RFA signs UFC veteran and top bantamweight prospect to exclusive multi-fight deals
(prommanow.com)
The Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA) added two more names to its ever growing stable of fighters last week when it announced that it had signed both UFC veteran Tyson Griffin (15-6) and top bantamweight prospect Chris Holdsworth (3-0) to exclusive multi-fight contracts. Griffin, who signed a three-fight deal with the Nebraska based MMA promotion, is best known for his five year run in the UFC, which began in 2006. During that time, Griffin would earn wins over the likes of Clay Guida, Rafael dos Anjos and Manny Gamburyan before being cut from the organization late last year after going 1-4 in his last five bouts. Currently training at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Griffin is expected to return to the lightweight division following his brief stint at featherweight. RFA also announced that it had signed Chris Holdsworth to a four-fight deal. Holdsworth, who is a Marc Laimon jiu-jitsu black belt, has won all nine of his bouts (three professional and six amateur) within the first round.

(mmafighting.com)
One FC's has added star power to their next event, inking fights that include former UFC champions Andrei Arlovski and Jens Pulver, respectively. Arlovski will face Australian Soa Palelei, while Pulver is set to scrap with Eric Kelly. Palelei announced his fight on Twitter. The onetime UFC veteran has mostly fought in his home country over the last few years, amassing a seven-fight win streak since his last defeat. Palelei (17-3) has been defeated only a single time since his sole UFC bout, which came in 2007 when he lost to Eddie Sanchez. Since then, he's 9-1 with his only defeat coming at the hands of current Strikeforce champion Daniel Cormier. Arlovski (17-9) has won two straight, with back-to-back knockouts over Travis Fulton and Ray Lopez respectively, while fighting for the ProElite promotion. Multiple outlets have reported the Pulver-Kelly scrap, which the promotion has yet to officially confirm.

With mind finally focused on fighting, Anthony Johnson sees 205 pounds as fresh start
(mmajunkie.com)
Standing next to the 6-foot-2 Anthony Johnson, it's hard to believe the broad-shouldered slugger ever found a way to make it down to 170 pounds. And while his critics would immediately point to the four times Johnson has missed weight in his 15 professional bouts, "Rumble" isn't interested in arguing about the past. After electing to make the move to light heavyweight, Johnson insists he's happier than ever. The stress and worries that once accompanied his fighting career are gone, and at 28 years old, Johnson feels he's making a new start to his career.

Legacy FC 12 results: Hieron earns controversial submission, Drysdale remains unbeaten
(mmajunkie.com)
Longtime veteran Jay Hieron earned his first post-Bellator Fighting Championship victory, but it came in controversial fashion. After locking in a second-round head-and-arm choke over late replacement Romario Da Silva, Hieron squeezed until referee Kevin Hancock stepped in and waved off the fight. Unfortunately, Da Silva did not appear to be in any danger while offering up what appeared to be a "thumbs-up" signal and resisting the referee's tug of his arm. The bout served as the headliner of Legacy Fighting Championship 12, which took place Friday night at Houston's Arena Theater. The evening's main card aired on AXS TV (formerly HDNet).

Will Campuzano Plans to Punk Chad Robichaux, Take First Legacy FC Flyweight Belt
(mmaweekly.com)
Following back-to-back losses in the UFC, Will Campuzano figured it was time for a change. A year after receiving his release from the promotion, he’s dropped a weight class, resulting in two straight wins, with an opportunity for a third on Friday night at Legacy FC 12 in Houston. According to Campuzano, the move down to 125 pounds made sense because, “I was gaining too much weight. The night of the fight I was gaining 15-18 pounds, so it always played against me and was a disadvantage. “I’m definitely getting used to the weight cut now, and it’s a lot easier. It was really hard for me the first two times, but it’s not that bad this time. I feel real strong, and I was a fast 135er, but I’m even faster at 125.”

Rob Sinclair defends his Lightweight title against Andre Winner at BAMMA 10
(bamma.com)
This is mostly for the UK guys but this is a great fight. Should Sinclair win he will most likely secure himself a UFC contract. To be honest Winner isn't that far away from another shot himself. I personally can't wait to see this. Oh, the event is scheduled for Septemeber 15th for those of you who don't want to read through to find the date.

Featuring a battle between Will Campuzano and Chad Robichaux for Legacy FC's vacant flyweight title, Legacy Fighting Championship 12 takes place July 13 at Houston's Arena Theater. The evening's main card airs on AXS TV (formerly HDNet). Linderman looks to build on the strength of a two-fight win streak that includes a June victory over Mike Hayes for Cage Warriors Fighting Championship's heavyweight title. Linderman previously fought at light heavyweight and made it to the semifinals of Bellator Fighting Championships' season-four light heavyweight tournament before losing a split decision to Richard Hale.

One FC’ s Zorobabel Moreira Explains Soccer Kick Finish of Roger Huerta
(mmaweekly.com)
If you didn’t know the name Zorobabel Moreira prior to last weekend’s One FC event, you probably remember him now after his vicious soccer kick knockout win over Roger Huerta. Moreira took the fight on short notice and jumped up to welterweight to accept the fight with Huerta. The Brazilian dismantled the former UFC fighter and finished the bout in the 2nd round with a soccer kick that rang back to the days of Pride Fighting Championships. The finish didn’t come without some controversy due to the rules upheld by One FC that allow for kicks on a downed opponent only when the referee gives the fighter the okay to do so. There has been some controversy about the finish since it happened so Moreira sat down with MMAWeekly.com and explained the fight, the win and the finish as well as what’s next
