Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren says he'll retire before he's mastered MMA
(mmajunkie.com)
Of all the current Bellator champions, welterweight Ben Askren might be the least perturbed about the long layoffs typical for the promotion's beltholders. They give him a chance to get better. "When I won a Bellator tournament, I was only a year and four months into my fighting career, maybe," Askren last week told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "My outlook was, OK, now I get all this time to actually get good at this." Askren (10-0 MMA, 7-0 BFC), who is expected in January to defend his title against Karl Amoussou (16-4-2 MMA, 4-1 BFC), isn't selling anybody on the notion that he's a complete fighter. And he won't even come close to being one by the time he retires from MMA...

MMA World Cup 2017
(aljazeera.com)
Having been branded as “human cock fighting” by former Whitehouse hopeful John McCain, mixed martial arts is set to join mainstream sports by having its very own world cup. The competition will happen in 2017 and will fittingly take place at the home of the gladiators in Rome. “Considering the history of Rome, and the Coliseum, it is the perfect environment for the first mixed martial arts world cup. It gives marquee values and it is the right tribute to history,” said World Cup Mixed Martial Arts (WCMMA) Executive Director, Edward Catucci... A watered down version of mma? What do you guys think?

Five Fighters Who Had Career Changing Wins at ONE FC: 'Pride of a Nation'
(mmamania.com)
Phil Baroni. The New York Badass put his money where his mouth is by blowing away Rodrigo Ribeiro in less than a minute and then celebrating in style (see above!) The win improves his overall record to 15-15 and he is 1-1 for ONE FC, 2-2 since getting cut from the UFC and 5-5 in his last 10 fights, which adds a certain sense of symmetry. Ribeiro was 9-8 going into the fight and is a third degree BJJ black belt and a veteran of the Brazilian scene. He is no pushover and went the full three rounds with Rustam Khabilov (who just signed with the UFC) in his last fight but Baroni blew him away in a first round frenzy. This was one of the most impressive performances of Baroni's career and was reminiscent of his famous UFC win over Dave Menne. He is back in the mix in the ONE FC welterweight division and next time he fights it is likely to be on the main card with Fabricio Monteiro and Gregor Gracie two potential opponents.

ONE FC eliminates 'open-attack' rule, adopts full PRIDE rules for soccer kicks
(mmajunkie.com)
ONE Fighting Championship has eliminated its "open-attack" rule for soccer kicks, officials today announced. The decision came a few days after the often-confusing rule resulted in an Andrei Arlovski vs. Tim Sylvia heavyweight contest being declared a no-contest this past weekend at ONE FC 5. Instead, soccer kicks are now legal at all times, and the referee no longer has to distinguish when they're an option. "Effective immediately, ONE FC has adopted full PRIDE rules for soccer kicks," the organization announced via Twitter. The organization's next event, "ONE FC 6: Rise of the Kings," will be the first to feature the rules change. The event takes place Oct. 6 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore, and it's again expected to be available as an online pay-per-view.

Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp taking road less traveled to build women's MMA
(mmajunkie.com)
In Shannon Knapp's estimation, women's MMA isn't quite as bad off as some critics would lead us to believe. And she's going to go about doing what she can to push the women's side of the game forward, developing fighters and changing attitudes until people can only vaguely remember a time when depth was an issue. Knapp, the president of Invicta Fighting Championship, differs slightly from UFC President Dana White, who long has maintained there isn't enough depth in women's MMA. "Depth, by definition, is there," Knapp recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "There are tons of girls out there that want to fight. But the truth of the matter is, when you get into that upper echelon, to that top tier, it's pretty thin." And that may fall in line a little more with what White has been outspoken about – that it's hard to imagine, in the current landscape, women's MMA in the UFC because the weight classes aren't stacked enough to make for regular UFC-quality fights...

