‘Shogun’ Rua won’t rule out moving down to middleweight
Mauricio Rua may follow fellow Brazilian Lyoto Machida to the middleweight division.
Following back-to-back losses inside the Octagon, "Shogun" revealed that he could cut some
pounds to "restart" his career at the middleweight weight class. The former light heavyweightchampion takes on James Te-Hunaon Dec. 7 in Australia, and that
could be his last fight at 205.
Todd Duffee Recovering from Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, Hopes to Fight Within a Year
The pain woke Todd Duffee in the middle of the night.
“It felt like somebody stabbing me in my back,” he told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “I kind of freaked out. Should I go to the ER? What do I do? It was that kind of pain. I just couldn’t move. I could kind of lift my shoulder to a certain extent, but I couldn’t use my hand fully. I could like pulse it, but I couldn’t close it. I couldn’t pick up anything with it or anything like that.”
Rousey: "I could beat Cain Velasquez under the right circumstances."
UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey recently spoke with Spanish-language daily Hoy newspaper and said that, under the right circumstances, she believes that she could beat heavyweight king Cain Velasquez.
"In any given moment, under the right circumstance, I think it is possible," Rousey said of beating Velasquez when asked if she thought she could.
"You cannot tell me that it is physically impossible. It is possible that in any given moment that I could beat him. I simply believe in my possibilities."
The Olympic judo bronze medalist never seems to lack in confidence but her assertion that she could beat Velasquez despite giving up about a hundred pounds in weight, might seem over the top. Before you're quick to criticize "Rowdy" Ronda as delusional, however, remember that competitive fighting is necessarily an audacious practice.
