Half the man he used to be; WSOF’s Waylon Lowe sues Philadelphia sex shop after penis gel permanently disfigures genitals
****WARNING: GRAPHIC MATERIAL, NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART****
Several months ago USCS reported on an incident that occurred in Thailand causing severe trauma to genital region of mixed martial artist, Ray Elbe.
In that “sexual encounter,” Elbe fractured his penis while engaging in intercourse with his girlfriend. If you care to be grossed out twice today click here to read how that bloody encounter went down.
Today however we deliver another low blow to our male readers in reporting that World Series of Fighting and former UFC fighter, Waylon Lowe, has also sustained a very serious injury to his nether region.
With her clout in Judo building and with her skills almost undeniable, Ronda had suffered a devastating knee injury at the age of 16 which kept her out of Nationals that year. Devastated, doctors told her that Judo might be a thing of the past for Rousey. They came to this conclusion when she demonstrated certain moves that called for a lot of pressure and strain being placed on her bad knee.
Challenge made, challenge accepted. The stage has been set. The XFC’s past meets the present, to determine their future. On June 14th, Live from the USF Sundome in Tampa Florida, Scott “Hotsauce” Holtzman will take on John “The Mulatto Mauler” Mahlow for XFC Lightweight gold.
Since hanging up his hockey skates in 2008, University of Tennessee and Knoxville Ice Bears Forward Scott Holtzman (4-0) has only had one thing on his mind, a mixed martial arts title. After an undefeated amateur career, that never saw a 3rd round, and four impressive professional wins, Holtzman finds himself one step closer to reaching his goal, when he faces off against John Mahlow at XFC 24: Collision Course. The often quiet Holtzman recently found himself at the center of media attention, after former XFC Lightweight Champion Nick Newell refused to defend his belt based on the merit that Scott was "an up and comer." Media headlines soared as Newell was abruptly stripped of his title, leaving “Hotsauce” without an opponent for his June 14th title fight. While fielding hundreds of questions, the XFC’s #1 contender made one thing clear, his goal was never to beat Nick Newell, his goal was to become a champion, and Nick Newell just happen to be the man holding his belt. “The man across from me in the cage has changed, but the plan is still the same…get my belt.” Will Scott Holtzman continue his unbeaten rise to the top or will John Mahlow close the curtain on the “Hotsauce” show?
XFC 24 to showcase Lightweights Kevin Forant and Eric Reynolds
In 2001, Florida became home to professional sports greatest nickname, when Lakeland's own Rod "He Hate Me" Smart captivated football audiences in the XFL. On June 14th, Smart will have to concede that title, when Xtreme Fighting Championships presents a showdown between two of the sports best lightweights, Kevin "The Master of Cool" Forant and Eric "It’s a Wrap” Reynolds, Live on AXS TV, from the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida.
Dave Courchaine signs long term deal with XFC; Faces Luis Santos at XFC 24
Xtreme Fighting Championships is excited to announce the signing of rising star “Insane” Dave Courchaine (15-5), to its already stacked Welterweight Division. Courchaine hails from Cheney, Washington and trains out of Spokane’s School of Boxing and MMA. The “Insane” one is currently riding an 8 fight win streak, with only 3 of those bouts making it out of the 1st round. Courchaine was a decorated high school wrestler, earning Washington’s High School Wrestler of the Decade Award. He also owns a perfect 10-0 boxing record.
They say, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. But in the world of mixed martial arts, hell hath no fury like a woman fighting on national television! On June 14, 2013, Live from the USF Sun Dome in beautiful Tampa, Florida, Xtreme Fighting Championships keeps its promise and tradition of showcasing Women’s MMA, by adding a Flyweight showdown between Cortney Casey and Kelly Warren.
Cortney “Cast Iron” Casey (0-0) is wasting no time making a name for herself as a professional fighter. The former professional soccer player’s decision to jump right into the fire and face WMMA veteran Kelly Warren has almost everyone scratching their heads. However, if you ask anyone that knows Casey, this is just typical Cortney. Kerry Hartney, matchmaker for the Las Vegas amateur super show, Tuff Nuff, had this to say about the debuting Casey: “Cortney Casey doesn’t want easy fights. She doesn’t get motivated unless there is a tough challenge in front of her. The girl never backs down from a challenge, so it doesn’t surprise me one bit that she is fighting Kelly Warren in her debut. Mark my words, soon everyone will know Cortney Casey’s name.” Casey closed out her amateur career with three dynamic performances for the famed Vegas promotion, which included a title win and defense of their Flyweight Championship. Her most spectacular win as an amateur came in her last bout, when she submitted Rachael Cummings with a highlight reel flying armbar in November of 2012. On June 14th, the question will be answered, will “Cast Iron” Casey turn up the heat on Kelly Warren and start her journey to XFC gold with a huge win, or will Warren leave her second guessing her opponent choice?
Good things come to those who wait! For over a week, XFC Lightweight contender Scott Holtzman has waited patiently to find out what his future holds, after former champion Nick Newell refused to defend his title at XFC 24, on June 14th. The wait is finally over. In an ironic twist, Scott Holtzman’s future will come face to face with the XFC’s past. Xtreme Fighting Championships is excited, and proud, to announce that a new Collision Course has been set.

If you do not know the name ‘Ronda Rousey’ by now and you claim to be fan of mixed martial arts, then please for the sake of everything good about this earth, Google her ASAP! Her track record is quite impressive: Olympic Bronze Medalist, Strikeforce Women’s Champion, UFC Women’s Champion, first female fight in UFC history, etc. But in order for her to get where she is now, it all had to start somewhere. Good thing her mom, Ann Maria, just so happened to be one of the most lethal Judokas in the states (I include more detail about this in my previous post at Science of Skill).
