I used to do a post once or twice a week at my old site in which I posted links and recapped news stories. I’m bringing it back. The column was MMA only, but because our new site focuses on MMA, boxing, and pro wrestling, so will this column.
News and notes from around the MMA world …
– Eric Raskin (for The Ring Magazine and through ESPN.com) says that if you see one fight all year, you have to see Miguel Cotto vs. Antonio Margarito.
– Over the weekend, Dana White talked about his visit with Rampage Jackson.
– Leonard Garcia says that his next fight is going to be with Jens Pulver.
– Dave Meltzer says that after this weekend’s show, Affliction could be a big time player.
– Lance Storm talks about working with ROH this weekend for their Canadian debut.
– WWE Films is now WWE Studios and they are going to release straight to DVD, The Marine II. Really? Is a sequel really necessary?
– Just what the world needed. A second Nikolai Valuev vs. John Ruiz fight.
– I’m a huge fan of the Bad Left Hook KO of the Day.
What a weekend. There were two MMA shows on Saturday night. There was an MMA show from Japan last night. And there was a WWE PPV show last night as well. One would think that it would be hard to cover all four shows. It was. But Fight Game Blog gotcha covered.
On Saturday night, while I was covering Anderson Silva’s dismantling of James Irvin, Cactus Jim was writing about the beating Fedor Emelianenko gave Tim Sylvia. That poor Maine-iac. And then on Sunday, while I was watching Chris Jericho give Shawn Michaels a beating, Duan was watching Joachim Hansen become the new lightweight champion.
We gotcha covered.
