PRO MMA exclusive interview: Mikey Burnett – “I will compete again”

Mikey Burnett knows about hard times. He has persevered through various personal issues, including a bitter divorce, and has been entrenched in a lawsuit for the past couple of years in relation to his appearance on season 4 of The Ultimate Fighter: The Comeback.

Despite the tough times and setbacks, Mikey Burnett is still standing, and is looking to come back yet again from his latest adversity, a severe neck injury that threatens his very livelihood.

It’s hard to believe he has been a part of the sport for so long, appearing way back at UFC 16, and then battling Pat Miletich at UFC Ultimate Brazil back in 1998 for the UFC’s Lightweight Title, which was later changed to the Welterweight division as we know it today.

Jason “Mayhem” Miller submits Kala Hose in “Kingdom MMA” main event

Jason “Mayhem” Miller returned to the ring Saturday night, April 18th, against Kala “Kolohe” Hose at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii in a middleweight match up in the inaugural event for the “Kingdom MMA” promotion.

Miller submitted Hose in the main event by rear naked choke at 2:23 of round number one. The fight did not stay long on the feet as Miller shot in early for the take down. Once on the ground, he mounted Hose and landed some vicious hammer fists causing the Hawaiian to give up his back, which then allowed Miller to sink in the choke.

After the fight, Miller thanked the Hawaiian crowd and announced his next fight would be in the DREAM organization. He also said people should check him out on Twitter (www.twitter.com/mayhemmiller).

New sponsor for “UFC 97: Redemption”

After a short running partnership with FullTilt Poker, the UFC has officially banned FullTilt as a sponsor. The ban will include any and all mention of FullTilt, on signage as well as fighter apparel.

Many thought this was due to the long debated illegality of online poker and/or the competition online gambling sites pose to traditional “brick and mortar” Casinos. Neither seems to be the case for the recent ban, rather a less conscience laden reason is the cause.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship, as well as multiple fighters, have now teamed up with UltimateBet for “UFC 97: Redemption”. Ultimate Bet, one of the largest online gambling networks, will be sponsoring the UFC promotion itself, as well as  Chuck Liddell, Mauricio Rua, Thales Leites, Anderson Silva, Krzystof Soszynski, Eliot Marshall, and Antoni Hardonk for UFC 97.
