(sherdog.com)
It seems that Melvin Manhoef's "retirement" was merely a break to recharge after losing to Gegard Mousasi in the DREAM MWGP. After just 2 months Manhoef will return to action, but not MMA yet-he has a kickboxing fight coming up at a K-1 event next month then another one in February.

It’s more than likely not a showdown with Nick Diaz or a rematch against Joachim Hansen … but it’s something.

Dave Herman wins yet again during “King of Kombat” main event
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
EliteXC-contracted heavyweight Dave Herman is not allowing ProElite’s recent demise to keep him idle. Competing on Saturday night for the Austin-based “King of Kombat” promotion, Herman headlined the show in a bout against former IFO heavyweight champion Chris Guillen. Guillen, who reportedly was originally set to face former UFC veteran Sam Hoger, was TKO’d by Herman just one minute and 32 seconds into the face after the referee called a stop to the fight while Herman was delivering unanswered strikes. The win improved Herman’s record to 13-0 with twelve of his victories coming by the way of finishes in the first round. After feasting on unproven competition in the Midwest, Herman taken a step up in competition in 2008 and is primed for a big campaign in 2009.

Bellator Fighting Championships releases details for ESPN Deportes show
(mmajunkie.com)
Bellator Fighting Championships today officially announced its launch and television partnership with ESPN Deportes, but the organization is making it very clear that its competition will, in no way, resemble your typical reality show. In today's press release, BFC executives promise "a business model unique in the fight industry, yet followed in every other major sport." BFC, which has opened offices in Los Angeles and Chicago, will feature a format in which title shots are awarded base strictly on advancing through the tournament -- and no other factors. "We are implementing a tournament structure to determine champions and No. 1 challengers so that world-class fighters can control their destiny based on their performance," stated Bellator founder and CEO Bjorn Rebney, a former "Friday Night Fights" executive. "Simply put, at Bellator, fighters fight their way to the title." The show, which debuts in April 2009, will feature 12 two-hour episodes that air on Saturday nights. The nationally televised events will feature a combination of tournament and non-tournament feature bouts. Eight competitors will comprise each of Belator's four divisional tournaments. The weight classes included featherweight (145 pounds), lightweight (155), welterweight (170) and middleweight (185). As Bellator fighters progress through the tournament, they earn substantially larger fight purses. Opening-round winners receive $25,000, semifinal-round winners receive $50,000, and finals winners receive $100,000. Each champion also gets $175,000. That's $350,000 in total for a champion who wins each round of the tournament.

New MMA promotion scheduled to announce launch later this week
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
A new promotion to be known as the World Cagefighting Alliance is scheduled to announce its planned launch later this week, FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned. Sources within the organization confirmed to us that the WCA plans to adopt the same business model as Strikeforce, with the notable exception that it will operate in the Northeastern corridor of the United States as opposed to the West Coast. WCA’s founders are looking to build up the East Coast MMA scene and take advantage of a void created by the demise of both the International Fight League and Elite Xtreme Combat, both of which promoted several major events in the Northeast region.

Antonio 'Rodrigo' Nogueira’s Protégé Readies for XFC LW Title Fight
(mmapayout.com)
Mixed Martial Arts superstar Antonio “Minotauro” Nogueira is the only man in MMA history to capture both the UFC and PRIDE heavyweight championships – and his renowned mastery of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu helped earn him the coveted position of team trainer on the current season of Spike TV’s hit series “Ultimate Fighter.” Nogueira’s MMA credentials are beyond dispute; he clearly understands the sport on a level few can approach, which lends his prognostications considerable weight. So when Antonio Nogueira claims that 9-2 Luis “Baboon” Palomino of Miami, Florida just might be MMA’s next great champion, it’s a prediction worth noting. “Luis had a pair of losses and didn’t really understand the intricacies of MMA before I began working with him,” said Nogueira, “which makes sense when you realize that he never competed as an amateur before turning pro. But the progress we’ve made at the Team Nogueira training facility in Miami is just incredible; his striking prowess and overall knowledge of Jiu-Jitsu grows almost daily. Luis is currently riding a five-fight winning streak, and despite our size difference, he’s the one fighter I always want to spar with whenever I’m preparing for a bout. He’s that good, and I’m proud to have him as my protégé.”

DEEP To Crown New Champ With LW Tourny
(mmaweekly.com)
DEEP recently announced several fights for their next event, DEEP 39, which will be headlined by a lightweight tournament. The winner of the tournament will be crowned the new DEEP lightweight champion. Former champion Pang Sung Hwan recently vacated the title. All eight participants for the tournament were named with several fights being announced for the tournament. Participants include former DEEP lightweight champion Nobuhiro Obiya, former DEEP welterweight champion Jutaro Nakao and DREAM veteran Daisuke Nakamura. Former DEEP lightweight champion Nobuhiro Obiya returns to action after a hiatus from fighting to take on DEEP veteran Yoshihiro “Barbaro44” Tomioka. UFC veteran and Pride veteran Jutaro Nakao faces off with touted Japanese prospect Katsunori Kikuno in the second tournament fight. In the last tournament fight, DEEP veteran Seigo Inoue faces off with fellow veteran Toshikazu “ISE” Iseno. That leaves two tournament participants without a fight in DREAM veteran Daisuke Nakamura and DEEP lightweight prospect Koichiro Matsumoto. Its not known whether they’ll end up facing each other as the last tournament fight or if one of the other fights will end being a reserve bout for the tournament.

Hose Pulls Out Of Starnes Fight
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Hawaiin middleweight Kala Kolohe Hose has pulled out his fight with ex-UFC fighter Kalib Starnes, which had been scheduled for tomorrow night. Speaking earlier today, Hose said that he has dropped out of the bout due to underhanded activity on the part of the promoters, Destiny MMA. “I signed a contract with Destiny that clearly stated the contest would be three three-minute rounds of mixed martial arts,” Hose explained. With most professional MMA bouts being three five-minute rounds, he said he “immediately questioned Destiny’s promoter about the shortened rounds”.

Promoter’s Spotlight: Maximum Fighting Championship
(mmapayout.com)
I have talked a lot on this website about mismanagement in MMA and have been somewhat vindicated by recent events within the industry. However, while I remain convinced that there is no need to panic, some are still sitting on the fence. As a result, I have set out to demonstrate that there is a right way of doing things in MMA and that there exist a host of successful organizations within North America. Thus, I present to you the first MMAPayout.com Promoter’s Spotlight on Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC). I was fortunate enough to sit down with the President of Maximum Fighting Championship, Mark Pavelich, to learn more about his fledging promotion.

Alessio-Daley to Collide at MFC 19 (**Now Confirmed**)
(mmaontap.com)
Former UFC and WEC welterweight title challenger John Alessio will reportedly take on rising British striker Paul Daley in a bout that will take place inside Mark Pavelich’s Maximum Fighting Championship on December 5 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada according to Sherdog.com. Both Alessio and Daley were connected to the demise of ProElite’s EliteXC brand earlier this month. Daley had fought on four separate occasions in different promotions under the ProElite banner while Alessio was in talks to sign with the company before opting to twice fight at Las Vegas-based “Night of Combat” events following his release from the WEC earlier this year. Alessio has won his last two fights since being disqualified for illegally kneeing Brock Larson at WEC 33 back in March. The Canadian submitted Pete Spratt in early summer and followed up by stopping fellow UFC veteran Gideon Ray with strikes on October 11.
