News and Notes

- Our rumors section has been updated…

- Our UFC 71 coverage will include our usual predictions on Friday and one of our patented live blogs on Saturday night of course…

- Scott went ahead and updated his mega post concerning the big possibility that the K-1 Dynamite!! USA might not be happening because of K-1 parent company FEG continually failing to adhere to the requests of the CSAC.

- Loretta Hunt of The Fight Network is reporting that Randy Couture and Wanderlei Silva will sit down at some point this week to discuss the possibility of Silva training and teaching at Couture’s gym in Las Vegas.

“Wanderlei and I sat down with our wives and we had lunch in Ohio,” said Couture. “He’s a very nice guy and we are both very interested in getting together to train. I’m looking for some Muay Thai influence to go with Xtreme Couture’s wrestling and other offerings, so there is a good possibility this could happen.”

- Speaking of Couture, he will also be filming a documentary for National Geographic this week titled “Fight Science”. The special will also include Bas Rutten and Dean Lister and will take a look at the mechanics behind the art of fighting.

- The latest issue of Sports Illustrated features UFC lightweight contender Roger Huerta on the front cover and has a feature article on the sport of MMA inside.
