The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The work week is upon us, which means another installment of MiddleEasy's Sunday Morning Rumor Mill. For you, maybe -- but everyday is a work day over here.

So after UFC 163 many of you expect us to provide some answers to life's most puzzling questions. Well we do our best with what we have. Don't look at the SMRM as some sort of divinatory device. It's just a collection of rumors that we've heard over the week that may or may not be true. That's it.

Now, on to the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.

.According to Tommy Messano, the UFC edited Lyoto Machida's post-fight speech to remove a part about Lyoto asking about the UFC ruleset following the judging from last night's UFC 163.

.There's been talk of Scott Coker taking over Bjorn Rebney's role at Bellator. In April 2014 his contract with ZUFFA will be up, which means that technically he could transition over to Bellator. Another name I've heard mentioned to be the CEO of Bellator is Jerry Millen, former executive from Pride FC.

.There was a rumor going around that Rampage Jackson would be allowed to use TRT in his upcoming fight with Tito Ortiz. Apparently this is not the case.

.Bellator still seems to be planning a Roy Jones vs. Rampage Jackson matchup.

.Not really a rumor, but Jose Aldo did fracture his foot in his fight against The Korean Zombie and he will be out for up to two months.

That's it! Not much this week!

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.
