Mark Bocek Draws Mike De La Torre For TUF Nations Finale With Evan Dunham Hurt

Bocek-tweet

UFC acted fast after Evan Dunham was injured and bounced from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Nations" Finale on April 16, 2014 in Quebec City, Canada, calling on UFC newcomer Mike De La Torre (12-3) to step up and throw hands on short notice. Hopefully Sarah Kaufman can be as lucky, now that she's without an opponent (again). For the latest TUF: "Nations" fight card and rumors click here.

Overeem-head
Love him or loathe him, UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem has a great sense of humor, autographing a rubber horse head for "dinner," a nod to his 2009 admission that he eats "mostly horse meat" to pack on the muscle. While it helped him rule the roost in K-1 and Strikeforce, he was tamed inside the Octagon by Bigfoot Silva and Travis Browne. Might be time to switch animals, since a certain brawler was able to win gold by chewing on hogs and venison.

EA Sports UFC now has a complete and finalized cover for its upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) video game (high-res version here), featuring light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and division number one contender Alexander Gustafsson, who not only gave "Bones" the fits at UFC 165, but also beat out Georges St. Pierre for a spot on the cover. The Xbox ONE and PlayStation 4 game is expected to hit store shelves later this spring but until then, you can check out some EA Sports UFC previews here and here.

Bishop Gorman three-star safety Nicco Fertitta has officially committed to University of Notre Dame after receiving a football scholarship back in January. The undersized defensive back and son of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) head cheese Lorenzo Fertitta helped lead his high school gridiron gang to a state championship on the strength of a 13-2 season. Future NFL'er? Time will tell.

Holm-arm

Wondering why one of the best female boxers of all time was throwing so many kicks? Wonder no more. Holly Holm broke her arm during her technical knockout win over Juliana Werner (watch it) in the Legacy Fighting Championship (LFC) 30 headliner on Friday night (April 4, 2014) inside Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico (recap here). How long this injury sidelines "The Preacher's Daughter" remains to be seen, but we can probably go ahead and shelve those plans for a "Cyborg" fight. At least for the time being.

Click HERE or scroll to comments if GIF does not play. Somewhere in Croatia, Mirko "Cro Cop" is nodding in approval. Holly Holm improved to 7-0 last night (April 4, 2014) with her stunning, fifth-round head kick knockout over Juliana Werner at Legacy FC 30 in Albuquerque (full results and recap here). She's willing to fight Cris Cyborg and beating the imposing Brazilian would almost guarantee her a spot in UFC. Anyone disagree? Thanks to Zombue Prophet for the GIF (follow him here).

Yeah, that looks about right (high-res version here). But where is the middle finger? Probably requires a cheat code but hey, at least fans of the 209 will be able to get to fight as Nate Diaz, who can finally settle a couple of old scores (like this one) on the Xbox and PlayStation 4 later this spring.
