    – Above is the latest “5 Things” featuring John Cena. Although most of the items are fairly well known – like that Cena once worked as a limo driver and that he wrestled in OVW as The Prototype – there was one interesting tidbit. It was noted that Cena was an uncredited extra in a gym scene with Goldberg in the WCW-backed movie Ready To Rumble, which released in 2000.

    – Speaking of Cena, for today only you can buy one get one free on Cena training gear at WWEShop.com. There is no code needed, just use this link.

    – ABS-CBN News has a story here about UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem appearing at SM Megamall in the Philippines earlier this week. Overeem, who defeated Lesnar via first-round TKO in Lesnar’s final MMA fight, was asked about his former opponent choosing to remain in WWE rather than go back to the UFC.

    “I think he’s made, for him, a good decision,” Overeem said. “Of course, me as a fight fan, I would love to see him back in the UFC.”

    “Brock is 40 years old,” Overeem noted. “He’s not getting any younger, and he’s been out of the game for several years. I mean, our fight was in 2011, so he’s been out of the UFC for four years. All our levels have been going up. His level has remained stagnant, maybe even gone down.”

  • Rampage Jackson Back On UFC 186 This Weekend, UFC-Reebok Pay Structure, Nate Quarry Exhibition

    Posted on April 22nd, 2015 No author. No comments
    ufcQuinton “Rampage” Jackson is back on this weekend’s UFC 186 show after an injunction that prevented him from fighting was overturned. Jackson’s previous employer, Bellator MMA had filed an injunction to keep him off the card, but things didn’t go their way this week.

    The 36-year old continued training despite being removed from the show and replaced by Steve Bosse. Jackson faces his original opponent, #12-ranked Fabio Maldonado. Since Jackson was just re-booked, the two agreed to a 215-pound catchweight fight as opposed to light heavyweight

    We’ll have full live coverage of UFC 186 Saturday starting with the preliminary bouts at 6:30 pm eastern.

    – Due to criticisms of UFC and Reebok’s originally planned sponsorship pay structure, the system has been overhauled. The two companies originally based the payouts on rankings as voted on by the media. Instead, the pay will be distributed based on tenure, including fights under the WEC and Strikeforce banners under Zuffa control.

    Many fighters have lost out on sponsors since the exclusive Reebok deal with UFC was announced. The deal will go in to effect this July, and will prohibit fighters from wearing outside brands to fight-week related activities.

    – Former UFC fighter Nate Quarry made headlines this week as he participated in an exhibition with 19-year old Jake Beckmann, who has Down’s Syndrome. After Quarry submitted in the second round to a leg lock, the promoters presented Beckmann with a championship belt. You can see video of the event below.

This is going to be one of the biggest heavyweight fights in years, and it’s guaranteed to be all-action from start to finish”.

    “We are pleased to have the UFC return to Rogers Arena.

    Plus, four other highly-anticipated matches will be featured on the main card as UFC heavyweight title contender Shane Carwin looks to jump right back in the title hunt when he faces dangerous ground fighter Jon Olav Einemo. Coming off his head-turning submission victory over Paul Kelly, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone takes on UFC vet Mac Danzig. Then submission specialist Demian Maia meets middleweight contender Mark Munoz, and crowd favorite Kenny Florian makes his featherweight debut against red-hot Diego Nunes.

    The most polarizing figure in all of mixed martial arts, former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (fighting out of Webster, South Dakota / professional record – 5-2) came onto the scene and earned the title in his third UFC fight with a dominating victory over legend and UFC Hall-of-Famer Randy Couture at UFC 91. A 2000 NCAA Division I national champion wrestler at the University of Minnesota, the 33-year-old has parlayed an impressive amateur wrestling career into a successful mixed martial arts one. With stoppage wins over Couture, Frank Mir and Shane Carwin, Lesnar is dangerous for any opponent and is focused on earning the UFC heavyweight title once again.

    With a perfect 6-0 record in the UFC, Junior dos Santos (fighting out of Santa Catarina, Brazil / 12-1) finished his first five fights against names such as Mirko Cro Cop, Gabriel Gonzaga, Gilbert Yvel, Stefan Struve and Fabricio Werdum. The 27-year-old rising star has one of the top striking games in the heavyweight division and showed his ability to go into deep water with his three-round unanimous decision victory against seasoned vet Roy “Big Country” Nelson in his last match at UFC 117.

    A fighter that was moments away from earning the UFC heavyweight title, Shane Carwin (fighting out of Greeley, Colo. / 12-1) took Lesnar to the brink of defeat in their epic UFC 116 battle before the then-champion was able to turn the tide back in his favor. The Lesnar fight marked the first time Carwin, a former college wrestler and football player, had ever been out of the first round, a streak that included stoppages over Frank Mir, Gabriel Gonzaga, Neil Wain and Christian Wellisch. But now the 36-year-old engineer looks to get back into the title picture with a win over the experienced Jon Olav Einemo.

    A fighter that is making his UFC debut against a tough, seasoned opponent, submission grappling ace Jon Olav Einemo (fighting out of Breda, Netherlands / 6-1) is a PRIDE® veteran and a very dangerous ground fighter that holds five of his six wins by submission. A 2003 champion in the esteemed Abu Dhabi world submission fighting championships, Einemo, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, is the only person to ever defeat ADCC legend Roger Gracie and now looks to parlay his grappling success into a memorable UFC career.

    Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M. / 14-3-0, 1 NC) returns to the Octagon® in search of his second straight UFC win. A fighter that can put opponents away with his impressive kick boxing or his relentless jiu-jitsu, the 28-year-old Denver, Colorado native put together a solid resume in the WEC with wins over Chris Horodecki, Jamie Varner, Ed Ratcliff, James Krause, Rob McCollough and Danny Castillo – and with a second-round submission over Paul Kelly in his UFC debut, the lightweight division better take notice because “Cowboy” just rode into town.

    A veteran of 30 professional fights, Mac Danzig (fighting out of Los Angeles, Calif. / 21-8-1) is a 31-year-old veteran that is now just hitting his stride. Coming off an impressive first-round stoppage over one-time UFC lightweight title contender Joe Stevenson at UFC 124 in Montreal, the Cleveland, Ohio native and proud vegan will be fighting for the third consecutive time in Canada and is becoming a crowd favorite north of the border. With four wins in the UFC, Danzig knows what it takes to succeed under the bright lights.

    One of the most decorated grapplers in the UFC, Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Demian Maia (fighting out of Sao Paolo, Brazil / 14-2) has five submission victories in the UFC over fighters such as Chael Sonnen, Nate Quarry, Jason MacDonald, Ed Herman and Ryan Jensen. The two-time world champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu has won three out of his last four fights with his only loss coming to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

    Another former NCAA Division I national champion wrestler turned successful mixed martial artist, Mark Munoz (fighting out of Vallejo, Calif. / 10-2) is riding a two-fight win streak, including a unanimous decision victory over Aaron Simpson and a first-round knockout over Simpson’s Arizona State friend and training partner CB Dollaway. A winner of five out of his last six fights, the versatile Munoz is dangerous on the ground and on his feet and is looking to burst into the title picture with a win against Maia.
