Who had a good week and who didn't in the world of MMA?
Hot -- Ronda Rousey: The UFC bantamweight champion has endless opportunities coming her way. She just finished filming for "The Ultimate Fighter," is starting filming for "Expendables 3," training for her UFC 168 bout with Miesha Tate and is expected to be in "The Fast and the Furious 7."
Not -- The two guys who fought for the UFC featherweight belt at UFC 163: Oh man, Jose Aldo and Chan Sung Jung have suffered since their bout last weekend. Aldo had a broken foot and kidney stones. Jung had a separated shoulder, a broken orbital and a broken foot.
Hot -- Chael Sonnen: When Sonnen applied for a license to fight at next weekend's UFC on Fox 1 debut card, he faced resistance from the unions that have been fighting the UFC's legalization in New York. The Massachusetts governing body did decided to license Sonnen, and UFC president Dana White sent out this tweet:
Chael vs Shogun LIVE and FREE on FOX Sports 1 August 17th! EAT IT Las Vegas Culinary Union
— Dana White (@danawhite) August 8, 2013
Was eat it a clever pun on the Culinary Union's main purpose? It doesn't matter. The UFC's card in Boston is good to go.
Not -- Bob Sapp: The Beast lost his twelfth fight in a row. 12 fights! He was once a star in Pride, but now he's a running joke. He continues to fight because he can continue make money fighting, so it's the promotions who keep paying him who are the biggest jokes.
Still taking temperature -- Tyrone Spong: Kickboxing great Spong will fight in his second MMA bout. He's taking on Angel DeAnda in a World Series of Fighting bout on Saturday night on NBC Sports Network. Will he continue to make a successful transition? Tune in and find out.
