UFC To host an event from Japan…This year?

UFC president Dana White today said that plans are moving forward for for the organization to promote a show in the country, which hasn't hosted a UFC event since UFC 29 way back in 2000. "The rumor is true," said White, who couldn't given any exact details on a date or host venue. "We're going to come to Japan, and probably soon." Just how soon? "This year," he said. White and other officials have long teased the possibility of an upcoming show in Japan, where four pre-Zuffa LLC events took place in Tokyo (twice), Chiba and Yokohama more than a decade ago. Until the past few years, the UFC largely ignored the region. However, in 2009, the UFC amped up its efforts in Asia, signed new TV and Internet deals in Japan, and began serious recruiting of Japanese talent. In … [Read more...]

Strikeforce Heavyweight Brett Rogers fired today.

He was arrested for (allegedly) beating his wife up pretty bad. Outside of that he's lost 3 in a row, so it's not totally unexpected. http://www.sbnation.com/mma/2011/6/30/2253102/dana-white-brett-rogers-fired-immediately-mma-news   it seems there's more to the story... Rogers, 30, has been charged with third-degree-assault, domestic assault by strangulation, a pattern of stalking conduct; all felonies. He was also charged with the endangerment of a child. Official police reports indicate that officers were dispatched to the Rogers home in Apple Valley, MN at approximately 12:35am on Wednesday evening, when a caller reported hearing yelling, a female screaming, and glass being broken from a neighbor’s home. Rogers stated to police that he had argued with his wife and … [Read more...]

Review: The Hustler

The Hustler STARRING: Paul Newman, Jackie Gleason, Piper Laurie, George C Scott DIRECTOR: Robert Rossen WRITER(S): Sidney Carroll , Robert Rossen STUDIO: 20th Century Fox RUNTIME: 134 min RATED: PG OFFICIAL RATING: ***** Stars(Review originally written in April 2006, contains some spoilers) Eddy Felson is a man filled to capacity with talent, however what he sorely lacks when first we meet his character in the 1961 classic is 'character'. He first walks into 'Ames' pool hall with a cocky grin hoping only to defeat the great pool hustler Minisota Fats (Played wonderfully here by Jackie Gleason). And he does indeed do that, they engage in a grueling series of marathon pool that at one point see's Felson up on Fats by an amound of over 10,000 dollars. This would have been an … [Read more...]

Marquardt speaks out.

Here's his side of the story.. http://ironforgesiron.com/2011/06/video-nate-marquardt-lets-us-know-why-he-was-released-couldnt-fight/ Normally I'd just post this and that'd be it, but something about this seems off to me. Sure Dana White has made some hotheaded decisions before, but firing one of your top contenders on the spot when he was slated to be in the main event seems serious. More serious than a medical illness. Vitor Belfort currently has Hepatitis and is undergoing treatment to get rid of it. (Yes he only has the kind you get rid of, not the permanent one.) Point is, when the doctors discovered he had it, and he was pulled out of his fight, he was treated, not fired. Marquardt has tested dirty before, so that's another reason I suspect more is going on here than we're … [Read more...]
