CEO Bjorn Rebney: Nate Marquardt currently "just isn't a good fit" for Bellator
Bjorn Rebney knows top-10 fighters don't grow on trees, and it's even rarer to find such free agents coming off a victory. But despite the availability of Nate Marquardt, the Bellator chairman and CEO said the former UFC middleweight title challenger won't be headed to his organization anytime soon. As he today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), Marquardt "just isn't a good fit" for the organization at this time.

New Mexico Commission Overturns Draw, Declares Chris Camozzi Winner
(mmaweekly.com)
The New Mexico Athletic Commission has changed the decision in the Shark Fights bout between Chris Camozzi and Joey Villasenor. The commission discovered a scoring error from the judges’ scorecards after the fights ended on May 27 at Shark Fights in Rio Rancho, N.M. On Tuesday, they overturned the initial call for the bout, a draw, and declared Camozzi the winner by split decision. MMAWeekly.com obtained the scorecards from fight night, and according to the score sheet, judge Robert Romero scored the fight 29-28 Camozzi, and judge Jenna Vasquez scored the fight 29-28 Villasenor. Judge Mark Sanchez had the fight scored 29-29, which caused the fight to be a draw, but on the scorecard, it actually read that he had given Camozzi both rounds two and three, so it should have been 29-28 for Camozzi. The fight has been switched by the commission and Camozzi has been awarded the victory.

Refferee's DANGEROUS mistake in Kim Couture fight
(mmamania.com)
If you guys haven't see this outrage, you should. The video of this incompetant referee in this fight is included, as is the step by step photo documentation of this. The choke is applied at 1:59 of the video. Kim couture appears to be out at 2:07. She's CLEARLY UNCONSCIOUS at 2:11. THe Ref stops the fight at 2:19. Quite frankly, she's lucky to walk out with such an idiotic, ignorant ref working this fight. This guy should NEVER work another fight again. He should NEVER have another human's well-being in his hands ever again. For the record, it was a slick scissors choke. Plus, it shows that Kimmy Doesn't have much of a future in MMA...But both of those things get overshadowed by this buffoon. Seriously, check it out

Bloodyelbow's Number One Ranked Scouting Report Lightweight Thiago Michel Signs With Bellator
(bloodyelbow.com)
BloodyElbow.com's #1 ranked lightweight on the 2011 World MMA Scouting Report, Thiago Michel, has signed with Bellator. BloodyElbow.com confirmed through a source close to the fighter last Friday. The 2010 WAKO World Cup kickboxing champion is rumored to possibly make his debut in the fall, around September or October in a tune-up bout before attempting to capitalize on an opportunity to fight for the Bellator lightweight crown by fighting in the tournament format. Michel is currently 8-2 in his mixed martial arts career, amassing a 1-1 record since the Scouting Report was released in November. A loss to Alessandro Ferreira soured some fans who were intrigued with our report as Michel's lacking ground game was exploited by a better grappler. He rebounded five months later against Erick Barbosa at Brazil Fight 4 in a highly-entertaining showcase of his diverse striking prowess, utilizing improved takedown defense and a versatile kicking game.

Video: Ken Shamrock vs. James Toney Press Conference
(bloodyelbow.com)
A press conference was held yesterday to formally announce the match up between two aging legends from their respective sports, UFC Hall-of-Famer, Ken Shamrock and Boxing champ, James Toney. The two met with the press, exchanged words, and almost got into an altercation. The date and venue on their match up still hasn't been finalized yet. Though amidst the trash talk between the two, earlier reports that the rules for their bout would be modified a bit have been confirmed. It will be contested at eight rounds of only 3-minutes each, with both fighters only allowed to stay on the ground for 30 seconds before they get stood back up. Rules are adjusted to slightly favor the boxer, and while it probably won't change the outcome of the fight either way, that special rule-set makes this an even bigger freakshow bout than originally expected.

Hector Lombard vs. Jesse Taylor targeted for August AFC event in Australia
(mmajunkie.com)

Hector Lombard (29-2-1) is headed back to his second home. Sources close to negotiations today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the Bellator middleweight champion has received permission to take a fight against "The Ultimate Fighter 7" veteran Jesse Taylor (19-6) late this summer. The bout is targeted for an Australian Fighting Championship event expected for Aug. 27, likely in Melbourne, Australia. The promotion's broadcast plans are unknown at this time. Lombard most recently was seen in the cage this past month at Bellator 44, where he knocked out Falaniko Vitale in a non-title bout. The two got off to a very slow start while circling each other for two rounds without much offense. Lombard, though, eventually landed a crushing right hand. The Cuban native has defended his Bellator belt once with a decision victory over Alexander Shlemenko at Bellator 34. He also holds the middleweight title in the Australia-based Cage Fighting Championship and has defended it seven times during an unbeaten streak that's stretched nearly four years. An emigrant to Australia from his native country, Lombard, a former Olympian in Judo, spends the bulk of his time in Coconut Creek, Fla., where he moved several years ago to train with American Top Team. Taylor, meanwhile, enjoys a five-fight win streak that includes a win under the AFC banner. He most recently dispatched UFC and PRIDE vet Denis Kang at "Battlefield Fight League 8: Island Beatdown" this past month and defeated former UFC middleweight champ Murilo Bustamante 11 months before at "Impact FC 2: The Uprising 2." Since his release from the UFC in 2008, Taylor has gone 13-3 while shuffling between welterweight, middleweight and even light heavyweight.

BJPENN.COM was the first to learn that James Toney and Ken Shamrock have agreed to face off in an MMA match on Sept. 23 in El Paso, Texas. While details are still emerging about the venue and fight card, the former UFC fighters are going to face off in a heavyweight attraction in what will be James Toney’s second professional MMA bout. BJPENN.COM confirmed this with both Toney’s manager and Mr. Toney himself this evening via telephone. Not 100% sure if this is real but it's all over twitter so figured I'd post it.
