There's a lot going on in the world of MMA, and Bloody Elbow prides itself on being your one-stop news source for everything that's going on in the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator, and everywhere else. There's only so much time in the day though, and some stuff slips through the cracks. This new daily feature is an attempt to fill those cracks, will keep you up to date on all the little news you might have missed otherwise. Here we go.
- UFC Primetime is back at UFC 146 to focus on Junior dos Santos vs. Frank Mir (MMA Mania). Really? I guess JDS vs. Overeem would have made sense, but this? Maybe the contract was already signed or something.
- You thought Billy Evangelista was facing off with James Terry on the May 19th Strikeforce event? Nyet! Ex-King of the Cage champ Bobby Green is in for Billy E (via MMA Weekly).
- Nate Diaz and Johny Hendricks are guaranteed title shots if they win at UFC on Fox 3 (via MMA Fighting). Jim Miller and Josh Koscheck? Not so much. I get the logic but I'm sorry, Nate Diaz doesn't deserve a title shot either way.
- Dana White donates UFC stuff to the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada (via the Calgary Sun). Hate on Dana all you want, he does a lot of good stuff too.
- Alan Belcher is ready for Rousimar Palhares at UFC on Fox 3 (via MMA Fighting). I know a lot of you are Toquinho fans, but Belcher is a feel-good story and an interesting guy to boot.
- Did you know that Wanderlei Silva was video-blogging in preparation for his UFC 147 bout with Vitor Belfort? Well now you do. Here's part one, and here's part two. Subtitles are always helpful, no matter what language Wandy's speaking.
