Danillo Villefort cut from UFC after just 1 fight
The truth is, the UFC answered all of these questions with their decision to release Danillo and fighters need to take it as a warning that, right or wrong, in the days of big PPV numbers the promotion doesn't have time for fighters that they feel don't deliver for the fans.

Belfort doesn't want to fight Silva, but Silva would not mind
Vitor Belfort isn’t that high on an opportunity to challenge Anderson Silva for his 185-pound crown. He’ll do it, but it’s not an ideal situation to compete against a fellow Brazilian and someone who he considers a friend. However, Silva has remarked that Belfort is not his friend, but someone who he respects and is willing to fight without reservation if called upon. “The Phenom” is the latest addition to the UFC middleweight class and someone who company president, Dana White, would like to see earn a title shot to one day challenge “The Spider.” Before that can happen, however, both fighters need to take care of other business — Belfort is set to battle Rich Franklin next month and Silva is penciled in to take on Dan Henderson before year’s end. Are Belfort and Silva on a collision course, whether they like it or not?

Chuck to dance with Anna Trebunskaya
Looking back now, it's hard to believe there was a time when we thought that continuing to fight in the UFC was the worst thing Chuck Liddell could do for his long-term health and career legacy. Then he decided to join a televised dance contest with a bunch of "celebrities" and a disgraced former congressman, and suddenly we find ourselves wishing that he'd just come back and get hit in the head over and over again instead.

Frank Mir: Fedor Emelianenko Is Ducking Top Fighters in UFC
When Frank Mir owned the UFC interim heavyweight title, he always made clear that he didn't believe his own belt made him the best heavyweight in the world: Mir, like most MMA observers, said that Fedor Emelianenko is the top heavyweight. But now Mir's opinion has changed. Asked on the DAM Show why he thought Fedor had chosen to fight for Strikeforce instead of the UFC, Mir echoed UFC President Dana White and others who have suggested that Fedor isn't interested in proving himself against UFC champion Brock Lesnar and the other top fighters in the UFC.

Having defeated Marloes Coenen, Belgian fighter Cindy Dandois says she's ready for "Cyborg"
For a brief period in women's MMA, it seemed the fashionable thing to do was to call out fan favorite Gina Carano (7-1). Everyone wanted a piece of "The Face of Women's MMA," knowing that a win could catapult them to instant stardom. For Belgian fighter Cindy Dandois (1-0), Carano's just the start. Dandois, whose lone career win came against Strikeforce's top female contender Marloes Coenen (16-3), wants Carano, slugger Erin Toughill (10-2-1) and, oh yeah, champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (8-1).
