In the world of mixed martial arts, there’s no doubt that Kimbo Slice is the most controversial figure in the sport. Either you are a big fan or you despise him.
Although he hasn’t fought since October when he lost, expect to see much more of Kimbo Slice. It was recently announced that he’ll be on The Ultimate Fighter — the popular reality television series on Spike.
MMA fans were already excited after it was announced that Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson were going to be coaches in the tenth season of The Ultimate Fighter. Now with Kimbo Slice added to the …read more
UFC 2009 Undisputed was released earlier this week and, from the screenshots, it looks like pretty realistic fighting game. The graphics look amazing, the extensive roster includes some of the world’s beat mixed martial arts fighters and, as them, players will get to fight it out in the world famous Octagon.
It seems like they put a lot of effort into getting this right for the UFC fans. The characters are modeled closely after their real-life counterparts, so much so that they breathe, sweat and move like the real thing! You’ll also be able to choose from a number of mixed …read more

Spike TV has announced that there will be open tryouts for season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter. Think you have what it takes to get in the octagon and possible win a 6 figure contract from the UFC? I haven’t received the official press release, but it appears that MMA Junkie has.
For the current information on The Ultimate Fighter 10 Tryouts visit MMA Junkie.
Doesn’t look like Ken Shamrock will be fighting Bobby Lashley at March Badness. According to MMA Junkie, Shamrock popped positive for banned substance after his last fight where he broke a 5 fight losing streak. He popped positive to Stanozolol, the same testosterone based synthetic anabolic that Chris Leben was suspended for after his fight with Michael Bisping at UFC 90. and two other anabolic substances.
Shamrock was fined $2500 and was given a 1 year suspension, which he has the right to appeal. What is there really to appeal? Way to go, Kenny. Just when everyone thought that you …read more

UFC Undisputed 2009 will be released on June 2nd for the Playstation3 and XBox 360. Here is a little more info and some screen-shots from the game.
The screen-shots look nice but I think they will smooth things out a bit more, plus it’s always a little different in screen-shots. You can view a video of the game in action here (Look how shiny they are!). Like any other game, it’s a bit exaggerated than real life. Still looks like it will be fun to play and I’ll definitely be adding it to my XBox 360 library.
Here is a video of Brock Lesnar’s first professional MMA fight vs. Min Soo Kim at Dynamite 2007 where he completely dominated his opponent. Yes, I know this is an old video, but it’s always fun to see an MMA fighter in his first fight. I’m not sure what Kim’s weight is, but he looks to be outweighed by at least 50 pounds. Lesnar’s rematch with Mir should be interesting…whenever that happens. He still has a lot of training and learning to do.
It’s official. 32 cast members have been selected for the UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter Season 9: US Vs. UK. Dan Henderson is coaching the U.S. team and Michael Bisping, winner of TUF season 3 will be coaching the UK team. The UFC never fails to cast some amazing fighters as coaches. Ok, well maybe season 2 had it’s flaws. I’d love to go down the list, but here is a link to read about the fighters instead of me listing and paraphrasing. As always, this should be another interesting season of The Ultimate Fighter.
