World Series of Fighting 10 on June 21 Features Three Title Fights | MMAWeekly.com
“We wanted this event to be a special night, and it doesn’t get much better than having three world titles on the line at one event,” Sefo said. “This main card just might be our best yet. Three championship fights and two additional bouts that seem destined to deliver fireworks. This is going to be one night you don’t want to miss.”

Lawn-mowing Matt Brown on title shot: I don't see what the problem would be
"I'm surprised the elbows weren't hurting him more," Brown said. "A lot of the things I was hitting him, he was doing a good job keeping his chin down. So a lot of the stuff I was hitting him with was on the top of his head, so it was hurting my hands, and elbows and stuff. There was a little bit of, normally when I hit someone as hard as I hit him, even with 16-ounce gloves in training, they fall over or they stop, they back yup, there was a lot of time I wasn't sure if I hurt him or not, which is a testament to him."
Natalie & Fighter Diet Delts 2 Die 4
As Pauline says in this book’s intro, delts are like the icing on the cake. If you’re looking to add the finishing touches to your upper body workout, then it’s time you concentrated on those shoulders. Enhance the look of your arms and even your waist (broader shoulders = smaller looking waist) by building your deltoids. Delts to Die For shows you how to do this effectively.
How crazy is it for Brown to want a title shot? Five ways of looking at UFC Fight Night 40
It makes you wonder though, is it really so crazy to give Brown a title shot? Maybe, yeah. On paper, a win over the likes of Silva, who’s been winning one and losing the next since arriving in the UFC, shouldn’t vault any welterweight to the top of the heap. The winner of the upcoming fight between Tyron Woodley and Rory MacDonald will have a much better claim than Brown does. Same for whoever’s left standing after Jake Ellenberger and Robbie Lawler square off. At the same time, try to imagine Brown’s question – who do you want to see fight for a title? – being put to the MMA universe at large, and then try to imagine them howling back, “WOODLEY!!!” Of the available contenders who have not already had a crack at Johny Hendricks, they all lack a certain…oomph.
Harvard discovers three of its library books are bound in human flesh
The big deal with these three books being bound in HUMAN skin as opposed to ANIMAL skin is creepy for several reasons:
1. It's not a common practice nowadays. How many books like these three do you see nowadays? NONE! And you honestly wonder what the big deal is?
2. Killing animals is legal ( depending). Killing humans is NOT. Definitely today, this would be illegal. Therefore, with a book bound in human flesh comes a feeling that something "bad" happened in order for these people's flesh to be used as book binding in the first place, even if it WAS done so legally.
3. I can best sum up the third reason with a quote from the 1990 remake of 'Night Of The Living Dead':
"They're us. We're them and they're us."

FD The Men's Guide (Athlete)
My wife has purchased many of your Fighter Diet ebooks and she loves them!!! She recently did her first physique competition and she helped me by using your Men's Guide to FD eBook. Thanks for help!!
Think Fighter Diet is all about girl power? Well you thought wrong.
It’s true Pauline knows a thing or two about women's health and fitness, but her FD concept can be applied to any "body" male or female. To bring a little focus back on the Y chromosome, she's created the Men's Guide to Fighter Diet.
An excellent ebook, the Men’s Guide is a Fighter Diet Concept book, workout plan and meal plan all wrapped into one. One section could also be considered the nutshell version of Cardio for Leanness. In fact, for that reason, you could think of the Men’s Guide as the male version (though

Fight Night Natal Free Fight: Shogun Rua vs Dan Henderson UFC 139
Former Strikeforce and PRIDE champion Dan Henderson returned to the UFC for a five round epic against former UFC light heavyweight champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. Relive the incredible first battle before the rematch at Fight Night Natal.
“I am so glad that I decided to finally try Fighter Diet after knowing about it for over a year, but never attempting. I recently did my first bodybuilding competition as a lightweight and placed 1st in my class. The dieting was horrible, though I stuck with it, all 3.5 months were hell! Excuse my language. The mood swings associated with “old school” bodybuilding diets that have almost zero carbohydrates and the lack of energy to do anything almost, is what almost deterred from wanting to compete again. After my competition I was afraid of gaining weight like most competitors do and I didn’t want to live my life eating small portions and always feeling hungry. So, I bought my first FD Ebook which happened to be FD Extreme and currently on the 1500cal plan. So far I have managed to

For his return, the UFC matched him with an unranked opponent, who was quickly declared the betting favorite. At least the bout took place in Brown's home state, but even that didn't offer him much support. Attendance at the event was 6,143, about 10,000 less than the number the UFC's last card in Cincinnati pulled.

