Ed Soares defends Anderson Silva

UFC 97, which took place this past weekend, has provided plenty of topics for the blogger who is wishing to run up the number of comments on his site. Specifically, Anderson Silva’s performance against Thales Leites has come under heavy fire. Despite completely stifling his opponent’s offense and breaking the UFC record for consecutive wins, the champion has found himself in a firestorm of criticism.

Yesterday, Anderson Silva’s manager, Ed Soares was a guest on MMAJunkie Radio. He responded to many of the criticisms that have been hurled at his client.

Ed Soares wasted little time getting to the main crux of his point, “If the challenger does not come in to take the champion’s belt, then what else can the champion do?”

Big Time Fighter, Little Known Name

You would think that someone who has been fighting all around the world since 1998 and has fought big names such as Kazuo Misaki, Akihiro Gono, Murilo Rua, and Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller among others would make some huge noise in any organization. Well, recently acquired middleweight veteran Denis Kang (31-10-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will get a chance to do just that against Alan Belcher (13-5 MMA, 4-3 UFC) at UFC 93 in Dublin, Ireland.

Kang, who was acquired by the UFC late last year, has fought in many different types of organizations including Pride, K-1, and Dream. In a recent interview with TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), Kang talked about why he chose now to make the move to the UFC, “Ya well they made me a pretty good offer ya know and at the same time I just thought it was time for a change in my career. Ya know you see a lot of the better fighters go to the UFC now a days and I wanted to be a part of that,” Kang said.

Trigg hit with stick in MMA fight

by:  Jack Bratcher

Well, it finally happened.  After months of preparation and slowly moving from commentator to in-ring participant, Frank Trigg had his first official match within the TNA wrestling promotion.  Tonight’s match-up took place in Oshawa, Canada and aired live on TNA’s “No Surrender” pay per view.  It was billed as an MMA fight of three, five-minute rounds with victory only coming by submission or knockout.  Trigg’s opponent was “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles, a TNA superstar that Trigg has had an ongoing feud with ever since Styles attacked him from behind in a parking lot, mistaking him for Kurt Angle.

Trigg comes walking down the runway carrying an American flag, wearing a big grin, and decked out in his traditional MMA shorts with sponsor patches.  Once Trigg climbs in the ring, somehow a microphone magically appears and as he begins his monologue it’s obvious his role is the heel.  “This country really does suck!” Trigg tells the Canadian crowd.  He goes on to call them hicks and dishes out a few more insults. Then Trigg makes sure everyone knows that in the MMA world he is paid to punish his opponents.  He says, “What I like to do is hurt alot of people and by the looks of all you hayseeds I’d like to hurt you too.”

Trigg defeats Olympic gold medalist at Sengoku

by: Jack Bratcher

On August 24, 2008 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg stepped back into the ring after an eight month layoff to face Japanese Olympic gold-medalist Judoka, Makoto Takimoto. Trigg was a heavy favorite going into the fight with odds of -500 and Takimoto at +300 according to Sportsbook.com.

The first round was at a breakneck pace with Trigg clearly doing the most damage. Trigg looked impressive with his transitions, head movement, and a very solid all-around game. Whether it be standing, on his back, or in the mount, Trigg’s game continues to evolve. He looked comfortable in all aspects of the fight.

Don Frye – An American Bad Ass

by: Cory Brady

Don “The Predator” Frye is among the last of a dying breed. A real all-American bad ass. Believe it or not, Don actually ended up fighting for nothing but the love of fighting in his first bout, when the fighters pay fell through at the last minute. Don could have just turned around and went back to where he had come from, but he stepped up to the plate and the rest is MMA history. Don has fought all over the world in every elite fighting organization including UFC, Pride FC, K-1, Deep, King of the Cage, and more.  The man is nothing short of a living legend in MMA.

As we began our conversation Don started talking about possible retirement and I wanted nothing more than to change the subject. After the countless MMA memories Don has provided for all of us, I could not fathom this man they call The Predator really stepping away for good. Don will be one of those guys that people will miss more when he’s gone, unfortunately. If Don does decide to hang up his 5 oz. MMA gloves for good, we at Pro MMA would like to thank him on behalf of countless fans for all of the timeless memories this extraordinary athlete has provided for us. Thank you Don.
