Weekend Results: Fred Ettish Puts Demons to Rest
(mma.fanhouse.com)
It took over fifteen years, but UFC 2 competitor Fred Ettish notched his first career victory over the weekend at a local card in Brainerd, Minn. The 53-year-old Ettish, who faced ridicule in his previous and only MMA fight, forced submission Saturday by pounding out the much younger and heavier Kyle Fletcher at 3:20 of the first round at a Cage Fighting Xtreme event promoted by UFC welterweight Brock Larson. Ettish (1-1) entered the fight seeking redemption for a 3:07 loss at UFC 2 in March 1994.

MMA pioneer Don Frye out of Aug. 28 "M-1 Breakthrough," event moved to Kansas City
(mmajunkie.com)
M-1 Global's Aug. 28 event, "Breakthrough," has suffered another setback as Don Frye has backed out of the evening's main event. Frye's opponent, Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal, released the information in a recent video blog posted on YouTube. "Don Frye, I guess, pulled out because he didn't like the location of the fight," Lawal says in the video. "It was originally supposed to be in Los Angeles, but I guess they moved it to Kansas City or something. I'm trying to still get that payday, so they're going to find a replacement to take his spot." Sources close to the event have since confirmed Frye's withdrawal from the card with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), as well as the relocation of the event to Kansas City. SI.com first broke the news that "M-1 Breakthrough" would not be happening in Los Angeles in conjunction with IMMAE, an international MMA trade show. Much was made of M-1 Global's lack of a promoter's license in California, but sources close to the event point to a financial backer withdrawing its commitment as the real culprit. While M-1 Global has yet to make an official announcement regarding a venue in Kansas City, the organization would most likely look to Memorial Hall, the same venue that hosted a June event from the company's "M-1 Challenge" team-vs.-team event series. Sources close to the event said a replacement for Frye is likely to be announced as soon as Monday, and the show – which will be broadcast on HDNet – will go on despite the changes.

Shonie Carter vs. Derrick Noble set for Vendetta FC in September
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
With over 100 total professional Mixed Martial Arts bouts between them, and more than twenty years of combined in-ring experience, it might surprise some to find out Derrick Noble and Shonie Carter have never crossed paths in their notable careers. While each has faced a number the sport’s top competitors since first testing the MMA waters, even scoring wins over the likes of Thiago Alves, Matt Serra, Chris Lytle, and Carlos Prater along the way, neither Noble or Carter have ever faced off against each other inside the cage.

Elvis Sinosic Talks About The Affliction Crash
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Elvis Sinosic Talks About The Affliction Crash I write this opinion as a fan, a fighter and a coach. It was sad to see the demise of another big MMA organization. To see Affliction collapse was sad. As a fan I have now lost another opportunity watch MMA. I lost the opportunity to watch fighters that aren’t in the UFC. So I am left with less MMA and in my opinion that is disappointing. As a fighter it means one less show that I have the opportunity to fight in. This means one less avenue which allows me to earn a living (and for all other fighters as well). Sadly no one show will be able to give every fighter and opportunity. We need more shows to give the fighters more exposure and more opportunity to fight. As a coach it means one less show for my fighters to compete in. Sadly the demise has left a hole in the sport. Hopefully in time that hole will be filled by another organization. But even still it still means one less place to share my enjoyment of MMA. Thanks, Elvis Sinosic The King of Rock ‘n Rumble Sinosic Perosh Martial Arts

He dropped a unanimous decision, 3 29-28s, to fellow UFC veteran Kevin Jordan last night at the debut event of American Steel Cagefighting in New Jersey. Jordan last fought in the Octagon at UFC 56, where he was KO'd by Gabriel Gonzaga.

Fight Path: For XFC's big man Chris Barnett, martial arts was a family affair
(mmajunkie.com)
Chris Barnett was a solid 320 pounds when went into the Xtreme Fighting Championships tryout in October. The Tampa gym was busy with fighters who wanted a shot at MMA, especially in an organization known to host some of the most exciting up-and-comers around. Not many of them, though, had heard about the tryout following a breakdancing back-and-forth with one of the organization's representatives, as Barnett had. But Barnett was unusual in several ways. He had come from a taekwondo-practicing family with an Air Force father who was quiet but respected. He had been a small-college wrestler who had learned judo with a friend because, frankly, there's not much else to do in Campbellsville, Ky.

Former UFC light heavyweight Tim Boetsch will be back in the cage on Aug. 15 in a matchup against IFL veteran Aaron Stark at King of the Cage "Thunderstruck" in Everett, Washington.

Latest to flow down the pipeline is Fabian Acuna, a fighter some call “The 155-pound Cung Le.” After taking nearly six years off from the sport, Acuna returned to action in April, defeating James Martinez at Ring of Fire 34 in just over a minute-and-a-half.

RING OF FIRE: GUNDERSON SEIZING TITLE SHOT
(mmaweekly.com)
After continued success in the Northwest fight circuit, John “Quick Guns” Gunderson has found it difficult to break through on the national stage. Rollercoaster results in the International Fight League (IFL) were followed up by a lengthy amount of time off due to injury, further setting back what had looked like a promising career. Undeterred, a return to action this year has seen Gunderson go 3-1. He’s on the verge of possibly making the breakthrough into the spotlight with a title shot in the highly respected Ring of Fire promotion on Aug. 1 against tough Chilean fighter Fabian Acuna.

Bitetti Combat: Jeff Monson vs Pedro Rizzo in the works for Sept. 12

A heavyweight battle between stocky grappling guru Jeff “The Snowman” Monson (30-8) and former WVC heavyweight champion Pedro Rizzo (16-9) is in the works for “Bitetti Combat” from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on September 12, according to Super Lutas.
