Bellator Re-Launches The Next Era of the Women’s Division - Bellator MMA
Newport Beach, Calif. ( August 14, 2014 ) – Bellator MMA has reestablished the women’s division with two of MMA’s top featherweights leading the forefront. Finding previous success in the female MMA game, Bellator President Scott Coker has added Marloes Coenen and Julia Budd to the roster to start the next era of the Bellator women’s division.

Paul Heyman: At 100% health, no fighter could have touched Brock Lesnar
"I think with all due respect to the rest of the division, I think Cain Velasquez is by far the most dominant heavyweight in UFC today," Paul Heyman, Lesnar's longtime friend and on-air WWE advocate, told FOX Sports recently. "As a champion, I think he's a noteworthy champion because I think he's going to clean out the entire division. That being said, Cain Velasquez stepped in the cage with Junior Dos Santos when Cain wasn't at 100 percent and he got knocked out in under 90 seconds. If that's not a demonstration of what happens when you enter the Octagon at less than 100 percent, I don't know what is. Brock Lesnar entered the Octagon against these people, Shane Carwin, even against Randy Couture, against Frank Mir, against Alistair Overeem, against Cain Velasquez at far less than 100 percent.

Club Kid Killer back in NYC
But it’s not all bad. The more I look, the more I like. For example, this summer I heard that, just before midnight, the billboards in Times Square are suddenly turned off and replaced with works of art. It’s the most creative idea on Earth. An updated, technological version of the pop-up art exhibits I set up in subway stations in the ’90s, it gives me chills.
Morning Report: Greg Jackson explains how Jon Jones injured himself training with Alistair Overeem
The announcement of the Nick Diaz / Anderson Silva had many fight fans watering at the mouth. To me, this shows just how big of a draw Nick Diaz is. Even though Nick Diaz is on a two fight losing streak, people are still clamoring to see him back in the cage. The fact that he will step into the cage to face arguably the greatest fighter of all time only sweetens the deal. The UFC is a business driven by polarizing figures, and right now there is no one more polarizing than Nick Diaz.
Joe Rogan and Friends
“One of the most complex and exciting stand-ups working in America today. Like an idealistic hippy stuck inside the body of a testosterone-pumped US marine. He’s been likened to late great US comedians such as Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, but although he exhibits a similar brand of furious indignation, his observations and revelations are entirely his own. His angry, insightful act is an absorbing battle between his raw libertarian instincts and his refined liberal sensibilities.”
--William Cook, The Guardian
A standup comedian for more than 20 years, Joe Rogan sells out theaters internationally with his inquisitive and intense comedic style. His third hour comedy special “Joe Rogan: Live from the Tabernacle” was released in December 2012 via his website. Rogan previously starred in two hour long specials, “Talking Monkeys in Space” (2009) now available on CD & DVD and “Joe Rogan Live” (2007) now available on DVD, and released the CD’s “Shiny Happy Jihad” (2007) and “I’m Gonna Be Dead Someday” (2000).
Back to School, Back to Eating Right! | The Dolce Diet
We’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day….it’s true! Breakfast gets our metabolism pumped up and ready to go for the rest of the day. Our first meal essentially wakes up our digestive system. Plus, a positive start usually breeds positive actions and decisions throughout the rest of the day. Eating breakfast will also help kids focus better in class and likely retain information and perform better. Test scores also tend be higher when students have been properly fueled from the get-go. A quick, easy (and 100% Dolce-Approved) breakfast for your kids is none other than the famous Breakfast Bowl! The Breakfast Bowl isn’t just for adults!

On the Cusp: An Interview with Ryan Bader | FIGHTLAND
What was it about wrestling that kept you in the sport for so long?
I always loved it because it’s a team sport, but it’s an individual sport. I love the comradery; it’s a different comradery to any other sport. I’ve played football and baseball, but wrestling day in and day out, and knowing how hard it is and watching your guys next to you go through the same thing, cutting weight together and then going out and competing individually. Usually you have a team and your points add up to a team. But you’re out there wrestling for yourself; it’s all up to you and how much work you put in to get that result. If you haven’t been working hard it will show. If you have and you’ve been busting your ass, then it’ll show too. I just love that aspect of it and had fun with it. MMA is pretty much the same deal, you have your people and teammates around you, people who push you and help you get to where you are. But ultimately, you have to go out there, and you have to perform.

"Anderson is obviously a massive star, but when you're there and you see him day to day, it lets you know he's human," Jouban said. "We look at guys at that level as heroes, as if they're invincible, and we put them on a pedestal. But then you get in the gym with him and you see him train and drilling and trying to get better. You see the repetitions and you see him training to learn the new techniques and how he overcomes his not-so-great days.

"Hi Pauline Nordin & Fighter Diet! I wanted to write an email to say THANK YOU.
I began following your website about a year ago, when you used to write blogs instead of the facebook page. Immediately, I was HOOKED on your posts and straightforward nature.

