The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

Not many people can remember what happened last night after Ubereem vanquished Brett Rogers with his K-1 level striking. Before we get on with the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill, it’s important to note that Rogers just faced two of the greatest heavyweights in MMA back-to-back and lost. The dude is no where near a tomato can.

  • Eddie Alvarez vs. Gilbert Melendez is in the works. Still no word as to where the fight will take place.
  • Shine Fights is extinct. The promotion plans to close it’s doors by the end of the month and perhaps still face a legal battle from Don King.
  • Cris Cyborg will be facing Jan Finney at Strikeforce Los Angeles and most guys will probably think she’s hot.
  • Mariusz Pudzianowski may back out of his Moosin fight due to a minor wrist injury he sustained at KSW 13.
  • Nick Diaz has insisted that Dream 14 be held in a ring instead of a cage.
  • Joe Lauzon vs. Dan Lauzon is in the works for UFC 118. Yes, that is nuts.
  • Fedor is open to fight Alistair Overeem but before the fight goes down, M-1 Global wants a serious overhaul to Fedor’s contract. We may be in contract negotiation hell again.
  • Kimbo Slice has been approached by Bellator to compete in their upcoming heavyweight tournament which will go down in August. Another rumor says Seth Petrelluzzi has also accepted an offer to compete in the tourney.
  • Din Thomas took a severe financial hit when Shine Fights was canceled. Apparently Din pulled some heavy corporate sponsors for his fight with Mayorga. Without the fight going down, he lost out on roughly twenty separate paychecks.
  • The UFC media ban on Sherdog has either already been lifted or will be removed before UFC 114.
  • A bout between Roger Gracie and Rafael Feijao will determine who will face King Mo in his first title defense.
