Fioravanti Gunning For A KO For The Troops
(mmaweekly.com)
Luigi Fioravanti has rarely had it easy in his UFC career. In two years and seven appearances, he’s taken bouts that no one else wanted, fights where he was the clear underdog. The UFC keeps bringing him back, though, because he always comes to scrap. “They need to let me go fight in England, build my record up,” he says with a laugh. A veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Fioravanti has surely been tested outside the cage. He came to the UFC on a seven-fight win streak, facing then rising star Chris Leben at “Ultimate Fight Night 4.” Leben clearly won the fight, but Fioravanti never gave in to the outspoken brawler and went the distance. In his next fight, he knocked another “Ultimate Fighter” contestant, Solomon Hutchinson, into next Tuesday. Fioravanti believes his “whatever” attitude is the key to longevity, he tells MMAWeekly.com.

"The best part about this is I can go and work for any organization," McCarthy said. "As long as the athletic commission gives it to me, I don't care where it is. I'll do whatever they put me at. I enjoy it all."

UFC 99, Chuck Liddell Vs Randy Couture @ HW, In Germany - June 2009
(bloodyelbow.com)
A strong source indicates to Bloody Elbow that Chuck Liddell is currently in negotiations to move to heavyweight in order to fight Randy Couture. The proposed fight would take place on June 13th in Cologne, Germany. The UFC wants to have Randy on their Germany show because he speaks the language and can do all the promotion. The winner of the fight would face the heavyweight champion in a big fight at the end of the year. Couture is uninterested in moving down to 205 where Forrest Griffin is champion and Wanderlei Silva is also a contender. Both are close to him and in his camp, and weight cutting takes a toll at his age. Given his status, they aren't going to have him fight guys like Cheick Kongo, it is only big fights for Couture at this stage.

Fabricio Werdum wants to fight the best in the world with Affliction
(mmamania.com)
“When I first heard the rumours, I didn’t know anything. I had four more fights left with them on my contract, which ran to 2010. But they demanded to renegotiate my exiting contract by cutting my pay in half…. It’s a pity I would have liked to continue with the UFC but now we forge ahead…. There are several possibilities now including fighting in multiple organizations. Affliction, Sengoku and Dream are big events, but I think the possibility of fighting for Affliction in particular will give me the best chance to fight the best in the world, Fedor, in addition to (Andrei) Arlovski, Josh Barnett and several other big names … that would be a great opportunity for me”"

Goran Reljic is Aquaman
(cagepotato.com)
“Actually this is second time that I know Goran saved a life in the water,” [Reljic’s manager, Zoran Saric] recalled. “Two years ago, he jumped into a wild storm near the cliffs in the Adriatic Sea, where a person was swimming and trying to get out the water, but the waves and current were so strong that they were pulling the person back in. I have no idea how Goran managed to pull that person out of the sea, but he did it.”

Ed Soares Comments On EXC Fighter Contracts
(mmaweekly.com)
The continuing fallout from the demise of EliteXC is still hitting fighters where it hurts the most – in the wallet – and Ed Soares, manager for Brazilian fighters Rafael Feijao and Fabricio Camoes, is hopeful a resolution can be reached soon. "Basically we want to get out," Soares told MMAWeekly Radio recently. "We sent that 30-day notice that they breeched the contract and they're basically saying they didn't. They're still saying that they are putting on events, but it's hard to believe." Soares mentioned the financial difficulty for fighters like Feijao, who was supposed to fight on the cancelled Nov. 8 show, and they all want closure to the situation so the fighters are able to move on. "It's right before Christmas, it's right before the holidays, these guys cancelled the fights," Soares stated. "Rafael Feijao had a title fight on Nov. 8 and it's unfortunate, but on top of all that they're not even going to release them out of their contracts so they (can) sign another deal."

UFC to Hawaii? Not Anytime Soon
(bloodyelbow.com)
According to Dana White, the UFC won't be visiting the Aloha state at any point. If you haven't heard, an onerous tax has been placed on promoters strictly for hosting events. That's keeping White at bay: White, in town to promote the Ultimate Fighting Championship's Jan. 31 fight between champions BJ Penn and George St.-Pierre, says the chances of holding a UFC event in Hawaii are all but dead. The reason? It's too expensive, White says. "We finally get some regulations and they slap this huge tax on us that's out of control, so probably never," White says. "I guess it's their way of saying 'OK, we'll sanction this, but we'll make sure nobody ever shows up and comes and does an event here.'"

(bloodyelbow.com)

In the ever expanding "quest for the best" ADCC Championships is proud to announce that two of the World’s top fighters have agreed to compete in the 2009 ADCC event. ADCC is proud to announce that Pride and Affliciton Champion Fedor Emelianenko, widely considered the World’s best fighter and 2008 Dream Middleweight Champion Gregard Mousassi are set to compete in ADCC 2009. ADCC Europe President Marko Leistén confirmed the fighter’s presence after a meeting with the two fighters manager Aby Echteld in Holland 8th November. Fedor Emelianenko, after conquering the World of MMA, wants to show the World he is also the best Submission Grappler in the World. Fedor want to make history and expand on the pioneer spirit of what Mark Kerr did in the late 90's when he was the Champion of Pride and became the weight and Absolute Champion of ADCC and went on to defend his title in the Superfights for 2 editions. Mousassi, the winner of the 2008 Dream Middleweight Grand Prix where he defeated former World ABJJ Absolute and ADCC middleweight Champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in the final, also wants to test his ground skills against the top names in Submission Grappling. This sets up some humongous possible match-ups such as a re-match with "Jacare" or facing current ADCC Middleweight Champion and rising U.F.C. star Demian Maia.
Nice to see Mark kerr getting some love, he was an absolute beast in ADCC.

Exclusive: Stankie, in His Own Words

We talked with “Stankie” recently to find out who he is and how he came to be standing next to Big Nog, going on semi-coherent rants about sardines. What we learned is that from working undercover during the Watts Riots, to training Oscar de la Hoya for the Olympics, here is a man who has lead an interesting life. And he was more than happy to tell us about it, in his own roundabout way.
