- EXC has confirmed 3 title fights on the 26th (heavy, middle, and welter)
- Strikeforce has a big show this weekend with there #1 fighter Gilbert Melendez taking on Josh Thompson. Weigh-ins are today at 530 pacific time at a Dave and Busters (I kid you not)
- Looks like Brett Rodgers got his wish , rumors are floating that he is getting his boy Kimbo in October. (personally I think this is going to be the show that draws the highest rating ever, more on that later)
- The seniors tour that is Affliction lost a fighter....Vernon"Tiger" White is out for testing pos-o-tive for a diuretic in a local show. Edwin Dewees is rumored as his replacement against "Little Nog"
- Mauro Ranallo & "Big John" are set as the announcement crew for the Affliction card. On a personal note I cannot stand Mauro! He is WAY over the top and turns my stomach.
- The WEC has just about filled out there Aug. 3rd card with a few good lightweight guys
I am working on a state of the mma piece that will cover some of the most debated topics in the game today. Its going to cover the UFC and all the other rival companies place in the game. The MMA world is in a serious transition state right now. I think there are a clear set of goals that need to be achieved soon and the company that will reach them is still up for debate. I have laid out ground rules for success of the companies and what roadblocks could arise. Look for the article within the next 2 weeks .
I will have a review of the Strikeforce show sometime this weekend and updates throughout .
