Matt Lindland vs Vitor Belfort Likely for Affliction 2 for Title Belt


Tatame has all the details.

“It’ll be a great fight, we’ll see who is the best of the world there”, said Belfort, that guarantees his style will be a problem for Lindland. “I saw his fight with Negão and he’s a warrior... He comes be over you, but I don’t think he has the strength to stay over me”, analyzes Vitor, that wants another knockout on his career. “I’ll go to knock him out… My punches are well-aimed and when it hits he won’t stand”, guarantees Belfort.


Classic example of wrestler versus striker, I guess we'll see how Lindland's chin holds up and Vitor's takedown defense. Very strong addition to Affliction 2 to go along with Fedor vs Arlovski.

Quote of the Day: Jesse Ventura Says "MMA is Fake" on the Howard Stern Show


Taken from MarkFriggins.com write-up of Tuesday's Howard Stern show.

Howard talked to Jesse about fights that he's had before and if he's punched a guy out before. Jesse said that he doesn't believe the fights that are on TV. He said that fights on the street are over in 30 seconds and those TV fights last for 25 minutes. He said that they're working stiff as far as he's concerned.


This is just the absolute dumbest thing I've heard anywhere in a long time about our beloved sport.

Fedor Emelianenko vs Andrei Arlovski Set For October 11


Kevin Iole from Yahoo Sports has the scoop.

Fedor Emelianenko will defend his newly won World Association of Mixed Martial Arts heavyweight championship belt on Oct. 11 against Andrei Arlovski in the UFC’s backyard.

Affliction’s second MMA promotion will be at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus, in the shadow of the UFC’s corporate offices, according to a venue official.

Affliction made its promotional debut last Saturday at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., with Emelianenko submitting ex-UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia in just 36seconds.


This is some amazing news and a fight I've been wanting to see for a long time. Sambo vs. Sambo!

Quote of the Day: Tim Sylvia "I Don't Think Fedor is Human"


Fedor Emelianenko dispatched of former UFC Heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia in just 36 seconds at Affliction's inaugural MMA event on Saturday, "Affliction: Banned". The Russian Sambo king and former Pride Heavyweight champ attacked Tim Sylvia with a barrage of punches that sent Sylvia to the mat, then quickly taking his back and sinking in a rear-naked choke forcing a tap-out by Big Tim.

In the after-fight press conference Sylvia shared some of his thoughts on the fight.

"I know that I'm one of the best in the world," Sylvia said at the "Affliction: Banned" post-fight press conference. "I was amazed at how good Fedor is."

"[Emelianenko] hurt me right away and submitted me," Sylvia said. "The guy's a stud. I don't even think he's human."

"I'm human," Emelianenko said through an interpreter. "I get nervous just like the next person. But I just try for that not to affect me and just approach a fight in a calm manner."

"That guy hits hard," Sylvia said. "I've never been hit that hard before."

"I was definitely expecting there to be more of a feeling-out process," Sylvia said. "My manager says that it's good that [Emelianenko] did that because that means he gives me a lot of respect. He didn't want to go in there and play around. I guess I can kind of take that as a compliment."

"This guy is unreal," Sylvia said. "He's incredible, and I don't know if anybody's going to beat him for a while."


I thought it was an amazing display of hand speed by Fedor and a perfect performence to get U.S. fans interested in watching and learning more about him.

Lyoto Machida vs Thiago Silva Set for UFC 89


UFC.com has the scoop.

Unbeaten light heavyweight sensation Lyoto ‘The Dragon’ Machida (13-0) will look to keep the momentum going from his May victory over Tito Ortiz when he returns to the Octagon to face fellow unbeaten (and fellow Brazilian) Thiago Silva (13-0) in what should be an explosive clash on October 18th’s UFC 89 card at The National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.


I'm really looking forward to this fight, although I don't see Machida losing to anyone anytime soon, Thiago is a beast and could give him some trouble.

Quinton Rampage Jackson Arrested for Hit and Run


(Pic Props BlogSmithMedia)

Breaking news from Bloody Elbow.

Here the full scoop from TMZ.

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Quinton "Rampage" Jackson got busted just minutes ago, and is currently in custody on the way to the clink, but not before he was ordering on the ground, cops nearby with guns drawn.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Rampage was in a car crash near Newport Beach (that's near Laguna Beach in the O.C.) and then split the scene. Cops gave chase and eventually caught up and charged him with felony hit and run and felony evading arrest.

Here's the deal about the dumbest hit and run ever. Notice the truck he tried evading police in -- the one with the giant picture of him plastered on the side!

