Anderson Silva vs Roy Jones Jr. practically a done deal
UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva seems to be merely biding his time until the completion of his UFC contract to finally test himself in the world of professional boxing. “The Spider” first mentioned his interest in the sweet science after he dispatched of Dan Henderson at UFC 82: “Pride of a Champion” in March 2008. And there is perhaps no boxer who has accomplished more in the sport in the past decade and a half than Jones Jr., although he could be considered past his prime despite winning four of his last five bouts. Is Anderson getting too big for his britches? Or does he have the stuff to hang with the boxing legend?

UFC Quick Quote: Bobby Lashley wants to prove he belongs in the UFC
I’ve had dialogue with (the UFC) over the past few days. They know where my mind frame is. I hold the UFC in high regard and I believe the UFC is a place where you have to be at a certain level before you get there. I want to be a serious contender for a title before I go in there. When I get to the UFC, I want people to say ‘Bobby is good enough to go for the title.’ I would like to be holding a 5-0 or 6-0 record, somewhere around there before going into the UFC. If I can take what I do in practice and put that into a match — then you’ll see a whole different Bobby than what you saw the other day. -Fresh off his unanimous decision victory over Jason Guida at “March Badness,” former WWE superstar and decorated amateur wrestler Bobby Lashley tells host Larry Pepe on MMAmania.com’s exclusive presentation of Pro MMA Radio that his ultimate goal is to be a major player in the UFC — but understands that he must first become a reputable fighter prior to a potential debut. Lashley (2-0) looked a bit green against Guida last Saturday night in only the second MMA match of his career, but vows to improve and work his way to the top.

Anderson Still plans to face Roy Jones Jr.
PDL – It looks like your dreamed-of bout with boxer Roy Jones, which would mark your retirement, may really happen. Is that true? AS – After my contract with the UFC ends and end my career in MMA, I intend to have a boxing match with Roy Jones. That’s something that’s already been arranged, it’s all practically a done deal. Now I just have to wait and see.

Newest UFC Banned Sponsor: Full Tilt Poker
You Gotta Know When To Hold 'Em, Know When To Fold 'Em...UFC apparently does. Word is coming out that sponsor Full Tilt Poker, one of the top online poker sites, is the latest UFC sponsor to be blacklisted by the promotion. No specific reason given yet but rumors are it's because of UFC entering into a similar sponsor deal with fellow online poker site UltimateBet, which partners with the Absolute Poker site. There are also rumors Spike TV had something to do with it.

WEC's Danillo Villefort heading to the UFC's welterweight division
According to Davis, Villefort, who had already dropped from middleweight to welterweight for his WEC debut, wasn't interested in dropping from 170 to 155 pounds to stay in the WEC, which recently eliminated its 205-, 185- and 170-pound divisions. Villefort would have needed to drop to lightweight to stay in the organization.
