David Bixenspan Joins Press Row

Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Wrestling Observer contributor David Bixenspan . It nearly over 21 months ago, at UFC 181 , when the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced it had signed former World Wrestling Entertainment star “CM Punk” Phil Brooks . With Brooks finally scheduled for his MMA debut this Saturday night at UFC 203 against Mickey Gall , Breen and Bixenspan look at the surreal path en route to CM Punk's first fight. The two dig into the much-publicized stories of Brooks getting beat up in Roufusport smokers, their impressions of Brooks' training footage that has emerged and the Ohio Athletic Commission's curious choice to license Brooks and even stranger explanation of that decision. Breen and the “Between the Sheets” host also discuss how the pro-wrestling community's opinion of Brooks has changed over the last two years and should he be embarrassed as in the Octagon as most anticipate, how CM Punk's MMA foray will be remembered by both fans of the sport, as well as pro-wrestling fans, compared to the other infamous, real fighting attempts of pro-wrestlers.

Movie Review: ‘Hands of Stone’

“Raging Bull” remains the standard for all boxing films. “Cinderella Man” was another all-time classic, and the “Rocky” series is beloved by fans the world over. Now, a new contender waits in the shadows. How does “ Hands of Stone ” stack up against its predecessors? It’s safe to say that a biopic on the life of Panamanian legend Roberto Duran was a worthwhile endeavor. Edgar Ramirez portrays Duran and by all accounts does a fantastic job. While he won’t ever be confused as Duran’s twin, Ramirez went to great lengths to learn how to move like the hall of famer inside the ring. Director Jonathan Jakubowicz brought Duran and his story to life, but the film missed several key punches along the way. While screen icon Robert De Niro was expectedly solid as trainer Ray Arcel, the man who helped guide Duran to greatness, Jakubowicz seemed to go out of his way to make his side of the story closely resemble that of every other manager/trainer in every other boxing movie. His ties to the mob, his attempted murder and his banishment from the sport were all actual events, but the way they unfolded in “Hands of Stone” came off as hokey and cliché.

Josh Barnett Thinks ‘Heavyweight Championship Could Be in the Future’

Josh Barnett was rocked early in the opening round against Andrei Arlovski in the main event of UFC Fight Night “Arlovski vs. Barnett” ( online betting ) in Hamburg, Germany, on Saturday, but the former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion’s resilience paid off. Arlovski clipped “The Warmaster” with a sizzling right hand to the head, but Barnett answered with one of his own, only to get rubber-legged seconds later by another missile from the Belarusian. Barnett eventually wore Arlovski down and submitted him with a rear-naked choke in the third, but he claims he was never actually hurt in the battle. “I was never hurt in the fight,” he said at the post-fight press conference. “That’s more due to having either an abnormally thick skull or very little brain matter. I’ve taken the best shots from the best strikers.” Arlovski, also a former heavyweight champ, couldn’t put his foe away and eventually paid the price. His gas tank was depleted by Barnett’s aggressive catch wrestling gameplan and once Barnett had the ultimate advantage, he sealed the deal with a textbook rear-naked choke.

Ex-WSOF Champ Rick Glenn Replaces Trujillo, Meets Dunham at UFC Fight Night Hidalgo

Former World Series of Fighting featherweight champion Rick Glenn will make his Octagon debut against Evan Dunham at UFC Fight Night in Hidalgo on Sept. 17. Glenn replaces Abel Trujillo , who withdrew from the lightweight clash with an arm injury. Promotion officials announced the new matchup on Thursday. UFC Fight Night takes place at State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas and is headlined by a lightweight duel between Dustin Poirier and Michael Johnson . The evening’s main card will be televised on Fox Sports 1. Glenn, 27, has lost just once in his last 17 outings. He captured the WSOF 145-pound strap with a TKO triumph over Georgi Karakhanyan in June 2014 before relinquishing the title to Lance Palmer in his next outing. The Roufusport product has won three straight bouts since that defeat. Dunham, meanwhile, enters the matchup having bested Joe Lauzon , Ross Pearson and Rodrigo Damm in his last three Octagon appearances. The Xtreme Couture representative is 10-6 during his UFC tenure overall.

Opinion: No Matter the Outcome at UFC 203, CM Punk Wins

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. * * * This weekend Phil “CM Punk” Brooks will make his long awaited mixed martial arts debut at UFC 203 ( current odds ) against Mickey Gall . Much has been made about Punk since his signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship was announced back in December of 2014. Without a professional fight under his belt, he’ll get an opportunity that longtime MMA fighters may never get: a chance to appear on the main card of a pay-per-view. It’s the equivalent of somebody who loves hockey getting a shot at playing center in the all-star game without any experience. It’s like Serena Williams starting for the Los Angeles Sparks without ever scoring a point on a basketball court. Or how about Tim Tebow being signed by a Major League Baseball team just because he wants to swing a bat. Never mind the last one. Heaps of criticism has been launched at Punk since his signing as fans waited for the day that he’d finally step into the cage.

‘TUF 24’ Recap: Episode 2

After the obligatory highlights from Episode 1, it’s time to kick right into tonight’s show, which begins with the fighters piling back into the house after the pair of fights from last week. Team Cejudo is up to a quick 2-0 lead and initially everybody is still getting along at home but that doesn’t last too long. Jaime Alvarez and a few others are perplexed that Nkazimulo Zulu , who is from South Africa, apparently stashes his cooked food in the cupboards. Eric Shelton is miffed that Zulu is disrespectful in that he doesn’t appear too eager to make friends. Damacio Page and Zulu quickly have an argument over water at the sink and the guys in the house are already fed up with the dude’s behavior. After the early turmoil, the show shifts to clips of Zulu training and then of him tearing it up on the African circuit and he looks legit. Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White claims that he’s been compared to a young Anderson Silva because of his brilliant striking and Henry Cejudo raves about Zulu’s wicked knees. From there, Cejudo explains to Zulu that he not only needs to work on takedown defense but also off the mat and the former flyweight title challenger is working overtime in refining his ground game.

Ex-WSOF champ Rick Glenn signs with UFC, meets Evan Dunham at UFC Fight Night 94

Glenn won the WSOF featherweight title against Georgi Karakhanyan in June 2014. But later that year, at WSOF 16, he lost it to Lance Palmer in his first title defense with a third-round rear-naked choke. After that, Glenn rebounded with a second-round knockout of Adam Ward at WSOF 24 in October 2015, and most recently, he has a pair of wins in regional action to give him three straight and a 15-1-1 mark in the past six years.

Prior to that, he returned from a layoff of more than 30 months due to an 18-month stint in a Swedish prison for burglary, but dropped a decision to Norman Parke in October 2015 in Dublin. He has alternated wins and losses in his five-fight UFC career.

46 If He Beats CM Punk, Mickey Gall Says He'll Call Out Another Fighter | BJPenn.com

Of course, if Gall wins, he’ll find himself at a bit of an interesting juncture. Though he is far more experienced than Punk, he himself is just 2-0 as an amateur mixed martial artist – still incredibly green, to say the least. Given his experience, it’s hard to imagine a logical next-step for him in the shark-ridden waters of the UFC welterweight division.
