By Garrett Bailey
Quite a few MMA tidbits floating around the MMA “interwebs” today and I’m here to let you know what’s going down. Here’s the MMA Roundup for March 9.
Matt Hughes is talking yet again about a move to the 185lb division and mentioned Anderson Silva as one he would like to fight. He stated that this move could have happened sooner if Rich Franklin got beat by the late Evan Tanner, and Tanner would be an Ultimate Fighter Coach.
The UFC 96 salary totals have also been released, with Rampage Jackson being the top earner with $385,000. Ryan Madigan made just $3,000 dollars.
UFC newcomer Yoshihiro Akiyama may have an opponent for UFC 100 with Alan Belcher being the rumored fighter.
Strikeforce are opening the doors to the public in a press conference for their April 11 event. Headlined by Nick Diaz vs. Frank Shamrock the press conference is going to be held at the Avalon Hollywood March 12. Located at 1735 Vine St. in Los Angeles, the conference begins at noon pacific.
The new Ultimate Figther: UK vs. USA cast mebmer misfits have been announced. There are 32 of them. There’s no mini-Junie Browning like I feared. There were rumors, but alas, Junie’s little brah is not a cast member! Rejoice!
And the UFC ring girls are still hot. Sexy hot. Check out these pictures. I still maintain my stance that all ring girls should be naked! Who’s with me?
