Chris Horodecki to put past behind while preparing for "Fight Force"
For nine-time IFL veteran Chris Horodecki (12-1), the past year has been a series of unfortunate incidents. His former employer folded. An injury then forced him out of a scheduled bout with Dan Lauzon at January's "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" at the last possible second. But as "The Polish Hammer" now prepares for a June bout with William Sriyapai (12-4) at "Fight Force: Ultimate Chaos" in Biloxi, Miss., the 21-year-old looks to move on from those setbacks.

Strikeforce: "Diesel" confident against Baroni, but Shields ultimate target
Still one month out from his June 6 Strikeforce showdown with Phil Baroni (13-10) in St. Louis, Joe Riggs (29-10) is ready. He's ready for Baroni. He's ready to perform. And he's ready for a chance to shut Jake Shields' (22-4-1) mouth. "I wouldn't be starting this stuff, but as a professional fighter, you get offered to fight someone, you fight them regardless," Riggs recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "Unless you have a legitimate reason you don't want to fight them. Then [Shields] is going to say that I'm beneath him? [Expletive] that mother[expletive]."

Yesterday [Apr. 28] Randy Couture served his wife of over two years, Kim Couture, with divorce papers. The news was a shock to those close to the couple and even more to Kim, who pulled out of her televised main event fight due to the devastating news. This marks Randy's third divorce.

Anderson Silva's UFC title contenders stuck in the middle
The fallout of Anderson Silva's (24-4 MMA, 9-0 UFC) two recent dull middleweight title defenses – with the UFC feeling the need to "challenge" him with Forrest Griffin (16-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC), a former light-heavyweight champion with a reputation for exciting fights – has left a slew of viable challengers spinning their wheels. Right now there are five viable middleweight title contenders, although that number will likely be whittled to three at the end of the summer. With Silva fighting Griffin on Aug. 8, whomever emerges is likely to get a title shot in the fall or winter.

Matt Hughes would ‘love to rematch’ Thiago Alves and GSP
If I beat Serra — and I obviously think I will — and Thiago wins I’d love to get a rematch with Thiago. I think that fight could have gone differently if my knee hadn’t gone out, so I’d love to rematch Thiago. To be honest, I didn’t like the way the last GSP fight went either, so I’d love to rematch GSP. But all I’m worrying about right now is Matt Serra. So where ever winning that fight puts me is fine, but I’ve just got Matt Serra on my mind right now.

What Would UFC Weekly Events Look Like?
When the UFC renewed its deal with Spike, they mentioned the possibility of live, weekly programming starting in 2010 or 2011. Nobody at the UFC really knows what will replace TUF, but a weekly show with live fights is the most likely answer. There are a lot of obstacles to it, but Robert Joyner says there have been discussions about it lately between the UFC and Spike TV.

Up For TUF10, Rex Richards Has Business First
Could 2009 be the year of Rex Richards? It could be if he has anything to say about. The former professional football player for the National Football League's Indianapolis Colts and the Arena Football League's San Jose Sabercats has long had a keen interest in mixed martial arts. "I was watching the first UFC's when there was no gloves and no rules and I was like, 'Wow! This is what I want to do,'" he recalls. "But there wasn't really an outlet to do it successfully and make a career out of it." Richards has trained in all facets of the fight game ever since, including during his tenure as a professional football player.

Lil’ Nog: Stop lying! Affliction is here to stay…
“A promotion that has Golden Boy promoter Oscar De La Hoya as an associate, and that might be making ties with HBO television, it is far from collapsing. Affliction has one of the richest men in the world and with a super cable network like HBO, it won’t finish. That’s a lie. The event will still last a long time.”

UFC Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights.
MMA fans can now cast their vote for the top 100 UFC fights of all time. In July Spike TV debuts a five-part series entitled " UFC's Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights" prior to UFC 100, which is the organization's historic event that takes place July 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The top 100 fights will be determined by a fan vote at http://www.spike.com/ufc-100/ They are missing a lot of fights though. From UFC 1 to 15 they only have like 3 fights, that weren't that great. Of course I rated GSP/Penn 2 my highest. :P

SF Fighter Fails Drug Test For 3rd Time
If the CSAC has a "3 Strikes, You're Out" policy on failed drug tests by fighters, we're about to find out-and see it in action. Jeremy Tavares, who last fought at the 4/11 Strikeforce event, has failed a post-fight drug test, getting busted for marijuana. He was the only fighter who had a positive test on the card. This is the 3rd time he's failed such a test in only 4 pro fights, and at a 6/22 hearing the CSAC will recommend his license be revoked.

It has been a crazy day for AMA Fight Club fighter Dan Miller, who lost his original opponent for UFC 98, Yushin Okami, to a knee injury. He was then expected to face Team Quest member Ed Herman. Now it appears Herman has been pulled from the spot, and will be replaced by teammate Chael Sonnen for the May 23 middleweight bout.
