Chael Sonnen Declaring War on Anderson Silva
(cagepotato.com)
From the sound of things, he isn’t interested in just dipping his toe in the UFC middleweight waters, either. He’s doing a cannonball aimed straight at Anderson Silva: I’m not going to the UFC with a white flag. My flag is red, I’m declaring war. It’s always like that, all fighters when he grabs the microphone says the same thing, they challenge every fighter in the world, except Anderson Silva. A lot of folks don’t have what it takes, before even fighting they’re all ready yellow. I’m not going to do that, it would really disappointing to my fans. I’m the only fighter who wants to fight him, and the only one who has what it takes to beat him.

Kurt Pellegrino vs Rob Emerson UFC Fight Night 17
(mmamania.com)
Another lightweight bout between Kurt Pellegrino (12-4) and Rob Emerson Record (8-6) is in the works for UFC Fight Night 17 at The Palms Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 7. Already, the Spike TV special features two other 155-pound match ups between Mac Danzig and Josh Neer, as well as Joe Lauzon and Hermes Franca, respectively. Pellegrino will look to string together consecutive wins for the first time in more than a year. “Batman” is coming off a solid unanimous decision win over Thiago Tavares at UFC 88: “Breakthrough” back in September. He has flirted with being recognized as a top competitor in a very crowded division on numerous occasions throughout his career; however, he has been plagued by inconsistency in recent bouts. Pellegrino can get back in the thick of things in 2009 with an early win to start the year over a surging Emerson.

The Return of James Lee
I just happened to run into James Lee today at "Hayes Market" and talked to him for a bit before he went to the airport. I asked him about his back injury and he said "everything was great and feels better than before he got hurt". Some good news to hear as we all know what happened when he fought last in the UFC. I then asked if he was going to be fighting any time soon and he told me he was going to fight in MARCH. There is no word he said on who he will be fighting. Who do you think he will fight??? Just thought I would let you guys in on the scoop as I don't think there is any information yet on the fight card for March. By the way if anyone wants to know information about his new GYM he opened up please feel free to send me a message and i will forward you what ever you need. I know there is no website to confirm this as I said I ran into him at the store so take it for what its worth

(finalimage.biz)
New Era Fighting Lawsuit Threat Pressures CSAC Head's Garcia Resignation IRVINE, California (December 1, 2008) – The recent resignation of embattled California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) Executive Director Armando Garcia apparently came from pressure applied after it was announced a year ago that New Era Fighting (NEF) was filing a $500,000,000 lawsuit against Garcia, alleging a pattern and practice by the California State Athletic Commission of intentionally, willfully and viciously interfering with a licensed and approved event, which effected and injured New Era Fighting in the same or similar fashion as other mixed martial arts promoters, managers and fighters
