(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Young Dutch heavyweight Stefan Struve is being courted by the UFC and a number of other large MMA promotions. Struve (22-2) told Fighters Only today that he and his coach Bob Schreiber have been discussing a deal with UFC executives. “We’re in talks but we didn’t sign anything yet. We’ve got a couple of options so we are looking at the best one now,” he said. “We have also talked with both Dream and Affliction, so there will be a choice to make!”

Ciesnolevicz Sees Adrenaline As Springboard
(mmaweekly.com)
During the days of the International Fight League, one team rose above the others, claiming all but one team title during the promotion’s history. Lead by MMA legend and former Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight titleholder Pat Miletich, the Quad Cities Silverbacks not only produced multiple world team tournament championships, but also helped introduce some exciting young talent into the MMA spotlight. Among the new faces to the big stage was light-heavyweight Mike Ciesnolevicz. During his time in the IFL, he proved a formidable opponent, and after the company folded, Ciesnolevicz went old school by winning two fights in two days earlier this year. Still, he yearns to return to the spotlight, and will get an opportunity to do so on the Dec. 11 Adrenaline card, headlined by his former IFL coach and mentor.

If Badr Hari was suspended indefinitely after his K-1 WGP Finals debacle, which some rumors out of Japan suggest, that indefinite suspension may not be long. A Croatian source is reporting that Hari has been offered a K-1 Dynamite!! fight against Mirko Cro Cop. Another remote but extremely unlikely possibility for Hari is Alistair Overeem, now rumored to fight Sergei Kharitonov at Dynamite.

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

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

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.
