We’ve got another Women’s MMA fighter heading to ESPN’s Body Magazine next month, Rampage has yet another new, non-combat project, and two UFC Heavyweights spit at each other on Twitter.


It looks like former Bellator Lightweight Champ Eddie Alvarez is going to be out of action for quite some time.  He’s neck deep in a lawsuit with Bellator over trying to get out of his contract with them.  The court has decided that the two sides don’t have to meet until after September 15th… of 2014.  This dude is just sitting on the sidelines waiting to fight in the UFC.  And instead of admitting that they really can’t match the UFC offer, Bellator wants to punish this guy and basically take away his earning potential and his living.  I want to like Bellator.  I really do.  But I see things like this and it just makes me crazy.
