DAVID BRANCH OUT, MARIO MIRANDA IN AGAINST JAN BLACHOWICZ AT KSW 18
(sherdog.com)
Polish promotion Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki (KSW) has announced a major change to its upcoming Feb. 25 event, as David Branch has been forced to withdraw from his light heavyweight bout against Jan Blachowicz at KSW 18 due to passport issues. Instead, the former KSW champion will face a different UFC veteran, Mario Miranda, Saturday at the Orlen Arena in Plock, Poland. A four-time UFC competitor, Miranda posted a perfect 9-0 record before receiving his Octagon call. The native Brazilian was knocked out in his UFC debut, falling in the first round to Gerald Harris at UFC Fight Night 21 in 2010. Though Miranda rebounded with a victory over David Loiseau, he would receive his walking papers following consecutive losses to Demian Maia and Aaron Simpson. Since his departure from the UFC, the Washingtonian has posted a trio of wins, most recently submitting Dmitry Samoilov at M-1 Challenge 29 on Nov. 19.

Fresh on the heels of a Feb. 10 event in Knoxville, Tenn., Xtreme Fighting Championships will return to The Volunteer State on April 13 with “XFC 17: Apocalypse” at the Oman Arena in Jackson. Headlining the card, which will air LIVE on HDNet, is a 155 pound match-up between Bellator and XFC veteran Eric “It’s A Wrap” Reynolds (14-5) and Brazil’s Luciano “Macarrao” Dos Santos (9-5). Reynolds has been in the cage with guys like Eddie Alvarez, Jorge Masvidal and Rob Emerson, to name a few. He’s coming off a unanimous decision win over Jonatas Novaes at XFC 15 this past December. Dos Santos has fought the majority of his career in Brazil. He is riding a three fight win streak, ending two by way of first round knockout. He last fought in July 2011, winning a unanimous decision over Harris Norwood in Atlanta.

BAMMA 9 – Przemyslaw Mysiala vs. Jason Jones Announced For March 24th Show
(themmanews.com)
Press Release – (Feb 17th.12) BAMMA, Europe’s leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion, is proud to announce Przemyslaw ‘Misiek’ Mysiala vs Jason Jones onto the main card for an electric Light Heavyweight clash at BAMMA 9, which takes place on Saturday 24th March at Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena. Golden Glory’s judoka, Jason Jones, is hungry to gain a shot at the Light Heavyweight title. Boasting 25 battles and 16 wins, Jones has victories by both knock-out and by submission. Misiek steps into the cage with an equally impressive array of experience and also has 16 wins to his name, but just 6 losses. Formerly the UK’s number 1 Light Heavyweight, Misiek has had time out due to injury which led to a slide in his ranking. Passionate to win back his former no. 1 position and with a win over Rea under his belt, Misiek has for a long time had his eyes set on Manuwa. This powerful match-up creates desirable opportunities for both fighters.

Babalu’ Sobral To Face Steve Bosse This May At “Instinct MMA 4?
(themmanews.com)
Press Release – MONTREAL (QUEBEC) February 16th, 2012 – The moment MMA fans have been waiting for is just months away as bout agreements were signed earlier this week for the long anticipated return to the cage of one of the country’s most popular fighters, STEVE “THE BOSS” BOSSE (9-1; 7 KO, 1 SUB). However, there will be no tune-up fight as part of this comeback as Bosse will be stepping into the cage with former world champion RENATO “BABALU” SOBRAL (36-9; 9 KO, 14 SUB) in the main event of Instinct 4 this May in Montreal. We last saw Bosse in action last October as he sent world-renowned striker Houston Alexander crashing to the mat with a vicious elbow to the head, securing a knockout victory in the main event of Instinct 1. It was without a doubt the greatest night of his career, but the win came with a hefty price: a broken hand that would keep him out of action for over 6 months, halting his momentum. With surgery and therapy behind him, “The Boss” is now ready to return home to the cage. Bosse is a fan favorite who never backs down and he knew that in order to continue his climb up the world rankings, there was only one way to go about it: put his incredible 7-fight win streak on the line against the best light heavyweight available. His request was fulfilled as Brazilian Renato Sobral jumped at the opportunity to come to Canada for this fight.
