Cage Rage 26 Weigh-Ins Freeman V Cahoon
BIRMINGHAM, England – All fighters have made weight for Cage Rage 26: Extreme, the first venture outside of London for the venerable British promotion. Ian Freeman appears in amazing shape that belies his 41 years, looking like a fighter of half his age. He squares off with Paul Cahoon in Saturday night’s main event. Ross Pointon stepped on the scales looking fresh and ready to go by virtue of correct diet and heavy cardio work leading up to the event. Ross Mason by contrast, undertook his usual heavy sauna routine to step on the scales on weight. Card: -Ian Freeman (205lbs/93kg) vs. Paul Cahoon (200.6lbs/91kg) -Che Mills (169.7lbs/77kg) vs. Marios Zaromskis (169lbs/76.7kg) -Rodney Faverus (204.1lbs/92.7kg) vs. James Zikic (202.7lbs/92kg) -Ross Mason (169.7lbs/77kg) vs. Ross Pointon (169.7lbs/77kg) -Mark Epstein (185lbs/84kg) vs. Matt Ewin (184.2lbs/83.6kg) -Henrique Nogueira (200.6lbs/91kg) vs. Marc Goddard (205lbs/93kg) -Paul Reed (145lbs/65.8kg) vs. Brad Pickett (145lbs/65.8kg) -Kev Simms (240.2lbs/109kg) vs. Popek Rak (228.1lbs/103.5kg) -Chris Rice (184.5lbs/83.7kg) vs. Edgelson Lue (180.7lbs/82kg) -Harvey Harra (154.3lbs/70kg) vs. Garry Kelly (154.3lbs/70kg)
Hardcore Championship Fighting Done
Hardcore Championship Fighting is officially out of business, CEO Keith Crawford has informed Sherdog.com. The news comes after a period of great optimism for the Canadian organization. HCF was expected to announce this week that it had been purchased -- a move that Crawford hoped would put the promotion among the few legitimately vying for the No. 2 spot behind the UFC.
Pele wants revenge
Jose “Pele” Landi has been recovering speedily from one of the ugliest injuries ever seen in MMA, and is already venturing some light training. “I’m training light in Jiu-Jitsu and boxing, but I’m limited due to this serious injury. I think my recovery has been coming along well, but I have to be careful. It’s still recent, only two months now, but I think in one month I’ll be able to fight again,” he declared to GRACIEMAG.com. The muay thai ace, and one of the first big names in the sport in Brazil, suffered two fractures at once in his leg in a fight in the Canadian event TKO against Brian Gassaway in February of last year. The accident came about as a result of the wear from many years of training. Born in Cuba, but growing up in Brazil, Pele does not yet have a date to return to the ring, but the moment he suffered the injury has still not left his head. “You could see I actually broke it before kicking. You can see right after the second round begins I did a front kick that didn’t connect and then when I put my foot down the peronio was already broken, then after that my tibia breaks,” he recalls. Considering the final result unfair, the fighter already has it in his head what he wants as his career unfolds: revenge. “I wanted it considered a No Contest and them to grant me a revenge match. He (Brian Gassaway) was losing. I hope TKO re-watches the fight and does what’s right. I think if the referee had seen it he wouldn’t give my opponent the win,” he said in closing.
Pe de Pano to fight at Sengoku 3
Not having stepped in a ring since June of 2007, when he defeated Rafael Feijão in the IFL, Marcio “Pe de Pano” Cruz has been getting back to peak form for a triumphal return, possible at Sengoku 3, on June 8th. Even knowing from the start he would be working for the Japanese event organized by World Victory Road, the black belt does not yet know his opponent, since the show’s promoters have been having a hard time finding opponents for the Brazilian. While he waits, the twice absolute Jiu-Jitsu world champion has been training hard with his team (Gracie Fusion) to get ready and get back on track in MMA and position himself among the best in the world. “The fight will possibly take place at the next event (Sengoku 3) on June 8th. The problem is that they haven’t yet found me an opponent, they were trying, trying and haven’t managed to. I know some guys didn’t accept the fight with me. Not having an opponent yet doesn’t change much in training, what matters is that I’m in shape,” said the fighter to GRACIEMAG.com.

"He has fought in every major event in the world and competed for countless titles, including the UFC heavyweight title. He comes into the event having won 18 of his last 20 bouts and is looking to prove Russow is not yet ready for the big time. "Russow, on the other hand, has been crushing opposition and has been tested twice in major events... losing to then No. 6 ranked Sergei Kharitonov in Pride, then crushing Roman Zentzov in Japan's Yarennoka event last New Years Eve. He's ready to show he should be considered among the world's best." Tickets for the event can be purchased at the Sears Centre Box Office, online at www.searscentre.com or by calling 1-888-SEARSTIX.

DREAM fight in Jeopardy for Nick Diaz
Nick Diaz's DREAM bout is very much in jeopardy. Diaz was given the go ahead by EliteXC for a April 29th fight against Marcelo Garcia in Dream, however when that fight was scrapped, Dream decided to instead have Diaz fight on their May 11th show. Unfortunately no one at Dream shared this information with EliteXC and EliteXC President, Gary Shaw, only learned of the change via the internet 2 days ago. With Diaz having been scheduled to fight in Hawaii on June 14th, Shaw finds the new May 11th date perilously close to the Showtime card and has therefore nixed Diaz's participation on the Dream card. Unless Shaw has a change of heart this fight will be a no go.

Jake O'Brien finds a new home
California-based, Palace Fighting Championship (PFC) has announced the signing of recently released UFC heavyweight Jake O'Brien. O'Brien was undefeated with a 10-0 record until his loss to Andrei Arlovski at UFC 82. He was subsequently released by the UFC a month ago. What does PFC president Christian Printup have to say about his most recent signing? "We are very excited to bring in one of the most promising young heavyweights in the country," swooned El Presidente "He's proven himself at the sports highest level... Jake is a great wrestler with solid boxing skills. A lot of people haven't seen that, but we want to put him in some fights where he can show it." Why the UFC cut a 10-1 fighter from the weakest division they have is beyond me, but hey they got Lesnar vs. Coleman so that's... something.
