Mark Ellis wins his MMA debut

From the TREMENDOUS SBN site Bloody Elbow, Mark Ellis wins his 1st professional MMA fight with a second round submission. The review of the fight is a little down the page, but it sounds as if Ellis was all about getting the fight to the ground and trying to submit his opponent. For those who are curious, Ellis is the 4th former Mizzou wrestler who have moved professionally to MMA, and the combined records of the four (Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, Mike Chandler and Mark Ellis) now stands at 26-0. Michael Chandler will be the next to fight on October 25th when he looks to join Ben Askren as a Bellator Champion when he takes on the extremely talented Eddie Alvarez (22-2)

Seedings Released for Midlands Wrestling Tournament

I will likely have some more on this over the next two days, but the top 8 seeds were released at the VERY prestigious (read: loaded) Midlands Wrestling Tournament, which will kick off tomorrow at Northwestern. Nice to see Brent Haynes earn a 6 seed at 197 and it will be interesting to see what Marable (4 seed) can do at 165 and what the HWY's can do (Bradley is a 3 and Ellis is a 6)

Dom Bradley wins GOLD at the Wrestling Junior World Championships

It certainly reads as if he was pretty dominant in the finals. This winds down a pretty impressive summer season (as outlined in the article). Will be very interesting to see how the heavyweight picture comes into focus as we get closer to the winter.

Raymond Jordan and Ben Askren to coach at Arizona State

They join Shawn Charles, formally of the Mizzou coaching staff and now head man at Arizona State. Best of luck to all three in helping to further rebuild a once proud and dominant program.

Great Article on Former Mizzou Wrestler Tyron Woodley

Woodley is 2-0 and fighting this weekend in St. Louis at a pretty big MMA show (Strikeforce will be on Showtime, but Woodley is down the undercard and VERY unlikely to have his match shown). This is a great piece about all he has overcome in his life.

Dorian Henderson Earns Wildcard NCAA Wrestling Berth

As I was hoping, and good for him. Mizzou will send eight down I-70 in a week and a half for the Championships.

Mizzou AA Wrestler Greg Warren on Comedy Central

Had certainly heard of this comedian....had NOT heard he was an All-American

Mark Ellis...#1 ranked HWY

Intermat has its new rankings out, and junior Mark Ellis now resides on top of the HWY division. The team almost moved up smartly (to #6) following their road win over #2 Cornell

NCAA Releases Wrestling Rankings

This should probably answer my question if the NCAA would allow two wrestlers from the same weight into the tournament, as Dom Bradley is very much NOT ranked. Nice to see Henderson at 20th..not sure if that even includes his win from yesterday