Georges St. Pierre will reprise Jean-Claude Van Damme's role in a remake of the cult classic Kickboxer
According to the Urban Dictionary , the term 'Jean Claude Van Damme' can also be used as a personal modifier to 'place emphasis on a certain observation about a person, usually oneself'. An example of this can be 'Jean Claude Van DAMME, I look good tonight'. Alternatively, you can also use the term as in 'that strange, bizarre and unexpected kiss between those two guys was Jean Claude Van DAMME!'. At least, that's the only way I would use it when I'm not in a 'Bloodsport' or 'Kickboxer' conversation.

Excellence Requires No Translation: Cain Velasquez, the UFC, and Mexico | FIGHTLAND
They love him for his pride and for his talent, but they also like him for an unusual quality he brings to the Mexican combat sports scene: size. Previous heroes like Julio Cesar Chavez, Ruben Olivares and Vicente Saldivar were not only all boxers, but all lighter-weight fighters. Current and former Mexican and Mexican-American MMA standouts like Efrain Escudero, Erik Perez and Miguel Torres dominated the smaller divisions (which are relatively new to the UFC, a factor that might explain their relatively low name recognition). Tito Ortiz and Ricco Rodriguez were both bigger guys of Mexican descent, but arguably did not actively represent or court that demographic to the extent Velasquez has.
Lance Palmer vs. Nick LoBosco added to WSOF 10 in June
Palmer, a member of the famed Team Alpha Male in California, will look to rebound from the first loss of his career. In December, he was submitted by Karakhanyan in the third round of their featherweight title fight. Prior to that, the 26-year-old was unbeaten with three submission wins on his resume.

"It's one of those things," White said. "Those guys, I don't care about those guys. I don't see them as competition whatsoever. I see that Bjork (Bjorn Rebney) has been saying a lot of stupid s--t lately, he's in the press. He's screaming for attention. Screaming for attention. Talking about New York and the union and he's going to... what the f--k has he done to do anything in New York? What has that guy done to raise the bar in mixed martial arts whatsoever? He's done nothing. He's done completely zero. Zilch.

Then there was an opportunity to fight Sean O’Connell in the MFC, but when it came down to it, his management refused the fight and he fought Markhaile Wedderburn instead. I got ahold of Sean and asked him why he wouldn’t take the fight because it makes more sense for him to take a fight against a light heavyweight who is ranked ahead of him (in me) instead of an overweight welterweight with a losing record, and he said he would have accepted it, but then to get ahold of (MFC President) Mark Pavelich to set up the fight, I never heard back from him.

5. When your body wants to store body fat it will do all it can to keep on storing more body fat as long as you let it! That means those cheats and extra calories you eat now and then are likely to turn right into those hungry fat cells. This is why you must follow a strict diet! A strict diet doesn't mean 'have to be hungry', quite the opposite. Fighter Diet takes care of that so you can lean out while eating to satisfaction.

Champ Eddie Alvarez details how concussion took him out of Bellator 120
“What do you say? I’m not going to fix something that’s not broken,” he said. “I win quite often, and I train a certain way. It works for me. So I won’t be going any less hard than what I do. At the Blackzilians, we go very hard. Our pace is high, and it’s very real, the fights that go on within our gym. I don’t want that to change. I feel like that’s a huge part of our success. If I could change anything, I feel like some protocols may be put in place like they have in the NFL and every other sport. But I don’t even know if that’s doable, considering this is an individual sport. I don’t feel like I did anything I could have avoided, that I was being negligent. I just think it was unfortunate what happened, and it could happen to anyone.”

Fortunes changed for five at UFC Fight Night 40
But he's now almost 30, and has a 4-4 UFC record. Granted, that's a little misleading there was a disqualification loss in a fight he looked to have finished in seconds. But in every UFC fight that has gotten out of the first round, he's lost. He should try and get Kim, who knocked him out on Oct. 9, because he looked on the verge of winning there until the finish. But UFC may not want to book a rematch so soon. But he's in a position where he's probably not going to get any other top guy. And anyone who isn't a top guy isn't going to help him much with a win. Perhaps Saffiedine (15-3), who has been battling a series of injuries of late, would be the most viable option, but Silva is coming off a loss and Saffiedine is coming off a win.
The Walkmen: UFC Fight Night ‘Brown vs. Silva’ Walkout Songs
On the day before Mother’s Day, the
Ultimate Fighting Championship staged UFC
Fight Night “Brown vs. Silva” at the U.S. Bank Arena in
Cincinnati. Despite ample opportunity, no fighter walked out to
2Pac’s “Dear Mama,” Danzig’s “Mother” or even the perfectly crafted
choice of LL Cool J’s “Mama Said Knock You Out” on Saturday in the
Queen City. In the main event, welterweight contender Matt Brown
put on a performance in the cage that would have made MMA moms
Fighting in his home state, Brown came into the bout on the longest
winning streak of his nine-year professional career. Not lacking
confidence, with five stoppages in his last six outings, Brown
picked California hard rock band Avenged Sevenfold for his walkout
anthem. Riding a six-fight winning streak, Brown marched to the
cage to the title track off Avenged Sevenfold’s sixth studio album,
“Hail to the King.”
Having alternated wins and losses for the duration of his UFC
career, Brazilian Erick Silva
looked to make it two in a row inside the Octagon.

