Return of “The Monster” Kevin Randleman – TLOS exclusive

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion and recipient of the “Knockout of the Year” Award back in 2004 from Sportsbook.com for his KO of Mirko CroCop, the legend, Kevin “The Monster” Randleman stopped by to have a word with those wild and crazy guys from The Lights Out Show on Tuesday.

The Lights Out Show (www.thelightsoutshow.com), one of the most popular and most downloaded MMA radio shows/podcasts in the world, is a content-partner of PRO MMA (www.promma.info).

Randleman fought at PRIDE 32 back in 2006 where he lost to Shogun Rua by kneebar in Rd.1, then we didn’t hear from Randleman for a couple of years until he reappeared at Sengoku back in May of this year where he faced Ryo Kawamura and pulled of a unanimous decision victory. It’s good to know the 37 year-old “Monster” still has his heart in the game and here’s some of what had to say:

Randleman has been out of action mainly due to injuries. He has been battling a string of injuries including a torn ligament in his shoulder and a leg injury. According to Randleman, he even finished most of his last fight with the use of only one arm, hence the fight going to decision.

PRO MMA Exclusive: Benji Radach moves toward title fight

by: Cory Brady

Benji Radach is on cloud nine following the biggest win of his career this past weekend on CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights over Murilo “Ninja” Rua. Stepping out of the ashes of a career that has been riddled with injuries and setbacks, it is hard to blame him. The fight was a wild back and forth affair that saw both men hit the canvas before Radach was able to capitalize on a mistake made by Ninja to earn himself the knockout victory.

Radach seems to have turned a new page in his promising career and with all the attention that comes from such a high profile win, the sky is the limit for Benji right now. Wasting no time in figuring out who his next opponent will be, Benji has confirmed with PRO MMA that the next fight on his quest for EliteXC championship gold will most likely be against Scott Smith in February with the winner to face whoever survives the upcoming clash between Robbie Lawler vs. Joey Villasenor.

Joe Lauzon Calls Tapout TV Show Garbage

by:  Jack Bratcher

As most MMA fans know, the leading MMA clothing line and UFC sponsor, Tapout, has a television show that airs on Versus.  On the show, the Tapout crew made up of Mask, Skyscrape, and Punkass, travel around the country in their pimped out RV scouting out fighters to sponsor and  helping their fighters in various ways.  They are currently airing the second season and the show that Joe Lauzon is referring to is the second episode of this season which featured his brother, Dan “The Upgrade” Lauzon.

The Tapout crew arrives at Dan’s gym to watch him train and get a feel for how he looks in the cage.  Dan had an upcoming fight just a few days away, so apparently Dan was finished with the hardcore portion of his training regimen and was now at the stage where he was cutting the final few pounds of weight by staying active.
