Afternoon MMA News Roundup: Got Your Injunction Right Here


(Tito Ortiz: Planning his next move?)

Too boring to get posts of their own — just boring enough to be lumped in with a few other stories!

UFC 81 drew 10,583 spectators at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on Saturday, with 7,167 of those asses-in-seats actually paying for their tickets. That’s the lowest paid-attendance figure for a Mandalay Bay UFC event since UFC 48, which featured Ken Shamrock vs. Kimo Leopoldo as the main event. “Breaking Point” took in a live gate of $2,437,890, which is the sixth-lowest total out of the venue’s past seven UFC events. This could all be explained by an inordinate amount of comp tickets being handed out for Brock Lesnar‘s Octagon debut, and the UFC could have easily gotten their money back on pay-per-view buys. But since the UFC isn’t required to release information on PPV revenue, we may not hear the full story for some time.

— Tito Ortiz may be planning a 10-year-anniversary re-match with Frank Shamrock outside of the UFC. The two fighters first met at UFC 22 back in September 1999, where they battled for the UFC’s 205-pound title. Shamrock won by submission due to strikes near the end of the fourth round, then retired from the UFC with a perfect 5-0 record in the organization.

Zuffa has filed a motion for preliminary injunction against Randy Couture, with a hearing date set for March 4th. The injunction will likely be focused on preventing Couture from making further breaches of the non-compete agreement in his employment contract.

— Though most Canadian provinces have given MMA their blessing, the sport is totes unkosher in Ontario.

— I just finished eating some thai food. It wasn’t bad.

Actually when Tito fought Frank it was a 200lb weight class, as it was still middleweight back then

White Pad Thai?? never heard of that. i'm going to check into that. i'm alwas up for a good fucking mind blow.

If you guys are ever in Vegas for UFC, go to The Thai Kitchen on Silverado Ranch and Maryland. Best place in town by far. Blows your fucking mind and Ass at the same time!

LOL at Tito, honestly, why not set up a 2 or 3 or 4 year anniversary fights with Ken Shamrock for each time they fought while they're at it.

Tito is a real warrior it looks like

Red Curry is my fav too! I would also recomend the Tom Yum Gai soup to start and the Kra Prow, aka Spicy Chili Mints beef or Chicken.

Yellow curry has potatoes so you may like that better.

The Thai food "wasn't bad"?!?! My friend, you are eating at the wrong Thai restaurant, either that or ordering the wrong thing! The Thai restaurant here is my favorite place, I recommend the extra spicy red curry with beef or chicken (or both). You can thank me later.

Team Punishment's talent pool is so deep.
