Mousasi Not A Fan Of Lawal's Crown
That makes two of us. Responding to recent comments from Muhammad Lawal, Gegard Mousasi says a fight between the two-possibly as soon as April-will happen in due time, and he'll sign the fight-just not Lawal's crown. "I don't know about the crown," he scoffed. He also commented on Lawal's confidence, he's even gone as far as calling out Fedor: "Once you get knocked out once in your life, you're not the same fighter," Mousasi said. "He even challenges Fedor (Emelianenko) with six fights, so I don't know what to say about that. "He's confident because he's never lost. I want to see how he reacts when I punch him, and how he fights then."

Paul Daley - GSP will Lose & Koscheck will get KTFO
Paul Daley “Semtex Ready to Explode on Koscheck”

PDG: Obviously fighters like to hype fights; here what Josh had to say in recent interview: "I plan on rearranging them teeth in his mouth. He already has those braces and those messed up teeth. So maybe we'll put some railroad spikes in there." Is this just hype or is there really bad blood between the two you? Paul Daley: Koscheck is just hyping the fight up. He isn’t the man behind those words and that is unfortunate for him because I am the man behind the words when I say that I am going to knock him the **** out.

MMA in Ontario? Not so fast...
"It's just not a priority for us at this point in time, we have higher priorities when it comes to developing those jobs and strengthening the economy. We have other things on the go right now, and we'll stay focused on those, whether that's our tax reforms, stimulating the economy through investments in infrastructure, getting our children better opportunities at the outset."

Josh Barnett: Stop the BS and come correct if you want to see me fight
"My issue is only with California. I can fight anywhere in the world and any state in the Union ... as soon as any promotion out there stops bullshittin' and comes correct, that's all. Now if they want me to fight, all they gotta do is step up to the plate, throw me an opportunity and don't put something in front of me that's a slap in my face or ridiculous. I've talked to [Strikeforce] but I'm not really gonna get too much into that."

Will UFC 110 Be the Last Hurrah for Mirko Cro Cop, Wanderlei Silva, Keith Jardine or Stephan Bonnar?
At UFC 110, four ... fighters could find themselves on the outside looking in. No longer relevent in a sport that changes and evolves like the wind, and yesterday's hero's turn into shells of their former selves almost overnight. I think UFC 110 will feature four fighters that are past the 'crossroads' in their career so to speak.

"I will definitely fight Fedor this year. There's no doubt about it, unless he says no. I don't believe he will, but I’m a little worried about his managers. I'm sure he wants to fight, but I’m not sure people behind him do too."
