Jamie Varner: Frank Mir's Commentating Was Skewed
(mmamania.com)
According to WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner, UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion and WEC commentator Frank Mir is clearly a far better fighter than commentator. That or, at least according to Varner, Mir is a Donald Cerrone nuthugger and thinks his commentary on Sunday's fight was bs.

Despite Affliction loss, humbled Gilbert Yvel happy to be back in U.S.
(mmajunkie.com)
More than an hour after his third-round submission loss to Josh Barnett, Gilbert Yvel took his seat at the "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" post-event press conference. Despite a swollen face, busted lip and trickles of blood coming from his mouth, the heavyweight fighter was neither dejected nor remorseful. In fact, for a fighter heavily criticized for his past in-fight antics, the slight smile coming from Yvel's busted mug almost gave a sense of relief.

Joe Lauzon goes ‘Nuts’ over fan reaction to brother Dan
(mmamania.com)
Let me tell you, Dan was not looking for any kind of break for anything other than recovering his balls from his throat. Dan is the most stubborn kid I have ever met in my life. He does not want any shortcuts in anything and wants to earn everything he gets. He clearly got kicked in the balls and he took the amount of time he was given. If I got kicked in the balls I wouldn’t want to tie me own shoes, nevermind go out and fight. It happens in fighting and in some cases you don’t need the full time. In other cases, you do…and this was one of those cases. I honestly cannot believe how much **** Dan is catching over this. He gets fouled and then when he takes his time to recover he is the one that’s wrong? He got hit in the nuts and he took his time to recover. That’s it. Its not out fault Bobby Green consistently had terrible accuracy and hit Dan in the balls 3 times. After the third one, they gave Dan the option of the easy win. They told Dan that Bobby would be DQ’ed if he didn’t want to continue. If Dan was looking for an easy way out, he would have said he didn’t want to continue and take the easy win. It would have been the smart move, he could have collected his money and gone home with a win. Instead, he went out and showed those HUGE BALLS and finished the fight like a man.

UFC.com - Hughes, Serra and Sherk weigh in on GSP-Penn II
(ufc.com)
There will be plenty of discussion this week heading into UFC 94’s mega-clash between lightweight champion BJ Penn and welterweight champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre in Las Vegas. After all, this is a highly-anticipated rematch pitting two of the worlds best pound-for-pound fighters, and big fights always make for big business—especially in the futile business of predicting who’s going to do what to the other. Sensationalists, mostly found in blogospheres, will have you believe that Georges St-Pierre is an unmovable object with divined wrestling leverage, and that Penn flies around on a magic carpet and is made of Silly Putty; level-headed sports talk will center more around GSP’s chin and Penn’s cardio. Romantics will remind everyone that a chin is just an extension of the heart, and that cardio is more literally about conditioning. It’s convoluted. The pre-fight hype, that is.

Fedor Undertrained For AA Fight
(bloodyelbow.com)
"He's obviously got unbelievable potential, but he had some distractions getting ready for this fight. The movie. The commercials. If Fedor wants to keep winning, and winning well, he needs to train professionally. Right now he won with his old tricks. "The fact that Fedor won, don't get me wrong, I'm very happy about. But he won this fight because of the training before this fight. The experience he had before this fight. The trainers did everything we could to get him ready. But for title fights, we can't train the way we trained for this one."

(mmajunkie.com)
If plans it has go through soon, UFC may become quite the dictatorship with regards to fighter spnsor deals and money they make outside the Octagon while fattening its wallet in the process. UFC reportedly is considering a new business model requiring any company wanting to sponsor a fighter to work directly with UFC and contracts that give UFC access to some money that ALL fighters generate outside the Octagon.
