The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

It may be the afternoon in your neck of the woods, but in California it’s still morning. Therefore, a new edition of The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill is in order. MFC, Shine and Shark Fights all delivered thoroughly entertaining cards this weekend which produced a few jaw-dropping moments. More importantly, we all realized that Antonio McKee should easily be ranked in the top five lightweights in MMA. To think differently is just ignorant. No one has handled Azevedo like McKee did at MFC 26. Unfortunately, McKee isn’t in this Sunday Morning Rumor Mill, Dan Quinn is. Enjoy.

  • At Bellator 28, a small riot broke out at the beginning of the Tony ‘Tractor’ Roberts vs. Kelvin Doss bout. Roughly twenty people were slugging it out which resulted in a 76-year-old man being removed from the facility in a stretcher.
  • People close to Dan Quinn told me that Dan has finally retired from MMA and is trying to pitch a screenplay to Dave Chappelle.
  • ‘Eve of Destruction’, Ohio’s first all-womens MMA event will be funded by HBO for a MMA related show/special/series they plan on doing in 2011.
  • HDNet is still working with Deep in order to broadcast an HD version of the upcoming Deep 50.
  • An alleged ZUFFA employee threatened Dan Quinn’s life over the phone. Pretty wild claim, but you can listen to the phone call yourself.
  • M-1 Global propagated a rumor that Fedor is in talks with the UFC in order to build leverage on ongoing contract negotiations with Strikeforce.
  • Keith Jardine will continue his MMA career despite losing five consecutive bouts.
  • Shine Fights plans to hold their fourth MMA event by the end of the year.
  • Yves Lavigne will be seeking legal action on the MMA website that allegedly fabricated an interview with him.
  • Jorge Santiago is in talks with Strikeforce on participating in their upcoming middleweight tournament.
  • The Shine Fights payroll for their one-night tournament was $200,000 and it seems all fighters were paid that night.
  • Heavy rumor that the UFC will be signing Jimi ‘The Poster Boy’ Manuwa from the UK to shake things up in the lightweight division.
