– Josh Gross of Sports Illustrated has an article that chronicles the state of Rampage’s mind. As you could guess, that in itself is worth a read. Check the article out here. The article also contains a link to pictures of Rampage’s arrest. You can see the pictures here.
– Tito Ortiz has released an autobiography. He talks to The Sun about it here, which includes his thoughts on his fights with Forrest Griffin and Ken Shamrock.
– The Wrestling Observer (www.f4wonline.com) reports that Affliction fighter Justin Levens failed a drug test for Oxymorphone. Apparently the cut line is 120 ng/mL and Levens clocked in at 10,141 ng/mL. I guess if you are going to get caught you may as well make sure it was worth it. Impressive. Also, James Irvin from UFC tested positive for Methadone and Oxymorphone in his loss to Anderson Silva on July 19th.
– The Wrestling Observer also reports that both Gary Shaw and Doug DeLuca have stepped down from the EliteXC Board. It seems that both still have roles with the company, however. Less is more with Gary Shaw, in my eyes, so I’m happy to not have to see him as much at these shows.