I bought the contest prep e-book to prep for my first NPC Bikini show.
Due to dairy and nut allergy, I made minor adjustments but otherwise followed exactly. I couldn't even eat ALL of those green beans for dinner! I gave myself over 3 months to prep since I needed to build and shape my backside AND drop fat. I dropped 13 pounds from July to October, and main

Bellator signs Marloes Coenan, Julia Budd to open women's 145-pound division
Marloes Coenen , a former Strikeforce champion, and Julia Budd , who also fought in Scott Coker's original promotion, were the first two fighters announced Thursday morning as part of Bellator's plans of bringing women's fighting back with a 145-pound weight class division. Bellator, now run by Coker, announced that Coenen and Budd are scheduled to square off later this year in a fight on Spike TV. Coenen and Budd had both been fighting for Invicta. Invicta President Shannon Knapp said that Coenen's contract expired a few months ago, and Budd had been working on a single fight deal. "We're incredibly excited top to bring in two of the best athletes competing in our sport today," said Coker. "We are making a commitment to bring back the female division to Bellator, and feature some of the world's best in the Bellator cage." Bellator had discontinued using women fights in 2013. It is notable Bellator is opening up its first division at 145 pounds, a weight class the UFC doesn't feature. Coenen had fought at 135 at times during her career, but when the UFC opened up the division in 2013, she cited she no longer wanted to cut that much weight, and ended up with Invicta.
UFC newcomer Frankie Saenz: 'I have no gimmick; I just love to scrap'

Further action out of California last Sunday, with UFC vet Chase Gormley squaring off with MMA iron man Tony Lopez in the co-main event of Chaos at the Casino 5. Gormley, who went 0-2 in the UFC, took the TKO victory after a knee injury prevented Lopez from continuing. Gormley, now 10-4-0 (1NC) overall, is 4-2 since he was released from the UFC in early 2010, and he's now won three in a row. Lopez's record falls to 34-15-0. He's is 2-5 since 2013.
UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs. Nelson fight card
This is a solid card for Fight Pass and quite frankly would make a very good Fox Sports 1 show. Hunt and Nelson are proven top 10 heavyweights with high potential to deliver fight-ending blows, Jury vs. Gomi is great prospect vs. veteran matchmaking. Akiyama's UFC comeback is rumored to have impregnated 7 different female species, and Kyoji Horiguchi is just a brutal wrecking ball of violence. I'd certainly get up at an ungodly hour to watch this card live.

UFN 47's Jussier Formiga: As with Cariaso's title shot, rankings 'not very useful'

Newly minted WSOF featherweight champion Rick Glenn sees two paths for his immediate future in the promotion. One offers competitive satisfaction while the other might be more personal..
“They offered me Lance Palmer right away,” Glenn told MMAjunkie Radio. “I’m interested in that. Of course, I’m the type of guy that says I’ll take whatever you give me. I’m here to fight..
“I want to move on. I’ve (also) had to fight guys twice in the past that weren’t happy with me beating them. Of course, they underestimated me. I don’t look like much right now; I don’t have my helmet on.”.
About a month after Glenn (15-2) took off his trademark gladiator helmet, the guy he beat for the WSOF title started chirping about his loss. Georgi Karakhanyan (23-4) went on MMAjunkie Radio to say the new champ isn’t that good and that a rib injury was partially to blame for his performance, which ended when he was unable to answer the bell for the third round..
Obviously, that’s not encouraging feedback for Glenn, who trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee and hasn’t lost in four years and 13 fights.

A win and the Haitian American fighter takes a big step toward a light heavyweight title shot. A loss would halt his rapid ascent in mixed martial arts.

I think she can show her talent better at 145lbs and I really want to fight her.

UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. St. Preux - Thiago Tavares vs. Robbie Peralta Preview and Prognostication
At 29 years of age, Thiago has long since lost that nu-car sheen, and he's clearly hoping that a change of scenery will revitalize his career. When fighters do this late in the game, it's often because they understand, whether they know it or not, that they can't contend in their current division. Which is fine. But for Tavares, the problem is that he's in the wrong trade. You simply can't get by being a grappling specialist anymore. Sure, his striking has improved. Ironically, it didn't exist at all when he was winning more. But he's never grown comfortable on the feet, and that problem will follow him at 145.
Mark Bocek says UFC’s commitment to inexperienced women fighters contributed to his decision to retire
On Monday, Mark Bocek appeared on The MMA Hour and detailed the primary reasons that he decided to step away from fighting after a successful fighting career at 32 years old. The Canadian’s timing was peculiar in that he was coming off a victory against Mike De La Torre at the TUF Nations finale in Quebec City this past April. It turns out there were many reasons -- beginning with the "rampant" problem MMA has with performance enhancing drugs -- that went into Bocek’s decision to retire. And on Monday, given the platform, the Canadian fighter was more than willing to get some things off his chest. Besides the PED epidemic, Bocek cited a fear of brain damage after years in the gym sparring and exacting a toll, as well as the UFC’s (and fan’s) disenchantment for grapplers, who are often relegated to the undercard when they don’t put on a show. Bocek, a jiu-jitsu practitioner with wrestling roots, fit the mold of his discontent. He also pointed to the dilution of the product in general, saying that there were so many UFC events these days that he couldn’t keep up. "In the end, the fans control a lot," he said.
Joseph Duffy, last to beat Conor McGregor, talks MMA comeback at Cage Warriors 70

UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. Saint Preux Crystal Ball Predictions
Of course, that doesn't mean Bader will win. Saint Preux is a different kind of athlete. He played high-level college football at Tennessee and has taken to MMA quite well. His skills have become quite technical and when you add in his natural speed and agility, he's a frightening matchup for just about anyone at 205. OSP's problem is that he's 31 and likely past his athletic prime, if not his technical prime. If he were 27, he would be scary -- possibly a future champ. Bader's seasoning will be a little too much here, but it'll be close.
5 Reasons to Watch: UFC Fight Night on FOX Sports 1: Bader vs. Saint Preux
This weekend marks the UFC's debut in Bangor, Maine, with a UFC Fight Night on FOX Sports 1 card headlined by top 10-ranked light heavyweights Ryan Bader and Ovince Saint Preux. The two fighters competed at UFC 174 together and with both coming out victorious, it didn't take UFC matchmakers long to put this bout together as a main event.
