The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

Jeez. Last night really happened, egh? According to quantum physics, in a universe with an infinite amount of time, if someone were to watch the replay of Fedor vs. Hendo, at some point the outcome would actually be different. Of course if this were to happen, we’re talking at some point in the trillions of trillions of years mark. However, in an infinite timeline, a hundred trillion years and one minute are essentially the same. The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill is here, and it comes at a tumultuous time in MMA. Enjoy.

  • As most of you already suspected, Fedor Emelianenko will be released from Strikeforce (although M-1 Global still claims that he’s an ‘M-1 fighter’). Apparently everyone at M-1 were well aware of this going into last night’s fight.
  • According to Jerry Millen, an ex-executive of M-1 Global, the organization owes him a large sum of money. We’re talking about more than most of you will get in a year. Millen claims that he currently posses M-1 Global’s tape library and that he will sell it within the next month in order to recoup some of the money that he is owed.
  • Jerry Millen also claims that M-1 Global has been ‘stealing’ money from Fedor since he inked his Strikeforce contract in 2009.
  • Apparently there’s a video floating around of Bloodstain Lane and Paul Daley repeatedly taking verbal jabs at Dana White.
  • Alistair Overeem was not cut from Strikeforce for the sole reason of fighting in the UFC. As of right now, he’s a DREAM fighter.
  • After the post-fight press conference, Miesha Tate and Marloes Coenen exchanged words. Miesha mentioned that ‘she always respected Marloes’ and then she walked away. Marloes sort of looked at her with some doubt.
  • Tim Kennedy refused to do most post-fight interviews. It’s rumored that he was extremely disappointed in the way his fight played out against Robbie Lawler.
  • Being that last night’s fight was M-1 Global’s first co-promotion with ZUFFA, M-1 had the power to credentialize outlets, which included a rather hefty portion of Eastern European MMA media. Needless to say, ZUFFA was not happy with the ‘media outlets’ M-1 Global accepted into last night’s card.
  • Joe Warren and the security inside the Sears Centre got into a minor, but hilarious altercation when he was denied access backstage.
  • After the fight, Bobby Green and JZ Cavalcante exchanged words backstage. A few media sources believed the outburst was ‘staged.’
