On tonight’s “Inside MMA,” Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champ Mo Lawal makes a play on his opponent’s nickname “Feijao” by saying he’ll, “make refried beans” of Cavalcante in their upcoming match at Strikeforce Houston on August 21, 2010.
Also on the program, MMA pioneer “Judo” Gene LeBell tells the panel why he turned down a part in the mixed martial arts classic “Enter The Dragon.” LeBell, who has worked in over 1000 TV and film productions – and whom also fought in the first sanctioned MMA fight in 1963 – tells Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten that he turned down the movie because he wouldn’t make enough in residuals!
Rounding out the panel, Strikeforce Champion Sarah Kaufman – who may have scored the biggest hit in MMA last week with her knockout slam on Roxanne Modafferi – guarantees she’ll be on the main card for the next Strikeforce event.
Finally, in the news, Big John McCarthy confirms to Ron Kruck that he will return to referee in the UFC on August 1st …for the first time since 2007.
