Today is weigh-in day in beautiful Hawaii. The Photo Gallery is up and don’t forget to use the “play” button on the new gallery to watch each picture. The K-1/ROTR Press Conference was held as BJ Penn and Renzo Gracie had a very interesting stare down where neither fighter shook hands.
Both fighters seemed pretty intense but later spoke highly of one another at the press conference. While the respect is there, the intensity was also very evident. Watch the K1/ROTR Press Conference later on this morning, exclusively at MMAWeekly.com.
MMAWeekly was the only american website to follow the action and you can see not only Penn vs Gracie, but you can watch what Gary Goodridge had to say about facing Cabbage. Also see the two big boys square off between Akebono 6’8/484 vs Hong Man Choi 7’2/353. Also a very jubliant Butterbean squaring off against the man the Japanese media call “The twin brother of Bob Sapp” Marcus Royster.
It’s all up on MMAWeekly TV right now. They have changed the card a bit as they have now added Brazilian Alan Goes to the fight card, plus three other MMA fights. Here is the new card from MMAWeekly.com
