Not -- Reza Madadi: The UFC fighter was convicted of aggravated theft in Sweden. He will spend 18 months in jail for his part in a break-in of a Bottega Venetta store. He has two months to appeal the verdict.
Hot -- Fox Sports 1: Just days before it starts up, Fox hopes their all-sports channel will challenge ESPN. The UFC will air an entire card on it during the first day.
Not -- Jason "Mayhem" Miller: He's fought in Strikeforce and the UFC, but his life has taken a weird, worrisome turn as of late. Miller was arrested on domestic violence charges in California this week. Then, he posted a bizarre apology on his website and added some equally odd pictures to his Instagram account.
Hot -- Bellator's improving pay-per-view: The match-up of Quinton"Rampage" Jackson and Tito Ortiz excited very few fans about Bellator's first pay-per-view. However, the additions of Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler II and Mo Lawal vs. Emanuel Newton II make it a much more interesting card.
Still taking temperature -- Mauricio "Shogun" Rua: After a loss to Alexander Gustafsson, the one-time UFC light heavyweight champ could use a big win. He is getting a chance to make a mark against Chael Sonnen at UFC Fight Night 26 on Fox Sports 1 Saturday.
