-- As noted yesterday, Facebook is slowly phasing out groups and forcing people to create pages instead. Due to this, we will be closing our Facebook Group in a few weeks.

-- UFC 131 takes place tonight. The event was originally scheduled to be headlined by former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar facing Junior dos Santos, however Lesnar had to withdraw after a recurrence of diverticulitis. Lesnar will be replaced by the man who almost defeated him for the title last summer, Shane Carwin. Make sure to check FightLine.com this afternoon for live coverage of the event by clicking here.
-- Speaking of Lesnar, we will be giving away 5 copies of Brock Lesnar's new book, DEATH CLUTCH, the no-holds-barred memoir from the former UFC Heavyweight Champion. All you have to do is "Like" our Facebook page and reply to this thread on our new Discussion Board. Please note that this contest is only open to U.S. residents.
Lesnar has previously shunned the media, so this is the first time his story-straight from his mouth-is being heard. DEATH CLUTCH tells of his life in and out of the octagon, from his rise to fame as a wrestler to the WWE and his shocking decision to leave wrestling and take on the world of MMA with the UFC. He also discusses the disease that almost killed him, and how it changed him as a fighter and as a man. It's not just the story of a phenomenal athlete, but of a guy who worked his way to the top and didn't give up.
