ADCC 2013 not in Brazil | China or Abu Dhabi are Possibilities for New Location

ADCC 2013 not in Brazil | China or Abu Dhabi are Possibilities for New Location

source: adcombat.com

Earlier today, we got a huge update on the ADCC 2013 that was supposed to take place in Sao Paulo Brazil. There has been some problems and that event can no longer take place there. The ADCC is now looking to host the event either in China or Abu Dhabi. Check out their details and press release below:

As many of you know ADCC will be holding another World Championship event this year. We were planning to return to one of our favorite venues. In 2001 ADCC left Abu Dhabi to circle the World, our first event was in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Brazil has the most ADCC Champions of any Country and the event in Sao Paulo was a great event that launched the ADCC career of many including Marcelo Garcia, Roger Gracie and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza to name a few. The ADCC Committee took this under consideration and decided to pursue that City for this year’s event. Needless to say we were looking forward to returning to Sao Paulo for this year’s edition. Up to a few weeks ago it was our plan to hold the event in Sao Paulo City, in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. We had a complete sponsorship package from the City Mayor’s office approved and confirmed, however, recently, we were informed that the agreement has been revoked; therefore we are forced to change venues. Brazil has the strongest tradition in our sport and due to this very unfortunate turn of events we have to seek a different location for the ADCC 2013 event.

As of now we are deciding whether to hold ADCC World Championships in either Abu Dhabi or China. We are very excited with the possibilities that each place offers and are looking forward to another great edition of our event.

Sincerely

ADCC Committee
What do you say? China or Abu Dhabi? Comment below.

White: 100 fighters to be cut soon

White: 100 fighters to be cut soon

source: mma.tv

A couple days ago, UFC fans were left in shock when the UFC released 15 fighters from their roster. Fighters including Jon Fitch, Paul Sass, Terry Etim, and more. Now, Dana White says there is still 100 more to be cut from the roster. What is your take on that? Details below on the story:

The MMA world was a little shocked on Wednesday when ZUFFA announced that 16 fighters had been cut from the roster, including Jon Fitch.

However, the 16 is apparently just the beginning – multiple sources are reporting that the UFC plans to cut 100 fighters from the roster.

MMAJunkie co-founder tweeted definitively:

John Morgan @MMAjunkieJohn
Surprised at some of names but not number of guys released by UFC. Was told they need to trim about 100 guys right now.

The information was confirmed by Ariel Helwani:

Ariel Helwani @arielhelwani
Dana says they are over 100 guys on the roster. The releases aren’t over, he says.

The cuts are presumably due to the unflux of fighters from Strikeforce, as well as the addition in the last year of two new divisions – the women’s 135 pound Bantamweight division, and the men’s 125 pound Flyweight division.

It’s believed that this is primarily down to the influx of new fighters into the UFC via Strikeforce, while the introduction of the woman’s 135lb division in addition to the 125lb men’s flyweight division last year has also played it’s part in the promotion now having a surplus of fighters for the 33 events they plan to hold in 2013.

Gareth A Davies ‏@GarethADaviesDT

100 more fighters going from @ufc roster says @danawhite – incredible

Mike Bohn ‏@MikeBohnMMA

Dana White says Urijah Faber might be the next to go if he loses on Saturday? Wow.

Adam Martin ‏@MMAdamMartin

Dana confirms the UFC will cut 100 more fighters.

 

@GarethADaviesDT: @360fov no insult you ll find I’m right the @ufc has 100 fighters more than they want on roster ‘over by 100’

Silva vs. Weidman in the works for July 6 fight

source: tatame.com

According to sources from tatame.com the fight we have all been waiting for, Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman, is in the works for July 6th, 2013. More details from them below:

Contacted by TATAME, Chris Weidman’s agent Dave Martin, confirmed that the UFC is interested in the fight for the Independence Day week, which should happen in Las Vegas. He said there have been initial contact to make the match, and Weidman waiting for a positive response from Zuffa.

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is 100% physically, and awaits the official announcement of his next fight, while meeting business commitments. His last performance took place at UFC Rio 3, when he knocked out Stephan Bonnar in a non-tile super fight without putting the title on the line.

The undefeated Weidman has not fought since his victory over Mark Munoz by knockout, and is coming off a shoulder injury.

Weidman has the tools to make it a really interesting fight. Who are you rooting for in this match up?
