Around the MMA World

Posted: March 27, 2013 in Marketing, PR, Social Media, UFC

A lot has happened since my last MMA blog post.

  • Ronda Rousey lived up to her hype and successfully defended against a game opponent in Liz Carmouche.  This is great for all parties.  For “Rowdy” Ronda she can now go on as the first reigning, defending women’s MMA champion under the UFC banner. She has even notched herself a coaching spot on the next Ultimate Fighter.
  • Wanderlei Silva defied age again and took home a win against the bigger, younger Brian Stann in Japan.
  • Rashad Evans has taken to the media with his stance on gay marriage.  I would normally commend a fighter for taking a stance outside the cage on a hot button issue. But its Rashad and I think he is just trying to stay relevant and in the spot light.
  • GSP has accepted the role as “Batroc The Leaper” in the upcoming film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  I think this role will really help St Pierre step out of his shell in playing a different role from his day to day. I am just not sure how he’ll relate to a French Savate fighter.

Now, what’s coming next?

We have four cards coming up in April – which will steal the attention of the world: Goustafsson-Mousasi (FUEL), Faber-Jorgensen (FUEL), Henderson-Melendez (FOX) or Jones-Sonnen (PPV)? Just kidding, we know it is going to be Henderson-Melendez.
