Dana White UFC 96 video blog #5

Here it is; PRO MMA (promma.info) is proud to feature the UFC President’s final video blog for UFC 96. Viewers get to see Dana and other people’s reaction at cage-side when the referee in the Matt Brown vs. Pete Sell fight stepped in to stop the fight for a TKO but then apparently changed his mind and allowed it to go on, and go on, and go on, while Sell continued to take enormous amounts of punishment.

“Octagon”- a ProMMA.info book review

If you want a written history on the UFC then this is not the book for you. If you read at a 2nd grade level like “The Mad One”, then this book is a must have.  All kidding aside, “Octagon” is a virtual pictorial documentary of the plethora of legendary MMA fighters both past and current that have bravely graced the Octagon.  

Lorenzo Fertitta provides the introduction and explains how the book started as a project but quickly morphed into a life of it’s own.  Here is a short excerpt from his introduction:

“These photos, whether action or still shots, reflect drama, emotion, the heart and soul of what it takes to be a professional athlete in a sport that can leave you a completely different person, be it physically, financially, or emotionally.  The drama is the main reason why the before and after photos Kevin has assembled are so compelling.   As an active art collector, I can say these are some of the best art photos I have ever seen.”

Anderson Silva Retiring And It’s Affect On The UFC

by:  Kelvin Hunt

Supposedly, UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva has told Brazilian cable channel SporTV, that he has “already gave his all and within one year will put aside his gloves.” If this quote is true, which so far has not been denied, it would be a sad day for many Spider Silva fans all around the world. He has cleared out the UFC middleweight division and tested the waters of the light heavyweight division with a first round KO of James Irvin.  However, there are at least five big fights I would love to see before Anderson Silva retires:

  • Anderson Silva vs. Chuck Liddell-Although Liddell is coming off a devastating KO loss to Rashad Evans…he is still a HUGE name in MMA.  That’s proven by over 4,000 people coming out in the Phillipines to see him work out as the UFC did some promotional touring in that country.
  • Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin-Griffen is arguably the best known fighter coming from the TUF show and is the current LHW champion.
  • Anderson Silva vs. “Rampage” Jackson-Jackson is the former LHW champion and a fan favorite
  • Anderson Silva vs. Randy Couture-I realize that Couture is currently fighting at HW, but he is the former LHW champion as well.  In fact, if he can’t get the Fedor fight done….why not fight the guy that’s right there with Fedor as the best P4P fighter in the world?
  • Anderson Silva vs. Cung Le-This fight would have to take place in California since that’s where the majority of Le’s fanbase resides.
