UFC Belfast card filling in
link UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva has confirmed three undercard matchups for UFC 72 June 16 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The card is headlined by former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin. As rumored, Hector Ramirez stands as Forrest Griffin’s first challenge since his TKO loss to Keith Jardine. On a card headlined by the architect of his last loss, Jason ”The Athlete” MacDonald will face TUF 3 alumnus Rory Singer. In what Silva described as "the best fight of the night", Tyson Griffin and Clay Guida will tussle in the lightweight division. Tuesday the UFC confirmed Danish kickboxer Martin Kampmann as Franklin’s opponent in the main event. At the UFC 70 post-fight press conference, Dana White commented that Kampmann is "a tough, up-and-coming guy. That's why we've got him fighting Rich. This is a tough fight for Rich." Welterweight Marcus Davis has also said, “Yeah, I’ll be fighting in Ireland.” Luke Cummo has been rumored a possible opponent for Davis. Lightweight fighter Dustin Hazelett, from Jorge Gurgel’s Academy, is also rumored to be on the Belfast card.

No Limits event
link IRVINE, Calif., April 21 -- No Limits MMA, in conjunction with Pro Elite, held "Proving Ground" Saturday evening, the first card in the Orange County gym's new event center. Although a few of the evening's matchmaking choices left many people scratching their heads, it's hard to argue against a night of fights during which only three matches even made it past the two-minute mark. The evening's main event pitted BJJ black belt Fabio Nacimiento against 23-year-old Millenia Jiu Jitsu student Ray "Lights Out" Lazama. It was hard to shake the feeling that this fight was set up for the No Limits fighter to walk away with a win in his home gym. Unfortunately for him, Lazama is one tough, scrappy kid and showed up intent on spoiling the party. The two exchanged pretty evenly on the feet, but with a minute remaining in the round Lazama landed a nice shot that drove Nacimiento against the ropes. With one last flurry Lazama dropped Nacimiento and forced referee Nelson "Doc" Hamilton to intervene. In a rematch from a Nov. 2006 bout that saw John Cronk get stopped by Mexican fighter Jorge "The Naked Man" Ortiz, history seemed doomed to repeat itself. This affair lasted 103 seconds before referee John Schorle stepped in to stop the fight. Bao Quach offered the crowd the knockout of the night with his minute and a half stoppage of Rex Payne. The Colin Oyama-trained fighter delivered a right hand that landed flush, putting Payne down and racking up yet another win for the No Limits team. Full Results Ray Lazama def. Fabio Nacimiento KO 4:19 R1 Jorge Ortiz def. John Cronk TKO (strikes) 1:43 R1 Bao Quach def. Rex Payne KO 1:34 R1 Takumi Nakayama technical draw Anthony McDavitt (stopped due to eye poke) 1:23 R1 Tim Persey def. Brandon Quigley KO 0:24 R1 Albert Rios def. Randy Bowers submission (rear-naked choke) 2:42 R2 Shane Del Rosario def. Gilberto Carreto TKO (strikes) 1:19 R1 Pete Sabala def. Tyler Weathers submission (guillotine choke) 1:15 R2

