Thanksgiving News

  • Bellator Fighting Championships has signed highly prized lightweight Eddie Alvarez. This is a solid addition to their proposed lightweight tournament. Before joining Bellator, Alvarez will fight on January 23 for his manager's regional promotion, Extreme Challenge.
  • ProElite has blocked Jake Shields from leaving for now. This is such a terrible situation for the fighters still under contract. Through no fault of their own, ProElite has gone out of business. I had tons of problems with the way EliteXC booked matches, produced events, and generally did just about any thing that involved putting on a MMA show. One thing I never had a problem with was the effort of their fighters. Stop making your fighters sit around and not earn a paycheck simply because you dopes could not run a company. Imagine if General Motors went out of business and they blocked all their former employees from getting new jobs. Sounds ridiculous, right? Welcome to Mixed Martial Arts.
  • Aren't you thankful I didn't have any lame posts today telling you about all the stupid stuff I'm thankful for? Yeah, me too.
