Don King Prepared To Monetize MMA, Take On UFC
(mmamania.com)
And not only that, but he actually discussed MMA without trashing it in favor of boxing. The famed boxing promoter, still going strong at 78 with slightly less but still-electric hair on his head, recently put over UFC while saying he's "the people's promoter. Whatever the people want, I'm going to promote". And that means MMA, particularly a league capable of competing with UFC and thus making MMA as a whole more competitive and not UFC then everyone else.

It now appears that anyone who is a Thiago or facing Jon Fitch at UFC 107 is cursed. First Fitch's original opponent, Ricardo Almeida, was forced off due to injury and now word is that the replacement, Thiago Alves, is now off too. There are unconifirmed reports Alves has a torn PCL. Alves was to have faced Paulo Thiago initially before Almeida's withdrawal broke up the fight of the Thiagos. No word yet on a potential replacement to face Fitch.

Paul Kelly on Siver: "I'll break his jaw or submit him - whatever gets me the bonus!"
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Paul Kelly says he is feeling better than ever ahead of his UFC 105 clash with German lightweight Denis Siver. A former welterweight, Kelly is two fights and two wins into a new life at 155lbs and says the move was definitely the right one. “I feel great at this weight now. The first cut was kind of difficult but its easier each time and my weight is well on track now, just over two weeks from the fight. I feel really sharp and really strong, I am hitting the weights again, which I didn’t do for my last fight and I can feel the difference.”

Dana has "proposal" for Liddell, "disgusted" with Rampage
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Dana White says he is “putting together a proposal” for former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell, who recently finished a run on popular television show Dancing With the Stars and is now apparently itching for a return to action. In a recent interview with Sportsnet, UFC president White was asked if a match between Chuck Liddell and Mark Coleman is on his mind, pitting as it would two veterans of the sport against each other.Dana “I’ve never even thought about Liddell-Coleman. I am more focused right now on what to do with Liddell,” replied White, who has repeatedly stated that he does not want Liddell to return to fighting, given his recent loss of form and run of stoppage losses.

Denis Kang: "I am looking to make a major statement"
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Denis Kang believes his forthcoming match with Michael Bisping at UFC 105 “is probably the biggest fight of my career” and “one which will put me on the map in the UFC”. With just over two weeks to go until the fight, Kang is focused on the potential fruits of victory. “I am in good place, mentally and physically. I am ready. This is the right fight at the right time for me. “This is one of the biggest fights on a UFC card and being in Bisping’s hometown in England where he is very popular there will be a lot of attention on it. I’ve fought in PRIDE FC tournaments, but UFC in my view is bigger than PRIDE was and this is a major fight on the card,” he says.

Vitor : I don’t have this ambition of fighting him (Anderson) now, I didn’t get in UFC looking for it, to take his belt
(tatame.com.br)
This thing of fighting Anderson is something that I’ve never looked for. I care about him a lot, but started that thing of Dana White talks... I don’t care about fighting for the title, I want to do some more fights. I don’t have this ambition of fighting him (Anderson) now, I didn’t get in UFC looking for it, to take his belt… I never had that thing, I just want to do my work. I know I deserve, that’s not the problem, neither the discussion, I just like to make some fights. The belt’s moment is gonna come, there are people that want to talk that I don’t deserve, but I don’t believe that. Anderson is not a guy that I want to fight, I support him a lot, we already trained together, I like him a lot. It’s not a thing that I want to... If the belt were on Nate Marquardt’s hands, if I could choose, I wouldn’t fight with Anderson because I care about him.

Happy with win, Stevenson wants holiday break
(mmaweekly.com)
Heading into UFC 104, Joe Stevenson was taken back a little bit when he heard the news that Spencer Fisher had walked into UFC president Dana White's office and specifically asked to face the former "Ultimate Fighter" champion. Stevenson was definitely up for the challenge, though. He bludgeoned his way to a second round TKO victory after getting Fisher caught in a crucifix, and hammered him with elbows to force the stoppage.

UFC 104 bonus baron Pat Barry undergoing surgery, out at least two months
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC heavyweight Pat Barry today will undergo surgery to insert a pin in his thumb near the wrist that will keep him out of action for at least two months. The fighter, who won $120,000 after winning Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night honors at this past weekend's UFC 104 event, today discussed the surgery with MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) – just minutes before he was slated to enter the operating room. "I'm sitting in a hospital robe," he joked. "They really do have your butt stick out exposed. You'd think they would have fixed these things by now."

Lift The Ban Watch: MMA Now Very Close To Legal In Massachusetts
(mmajunkie.com)
In a move that could soon bring the Ultimate Fighting Championship to Boston, Massachusetts state representatives passed a bill earlier this week that calls for the regulation of mixed martial arts. The bill calls for the Massachusetts State Boxing Commission to expand to a general athletic commission and oversee MMA events. It passed 144-10, and because the state senate already approved it the bill just needs the signature of Gov. Deval Patrick.

Ed Soares Manages Bentleys, Not Toyotas
(mmamania.com)
In a recent interview with Yahoo Sports, MMA manager Ed Soares recently compared the "Three Kings"-Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida & Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira-he manages to Bentley & Toyota dealerships in terms of quantity vs. quality. In other words, he feels he's got a garage full of Bentleys. "When you look at the car dealership, well, thank God there are Toyota dealers. There’s nothing wrong with Toyotas. They’re great cars, reliable cars, but there are 3,000 of them on the lot. Walk into a Bentley dealership, though, and there are only 12, 15 cars in the place. There are two things about that: The guy’s walking in to buy the car, and you know they’re not going to be negotiating price when they’re buying a Bentley. And that’s how I feel about our fighters. You want one of our fighters, you’re going to get a high-performance fighter."

The NSAC yesterday released the agenda for it's next tele-meeting scheduled for November 4. 2 items of note on the agenda are Houston Alexander and UFC requesting a February date.
