Matt Hughes Gives His Thoughts On Randy Couture
The following is a post from Matt Hughes on his official website www.matt-hughes.com: My Thoughts on Randy Couture. October 29th, 2007 Well I’ve been tapering off of farm work and training more and more now that the fight’s getting closer, but I know you all have been waiting to hear my thoughts on Randy leaving the UFC, so here we go. I don’t know exactly what is going through Randy’s head, I haven’t talked to him, nor have I talked to Dana White about this situation. However, I somewhat agree with Randy. A couple of years ago, the UFC was a much smaller organization and I knew everybody that worked for them. When I wanted something, I knew who to call and who would get it done. I miss that ...

Sean Sherk’s Future Decided This Week
In just two days, Sean Sherk’s future (and the future of the UFC’s lightweight division) will be decided by the California State Athletic Commission. In my column this week for the Dayton Daily News, I took a quick look at the situation and discussed some of the ramifications that could result from the CSAC’s verdict. I Forgot To Add A Poll. Do You Think Sherk Used Steroids?
Dan Henderson Might Fight at UFC 79
Dan Henderson, who most recently lost a unanimous decision to UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson in September, may return to the octagon Dec. 29 at UFC 79. The news come from Bubba The Love Sponge, who recently spoke to Henderson in Las Vegas. The Sirius Satellite Radio host mentioned the encounter during today’s episode of his show, and the news also appeared on the show’s official website, BTLS.com. (MMAjunkie.com is a content-partner site of BTLS.com.) According to Bubba, Henderson wouldn’t name his possible opponent but did mention that he may be dropping to 185 pounds for the fight. That’s actually news itself. In a post-UFC 77 press conference earlier this month, UFC President Dana White said he wants Henderson to drop to middleweight but that the fighter seemed opposed to the idea. Henderson has one fight remaining on his current contract, which was acquired when the UFC’s owners purchased PRIDE earlier this year (though not all of the fighters’ contracts were transferable). Although Henderson recently stated he was unhappy with the UFC’s initial offer, he said he was optimistic a deal would be reached. A new deal would likely need to be in place before the UFC would officially book Henderson for his next fight. UFC 79 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and features a main event between UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra and former champ Matt Hughes.

New Era Files HUGE Lawsuit Against CSAC
Literally...New Era Fighting has filed a lawsuit against the California State Athletic Commission seeking, among other things, $500 million over various claims and issues dating roughly 10 months back. Almost ludicrous, ridiculous, and so on. Not sure what other adjectives I can add.

Less TUF, more UFN please!
The UFC has two big problems right now, in my opinion. Okay, they’re not really big problems for the UFC, but they’re my two pet peeves: There’s too many times in a year where there’s no new shows for over a month. There’s too many new UFC guys that need developing, and not enough shows to develop them in.
Wanderlei Comments On Return To UFC
Now relocated to the U.S., Silva has started training in Florida as well as at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas to get him ready for his turn to the UFC against Liddell. “I’m training hard, I only fight to win,” Silva stated. “I want to come back to the top and fighting with Chuck now is the best moment for me.” Many have questioned Silva’s stamina in the sport after so many hard fought battles while competing in Pride, but the Brazilian is quick to point out the best is yet to come. “In the next 2 years, I will give you the best of my career,” Silva said. While his focus is now solely based on Chuck Liddell, many fans are quick to notice that Silva has two dominant victories over current UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, but the former Pride champion has his priorities well in line. “For me this is the opportunity to come back to the top. First, I’m going to knock out Chuck and after I want the belt.”
Redemption & Rebirth: Akiyama KOs Kang
Yoshihiro Akiyama completed a long road back to the top with an emphatic KO of top Middleweight Denis Kang at K-1 Olympia HERO's in Korea. The fight was Akiyama's first since his No Contest against Kazushi Sakuraba that left Akiyama disgraced amidst cheating allegations. The KO in front of an emphatic crowd capped off a card loaded with upsets.
Weight cutting is 10% of determining a fight's outcome, according to fighters. Based on their records, Sherdog came up with a list of fighters who might be best served by losing more weight than they are cutting now, or by even piling on more. Most of these we probably agree with, but a couple are still a little surprising to consider.
