'Henderson Not Signed Anywhere'
(sherdog.com)
Dan Henderson remains an unsigned commodity, the fighter’s business partner and manager, Aaron Crecy, told Sherdog.com late Thursday, responding to a new report that states the top-five middleweight has signed with Strikeforce. “Dan hasn’t signed anywhere,” said Crecy. Crecy has stepped forward twice in the last three weeks to counter claims that his client had signed with the UFC’s biggest U.S. competitor. In mid-October, the middleweight and his managerial team also squashed reports that Henderson was close to signing a deal with Strikeforce. Henderson and the UFC have been stuck on the monetary terms of a new five-fight agreement since late July. In that time, UFC President Dana White has described the renegotiations as anywhere from “stalemated” to “done.” However, Sherdog.com has direct knowledge from multiple parties involved that talks between both sides have continued the entire time and even into this week. On Wednesday, White again commented publicly about Henderson. “I guarantee you 1,000 percent that Dan Henderson is signed by Strikeforce,” White told Yahoo Sports. Crecy said the statement is 100 percent false. “Anyone that would report that is misinformed,” he said.

Strikeforce signs ‘Relentless’ Roger Bowling for 2010 debut
(mmamania.com)
Indiana ( USA ): “Relentless” Roger Bowling, the undefeated MMA Big Show Welterweight kingpin, has signed a contract with San Jose-based StrikeForce, one of the top MMA promotions in America . The signing took place during intermission at the “Full Force” event on Saturday, Oct. 24th. Bowling, who has yet to go to a decision or even see the 2nd round in his career, is considered by many to be one of the top welterweight prospects in MMA. Known for his cardio, brutal strikes, and excellent wrestling, he is expected to make his StrikeForce debut in February or March 2010. He holds quality wins over former IFL fighter Seth Baczynski and current StrikeForce fighter Shamar Bailey, and his last fight was a victory over Devon Plaisance via TKO at Big Show’s “Unstoppable” event in July.

Jacaré vs. Lindland possible at Strikeforce
(tatame.com)
“I only have rumors that I might fight in December, but Strikerforce didn’t announce anything yet“, said Souza, excited with the possibility to face Lindland. “If this fight happens, I’ll be very happy. He’s an excellent athlete... This fight is everything I wanted, fight with the best, only tough fighters“. In case of confirmation, it wouldn’t be the first time that Jacaré and Matt face each other. On ADCC 2003, the fighters fought each other at the quarter finals, and the Brazilian won without much trouble with an arm-lock (remember on the video below). “It’s not Submission, it’s a whole different game on MMA“, guarantees Jacaré, excited for the debut. “The expectation is high, I’m training very focused. When the times comes, I’ll be ready to do my work and represent Brazil“,

Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller doesn’t want to hug Jake Shields on Nov. 7 …
(mmamania.com)
“I think it’s funny how some people are underestimating me. I’m shocked at the odds. I should be the favorite. But oddsmakers’ jobs are to make money and to get action. I’m going to turn this into a brawl. I’m not interested in turning it into a hugging contest, which is what he may do. I want to keep the fight at a fast pace, while I think Jake will want to slow it down and grind it out. It’s possible, if I have my way, and Shields does his part, that we will have the fight of the night.” *let me just say this..it's OVER for you Shields..Mayhem via tKO

(mmaweekly.com)
It’s been rumored for quite some time, but a welterweight bout former Cage Rage champion Paul Daley and former World Extreme Cagefighting champion Carlos Condit finally has ink to paper. The bout will take place on Jan. 2 at UFC 108. Daley (22-8-2) enters the bout following a TKO stoppage of Martin Kampmann in the first round at UFC 103. The bout in Dallas put an exclamation point on Daley’s Octagon debut against an opponent that Condit lost a split decision to earlier this year.

Jon Fitch: "Waiting around for Thiago Alves to get better was not an option"
(mmamania.com)
“I needed to fight, I was (previously) scheduled for Nov. 21 and I’ve been training 5-6 weeks already. I don’t like a lot of down time, I like to fight often. Waiting around for Thiago (Alves) to get better was not an option. The last week has just been up and down, changing training camps from one day to the next and emotionally getting up and down for different opponents. Mike Pierce is not well know but sometimes these kinds of fights are harder than the high profile fights because people expect you to go out and smash a guy they don’t know so if you don’t, they hold it against you. This fight can very easily turn into one of my tougher fights.” Former UFC welterweight number one contender Jon Fitch shares the frustration of undergoing multiple changes in both events and opponents after Ricardo Almeida and Thiago Alves both went down with knee injuries and were forced out of action.
