  • Two new fights have been added to the UFC’s fourth Versus event: Nik Lentz vs. Charles Oliveira and Matt Riddle vs. T.J. Grant.  I’ve included the picture of Nik Lentz so you can recognize him in order to turn off your TV.  Nik Lentz wins fights, but he’s also amongst the most boring fighters in MMA.  I love MMA fighters with wrestling skills, but I don’t love fighters who practice the discipline of hugging.
  • Strikeforce seems to have found Gina Carano a capable opponent: Sarah D’Alelio.  D’Alelio only has five fights in her young career and has only ever lost to Julie Kedzie.  She’ll definitely be a nice challenge for the returning Carano.
  • Rene Nazare is one of Bellator’s newest signings and he’ll likely be competing in the promotion’s next lightweight tournament.  Nazare holds a 7-0 record with a key win over PRIDE veteran Luiz Azeredo.  Bellator continues to sign promising young fighters and it seems like the best promotion for MMA prospects, especially at the lighter weight classes.