Prospect Bruno Carvalho plans fights at featherweight, lightweight in hopes of UFC bid
(mmajunkie.com)
On a push toward the UFC's octagon, Brazilian striking specialist Bruno Carvalho is diversifying weight classes to make himself more appealing. Carvalho on Saturday makes his featherweight debut against Maicon Bastos, and he hopes to use the result to springboard onto the international scene. Once there, he promises to be a model UFC employee. "My greatest dream is to fight in the UFC," Carvalho told MMAjunkie.com. "If I join that organization and they tell me to fight 10 times in a year, I would love that."

World Series of Fighting to Debut in November; Possible NBC Sports Network Deal in Works
(mmafighting.com)
The organization was recently granted a promoter's license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, paving the way for its first event later this year. Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com on Tuesday. MMAWeekly.com first reported the news. According to Kizer, the promotion has requested to hold its first event on Nov. 3 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Kizer forwarded the official request written by WSOF official Keith Evans to MMAFighting.com and in it he states that the card will air on NBC Sports Network, formerly known as Versus. MMAFighting.com has confirmed with another WSOF official that the event will air on NBC Sports Network, however, attempts to confirm the news with the cable channel have thus far been unsuccessful.

Gilbert Yvel vs. Marcio Cruz, Tyson Griffin vs. Efrain Escudero tops RFA 4 on Nov. 2
(mmajunkie.com)
Resurrection Fighting Alliance's next event now has a venue and headliners. RFA 4 is set for Nov. 2 at Texas Station's Dallas Event Center in Las Vegas, the promotion announced on Wednesday. The event airs live on Fight Now TV. Headlining the event is a light-heavyweight clash between former UFC fighters Gilbert Yvel (38-16-1) and Marcio "Pe de Pano" Cruz (7-3). A lightweight fight between Tyson Griffin (15-6) and "The Ultimate Fighter 8" winner Efrain Escudero (18-5) co-headlines. Following a three-fight skid that prompted his exit from the UFC, Yvel earned back-to-back stoppage victories under the RFA banner. Most recently, he delivered a first-round knockout of fellow octagon vet Houston Alexander at RFA 2. Cruz, a decorated submission grappler, hasn't competed since July 2011, when current UFC prospect Glover Teixeira scored a TKO victory over him at an event in Brazil. The loss snapped a five-fight win streak that followed his exit from the UFC, which came with back-to-back losses to Jeff Monson and Andrei Arlovski. For the record the Yvel/Cruz fights at 205 - love that matchup!

Heavyweight Jared Rosholt on 'ibuprofen diet' ahead of Legacy FC 13 title fight

It ain't easy being a big man in a world of smaller guys. Just ask undefeated prospect Jared Rosholt, who said an "ibuprofen diet" is a requirement during training, when he does everything his smaller and more agile Team Takedown teammates do. Admittedly, though, he pays the price for it, and the grueling workouts take a toll.

Following Tyrone Mims' death, Conflict MMA plans memorial event, trust fund for children
(mmajunkie.com)
Following the death of Tyrone Mims this past weekend following a Conflict MMA Promotions event in South Carolina, company officials plan to honor the amateur fighter at their next show. Shortly after a TKO loss at the organization's Aug. 11 event, "Teestea" passed out backstage and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly after. In a statement sent to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), Conflict MMA representatives said they plan to hold a memorial event in December. Additionally, a title belt will be named in the 30-year-old's honor, and a memorial trust fund will be set up for his five children. "Conflict MMA Promotions traveled to Augusta, Ga., to spend time in mourning with his family," stated Edward Phipps, legal counsel for the fight promotion. "Conflict MMA would like to thank Tyrone Mims' parents, Thomas and Barbara, and all of his loving family and friends that so graciously welcomed them with open arms. They appreciated the time the family spent with them sharing precious stories and memories of Tyrone. Tyrone's influence and what he contributed to so many lives will forever be in our hearts, and the tragic loss of his kind soul will not be forgotten. "Conflict MMA Promotions would like to have a special memorial for Tyrone Mims at the next event in December with permission and participation of his family. In addition to setting up a memorial trust fund for his children, there will be a title belt dedicated to his name."
