Where The UFC "Fight For The Troops" Began
(bloodyelbow.com)
UFC's Lorenzo Fertitta not only has contacts throughout MMA, but in all walks of life. One of those contacts-Fisher House vice chairman Arnold Fisher, one of many working with the Department of Defense to help build the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, MD, originally contacted Fertitta about raising money for the project. And so began the plan that became UFC: Fight For The Troops.

12 Questions for Pat Miletich
(sherdog.com)
Back to Fighting When you’ve been in the game as long as Pat Miletich has, you need to be either training yourself or training someone else for a fight. If you’re not, you feel like something is not right, that the rhythm of life is disrupted. That’s part of why the 40-year-old Miletich (28-7-2), the UFC’s first welterweight champion and founder of the once-dominant Miletich Fighting Systems camp, took a fight against Thomas “Wildman” Denny. The fight on Thursday night will headline the latest offering from Monte Cox’s “Adrenaline” promotion, which airs live from Moline, Ill., on HDNet. Two years after a swift loss via guillotine choke to Renzo Gracie in the IFL, Miletich, one of MMA’s most tenured sages, spoke to Sherdog about his return, Brock Lesnar, the illness at UFC 35 that allegedly caused accidents and hallucinations in the cage, and the future of his heralded camp. Q: What moved you to take a fight now? A: Well, it’s a couple of different reasons. I’m tired of not competing, something I’ve done since I was five years old. It basically drives me insane to not have goals and not work towards things. I love the adrenaline, love fighting, love the crowd, the fans, things like that. I love the camaraderie of training with a lot of guys and everybody working toward a goal. Also it’s Monte Cox, who has been my manager for my entire career, doing the Adrenaline shows. It’s nice to be part of that. The show probably wouldn’t have taken place here in the Quad Cities, my hometown, had I not fought on the card. And so that would be one less fight that my guys get. It’s a televised bout, it gives those guys more exposure, so hopefully it will help those guys be seen by more eyes and get some contracts for those guys. They’re all very tough, world-class fighters on the card from my gym. I want to see those guys’ careers move on and do great things.

Rising Star Ronys Torres Signs With UFC
(mmaweekly.com)
People make do with the cards they have been dealt with; some rise above the rest. Ronys Torres (no relation to WEC's Miguel Torres) has endured humble beginnings to become one of the best lightweight prospects out of Brazil today. There is a lot of fighting opportunities for Torres in Brazil, but none that will garner him the high profile matches he can attain in the U.S. Ronys Torres recently signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He should debut next year.

M-1's "Crazy Russians" Extend UFC An Invite
(mmaweekly.com)
For over a year now UFC President Dana White has used an open forum to label the management of Fedor Emelianenko, led by M-1 President Vadim Finkelchtein, as "the crazy Russians." However, during a recent M-1 Challenge event, Finkelchtein responded to White's statements in an interview conducted by M-1 executives Joost Raimond (serving as Finkelchtein's translator) and Jerry Millen (serving as the interviewer). Thanks to a three-part series, members of the U.S. MMA media are finally being presented the other side of the story so that they can form an opinion for themselves. All 3 parts can be viewed after the jump.

Paul ''Semtex''Daley Wants UFC Fights In 2009
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Standout UK welterweight Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley believes that 2009 might be the year we see him entering the UFC. Speaking with Fighters Only after his stoppage win over John Alessio, a veteran of that organisation, Daley was asked about his future plans. “Alessio was a great win for me. I'm still never 100 per cent happy with any of my performances, but hey... I won, and I stopped him via TKO, something that has never been done before,” he said. “So I think 2009 is the year for Semtex to arrive in the UFC.”

Mike Swick seeks defining performance in third welterweight bout
(mmajunkie.com)
Mike Swick isn't satisfied. Not yet anyway. Despite a dominant performance in a unanimous-decision victory over Marcus Davis at UFC 85, Swick doesn't believe he has hit his stride as a welterweight. Never mind that he convincingly beat a fighter who had not lost in 11 consecutive fights over a nearly three-year period. It wasn't good enough for Swick.

Phillipe Nover earns Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt
(mmamania.com)
“My teacher Soca gave me my black belt today. It has been a long journey and I have finally arrived. I’ve been training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for over 8 years. To me, obtaining a black belt brings the art to full circle. I will continue to train just as hard as I have been and will strive to the top. Thank you to all my training partners and teachers, especially Soca for believing in me! I only hope to make you all proud next week and bring home victory! I will keep this fire in me burning. My time is now!”

Yoshida Ready To Surprise Koscheck
(mmaweekly.com)
For Japanese judoka Yoshiyuki Yoshida, the excitement to finally get his second fight in the Octagon is about to hit a fever pitch. He will headline the upcoming UFC Fight for the Troops card on Dec. 10 in Fayetteville, N.C. against Josh Koscheck. After Karo Parisyan was forced out of their scheduled bout at UFC 88 in September just 24 hours away from the bout, Yoshida had to face disappointment instead of a challenge, but he remained hopeful for a big fight in his future. "It was really hard. I trained very hard for that fight and of course I cut weight for that fight. So if I have a chance, I do like to ask Karo how is he doing though, but since I am not the one who pulled out of that fight, I believe I had a right to fight first (before Karo), and UFC did make a fight for me, so I really appreciate that," Yoshida told MMAWeekly.com in an exclusive interview. "This (opponent canceling the fight) also does happen a lot in an intense sport like MMA, so I am not thinking too much about it anymore. I just wait for UFC to decide my opponent and I train hard to win that fight. That's all now."

Silva: Machida "Runs More Than He Fights"
(mmamania.com)
Thiago Silva-who is certainly not short on confidence-is already beating his war drum several weeks out from his clash with fellow unbeaten light heavyweight Lyoto Machida at UFC 94. Perhaps it’s part of his pre-fight plan to rattle the cage of the “ghostly” Brazilian and get him to engage more often on fight night.

Resident Yvel
(sherdog.com)
In a sport where an evening of hyperextensions and blood-faucet noses is considered getting off lightly, it should come as little surprise that some real savages occasionally enter the ring. You’ve got to have a misplaced synapse or two to eat pain for a living.
