In the wake of Jones Injury, Arlovski recounts his injury stemming from Overeem
“Well, I’m not big on telling tales out of school, but there is some truth to these words. Couple of days ago I sparred with Overeem and learned such outcome by my own experience. Usually sparring partners don’t try to inflict a real damage to each other. But Overeem at one moment kneed me really hard in the stomach. In a real fight I could have been KO’ed after that”.

Is Ryan Bader a gatekeeper, and is that really such a bad thing?
The article highlights two points of view on the topic: Fowlkes: Danny, with his win over Ovince Saint Preux last night, it seems to me that Ryan Bader has become the very definition of a gatekeeper. The only people to beat him (aside from Tito Ortiz, who I still suspect might have been the beneficiary of a temporary gypsy curse) are those who are or have recently been champs (Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida), or those who end up fighting for a title on the strength of the win (Glover Teixeira). Everybody else hits the Bader wall and is swiftly repelled back down the rankings. And by swiftly I mean gradually, over the course of several rounds. Downes: I’m still not sold on the “not really an insult” part. When you tell a fighter they’re a gatekeeper, all they hear is you calling them mediocre. We know that’s not true, because Bader, Bisping, and others with that title can be in the top 10 in their division, but you’re never going to convince them of that. Fighters adopt a Ricky Bobby mentality: “If you ain’t first, you’re last.”

Despite the accolade, which puts Castillo in front of a hometown crowd, the 34-year-old fighter feels overlooked in his long MMA career.

How a tragic accident taught Jason Day the price of a dream
The last chapter of Jason Day's athletic career unexpectedly slammed shut on August 4, 2011. An ex-UFC middleweight who once battered Alan Belcher in his Octagon debut, the previous year had not been kind to Day. Just two months prior, he lost his third fight in as many tries, succumbing to a two-minute mugging at the hands of Francis Carmont at some small show in Ontario, Canada. His head wasn't in that one, he'd admit years later, but at least on this bright Vancouver afternoon, he was back home, the air was crisp, and the road was all that mattered. ----------------------------- Found this interesting since I live in BC and completely understand the level of BS that ICBC is all about. Feel pretty bad for Jason Day, but at least he has a bit of a silver lining here.
