- Brendan Schaub To Join 'Ghost Adventures' This Friday Night (FightLine)
"Brendan Schaub will take a different kind of adventure this Friday night, as he joins the cast of Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. The show will investigate one of the scariest and most haunted houses in Denver, Colorado, where Schaub lives and trains. The Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in Denver was the site of an unsolved murder. Schaub will join hosts Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin."
- Howard Davis Jr. and Fight Time Promotions: Helping Others Make the First Step (BleacherReport)
"When looking at the careers of great figures in history, it isn’t so much a case of just being lucky; it’s taking the initiative when luck presents itself. That was certainly the case for Howard Davis Jr. following his successful boxing career. The former Olympian was working as a computer technician in New Jersey. Although he liked his new career choice, it wasn’t exactly the most accommodating of jobs."
- Exploring Bellator's MW Tournament using the Infinite Possibilities of the Multiverse (MiddleEasy)
"With the Bellator season six middleweight tournament just around the corner, we are provided the perfect opportunity to examine each fighter as if they existed in their own self-determined universe before watching these bubble universes collide on live television. There are eight fighters in the tournament so at least eight possible futures opened up when the matches were made..."
- Hot Potato: Natasha Wicks Is Back, Baby [25 PHOTOS] (CagePotato)
"When Natasha Wicks was released from the UFC in December 2009, she took a little part of our hearts with her. But in the greatest MMA comeback since Boetsch vs. Okami, our favorite curly-haired blonde is returning to ring girl duty for Invicta Fighting Championships’ all-female debut show, April 28th in Kansas City. In honor of this fantastic news, we’ve decided to pull together our 25 all-time favorite Natasha Wicks photos..."
- Man on a Mission: Bantamweight Chad George Interview Exclusive (MMAMania)
"The last two fights in my WEC career, it stopped becoming fun. It became that job you were just grinding on and everything was the same rinse and repeat process. There was nothing fun about it and I was fighting a tough guy and I had to focus complete on that which I still do, but there was no enjoyment in the training. It was harm yourself as much as possible and then get back up and do it again. - Chad George"
- Tony Ferguson Now Fights Thiago Tavares at UFC on FOX 3 (5thRound)

- Lorenzo Fertitta Will ‘Move Mountains’ For ‘UFC 100-Style Card’ This Fall If NY MMA Legalized (MMAConvert)
"When we come [to New York, we’re going to blow it out. We’re going to put on a ridiculous UFC 100-style card, stacked, big, open to the public weigh-ins, press conferences, after-parties, the whole deal. Everybody will be there. This is going to be an event that will remind you of 1971 when Ali fought Frazier for the first time and every celebrity in New York had to be there. - Lorenzo Fertitta"
- UFC Could go after Viewers of Illegal Streaming Website (MMAPayout)
"The Zuffa strategy is reminiscent of rock band Metallica’s legal battle against Napster in the late 1990s-2000s. Metallica sued Napster for copyright infringement and as an offspring of the litigation Metallica sued three universities (USC, Yale and Indiana University). ... In its lawsuit against the three colleges, Metallica (and Dr. Dre, another plaintiff) included slots for unnamed students in its lawsuit..."
- Did Rampage name-drop his UFC-friendly doctor? (FightOpinion)
"Rampage told Bas that his T level supposedly was 420 ng and that his ‘age management’ doctor put him on a program to get it to 600 ng, although Rampage wanted to do 800 ng but the doctor allegedly told him that he didn’t want him ‘to get into trouble.’ In Rampage’s comments to Karyn Bryant, he’s talking about Cheick Kongo ‘naturally’ being an example of someone with ‘1100 ng of T."
- Catching Up with Andreas Kraniotakes (Five Ounces of Pain)
"It is actually a really great honor for me. I’ve always wanted to compete for a championship belt in one of the big leagues, and I consider Cage Warriors to be one of the big leagues. I think I’ve done enough in the past year or so to put myself in that position, and to earn the title shot. It’s great to be there finally, and it would be even better to actually capture the belt. - Andreas Kraniotakes"
