With UFC bringing in flyweights, will Tachi Palace suffer? Luchau doesn't think so
(mmajunkie.com)
A unique selling point of Tachi Palace Fights in recent years has been its flyweight division. The California-based promotion has recruited talent aggressively and built a roster that includes several of the world's top-ranked 125-pound fighters. With recent news that the UFC is soon to add the sport's lightest class to its roster, you'd think Tachi would be bracing itself for a exodus of talent, and naturally not be too happy about it.

MFC 30 results and review
(addictedmma.com)
MFC 30: Cobb catches Fickett with first-round finish, Davis, Westcott, Lima among other winners at M Brian Cobb survived a series of serious submission threats, turned the tide of his fight in a quick flash, and scored a surprising TKO victory over Drew Fickett in the co-main event of the Maximum Fighting Championship’s MFC 30: Up Close & Personal on Friday night. The event aired live on HDNet Fights before a packed house at the Mayfield Convention Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. Cobb (19-6), who was making his MFC debut, was in deep trouble after being taken down in the corner with Fickett eyeing a fast submission victory. Fickett (41-14) looked to have the win sewn up as he took Cobb’s back, secured a body lock, and went for a rear-naked choke followed by a neck crank. But “The Bandit” eventually slithered out of harm’s way and turned into Fickett’s guard to begin raining down right hands. When Fickett’s head bounced off the mat for the second time, referee Vern Gorman stepped in to halt Cobb’s attack with just 16 seconds left in the first round. “Without a doubt, the biggest win of my career,” said Cobb, the Bakersfield, California, product who racked up his fourth straight victory. “It was a true honor to fight Drew Fickett and I am extremely happy with this win.”

Bellator's Rebney: "Summer Series" tourney highlights international-recruiting success
(mmajunkie.com)
With four seasons under his belt, Bellator Fighting Championships CEO Bjorn Rebney knows his organization has shined in a few key areas. With a hodgepodge of TV deals that ultimately led to MTV2, ratings have been a mixed bag. And grabbing MMA fans' interest following the UFC-Strikeforce merger has been tough. But Rebney, who kicks off a three-event "Summer Series" of shows later this month, knows the organization's summer tournament is proof of two accomplishments: international recruiting and a solid featherweight division.

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney Speaks on Relationship with Spike TV
(bloodyelbow.com)
In the midst of all the talk surrounding the UFC, G4 and Spike TV, MMA Fighting reported Wednesday that if the UFC were to leave Spike TV at the end of this year, Bellator likely would fill the MMA gap on the network, moving over from sister station MTV2. Both Spike TV and MTV2 fall under the MTV Networks banner. We asked Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney about this developing situation Thursday on Bloody Elbow Radio. Not surprisingly, he was non-commital.

Weekend Rundown: Teixeira Wins 10th Straight
(sherdog.com)
Brazil’s top light heavyweight free agent made quick work of an overmatched opponent Saturday at Shooto Brazil 23, the first stop on what could be Glover Teixeira’s last tour of his home circuit before jumping stateside. Inside the Hebrew Social and Sports Club in Rio de Janeiro, the 31-year-old Teixeira used his famously heavy hands to drub Amapaense Simao Melo, a replacement for original adversary Maurilio “Touro” de Souza. After a brief struggle on the ground, Teixeira unleashed a flurry of knees and punches, finishing the 211-pound catchweight contest with a lights-out right cross at 1:49 of the opening round. The knockout extended Teixeira’s winning streak to 10 and marked the start of a busy summer for the onetime Chuck Liddell sparring partner.

Titan Fighting Championships 18 results: Jens Pulver and Jake Rosholt falter
(mmajunkie.com)
The two biggest names at Friday's Titan Fighting Championships 18 event faltered with co-headliners Jens Pulver and Jake Rosholt both suffering losses. Pulver simply was outworked. Rosholt, though, simply made a mistake after dominating his bout. The fights were part of HDNet's live broadcast from Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. Pulver (24-15-1), a former UFC champ fighting for the fourth time since coming out a retirement following an unsuccessful run in the WEC, scored takedowns on 140-pound Missourian Brian Davidson (7-3). But without an edge standing or on the mat, Davidson ultimately locked in a fight-ending rear-naked choke at the 4:04 mark of the opening round.

BAMMA 6: Frank Trigg Returns To 185, Says Welterweight Was A Big Mistake

Frank Trigg heads into his BAMMA 6 match-up with John Phillips looking to answer a question: Can he still compete at middleweight? “I think one of the biggest mistakes that I made was trying to convince myself that I can still be viable at 170,” Trigg told MMAWeekly.com. “It wasn’t the fact that I didn’t have the athletic ability or the talent to be viable at 170. What had happened was that I am inefficient at 170. I’m too big now to make the weight class.”

BAMMA 6 Results: Kong Dissects Ninja in 3

In what was expected to be BAMMA Middleweight Champion Tom Watson's toughest test to date the Southampton, England native made it look easy. Loose and sharp on his feet and excellently setting up his bludgeoning kicks with crisp punches he looked to have his opponent Murilo Rua figured out from the beginning, likely a product of focusing his training camp for this fight at Team Greg Jackson in New Mexico. Murilo appeared a little doughy and possibly out of shape. Even when warming up the Chute Boxe product and Pride Veteran looked to have lost some flexibility in his hamstrings. Had he taken his opponent too lightly?

KSW 16 Results: Mamed Khalidov Chokes Out Matt Lindland, James Thompson Wills Way to Victory
(bloodyelbow.com)
The nail in the coffin may have finally been struck for the career of Matt Lindland at KSW 16 on Saturday as Sengoku veteran Mamed Khalidov made quick work of the UFC veteran, choking him out via guillotine in the first round of action in the main event of the evening in Gdansk, Poland. Lindland's vaunted wrestling background was only a minor threat during the fight when he nearly reversed Khalidov's attempt to take him down shortly after the fight started. After a brief scramble, Lindland was able to regain his feet, but that only staved off the inevitable for a short time.
