The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

In some island in the far Pacific, it’s still morning so temporally, this ‘Sunday Morning Rumor Mill’ is highly appropriate. Throughout the week, nuggets of information pass through MiddleEasy and instead of disregarding these morsels, we occasionally publish them in our weekly rumor mill. It’s the equivalent of two guys talking in a bar about stuff they’ve heard throughout the week, but in this scenario there is no cigarette smoke or readily available beers that can be consumed. It’s just you and your computer. Have fun.

  • The rumor of Todd Duffee vs. Fedor Emelianenko going down this June in Monaco is gaining some steam.
  • Ruslan Karaev will likely participate in ONE FC’s event in April slated for Malaysia.
  • Keith Kizer has apparently been inundated with emails from MMA fans that urge the Nevada State Athletic Commission to remove marijuana from their ‘banned substance’ list.
  • Former Strikeforce ring girl, Natalie Skyy, may replace Chandella Powell.
  • There seems to still be issues with Shinya Aoki’s Bellator contract for his upcoming fight against Eddie Alvarez.
  • Rob Van Dam is talking to the Diaz brothers to get them in a documentary regarding marijuana called ‘Boardwalk Hempire.’
  • Daniel Diaz, the former owner of Hitman Fight Gear is in the process of suing TapouT for alleged theft, embezzlement, tax evasion and money laundering. The lawsuit also states TapouT ‘ripped off’ every sponsored fighter by the company through adjusting the sale numbers of signature merchandise.
  • It’s rumored that the winner of Chan-Sung Jung vs. Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller will fight, and the winner of that hypothetical match-up will be Ben Henderson’s first title defense. Yeah, I know. It doesn’t make any sense, but it’s still heavily rumored.
  • Conspiracy theory alert, but it’s rumored that Arianny Celeste staged the nude balcony photos to take the attention off of Chandella Powell’s soft-core porn ordeal.
  • A fighter that recently signed to the UFC disclosed to the organization that he has ‘psychic powers’ and told executives that his ‘power’ was an unfair advantage against his opponents.
