Hulk Hogan: MMA is spanking the WWE pay-per-view business, brother
"MMA is spanking the WWE as far as the pay-per-view stuff. Dana White and the UFC has done an amazing job, and it's all about timing. The UFC was ready to close its doors, they were losing a ton of money, they were going under, they were getting ready to go out of business, and then they did a reality show called The Ultimate Fighter. They developed the characters; they made people care about the fighters; the people found out who the fighters were; they breathed life into the fighters. That's what I want to do with TNA. They've got the best talent in the world down there, but no one is breathing life into the characters. I have learned a ton of stuff from MMA, watching them. They remind me of TNA. Ton of talent, but no one has put that Frankenstein, shock the monster, breath some life into the characters. I learned a ton from MMA, and I get along great with Dana White -- he's awesome."

Thiago Silva content with Machida rematch after UFC 108 win
The 2010 plan for Brazilian slugger Thiago Silva (14-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) is a simple one: get another shot at Lyoto Machida. The former light heavyweight title challenger already took one step toward that goal with a spectacular TKO of Keith Jardine in August. Now he hopes to take another with a win over Rashad Evans (13-1-1 MMA, 8-1-1 UFC) in the main event of Saturday's "UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva" event in Las Vegas.

Yvel Plans To Take Full Advantage Of UFC Shot
When Affliction entertainment nailed up the shutters, the famed Dutch striker was left in limbo. He had been vocal about his UFC aspirations in the past, but nothing was set in stone until Gabriel Gonzaga was forced to withdraw from his bout at UFC 108, opposite rising contender Junior Dos Santos.From there, negotiations sped up and the Pride veteran quickly inked a deal with the UFC to fill in for “Napao” for the televised portion of the Jan. 2 fight card.

Exclusive: Cole Miller in a Rush to Win Again at UFC 108
Losing is always miserable, but in a combat sport like MMA, getting beaten is no figure of speech. If you lose, you hurt; physically and badly. The risk and danger involved in MMA competition helps make it more exciting than other sports, but behind every highlight-reel knockout and submission is ugly and unfortunate pain — at least for the guy laid out.

Ronaldo Jacaré Wants Jake Shields
Dan Henderson, Jake Shields or Jason Miller: if you could choose, with who would you like to fight and how do you think that the fight would be? Jake Shields... He has the belt. Gegard Mousasi has the belt of the category above. Do you think about changing category to have this revenge? What would you make different? I’m a professional athlete and I don’t keep remembering the defeats.

Mousasi's 2010 Plans: Strikeforce, DREAM, LHWGP, Boxing
Yes, boxing. It would seem that Gegard Mousasi has quite a full plate on his 2010 schedule: His manager says in the first half of the year Mousasi will appear in both Strikeforce and DREAM, then participate in the DREAM Light Heavyweight GP scheduled to start in May and continue in July, and depending on the Strikeforce schedule after that he may even do some boxing.

Herschel Walker Fighting For Unemployed Husbands & Housewives Nationwide On 1/30
Don't laugh. He might be older than even Randy Couture but he's also out to show the world that, as the old adage goes, age ain't nothing but a number. He says "I want to prove to all the 47-year-olds that if you get out of work you can do anything. To all the housewives and the husbands sitting on the couch saying they can't do anything, I want to prove that they can -- they just gotta get up and do it."

Bas Rutten ‘Living Mixed Martial Arts Part III’
Once a year, PDG talks with Legendary Fighter and Analyst “El Guapo” Bas Rutten and asks him questions regarding the world of mixed martial arts and what his personal opinions are in regards to the year of fighting in review. The following is Part III of a great series of interviews involving the former King of Pancrase, the host of HDNet’s Inside MMA, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion and the man well regarded as one of the greatest mixed martial artists to enter a cage or ring.

PDG: So do you think the fans will ever get to see Josh Barnett fight Fedor Emelianenko? Bas Rutten: I don't think it is going to happen and if it happens it will be in Japan. I think that Josh is going to have a very difficult time getting another fight in the United States. Who is going to take the risk to promote that fight with the liabilities from his past that he would bring if he was put into a main event again. It's like the actors that get banged up on drugs and alcohol; they become liabilities and can cause a whole movie production to go down the drain. So you see them less and less involved in the industry because nobody wants to work with them. It's a shame.

Dana White talks Gilbert Yvel
UFC fans will get their first glimpse of maverick Dutch kickboxer Gilbert Yvel at UFC 108 on Saturday. "The Hurricane" comes in as a replacement for Gabriel Gonzaga to fight Brazilian heavyweight contender Junior Dos Santos in what promises to be the sleeper event in Las Vegas. "The guy's an amazing striker," said White. "He's the only guy to ever knockout Cheick Kongo. He beat Semmy Schilt and just recently knocked out Pedro Rizzo.

Frank Mir Denies Steroids Played a Role in His Growth
"I'm not gonna steer that route. The UFC drug tests the hell out of us. I get randomly drug tested all the time because I'm with the UFC. I'm sure there's a way around everything but that's a lot of stress." Mir said it would be too much to deal with before a fight. He told Cagewriter that he was incredibly lean with low body fat at UFC 100. After the fight, he immediately ballooned up to 265 pounds. He worked with elite former Strongman contestant Mark Philippi to add the bulk and strength the right way. Mir is hoping to be walking around at 280 pounds by his next fight.

King Mo accepts fine, promises more antics
“King” Mo Lawal was fined 10 percent of his $10,000 fight purse by the California State Athletic Commission for spraying Rockstar energy drink in the cage at Strikeforce: Evolution. The act was a celebration following his knockout victory over Mike Whitehead on Dec. 19, at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. Lawal isn’t happy with the fine, but understands the commission rules the roost. “I just celebrated. You know what I’m saying? It’s not a big deal. It’s not like I kept on hitting him after the bell rang or when the referee stepped in,” Lawal told MMAWeekly.com content partner TapouT Radio. “Let’s keep it real. It‘s not that big of a deal.” He asks, “Why should they punish me for celebrating?”

Stout enjoys profitable if odd year in the UFC
It's been a profitable if somewhat strange year for Canadian fighter Sam (Hands of Stone) Stout. Stout won a decision over (Handsome) Matt Wiman at UFC 97 in April, picking up a US$70,000 fight of the night bonus in the process. The 25-year-old lightweight from London, Ont., was slated to meet Phillipe Nover next at a card Sept. 16 in Oklahoma City but the mixed martial arts bout was called off when Nover had a seizure in the locker-room.

The Blueprint: Thiago Silva
There are only a few things in life that are certain: death, taxes and Evans-Silva ending inside the distance. That’s right. I said it. There is no possible way that the main event at UFC 108 will last the full three rounds. No chance. None whatsoever. Why? Styles make fights, and Evans’ counter punching mixed with Silva’s go-for-broke mentality means that this one is going to end early.\

Fighting a restrictive MMA judging system
When UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida got his hand raised on Oct. 24 after his title defense against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, in a fight where most polls showed about 80 percent of the public believed the title should have changed hands, it set off a series of three straight major-show UFC main events in which judging became a hotly debated issue. But some of the most vehement response has come from a surprising source: the judges themselves, some of whom feel handcuffed and frustrated with the system in place.
