  8. The main card for September's WEC 51 event now appears complete. World Extreme Cagefighting officials recently moved a featherweight bout between "The Korean Zombie," Chan Sung Jung (10-2 MMA, 0-1 WEC), and opponent George Roop (10-6-1 MMA, 0-1-1 WEC) from the preliminary card to the night's Versus-televised main card. The five-fight televised lineup is now set for the card, which takes place Sept. 30 at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo. Featherweight champ Jose Aldo meets Manny Gamburyan in WEC 51 headliner. MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com) initially passed along news of the Jung vs. Roop bout earlier this month. Jung, a former World Victory Road/Sengoku fighter, made his highly anticipated WEC debut in April during WEC 48, which marked the organization's pay-per-view debut. The Jung vs. Leonard Garcia bout was part of the night's pre-PPV special on Spike TV. In a knockdown, drag-out affair, Garcia earned a close split-decision win, though both competitors earned "Fight of the Night" bonus checks. Jung became an overnight sensation with North American fans thanks to the performance, But including a unanimous-decision loss to former Sengoku champ Masanori Kanehara in May 2009, he now has lost two of his past three fights. He looks to rebound against Roop, who gets a third shot at a first WEC win. "The Ultimate Fighter 8" cast member and former UFC fighter dropped two weight classes and fought bantamweight Eddie Wineland at WEC 46, where he suffered a unanimous-decision loss. He then met Garcia in a rousing WEC 47 featherweight bout that ended in a split draw. Roop is now 2-3-1 over his past six fights going back to the TUF 8 Finale. The latest WEC 51 card now includes: MAIN CARD Champ Jose Aldo vs. Manny Gamburyan (for featherweight title) Miguel Torres vs. Charlie Valencia Donald Cerrone vs. Jamie Varner Chan Sung Jung vs. George Roop Leonard Garcia vs. Mark Hominick PRELIMINARY CARD Chris Horodecki vs. Ed Ratcliff Antonio Banuelos vs. Chad George Tyler Toner vs. TBA* * - Not officially announced

  10. :lol: just for you Here comes the Hammer. Stanley Burrell, also known as MC Hammer, announced today that he's getting into the MMA business with Alchemist Management, a new management and "brand-building" firm based out of Los Angeles. "I've been a fan of combat sports for years," MC Hammer stated today in a press release. "MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world and this is a great opportunity for us to launch a full-service management company." Known for 90s mega-hits such as "U Can't Touch This" and "2 Legit 2 Quit" and his trademark Hammer Pants, MC Hammer's rise to fame and sudden bankruptcy were perfect fodder for VH1's "Behind the Music." The hip-hop artist later became a minister and continued to work on a comeback while appearing on VH1's "The Surreal Life." MC Hammer was most recently seen on A&E's reality series "Hammertime," which profiled his life as a family man and entrepreneur. It ran for 12 episodes in 2009. In his new MMA venture, MC Hammer will take the reigns as CEO of Alchemist while managers Lex MacMahon and Nima Safapour will join the company as President and Vice President of Business Affairs and General Counsel, respectively. The firm has amassed several high-profile MMA names, including former UFC middleweight contender Nate Marquardt and veterans Vladimir Matyushenko, Jorge Rivera, Jared Hamman, Antoni Hardonk and James McSweeney. Current Strikeforce middleweight contender Tim Kennedy has also signed on. Safapour and McMahon previously managed several of the competitors now inked to Alchemist. "Alchemist Management will leverage its relationships and resources for the benefit of fighters, the sponsors, and the industry at large," MC Hammer stated. In social networking terms, you could say Hammer's star is too legit. An early advocate of Twitter, Hammer has 1.8 million Twitter followers to White's 1.1 million-plus.

