Jordan Breen reports on the continuing hilarity at Impact FC's second press conference in Sydney, Australia: Middleweight Denis Kang, though obviously disinterested, is thoughtful in his responses and speaks at length about the ankle injury that hampered him before his bout with Alan Belcher, and the visa issues that kept him from training at American Top Team recently. However, his opponent, the notoriously eccentric Paulo Filho -- clad in a beige Venum shirt instead of his usual sleeveless flannel -- gives terse, bizarre answers to questions. Twice Filho responds to questions after Kang, simply mumbling, "I agree." When asked by fighter-stroke-commentator Elvis Sinosic what he did to train specifically for Kang, Filho offers, "I trained for him, specifically." "When are we eating?" Kang then asks promoter Tom Huggins. "I can't eat, so I don't really care," answers Glover Teixeira. Exchanges like this are the backbone of Impact FC press conferences. The press conference drags. Teixeira explains his visa situation, saying that he may have to wait up to 27 months for his green card. Former TUF cast member Jeremy May, sporting a quasi-Clay Guida mop, discusses the orphanage he and his father have opened, despite the fact May now looks like a cast member from "Jackass." K-1 convert Peter Graham says that it's normally his M.O. to talk trash, but because opponent Jim York's father is hospitalized after having a stroke, he's opted to refrain. Pens click, cell phones ring, and conversations in Portuguese create a symphony. Suddenly, something pierces my chest. Denis Kang has hurled a paper airplane made from an Impact FC flier at me. "It's a fighter plane," Kang says. I can't tell if he's intentionally making a pun or not.

"[Ken] comes in and freaks out, throws a computer monitor at me, and tells me what a terrible trainer I am, and how I'm driving him into the ground, and how I'm never gonna be a fighter, and I should leave. I was like 'What?' [...] I think he had a roid rage or something." -Frank Shamrock from a great new interview at Cageside Seats

Ken Shamrock loses legal battle against the UFC, UFC wants fees: "Ken Shamrock, who claimed Zuffa had violated certain contractual provisions of his final fight agreement, was demanding several hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation he claimed was due and owing from the UFC. Following a trial before the Honorable Susan H. Johnson, the Court entered a sixteen page written decision concluding that Ken Shamrock was to take nothing by way of its Complaint filed April 15, 2008, and judgment is rendered in favor of Zuffa, LLC dba the Ultimate Fighting Championship." "The UFC has a clear and unambiguous attorney fee clause in all of its contracts with fighters to the effect, that in the event a fighter loses any contractual challenge in court, that fighter will be responsible for paying our fees. Accordingly, we will be filing a motion to seek recovery of all of our expenses and fees which were occasioned by this lawsuit." HT: blog.canoe.ca
