Mike Hayes vs. D.J. Linderman title fight headlines Cage Warriors 47
(mmajunkie.com)
A title fight and rematch will headline Cage Warriors 47 with newly crowned champion Mike Hayes (18-4-1) taking on fellow American heavyweight D.J. Linderman (11-3). Cage Warriors officials today announced the Irish headliner. The event, which features a championship doubleheader, takes place June 2 at The Helix in Dublin, and the main card streams live on MMAjunkie.com. Hayes and Linderman first fought back in 2009 at a regional Alliance Fights show in Washington. Linderman won the bout via unanimous decision, but their paths never crossed when they both subsequently joined Bellator. "I can't stand D.J. Linderman," Hayes stated. "He's a piece of trash. I'm going to smash him."

Sergei Kharitonov vs Tony Lopez booked for United Glory MMA bout on May 26 in Stockholm
(mmamania.com)
No UFC ... no Strikeforce ... no problem! Hard-hitting heavyweight striker Sergei Kharitonov is back in the mixed martial arts (MMA) spotlight, coming to terms with United Glory for an upcoming bout against the dangerous Tony Lopez at the "2012 Glory World Series" on May 26 in Stockholm, Sweden. News of the pending match-up comes via the fine men and women at LiverKick.com. Kharitonov (18-5) was last seen kicking the crap out of Mark Miller under the United Glory banner just last month in Russia. It was a nice rebound win (under kickboxing rules) for the former paratrooper, who was bounced from the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix with a submission loss to Josh Barnett back in 2011. But things aren't getting any easier.

Bobby Lashley vs. James Thompson to headlined Super Fight League 3 on May 6
(mmajunkie.com)
The headliner is set for Super Fight League 3: heavyweights Bobby Lashley (7-1) vs. James Thompson (17-14). The Indian-based organization today announced the fight, which takes place May 6 at IGI Stadium in New Delhi. The entire lineup streams on YouTube. Other announced SFL 3 bouts include light heavyweights Trevor Prangley (23-9-1) vs. Baga Agaev (26-11), middleweights Doug Marshall (14-5) vs. Zelg Galesic (10-6), and 125-pounders Lena Ovchynnikova (8-1) vs. Joanne Calderwood (1-0). As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) reported this past week, Lashley is in the running for a currently unannounced June 21 event in Russia for a fight with Fedor Emelianenko (33-4). The SFL booking makes that possibility a little less likely.

Former Tachi Palace champ Ulysses Gomez committed to flyweight, seeking UFC bid
(mmajunkie.com)
Flyweight Ulysses Gomez (9-2) is certain of two things in his career: He wants to be in the UFC, and he's not a bantamweight, no matter how much it might hurt to admit. The UFC aspirations he's known for sometime, the return to 125 pounds is a more recent decision. "As much as I hate to admit it, I'm not big enough for 135," Gomez recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I learned that in my last fight when I fought Cody Gibson. He was a little bit taller at the weigh-in. Then when he walked in the cage, I was like, 'Man, this guy rehydrated pretty good.'" Fortunately for Gomez, who recently vacated the Tachi Palace Fights bantamweight belt in order to make a permanent return to 125 pounds, the UFC recently added a flyweight division. It was bittersweet for Gomez, who saw fellow TPF champ Ian McCall earn entry into the promotion's four-man 125-pound tourney. It's the final fight on Gomez's Tachi Palace Fights contract, and he's hoping the bout can serve as an informal UFC tryout. The UFC dream is front and center, and Gomez believes now is his time to make a run to the bright lights. "The UFC has been in the corner of my head for how many years?" Gomez asked. "I've been pumped up since like 2010, when the WEC was supposed to have the 125-pound division. I've been pumped up for a while. "I'm supposed to fight May 10 – Tachi Palace one more time. This is my last one on my contract, and hopefully bigger and better things after that."

