The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

Congratulations, you've lived to see another Sunday on this planet. Our reward to you at MiddleEasy is yet another Sunday Morning Rumor Mill. We're the only site that rewards you just for living. Consider yourself privileged to read these words because let's face it, the dead doesn't have the best reading comprehension.

Aside from Invicta FC, it was a pretty laid back weekend in the MMA world. Dana White announced Weidman vs. Silva II (something we already knew) and Cris Cyborg mauled another unfortunate victim in the form of Marloes Coenen (something we already knew, we love you Marloes). In this Sunday Morning Rumor Mill we can guarantee to shed some light on stuff you didn't already know, or at least we like to believe so. Check it out.

.Randy Couture wants to get back into acting so it appears Spike TV will make a scripted show based around a character Randy Couture plays. I can 100% assure you it will be a combat sports themed show drama/action series.

.Bellator appears to be expanding their operation. I'm not quite sure what that means, but that's what I was told.

.There's a rumor going around that at some point in 2014, Invicta FC will pull a reversal from what the UFC did and start including men in their promotion starting at bantamweight and featherweight.

.We've heard this throughout the years, but once again I was told some incredible stories in regards to how difficult it is to be employed under Bellator's Bjorn Rebney.

.This year we've heard a flurry of apologies from UFC fighters in regards to comments they've made about the organization. It probably goes without saying, but almost all of those apologies originate from PR people within FOX and the UFC dictating exactly what each fighter should say, word for word. In some cases, actually writing the apology for them.

.Announcer Jimmy Smith may be on his way out of Bellator. Forced out, actually.

.Sad news, but a major MMA outlet appears to be scaling back its coverage of the sport per a request from their parent company over the weekend.

.Michael Bisping visited the Wild Card's gym in Hollywood, CA to touch up on his stand-up for this upcoming fight against Mark Munoz. Apparently Bisping was going really hard in the ring and disrespecting his sparring partner, so a coach sent in a professional boxer to 'spar' with Bisping. Within minutes, this professional boxer knocked out Bisping as payback for disrespecting the Wild Card gym.

Zeus @MiddleEasy

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.
