Pitbull unafraid of Hughes
(graciemag.com)
Even so, Pitbull is not intimidated, and in a talk with GRACIEMAG.com affirms that he is the perfect adversary to take him to his objective: the belt. “I’m training like mad and I’m really strong with a lot of wind. MMA demands a lot of effort and training to not leave anything to chance. We brought in some wrestlers to train and we’re putting together the right strategy for the fight. To me, experience is what counts. Hughes is already in the UFC Hall of Fame and has only lost to Saint-Pierre. But I’ve been doing this since I was 15 in muay thai and MMA. I can’t be satisfied being just another one, I want to be the best and I’ll only leave dead. They were giving me ever tougher opponents each time and now they send in Matt, but the name doesn’t matter, I’m taking this win for the ATT,” Thiago guaranteed

Joe Lauzon rolls with punches
(bostonherald.com)
“I think I won the first round,” the East Bridgewater native said. “If it was at sea level, I think I would have been able to push that pace for all three rounds, but being in Colorado, I couldn’t do it. I came out for the second round and I felt like my legs weighed 1,000 pounds each. I thought I had a good first round, but cardio killed me and a couple of other things just didn’t go my way.”

As a result, Affliction was not able to finalize an agreement to book the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas for its first show.

TOKYO -- More than 3,900 fans gathered Saturday to celebrate the first card of Shooto's 20th anniversary series at the newly opened JCB Hall, just a stone's throw from the time-honored Korakuen Hall in Japan's Tokyo Dome City complex. While the evening proved to be a rough one for some of Japan's best, it was still an exciting night of fights. Capping off the card was a welterweight showdown between two of Shooto's top 154-pounders in Takashi Nakakura (Pictures) and Ganjo Tentsuku (Pictures), who were vying for the title Tatsuya Kawajiri (Pictures) had recently vacated.

(mmamania.com)
We hinted earlier that Murilo “Ninja” Rua (15-8-1) was rumored to be fighting on the Elite XC event being held in Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 14. It turns out he will indeed be in action that evening, taking on a potential superstar in the making, Tony “The Gun” Bonello (16-0-1). Talk about a Brazilian jiu-jitsu war! This card was in need of some excitement after losing the welterweight title fight between Jake Shields and Drew Fickett. And this fight — despite the relative anonymity of Bonello — is just the what the doctor ordered.

Quarry discusses new camp, Starnes fight, future challenges
(mmajunkie.com)
Earlier this month at UFC 83, Nathan "Rock" Quarry (10-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) used everything from Muay-Thai strikes to a playground taunt en route to earning one of the most lopsided decisions in UFC history. His opponent, "The Ultimate Fighter 3" cast member Kalib Starnes (8-3-1 MMA, 2-3 UFC), has since been released from the UFC, and Quarry is anxious to return to the octagon for an opportunity to again prove himself as a top middleweight contender.

UFC tackles long-term growth issues
(sports.yahoo.com)
he success of the Ultimate Fighting Championship over the past three years has always carried with it one major question: Is this a long-term sport or a short-term fad? After all, when what was essentially an underground sport suddenly becomes popular based largely on a reality show on a cable station, it’s easy to question its longevity. ]

Roger Huerta – Leaving ‘Normal’ Behind

For much of his young life, Roger Huerta just wanted to be normal. He wanted to have two parents sitting around the dinner table at night, a white picket fence around a house with a yard, and the type of stability that could be dubbed by some as boring.

Kalib Starnes Explanation
(sherdog.net)
The former UFC fighter had this to say about his performance at UFC 83 "I will say again what I've said before; I had the game plan of circling and moving to stay out of exchanges and to work off of my jab because he hits so hard, to avoid the clinch because he was very strong and I'd taken knees and elbows there in my previous fight, and to throw some kicks as the fight wore on." i apologize ahead of time if this has already been posted, i didnt have time to look for a previous post

Travis Lutter Wants His Damn Money
(cagepotato.com)
Our friend Ariel at MMARated did an audio interview with Travis Lutter shortly after he was cut by the UFC, and if you’re curious about where “The Serial Killer” goes from here you should give it a listen. Lutter still sounds a little dazed by his layoff — and bitter that he was cut while other two-time-losers like Kendall Grove are still in the mix — but there were some interesting revelations. For example: — After his dismissal, Lutter e-mailed Dana White about the $36,000 that Xyience still owes him. That e-mail has not yet been returned. — When he said that fans of MMA suck, he was specifically referring to the ones that send him hate mail; according to Travis, the only person who deserves that kind of hate mail is Osama Bin Laden. [ed. note: I know, right? If only we had his address!] — Since his firing, he’s been called by the IFL and HDNet/Affliction; he’d love to fight Matt Lindland. — Lutter still doesn’t know why he gassed against Rich Franklin. He also hasn’t watched the fight yet, because he doesn’t feel like it. — He says “y’know” more than maybe anyone else in the world, ever.

WANDERLEI STRENGTH COACH PREPARING FOR JARDINE
(mmaweekly.com)
MMAWeekly’s Ivan Canello recently caught up with Wanderlei Silva’s personal strength and conditioning trainer, Rafael Alejarra. Besides Silva, he has or does also train the likes of Antonio Rodrigo and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Robert Drysdale, an Phil Baroni, among others. Alejarra discussed the recent performance of Jacare at the DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix, where he won his opening round bout, Silva’s upcoming fight with Keith Jardine at UFC 84, training mixed martial artists, and more. MMAWeekly.com: What did you think about the Jacare’s fight in the DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix? Rafael Alejarra: I think Jacare is a complete athlete, even without too much experience in big events. But I am sure that he came to stay. About the fight, everything went exactly how we predicted. Thanks to God, Jacare was strong, explosive and with his technique at a very high level. Because of this, it happened exactly the way we wanted. MMAWeekly: How was the preparation? Was there anything special to this fight since the opponent changed a few days before the fight? Alejarra: No, in fact, we don't train for this or that opponent. We train for any kind of opponent, and we had to be well prepared for all situations possible in one fight. Fortunately, we had a positive result. MMAWeekly: Will Jacare keep the relationship going with you and during Wanderlei’s training? Alejarra: Yes, he’ll go to Brazil to see his girlfriend and soon he will come to Vegas and will join us to start the training again and help Wanderlei for his next fight.
