UFC in… Belfast?
link Well the reasons for UFC 72 to be in Belfast are there, but you can bet the security forces will be in place too. Lots of Northern Irlanders drinking and watching combat is a recipe for a rough night if you’re on duty. But it’s not likely to be anything they haven’t seen at a football match. In any case the rumored date is June 16 with the possible return of the popular Brandon Vera, who’s been under the radar for some time while contract and managerial details were settled.

Historic First MMA Event Scheduled for Washington DC
link It was only a matter of time! While states like Nevada and California have long seen mixed martial arts as a valid offering and a way to earn income, there are still notable holdouts in major states’ acceptance of the sport. New York has yet to give the green light to MMA, though it’s expected to soon, as Washington DC has recently. To wit, the first ever mixed martial event in Washington DC will be held May 12th at the DC Armory, after the DC Boxing & Wrestling Commission adopted the unified rules for MMA earlier this year. The event will offer fighters from Chute Boxe, American Top Team, and others, including fighters from local stand out BJJ organizations like Team Balance’s Tim Carpenter and Yamasaki’s Ron Foster.

UFC Quick Quote: Serra doesn’t like two Miletich boys
link “Matt Hughes is an arrogant asshole, jerkoff and bully. He wouldn’t pull the same shit with me that he did to Georges (St. Pierre) on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) because he knows I’d tell him to go **** himself.” – UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra had some choice words on BubbaTheLoveSponge.com for Matt Hughes today, who will most likely be his first title defense later this year, according to recent statements from UFC President Dana White. He also called Hughes’ training partner, Tim Sylvia, an ogre who thinks he is a big shot. In addition, Serra ripped on Sylvia for his appearance on Blind Date a few years ago.

Uncertain futures for PRIDE fighters
link Nikkan Sports has a headline grabber today, claiming that Hidehiko Yoshida will fight at 205 pounds in the future (for a run at the UFC Light Heavyweight division). The article claims that Yoshida’s 5/20 Saitama Super Arena fight will be preparation for him fighting in UFC later this Summer. Daily Sports has an article claiming that Josh Barnett may work for the IGF 6/29 Ryogoku debut show. From what I have been told directly, Barnett’s status right now as a fighter is in limbo. He is waiting for any and all offers. He has not been contacted by Zuffa in relation to the ‘new’ PRIDE.

Striking in Boxing and MMA
link As Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) skyrockets in popularity, the resistance of mainstream media outlets (Sports Illustrated and ESPN) has historically probably been due to a fear of pro-wrestling combined with old-school boxing writers lack of understanding. Boxing writers love boxing; and they often feel, correctly, that MMA fighters usually aren’t the best boxers.
