White is tired of chasing Fedor
(sports.yahoo.com)
You'd think knockout victories over two former UFC heavyweight champs, would have UFC president Dana White salivating over Fedor Emelianenko. That's not the case according to White who says that he didn't even watch the Affliction 2 fight card and still hasn't seen the Fedor-Andrei Arlovski fight. Even though close to 9,000 paid to get into the Honda Center and the card did a gate of over $1.5 million, White doesn't care: "If Fedor doesn't care than neither do I. If he wants to come over and fight the best in the world then that's cool with me. At the end of the day, if Fedor wants to fight here I'm here, if he doesn't I don't care."

Penn focused on nurturing talent, not wasting it
(sports.yahoo.com)
When B.J. Penn was 20 years old, he could sit on the ground and, without using his hands, reach his foot up and scratch his head behind his ears. Now a graybeard of 30, Penn admits that stunt may be a little bit out of his reach. “I used to do a lot of things with my feet, but now that I’m getting older … ” Penn said, laughing heartily. “I’m pretty flexible. A lot more flexible than everybody else, but I’m not as flexible as I used to be.”

(mmamania.com)
“I’ve been anxious to get back in there. I’m glad it’s finally here. I’m getting kicked in [my knee], grappling with it. It’s fine. It’s holding up…. He [Jon Jones] knows this is a big shot, I know he’s gonna come ready and look to bring it. I’ll be ready for it…. I got a good game plan, I know his strengths and my strengths and how we match up and what I got to do to win.

Thiago Silva: I'll be the last one standing at UFC 94
(mmajunkie.com)
Lyoto Machida (13-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) is elusive, that Thiago Silva (13-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) knows. But while many MMA observers continue to debate whether Machida's defensive style is an impressive display of technical prowess or a prime example of avoiding a fight, Silva has his mind made up. "I know a lot of fans don't like Machida's style because he's always running and winning the fights by decision," Silva recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I don't like it either." The two undefeated Brazilian light-heavyweights will meet Saturday in the co-main event of "UFC 94: St. Pierre vs. Penn II" in Las Vegas. Silva believes the contrast between his aggressive, attacking style and Machida's defensive, elusive gameplan will make for a complete test. "I definitely study my opponents," Silva said. "I'm a complete fighter, and I can adjust to whatever position or situation comes in the fight. I'm the kind of fighter that is always open to learn more. You will see a new Thiago Silva on Saturday night. "But I think this fight is going to be more psychological than physical. I'm ready for that. I trained a lot, and I won't let this fight go to a decision."

UFC Quick Quote: Experience tells Matt Hughes BJ Penn should win at UFC 94
(mmamania.com)
“This weekend is the GSP/BJ rematch, I’ve been doing a lot of interviews on this topic, since I’ve fought both of them (lost to both and beat them both). I think this fight comes down to a lot of things, I think GSP will have a slight wrestling advantage and I think BJ will have a submission advantage. GSP might be a little quicker with his punches; but I believe BJ has more power and has a stronger chin. If BJ shows up in good shape, I think he can get his hand raised at the end. If BJ doesn’t show up in good shape, then he might have some problems.” – Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes share his prediction on the upcoming megafight between champions Georges St. Pierre and BJ Penn via Matt-Hughes.com. As Hughes points out, he has competed against both fighters, splitting the series with Penn and losing the last two to “Rush.” Hughes is set to take on Matt Serra at UFC 98 on May 23. St. Pierre and Penn will collide this Saturday, Jan. 31 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lashley, Lombard scratched from PFC: Best of Both Worlds
(mmajunkie.com)
American Top Team Fighters Bobby Lashley (1-0) and Hector Lombard (17-2-1) have been forced to withdraw from their planned bouts at the Palace Fighting Championship's upcoming hybrid MMA/boxing card, "Best of Both Worlds." MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned of the pair's departures from sources close to the event. "PFC: Best of Both Worlds" is scheduled for Feb. 6 at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, Calif. Lashley was forced off the card due to an ankle ligament injury suffered in a recent training session. The extent of the injury and potential layoff for recovery is unknown at this time. The heavyweight prospect and former collegiate wrestling champion was slated to face fellow undefeated up-and-comer Mike Hayes. Lashley made his MMA debut in December 2008 with a 41-second TKO win over fellow first-time-fighter Joshua Franklin. A replacement for the former professional wrestler has not yet been named. Lombard had long been considered for the event, though his participation was never officially announced by the organization. The former Cuban judoka has been fighting professionally since 2004 and was looking to make his long-awaited U.S. debut. The PRIDE, DEEP and SpiritMC veteran will pass on the Feb. 6 date in favor of a previously signed April appearance for Bellator Fighting Championships, a debuting promotion slated for broadcast on ESPN Deportes.

(mmajunkie.com)
With the recent loss of a scheduled welterweight title fight between champion Carlos Condit and challenger Brock Larson for the main card of "WEC 39: Brown vs. Garcia," a lightweight scrap between Richard Crunkilton (16-2 MMA, 6-1 WEC) and Bart Palszewski (30-11 MMA, 1-0 WEC) is slated for an elevation to co-main event status.

The American Kickboxing Academy fighter has since won seven of his past eight bouts. His lone defeat in that stretch was a September 2007 TKO loss to former WEC lightweight champion Rob McCullough. Palaszweski has been fighting professionally since 2002. The Extreme Challenge and SuperBrawl veteran gained further exposure during an 8-4 run in the now-defunct IFL.

George Sotiropoulos out, debuting Matt Veach in for UFC Fight Night 17
(mmajunkie.com)
A rib injury recently suffered by George Sotiropolous (9-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has opened a door for UFC newcomer Matt Veach (10-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Veach, a member of the Illinois-based HIT Squad, replaces Sotiropoulos in a UFC Fight Night 17 preliminary bout with Matt Grice (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC). A source close to Grice confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). UFC Fight Night 17 takes place Feb. 7 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla., and airs on Spike TV. As of late Wednesday, the UFC had yet to announce the fight-card change. The setback is yet another disappointment for Sotiropoulos, who last fought in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 13 in April 2008. The 31-year-old earned a TKO win over Roman Mitichyan that night, but injuries has kept "The Ultimate Fighter 6" cast member out of action since. His replacement, Veach, enters the UFC with a stellar 10-0 record with nine stoppage victories in just 18 months of professional competition. Fighting in Midwest-based shows, the former high school and collegiate wrestler hosted posted six submission victories and three knockout wins. Grice, meanwhile, will be returning to action for the first time since his October 2007 "Fight of the Night" with Jason Black at UFC 77. Grice put his MMA career on hold for the past year in order to complete training at the Oklahoma City Police Department academy. With that training behind him, the 27-year-old will now renew his commitment to the UFC.
