MMA Rules: A Change for the Better?
May 6, 2013
After the recent succession of eye pokes, a lot of people looked to point the finger (which was the problem to begin with) toward officials and gloves as the reason for the injuries. Fans and fighters are calling for better refs, different gloves, or even different rules. The rules are one thing that Dana White likes to agree with on being changed, but it does not mean that the other options should not be explored . . .

Amir Sadollah vs. Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson set for Memorial Day Weekend Event

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

by Adam Martin


A brand new matchup between welterweights has been revealed, as well as a new event.

According to Dave Doyle of, who confirmed the bout with sources close to the fight, Amir Sadollah will take on Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson at a future UFC event planned for Memorial Day weekend. The card is rumored to take place May 25 in Las Vegas, NV.

Thompson (6-1) opened up his UFC career with a bang when he took out Dan Stittgen with a stunning head kick KO at UFC 143. The Karate-based striker had a ton of hype coming into the UFC and it only increased with the performance against Stittgen, but in his sophomore UFC effort against Matt Brown he was completely outwrestled and ended up losing a clear-cut decision. Thompson was supposed to make his comeback at UFC 154 this past November in Montreal against Besam Yousef but had to pull out with an injury. Now he gets the chance to fight a fellow striker in Sadollah, and the matchup should be fireworks.

Sadollah (6-4) was last seen competing at UFC on FUEL TV 5, dropping a decision to Dan Hardy. The winner of season seven of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Sadollah has fought all 10 of his pro fights in the UFC but has never been able to string together any sort of consistency, as he’s been in a won-one, lost-one, won-two, lost-one pattern ever since he made his debut in the Octagon. Sadollah’s best win came at UFC 106 when he was able to decision veteran fighter Phil Baroni and he also holds a notable victory over CB Dollaway.

Keep tuned to for news about this new UFC event, as we’ll break any fights that are announced.
