When you look at him you might think to yourself, ‘Pretty boy gym rat’. Visually, Hayder Hassan oozes cockiness and self confidence; which can be mistaken for the false bravado of the ‘Just let me bang, Bro!’ mentality seen on previous seasons of the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s television show The Ultimate Fighter. Looks are definitely misleading.
There are a lot of tweets, forum threads, and Facebook rants about the Ultimate Fighting Championship declining to showcase non corporate sponsors at this years fan expo; the previous stalls, which were plentiful, are no longer going to be allowed.

Daniel Straus is a mixed martial arts fighter for Bellator MMA in the Featherweight division. Straus was a Bellator Season Four Featherweight Tournament runner up and the winner of the Season Six Featherweight event.

Jonny ‘Bones’ Jones is in trouble again. Riding dirty again. Using his vehicle as a weapon again; but this time, it’s not a sturdy pole.

Due to a broken arm suffered by the victim in Saturday’s hit and run accident, Albuquerque police are issuing a warrant for Jon Jones. The charge will be Felony Leaving the Scene of an Accident.

A few weeks ago, word hit the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) scene that Metamoris would be signing people to exclusive contracts. This caused uproar and a lot of curiosity as to what this meant for the future of BJJ competition. Fan favorite Gary Tonon has publicly criticized and refused this deal and we’ve since been robbed of a Joe Lauzon vs. Garry Tonon match because of it.
Pretty much every super hero I can think of has some form of alter ego. Whether it’s who they were before they became a super hero or a disguise to hide their abilities. When the mask comes off, those that have superpowers and don’t have an alter ego become something else entirely: The Super Villain‘- www.superjjambrose.com Or a talented mixed martial arts fighter becomes a Journeyman in the real world.
