Jason MacDonald Returns At MFC 22: Payoff on September 25
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
Following his release from the UFC, “The Athlete” Jason MacDonald has recently confirmed that his next bout outside of the Octagon will be taking place on extremely familiar territory. MacDonald made a name for himself with Canada’s MFC promotion, fighting a total of ten times under the MFC banner before being scooped up by the UFC in 2006 where he ended up going 5-5 with the organization before back to back losses to Wilson Gouveia and Nate Quarry brought upon his departure. Considering the history it only seems fitting that MacDonald will make his return on his old stomping grounds at MFC 22: Payoff on September 25. His opponent has yet to be determined, but according to MacDonald, it’s him against everyone as far as he’s concerned.

Arlovski vs. Rogers added to June 6 Strikeforce event
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will step in for injured Strikeforce heavyweight titleholder Alistair Overeem against Team Bison member Brett “The Grim” Rogers at “Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields” on June 6. Overeem has pulled out of the fight with a hand injury. The Fight Network learned of the heavyweight contest from sources close to both fighters. Rogers (9-0) is coming off a second-round TKO win over Abongo Humphrey at “Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz” on April 11. A veteran of the now-defunct Elite Xtreme Combat organization, Rogers boasts wins over heavyweight sluggers Jon Murphy and James Thompson. Arlovski (15-6), meanwhile, has not seen action since challenging Fedor Emelianenko for the WAMMA heavyweight title at “Affliction: Day of Reckoning” on January 24. Training under Freddie Roach, one of boxing’s most highly acclaimed coaches, the Belarussian hopes to rebound from a first-round knockout against “The Last Russian Emperor” and move one step closer to putting gold back around his waist. “The Pitbull,” who will be making his first appearance for the California-based Strikeforce promotion, was initially rumored to make his professional boxing debut in the aftermath of the loss to Emelianenko. But Arlovski is now set to return to his mixed martial arts roots against the less experienced Rogers. A former UFC heavyweight champion, Arlovski has recorded wins over Roman Zentsov, Vladimir Matyushenko, Wesley Correira, Tim Sylvia, Paul Buentello, Fabricio Werdum, Ben Rothwell and Roy Nelson throughout his 10-year career. The winner of this fight will likely go on to challenge heavyweight kingpin Overeem for the title later this year.

Matyushenko decisions Lambert at Call To Arms
(sherdog.com)
ONTARIO, Calif. –- Vladimir Matyushenko wrestled his way to a unanimous decision over Jason Lambert in the light heavyweight main event for Clean Kill’s Call To Arms at the Citizen’s Business Bank Arena. Matyushenko took the cards with scores of 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28. In an active first round, the UFC veterans kept mostly to their shared bread-and-butter discipline, which led to some feverish pummeling scrambles for control. Both connected with strikes in their brief exchanges, but Matyushenko excelled with peppering shots in the clinch. The determined Belarusian threw body shots and looping hooks in the second, before scooping Lambert up for the takedown. Lambert (23-10) did his best to pull off a guillotine attempt, but the pair was back on their feet in short fashion. Matyushenko (22-4) snuck in another takedown for good measure before the bell. Lambert nailed a crucial takedown at the top of third round, and nearly took advantage with a flurry of shots that had referee Larry Landless hovering. However, Matyushenko mustered a reversal and a final takedown in the last two minutes to secure victory.

New British Promotion Headed Straight To UK TV
(mmaweekly.com)
Bravo Television is a tempting proposition for any Mixed Martial Arts promotion in the U.K., as it presents a unique opportunity to reach a wider viewing audience as well having a background in UFC programming. In short, Bravo understands the sport. So when it was originally announced that Bravo was considering MMA in its programming schedule, the promotions started to take note, most of all the British Fighting Championship and Ultimate Challenge. The reality is that neither show will be featured on Bravo and that a new tournament based format show will emerge in its place. Starting on June 28, BAMMA will be running its first event on Bravo, a fight card featuring three tournaments across the lightweight, middleweight and light heavyweight categories and will be fought with the winners moving onto a place in the finals.

A Blood Called Shooto
(sherdog.com)
Nearly 25 years ago, Japanese professional wrestler Satoru Sayama -- better known as the original Tiger Mask -- had an idea about fighting, the seed of Shooto. The first-ever amateur Shooto event was held in 1986, while 1989 marked the first-ever occasion of “professional Shooting.” All mixed martial arts observers know of Greek Pankration -- and the more modern tradition of Brazilian vale tudo -- but Shooto has the longest lineage of any single combat sports entity in contemporary MMA. Fittingly, that lineage will be celebrated this Sunday in Tokyo, when leading Shooto promoter Sustain stages its 20th anniversary event. “Shooto” is an intriguing concept, its definition varying depending on who you ask. Although Sayama left the world of Shooto in 1986, his original vision is adhered to by authorities who view Shooto not as an organization but as an international sport unto itself, with its own system and rules, taking place from Japan to Australia to Brazil to Belgium and beyond. For some MMA fans, following Shooto is proof of fanaticism about the sport and, for others, an unfathomable hobby for MMA elitists. One thing that is readily clear, however, is that those who are passionate about Shooto have an intensity about it that is completely incongruous with how most people celebrate other MMA entities. Even in the heyday of UFC-versus-Pride debacles, debates raged over extrinsic qualities of aesthetic production values, roster quality and fighter purses.

British Fighting Championship Dead In The Water

The British Fighting Championship was all set to debut next weekend in Nottingham, England following months of turbulent business negotiations in the current economic climate. The proposition was enticing with Grand Prix tournaments in each weight class planned to run over the course of the year to determine an eventual champion in each – with it the prospects of an international springboard onto the big stage… unfortunately, as of Tuesday afternoon, the BFC is stillborn.
