Bellator Announces Bellator: Dynamite 2 on June 24th

While there might have been a few hitches at last year's Bellator MMA: Dynamite 1 card, Bellator looks to have their ducks in a row this year and have announced Bellator: Dynamite 2. Dynamite 2 will take place on June 24th at the ScotTrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri and once again be a hybrid card between MMA and kickboxing. The only real difference is that this time they get their way and will have complete control over the show, with Bellator Kickboxing launching in just under two weeks now. 

The only fight announced for the card thus far is Quinton "Rampage" Jackson taking on Japanese judoka Satoshi Ishii in an MMA bout. Here's hoping to some big name kickboxing fights at Dynamite 2.

The Life of Zack Mwekassa Continues to Be Insanity

If there would be one thing that you could say about the life of GLORY Light Heavyweight Zack Mwekassa it is that it has been a storied one. Another chapter in that storied life apparently almost kept him from hopping on a plane this week to head towards Copenhagen for GLORY 29. So what exactly happened? It involved a gun, a misfire, a failed carjacking and a stolen passport. 

According to our friend over at BloodyElbow, John Joe O'Regan this happened about a week ago and saw carjackers surround Mwekassa on his way home from the gym, pulling a gun on him and attempting to take his BMW and everything else on him. Here's what Mwekassa had to say about it:

"So they stopped me, they came to the car, opened the door and put a gun my head. They searched my car and me; they took my money. Then the guy with the gun tried to shoot me. The gun clicked, nothing happened. He started to mess with it and the magazine dropped out. That's the second time [criminals] have tried to kill me in South Africa.

"So then they went away. After they left I looked to see what they had taken; I realized they had also taken my passport. It was a really sad moment for me because my passport is from Congo not South Africa and Congo isn't delivering passports at the moment. I thought I would have to cancel the fight. And because it would take some months to get a new passport, probably I would miss more than one fight."

Crazily enough, after offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the passport it was returned to him and everything worked out, but damn, has this guy seen it all, huh? Check out the entirety of the story over at BloodyElbow.
