    Mma Rock MMA

    Long time mma fan, and former wwe superstar " The Rock" Dwayne Johnson has been thinking about doing mma for years, but he thinks he is old for it now. So Dwayne has decided to form his own mma league. That mma league is Rock MMA. He has signed a deal with ESPN for broadcast coverage in the USA, and SkySports for coverage in the UK.
    In order to differ from typical mma promotions. Kicks, stomps, and knees to a grounded opponent are allowed, as well as the elbow point. The attire is the same as UFC. The cage is a typical Octagon, but the time and rounds for matches are different. A non title match is 3, 5 minute rounds. A non title main event match is 5, 5 minute rounds. A title match is 3,10 minute rounds. The Rock has made a promise that no country will host back to back ppvs. This is to give mma a world wide exposure, and make it more popular.
    " I want mma to be bigger than wrestling, baseball, football, Basketball and Hockey I don't want to pass the UFC, i want to pass them and piss all over them. I want it to be as big as soccer is internationally. That means, we can broadcast from over 200 nations, and get fighters from smaller countries like Madagascar. MMA is the best sport in the world, it just needs more exposure." The Rock is quoted saying

    To differ from other promotions, we don't have the typical 5 weight classes. They are 3 weight Classes.

    Lightweight: Lower than 185
    Middleweight: 185- 225
    Heavyweight: 225 or higher

    This is some of the backroom staff.

    Commentators: Paul Heyman, Shaquille O'Neal
    Octagon announcer: Howard Finkel
    Referees: Big John McCarthy, Steve Mazzagatti, Tim Mills, Jimmy Peters, Harry Flynn
    Post match interviewer : Stevie Shipp

    Kicks, stomps to the opponent, and knees to the head of a grounded opponent are not allowed in the UFC. But they are in my MMA league.

    Re: Rock MMA

    News: Overeem calls out Fedor

    Earlier on Today, Alistair Overeem publicly called out Fedor Emilianeko, and challenged him to a fight at RMMA 1. Alistair said that Fedor has ducked him for years, and that he feels they need to settle it. He also said that Fedor has not fought anyone good for 5 years.

    We expect an answer to be made later on today as Fedor is attending a press conference on his decision to sign for RMMA.

    News: Fedor answers the challenge

    As expected, a man mentioned Overeem's challenge to Fedor. He asked if he accepts it.

    Fedor answered:
    " That depends if Rock lets it happen"

    Rock came out at the end of the press conference, and officially announced the card for RMMA 1.

    Re: Rock MMA

    Royce Gracie has pulled out of his fight with Pedro Rizzo with a rib injury. He will be replaced by Dan Lauzon, but even more alarming is that Rafael Dos Anjos, has backed out of the fight after hearing this news. He said that he wants to fight Gracie, before anyone else. So the Co Main Event will be Dan Lauzon vs Roger Huerta
