With mixed regulatory reaction, Canadian promotion planning PRIDE-rules show
(mmajunkie.com)
If you think MMA has been sterilized by a ruleset that favors the American wrestler, there is a promoter who would like your dollars. The Canada-based Colosseo Championship Fighting raised a stir at the start of 2010 when it received approval from the Edmonton Combative Sports Commission to use the ruleset of the Japan-based promotion DREAM, which allows knees to the head of a grounded opponent, among other differences with the Unified Rules used in most top MMA promotions. Now, more than a year later, Colosseo is planning another event for July 23 that will employ mostly American talent. Its promoter, Pasqualino Santoro, intends to up the action by using the ruleset of another Japanese promotion, the now-defunct PRIDE Fighting Championships. The soccer kicks and stomps used in PRIDE will stay at Santoro's event, dubbed "Colosseo Championship Fighting 6: Bushido." One-time Strikeforce welterweight contender Marius Zaromskis is in negotiations to fight on the summer card, as are UFC vets Shane Nelson, James Irvin and Rob Emerson, Santoro told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Jay Hieron defends victory over Brent Weedman in Bellator tourney semifinals
(mmajunkie.com)
You might have noticed a visible sigh from Jay Hieron (21-4 MMA, 2-0 BFC) when he was announced the winner in a fight with Brent Weedman (18-6-1 MMA, 4-1 BFC) this past Saturday at Bellator 40. Some might say that sigh was an acknowledgment that he'd just dodged a bullet. But that's not the case, Hieron on Monday told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). It was a sigh of happy exhaustion.

Bellator's Ben Askren is not impressed by bonus-chasing 'losers' like Leonard Garcia
(mmamania.com)
"I think people like that are losers because, in my mind, a fight's about winning, not about putting on a show. We're not singers, we're not actors, we are mixed martial artists or fighters or athletes, whichever way you wanna do it and that's about winning ... When you're fighting for 25 minutes, every fan and their mother can talk **** about this and that and don't finish fights. Well, why don't they get in there and fight for 25 minutes? That's a long time. And you got to win before you show. I mean, people that show on top of winning, say Anderson Silva, that dude now he's a showman but he's also won, what, 13 fights in a row? So, obviously, he can do it. And there's people like Leonard Garcia who goes out and puts on a show but he's like 3-5 in his last 8 fights. Like, c'mon dude."

Heavyweight prospect Tony Johnson Jr. added to Bellator roster, fights at Bellator 41
(mmajunkie.com)
Former King of the Cage heavyweight champ Tony Johnson Jr. (5-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) is Bellator Fighting Championships' latest acquisition. The former Ohio State wrestler and four-time NCAA Division I All-American makes his debut for the promotion at Bellator 41 against an opponent yet to be named. Honestly, I think Bellator are starting to solidify their place as the number 2 mma organization in the world. They're building their roster up very nicely adding a bunch of prospects.

Women's MMA: Potentially Dying in America, Thriving in Japan
(bloodyelbow.com)
The Queen of Pancrase. For those familiar with the testosterone heavy environment of the pioneering MMA promotion, it's something that's tough to wrap your head around. It's not just the MMA business that is changing, it's Japan. A once fiercely patriarchal society is welcoming women into the workforce in record numbers. The role of motherhood, at one time so lauded and respected, has shifted into the background as Japanese women have fewer and fewer babies. These two news items, of course, are connected at the hip. But that's a story for another time and another blog. The times are indeed changing - and that includes MMA as well.
