MMA News – June 24, 2011

  • In what is perhaps the best match making in MMA history, Ken Shamrock and James Toney are tentatively scheduled to fight for an unnamed promotion in the fall.  I really hope this comes to fruition as this is the pinnacle of freak show fighting.  This fight would be the spectacle to end all spectacles and I hope that this entire card is littered with big names who are considered MMA maladies such as Kimbo Slice and Mariusz Pudzianowski.  Holy shit, what can we do to get those two guys to fight!?
  • Evangelista Santos has been forced to pull out of his July 30 fight with Paul Daley.  Very unfortunate, but we’re still more than a month away and Strikeforce could potentially find a suitable replacement at this point.  Tyron Woodley or a middle tier UFC fighter would work, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
  • Mizuto Hirota is scheduled to return to DEEP on the promotion’s 56 Impact card on August 26.  Hirota has been busy recovering from having his arm turned into a pool noodle by Shinya Aoki on New Year’s Eve in 2009.  I’m hopeful Hirota has recovered completely and will return to form, though I don’t know that a fighter can ever fully recover from something like that.
  • All fighters have made weight for tomorrow’s Bellator 46 card.  Be sure to check out my preview for that event, which should be out very early tomorrow morning.  Also make sure to watch tonight’s Strikeforce Challengers event on Showtime at 11:00 PM EST/10:00 PM CST.
