André Galvão Next Fight In November
(tatame.com)
Two times BJJ world champion, André Galvão showed his skills on his MMA debut, after submitting Jeremiah Metcalf on the second round, after being knocked down twice on the first. Getting ready for his next fight, Galvão will be at Colloseo Championship Fighting, at November 28th, to face Jared Bussemakers, who did three fights in professional MMA. “I already signed the contract. I saw something on the internet and I think he (Jared) is from Jiu-Jitsu, he won fights by submission and, when lost, it was by knockout, I think. I’m getting ready and will be on my best for this fight”, said André, who’ll fight at welterweight division. With an undoubtedly superior ground game, Galvão won’t go to the fight thinking it’ll be easy to do his BJJ. “I believe he’s from BJJ, but he can surprise me… I’m training a lot Muay Thai, Boxing, BJJ and submission… I’m starting now in MMA and I don’t wanna underestimate nobody”.

Bryson Kamaka out as opponent vs. Jay Hieron for Night of Combat II after drug test failure
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
A source has notified FiveOuncesOfPain.com that Bryson Kamaka has tested positive for marijuana and that the Nevada State Athletic Commission will not allow him to fight as scheduled vs. Jay Hieron during Saturday night’s “Night of Combat II” at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. There is still a chance that Hieron, the first and only welterweight champion of the IFL, still may compete on tomorrow’s show. Event organizers are said to be scrambling for a replacement opponent for Kamaka and area fighter Chris Kennedy could be tapped to fight Hieron. As a result of Kamaka’s test failure, he will be subject to a fine and suspension by NSAC.

Kalib Starnes returns to action against Kala “Kolohe” Hose in Hawaii
(promma.info)
UFC veteran and TUF 3 cast member, Kalib Starnes will be stepping back into the MMA ring on November 15 where he will be fighting the Icon Middleweight Champion, Kala “Kolohe” Hose in Hawaii on the Destiny MMA organization’s main event. Starnes’ last fight in the UFC was back in April of this year when he fought Nate Quarry at UFC 83 in one of the most “interesting” fights in MMA history. Starnes’ technique and gameplan frustrated Quarry to the point he started coming at Starnes with one arm outstretched and one hand covering his face in a mocking gesture. Quarry was able to pull off a unanimous decision despite the unorthodox styles shown by both fighters. Starnes’ opponent on November 15th will be the pride of Hawaii, Kala Hose, whose most notable win was against Phil Baroni back in March in an Icon Sport Middleweight Title fight where he TKO’d the New York Badass early in the fifth round and won the vacant title. Hose’s most recent fight was in August where he defended his Icon belt against Rolando Dominique in a second round TKO victory.

Ricardo Arona heads back to RINGS; gives Wandy the hat trick
(tatame.com)
Quoteworthy: “Quinton is a great fighter, but only when he’s doing well in the fight. When he fights someone like me or Wanderlei he doesn’t like it, tries the takedowns and gets lost. Wanderlei needs to do the same gameplan, doesn’t need to change anything. Quinton has a ******* hand, if he hits you, you’ll feel it, but it’s the perfect game for Wanderlei.” – Light heavyweight standout Ricardo Arona, who is scheduled to return to the Japanese mixed martial arts promotion RINGS in 2009, weighs in on Wanderlei Silva vs Quinton Jackson III for UFC 92 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 27. The Brazilian knows a thing or two about both men, having competed against them back in PRIDE FC.

Eddie Bravo: "The Game Has Changed"
(tinyurl.com)
"A lot of fighters wanted to sit in half guard and pound them and rain elbows, but never try and pass the guard. When you have that kind of attitude, you're only going to get so far. Your game is going to be so limited and you're going to win some and lose some; you're going to bat .500 and not get very far."

