Affliction signs Tito Ortiz - as a broadcaster, not a fighter
(mmajunkie.com)
In a Monday release, Affliction Entertainment announced that Ortiz would be part of the star-studded press conference for its Jan. 24 pay-per-view event. The announcement even prompted some reports that, during today's event, Ortiz would announce he had signed a fight contract with the company. Instead, Ortiz was introduced as a color commentator for the "Day of Reckoning" broadcast.

Affliction Responds to UFC's Counter-programming
(dreamfighters.com)
I do not consider this act to be an act of counter-programming by the UFC. The UFC regularly features on Spike stories of upcoming fights (such as the St. Pierre vs Penn II fight). On the same basis, the UFC Unleashed program airs regularly at this time. Lastly, the notion that showing a rerun of the Couture vs. Lesnar fight could impact Trump’s Affliction “Day Of Reckoning” event is absurd. I say this for two (2) reasons: First, we all know the result of the fight which was considered by many fans and pundits mediocre at best. Secondly, no fan of the sport, whether a die hard fan or casual, would miss Affliction’s stacked fight card to watch this repeat.

Mike Swick Proves He's Back On Track
(mmaweekly.com)
If there’s one ideal that’s become all too commonplace in sports, it is “what have you done for me lately?” What someone may have accomplished in the past can quickly be forgotten if in the eyes of observers they haven’t performed up to those previous standards in recent times. For Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight Mike “Quick” Swick that is must have been how it felt to him – despite his impressive credentials for both the promotion and in his overall MMA career – when people began to doubt him and his skills.

No Shadow, Arlovski Could Change Everything
(mmaweekly.com)
Vadim Finkelstein made an offer; Andrei Arlovski refused. It was 2005, the time of Arlovski's reign as UFC heavyweight champion. His talent and ambition had brought him Stateside in April of 2000 after capturing the European crown of Finkelstein's promotion, M-1 Mix Fight, earlier that year. His UFC 28 debut was a success, announcing his presence in the then-struggling company with a submission victory over Aaron Brink. Arlovski slowly worked his way to the top of the UFC's heavyweight division, persisting through setbacks at UFC 32 and 36 to wrest the interim, and later official, title away from Tim Sylvia at UFC 51. He was living his American dream. Then, his old boss came calling. "Vadim contacted me and said, 'I want you to be a member of my team; train with Fedor,'"

Former Cage Rage contender Neil 'The Goliath' Grove has been given a four-fight deal by the UFC, Fighters Only can exclusively report. Grove (7-1) is a 6’6” 280lb Go-Ju Ryu Karate stylist who holds a ten-second knockout win over Pride FC veteran James Thompson and two wins over Robert ‘Buzz’ Berry, who defeated Ken Shamrock by KO earlier this year. He told Fighters Only earlier: “I signed a contract today and sent it back to my manager. And he will be forwarding it to the UFC. “It’s a four-fight deal; I don’t know who my first opponent is, but my manager did say it might be at UFC 95 in February.”

TUF 8 Finale Averages 1.9 Million Viewers
(mmajunkie.com)
The ratings for the TUF 8 Finale on Spike are out and it's a very mixed bag. The show did a 1.3 rating with 1.9 million viewers-while it was the #1 program on all TV in its timeslot among men 18-34, it also was down from the season 7 finale and was the 2nd-lowest rated finale yet. Only the TUF 4 Finale did worse.

Cantwell Explains Controversial Comment
(mmaontap.com)
Following Steve Cantwell’s impressive submission victory over Razak Al Hassan at last week’s UFC Fight for the Troops, the victor gave a post fight interview that included some comment that many have felt were inappropriate. Cantwell won the fight via armbar in which his opponent’s elbow dislocated due to the pressure applied. While being interviewed by Joe Rogan, Cantwell said that he had “always wanted to do that” and seemingly was very pleased when he watched the replay and saw the joint dislocate. ...like I said in other threads...he's not a bad guy, he just got caught up in the moment.

Evans takes relaxed approach
(uk.eurosport.yahoo.com)
"If I am out there and I see him sort of looking relaxed or looking like he thinks it is going to be complacent first round then I will go out there and try to knock his head off." "I know he does kick well to the legs, but I am not really very worried about it, to be honest. "If he lands a couple of solid kicks, it could do some damage, but hopefully I am going to keep moving around enough and check those kicks when they come, if not and he catches me then I have to make him pay."
