I found this on lordsofpain.net -- UFC Light Heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is being sued by former representatives White Chocolate Management. Here's the official statement: “White Chocolate Management, a Hollywood, Florida based management and Promotion Company and its President Reed Wallace have filed a $10,000,000 lawsuit in the State Supreme Court of New York, against Rampage Jackson, Juanito Ibarra and Ibarra’s Mixed Martial Arts Company for breach of contract, interference with contract and defamation arising out of a breach of a contract and false statements by Ibarra that ‘WCM had nothing to do with Rampage’ although it was Ibarra and his attorneys that prepared the final contract between Rampage and White Chocolate.”. Wonder what happened?

Are we done here?” He let out a deep breath. “Yeah, I guess.” “Good.” I got up and left.

Rickson Gracie - Exploring Genius
Numerous modern day Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu masters declare openly that Rickson Gracie’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the supreme expression of the art today. Indeed, many world-class Jiu-Jitsu players, champions in their own right, declare solemnly that Rickson Gracie is a virtuoso. The intent of this essay is to speak about my personal experience indicating Rickson’s uniqueness and to pursue several explanations that may shed greater light regarding the source of his matchless skills.

Former UFC Champion Steve Jennum Attacked
After his taste of the limelight as the winner of the UFC 3 tournament, Steve Jennum made news again, this time in his other role as a police officer. While off-duty on December 17, Jennum was attacked from behind by three assailants wielding a bottle as a weapon. Jennum prevented himself from being struck by the bottle and struggled with the accused until one of them pulled a knife and Jennum vacated the scene. "He was able to prevent the suspect from striking him from behind with the bottle and struggled with the victims, obviously his training added to what he was able to do," said Omaha Police Sgt. Teresa Negron.

An Update On Ryan Gracie's Death
It has been confirmed by multiple reports that Ryan Gracie tested positive for marijuana, cocaine, and some kind of anti-anxiety medication. After Gracie's arrest, Psychiatrist Sabino Ferreira de Faria was contacted by Gracie's wife and immediatly went to the jail that was detaining Gracie to attend to him, which he did for the majority of the night. He was informed of Gracie's passing while he was on his way home. The doctor stated that he administered the following drugs to Gracie in his cell in order to calm him down: -Haldol (a powerful antipsychotic), -Fenergan (which has a side effect of sleepiness) -Topamax (for Migraines) -Dienpax (tranquilizer) -OmniPlex (relaxant). We're still awaiting the medical examiner's report to confirm the official cause of death but the police officer who discovered his death believes Gracie died of an apparent heart attack.

Sherk calls BJ Penn a "Punk"
SS:" I think BJ Penn is a punk. Who the hell is he? He's won one fight in a couple of years now and it's just whatever man. He wants to make all of these rules and regulations, but who the hell is he? I'm the champ in my eyes so I don't care if he fights me or not, there's a whole bunch of guys that could fight me right now. It's his loss, not mine. He needs me more than I need him." My opinion is that he will probably get to fight a whole bunch of guys, he just might not be fighting for or defending the belt. I think he definately got screwed, but that's just the way it goes sometimes.
