UFC president Dana White says his anger targeted at Showtime,not Strikeforce
PORTLAND, Ore. – When UFC president Dana White took aim at a budding rival earlier this month by calling them "Strike-farce," it appeared the UFC exec's long-standing praise of Strikeforce was coming to an end. But at today's UFC 102 pre-fight press conference, White clarified who the real enemy was in the battle for MMA supremacy. "I'm not anti-Strikeforce," White said. "I don't dislike those guys. I dislike Showtime. That's who I dislike."

While merge with WEC uncertain, White says lighter classes coming to UFC "probably real soon"
PORTLAND, Ore. – While the idea of a merge between the UFC and WEC has been tossed around for quite some time, this past week's rescheduling of "WEC 43: Cerrone vs. Henderson" brought the topic back to the discussion table. At today's UFC 102 pre-fight press conference, White said he didn't have any immediate plans to merge Zuffa's two fight organizations together – but that doesn't mean fans shouldn't expect to see some of the WEC's biggest stars making their way into the UFC, especially with the volume of cards the UFC is planning for 2010. "(The chances of us bringing lighter weight classes to the UFC are) very good, and probably real soon," White said. "We're doing like three fights a month next year."

Brett Rogers: When I Beat Fedor, I'll Become the God of MMA
What Brett Rogers lacks in MMA experience, he certainly makes up for in confidence. The 10-0 heavyweight, who recently agreed to fight Fedor Emelianenko later this fall, has never been shy about telling the world how good he is. When he meets one of the best fighters in the world on Showtime, he will have the opportunity to show them. FanHouse spoke to Rogers on Thursday about this opportunity of a lifetime and how he plans on defeating Emelianenko. The full interview is below. Ariel Helwani: When we spoke two weeks ago in San Jose, you said you wanted to get paid what you thought you deserved if you fought Fedor Emelianenko. So now that the fight has been booked, are you happy with your purse? Brett Rogers: I could be a little happier; I always can be a little happier, right? I mean, but it's good. I can't complain.

In the short career of a fighter every fight is important, title fights even more so, but for former UFC and Pride fighter Travis “Diesel” Wiuff his recent IFC heavyweight title win on Aug. 15 in Canada had significance for a whole other reason. As Wiuff explained to MMAWeekly.com, having the chance to honor a fallen friend by following in his championship footsteps made the fight all that more important.

Used to fighting for UFC life, UFC 102's Ed Herman now fighting for family
Among fighters, some superstitions are nearly universal. Never overlook a current opponent to talk about the next one. There is no such thing as a guaranteed victory. Three losses in a row can kill your career. Ed Herman knows the latter all too well. "Short Fuse" has been on the brink twice in his UFC career. Herman now faces undefeated Aaron Simpson at UFC 102 on Saturday in Portland, Ore.

Demian Maia: Anderson Was Talking Some Bulls**t
. Cliffnotes. - Maia is going to have no problem with the weight cut. - Maia is more worried about Marquardt's technique than his strength. He says Marquardt is a worthy opponent on the ground. - Winner should get a title shot by the end of 2009. - Anderson Silva was "talking some bullshit" in Brazil about Maia because he felt Maia challenged him when Maia asked for a title shot after his last victory. - Anderson Silva didn't used to be that way, but he is now cocky and Maia felt that he has changed. Anderson does not accept critics anymore.

At least according to Randy Couture. When asked Wednesday about the winner of his Saturday fight with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira possibly being next in line for the Brock Lesnar-Shane Carwin winner, Couture said "That's been tossed around". Couture still hasn't ruled out moving back to 205, where one interesting possible fight is Anderson Silva.

Muhsin Corbbrey: “The Grind” Is a Gift
Mushin's quote and the reason I posted this article: “I want to win a major Muay Thai title in Thailand at a stadium, I want to get a WEC belt and I want to have a boxing title,” the three-sport pro said flatly, without a hint of braggadocio. “I think it’s definitely feasible for me. I have the skills and ability to do it, I just have to do it.”

Donald Cerrone Talks Jamie Varner, The TapouT House, More
On The TapouT House: "We have the TapouT house going right now. The house we're in is five bedrooms, so there's plenty of room. But the house that I'm buying has an actual casita on it, which is two bedrooms with a giant living area, kitchen, washroom, laundry, everything for the guys to come out. So it's actually their own private house." On His Goals With The TapouT House: "We're hoping they can come down and see what it's like to train with a world-class team, see what it's like to train alongside with me while I'm training for a title fight. Leonard is fighting in the WEC as well, so see what it's like to live and train in the everyday life of what we do – maybe open their eyes to say, 'This is what I'm doing wrong,' or 'This is what I need to do right,' or 'They're doing everything wrong, and I do it better on my own.' (We're) just trying to get people to come down, and hopefully Greg will be like, 'Yeah, I like this guy. Why don't you stick around and join the team?'"

Gabriel Gonzaga looking to add a little excitement to his game
Gabriel Gonzaga’s most famous UFC moment came when his stunning high kick knocked out Mirko "Crocop" Filipovic in the first round of their bout at UFC 70. While a lot has changed for the 30-year-old Brazilian since that April night in 2007 in Manchester, England, Gonzaga believes he’s got plenty of big moments left in him and hopes to show off the first one against Chris Tuchscherer Saturday night at UFC 102 in Portland, Ore.
