Hi and welcome back to another edition of the MMA Weekly Wrap-UP where we bring you all the best Internet news, information, and video clips from the world of Combat Sports.


The 7th season of the Ultimate Fighter; Team Rampage vs. Team Forrest returns to Spike TV on April 2nd at 10:00pm (ET). If the following trailer is any indication, this season appears to be more exciting than those of the past.

Rather than have the fighters compete in some lame, fitness competition or focus only on training for the first show, these competitors will have to fight for their place on the show.

And, while we're on the subject, TUF is already looking for fighters from the Lightweight and Light Heavyweight Divisions for Season 8. If you think your ready to make the move to Vegas and remain locked in a house with a bunch of other MMA meatheads then this is your dream come true!

Just head over to the website and fill out the Application. But you better hurry... the deadline is APRIL 5th!

You will have to provide videos of your fights, but luckily you won't have to turn in anything like this...

Shamrock/Le Fight Just Days Away

With the Frank Shamrock vs. Cung Le fight to take place this Saturday for the Strikeforce World Middleweight Championship all eyes are on these two fighters this week. The fight will be televised on Showtime at 9:00pm (ET).

The message boards are filled with comments cheering one fighter or the other. Will Cung Le's incredible kicks and athletic ability be a match for the sheer ferocity of Frank Shamrock's attack?

One thing is certain, Frank certainly appears confident...

GSP vs. Serra Also Just Around the Corner
The Georges St-Pierre and Matt Serra fight is set to take place on April 19th, at UFC 83 in GSP's hometown of Montreal. Combat Sport fans are greatly divided on calling this match (Unless, of course, you happen to live in Canada - Then you have to root for St-Pierre, or be beaten by Mounties.)

As for myself, I really, really like St-Pierre. He's an incredible fighter and a truly a class act.

Still, my vote goes for Serra (even if he is a New Yorker). I hope two things happen in their match...

First, I hope it goes to the ground. Both of these guys are amazing grapplers and I'd like to see who has the best ju jitsu skills.

Second, if Serra wins (if), then I hope the MMA community finally gives him the respect he deserves. This should be a fantastic fight.

In the following clip, both fighters discuss their first fight back on April 7th of 2007.

Well, that will do it for this week's Weekly Wrap-Up. Check back again for more of 'The Best of the Web' in the world of Combat Sports.

You missed the free WEC event on VS! Turned out to be a great card with some good fights. Hope you got to watch.
