The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

It probably was a rough night for you with all the action that went down over the weekend. Dream 14 on Saturday at 4am followed by UFC 114 just 15 hours later. If you saw both live then you won the insomniac olympics. I’m sorry that I can’t provide a prize for you, but I can assure you the next time we meet, I’ll give you a firm pat on the back. It’s Sunday and there are more rumors to be milled (or would that be mills to be rumored?). Enjoy.

  • In light of Badr Hari’s recent soccer kick at It’s Showtime, Hari said he will try to make another stint at the MMA world by the end of this year.
  • Despite Mach Sakurai’s loss at Dream 14, he will not retire from MMA.
  • UFC 119 will take place in Indianapolis and Meathead Mitrione vs. Joey Beltran will be featured on the card (or as I like to call it, The Mexicutioner vs. The Kimbocutioner).
  • Even though Ricardo Arona met with Dana White this weekend at UFC 114, a contract has not be ironed out yet.
  • Last night after UFC 114, I talked with someone from 20th Century Fox and they did not advertise on the card because they didn’t want to risk the outcome of their star being defeated.
  • Another 20th Century Fox rumor says that the company threatened to sue Rampage if he lost.
  • Apparently Dana White had a chance encounter at a business meeting with a Showtime executive and it’s confirmed, Dana really hates Showtime.
  • ZUFFA has talked with Sirius Satellite Radio on broadcasting live UFC events and past cards on the satellite network.
  • After UFC 114, Dana White met with Diego Sanchez and insisted that he drop in weight for his next UFC fight.
  • Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen had an encounter at the UFC Fan Expo and words were definitely exchanged.
