When brothers Caros Fodor and Phoenix Jones fight, Mama will turn away
(mmafighting.com)
If you ask Caros Fodor, fighting his younger brother Ben Fodor in a sanctioned bout with definitive rules is a cakewalk compared to the many unofficiated brawls and dust-ups of their youths -- early territory fights that went on well before anyone knew what a "publicity stunt" even was. "This time we got a referee to break us up," Caros says, almost a little too giddily. "So this is probably the safest fight we’ve ever had."

At long last, Fedor Emelianenko headed to the UFC ... UFC Fight Pass, that is
(mmajunkie.com)
Legendary heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko emerged from a retirement of more than three years this past December and cruised to a first-round TKO of Jaideep Singh in Japan. His return came after plenty of speculation about where he’d wind up – and the UFC was, naturally, one of the promotions he was rumored to wind up. But Rizin Fighting Federation is where he went to, not the UFC. But later this month, the UFC will get Fedor anyway – in a roundabout sort of way. Emelianenko (35-4) will fight UFC veteran Fabio Maldonado (22-9) at a Eurasian Fight Nights event in St. Petersburg, Russia – and that bout, set for June 17, will be streamed on the UFC’s Fight Pass digital network.

Emil Weber Meek Shocks the World, Stops Palhares
(mmaviking.com)
Emil Weber Meek (8-2-1-1) stops Rousimar Palhares (18-7) in less than a minute by countering a single leg with elbows and then punches to the head to quickly KO the Brazilian! “I’m here to shock the world” said Meek to MMAViking.com about the opportunity to fight the UFC veteran and WSOF champion, and he did just that at Venator FC III. There was short feeling out period in Italy, where the two fighters exchanged a few punches without much intention. Then Palhares dove in for a single leg and had it against the cage looking to get the fight to the ground. With the Norwegian’s back to the fence, the Frontline MMA Academy fighter landed hard elbows with mean intentions which stunned the Brazilian. Quickly turning on top of the dangerous fighter, Meek wasted no time in punching Toquino in the side of the head with quick and powerful blows, and again, and again, and again until the referee jumped in at just 45 seconds!!!
