Daniel Puder Q & A
Making the transition from professional wrestler to mixed martial artist is a very challenging task. With his near submission in a shoot match over Kurt Angle at a World Wrestling Entertainment show, Daniel Puder immediately made a big name for himself.

Old-School Event Sparks Backlash In Brazil
Rio Heroes, an MMA show in Brazil produced for a Brazilian website, is to hold its next event tonight and air it online for free. What makes it controversial is it's an "old-school" style event similar to UFC in its early days-no gloves, no time limit, and pretty much no rules. It sounds interesting because they are trying to make it like UFC originally was when it was bare-knuckle no-holds-barred fighting, but that's what's making it controversial in Brazil. But what really strikes me as well is the promoter says he's not promoting MMA, his events are street fights yet he claims he's trying to return MMA to its origins.
