Anthony Perosh: 'I'm going to try and take Cro Cop down and choke him out'
I actually said ‘no’ (to replacing Ben Rothwell) originally. I look up to Cro Cop and he’s a fellow Croatian. My parents are Croatian and I’ve actually been training the other Croatians appearing on this UFC 110 card. I then went and watched yesterday’s (Thursday) press conference and listened to the comment Dana White made about how many fighters actually turn down opportunities.

Trainer Talks Nick Diaz's Marijuana Use
“People who don’t like Nick Diaz, that doesn’t make sense to me because here’s a guy who has never put a syringe in his (expletive) in his life. He’s a clean fighter. That’s the way it is,” said Gracie. “He wants to smoke a little weed every once in a while. Who am I to say what a grown man can do? That’s my take on it.”

Anthony Johnson Isn't Dumb Enough To Fight John Howard With A Bum Knee
And it's a lingering injury at that, as in 18 months. "It's my meniscus again. It's been torn for a year and a half now. I ain't dumb enough to fight this guy injured, especially after so much trash talking between me and him. He's a tough fighter and I guarantee his leg kick would have done more damage to my knee. That would be dumb to go in there and I'm smarter than that. I'm not ducking this guy. I promise you we're gonna fight no matter what. We will fight. Can I say when? No, but when my knee is fixed and 100 percent, oh hell yeah." That might not be until the later part of this year though.

Fight Path: Olympic hopeful and UFC newcomer Mario Miranda a natural at MMA
In leaving behind his home, family and fitness gym owned by his aunt where he trained in jiu jitsu throughout his youth, Miranda moved to Boston. There was no special reason, really, just a relative who lived there and an opportunity to try something new.

Changes to UFC 110 Card
This sucks.

Australian veteran Anthony Perosh will step in to face Mirko Cro Cop.

Dana White Details Selection of Anderson Silva's UFC 112 Opponent
In the wake of Vitor Belfort's shoulder injury, UFC President Dana White and matchmaker Joe Silva were left with a decision regarding the status of middleweight champion Anderson Silva. They could pull him off the UFC 112 card, move him up to fight a non-title light-heavyweight bout or find another contender to replace Belfort. White and Silva chose option three. During Thursday's UFC press conference, White detailed the thought-process behind choosing Demian Maia to oppose the champ. The decision essentially came down to a few names: Chael Sonnen, Maia, Michael Bisping or Wanderlei Silva.

Michael Bisping has a message for whiny Yanks: Stop crying and 'get over it'
"I always hear the same comments all the time, ‘He is an arrogant so and so’, the truth is I’m not, I think I’m very humble and I’ve got a long way to go.’ I train very hard, I do my best and I’m trying to support my family. They’re always going on about how bad I was on the Ultimate Fighter, I for the life of me can’t see what I did wrong, I was just trying to help my team win. Yes there was a bit of fun and banter back and forth, but it was just a pisstake. Bloody hell, get over it."

Nogueira: “The fans can expect two wins”
When Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira and Wanderlei Silva steps up in the ring in the same night, you can expect the same result. After more than 10 years of career, both fought 12 times in the tame night, and the result was always the same: when Nogueira won, Silva also won.
