Exclusive: Fedor NOT Fighting on DREAM's OWGP
(dreamfighters.com)
We asked M-1 if there was any truth to this rumor, or statement made by a DREAM Official. There is no truth in this rumour at all. No one really thought it was possible for Fedor to enter, but a great deal of people hoped, including every major Croatian news team. After the statment from the DREAM official that they plan to host a Open-Weight Grand Prix, and they want Fedor and Mirko to be in it, right away they hoped for Fedor vs Crocop 2. However, at this time M-1 is saying “No Truth At all” to this statement and rumor.

(fightticker.com)

As a result, UWC owner/promoter S. Marcello Foran has issued a statement noting that UWC will be pursuing legal actions against Beebe to cover costs and contractual obligations among possibly other things.

Von Flue Chokes Out Ramerez
(sherdog.com)
TULARE, Calif. -- Jason Von Flue choked Steve Ramerez unconscious Saturday in the main event of Pure Combat’s “Backyard Brawl.” Ramerez came out looking to strike, catching Von Flue with a punch before being wrapped up in the clinch and tumbling to the mat. Ramerez rolled for a reversal, but Von Flue kept rolling, landed on top and took Ramerez’s back. From there Von Flue kept his hooks in and worked for a rear-naked choke. Meanwhile Ramerez punched behind him, trying in vain to break the hold. He could not and went to sleep at 2:54. After the fight Von Flue thanked the crowd and praised his opponent’s toughness. He then took a moment to propose to his girlfriend.

Bellator FC Open To Working With Strikeforce
(mmaweekly.com)
You’d be hard pressed to find an avid MMA fan that didn’t want to see Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson face off with East Coast standout Eddie Alvarez. While Thomson carries the belt of an organization poised to be the next serious player in the MMA market, Alvarez’s popularity in recent years has run parallel to the American Kickboxing Academy product. In November, Alvarez signed a deal with Bellator Fighting Championships, whose 12-week tournament based show debuts on ESPN Deportes in April. But Bjorn Rebney, CEO of Bellator FC, says there is room for Alvarez, and others, to roam. And that includes Strikeforce.

Spoiled "Cabbage": Correira Suspended In Contract Dispute
(sherdog.com)
Wesley Correira isn't exactly the most appealing form of "Cabbage" right now. The CSAC has temporarily suspended him for failing to satisfy a one-fight contract to face Buddy Clinton at a co-promoted Wargods and Ken Shamrock Productions event on Feb. 13 in Fresno, Calif. Correira claims it was because his fight purse would be halved to offset costs of last-minute medical tests. As part of the suspension, Correira says he must hold up his end of an agreement he signed with the California-based promotion before he would be licensed to fight anywhere else in the state again. That could be sometime in May.
