BAMMA postpones event to implement mandatory MRI scans for fighters
(mmafighting.com)
The death of Joao Carvalho is having a marked effect on mixed martial arts in Europe. BAMMA is the latest organization to make a major change for fighter safety following the tragic passing of Carvalho after a bout in Ireland last month. The British promotion announced Tuesday that it would be pushing back its June event to properly implement a new MRI/MRA testing procedure. Beginning after the event this weekend, BAMMA fighters will be required to have an MRI/MRA scan, according to a press release. Because that system will take months to put into place, BAMMA will be pushing back its BAMMA 26 card from June 4 to Sept. 10. The event will remain in Dublin, the city where it was initially scheduled. All tickets will be honored and refunds are also available, the release said.

‘TUF 12’ Winner Brookins Rematches Ishiwatari for BW Crown at Pancrase 279 Title Doubleheader
(sherdog.com)
Pancrase's July 24 card at Differ Ariake in Tokyo will feature a title doubleheader, albeit under unconventional circumstances. The long-tenured Japanese promotion announced Monday that “Ultimate Fighter” Season 12 winner Jonathan Brookins will return to the promotion to challenge bantamweight King of Pancrase Shintaro Ishiwatari for the title in the main event of Pancrase 279. The 30-year-old Brookins made his promotional debut in November 2014, defeating Ishiwatari by unanimous decision in a three-round non-title affair and has not fought since. Despite not being listed in Pancrase's official rankings and not having fought for over 18 months, the previous win was enough to earn title bid for the yogi Brookins, who now trains out of Tristar Gym in Montreal.

Mir echoes kanagaroo meat sentiment in light of failed 'B' sample drug test
(bloodyelbow.com)
Last month, it was revealed that Frank Mir tested positive for oral turiabol metabolites - an anabolic steroid - for his in-competition drug test relating to UFC Fight Night: Mir vs. Hunt. Mir, who lost via first round KO to 'Super Samoan', hinted that tainted kangaroo meat in Australia was perhaps responsible for his failed drug test, and the two-time heavyweight champion is using the same argument to defend his 'B' sample, which also flagged for performance-enhancing drugs. Mir cited NFL lineman Duane Brown on his Phone Booth Fighting podcast (per MMA Fighting), whose positive drug test for clenbuterol stemmed from tainted beef he ate in Mexico.

Prestige FC 7 Cancelled Due to Ongoing Wildfire
(topmmanews.com)
As we are sure you assumed, the Prestige FC 7 card on June 3rd has been postponed. Many of the people involved in the Ft McMurray MMA scene have lost their homes in the fire and others had family and friends who lost theirs. At this time the residence of Ft Mac aren’t sure when they will be allowed to return to their homes. We had hopes we could still hold the show as scheduled and give the locals an event they could enjoy during a terrible time, however the situation is worse than we first thought and holding an event four weeks from now would be impossible. As a group we would like to thank the Canadian MMA community, and fans of Canadian MMA, for their incredible support! We would also like to encourage all promotions across Canada that are currently booking fights to put Jesse Ronson, Matt Dwyer, Cody Krahn, Luke Spicer, and Leroy Noltcho at the top of your list. These men have been great to work with and have been nothing but professional since we signed them to fight for Prestige. All are ready and will be looking for a promotion to fight for.

Rizin Fighting’s Ultimate Goal is to Have UFC Send its Champions to Rizin Grand Prix
(mmaweekly.com)
Rizin Fighting Federation has rekindled the fighting spirit of Pride FC in Japan, bringing in fighters such as Fedor Emelianenko, Wanderlei Silva, and Kazushi Sakuraba. The foundation of the promotion, however, is its eight-man Grand Prix. Rizin has built its Grand Prix not by signing all the fighters it can find, but by inviting fighters from partnering promotions around the globe to send their fighters to compete. Rizin’s first Grand Prix winner was Bellator’s King Mo Lawal. Returning to the Grand Prix format in 2016, Rizin president and former Pride executive Nobuyuki Sakakibara said that the first round of the 2016 Grand Prix will begin in September and conclude with the promotion’s big New Year’s event.

Invicta FC 17 results: Evinger retains at bantamweight, Hill captures strawweight belt
(mmajunkie.com)
Colleen Schneider was as high as a +400 underdog entering her shot at Tonya Evinger and the bantamweight title at Invicta FC 17. She came up short, but showed enough to suggest she may have deserved a little more respect at the sportsbooks. Schneider (10-7) was game for five rounds against Evinger (18-5) never backing down from her more experienced and accomplished opponent. However, Evinger simply had more tools available as she repeatedly used trip takedowns to grind away for a unanimous decision victory.
