Some big stories are breaking this week in MMA, so this is my attempt to catch up…
MMAJunkie.com has reported that WEC’s Leonard Garcia is facing major drug charges tied to a cocaine trafficking ring in Texas. More details are available at KCBD.com.
Here’s a story that we’re just hearing the beginning of: MMAJunkie.com has reported that Paul Bradley has signed with EliteXC. Why is this important? He’s part of the yet-to-air new season of UFC’s reality show.
Speaking of reality shows, Tito Ortiz will have a new series on G4, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The concept is that the former UFC Champ — who was recently voted off of The Apprentice and has one fight left on his UFC contract — teaches people how to fight so they can then settle their grudges in the cage.
There’s a lot of buzz about what’s next for Tim Sylvia, another former UFC Champ with one fight left on his contract. In fact, MMAWeekly.com is speculating that he’s done with UFC, will announce it today, and may even sign with his manager Monte Cox’ M-1 Global…
…an organization that recently put out a prses release announcing its officially severed ties with Fedor Emelianenko.