UFC 70 Observations
link A few thoughts from last night's show: Dana White said recently that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's first UFC fight would be against a big-name opponent this summer. Could he be reconsidering after seeing two of his most marketable fighters get beaten badly by underdogs this month? Upsets make for exciting fights, but is it bad business to have the title belts changing hands as often as they do in the WWE? In 13 MMA fights, Michael Bisping has only once gone to the third round. And he's never gone to the judges cards. 13-0. Nine knockouts and four submissions. Before last night's Nyquil in Fight Form, Andrei Arlovski had only once gone to the judges in his career. In Arlovski's defense, it's hard to blame a fighter for exercising caution, even at the expense of fan boredom. It's a sport where one unlucky punch can wreak havoc on a career. Though the UFC officials say they'd rather see someone fight hard and lose than be cautious and win, they aren't the ones getting punched in the head. And at the end of the day, the win-loss column is the important thing. If it weren't, we'd see Tank Abbott fight every month. There were a lot of commercials during last night's show, but hey, it was free. The Couture-Gonzaga fight might sell better than some people think. The advantage of having your hot new star brutally knocked out on free TV is that lots of people saw it and might be curious as to how Captain America will deal with a monster like Gonzaga. And that was a brutal KO. One of the worst since Tank nearly decapitated Steve Nelmark. By the way, Randy looked huge last night. Was that a bad-fitting suit or has he bulked up? UFC 70: Updates and Fallout A few notes from around the web: UFC 70 drew more than 14,000 fans, with a live gate of $2.6 million, the third-highest in UFC history. "We are doing this fight in the U.K. and then we’re going to do a fight in Ireland and from there we’ll be expanding into Spain, Italy and Germany," Dana White tells the media. More at UFC Junkie. Gabriel Gonzaga says he went into the Cro-Cop fight looking for a knockout. "I was looking for the opportunity and took it," Sherdog reports. Cro-Cop's knee and ankle aren't damaged as badly as first thought. There are some injured ligaments but "It's nothing to worry about," Cro-Cop told Croation media. Source: UFC Mania. Dana White says the Couture-Gonzaga fight is marketable. "Our job now is to sell Couture-Gonzaga," he said. "I can do it." Michael Bisping admits he never saw the knee that knocked him to the ground in the second round of his fight against Elvis Sinosic. "I was like, 'What the **** was that,'" he says

CC short interview
http://index.hr/sport/clanak/redir/344730.asp Translation: Only one day after brutal and humiliating KO by Gabriel Gonzaga in Manchester, Mirko Cro Cop came back to Zagreb. Several of his friends, members of the special forces, were waiting for him at the airport. As soon as he got out of the terminal, walking with a limp, reporters gathered around him to hear his opinion on last night's fight, the fifth loss of Mirko's career. Although just 10 hours passed from the KO, Mirko was calm and collected, and if it wasn't for the visible limp, you could never guess it was the same man who lied unconscious last night in the UFC cage. "The fight went the same way I fought it, I didn't deserve any better", analyzed Mirko and continued: "That's seems to be the cross I'm carrying, I fall down every once in a while, I don't know why. I've been two times through such crisis, against Randleman and I came back, against Fedor and I came back. I'll come back after this again. It's part of my carrer, so I should handle it." It didn't take long since last night's defeat for speculations to arise whether Gonzaga's hick-kick ended Mirko's career aswell. But to our question whether he'll continue fighting after this Cro Cop answered: "Of, course, I will fullfil the contract, I have 4 more fights to go." After this short statement Mirko entered his car. Before anything, it's time to recover, and after that he'll start thinking about his next opponent. cheers

Bisping Beats up Elvis... Elvis leaves the Building Bloodied
link "... a little less conversation a little more action". Well, that was a piece of Elvis Presley's song and also a piece of Elvis Sinosic's entrance song that just about says it all as those few words were all the foreshadowing needed to see where this fight with Michael "The Count" Bisping and Elvis Sinosic was going to end up in front of the action starved Manchester, England MMA fans. Action was plentiful if you had the best seat in the house at the M.E.N. arena like Elivis had who saw first hand, err... fist what it's like to be on the receiving end of the Count's punches and to be 'Counted' out early by referee stoppage in the 2nd round.

Is Arlovski that good?
link I honestly have my doubts. When I first heard he was fighting Fabricio Werdum, I thought he was nuts. Arlovski is a physical sight and very well-rounded, but I've never been convinced he was a championship caliber fighter. He looks good crushing B-level and the occassional respectable fighter, but very rarely earns a win against elite competition.

Barnett responds to Dana White comments
link Here is what Josh had to say: "In response to the comments made by Dana White I am completely open to fighting in the UFC and the new Pride Worldwide. I do not have any personal issues with Dana. "I may have my opinions on how an MMA show should be and they may differ with some of the promoter’s ideas out there but I am not one to refuse to do business. Like I have said before, I have no problem fighting in the UFC." So there you have it, one of the most talented heavyweight fighters in the world will continue to fight on the main stages of MMA.
