Nick Diaz will NOT corner Nate
Nick Diaz will not be cornering his younger brother, Nathan Diaz, in what will surely be the biggest fight of Nathan's career. Nick, who is himself under a six month NSAC suspension, has been advised that due to his suspension he will not be able to secure a corner's license in Nevada. Jake Shields will now travel to Las Vegas to take over cornering duties. He will be joining Gilbert Melendez and Cesar Gracie in Nathan's corner. -Graciefighter.com

Clarification On The Rampage/Sakuraba Story
Mauro was Pride’s play-by-play announcer for several years and has a strong knowledge of how the company did business, as a result. He said there was a six-month period in Pride where fighters were offered bonuses if they lost via ref stoppage from strikes or a submission. The idea behind the bonus wasn’t to get fighters to take dives, but to entice them not to quit in order to make the fights more dramatic. The clause never served its intended purpose and that was it.

Roger Huerta - Still Hungry
The phone call came out of the blue, but given the way Roger Huerta’s career had taken off in the previous six months, nothing was going to be too surprising. When the UFC called, it was usually another interview, another photo shoot, another media tour. Huerta took the assignments gratefully, knowing that its things like this which make fighters into stars and that help educate people about the still-growing sport of mixed martial arts. LINK

Maynard Eager to 'Bully' the 155 Pound Division
Gray Maynard thought he was done when it came to competitive athletics. A three-time All-American wrestler for Michigan State, Maynard had fallen short of his dream of making the 2004 Olympic team, and after years of sacrifice, he was tired of the ‘other’ stuff that went along with being a top-flight wrestler, such as weight cutting.

Gamburyan’s Relentless Charge leads him to Vegas Saturday
Entering season five of The Ultimate Fighter reality show, most believed that at best, Manvel ‘Manny’ Gamburyan would possibly do enough to warrant an undercard bout on the season finale card, but nothing more. Few but the hardcore fans knew who he was, and at 5 foot 5, they figured that he was just too small to compete against the young guns of the 155-pound weight class.SOURCE

Size Matters.
Gas up the DeLorean and revisit 2002. The UFC (and by extension, mixed martial arts) was watching its vital signs emit only the occasional burp of vitality. Link.

Krazy Horse In The Bing...Not Looking Good
Well, Krazy Horse got himself locked up last week, with multiple parole violations. Gary Shaw has been trying to "spring" him, but it's not looking good. There was no bail set, and Charles Bennett is currently locked up. If Shaw can't get him on a plane by 10:30 am tomorrow for the weigh-ins then the fight is off, with Edson Berto pencilled in to replace the Horse. I personally was looking forward to seeing Joe Boxer vs Krazy Horse, it would've been a war, maybe in the future. SOURCES: SHERDOG.COM................MMANEWS.COM

Report: Serra vs. Hughes to Headline November Event in New Jersey
UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra (8-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) will make his first-ever title defense against former champ Matt Hughes (41-5 MMA, 15-3 UFC) at a November pay-per-view event in New Jersey — not at The Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale. LINK

Preview of Shamrock v. Baroni
"For Shamrock, a win over someone like Baroni, not considered top 10 at MW, but certainly someone that is a game fighter, would go a long way towards reestablishing his reputation. It wouldn’t fully cement Shamrock as top of the food-chain, but it would answer a lot of the remaining questions." HERE

Frank Shamrock vs. Phil Baroni on June 22
This Friday in San Jose, former UFC middleweight champ and MMA legend Frank Shamrock takes on Phil Baroni in a fight that has been building up for close to a year now. The two fighters square off for the vacant Strikeforce middleweight belt (in an event co-promoted by EliteXC), but a shot at the title seems to be the least interesting aspect of the fight. HERE

New Five Star Radio
There was so much this week that one show would not suffice, so days before Mike heads to San Jose for Strikeforce, he sits down and previews both that show and the TUF 5 Finale. Plus, we even have a segment on all the world of Japanese pro wrestling and the reading of hate mail~! Five Star Radio is the best MMA related show on the internet today, so says a gay Irishman! Really, can you beat praise like that? Best of all, this one is free so listen, love it, and spread the word. HERE
