This Month’s MMA Birthdays: David Terrell Turns 40

Seasoned mixed martial arts observers will always wonder what might have been with David Terrell , a world-class talent whose body never seemed to cooperate with him. The former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight title contender will celebrate his 40th birthday on Jan. 9. The first man to earn the rank of black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Cesar Gracie , Terrell saw his MMA career limited to just eight appearances. He compiled a 6-2 record, with wins over Pride Fighting Championships alum Joey Villasenor and 2000 Olympic silver medalist Matt Lindland . “The Soul Assassin” fought for the vacant middleweight crown at UFC 51 on Feb. 5, 2005 and nearly finished Evan Tanner with a guillotine choke before succumbing to punches in the first round at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Terrell went on to throttle Scott Smith at UFC 59 some 14 months later before a rash of injuries undermined his fighting career. He has not fought since and saw a series of comeback attempts come off the rails before being released by the UFC in 2008.

Debets: How the Ali Act Could Reshape MMA in 2018

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * The United States Congress’ Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection held a hearing on mixed martial arts just two short months ago. Therein, former two-division Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder and UFC hall of famer Randy Couture joined Oklahoma Rep. Markwayne Mullin to make the case for extending the economic protections that cover boxers to their counterparts in MMA. If introduced, H.R. 44, better known as the Ali Expansion Act, would decouple promotions like the UFC and Bellator MMA from their titles and rankings system, placing those responsibilities within the domain of independent sanctioning bodies licensed by state athletic commissions. Champions would be required to fight the No. 1 contender of their division at least once annually, and firewalls would be erected to prevent promoters from also acting as managers. Other features of the bill would require MMA promotions to disclose dealings with fighters and other stakeholders, as well as the revenue generated, in connection with the events on which they compete.

Dana White: Cyborg vs. Nunes is next; Ferguson vs. Nurmagomedov likely before McGregor

“As long as Conor is willing to fight by March, we could do Khabib vs. Tony … and then the winner fights Conor for the title,” White told Yahoo! Sports. “Or, if Conor wants to sit out until next fall, then we’d have to make Khabib vs. Tony for the title – not the interim title.”

22 UFC champ Cris Cyborg shoots down Dana White's push for Amanda Nunes showdown

“The UFC are looking to book this fight, but since the UFC Perth card is already completely booked, it will not be happening in 6 weeks,” Anderson wrote in her Instagram post. “They can say whatever, can try make me look whatever they like, try and say someone else deserves this fight, but one thing is certain: this is the only fight that needs to happens and it will happen, soon…”

Last night we went to the muay Thai fights together, and she sat with me. It was awesome. I want to have a relationship with her. I don’t want that to be the last time I ever see her.”

Let’s face it, Bellator is the B league. Older fighters, and beginners. Pico is a beginner who is 1-1. One day, he may be in the UFC. There’s a reason he’s not yet. He has the background in wrestling to be a good MMA Fighter. Everyone wants to fight the best, and it’s in the UFC.

MMAjunkie's '2017 Comeback Fighter of the Year' is a pretty obvious choice

My general rule of thumb has always been, if you’ve been inactive for more than a year, I’ll automatically pick against you. It’s your job as a fighter to convince me to come back around before those famous MMAjunkie staff picks have their publish button hit. If you’ve been out for two years, no way. If you’ve been out for four? C’mon. No way you’re winning your comeback fight – not when it’s against a champ 15 pounds up from where you always fought.

Dana White Trashes Showtime Over Mayweather vs. McGregor, Vows to 'Never Work With Them Again' | MMAWeekly.com

White teaming up with Showtime came just a few years after he butted heads with the network following the purchase of Strikeforce, who had an exclusive broadcast deal with them already in place.

I wrestled 145 during my freshmen year at high school. I’m all in on this weight class and this weight right now. I want to get up to that title and take that title away from Max [Holloway] or Frankie [Edgar] or whoever has it at that point. Then maybe I’ll think about coming back up to 155 to hold two of them, but for now, my focus is on 145-pounds.”

I have  a responsibility to the sport to ensure that when I retire, the 145-pound division continues to exist, and it is because of that I want my next fight to be against a contender from the featherweight division that has fought at 145 pounds within the last year.”

Bihar Engineer Forced To Marry At Gunpoint, Kept Crying, Ordeal On Video

Patna:  A 29-year-old engineer was reportedly kidnapped and forced to marry a woman at gunpoint in Bihar. The video clips from the wedding show Vinod Kumar, a junior manager at Bokaro Steel Plant, dressed as a groom, being thrashed and forced to perform wedding rituals in Patna's Pandarak area. As he begs to be released and continues to cry for help, a group of women, allegedly from the woman's family, try to convince him to cooperate. When he refuses to apply vermillion to the bride, her relatives are heard saying, "We are only performing your wedding, not hanging you." Local media quoted the engineer as saying one of the bride's relatives had pointed a pistol at him after they met at a mutual friend's wedding and ordered him to marry her. His allegations are being investigated by the police.   Vinod Kumar kept crying as he was forced to perform wedding rituals.Last month, when Vinod did not reach home as planned, his brother Sanjay Kumar got worried and approached the police. He told them about a call from an unknown number informing him about his brother's  'Pakadua Vivah' (forced marriage).
