at Friday's MFC 22 against Carlo Prater in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. "You're going to get a standup war in this fight," said McKee, who has been undefeated since a 2003 decision loss to Karo Parisyan. "If I lose this fight it's because I stood up and I tried to bang and I got caught." In this exclusive interview with FanHouse, McKee explains his safe fighting style in the past that sacrificed entertainment, and why he believes there is no lightweight out there that can beat him – including UFC champ BJ Penn.
