This is old school goodness right here.  A UFC promo clip from 2002, one of Zuffa's earliest promos.  Lots of famous faces in this video.

M-1 Global insider Igor Karaev has confirmed that Fedor Emelianenko will still be fighting Fabricio Werdum, but the scheduled date has been altered from April to May.

Confusion has encircled the Russian fighter's immediate future after teammate Gegard Mousasi made a departure from M-1 Global, and a definitive plan for Emelianenko's next Strikeforce opponent had not been announced.

Carmine Zocchi is a good friend of mine and a great BJJ instructor and he's a fixture at pro and amatuer shows in New Jersey where his fighters do very well.  He'll be at Evolution AMMA on March 6 cornering the very talented Taj Abdul-Hakim.  You can train with Carmine at his school on the Brooklyn-Queens border.  Check out their website BrooklynQueensBJJ.com for details.

Caught up with Frankie "The Answer" Edgar at Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat show last Friday night.  We talked about his upcoming title fight at UFC 112 with BJ Penn.

In this wide ranging interview, legendary fighter Renzo Gracie talks about the difference between the old no hold barred days and today's rules.  Surprisingly, he thinks the sport was safer back then and explains why.  He also talks about his upcoming fight with Matt Hughes and avenging Royce Gracie's loss.  Plus a whole lot more good stuff.

Ricardo Almeida was at Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat show in Atlantic City last Friday.  In this interview he talks about fighting in NJ, cutting to 170 and about his opponent Matt Brown.

Note: The audio on the video makes it sound like I said Mike Brown instead of Matt Brown.  The audio man has been fired and is now living in a large cardboard box on the streets of Manhattan.

 

Amateur MMA in North Jersey is being well represented by a new promotion called Evolution AMMA, run by Steve Katz, Jose Suarez and Francisco Arcibal. Their first event was a big success and now they're holding their second show, this time in Rahway, NJ, at the Union County Performing Arts Center.

The card is chock full of talent.  These are the guys who will be the future stars in the big promotions and I am excited to once again be hosting the show from inside the cage.

Make sure to check out the Evolution AMMA website and pick up tickets for the show!  Complete card after the jump.
