Nevada Expresses Concern Over 'TUF' Behaviour
(mmaweekly.com)
At a meeting in December for which an official summary was released yesterday, Nevada State Athletic Commission officials expressed concerns to UFC officials about some of the behavior that was exhibited during the controversial eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter. For each season of The Ultimate Fighter, dating back to the first season's filming in late 2004, Zuffa has requested and been granted a waiver of the NSAC's regulations relating to the results of NSAC-sanctioned fights being posted publicly. This allows the results of the fights on The Ultimate Fighter to remain secret until the fights air on Spike TV months later. These waivers must be requested and granted for each individual season of TUF. Prior to granting the usual waivers to Zuffa for the upcoming ninth season, which recently started filming and is tentatively scheduled to begin airing on April 1, the NSAC wanted to talk to Zuffa about some of the behavior in the eighth season.

Maia: “Sonnen is a dangerous guy”
(tatame.com)
Without a perfect career in MMA, Demian Maia faces a tough opponent in his return to UFC. Set for the UFC 95, the Brazilian faces Chael Sonnen, the responsible for the only loss in Paulo Filho’s MMA career, last November. "He won the Paulão and that is not for everyone. Despite that Paulão wasn’t in the best conditions, he’s a tough opponent to be beaten", said Demian. Training strongly for the fight, held on February 21st in London, England, the BJJ black belt expects a studied fight against the American: “I have to be careful, he’s a dangerous guy and very strategic, he won’t fall into me, he would fight to defeat me by points”, bets Demian, keeping the style that rendered him four wins by submission.

Mainstream Appeal of MMA Becomes Apparent At CES
(mmapayout.com)
The long hard road that leads to the mainstream acceptance of mixed martial arts has seemingly been becoming much easier of late, whether it be a Microsoft commercial featuring Rashad Evans or video game’s featuring Randy Couture and Gina Carrano, the sport is fast becoming acceptable where before it was once dismissed as just another extreme sport fad. While the use of MMA personalities to promote products and services is not as common as it is for other professional athletes, its acceptance has grown almost in lock step with the popularity of the sport itself, nowhere was this more apparent then 2009’s installment of the Consumer Electronics Trade show in Las Vegas this past weekend.

UFC 93: Dan Henderson Q & A
(telegraph.co.uk)
GAD: You're 38. Does retirement enter your mind? DH: It's hard to know when that moment is. There's a lot of fighters going through that dilemma. Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, it must be going through their heads. There's things I want to accomplish that are attainable in this sport, and if I attain them, it would probably be a good time to retire. I want to beat Anderson Silva (the sport's No 1 pound for pounder, who Henderson lost to two years ago) and I also want to fight for the 205 lb belt. And then retire.

Fun and Games Part of the Plan for ‘King Mo'
(sherdog.com)
He comes out to the ring with his four queens. He dances and tries to get the referee involved in his routine before his fights. He might be called arrogant, cocky and maybe even disrespectful. But if you ask him, that’s just who Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal is.

Ricardo Arona eyes return to Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) in 2009
(mmamania.com)
“I’ve got news, I want to fight at ADCC 2009. My idea is to talk to the organizers and see if there’s a possibility of my being invited, for all the titles I’ve won at the event. I don’t really want to go through the trials in Rio, especially since it’s already too close to the event to be able to train properly. That’s why my idea is to go straight into the main tournament, to go right up against all the toughest from around the world. I even called up Paulo [Filho] to see if he’d get motivated about participating, but he says he doesn’t want to. So I came up with the organizers’ Email, and I’ll be contacting them to see about an invite. I’m excited.”

Mark Coleman has strong words for Shogun at the UFC 93 press conference
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
"He is a legend in this sport and it is a pleasure to fight him again,” said Rua. But when Coleman took the stand, he rounded on the Brazilian and questioned the sincerity of his words. Shogun has “called me two-faced, said it was a lucky win [in the first fight] and now he says he respects me. I don’t know which it is,” he said. “I’ve heard he’s said I might get my leg broken. Well Shogun, if you can break it, I won’t say you were lucky, I will say ‘good job’."
