Kim Couture talks AFL contract, Friday's pro debut, former feud with Matt Hughes
(mmajunkie.com)
Kim Couture will make her professional MMA debut Friday at a combination boxing-MMA show -- one that's expected to draw approximately 18,000 spectators at UNLV's Thomas & Mack Center. After that, though, the pro MMA rookie and Vice President of Xtreme Couture isn't sure what the future holds. However, Couture today told TAGG Radio (www.mmajunkie.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), that she's been in talks with Strikeforce about a possible deal, and that the Kentucky-based American Fight League has offered a lucrative contract. "I've spoken to Strikeforce, and actually, I'm looking at the American Fight League right now," said Couture, who guest-hosted the show. "Tara LaRosa just signed with them. I made that introduction happen. These guys have a lot of money. They're coming from the right place."

Dream LW GP Semi-finals and Finals to be held in one night
(mmajunkie.com)
Sorry if it's old news. DREAM.5 will feature the organization's lightweight grand prix semifinals, and the match-ups include Shinya Aoki (16-2) vs. Caol Uno (25-10-4) and Eddie Alvarez (14-1) vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri (22-4-2). The Japanese-based organization announced the match-ups on Sunday during its DREAM.4 event. Unlike former rounds of the tournament, both the semifinals and finals will take place during the July 21 event, meaning the finalists will fight twice in one night.

Nick Diaz goes off about everything
(punch.freedomblogging.com)
“Before we get started, I want to say that I know there are a lot of people and everybody is trying to protect the sport. And everybody wants to be sportsmen and that type of thing where everybody shakes hands and everybody is great friends and whatever. And that’s great. But you know what, this sport is (expletive) established. That’s obvious. There are people out there doing a great job making it look like a non-violent sport. That’s not my job. My job is warfare. I’m over here to (expletive) kill. We’re mortal enemies until we fight and then we can shake hands and be cool. But until then, if I’m signed to fight you I don’t (expletive) like you and I hate you’re (expletive) guts and we’re fighting until we’re cool. We’re not cool until I win or I lose and we can settle this. So that’s how I am about this sort of thing."

Affliction hoping for big burst on MMA scene
(mmajunkie.com)
He doesn't so much as have a promoter's license yet, but Tom Atencio has already got the shtick down. He's about a month away from promoting his first mixed martial arts card, but he's already touting it as the best in the history of the sport. That might be a stretch, though it's going to feature six of the world's elite heavyweights and enough of the world's finest fighters to hold the interest of even the most ardent MMA fans. And Atencio insists he's undaunted by the enormity of the task that lay ahead of Affliction before its July 19 debut card at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. He's got a card stacked with big – and expensive – names, elite heavyweights such as Fedor Emelianenko, Tim Sylvia, Andrei Arlovski, Josh Barnett, Ben Rothwell, Pedro Rizzo and Aleksander Emelianenko. That's a former PRIDE heavyweight champion and three ex-UFC heavyweight champs among that group, in case you're wondering. "If you are an MMA fan, even if you're just a casual fan, can you look at this card and not say you're dying to see it?" Atencio asks. No doubt. It's a must-see event, particularly since it brings Emelianenko back onto the world stage.

Fighter Salaries: The Problems With Revenue Linking
(mmapayout.com)
There exists a critical assumption within the business world that most of our theories rely on: the concept of rationality. A rational or "greedy" individual is said to prefer more than less and it is this preference that can be seen in all walks of life. Investors are expecting greater wealth generation, creditors want higher interest rates, buyers want a cheaper price, and sellers want more for their goods. The same can also be said for the relationship that exists between a firm and its employees; no matter how much you pay someone, they're always going to want more. This is human nature. This is rationality. Very, very interesting:

Affliction: Buying Into The Hype
(bloodyelbow.com)
It's one thing for fans to salivate in anticipation of the card Affliction is putting on in July. It's another for the people in charge of that company to mark out so hard for the fights they have that they ignore the reality of their situation. In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported Affliction's internal expectations: The promotion internally believes it can break even, even with a $4 million fighter payroll off a combination of a sellout live gate and 250,000 to 300,000 PPV buys. On the live gate issue, a sellout is extremely unlikely

(mmajunkie.com)
HOFFMAN ESTATES, ILL. – Adrenaline MMA fashioned its first show Saturday night at Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill., just outside of Chicago with fighters from various promotions and a wide range of skill level. "We want to be the Strikeforce of the Midwest and to do that, you have to bring the best Midwest fighters together," said Adrenaline CEO Monte Cox in assessing the show. "I was happy. How can you not like this set of fights? We had a little bit of everything."

A host of UFC, PRIDE and IFL veterans are also booked for the show.

NSAC: Vitor Belfort Must Pay
(bloodyelbow.com)
There's been much speculation -- led by Fightlinker -- that Vitor Belfort wouldn't be allowed to fight on the July 19th Affliction: Banned card unless he settles up with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Belfort got popped for drugging at PRIDE 32 and was hit with a $10,000 fine and a 9 month suspension. Six months later he was fighting in Cage Rage in the U.K. Not cool, Vitor. Turns out he never paid his fine either.

Vitor Belfort Added To Affliction
(mmamania.com)
Affliction has added former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort to its July 19 event, putting him in a matchup against fellow one-time UFC fighter Terry Martin. It's considered interesting he was added given he previously violated a drug suspension by fighting overseas during the suspension period, which could work against him when it comes to getting licensed.