Todd Duffee wins first fight since 2009, knocks out Neil Grove in SFL 2 main event
(mmajunkie.com)
Todd Duffee today picked up his first victory since August 2009. And it took him just 34 seconds to get it. The former UFC heavyweight made quick work of recent Bellator fighter Neil Grove in the headliner of today's Super Fight League 2 event. The show took place in Chandigarh, India, and streamed live on YouTube. Duffee (6-2), whom the UFC surprisingly released after a May 2010 loss to Mike Russow, fought for the first time since his December 2010 DREAM title loss to Alistair Overeem. In the SFL 2 featured attraction, he lunged forward with punches and connected with a big right hook that sent Grove (11-6-1) to the canvas. A few follow-up punches prompted the stoppage just 34 seconds into the fight...

A welterweight bout between PRIDE and UFC vet Marcus Aurelio (21-9) and recent Strikeforce fighter Mike Bronzoulis (13-4-1) is a late addition to next month's Legacy Fighting Championships 11 event.

As MMAjunkie.com reported Tuesday, Drysdale vs. Villanueva was pushed back to July's Legacy Fighting 12 card because of an undisclosed injury suffered by Drysdale.

Super Fight League 2 streams Saturday on YouTube, Duffee vs. Grove headlines
(mmajunkie.com)
The lineup is set for Saturday's Super Fight League 2 event, which streams live on YouTube from Chandigarh, India, beginning at 9:15 a.m. ET (6:15 a.m. PT). As previously announced, the event features a heavyweight headliner between former UFC fighter Todd Duffee (6-2) and recent Bellator tourney finalist Neil Grove (11-5-1). Other featured bouts include lightweights Paul Kelly (12-4) vs. Ryan Healy (19-10-1) and middleweights Alexander Shlemenko (44-7) vs. Ikuhisa "Minowaman" Minowa (52-33-8). Duffee fights for the first time since a quick December 2010 loss to Alistair Overeem for DREAM's vacant heavyweight title. It followed the first defeat of his career, which came to Mike Russow at UFC 114 and ultimately led to his release from the promotion. He now takes on Grove, who's fought his past six fights in Bellator with a 3-3 record. He's currently in a 1-3 skid that included a season-three tournament-finale loss to now-champ Cole Konrad. SFL, an Indian-based organization that bills itself as the country's first MMA promotion, recently announced a three-year streaming deal with YouTube. All of the shows will be available free, including this past month's debut, which saw James Thompson defeat fellow super heavyweight Bob Sapp in the main event.

Bob Sapp vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski Signed for KSW 19 Main Event
( mmafighting.com)
Apr 2, 2012 - Apparently, Bob Sapp has recovered from the mysterious leg injury that led to his most recent loss less than one month ago, because "the Beast" is ready to get back in the cage, and the matchup is one that should delight fans of the old "freakshow" style of matchmaking. Sapp, who has lost five in a row and eight of his last nine, is now set to fly to Poland to take on that country's favorite son, former World's Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski. The KSW promotion confirmed the matchup which will take place as the main event of KSW 19 on May 12 at Atlas Stadium in Lodz.

M-1 / ONE FC cross promotion headlined by Fedor Emelianenko set for Singapore in October?
(mmamania.com)
M-1's Director of Operations Evgeni Kogan attended last night's (March 31, 2012) ONE FC show as a special guest of CEO / Owner Victor Cui, fueling rumors that a cross promotion between the two organizations headlined by Fedor Emelianenko might be in the works. When Emelianenko was at the height of his success and negotiations were underway with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the biggest issue was M-1's insistence that any deal should involve a cross promotion, something that Dana White and company were totally unwilling to countenance. This is where ONE FC and the UFC differ. Whereas the UFC refuses to work with other mixed martial arts (MMA) organizations, ONE FC has embraced the concept of cross promotion and has even formed a network to allow fighters to move freely between Dream, Deep, Road FC, URCC, CFC (in Australia) and various others.
