(mmajunkie.com)
The lineup for next month’s WSOF 34 event continues to take shape. Officials today announced Josh Copeland (13-4) has suffered a knee injury and been forced out of his bout with former heavyweight champion Smealinho Rama (9-2). Kevin Ray Sears (4-2) has stepped in as a replacement. In addition to the heavyweight change, officials today announced four vets are scheduled for bouts as part of the organization’s “Who’s The Toughest?” program, which gives military personnel a chance to compete for the promotion. Those matchups include U.S. Marine Corps veterans Shane Kruchten (11-4) vs. Jeremy Mahon (5-4) in a 150-pound catchweight bout, former Marine Brandon Collins (3-2) vs. fellow light heavyweight Chris Morgan (0-0), and former U.S. Army ranger Nicholi Navarro (3-1) vs. lightweight Alan Gutierrez (2-0).

MMA legend outspoken about televised children's MMA fights
(sports.yahoo.com)
Ramzan Kadyrov, the Moscow-backed leader of the Russian republic of Chechnya, is receiving heavy criticism after video surfaced of his three young sons competing in a mixed martial arts event on the eve of his 40th birthday. While having his sons fight wouldn’t sound like such a bad idea if the boys were young adults, the fact that the oldest of the Kadyrov sons is only 10 years old is the reason why so much attention has been brought to the event. Akhmad (10) defeated another boy via technical knockout in what was described as an exhibition fight on a nationally televised card earlier this week. Akhmad’s younger brothers, 9-year-old Eli and 8-year-old Adam, also won their fights in front a rabid crowd of adults on hand at the Grand Prix Akhmat 2016 international tournament in Chechnya’s capital of Grozny.

Chael Sonnen vs. Tito Ortiz set for Bellator event in January 2017
(mmamania.com)
Let the "legends ass kicking tour" commence. Fight fans have been waiting for an announced opponent ever since Chael Sonnen ended his retirement by signing with Bellator MMA. The self-proclaimed "Bad Guy" wasted no time calling out the "Bad Boy" himself in Tito Ortiz. Luckily for fight fans, the legendary mixed martial arts (MMA) trashtalkers will square off early next year, per a news break by Ortiz himself on AXS TV's Inside MMA. At a location yet to be determined, "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" and the "American Gangster" will throw down next January in what will presumably be the main event of a "tent pole" Bellator event.

Tito Ortiz refuses to fight 'weak' Chael Sonnen in November: I'm calling the shots, not him
(mmamania.com)
"The American Gangster" promised to wreck anyone and everyone willing to compete this November. That includes former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz. Unfortunately for Sonnen, "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" did not share his grand vision. From Submission Radio: "Chael calling me out on November 2nd? I'm the one who calls the shots, not him! We'll fight in January. We're not going to fight in November. I'm gonna give him some time to get used to being at his weight, off of steroids, so he can train through that time. November 17th is not happening. I'm calling the shots, not Chael Sonnen. Yeah he talks well, yeah he does his thing, but no, this is my weight class. I'm the one who calls the shots. Tito Ortiz is gonna call the shots."

Mizuki Inoue tears ACL, out of running for Invicta title fight against Angela Hill
(mmafighting.com)
One of the best prospects in women's MMA is going to be out for a while. Mizuki Inoue tore her ACL recently and will require surgery, sources told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani. Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp confirmed the information and said Inoue was on the short list of potential next challengers for Angela Hill's strawweight title. Typically, an athlete will need around one year to recover from ACL surgery. It's unclear if there's any kind of loose timetable for Inoue's return.

Invicta strips Barb Honchak of flyweight title, forgets to tell her
(bloodyelbow.com)
The decision to strip Barb Honchak of the Invicta flyweight title wasn’t a bad one. How the promotion decided to go about it, on the other hand, was pretty poor. Honchak herself confirmed that she had only seen the news online, and had not been informed by the promotion. In a statement delivered through Squor.com, Honchak gave her thoughts on no longer being the flyweight champion: “I understand that Invicta would want to take the "interm" off the title since I have been out for an extended amount of time. But, I would have like the opportunity to relinquish and I would have like to have known by means other than Twitter.” In the meantime, tonight’s interim title fight between Jennifer Maia and Roxanne Modafferi will now be for the undisputed Invicta flyweight championship. That fight headlines the promotion’s September 23rd card, along with an atomweight title defense for Ayaka Hamasaki against Jinh Yu Frey, in Kansas City, Missouri. The full event will be broadcast live on Fight Pass.
