News is that the UFC has banned Clinch Gear (Dan Henderson's MMA Clothing line) after UFC 105. There was a good amount of Clinch Gear shown throughout the CBS Strikeforce broadcast, but most likely this is the byproduct of failed negotiations between Dan Henderson and the UFC. There is also a strong rumor that the UFC has banned RVCA after they sponsored Fedor and appeared on the CBS Strikeforce card as well, though the brand has close ties with BJ Penn, so it would definitely be an interesting scenario if the rumor is true. Update: a well-placed source within the mma apparel industry indicates that they have heard the same as well, regarding RVCA. Will keep you guys updated. HT: Josh Gross for Clinch Gear Story

PRO MMA League Created By Roy Englebrecht in Southern California Major League Baseball has the minor leagues; the NBA has the D-League; the NHL has the AHL; and the NFL has college football. All the major sports leagues have "feeder systems" and now Southern California fight promoter and sports entrepreneur Roy Englebecht has decided that mixed martial arts also needs its own legitimate minor league system. In an effort to help develop the next generation of MMA stars while providing investors a chance to own their own professional sports franchise, Englebrecht announced Wednesday the launch of the Professional Mixed Martial Arts League (PMMAL). Set to begin play in early 2010, the PMMAL (www.pmmal.com) will award charter ownerships to teams in eight specific areas including six Southern California counties and Las Vegas.

Strikeforce Interested In Tara LaRosa: We asked Mauro Ranallo, expert commentator for the upcoming CBS/Strikeforce card who he would like to see in the cage, and one name came to mind. "To be honest with you, I’m hoping the likes of Tara LaRosa definitely will be coming on board," Ranallo stated. "I talked to (matchmaker Rich Cho) at length, I think that will definitely be the case. For me, Tara LaRosa right now maybe the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet. I would love to have her on board with Strikeforce."

CBS Happy With Advertisement Sales For Nov. 7th CBS Strikeforce Show. The Reason? Fedor. "I think (Fedor) made it a lot easier for our sales guys and our sales are going very, very well for this fight," said Kahl. "To be able walk in with a presentation and show Fedor shows a credibility and it speaks volumes to have a world-class fighter and maybe the best in the world. I think it certainly made it an easier sell than maybe we’ve had in the past." Kahl said movies studios, automobile purveyors, and video game companies are among those that have bought commercial slots. "EA Sports is unveiling a preview of their MMA game in this fight exclusively," said Kahl. "In terms of getting mainstream sports reporters interested, Fedor gives us the credibility that maybe we didn’t have before.
