After the events of last week, when Jon Jones turned down a fight with Chael Sonnen, I was left asking myself this question.  What happened to the fighter’s motto “anyplace, anytime”?  The criticism Jones has faced since his decision was made public would lead the casual MMA fan to think this type of thing has never happened.  Well it has.  Did Anderson Silva not recently turn down a fight against middleweight contender Chris Weidman based on monetary gain?  Yes, he did.  An event wasn’t cancelled because of Silva’s choice but that is not the point.  In my opinion money and championship titles have begun to destroy the essence of hand to hand combat, which is the already mentioned motto “anyplace, anytime”.  When this happened, the definition of fighter became lost in translation and heroes became sponsored by Nike and fell in love with their bank statements.

Before there were big time contracts, pay per views and millions of…

The Now

According to MMA Fighting, Miguel Torres has signed with up-start promotion World Series of Fighting. The initial reports last week for WSoF were that they would hold an event in November and be on NBC Sports Network.

The promotion also has former kickboxing star Ray Sefo, and long time MMA veteran Roger Huerta. Being on NBC Sports Network will help this promotion get off the ground quicker than most, but it never hurts to have star power that MMA fans will tune in to watch.

World Series of Fighting is new, they are not the UFC and will not be the UFC any time soon. Any delusions you have in your head about them taking over are ridiculous, they haven’t held one event. In time it is possible that they could move to NBC and have big fights and grow to be big enough to poach top talent from…

Joseph Benavidez pre-fight interview

UFC 152 is a stacked card with two titles on the line that night. Jon Jones will be fighting Vitor Belfort on the main event of the evening while Joseph will be fighting Demitrius(sp?) Johnson for the first ever flyweight division belt.

This is what Joseph had to say. Express your thoughts on who you think will win the fight.

Personally I can’t choose anyone because I’ve only ever seen Johnson fight once and never seen Joseph fight. I will watch a few of their fights and make my predictions later.

Ph News Today

MANILA (Reuters) – Indelibly linked with the ‘Thrilla in Manila’, where Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier laid their bitter boxing rivalry to rest some 37 years ago, the Araneta Coliseum welcomed “the future of fighting” on Friday in the Philippines‘ biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) event.

A tied, yellowing banner marking the date of that brutal battle in 1975 reminded fans of the Araneta’s place in boxing history, but most of the 16,500 people packed into the domed venue were not even born when Ali met Frazier in that last great clash of heavyweight titans.

While the full contact sport of MMA has gone from strength to strength over the last 10 years, boxing, and the heavyweight division in particular, has fallen on hard times.

Years of greed and self interest, and a lack of direction from the alphabet soup of governing bodies, has brought the once proud sport…
