New Barnett Article (Decent read)
New Josh Barnett write about leading to Affliction. Pretty good read.. http://www.mmatraining.com/featured/josh-barnett-ready-to-greet-rizzo-and-american-fans-again/ My only issue is - they say he will probably be Fedor's toughest test if they ever do fight.. Tougher than Randy? Tougher than Arlovski? Not sure I agree on that one..

Brandon Vera: Dan Henderson, Wanderlei Silva and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou turned down UFC Fight Night 14 offers
(mmamania.com)
“They offered me Dan Henderson, Wanderlei Silva, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Lyoto Machida and then Reese Andy. I turned down Machida. He’s not someone you take on short notice. You gotta get ready for Machida. The other fighters turned down the other fights so that’s how we came to Reese.” Heavyweight-turned light heavyweight, Brandon Vera, reveals a personal behind the scenes take on what went down in the scramble to put together UFC Fight Night 14: “Silva vs. Irvin” on short notice to counter the Affliction “Banned” show that same evening (July 19). It appears that there were a lot of names and potential match ups swirling; however, not everyone was comfortable competing with little time to prepare. James Irvin — who takes on Anderson Silva in the main event — recently told MMAmania.com that four fighters turned down offers to take on “Spider” before he was approached.

Frankie Edgar talks cutting weight, staying at 155 lbs.
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
There has been plenty of talk since Frankie Edgar’s loss to Gray Maynard at UFC Fight Night 13 that Edgar may be too small for 155 lbs. When we interviewed Edgar after that bout he said that he intended on staying at 155 and was looking to actually put on some weight to make him a little bit stronger and give him more size. Edgar has been blogging for USA Today leading up to his fight against Hermes Franca at UFC 87 on August 9 and he’s sticking to that plan according to his latest entry:

Baroni Wins WW Debut, Gets Headbutted by A**hole
(cagepotato.com)
Phil Baroni’s first match as a welterweight was a resounding success, as the New York Badass dominated Scott Jansen to a first-round knockout victory at Cage Rage 27 last night in London. Unexpectedly, Baroni quickly got the fight to the ground, scoring a smooth double-leg takedown shortly after the bell and effortlessly controlling Jansen from the top. Sick sick knockout one of the best of the year.

Dale Hartt Is Ready To Entertain You
(mmajunkie.com)
Is Dale Hartt (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) the future of MMA? Hartt will not bring an impressive amateur wrestling resume to his bout with Shannon Gugerty at UFC Fight Night 14 this Saturday night. There will be no discussion of Hartt's Brazilian jiu-jitsu world titles -- no talk of any highlight-reel knockouts in Muay-Thai. Yet the 29-year-old Hartt told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he has been focused on MMA since its beginning. "I watched the first UFC, and ever since then all I've wanted to do is mixed martial arts," Hartt said. "I trained in Florida before I started training in Bangor, (Maine), with Marcus (Davis). I did Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and I did Muay-Thai. I wrestled a little bit. But everything I did, I did because I wanted to fight MMA. I never wanted to be a jiu-jitsu guy. I never wanted to be a Muay-Thai guy. I always wanted to be an MMA guy."

Sam Stout vs Terry Etim UFC 89 fight on the horizon
(mmamania.com)
Sam Stout (13-4-1) and Terry Etim (10-2) will likely throw leather in a lightweight scrap at UFC 89: “Leben vs. Bisping” at The National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham, England, on October 18. Shawn Tompkins — who is Stout’s striking coach at XTreme Couture and just so happens to date his sister — revealed the potential 155-pound match up in a recent interview with FCFighter.com. Here’s a snip from Tompkins: “Sam Stout just re-signed with the UFC. They gave him another four fight deal, and it looks like he’ll be fighting October 18th in the London, England show against Terry Etim, who just fought Rich Clementi. They were going to try to make that fight happen (with Taylor) but I think Taylor decided he can’t make the 155 division so he’s going to stay at 170. Were itching to get Sam back in there, he’s pretty much had the whole summer off.” “Hands of Stone” dropped a controversial split decision to Rich Clementi his last time out at UFC 83: “Serra vs St. Pierre 2? in front of his hometown Canada crowd. Prior to that showing, Stout bounced back from a “Fight of the Year” candidate bout in which he lost a unanimous decision to Spencer Fisher to outpoint Per Eklund on all three judges scorecards at UFC 80: “Rapid Fire” earlier this year.

Vitor Belfort Ready For 185 Debut At Affliction
(mmaweekly.com)
When you think of legends in mixed martial arts, names like Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Randy Couture, Wanderlei Silva, Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz are commonplace. However, it’s hard to make a list like that without including the name Vitor Belfort. Belfort made his debut at UFC 12 where he defeated Tra Telligman and Scott Ferrozzo. He was only 20 years old at the time. He had extremely fast and accurate hands and soon became one of the most feared strikers in the Octagon. His 44-second win over Wanderlei Silva remains as one of the most exciting knockouts in the history of MMA.

Anthony Johnson ‘Ready to Rumble’ with Kevin Burns
(mmafighting.com)
There are a lot of up and coming MMA fighters out there with solid records. Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and his 5-1 record with three (T)KO’s is one of them. Thus, if you were going on just that then he might get lost in the shuffle with every other fighter that has put up good numbers to start their career. But if you saw Johnson in his last bout against former TUF 6 finalist Tom Speer then you know that he is anything but just another in a long list of up and coming fighters to watch.
