Multiple reports indicate that Ronda Rousey and Meisha Tate have joined the UFC to create its first women's division.

Thoughts?

Mixed Martial Arts / World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 1
« on: November 06, 2012, 05:41:43 PM »
I attended this event live this weekend.  Did anyone watch the prelims online or the main card on NBC Sports (formerly Versus)?

Looked like a pretty solid card going in, and except for the Arlovski/Cole fight, it didn't disappoint.  Good matchups throughout, and a highlight reel knockout for Anthony "Rumble" Johnson.  I still can't believe that guy ever made 170.  He's now fighting at 205 ... and looks big at 205!  Linderman came down from heavyweight, and Johnson still looked like the bigger guy.

Mixed Martial Arts / Two Guys from My Son's High School Wrestling Team
« on: August 01, 2012, 09:03:23 PM »
Two guys from my son's high school wrestling team are now fighting in the UFC ... at the same weight.  Dennis Bermudez, who was on a recent season of TUF and lost the finale to Diego Brandao after having Brandao in all kinds of trouble & then beat Pablo Garza in his next fight, and Joey Gambino, who just lost to Steven Siler by TKO.

Dennis fights Tom Hayden next at UFC 150 in Denver on August 11.

Joey gets Brandao at UFC 153 on October 13 ... in freakin' Brazil.  Nothing like throw him into the fire.

Mixed Martial Arts / Anthony Johnson misses weight?
« on: January 13, 2012, 06:02:28 PM »
Johnson used to fight at 170 and recently commented on how easy it is to make 185. Now, today he missed weight... by 11 pounds!

Mixed Martial Arts / Gerald Harris to fight on HDNet Feb 24
« on: January 04, 2012, 03:47:20 PM »
Here is an article on the next fight for Gerald Harris (dlareg from prior forums):

http://mmajunkie.com/news/26806/ufc-vet-gerald-harris-joins-hdnets-legacy-fighting-10-lineup.mma

Next month's Legacy Fighting Championships 10 lineup has undergone a few changes.

Chief among them? UFC vet Gerald Harris, who's fresh off a pair of Tachi Palace Fights and DREAM victories, has joined the Feb. 24 lineup.

Harris (19-4) now fights fellow middleweight Artenas Young (7-4) on the night's HDNet-televised main card, Legacy officials confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Young's original opponent, William "Bubba" Bush (3-1), remains on the card. However, an opponent hasn't been determined.

Legacy Fighting 10 takes place at Houston's Arena Theater. At least six fights are expected to be part of the night's live HDNet-televised main card.

Harris, who surprisingly was released from the UFC in 2010 following a 3-1 run in the organization, is a former IFL fighter who competed on "The Ultimate Fighter 7." The former Cleveland State University wrestler knocked out John Salter, Mario Miranda and Dave Branch (with two "KO of the Night" awards) under the UFC banner before a decision loss to Maiquel Falcao resulted in his UFC release. The loss snapped a 10-fight win streak for the part-time comedian.

Harris now looks to go 3-1 in his post-UFC career when he meets Young, who looks to rebound from a Shark Fights 20 loss to recent UFC signee Clifford Starks. The onetime Strikeforce returns to Legacy for the first time since early 2011, when he earned a decision victory over Jonathan Mack.

The latest Legacy Fighting Championships 10 event now includes:

MAIN CARD (HDNet)

    Mike Bronzoulis vs. Eric Davila
    Pat Audinwood vs. Justin Reiswerg
    Gerald Harris vs. Artenas Young
    Carson Beebe vs. Tim Snyder
    Jonathon Harris vs. Chidi Njokuani
    Rashon Lewis vs. Alex Morono

PRELIMINARY CARD

    William "Bubba" Bush vs. TBA
    Angel Huerta vs. Mike Sierra
    Lee Higgins vs. Lee King
    Jason Carter vs. Cody Phillips
    Ray Blodget vs. Rey Trujillo
    Jesus Mendez vs. Cody Williams

Off-Topic / What happened to Bette Midler's Voice?
« on: December 19, 2011, 04:23:57 PM »
Have you seen the car commercial where they talk about how it's easy to go overboard during the holiday season and use an example of hiring Bette Midler to go caroling with you?  Her voice sounds completely gone.  What happened?

http://www.cagepotato.com/junie-browning-claims-phuket-assault-story-is-a-shakedown-fled-hospital-to-avoid-being-killed-by-thai-mafia/



(Well, it was a nice vacation while it lasted.)

On Tuesday, we let out a long, weary sigh when we heard news that TUF 8 madman Junie Browning had allegedly beat up a woman at a bar, then beat up the bar’s staff and guests, then continued to beat up all of them later at a hospital. Considering Junie’s history of hospital violence, the story was all too believable.

Of course, Browning has his own version of the events, which paint him as a marked man in a corrupt country, doing his best to defend himself. Here’s what he wrote on his Facebook page immediately after the incident:

“Wow what a helluva weekend?!.. Some pussy named Sie Menzies and about 10 of his friends started a fight with me, I guess just to test a ‘UFC fighter guy’ at his shitty little bar in Karan Thailand. Had a beer bottle and glass mug shattered on my head then to make everything better, stabbed severely by some crazy Thai bitch. On a positive note I managed to break a few orbital bones, at least a couple jaws, and some unconscious bodies laying on the ground before I blacked out from loss of blood and apparently had to be resuscitated in the ambulance. So, how was your weekend?”

Once the gravity of situation sets in, Junie becomes deathly serious:

“Im officially the biggest American patriot there is now. These other primitive countries are all about money, mafia and corrupt law enforcement. Regardless what you believe I never touched a female in theses events that occurred and my girlfriend was there from start to finish to vouch. Hitting Thai women was an excuse for them to demonize me and get some baht out of me. You all don’t understand with my name, people will use it against me. I acted like an idiot on a reality show for publicity so they are using that against me. Im sorry and I care about people more than you thank and I appreciate all the support from the intelligent people that understand that these primitive countries are trying to kill me ( Literally ) . I need help BAD! please call the US Embassy in my regards. Thank you very much everyone.

Apparently in the news story I fled the scene in the hospital before the police got there. It’s obvious by this picture that the police were already there. It wasn’t until hours later my girlfriends and my phone were flooded with phone calls saying that the Thai mafia were headed to the hospital to kill me did we leave. We understood that it is a very corrupt place so we had to flee and get in contact with the US Embassy. Funny how cropping a photo changes the whole story.

In a follow-up post on his Facebook wall, a woman believed to be Junie’s girlfriend supported the story with some gory details of her own:

“The Thai government is so corrupt! For anyone out there that knows the story about what is going on with Junie Browning, it is not true!

When two men get into an argument it should stay between them. 15 guys jumped on top of Junie and smashed his head in with glass bottles and beer mugs. I had to throw myself on top of his body while he gargled blood and they continued to kick him. Then even after… he lay unconscious some Thai girl stabs him!!!

If you know me then you know I would not make this up. I was there from start to finish.
Then you take all the guys from the brawl into the same room in the hospital? What do you expect to happen? Listen, this is not the USA this is Thailand. The country revolves around money and the mafia DOES exist. When you get a phone call saying that there is a price on your boyfriends head and if they find you they will kill you too just to get to him you run.

Junie Allen Browning did nothing but fight for his life and try to protect me. All the media and mma forums like to talk shit because it makes a good story. Get a clue! You like to sit on your couch at home and watch the discovery channel and think you know what it is like around the world? That’s retarded! No women were involved in the fight and Junie did nothing that wasn’t provoked.”

Junie’s exact whereabouts are still unknown.
