    @Adrian: I'll recommend this for now.

    Also, look up "Diaz vs. Gomi".

    Good point. I'm a WWE Featured Columnist here on BR and I also write for another website that just featured MMA and wrestling. I've always been intrigued with MMA but never saw myself as a fan. I know MMA has grown (massively) in popularity since the Ken Shamrock days, so I wanted to ask you if there are any classic MMA fights that you can remember that I should watch. Something on Youtube or Dailymotion or something like that.

    @Adrian: They probably just wanted to drum up some news.

    Really great Kawa (whoever that is) vs. Heyman article. I see you are more of an MMA fan, but you were as unbiased as possible. The fact that Kawa started a random fight with Heyman, who is a manager/agent in an entirely different sport has be baffled. Any idea why he would call out Heyman out of nowhere?

    @Seb Cy:

    There's not much I can do re: the front page programmers.

    I'll try what I can, though.

    Please do me and all non-american ppl a favor and stop putting the TUF spoilers right on the title, why not just write ''Episode 5 recap''??? I only get to see TUF 2 days later and during those 2 days I go on B/R to read MMA news.
