Exclusive Interview: Lyoto Machida
(cagepotato.com)
After Lyoto Machida scored the biggest win of his undefeated career by out-pointing Tito Ortiz to a unanimous decision at UFC 84, he immediately became the subject of intense debate in the MMA community. While his fans praise his impenetrable defense and technically perfect counter-attacks, there are others who find his stick-and-move style to be boring — or worse, cowardly. Our resident Brazilian Luiz de Souza called Machida at his home base in Belém, Brazil, to get his take on the criticism, and to find out where he thinks he stands in the UFC’s light-heavyweight title picture CagePotato: Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with us today. Do you have any idea who your next opponent will be? There’s been a lot of speculation, but there’s no confirmation of anything yet. But I think it could be Thiago Silva, or even Quinton Jackson. We’ve heard that multiple fighters have turned down fights with you. Why do you think people are trying to avoid you? It’s like I said in other interviews, this is a business, and so many times people don’t want to fight, not because they are scared, but because they want to get to the top quicker. Many times, fighters have better opportunities of getting higher-ranked in other fights, which makes them choose their fights sparingly, not accepting all challenges. It’s not a matter of being scared.

Michael Bisping out for a ’stand up brawl’ with Chris Leben
(mmamania.com)
“I want to go out and show my skills, my last fight hit the ground too much – he (Jason Day) gave me the opportunity to take him down, and he couldn’t handle the ground-and-pound…. Your next fight is always your biggest fight, you’re only as good as your last fight, so yeah this is the biggest fight of my life. I’m not gonna go more cautious because it’s Chris Leben. I’ll do what I normally do, look to stand on the feet and set the pace. It’s the same in every fight, you assess the situation, play it by ear, punches get thrown –- and hopefully we’ll get the stand-up brawl we all want.”

Paul Daley: My Battle With Cage Rage & Pro Elite
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
In an exclusive interview ahead of his fight on Saturday night, Paul Daley revealed to Fighters Only that he has more than just his upcoming bout with Bojan 'Zelva' Kosednar on his mind. "I've got a few things I want to get out in the air with regards to Pro Elite, Cage Rage and the future," he said. "I've got no contract with Cage Rage, my contract stands with Pro Elite. My fight with Cage Warriors seems to be a problem with the guys at Pro Elite." Rival UK promotions Cage Rage and Cage Warriors are going head-to-head on Saturday night, holding events in London and Nottingham respectively. Daley agreed to fight in his home city of Nottingham months ago, citing complete approval from Pro Elite executives when he told them of his plans to fight. Since then, he claims Pro Elite have changed their stance on his headlining bout.

Paul Kelly Vs Marcus Davis At UFC 89
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Wolfslair product Paul Kelly may be fighting Marcus Davis at UFC 89 in October, Fighters Only has been told. Sources close to the fight have indicated that contracts are being drawn up for the fight, although nothing has as yet been signed. Kelly made his UFC debut in January when he fought fellow Briton Paul Taylor on the undercard of UFC 80. The pair won the Fight of the Night bonus for their three-round war, which the UFC screened on the pay-per-view broadcast despite it being originally scheduled as part of the non-televised undercard. SERIOUSLY MARCUS. FIGHT IN A DIFFERENT COUNTRY FOR ONCE!

The Highly Unofficial Half-Year UFC Awards - The Fights
(ufc.com)
"Well, at least the best UFC fight of 2008 thus far was an easy call. The rest of the top five (or in this case, top six) was a little tougher, as there were plenty of action-packed and drama-filled bouts that could have easily fit in among the best of the first-half. Here’s to a second half of 2008 that’s just as exciting."

Tim Sylvia Talks About Fedor, Lesnar & More
(weblogs.baltimoresun.com)
Affliction has put together an incredible card for "Banned," the biggest mixed martial arts event of the year, which is scheduled to take place July 19 in Anaheim, Calif. Headlining the fight is Fedor Emelianenko, the man who has been considered the top fighter in the world for the past few years. He’s going up against one of the best heavyweights in the world, Tim Sylvia. Sylvia recently left the UFC and become one of the few high profile free agents in the sport. I recently caught up with Sylvia to talk about Fedor, MMA judging, Kimbo Slice, the growth of the sport and more.

DENIS KANG OFF OF DREAM 5 FIGHT CARD
American Top Team middleweight standout Denis Kang has been removed from Dream’s July 21 card in Osaka, Japan. Kang told MMAWeekly.com he learned of the change last week. Until that time he had not been given an opponent by Dream’s promoter, Fight Entertainment Group. He’s still in the dark about the reason for his dismissal. “I have no idea,” Kang responded. “I was feeling really good for this fight, I was peaking really well.” His focus will now shift to Korea, where he is scheduled to defend his middleweight title in Korea’s Spirit MC promotion on August 31 against Jae Young Kim, a fighter he has twice defeated previously. After that, details are being ironed out for an appearance in Canada’s Raw Combat promotion against an unnamed opponent. “I’m taking him really seriously,” Kang said of Kim. “I’m taking it like any title fight. It’s the first real belt I won, and it’s very special to me. I’m training hard.” He is currently in Vancouver, working with longtime training partners at the Revolution Fight Team. He also plans on returning to Montreal, where Georges St. Pierre, Patrick Cote, and David Loiseau await him. Visa issues have kept Kang from training full time at American Top Team, but he will return there at some point as well. As for his future with FEG, Kang says this isn’t the end of their relationship. “I want to stay with them, I have no problem with them,” he said. “I don’t know that any organization can be perfect. I understand that’s just the way business goes. You have to remember, FEG is running K-1 and K-1 Max, K-1 Heavyweight and Dream at the same time. So I know they’re busy. It’s just very frustrating.” [L=http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/templates/dailynews.asp?articleid=6666&zoneid=13]Link[/L Edit: i didnt see this posted although i kinda figured he wasnt fighting
