The Legend is Back

What is it exactly that makes a Legend? Is it championships? Is it long lustrous careers? Is it victories over big name opponents? Mark Coleman (15-8 MMA, 6-3 UFC) possesses every one of those attributes, along with being inducted into the UFC hall of fame and being credited by many as the creator of the ground and pound.

Let’s get it on…again! Big John is back

“Let’s get it on!” will ring throughout the ears of fighters and fans yet again. It has been reported that Big John McCarthy’s return to the cage will begin at Strikeforce: Destruction on November 21st. This news comes hot off the heels of last month’s statement by McCarthy declaring his intentions of leaving The Fight Network.

McCarthy wore many hats throughout this last year; from color commentator with TKO and Hardcore Championship Fighting, to analyst for the Canadian cable channel.   However, the itch of being the third man in the ring or Octagon revisited the former Los Angeles police officer.

Why did he leave The Fight Network? McCarthy has been quoted saying “It just didn’t work out there.” While the details of his exodus from the Canadian cable channel may be unclear, McCarthy has had a few choice words for his former employer. “To all of the higher ups that have taken over the Fight Network over the last year I only have this to say… Shame on you.”
