“The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights”- episode 5 recap

Recently labeled “The Snitch” by his teammates, Matt Mitrione is battling through an injury to his shoulder during training, and wants to get a good old fashioned NFL cortisone shot to help out the injury.

Team “Rampage” is getting in a training session, with Coach “Rampage” reflecting on his 0-4 start. It’s easy to see that the losses are taking a toll on “Rampage”, as the coaching staff concentrates on Zak Jensen’s ground game, or lack there of.

The house has been pretty tame up to this point with the big men, but Wes Sims seems to think that Jensen has had some extra fun in the shower, nearly causing him to roll his ankle from the slip-n-slide action.

PRO MMA Exclusive – Seth Petruzelli sets the record straight

by:  Cory Brady

In the years to come one may possibly look back on the MMA career of Seth Petruzelli and define it pre- and post-Kimbo, depending on how things unfold over the next few weeks and months ahead.

PRO MMA had a talk with Seth prior to his appearance at the EliteXC event on Oct. 4 where he was scheduled to fight Aaron Rosa. None of us had any inclination whatsoever Seth would be fighting Kimbo Slice, least of all Seth himself. But destiny has a funny way of working itself out regardless of our plans or intentions.

As we spoke with Seth prior to the Oct. 4th event, he had this to say, “I know I still have a few fans out there but I’ve been out for a year so my name has kind of gotten lost in the mix so I’m definitely looking to come in and make a big splash in EliteXC.

Evan Tanner – Rest in Peace

Evan Tanner , former UFC middleweight champion, is no longer with us.  He was found deceased Monday, September 8th near Palo Verde, California.

Tanner wrote often in his blogs on Myspace.com and Spike.com about taking trips into the wild to get his head straight and as he would put it, “cleanse himself”.  He had expressed interest in taking another trip recently. Here is a portion of Tanner’s blog on Spike.com from August 16th, 2008.

“I’ve been gathering my gear for this adventure for over a month, not a long time by most standards, but far too long for my impatient nature. Being a minimalist by nature, wanting to carry only the essentials, and being extremely particular, it has been a little difficult to find just the right equipment. I plan on going so deep into the desert, that any failure of my equipment, could cost me my life. I’ve been doing a great deal of research and study. I want to know all I can about where I’m going, and I want to make sure I have the best equipment.