We're told there could be additional charges. No word yet on whether Rampage resisted arrest.


Jackson, the driver of a lifted, gray pick-up truck left crashed cars, shredded tires and sparks in his wake this afternoon when he led police on a short pursuit from the southbound 55 freeway exit onto Newport Boulevard where he hit at least three cars, police said.

The driver hit two cars at 19th Street and Newport Boulevard, then drove away at about 1:13 p.m., Lt. Paul Dondero said. A Costa Mesa police officer saw the driver southbound approaching 17th Street and tried to pull him over, police said. There, he hit at least one more car before continuing to run, now heading south toward the Balboa Peninsula, Dondero said. Some time after that, the truck blew a tire but continued to drive on its rims, Dondero said.

Quote of the Day: Mauricio Shogun Rua on Possible December Return


After a long layoff due to a ruptured ACL suffered in training for Chuck Liddell, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua weighs-in on a time-table for his return to the cage. He recently spoke with Tatame.

“My knee is very good, thanks to God. I was going to begin my hard train this week but I spoke to my doctor and he decides to make the exams this week. I have been doing Boxing and physical train, and I think next week I will return to the Jiu-Jitsu and gradually train more”

“I will train hard to face anyone. I had a defeat on my debut and I can’t choose my opponent. It is not settle yet, but I expect to return on December, it’s better for me”


Lets hope he comes back with a purpose, I would love to see a rematch with Forrest.

Quote of the Day: Lyoto Machida "I Think the UFC wants a Champion that Chuck Liddell can Beat"



Undefeated light heavyweight contender Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida was recently interviewed by TATAME News and had this to say about the light heavyweight title bout at UFC 86 between Forrest Griffin and Rampage Jackson.

"Look.. to me, Quinton beat Forrest, but they gave it to Forrest. I think the UFC wants a champion that Chuck Liddell can beat, so he can win the belt again.. he is an ex-champion, sells more and has more marketing."


Some strong words from The Dragon, who is looking for a title shot himself.

Rich Franklin vs Matt Hamill Set for UFC 88


MMA Rated first reported and more recently confirmed that Rich "Ace" Franklin will move up in weight to the 205lb light heavyweight division to face three-time NCAA Division III national wrestling champ and "The Ultimate Fighter 3" standout Matt Hamill.

Franklin makes the move after middleweight champ Anderson Silva, whom he was beaten badly by twice, made the same decision to move up to the light heavyweight division just a week or so ago. UFC 88: “Breakthrough” will take place at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA with a main event featuring Chuck Liddell vs Rashad Evans.

The 205lb. division, which was already stacked now has what many consider to be the best pound for pound fighter in the world in Silva and Franklin who many consider the best middleweight around besides Silva.

Jesse Taylor vs C.B. Dollaway Set for July 19th UFN 14


MMA Junkie has confirmed that "The Ultimate Fighter 7" runner-up C.B. Dollaway will take on show reject Jesse Taylor.

UFC President Dana White had mentioned that he would be willing to give Taylor a second chance after Taylor ruined his chances of winning TUF 7 by going on a drunken rampage in Palace Station, a casino owned by UFC owners Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta. Dollaway replaced Taylor in the finals after beating Tim Credeur, but lost a second time to show winner Amir Sadollah.

This is a fight that most watching the show would've predicted to be the final bout for who takes home the contract, but Amir Sadollah surprised by beating the former Arizona State wrestling standout twice, in the process giving him his first career loss.

Should be a good scrap.

MMA Quote of the Day- Quinton Jackson Comments on Forrest Griffin's Punching Power


In a new interview at UFC.com Rampage gives his thoughts on Forrest Griffin's punching power(or lack there of).

“I think the time off was well-needed,” he said. “I tore some ligaments in my hand (in the Henderson fight), I had three hard training camps in a row, plus the fight with Dan Henderson was really tough. I think my body needed that break and it showed in my training camp now. I came in feeling really good, and my body was well-rested – I just wish I hadn’t got so heavy. I don’t think about ring-rust, but if there is such a thing, Forrest will be the best guy to come back against because he’s got good skills, but he’s not a guy that’s gonna knock you out when you lag. I don’t think Forrest could knock out anybody. The last time I had a long layoff, I came back against Matt Lindland and he’s the worst guy to come back against after a nine month layoff and I did pretty well against him.”


I think Quinton knows that Forrest knocking him out is the most highly unlikely outcome of this fight and I would have to agree.
