Jadamba (1-0 Legend, 7-2 overall), who is ranked as one of the top 20 lightweight fighters in the world, won the Legend lightweight title with a split decision victory over Australia’s Adrian Pang at LEGEND 6 in October 2011 at the City of Dreams, Macau.

SFL's Phil Baroni has seen both sides of Joe Rogan vs. 'Rampage' feud
Phil Baroni can understand why Quinton "Rampage" Jackson got angry at UFC commentator Joe Rogan. Back in the day, he did too. But Baroni's opinion changed when he did Rogan's job himself. Now on the verge of a gig calling the fights for the new India-based promotion, Super Fight League, he knows the job. Super Fight League's inaugural event takes place March 11 at Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai, India. The event streams live on YouTube. Not a lot of people remember this, but the UFC once sent Baroni to communications classes at UNLV. This was during his first tenure with the then-struggling fight promotion and after he got a call to be a color commentator at UFC 42.

Polish promotion Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki (KSW) has announced a major change to its upcoming Feb. 25 event, as David Branch has been forced to withdraw from his light heavyweight bout against Jan Blachowicz at KSW 18 due to passport issues. Instead, the former KSW champion will face a different UFC veteran, Mario Miranda, Saturday at the Orlen Arena in Plock, Poland. A four-time UFC competitor, Miranda posted a perfect 9-0 record before receiving his Octagon call. The native Brazilian was knocked out in his UFC debut, falling in the first round to Gerald Harris at UFC Fight Night 21 in 2010. Though Miranda rebounded with a victory over David Loiseau, he would receive his walking papers following consecutive losses to Demian Maia and Aaron Simpson. Since his departure from the UFC, the Washingtonian has posted a trio of wins, most recently submitting Dmitry Samoilov at M-1 Challenge 29 on Nov. 19.
