The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

We had a few people on location in St. Louis for last night’s Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu, or as someone on Twitter called it: ‘Strikeforce: Brain Damage’. There’s not much in this week’s edition of the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill. Traditionally, news tends to evaporate around this time of the year and will continue to do so until New Year’s Eve hits and you drunkenly hit on your supervisor’s daughter. The news, you will be the center of it. Enjoy this week’s Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.

  • Robbie Lawler and Scott Coker exchanged words last night after the fight. Not sure what was being said, however Lawler was visibly upset.
  • Paul Daley wants to fight KJ Noons but it appears that he’s still injured from his October 9th fight with Nick Diaz. Look for Paul Daley vs. Marius Zaromskis to happen in 2011.
  • Tyron Woodley will headline the next Strikeforce Challengers against Tarec Saffiedine, but look for Woodley to headline a number of Strikeforce Challengers events next year as per his request.
  • Paul Daley’s camp wants a lot of fights in 2011.
  • Scott Smith took last night’s loss very hard. Don’t expect Smith to cut down to 170lbs anytime soon.
  • Contrary to some early reports, Dan Henderson’s hand is not broken.
  • Also, in his post-fight interview, Henderson said he feels comfortable at light heavyweight. However after the fight, Henderson was in a good mood and said that he ‘wouldn’t rule out going back down to 185’.
  • Heard this one from a manager of a large hotel in San Diego, although from the moment he told me, I instantly thought it was garbage. However, this guy insists that it happened so in the true nature of The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill, I’ll relay the rumor on to all of you. At some point in early 2009, Nick Diaz and KJ Noon allegedly got a scuffle on the rooftop of a San Diego hotel. Punches were exchanged and it was quickly broken up. Apparently KJ Noons’ dad was somehow involved in the scuffle. The only reason why I’m publishing this is solely because they guy who told me was adamant the altercation occurred while he managed the hotel.
  • I contacted EA Sports to get an official statement on the EA Sports MMA sequel that was somewhat confirmed in the media last week. The company responded with ‘We don’t have any further comments regarding the issue’. Feel free to interpret that response however you may.
  • The FDA has never defined what a hormone deficiency really is, so any doctor can interpret the results however he/she wants. In short, Chael Sonnen is a genius.
