I box at the gym. I train for the sport and self defense. Before that I did Tea Kwon Do. I love sparring and do it for the exercise. I don't have any plans to fight, concentrating on school and working is enough on plate. I do plan to start Vale Tudo maybe next summer. I would need to take some private lessons in BJJ and wrestling first.

The ring, mats and bags are shared side by side with the guys training MMA/Vale Tudo. It's a huge space of maybe 75 people on a given week night with two rings. I take part in a 20 person training session and St-Pierre can be rolling on the mats across the room with his partners when he's in town.

Leben looks like the lost his killer instinct. It seems to me that he threw out his game plan that got him to where he is now, and that's letting his hands go. I can't even count how many time Leben had Bisping hurt with a big hit, and instead of following up, stayed back and let things calm down. Leben needs a good mix between his previous style, and his current technical style. Until he finds that, he will not win.

As far as Bisping goes, he has already been named one of the next TUF coaches. The other coach is between Rich Franklin and Hendo. Since Rich has already done TUF and has recently moved to 205, it's almost a lock that Hendo will be the other coach, making a Bisping vs Hendo fight which is kinda ****ed, since IMO, Bisping should be fighting Anderson next.

I could see Bisping fighting Anderson but I think that fighting Hendo will prove that he's ready for that fight. I think it's a good call, to get Bisping a good fight at the highest level before fighting someone like Anderson. Not a knock on Bisping, but I don't think anyone he's fought could be considered at that level.

Koscheck unafraid of uphill climb

Koscheck agrees to two fights in six weeks. Koscheck v. Alvez Oct. 25 and then Koscheck v. Yoshida Dec. 10th. It sounds like if he can with them both he gets a shot at the winner of the Penn v. St. Pierre fight for the belt.

I don't know much about trainning but I know that is going to be a fricken bear to accomplish.

If he wins both fights he deserves it...that's two tough ones!

Another example of the UFC being petty, imo:

MMAPayout.com has confirmed a rift between the UFC and MMA apparel and collectible company MMA Authentic, best known for its CageFighter brand. MMAPayout.com has learned through multiple sources that CageFighter and other MMA Authentics brands have been banned from the Octagon and any UFC event.

The dispute is rumored to have arisen from a conflict over shelf space in Wal-mart stores.............................

WTF?

Also, if anybody cares, Luke Cummo was arrested on a DWI charge last week.

Absolutely, there is no doubt. If he can beat those two solid opponents in 6 weeks time, then he is definitely the #1 contender

So what do all my MMA bro's think about the demise of EliteXC? It definitely opens up the playing field for both the UFC and Affliction to bring on some new talent. Tom Atencio (VP for Affliction) has stated he may be interested in bringing Gina Carano and Chris Cyborg to their organization

You could see it coming from a mile away, Dustin. If Affliction is smart, they will add a womens division. There are alot of really good women fighters out there.

I would love to see Affliction take on a women's MMA division. It seems there's enough talent to float around to keep good matches going without overworking a select few (though more matches involving Carano I'd never turn down.. eye candy). Plus, at least when EliteXC was holding them, some of the women's matches were better than the men's!

The demise of EliteXC is not a suprise to people who have had interest in MMA before Elite came along. The list of fights was 'blah' and their headliner was a hack. Kimblow is likely back to the streets and most of the other fighters will be resigned to bar sponsored MMA events. The saddest part about this is that the womens division could go back into obscurity, because some of them are talented and I think Dana may be missing out by refusing to let women fight in the UFC.

I agree. The women's fights are better than the guy fights 90% of the time.

I actually found the womens division pretty interesting, hope Affliction will indeed add one in.
