Video: Bellator fighters happy to see tournament format go away

Less than a month before Viacom booted Rebney and COO Tim Danaher in favor of ex-Strikeforce head Coker, a new format foreshadowed change in the MMA promotion’s way of doing business. The format created a pool of former tournament winners that could fight for a title at any time, giving Bellator more flexibility in booking fights. The change followed another slight alteration this past year in which the promotion could exercise the option of putting on an immediate title rematch if a championship bout was particularly exciting.

Kevin Lee vs. Jon Tuck added to September's UFC 178 card in Las Vegas

Tuck, a Guam native who trains at the MMA Lab in Arizona with the likes of former lightweight champion Benson Henderson, got back in the win column earlier this summer, as well. In June, he picked up a TKO win over Jake Lindsey – when Lindsey tapped out due to heel strikes in the third round. That was a rebound for Tuck following the first loss of his pro career, a unanimous decision setback to Norman Parke at UFC Fight Night 30 in England this past October.

Cage Warriors Moves Aug. 23 Card to Jordan After Dispute with Swedish Federation

Jack Mason was one of several CWFC talents not approved by the SMMAF. | Claire Farrell/Sherdog.com European mixed martial arts promotion Cage Warriors Fighting Championship has elected to move its Aug. 23 event from Stockholm to Amman, Jordan, on Aug. 22. According to a release by the promotion, “the decision to move CWFC 71 from Sweden to Jordan has come as a result of the nonsensical refusal of the Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation to approve several bouts to be contested under full unified rules.” CWFC submitted five bouts to the SMMAF for initial approval; of those five, only a featherweight clash between Martin Svensson and Dave Hill received permission to be contested. Four others -- Jack Hermansson vs. Cheick Kone , Pannie Kianzad vs. Alexandra Buch , Jack Mason vs. Jonatan Westin and Liam James vs. Frantz Slioa -- were denied approval. The SMMAF issued a statement to the promotion explaining its decision, claiming that "the committee has found that several matches applied for by Cage Warriors have not made the required level.

After Brief Hiatus, Three-Time UFC Veteran Henry Martinez Rekindles Love for MMA

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Henry Martinez walks into the Jackson-Wink MMA gym on a warm summer morning in late July, wearing the extra weight that accompanies parenthood and the type of smile reserved only for the times you get to catch up with old friends. Martinez is nearly two years removed from his last UFC appearance, a brutal head kick knockout courtesy of Daron Cruickshank in December 2012. He’s a little heavier now than he was then, a little wiser and definitely a little happier than he was shortly after that fight, which resulted in his release from the Las Vegas-based promotion. “I put on a little bit of a panza ,” he admits with a grin. “I’m still trying to lose it.” The New Mexico native has fought once since then, losing via second-round TKO to current Bellator talent Desmond Green at New England Fight Nights 7 in May 2013. Mostly, though, Martinez withdrew from his old life, keeping to himself while working to make ends meet and support his newborn daughter. Eventually, the allure of fighting was too much too resist.

Scientists in Scotland Have Created a Working Tractor Beam

Now scientists from the University of Dundee, in Scotland, have created something with a bit more muscle. While most of the documented experiments with tractor-beam technology so far have involved light waves, the team from Dundee used sound waves to manipulate a half-inch triangular prism made of metal and rubber, successfully pulling the target toward the source of the acoustic beam. Half an inch may not sound like much, but it’s a vast improvement on fifty nanometres. The experiment was part of a larger project across four U.K. universities—Bristol, Southampton, Glasgow, and Dundee—and took nine months to complete. The results have been published in  Physical Review Letters .

Anderson Silva Never Considered Retirement, Says Injured Leg is ’95 Percent’ Healed

Anderson Silva is eager to get back into the Octagon. | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com Through it all -- the writhing in agony on the Octagon floor, the emergency surgery, the grueling rehab -- Anderson Silva never once thought about quitting. “The Spider” suffered a gruesomely broken left leg throwing a kick in a loss to Chris Weidman at UFC 168 this past December. The former middleweight champion had a rod inserted into his left tibia during an emergency procedure after the bout. Word of his recovery came in bits and pieces until a major breakthrough in June: Silva was officially cleared to spar . Earlier this week, Dana White announced that Silva would face Nick Diaz in a blockbuster middleweight clash as part of the promotion’s traditional Super Bowl weekend card at UFC 183 . It was a an arduous process, to be sure, but the man who had to endure it all to get to this point didn’t think twice about what he was doing -- even at 39 years old. “Retirement never went through my mind,” Silva said through translator Jorge Guimares during a conference call on Friday.

Jose Aldo blasts fighters critical of TRT: They're 'pussies trying to find an excuse'

"I see no problem (with TRT usage). A lot of people use something and hide, then they criticize people who admittedly use. I think these are a bunch of pussies trying to find an excuse, fearing to lose fights against who's doing a good job. At one point you have an age that makes it necessary and I see no problem with TRT. I would fight who is doing TRT, who isn't, or who is using other drugs. It doesn't matter to me anyway. The same punch I'll throw in one of these guys, I'll throw in another of them. If it's allowed or not, I don't care because I'll still train and fight as I'm doing right now."

This Month’s MMA Birthdays: Dan Henderson Turns 44

Dan “Hendo” Henderson turns 44 this month. | Photo: Gleidson Venga/Sherdog.com A two-time Olympian and former two-division Pride Fighting Championships titleholder, Dan Henderson will celebrate his 44th birthday on Aug. 24. Henderson wrestled collegiately at Cal State Fullerton and Arizona State University before representing the United States in Greco-Roman wrestling at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, and the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. A Downey, Calif., native, he transitioned to mixed martial arts in June 1997 and has since pieced together one of the sport’s most enduring resumes. Henderson owns a 23-12 combined record in the Ultimate Fighting Championship , Strikeforce and Pride, including victories over Mauricio Rua (twice), Murilo Bustamante (twice), Fedor Emelianenko , Wanderlei Silva , Vitor Belfort , Rich Franklin and Michael Bisping . The Team Quest co-founder has secured 14 of his 30 career victories by knockout or technical knockout, largely on the strength of his crippling right hand.
