Lesnar faces stern test in veteran Herring...
(sports.espn.go.com)
When we last saw Brock Lesnar, the former NCAA wrestling champion and WWE alumnus was shaking his head in the Octagon after being submitted by former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir. Lesnar had imposed his bulk on Mir and laid copious punishment on the more technically advanced Mir for about 90 seconds. His fists of fury hammered Mir's face and almost forced a stoppage. Mir kept conscious, though, then lured Lesnar into a trap. As Mir swiveled on his back, Lesnar stood straight up, allowing Mir to get a good look at his exposed legs. The vet snapped on a kneebar. Lesnar couldn't shake off the agony or slide out; he was forced to tap. The end came at 1:30 of the first round.

Lesnar still blames Mazagatti for UFC 81 loss...(w/audio)
(sports.yahoo.com)
The heat is on MMA ref Steve Mazzagatti (pictured w/stache) in this week leading up to UFC 87. The formerly mustacheiod Mazzagatti's competence has been called into question more than few times by media, fans and most importantly Brock Lesnar. Lesnar spoke with ProMMARadio's Larry Pepe and basically called Mazzagatti a clown for his actions early on in the loss to Frank Mir. Lesnar grazed the back of Mir's head with just one punch. Instead of issuing a verbal warning, Mazzagatti stopped the fight with only 25 seconds elapsed and deducted a point from Lesnar. "It's just an consistency in the reffing by that particular referee. Every fight that I ever watch him ref there's a lot of inconsistency. I'm not naming any names."

Heath Herring won’t hesitate to take out Brock Lesnar
(mmajunkie.com)
MINNEAPOLIS – Heath Herring chuckled at the mention of what undoubtedly is the biggest mistake of his professional life. For the last 13 months, rarely has a day gone by where someone hasn't asked the fighter known as "The Texas Crazy Horse" about the events of UFC 73. A career-defining and, perhaps, career-changing victory was in his grasp and he hesitated. He looked at a fallen Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and hesitated. Herring didn't pounce on Nogueira and finish him after a kick to the head nearly knocked Nogueira out.

More on Fedor Emelianenko's hand injury
(mmajunkie.com)
Soon after Affliction's debut event in July and Fedor Emelianenko's quick main-event victory over Tim Sylvia, the California State Athletic Commission confirmed that the Russian fighter had been issued a 180-day medical suspension due to a right-hand injury. The injury will keep Emelianenko from making a scheduled return at Affliction's Oct. 11 show. On this week's edition of "Inside MMA," which airs tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET on HDNet, Bas Rutten discusses why he thinks Emelianenko is so susceptible to hand injuries. And thanks to you partnership with the weekly MMA news show, we now have an exclusive preview clip of that conversation. "It's the way he hits," Rutten said. "It's a little awkward. It's not an overhand. It's a really crazy punch, and he connects with it. That's the whole problem, once you connect with a crazy punch."

THE ART OF WAR AS STRATEGIZED BY ST PIERRE
(mmaweekly.com)
“The clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him.” - Sun Tzu, “The Art of War” Current UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre may not have studied the famous text by Chinese General Sun Tzu, but he certainly employs his strategies in all of his fights. Whether it was out wrestling Josh Koscheck, putting a ground clinic together against Matt Serra, or simply overpowering Matt Hughes, St. Pierre has taken the best weapon away from each of his opponents and made it his own strength. Now St. Pierre faces his toughest challenge to date at UFC 87 when he faces top contender Jon Fitch, who is an extremely well rounded and dangerous fighter in all parts of his game. Despite the odds making him a huge favorite, St. Pierre isn’t looking past Fitch at all. “A lot of people make me try to see through Jon Fitch and I don’t want that. I made a mistake once, I don’t want to do it again,” said St. Pierre alluding to his loss to Matt Serra. “Jon Fitch is probably the most dangerous guy I’ve fought so far, he’s a new breed of mixed martial arts fighter. Very well rounded.”

PENN MOVING TO 170 REGARDLESS OF UFC 87 OUTCOMES
(mmaweekly.com)
"I don't think he'll get the winner of Fitch and GSP, said the UFC president. "He wants to fight GSP if GSP wins the title. GSP has a win over him. He wants to try to beat GSP. I don't think he'd move up if Fitch won." Penn disagrees, commenting, "I'd feel okay facing anyone for the welterweight title." "Jon Fitch is a great opponent, a tough opponent, but St. Pierre brings the whole backing of Canada with him to a fight," stated Penn. "Fan base, this sport, it's entertainment. It would be great to put on a big fight with me and St-Pierre, but then again, it’s about me fighting the best fighter and if Fitch goes down and proves he’s the best fighter, then he’s the man.”

Brock Lesnar: "I strive to be the best"
(mmaweekly.com)
There has been a lot of speculation that this fight is do-or-die for Lesnar. He believes that he needs a win here to keep himself afloat in the UFC. “For me, I've lost my debut fight and like I said, I'm a sore loser. I don't want to lose. It's going to be gangbusters on Aug. 9 to win. Look at anybody. You don't see anybody hanging around in the UFC with a losing record,” said Lesnar. However, win or lose, he doesn’t plan on quitting anytime soon. “This is my job. I'm here. As long as I'm winning and as long as I'll be a contender in the heavyweights, I'll be around for a while.” The one thing that defines who Brock Lesnar is as a person is his perseverance and his desire to excel at any task. He believes that is why he is the athlete that he is today and why he can set lofty goals for himself. “I strive to be the best at whatever I do. That has never changed. My plan is to one day hold the UFC heavyweight belt. I haven't changed my mind at all.”
