Ladies and Gentlemen. There had been questions on both sides of the fence going into the fight. Was Carano not being able to make weight be an issue? Was Young ready to take on such a high profile fight? Could these two women stand up and steal the show from the guys?

Kimbo Slice, the bearded street fighter who parlayed his internet popularity into a mixed martial arts career and worldwide fame, has died. He was Carla Kmiotek said. The cause of death was still unclear. Kmiotek said there is no active police investigation, and no foul play is suspected. Born in the Bahamas and raised in the Miami area, Slice was a strip club bouncer and bodyguard who began competing in unsanctioned street fights in After gaining viral internet fame at a time when the phenomenon was still relatively new, Slice studied MMA and eventually competed for several promotions, including the UFC and Bellator, which staged his two most recent fights.
Outside of the cage he was a friendly, gentle giant and a devoted family man. His loss leaves us all with extremely heavy hearts. Slice was scheduled to headline the Bellator show in London next month in a bout against James Thompson. American Top Team, the prominent South Florida gym where Slice trained for many years, mourned his passing.

ProElite signed a deal to become the first MMA organization to broadcast live bouts on one of the major networks, and the Ultimate Fighting Championship finally landed the big-name national advertiser it has long sought. The first CBS bouts could air as soon as April. The promotion features such fighters as Kimbo Slice and Las Vegan Gina Carano, but no lineup or date has been confirmed for the first telecast. The UFC has long searched for a blue-chip advertiser, which it has found with Anheuser-Busch, namely its top-selling product Bud Light.
I think Budweiser is a strategic partner that is going to help us get there. The three-year deal includes placing the Bud Light logo in the center of the octagon at pay-per-view events. The event will feature mostly fights between competitors from Nevada-based gyms against fighters from gyms based in California. Larger gloves will be used and bouts will consist of either two or three 3-minute rounds, depending on experience. With some of the proceeds, the company hopes to set up a nonprofit organization to help underprivileged children participate in mixed martial arts.

The mixed martial arts fighter quickly becoming known just by his first name, very nearly lived up to his last name. Slice , known for his ferocious punching power, very nearly suffered his first loss as Thompson continually took the former streetfighting sensation down to the canvas and executed a ground-and-pound gameplan on the heavily-favored Slice. But Thompson, who dominated lengthy portions of the bout and looked to be close to winning the fight before the bell rang to end the second round, was unable to finish the fight and both fighters began the third and final round looking very weary.
It soon became clear that, while both fighters were tired, Slice was clearly still the more accurate puncher as he continued to land combinations that rocked Thompson, who entered the fight with a badly cauliflowered left ear. It was a memorable ending on a historic night for the sport of mixed martial arts, which was making its primetime debut on network television. While Slice was the feature attraction, meant to lure casual fans who had heard of his exploits from his days as a streetfighting legend on the Internet, the card also featured several other bouts featuring experienced MMA fighters with various martial arts and wrestling backgrounds.
Gina Carano interviews & news There was a tremendous turnout at the Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano open media workout Wednesday at Gina Carano is coming back to Strikeforce, we’ll tell you her tentative return date.
I love it. Carano likes to call herself a Nintendo girl who got stuck on Super Mario Bros. Here’s what else Carano had to say as we talked fighting, Gladiators, and that naked weigh-in that featured the accidental towel slip. Gina Carano: We’ll see, we’ll see, man. I want to be more involved in the video game world.
It’s a blast. EA has been a really great partner and have been really supportive in terms of getting me out there and coming to my fights. It has been a really cool relationship and it’s really been an eye-opener to a whole other world. There is a huge crossover between people who play video games and people who watch MMA, so it’s a great fit.
Gina Carano: [laughs] It’s just really raw and natural and the lifestyle really keeps you straight.
Street fighter and MMA pioneer Kimbo Slice dead at 42
They made a lot of transitions, a lot of positions, and I think Gina caught Cyborg with some shots that got her attention, and obviously Gina got overwhelmed on a couple of occasions, but I think overall, she did some great things. Up in October was followed by another six fights that all ended victoriously until in August in the main fight of the Strikeforce Carano vs. In addition, she was a part of the new edition of Gladiator Crush American Gladiators.
She may not have gotten the title, but did she finally get the respect she was looking for as a fighter — and not just a pretty face? With such a historic fight taking place, it seems only “Natural” that Carano would pull out all the stops in her attempt to defeat her toughest opponent to date. In fact, UFC brass have also added fuel to the speculative fire by suggesting it wouldn’t be out of bounds for Carano to face UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey in her first bout back after a five year hiatus.
In reality, most folks will tune in to watch Kimbo Slice take on Houston Alexander, and then to see the main event Gina Carano’s ESPN ‘Body’ Cover a Hit.
With the exception of the industry-leading Ultimate Fighting Championship, the story of the sport over the past few years seemed to be a race to see which companies can spend themselves out of business. But with Affliction closing its doors just eight days before its second scheduled event, and the Japanese Sengoku promotion seemingly on its last legs, joining up with rival Dream for the country’s annual New Year’s Eve event, the year ends with the industry largely dominated by three groups.
And none of the three seem in any danger of closing up shop. In , Zuffa continued to expand television into new countries and pursued new revenue streams, such as merchandising and licensing, most notably a successful video game that sold in the neighborhood of 3 million units. The year saw the company debut in Germany, and next year is set for inaugural shows in both Australia and likely Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Before the year was out, the company successfully lobbied for regulation in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Massachusetts, with major events scheduled for June 12 in Vancouver and Aug. The company has in particular set its focus on New York state and Ontario, two of the final holdouts, hopeful of running in Madison Square Garden as well as the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
The latter, which could hold 60, fans, would undoubtedly set the sport’s all-time attendance record in North America. Strikeforce ends the year as the most solid No.

The world of MMA is a very unpredictable place. Serra choosing that hill to die on resulted in the strangest finish on the card and one of our favorite result entries on Wikipedia.
