Corey Hill Signs New Deal with XFC
(mmavalor.com)
Just months after making his XFC debut, Corey Hill has come to terms with the East Coast MMA promotion on a long-term contract. It’s a deal that could possibly give Hill a future title shot with the Xtreme Fighting Championships. John Prisco, XFC President & matchmaker, who has added numerous fighters to the roster already in 2012, disclosed the signing early this morning. Hill, who is best known for his appearance on TUF 5 & stellar showings in the UFC, suffered one of the most gruesome leg breaks in MMA history, back in 2008. Almost 13 months later he was back to full strength, in even better condition, and made his debut at XFC 15 with a win over fellow TUF contestant Charlie Rader. It took Corey Hill only minutes to finish off Rader with a Brabo choke, to successfully complete the comeback just before the end of round 1. The performance proved Hill, now 33 years old, is still one of the top competitors in the welterweight division.

Jorge Santiago Celebrates Latest Win with Decision to Move Down to Welterweight
(mmaweekly.com)
In his last two fights, Santiago has gone 2-0 with stoppages in both bouts while competing in Titan Fighting Championships. His latest bout just last Friday, it took Santiago only 94 seconds to put away Justin Guthrie with a nasty inverted heel hook. The funny thing is, that’s not even something Santiago practices on even a semi-regular basis. Following a tough run in only two fights back in the UFC, Santiago is starting to breathe again and find new life with his team at the Blackzilians in Florida. As an original member of the camp, it took Santiago a little while to acclimate to the new team and new trainers, but he’s now found himself and the results are starting to show. “This is not the new, but the old Jorge Santiago from Japan. The old one, nothing else distracts me anymore, the only thing I have to do now is go out there and fight the way I like to fight, that’s it. Everything is getting more light for me, even the weight,” said Santiago. The weight comment holds an extra special meaning because following his last fight in Titan Fighting over the weekend, Santiago decided that he would be dropping down to 170lbs and testing the welterweight division.

Though sober, Drew Fickett says a loss tonight could result in homelessness
(mmajunkie.com)
Every fighter carries emotional baggage into the cage. Drew Fickett's, though, could stuff the hull of a 747. The veteran fighter, who's recently tried to bring stability to his infamously chaotic life, makes his 60th pro appearance at tonight's ShoFIGHT 20 event. He'll enter the cage with six weeks of sobriety, a new fight team behind him, and the real threat of homelessness if he doesn't get a victory. "I'm facing pressure in this fight, but I've been through so much in my life recently that honestly, I'm not nervous at all," Fickett told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) earlier this week. "If I don't win this fight, I'm pretty much homeless." Fickett (42-17) meets jiu-jitsu ace Jonatas Novaes (9-4) tonight in a featured bout at ShoFIGHT 20, which takes place at O'Reilly Family Event Center in Springfield, Mo. The event airs via tape-delayed pay-per-view on July 1, though Canadian fans can watch it live on The Fight Network at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT).

Before this fight, I imagined that I could submit Kikuno. He had very good defense though, so I could not finish,” he later admitted.

UFC Vets Karo Parisyan And Kendall Grove Look To Rebound At Shofight
(mmanews.com)
The sport of mixed martial arts is tough. There is no disputing that. Fighters experience ups and downs, wins and losses, and make sacrifices to be the very best they can be. Staying committed when you’re winning can be easy. It’s when losses come that combat athletes find out how committed they really are to the fight game. Two fighters in such a position are former UFC stalwarts Karo “The Heat’ Parisyan and Kendall “Da Spyder” Grove. On June 16th in Springfield, Missouri, both will tangle with ultra-tough opponents, as Parisyan will battle fellow UFC vet John Gunderson, and Grove will lock horns with UFC/Strikeforce vet Terry Martin. The winner of the Parisyan-Gunderson tilt will be awarded the first ShoFIGHT welterweight belt, while either Grove or Martin will go home with ShoFIGHT middleweight strap. In short, it’s a big fight for all the competitors involved. PPV broadcast details will be announced soon.

Injury forces Sergei Kharitonov to withdraw from Tony Lopez fight on May 26 in Stockholm
(mmamania.com)
Hard-hitting heavyweight striker Sergei Kharitonov injured his neck and was forced to withdraw from his upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) fight against Tony Lopez at the "2012 Glory World Series" on May 26 in Stockholm, Sweden. Golden Glory head coach Martijn de Jong recently confirmed the change on Twitter. Kharitonov (18-5) was last seen disposing of Mark Miller under the United Glory banner earlier this year 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. Stepping in to take his place will be Swedish "Sledgehammer" Llir Latifi (5-2-1), who was previously booked to throw hands opposite Jeremy Horn until "Gumby" blew out his knee.

UFC veteran Din Thomas victorious in MMA return
(mmamania.com)
It's been over two years, but longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran Din Thomas finally returned to mixed martial arts (MMA) action at "Pure MMA 2" last Saturday night (May 12, 2012) in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, submitting up-and-coming featherweight prospect Cody Bollinger via first-round submission (armbar).

Thomas (26-8) is currently riding a four-fight win streak, which includes a submission victory (triangle choke) over Dustin Pierkin at Headhunter Productions "The Patriot Act" back in Feb. 2009 followed by a technical knockout win (knee) over Gabe Lemley at "March Badness" just over a month later.
