If you’re tuning in to watch “UFC 109: Relentless” tonight, you’re likely to catch a few great Mixed Martial Arts fights, one including Sacramento-based fighter Justin Buchholz. Buchholz, who is originally from Alaska, joined Urijah Faber’s Team Alpha Male recently and has been training vigorously to turnaround his career in the UFC Octagon. He’ll have to do so against veteran Mac Danzig, with both hungry for a win to establish their success in the fight game’s highest ranks.
Sacramento Kings fans have another event to look forward to during NBA All-Star Weekend. The NBA announced that Kings rookie Tyreke Evans will join former Sacramento King Chris Webber and former Sacramento Monarch Nicole Powell for the 2010 Haier Shooting Stars competition Feb. 13.
Somehow, it really didn’t seem official until now. While the demise of the Sacramento Monarchs is months old, and a WNBA Dispersal Draft has taken care of distributing any remaining Monarchs under contract to other teams still alive in the league, the Monarchs didn’t truly seem gone until yesterday, when it was announced that the heart and soul of the team signed with someone else.
Mixed Martial Artist Urijah Faber is a popular man in his hometown of Sacramento. Didn’t believe it before, despite his near sellouts of ARCO Arena every time he fights? Well here’s more proof.
