Takanori Gomi claims non-title win over Shooto champ Takashi Nakakura
(mmajunkie.com)
Takanori Gomi rebounded from recent back-to-back losses and picked up his first knockout win via strikes in two-and-a-half years with a victory over Takashi Nakakura earlier today at Shooto's latest event, "The Final Tradition." Gomi (30-5) stopped Shooto star Takashi Nakakura (11-3-1) and snapped his five-fight win streak with the second-round TKO. It was a must-win fight for Gomi, who was once arguably the world's top lightweight fighter.

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
(mmaweekly.com)
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.

Chris Horodecki to put past behind while preparing for "Fight Force"
(mmajunkie.com)
For nine-time IFL veteran Chris Horodecki (12-1), the past year has been a series of unfortunate incidents. His former employer folded. An injury then forced him out of a scheduled bout with Dan Lauzon at January's "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" at the last possible second. But as "The Polish Hammer" now prepares for a June bout with William Sriyapai (12-4) at "Fight Force: Ultimate Chaos" in Biloxi, Miss., the 21-year-old looks to move on from those setbacks.

Kyle Maynard Loses Unsanctioned MMA Debut
(mmaweekly.com)
Kyle Maynard, a congenital amputee that garnered much attention for his successes in wrestling and submission grappling, was unsuccessful in his mixed martial arts debut on Saturday night. Maynard lost a unanimous decision to Bryan Fry in an unsanctioned bout in Auburn, Ala., according to an Associated Press report. Despite initial plans to the contrary, Maynard did not wear gloves during the fight, which was apparently due to high levels of humidity in the arena making them difficult to secure to his shortened limbs. Without gloves, Maynard was not allowed to throw punches during the bout, although Fry, wearing gloves, was allowed to punch.
