UFC-bound Yoshihiro Akiyama is ready to face a middleweight Wanderlei Silva
(mmamania.com)
I decided to fight in the UFC which was a “major league” in MMA … I will debut in July or August and my contract is six fights. When offered, I thought Dana White was interested in me because he planed to expand his business in Japan and Korea. Aside from his real intention, I am glad if I can attract more Japanese and Korean to MMA. That would be great if I can fight in Japan and Korea as a UFC fighter … I want to fight a champion someday. I dream about challenging (Yushin) Okami when he becomes a champion. If Wanderlei Silva [does come] down to middleweight, I want to fight him.

Alberto Crane Rolling, Wants Back In The UFC
(mmaweekly.com)
Lightweight Alberto Crane will be the first to tell you that his initial Ultimate Fighting Championship run was a disappointment on many levels. After a stellar start to his career, which saw him win his first eight fights en route to the King of the Cage 155-pound title, Crane lost back-to-back fights in the UFC to Roger Huerta and Kurt Pellegrino. Just as quickly as he had arrived, six months after his UFC debut, he was released from the company.

The heavyweight division in the UFC may crown the next top contender on Saturday night as Brazilian Gabriel Gonzaga tries to take one more step towards his championship dreams as he faces undefeated prospect, Shane Carwin, in Columbus, OH at UFC 96.

The Miller Brothers Lead By Example
(mmaweekly.com)
When brothers Dan and Jim Miller signed on with the UFC, many fans were not familiar with the New Jersey tandem, but it didn't take long for just about everybody to take notice of what they were doing right. Dan Miller is now a perfect 3-0 in the Octagon with his last win coming against former NCAA champion wrestler Jake Rosholt in early February. His brother, Jim Miller, currently sits at 2-0, and is looking for a third win next weekend when he faces Gray Maynard at UFC 96.

Dan Miller vs Yushin Okami completes UFC 98
(mmamania.com)
Believe it or not, but UFC 98: “Lesnar vs. Mir 2? just got better. Former number one middleweight contender Yushin Okami will return to the Octagon to challenge surging 185-pound stand out Dan Miller at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 23. Okami bested Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist Dean Lister at UFC 92: “The Ultimate 2008? in Dec. 2008, re-establishing himself as a top contender in the middleweight division. “Thunder” was the front runner to challenge 185-pound stalwart Anderson Silva for his division title before the Lister match; however, he was sidelined with a hand injury that temporarily derailed his championship aspirations.

10 March Tussles Worth Watching
(sherdog.com)
Despite a lack of star power, February was a solid month for mixed martial arts. The Nate Marquardt-Wilson Gouveia and Nick Thompson-Paul Daley fights -- Sherdog.com’s top-ranked bouts for the month -- delivered the goods as far as all-out action between evenly matched opponents was concerned. The signs for March are similar. Most of the sport’s top pound-for-pound talent will not return until summer, so guys like Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Aleksander Emelianenko will get their chance to shine. With tough opponents like Keith Jardine and Ibragim Magomedov in their way, fans are guaranteed competitive matchups.

Top Rung Off Limits, Jardine Climbing Ladder
(mmaweekly.com)
Whether Keith Jardine is first, second, or third in the light heavyweight hierarchy, the important thing is that he’s there in the first place. “I’m probably like the third person asked to the prom on this one, I think,” he said of his UFC 96 fight with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson during a media teleconference. “But I got a call and couldn’t turn it down.” The announcement that he’d face the former UFC light heavyweight champion was dropped on fans during the telecast for UFC 93, scrapping earlier reports he would face Brazilian prospect Luis Cane at UFC 97.
