UFC Looking at Entering the Magazine Market?
As MMA has seen an explosion in popularity one of the market segments that has been lifted with this tide has been the MMA magazine industry. The magazine publishing field as a whole is seeing a general weeding out of titles (once popular titles like Blender are being shuttered), MMA-specific titles like Fight! Magazine are reaching new sales heights, while other titles like Fighters Only are expanding into the US and new titles like MMA Cage are being planned and launched. With the newsstands bulging with MMA material, the 800lb gorilla may be making their move to enter the market.

Paulo Filho Declines Offer To Join Chute Box
Paulo Filho says he turned down a recent invitation to train with Chute Boxe because he is a "pure" jiu jitsu fighter. The former WEC middleweight champion was invited to join Chute Boxe by the team's founder Rudimar Fedrigo. “I feel myself flattered because the Chute Boxe school is very sturdy and has produced athletes like Wanderlei, Anderson Silva, Mauricio Shogun, Murilo Ninja and Rafael Cordeiro among others, so what can I say about a man like [Fedrigo]?" said Filho.

IT IS ALL OVER ... Chuck Liddell Retires!!
DANA WHITE has confirmed Chuck Liddell will never fight in the UFC again. The former light heavyweight champion suffered his fourth loss in five fights against Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua at UFC 97. That defeat followed hot on the heels of his brutal UFC 88 knockout loss to Rashad Evans, and UFC president White insists The Iceman’s Octagon career is now over. l

Robbie Lawler Will Let His Fists Do The Talking
Never being known as a trash talker is just the reputation that former EliteXC middleweight champion Robbie Lawler looks to have when getting ready for a fight. He simply lets his fists and feet do the talking for him come fight time. Much like his match-up in ICON against Frank Trigg when his opponent had a few words for him before the fight, Lawler answered back by winning the fight emphatically with a vicious knockout.

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]."

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.
