The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

Another start of another week of another month of another year and we still don’t fully understand who purchased the IFL. In the grand scheme of things, it pales in comparison to the fact that Inception will be the most mind-blowing thing you will witness this year. My pattern of thought has shifted since viewing the movie last night under the influence of awe. Luckily, this week’s Sunday Morning Rumor Mill was wholly compose before my cerebellum exploded in my skull yesterday. Enjoy.

  • Herschel Walker will be fighting October 16th in Strikeforce Dallas against an unnamed opponent. This is not much of a rumor, but what Herschel Walker said in a conversation. Would not be surprised if this is the same card that will have Batista vs. Lashley.
  • Genki Sudo’s musical group, World Order, may have some tour dates in the US to promote their newly released album.
  • Sarah Kaufman defending her title against Roxanne Modafferi will not be the headliner at Strikeforce Challengers because the organization was not ‘overly impressed’ with her previous three unanimous decision wins. Personally, I think Kaufman is the most dominate 135lber the MMA world has ever seen.
  • Mike Tyson may be an unlockable character in EA Sports MMA.
  • A Korean based robot company has been in talks with FEG to produce an MMA show with ‘robotic fighters’ similar to this small exhibition.
  • M-1 Global plans to open an office or branch in New Jersey which seems paradoxical since their Holland office has closed in the course of a week.
  • M-1 Global still owes the winner of the 2009 M-1 Challenge, Russian Legion, a $50,000 win bonus.
  • PUJI’s investment (or financial ‘promise’) to FEG is more in the upwards of $300 million than the previously reported $200-250 million.
  • M-1 Global will not have a M-1 Challenge series this year.
  • Impact FC still maintains they would like to expand into international markets as early as this year.
  • Bjorn Rebny and Mark Pavelich seem pretty adamant on having Paul Daley in their roster but the decision seems to be contingent on the punishment handed down by the athletic commission in regards to Daley’s UFC 113 post-fight incident.
  • Some fighters from Shine’s ‘World Collide’ card have still not been paid.
  • During the reign of EliteXC, Gary Shaw was allegedly accused of inappropriate sexual conduct against an employee in 2007. It was settled before a lawsuit was filed.
