Miguel Torres: 'A rematch with Brian Bowles is more important to me than a title shot'
(mmamania.com)
Former 135-pound kingpin Miguel Torres goes back to basics after a stunning defeat at the heavy hands of new bantamweight champion Brian Bowles at WEC 42 back in August 2009. Bowles will make his first title defense at WEC 47 on March 6 in a bout that will have Torres driving the Cruz bandwagon so that he can get back into the cage with Bowles and prove his loss was a fluke. Will Torres get his revenge? Or has his storied championship reign come to an end, much like Urijah Faber's did at WEC 36 now that the WEC has a stacked roster?

(bloodyelbow.com)
Drug testing in professional sports has been a hot topic among fans for years. Following the implication of many professional baseball players in the use of performance-enhancing drugs, the scrutiny from the general public, the federal government, and fans of each and every sport has been on the rise. Most fans feel that throwing money at the problem could eventually bring a halt to the steroid era, but there are others who believe it will only diminish the product, a product that is supposed to be consumed as entertainment.

With a fight against Vitor Belfort on the horizon, Silva is committed to defending his middleweight title in April. Afterwards the future is bright for the champ, but undetermined as to what weight class he'll be competing in.

Mike Swick Weighs In on Herschel Walker, Dan Hardy
(cagepotato.com)
"The thing about this sport is, there are so many variables that go into it. He did beat me. And if I would have won then I would have been the No. 1 contender, so you can look at it that way. But just because he won that fight, I don't think that means he deserves a title shot. He's only had three fights in the UFC and he's only had one finish. He hasn't had the same road that a lot of the top welterweights in the UFC have. Even though he beat me, I have to say he doesn't deserve it. If he thinks he does, I'm sorry, but he's wrong." p.s. stop cryin already Swick..i'm starting not to like this guy for more than just this reason...
