Here's Tito Ortiz from UFC Brazil in 1998.  He talks about fighting in the UFC for free so he could maintain his amatuer wrestling status.

Great insider's article about Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat show last week written by Mike Constantino of AMA Fight Club, home of the UFC's Miller brothers.  I also did a quick video interview with the man himself, former world kickboxing champion Lou Neglia.  Check out the vid, then the article.

From AMA Fight Club:

Mike Medrano making his debut fighting for AMA Fight Club fought a great fight in an absolute slugfest that saw both fighters trading huge blows. Medrano took an illegal knee to the face and his opponent Jose Viera was deducted a point for the illegal blow. This only fueled “Muscle Mike” as he came out in the third round and continued the slugfest then shot in and took Viera down. After a scramble, Mike snatched up a guillotine to win by submission in what earlier was a slugfest. Congratulations to Mike Medrano on a great victory!
