Minor News & Random Shit

Recommended Posts

Got the idea to this after visiting the Sherdog boards the other day. I know the Sherdog boards are a breeding ground for cretins but it is a place where you find out loads of little tidbits of news that usually bypasses the standard MMA news sites or if it's posted passes with little fan-fair. I didn't wanna clog up the news thread with stuff so i thought i'd create a different thread to post minor news/fight announcements that i come across that some of you may find interesting, im a sucker for useless infomation so this kind of stuff interests me, so here we go...

* Alexander Emelianenko's first fight since coming out of prison is on 27th September, he's fighting Geronimo Dos Santos in the WFCA promotion in Russia.

* KSW's main and co-main event's are set for the Dublin show on 22nd October, main event is between Mariusz Pudzianowski and UKFF favorite James McSweeney. Co-main is a KSW rematch between Norman Parke and Mateusz Gamrot (Gamrot beat Parke by Decision in May).

* Brennan Ward/Dave Rickles are fighting each at Bellator 185.

* Zack Makovsky has signed with ACB and is headlining a show they are putting on in Canada on October, he's fighting some bloke called Yoni Sherbatov. Thiago Tavares is also on the card. ACB is random as fuck.

Speaking of ACB being random...

* There's another ACB show in the UK next weekend in Sheffield (i'll probably stick this in the UK thread in the week because i plan on watching it), but the main event is Luke Barnatt vs. Scott Askham. I wasn't even aware that the UFC had released Askham, but that's about as good a domestic 185lb fight as you're gonna get outside of the UFC.

I'm actually thinking of heading over for this if tickets are priced reasonably. Wouldn't mind being able to tell the grandkids that I was there to see the arsehole that is James McSweeney get smashed to bits by a jacked up boydbuilder.

If you want to really tell the grandkids, you might want to sell it better as "seeing the five-time World's Strongest Man beat up possibly MMA's biggest bark".

think tickets were around UFC prices for London, they sold out Wembley Arena pretty quick too.

Julian Lane is the latest MMA fighter to sign with BKB (Bare Knuckle Boxing) in the UK. He's signed on to fight Jimmy Sweeney (fresh over a win over Melvin Guillard).

Ex-UFC Light Heavyweight Goran Reljic is also with the promotion and holds their Light Heavyweight Title.

Probably not the only bare knuckle boxing you'll see in Coventry that night.

So the girl folk are out of the house for a bit and I'm watching Bunce's Boxing Hour with a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich. I'm having a nice time. What could possibly ruin this?

He was promoting tonight's Barnatt-Askham ACB show, by the way. He's not crossing over to fight Anthony Joshua. Although I wish he was.

His interview with Bunce was OK to be fair. And I've always gave him his due as a commentator. I still think he's one of the best in the game at that. But it's just his face and whole smug demeanour. I can't help wanting to see him get twatted. 

He's saying that he's hoping to fight for both Bellator and ACB soon.

Frank Shamrock is facing Kazushi Sakuraba in Rizin on October 14th...under grappling rules.

15 years ago it would have been the biggest fight in the sport, i like the grappling rules fights Rizin are adding to their shows though, it beats seeing Sakuraba beaten to a pulp.
