ROY NELSON RUMORS & GOSSIP
In 2002, a mediocre movie titled “The Scorpion King” was released featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson starring in a prequel to “The Mummy” film. Twelve years later, the franchise is somehow still kicking, with it’s fourth iteration set to be released in January.
So how is this related in any way to mixed martial arts? Well, the franchise decided to continue utilizing...
Before Brad Pitt was knocking out Edward Norton in 'Fight Club' or rolling around in tanks in his new movie 'Fury', he was cheesing it up on soap operas like 'Another World' and 'Dallas'. Matthew McConaughey once starred in really, really awful sequel to 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'.
The moral of this story?
You've got to crawl before...

The two 37-year-old fighters would look to put themselves back into the title talks after an unimpressive 2013 campaign, respectively.