TAYLOR DEFEATS FICKETT AT TOTAL COMBAT
(mmaweekly.com)
Thursday night, Sycuan Ringside Promotions in association with Total Combat Entertainment presented Total Combat "Notorious" from the Sycuan Resort & Casino near downtown San Diego, Calif. The Utlimate Fighter season 7 finalist Jesse Taylor and Drew Fickett squared off in the main event in front of a sell-out crowd of 2,800. From the start, Taylor had Fickett on his heels which would lead to a quick take down. Once on the ground, Taylor landed heavy shots to Fickett’s head, one of which opened a two-inch gash on his forehead just above his right eye. Taylor would continue to land shots while Fickett tried to block the assault. The referee stopped the barrage at the 1:42 mark of the first round awarding Taylor the victory via TKO. In the co-main event, Ian McCall of Laguna Nigel, Calif. won a unanimous decision against San Diego-native Kevin Dunsmoor in a three round bantamweight bout.

Broken arm healed, John Alessio hopes for less costly "Night of Combat"
(mmajunkie.com)
A broken arm in the course of an MMA bout is never a positive experience. But as Xtreme Couture fighter John Alessio (23-11) proved in his June bout with Pete Spratt at Superfights MMA's inaugural "Night of Combat," it doesn't always mean a loss. Alessio recounted the experience while an in-studio guest on Wednesday's episode of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). Alessio said the reason Spratt was able to inflict the injury was simple. "That bastard can kick hard, man," Alessio admitted. In that bout, a first round flurry by Spratt put Alessio on the defensive. Alessio did his best to evade the onslaught, but ended up ducking into a Spratt kick. Alessio's attempt to block the strike caused the fracture. While Alessio said he knew right away that his arm was broken, the thought of conceding never crossed his mind.

Baroni Decisions Alfonso at PFC 10
(mmaontap.com)
Phil Baroni extended his undefeated streak in the welterweight division Friday night, winning an unanimous decision over former WEC mainstay Olaf Alfonso at Palace Fighting Championship’s “Explosive” event at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California. Baroni overcame a tough first round in which he suffered a cut under his left eye to control Alfonso over the next two rounds. He used crisp combinations in timely takedowns to keep Alfonso off-balance and hand him his first loss of the year. The event also featured three separate championship bouts: Bryan Travers defeated Jeremiah Metcalf via unanimous decision to claim the vacant PFC welterweight title, Shawn Klarcyk submitted Brandon Miller to retain his PFC bantamweight crown and Brian Cobb coasted to an easy decision win over David Gardner to remain the PFC’s lightweight champion.

Angry Jorge Masvidal seeks to erase defeat at Sengoku 5
(mmajunkie.com)
A controversial loss can sometimes become a motivating factor for a fighter. Such is the case with Jorge Masvidal (13-3), who will aim to erase the frustration of a June loss to Rodrigo Damm. He returns this weekend at World Victory Road's fifth "Sengoku" event. While a guest on a recent episode of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), Masvidal explained how that controversial loss has impacted his career. "A lot of angry training, man," Masvidal said of his recent camp. "I'm still mad about my last fight. A lot of angry training." In that "Sengoku: Third Battle" affair, Masvidal suffered a flash knockdown. Alhough stunned, Masvidal looked to be retaining guard on his opponent. Unfortunately for "Gamebred," the referee felt differently and halted the contest despite Masvidal being clearly awake.

Gilbert Melendez planning to return in 2008
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez has had a difficult year. He lost two of his three fights - one to Mitsuhiro Ishida and another to Josh Thomson. Those were the first two losses of his MMA career. Now, Melendez is preparing to get back in the cage in the not-so-distant future. “You’ll see me before the end of the year,” said Melendez, “I have a lot to improve in the meantime so you’ll see a much better fighter the next time out.” At only 26, it is not far-fetched to believe that Melendez will quickly get back into the rankings as one of the best lightweights in the world. He hopes that will happen with his current organization although he stopped short of guaranteeing it. “I have one fight left with Strikeforce, and I like them a lot,” Melendez said, “Maybe they’ll be in my future, but we’ll have to see.”

Scratches are also visible on his forehead and neck, but Cro Cop was in the mood for a short chat and said that he was upset that the match had to be stopped because he was sure that his chance would come if they were to resume.