Bellator 120: Rampage vs. King Mo fight card
There are no UFC events this week, but Bellator is making its PPV debut on Saturday night. It's certainly not the debut they wanted, as they've lost Eddie Alvarez / Michael Chandler 3 due to an Alvarez concussion, so Chandler is fighting Will Brooks for the interim LW title in the co-main event, while Rampage Jackson vs. King Mo occupies the main event spot. A heavyweight tournament final between Alexander Volkov and Blagoi Ivanov has moved up to the PPV broadcast. The middle of the main card includes middleweight champ Alexander Shlemenko against Tito Ortiz at 205 lbs, and welterweight Michael Page versus Ricky Rainey.
Eddie Alvarez on concussion: ‘It feels like my brain is sort of bruised’
Bellator’s foray into the world of pay-per-view took a big hit when lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez was forced off the card due to an injury. News came down on Saturday -- one week from the fight -- that Alvarez had suffered a concussion in training, ultimately forcing him from this coming weekend’s trilogy fight with Michael Chandler in Southaven, Miss.. Since then Bellator has announced that Season 9 lightweight tournament winner Will Brooks will replace Alvarez on the card, and that the event – which still features bouts between Quinton Jackson vs. Muhammed Lawal as well as Tito Ortiz against Alexander Shlemenko -- will remain a PPV. The new headliner will be the grudge match between Jackson and Lawal, the finalists from this season’s miniature light heavyweight tournament. Alvarez appeared on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour to talk about the injury, which he said happened a couple of weeks ago while training at the Blackzilians gym in Boca Raton, Florida. "It was during one of [coach] Kenny Monday’s wrestling practices," he told host Ariel Helwani. "Me and Abel Trujillo were wrestling.

Here's the plot summary from the presser: "David and Kurt Sloan are the descendants of a well-known Venice, California dynasty of champions. Both are top-notch fighters and athletes in the prime of their lives. When David wins the Karate World Championship, a promoter lures him to Hong Kong despite Kurt's protests that the man is a crook. Not soon after, Kurt receives a letter from David and heads to Thailand to meet him. When he arrives, he discovers his brother is dead. The man responsible is the viscous Tong Po. Desperate to seek revenge, Kurt turns to Xian Chow, his brother's former mentor. To defeat the man who killed his brother, Kurt must look within himself to find the strength and courage of a champion."
Is bulletproof coffee enough to fuel David Mitchell's return to the big stage?
“I could talk about this all day,” Mitchell said. “I could do a three-hour podcast. But the short and long of it is you just put the healthy fat and with your coffee, and it slows down that release of caffeine. You don’t really need any fluids, and you don’t get hungry. Your cognizant function goes through the roof. You’re able to basically train all day without getting tired, without those blood sugar spikes.
Viewpoint: Not Quite Finished

Renowned buzz killers’ rational thinking and hindsight have a knack
for ruining the in-the-moment magic that causes us to breathlessly
speak in glowing superlatives the night before.
That goes double for MMA.
The surreal took center stage on Saturday in Cincinnati. Underdogs
ran rampant, Soa Palelei
smooched then serenaded and a cartoonish caricature of Chuck
Liddell patrolled the U.S. Bank Arena. With all that going on,
it is not hard to understand why we might want a
journeyman-turned-contender who once nearly died of a heroin
overdose to have co-authored something warranting a “best ever,” or
at least “best now” designation.
For five minutes, Matt Brown
and Erick Silva
earned every single one of the post-fight accolades they would
later receive. Living up to his reputation for rocketing out of the
gate, Silva dropped “The Immortal” with a body shot and then jumped
on his opponent’s back in pursuit of a rear-naked choke early in
the opening period.

Erick Silva looking to make big changes after latest loss: 'I have to find these flaws'
I've faced a very tough guy. I was surprised by his will. I remember that I was on his back and he was screaming because of the pain. He persisted, he had his merits. He is tough, he has a lot of will and deserved the win. My body wasn't responding. It wasn't lack of training. I have to sit with my team and analyse everything, my mistakes, the weight cut, if that was the reason. Anyway, I don't want to blame anything. I've seen in this fight that my place isn't yet to be fighting with the top guys. These guys are too far ahead of me. But I won't give up. I'll continue in my path, climbing step by step.

The 2014 NBA playoffs have been rather chippy, to say the least . During game 4 of the Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder series yesterday, Thunder power-forward Serge Ibaka responded to a shove from Blake Griffin by switching to southpaw stance and landing a lead right hook directly to Griffin’s crotch. Griffin limped off downcourt following the punch, very much like a man who had just had his nuts racked .
