The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill coming at a period of the day that is definitely not morning. Although there are still excellent rumors in this week’s Sunday Morning Rumor Mill, perhaps today, it should be changed to The Sunday Afternoon Rumor Mill. That would require too much effort on my part, effort that I would rather use to walk to the local corner store and buy a pack of Advil Migraine. With no MMA going down this weekend, Saturday night was rough. Enjoy this week’s rumor mill.

  • The UFC signed Seth Petrelluzzi in order to prevent another MMA organization from promoting Kimbo Slice vs. Seth Petrelluzzi rematch, which would undoubtedly be a huge revenue earner.
  • Babalu plans to move to middleweight to avoid fighting is friend and training partner, King Mo.
  • The UFC picked up Stanislav Nedkov from Sengoku’s light heavyweight division to prevent King Mo from having a future opponent.
  • We broke the news that Fedor is running for political office in Russia, M-1 Global denied that Fedor will be retiring after his last two fights with Strikeforce. I can almost promise you that Fedor looks to defeat Werdum, then Overeem and then retire. The same source that confirmed the news with us is the same source that is denying it. Marinate on that folks.
  • James Toney has been training takedown defense in Sherman Oaks, California with two wrestlers, not a camp. Still no word on who they are.
  • Erin Toughill is still ironing a contract to take on the winner of Jan Finney vs. Cyborg.
  • The UFC planned to open a NYC office with Shane McMahon, but with the new UFC office opening in Toronto, those plans have subsided.
  • Phil Davis telling Joe Rogan to stop calling him ‘naturally talented’ was in response to a slightly racist ideology that all black athletes are ‘naturally talented’.
  • Jamie Yager will or has signed a UFC contract.
  • Kid Khaos dropped out of his Strikeforce bout against KJ Noons to deal with some domestic/family issues.