  14. HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg released a four-paragraph, five-sentence statement Monday which cast doubt upon the veracity of Floyd Mayweather Jr.; Mayweather’s best friend, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe; Golden Boy Promotions president Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer and which forever eliminated any doubt about Mayweather’s intention: He’s ducking Manny Pacquiao. There can be no other rational explanation. More From Kevin Iole if(window.yzq_d==null)window.yzq_d=new Object();window.yzq_d['Qg3fFmKJiTM-']='&U=13erpmvdl%2fN%3dQg3fFmKJiTM-%2fC%3d715481.14185536.14089949.1323516%2fD%3dSKY%2fB%3d5761156%2fV%3d1'; Welcome to “Mayweather in Wonderland,” where they try to convince you that up is down, the grass is blue and the sky is green. Never mind that Mayweather has tarnished, perhaps forever, his legacy as one of the best boxers of all time. Given his disinclination to fight Pacquiao, it’s hard to regard him as the best fighter of his own time. Mayweather was nowhere to be found on Monday, still on vacation, apparently oblivious to the millions of boxing fans desperate to hear a word about his intentions. If Mayweather cared about his legacy, if he cared about the sport that has made him rich and famous, he wouldn’t have been invisible the last few weeks while allowing Ellerbe to spew a lot of mumbo jumbo. Mayweather and his cronies attempted to insinuate that Top Rank chairman Bob Arum was being deceitful when he said he’d been negotiating for a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight with Greenburg serving as the middle man. Greenburg and Arum have not had the strongest of relationships, while Greenburg has an extraordinarily cozy relationship with Golden Boy. If Arum were lying, their frequently contentious history together suggests that Greenburg would have called him on it immediately. Greenburg, though, clearly sided with Arum, when he said, in part, “I had been negotiating with a representative from each side since May 2nd … “ That’s what Arum, who promotes Pacquiao, has steadfastly claimed for weeks. On June 30, Arum told Yahoo! Sports that “all issues were resolved” and that the only outstanding matter was whether Mayweather wanted to fight in 2010 or 2011. Arum then set a July 16, 11:59 p.m. deadline on Mayweather to accept the deal. On a conference call in the early morning hours of July 17, Arum announced the deadline had passed without word from Mayweather and that he was pursuing a fight for Pacquiao with either Antonio Margarito or Miguel Cotto. Ellerbe, though, released a statement on July 19 that was the beginning of the end for Team Mayweather’s credibility. Ellerbe disputed that talks had even taken place. “Here are the facts,” the statement read. “Al Haymon, Richard Schaefer and myself speak to each other on a regular basis and the truth is no negotiations have ever taken place nor was there ever a deal agreed upon by Team Mayweather or Floyd Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao on November 13. Either Ross Greenburg or Bob Arum is not telling the truth, but history tells us who is lying.” That led many in the media to quickly assail Arum’s credibility and for Schaefer and De La Hoya to issue self-righteous comments backing Ellerbe and denying negotiations had ever taken place. And they would have won this silly game had it ended there and had Greenburg not entered the fray. Arum insisted he was telling the truth, but few seemed to believe him. They didn’t, that is, until Greenburg released his brief, simple, but truly remarkable statement. In it, he said, “Fights like Mayweather vs. Pacquiao are significant because of these fighters’ ability to connect with sports fans around the world. It’s unfortunate that it won’t happen in 2010. I had been negotiating with a representative from each side since May 2nd, carefully trying to put the fight together. Hopefully, someday this fight will happen. Sports fans deserve it.” Here’s what sports fans deserve: They deserve better than to waste their hard-earned money on “Money,” who acts as if he’s invented the sport. Mayweather’s a brilliant talent who never seems to let one forget it, who behaves as if he should be able to dictate terms and others should gratefully accept it because he said so. Let him play in his fantasy world. Boxing doesn’t need him. And, truth be told, he’s wrong about his value. Mayweather has sold more pay-per-views against common opponents than Pacquiao and his gates for those fights have been bigger. But Pacquiao’s Nov. 14 bout with Cotto at the MGM had a far greater economic impact upon the city of Las Vegas than either of Mayweather’s and the Nevada Gaming Control Board attributed casinos’ best performance in 22 months in November 2009 to the presence of the Pacquiao-Cotto bout and the high-rolling Asian gamblers who spent loads of money. Despite apparently being caught red-handed when Greenburg released his statement, Ellerbe’s only response on the record was, “I hear his statement and I stand by my statement.” But he then attempted to insinuate that comments Mayweather made at a June 2 Make-a-Wish event in Las Vegas should have been taken by the media that he never planned to fight Pacquiao this year. “At this particular time, Floyd Mayweather is taking probably a year off, a couple of years off from the sport of boxing,” Mayweather said at the charity event. “I don’t really know what the future holds for Floyd Mayweather at this particular time, but I’ll probably take a couple of years off.” Saying one “probably” is going to take a year off is a lot different than releasing a statement or holding a media conference and announcing one’s retirement. Yet, Ellerbe attempted to intimate that Mayweather’s statement to sports director Chris Maathuis of KLAS-TV in his gym at a charity event was a definitive announcement. What muddied the waters even more was told Robert Morales of BoxingScene.com, “I think I said it because I get the question so many times that, obviously, I was fed up and tired of it and I just said like, ‘Yeah, yeah, it’s gonna get made.’ ” Essentially, De La Hoya on Monday admitted to lying on June 11, though it’s uncertain how his June 11 comments would have helped end the questioning he wanted to avoid. Given that he said a deal was close, that would only seem to make the scrutiny greater, no lesser. Had he said there were no talks – which he’s now insisting is the truth – and that the fight was not going to happen, no one would have had reason to keep asking him. No one is going to ask any more. How can anyone support someone with Mayweather’s arrogance, who cares so little about the fans who made him rich beyond his wildest dreams that he won’t even consider the fight they want more than any other? Mayweather has run from his biggest challenge. The fans, even those who have ardently supported him through the years, will surely remember that. And the next time he dares to compare himself to one of boxing’s all-time greats, such as Sugar Ray Robinson or Sugar Ray Leonard, they’ll scoff. He can’t hold a candle to either.

