  • Are there any benefits to the dying Japanese MMA scene?  MARLON SANDRO IN BELLATOR!
  • Houston Alexander and James Irvin will meet for the second time at Shark Fights 14.  I can say with absolutely no hesitation that I am not looking forward to this fight.  These are two of the best light heavyweights outside of the UFC and Strikeforce, but you know the saying about putting lipstick on a pig.  In this case, Shark Fights is the lipstick and Alexander and Irvin are pigs?  Or is Shark Fights the pig while Bas Rutten and Don Frye are the lipstick?  I’ve never been good with cliches.
  • The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale is shaping up, as bantamweight Demetrious Johnson and Renan Barao will square off.  This should be a very interesting fight and will be the biggest test for Barao to date.  This fight could go a long way in showing us how far the Brazilian can go in the UFC.
