The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The fix is in. Sorry MMA conspiracy theorists, that was in reference to this week’s Sunday Morning Rumor Mill as in ‘your Sunday Morning Rumor Mill fix is in’. I mean who out there seriously thinks Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen was a ‘work’? Apparently a few of you do and in true rumor-like fashion, I’ve also included your bizarre theory in this week’s mill. Enjoy.

  • Dream 16 in September will most likely be another Dream vs. Sengoku event.
  • Aoki, Daley and Zaromskis have been removed From United Glory’s eight-man welterweight tournament due to ‘unreasonable’ contract demands.
  • George Sotiropolous vs. Takanori Gomi will go down at UFC 124.
  • Despite Thiago Alves not making weight, as of this morning Dana White has not insisted that he fight at middleweight.
  • Sarah Kaufman wants to fight Cris Cyborg at a catchweight of 140lbs.
  • Dana White is disappointed with the gate numbers UFC 117 pulled.
  • The CSAC is ‘toying’ with the use of ‘half-points’ in a new MMA scoring system.
  • Crazy rumor going around that Karo Parisyan was involved in the Roger Huerta ‘street brawl’.
  • Vitor Belfort will most likely be Anderson Silva’s next opponent and it will probably happen as late as 2011.
  • Fedor appearing inside the August/September edition of the UFC Magazine was apparently a large ‘editorial oversight’.
  • A lot of people who ordered the UFC 117 preliminaries online did not receive the programming in it’s entirety as promised.
  • You knew this was coming: Anderson Silva intentionally let Chael Sonnen punch him in the face and take him down only to pull off one of the greatest comebacks in MMA history.
  • A few days before UFC 117, Anderson Silva got an MRI in California.
  • According to Dana White, Roy Nelson vs. Shane Carwin is next on tap. Winner will get a title shot.
  • One major investor of Supremacy MMA recently pulled out of the project which may threaten further production of the game.
  • Not a rumor, but the phrase ‘UFC 117 stream’ trended on Google and Twitter last night during the event. ZUFFA’s copyright crusade seems to be a very long uphill battle.