  15. yeah you got the point chop the putos hands off please
  16. Impact FC, an Australian mixed martial arts start-up, may be done almost as quickly as it started. The promotions put on two events in an eight-day span, one in Brisbane, the other in Sydney. A report from Cage Potato shed light on the fact that the vast majority of the promotion’s fighters have yet to be paid. MMAWeekly.com was also able to verify those claims. Fighters such as Karo Parisyan, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Jesse Taylor, Jeff Monson, Brian Ebersole, and Denis Kang are among those that have yet to receive payment or have only received partial payment. The problem appears to be between the two men that head Impact FC and a disagreement over who was responsible for the finances. Australian concert promoter Andrew McManus and his Impact FC partner Tom Huggins are the principle parties sparring over who owes what. “[Tom] Huggins has run back to Brazil and is uncontactable, whilst I (who never negotiated, contracted or was a party to any deal) have now been left trying to find funds to pay the men whilst all the false promises of sponsorships (never happened) and late gate sales and walk up all turned out to be lies,” McManus wrote in an email to the blog Cage Potato. “That statement is categorically untrue,” Huggins wrote in resonse to McManus. “I can provide you with the agreement between Andrew and myself, which clearly demonstrates that my responsibility was to procure fighters and make matches for the event within a given budget. The agreement clearly shows that ALL of the financing for the events, including fighter purses, was the responsibility of McManus.” McManus then responded, saying he never signed such an agreement and that Huggins was a 50-percent partner in Impact FC. It was unclear, at the time of publication, whether or not the fighters would eventually receive all of the payment due, but it seems apparent that Impact FC has had it’s day in the sun and will likely not come through on a planned September event.
  17. Nothing that Jon Jones says would suggest that he’s fallen in love with himself or that he believes he’s God’s gift to mixed martial arts. He speaks softly and humbly, talking of what an honor it is to fight Vladimir Matyushenko and scoffing at suggestions he’s on the verge of becoming a superstar. Listen to him rave about Matyushenko’s skills and you might walk away fearing for Jones’ safety. Yet, one needs to go no further than UFC.com to see the 23-year-old light heavyweight referred to as the future of the MMA. Search the Internet and you’ll see words such as “star,” “sensation,” “phenom” and “generational talent” next to his name. More From Kevin Iole After dismantling Brandon Vera, himself once a heavily hyped UFC prospect poised on the brink of stardom, on March 21 in Broomfield, Colo., Jones seems a fight away from hitting the big-time. The UFC’s light heavyweight division is filled with, well, stars, sensations and phenoms, from guys like champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and former champions Lyoto Machida, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans to legends like Randy Couture and Rich Franklin. Jones has the talent to some day place himself in the same sentence with those types of fighters, though he’s yet to accomplish an iota of what the least of them have so far. And in professional sports, there are many more great prospects who don’t make it big than there are those who do. All you have to do to understand that is to remember JaMarcus Russell, David Carr, Ki-Jana Carter, Aundray Bruce and Walt Patulski, all former first overall selections in the NFL Draft who were flops of varying levels once they turned pro. And that doesn’t even consider the NBA, where guys like Kwame Brown and Michael Olowokandi are prominent among the first overall flops. Jones is extraordinarily gifted, no doubt – Just watch the way he almost effortlessly took apart Stephan Bonnar and Vera if you need convincing – but he still has to prove he can handle the pressure that comes with being a young prodigy. He’s going to have women throwing themselves at him and men making him all sorts of outlandish business propositions. For the time being, he’ll never have to pay for his own drinks if he chooses to hit a night club, which might seem like a good thing, but the more he wins and the greater the legend grows, the greater the scrutiny will get. Evans, his teammate at Jackson’s Submission Fighting, knows a thing or two about dealing with soaring expectations. He likes what he sees from Jones, but he also knows there’s a long way to go before anyone draws conclusions. “It’s hard to hear the praise and people saying you’re this and you’re that and not get sucked in by it,” Evans said. “Whenever you build a high profile, there are always going to be expectations and, a lot of times, living up to those expectations is the hardest part. Jon seems to be doing a decent job of showing up to the fights and being a game fighter when he hits the arena, but the more successful he is, the more pressure there’s going to be and the more people are going to expect from him. “People are cheering him and telling him he’s great and they’re patting him on the back. But the thing about that is, the same people who are patting you on the back and wanting to be your best friend are going to be the ones who will break you when you hit a bump in the road.” The best move Jones has made in his young career probably was opting to train at Jackson’s in Albuquerque, N.M., where a treasure trove