UFC Champs Healing,Plan Early 2010 Returns
(mmaweekly.com)
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is going to be without the services of two of its champions for the next few events, but when middleweight champ Anderson Silva and light heavyweight titleholder Lyoto Machida do run return, expect them to be even better versions of the athletes they already are. Both were due for a little maintenance after several years of fighting and headed into the shop for a tune-up after their most recent bouts. Silva had surgery on his elbow early in October, while Machida had a cleanout performed on his hand this past Friday. Neither was suffering from a major injury, merely the normal wear and tear that occurs over a combined 45 bouts.

The MMA Bad Boy: Charles Bennett wants you to meet a kinder, gengtler "Kid Kaos"
(mmajunkie.com)
There was a lot of noise in the background. "What was the question?" said Charles Bennett, the man better know in the mixed-martial-arts world as Krazy Horse, even though he would now prefer to be known as Kid Kaos. Bennett was getting his hair done. He was in Oklahoma to attend his roommate's fight, and he wanted to make sure that he continued what he considers his new image – cleaner (or, as he put it, "cuter, funnier, funner") and a role model for younger fighters and kids. So, he can't have his hair being crazy. He got it braided, nice and neat. Like he wants to be now. The question was on that line, kind of. After all that he's been through – the drug sales, arrests, move to MMA, theatrics, back flips, crazy hair, gold teeth – what does he think about his future in MMA? He is, after all, a 10-year veteran now at 30 years old.

Corey Hill making the comeback
(mmaweekly.com)
Corey Hill thinks of Dec. 10, 2008 every day. The 31-year-old lightweight won the first round of his fight with Dale Hartt at UFC’s “Fight for the Troops” and was just getting started in the second when Hartt kicked him in the leg. Hill did what he usually did back then, which was to answer force with force. He threw a counter leg kick, something to remind Hartt there would be no free throws against him. When the five-foot-10-inch Hartt checked the right leg of six-foot-four-inch Hill with his left shin, the impact shattered Hill’s tibia and fibula.

Good Things To Come For Ryan Bader
(mmajunkie.com)
Undefeated UFC light heavyweight Ryan Bader (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) continues to improve with each performance in the octagon, and his UFC 104 win over Eric Schafer (11-4-2 MMA, 3-3 UFC) was no exception. But while "The Ultimate Fighter 8" winner's wrestling prowess and physical tools are an obvious asset, Bader recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) his mind may finally be catching up with his body. "I felt this time I got in there, and I was relaxed," Bader said. "I think it's a good sign if I continue to do that in my next fight. I think this fight allowed me to turn a corner in my career." If Bader was feeling nervous before his previous wins over Carmelo Marrero or Vinny Magalhaes, it hardly showed. But the Arizona Combat Sports product said there was a definite difference in his mental state during his most recent contest.

Lyoto Machida undergoes surgery
(mmajunkie.com)
"He had surgery yesterday on his left hand," Soares said. "The doctor said it was a complete success." Soares said the procedure actually addressed a set of lingering issues rather than repairing something that occurred during Machida and Rua's hotly contested Oct. 24 bout in the main event of "UFC 104: Machida vs. Shogun." "Lyoto's hand has been actually injured for a while," Soares said. "Before the fight with 'Shogun,' he went to the doctor, and he went to a special surgeon in Brazil. Basically, they say said that he was going to need surgery, but he didn't want to cancel the fight. "He just roughed it through this training camp. The hand has been bothering him for quite a while now. It was one of those situations. He just roughed through it." While sharing the details of the surgery, Soares said it was important to note he was not trying to suggest Machida's hand issues in any way played a role in what many felt was a lackluster performance from the champ.
