StrictlyMMA: K-1/Elite XC Dynamite Preview
Despite numerous card changes and the fact that FEG had trouble securing a promoters license, K-1/ Elite XC Dynamite will take place this Saturday. The card has been incredibly weakened from what was first rumored. Neither Josh Barnett nor Sergei Kharatinov will be participating. Gina Carano had to withdraw due to illness, which leaves the event without a women's match. Hong Man Choi was not medically cleared and is going to be replaced by Min Soo Kim. The latest changes occurred with Antonio Silva withdrawing from his fight against Jonathan Wiezorek and Choi Mu Bae withdrawing from his fight against "Mighty" Mo Siliga. However, the show's structure remains the same. Three fights will be shown on Showtime network and will be put on by Elite XC. This broadcast will lead into the Showtime PPV event. StrictlyMMA.com

Are Short Main Events Bad For MMA?
It seems the only people who think UFC 71 was a failure are the sort of mainstream national sports media columnists who never want to take a moment to learn something out of their wheelhouse, and wish mixed martial arts would simply go away. LINK

Dana White: We’re working on Fedor right now - News from the UFC 71 Post-Fight Press Conference
Performify here, back from UFC 71 with some pretty decent news to share from the UFC 71 post-fight press conference. Dana White opened the press conference by reporting that UFC 71 was a sellout with a crowd of 14,728 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena paying a gate of $4.3 million. This made it the second-biggest gate in UFC history, behind last December’s UFC 66 (Liddell vs. Ortiz II) which drew $5.1 million. He reported that the UFC knew they had a big event on their hands when “we had over 3000 people at the weigh ins.” LINK

Antonio Silva off K-1/EXC Dynamite card
credit: mmanews.com Benson Kane sent along the following: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE “Tim “Big Perm” Persey to Fight Jonathan Wiezorek at Dynamite USA” Replacing Antonio “Big Foot” Silva… (Los Angeles, CA ??" May, 30, 2007) On Saturday June 2, 2007, Tim “Big Perm” Persey will fight Jonathan Wiezorek in the Dynamite USA show at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Tim will replace Antonio Silva on the main card that will be featured on Showtime. No information has been made public why Antonio Silva will not be fighting. Tim is very excited about the opportunity to fight at home in Southern California and even more excited that he is fighting on the main card for Showtime. Both fighters have a strong wrestling background so this should be a pretty even match even though Tim is taking the fight on less than a weeks’ notice. Tim Persey fights out of No Limits Mixed Martial Arts & Fitness of Irvine California and is trained under Colin Oyama of Team Oyama. Tim has won six of his last seven fights including a KO of Bo Cantrell at the premier of Elite XC’s Destiny back in February of this year.