of not only the sport’s elite but also the sport’s most grounded personalities are housed. Jones is a teammate of Evans and welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, as well as veterans like Keith Jardine and Shane Carwin. They’re the consummate professionals, even-keeled and level-headed and their presence has helped teach Jones the importance of losing the ego, ignoring the expectations and working every day in order to get better. “Growing up, being humble was something that was stressed to me time and time again,” Jones said. “And working at Jackson’s and being around guys like Rashad and Keith Jardine, they’re like big brothers and they show me the right way to do things. “I don’t pay attention to the hype. It’s not that important to me, honestly. I am in MMA because I have a passion for the sport. I love it. It’s becoming who I am as a person. And I know there are going to be critics, some who love what you’re doing and some who hate what you’re doing. To me, none of it matters. The only thing that matters is being humble and working as hard as I can and fighting the best that I can because this is what I love to do.” Trainer Greg Jackson said when he was building his camp, he recalled a story he heard one of The Beatles tell about how they dealt with fame. It’s become part of the philosophy of his gym, for the group to keep the individual grounded and humble. The Beatles remain one of the greatest acts in history. But Jackson said they policed themselves and didn’t allow each other to change and become influenced by their press clippings. “When one of them would get full of himself and start to show his ego, the other three would jump on him,” Jackson said. “They’d say, ‘Hey, relax. You’re one of us. We’re all in the same boat.’ And in our gym, with the culture the way it is and the number of veterans we have, it’s kind of that way. “A hot prospect can’t come into our gym and say he’s done this or that, because so many of the guys there have already done that. Jon’s a humble guy to begin with, but when he comes through the doors and sees a Georges St. Pierre or a Rashad Evans and he realizes that no matter what anyone thinks about him, they’ve done what he’s done and way more. It’s not a giant deal to them and they remind each other about the need to stay humble and to keep your focus.” Jackson said Matyushenko is the perfect type of opponent for Jones at this stage of Jones’ career. Matyushenko is 24-4 and a former International Fight League champion. He once fought Tito Ortiz for the UFC light heavyweight title and his only losses are to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Andrei Arlovski, Vernon White and Ortiz. He’s not going to be intimidated or awestruck by Jones. And nor, Jones said, should he. “He’s an extremely durable guy and he’s earned the respect of everybody in this business,” Jones said of Matyushenko. “He’s a lion and he’s not going to lay down for a 23-year-old kid. I don’t know for sure what is going to happen, but I do know it’s going to be a very tough fight.” Jones has quickly earned the respect of UFC president Dana White, but even White, who frequently gets fired up by a high-profile knockout, knows he has to temper his enthusiasm. Jones is still more about potential than performance and White knows all too well that a lot of potentially great fighters have come into the UFC and left with losing records, swollen eyes and bloodied lips. “He’s an extremely talented kid with a great future,” White said. “But he’s a young guy and he’s got to do it in the Octagon. I know you guys (in the media) love him, and I’ll admit, it’s hard not to when you see what he can do. But to become a star in this sport and to make it to legend status, you have to do it night after night and year after year and you have to prove you can handle all the outside stuff that comes with it. “He’s off to a good start, but he’s got a long way to go, still, and a lot to prove.”
  18. The long-anticipated professional debut of Ryan Couture (0-0 MMA, 0-0 SF) is now official. Following a successful amateur career, Couture will cash his first paycheck following an Aug. 13 bout against Rage in the Cage veteran Lucas Stark (2-4 MMA, 0-0 SF) at Strikeforce Challengers 10. Couture, of course, is the son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture and trains with his father's Xtreme Couture camp in Las Vegas. Strikeforce Challengers 10 takes place Aug. 13 at the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, Ariz., and airs on Showtime. A 182-pound catchweight bout between veteran Joe Riggs and Louis Taylor headlines the event. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker first announced the fight on Tuesday while a guest on "Calling All Sports with Roc and Manuch" on the Arizona-based KDUS-AM 1060. MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed the matchup with Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike Afromowitz, who said the bout was the first of a multi-fight deal with Couture. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. A lightweight, Couture makes his pro debut at 27 years old. While his father has long been a mainstay in the MMA world, the younger Couture didn't know from day one that he would follow in his father's footsteps. "I was 200 pounds and lazy and working at a bank," Couture told MMAjunkie.com in 2009. "I was thinking, 'What's my future?' … I didn't have any idea this would happen." Nevertheless, Couture has embraced the family business and has rattled off five wins via submission since making his amateur debut.
