(mmafighting.com)
Kinberly Novaes was expected to make her RFA debut next week against Jocelyn Jones Lybarger, but won’t be able to step inside the cage. The Brazilian strawweight had some trouble cutting weight as soon as she signed her bout agreement to fight on Aug. 21, and eventually found out that she’s six months pregnant. When she did the math, Novaes realized she fought and won a MMA fight in Brazil while pregnant. She’s having a boy.

Scott Coker agrees with fighters regarding the Ali Act in MMA: "I think it's a pretty good idea"
(bloodyelbow.com)
The never-ending conflict in mixed martial arts between management and labor, or should we say between promoters and fighters, has really come to the fore this year. Over the last few months an antitrust lawsuit, the new Reebok deal, and the USADA testing policy have sparked debates on fighter pay, lost sponsorship income, and lack of input from the athletes on the rules and regulations governing them. And this is in only in the UFC, never mind the number of complaints that one sees directed at other promotions. All of this has had led to discussions of possible solutions, including perhaps the most serious talk of a fighters association the sport has seen to date.

WSOF bantamweight champ Marlon Moraes open to fights at 145 – or even 155
(mmajunkie.com)
“If (WSOF matchmaker Ali Abdelaziz and president Ray Sefo) come to me and say, ‘Marlon, you want to do a superfight,’ I would be able to,” he said. WSOF has some solid champions in those divisions: featherweight Lance Palmer (10-1) and lightweight Justin Gaethje (14-0). The organization doesn’t have a flyweight champion, but that doesn’t seem to matter. “(I’d do) 145, 155 – but not 125,” Moraes said with a laugh.

At the annual Convention of the Association of Boxing Commissions in San Diego, Wanderlei Silva and a host of ex-UFC fighters made a push for a Muhammad Ali act in the sport of MMA. The last few years have really brought the idea of a possible union of MMA fighters into the forefront.
