Matyushenko Ready For Lil Nog
(mmaweekly.com)
Sometimes a fight goes under the radar during the hyping period that often precursors large MMA events. For this Saturday’s Affliction show, "Day of Reckoning," that fight could very well be the light-heavyweight mach-up between Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Vladimir “The Janitor” Matyushenko. While both fighters are widely regarded as Top 10 talent, the unassuming nature of each man makes for a fight that could easily exceed expectations.

MMA Quick Quote: Fedor Emelianenko and Kirill Sidelnikov beat each other with branches
(mmamania.com)
“The sauna helps with rejuvenation between practices. We boil the water, then we get the steam. We get massages and beat each other with branches. It helps get rid of all the lactic acid. It helps with restoration so you can start the week full of energy.” – The last man to hold the Pride FC heavyweight title, Fedor Emelianenko, reveals a bizarre (and perhaps antiquated) recuperative practice that he and his primary training partner, Kirill Sidelnikov, often rely on to stay fresh after training sessions. The sauna is located in a rundown house in Emelianenko’s hometown of Stary Oskol, Russia. The odd-looking procedure was demonstrated through fogged glass during the 60-minute “Baddest Man on the Planet” special, which aired on FOX Sports Net (FSN) this evening. If you missed the show, go watch it. Fedor is unlike any other major mixed martial arts fighter in the world on so many different levels. It’s remarkable, really.

Overeem: ''I'll Sign For The UFC When The Money Is Right''
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Alistair Overeem is keen on a move to the UFC and will sign with the organisation if offered the appropriate financial incentive. The Dutch heavyweight had a good year in 2008, manhandling Mirko 'CroCop' Filopovic and stopping K-1 champion Badr Hari under kickboxing rules. Overeem was ringside at UFC 93 and, when asked by Fighters Only if he would be signing with the organisation, said: "It's possible."

Despite Third Round, Henderson Happy With Win
(mmaweekly.com)
Dan Henderson is breathing easier after his win over Rich Franklin. The same could not be said, however, by the third round of their fight. Franklin’s best strike, a left roundhouse to Henderson’s midsection, had taken its toll and was slowing the former Pride champ down in the main event of Saturday's UFC 93. “I caught the knee right to my ribs a couple of times, and really felt that in the third round,” said the plain-spoken Henderson. “It affected my breathing a little bit.”

UFC vets Ken Shamrock and Tank Abbott in negotiations for April fight
(mmajunkie.com)
Feb. 13 WarGods and Ken Shamrock Productions event at the Fresno Arena in Fresno, Calif., features Frank Shamrock in the main event and fellow UFC trailblazer David "Tank" Abbott in the co-headline bout. After the "The Valentine"s Eve Massacre" show, a Shamrock vs. Abbott fight could take place in April. According to an official announcement from KSP, the Shamrock-Abbott fight is in the "final stages of negotiations." It's tentatively planned for late April in Reno, Nev. "There are a lot of fans that have followed this for years, die-hard fans, who want to see this and reminisce a little bit," stated Shamrock, who turns 45 next month. First up, though, Shamrock (26-13-2) meets Ross Clifton (6-8), a super-heavyweight who's 1-5 in his past six fights. All six of Clifton's victories have ended in the first round -- three in less than a minute. Abbott (9-14), meanwhile, returns to action for the first time since his February 2008 loss to Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson. Abbott, who debuted at UFC 6 and fought for the heavyweight title at UFC 15, has lost eight of his past nine fights (all in the first round). He now takes on Mike Bourke (8-11-1), a King of the Cage veteran who's 1-7 (with one no-contest) in his past nine fights.

Fedor Unsurprised By Nogueiras' Loss
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Fedor Emelianeno said he was unsurprised by Antonio ‘Minotauro’ Nogueira’s recent knockout loss to Frank Mir. The Russian has faced Nogueira and beaten him twice (with one no contest) and although he did not stop him, he says it was a certainty that somebody eventually would. "It did not surprise me. Antonio had already been punished enough over the years, had many struggles and sooner or later that will catch up with you,”
