Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Alexis Dufresne vs Marion Reneau added to Jan. 3 UFC show
The UFC announced today that Alexis Dufresne vs Marion Reneau has been added to UFC 182 Jan. 3 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This fight will air on the UFC Fight Pass prelims. Alexis trains at Team Quest in Temecula, CA. Her record is 5-1. She lost her UFC debut to Sarah Moras on July 6. For starters, she missed weight and the fight was at 143lb catchweight. And then she tried a lay and pray strategy that backfired. So it was a poor performance and Alexis will be looking to bounce back. Marion trains at Elite Team in Visalia, CA which is the home for Bellator fighter Doug Marshall. Her record is 4-1 and her last fight was a win over Maureen Riordon on the July 25 RFA show. She was under contract to Invicta and was supposed to fight Mexican Irene Aldana a couple of weeks ago. But Irene got sick and the fight was scrapped. Invicta contracts aren't exclusive and they wouldn't stop anyone from going to the UFC anyway. That means Invicta contracts aren't worth the paper they are printed on. And that's fine. They are supposed to be a feeder league anyway. Marion's recent fights are not on Youtube so I can't evaluate her. And she hasn't fought a high level of competition anyway. That's why this is on Fight Pass.
