BAMMA 6: Frank Trigg Returns To 185, Says Welterweight Was A Big Mistake
(mmaweekly.com)
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
(bloodyelbow.com)
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.

(mmajunkie.com)
Jay Hieron will tell you repeatedly that the toughest guys don't always win MMA tournaments. Instead, he says, the guys who fight the best do. It's both a slight at himself and a pat on his own back. Hieron, of course, recently won Bellator Fighting Championships' season-four welterweight tournament as the early favorite. And though his close wins and fighting style have been heavily panned in recent weeks, he recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) his strategy was sound.
