Former UFC Middleweight Terry Martin Leaves MMA for Boxing
(bloodyelbow.com)
For now, at least, he's trying his hand at something new:

.Martin, who's from Chicago, has given up his UFC dream for now and will step in the ring as a boxer for the first time Friday night as part of an ``8 Count Productions'' card. Martin will face Ricardo Upchurch at the Odeum Sports and Expo Center in Villa Park in a scheduled four-rounder. He'll fight at the 190-pound cruiserweight level, which should alleviate a problem he had making 185 pounds with the UFC.

- ST. PIERRE FOCUSED ON SERRA, OPEN TO SILVA
(mmaweekly.com)
Make no mistake about it Georges St. Pierre is currently focused on reclaiming the Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight title he lost at the hands of Matt Serra. He will get his chance, in front of his hometown crowd in Montreal, on April 19 when the two meet in the main event of UFC 83. “I do a lot of imagery. I have seen these things before and when I walk into the Octagon on April 19 it seems to me it won’t be the first time that it has happened because I have been through the scenario before,” said St. Pierre on Thursday’s pre-fight conference call.

Randy Couture: "It's Going To Be Interesting To See How Emelianenko Deals With Him!"
(fighthype.com)
“… we’ll see what happens. I think it’s going to be an interesting fight. Fedor just fought a pretty tall opponent in Hong Man Choi, so obviously he’s been in that mode of dealing with a guy that size, but I think Tim is a little more seasoned fighter than Hong Man has proved to be. But Hong Man wasn’t easy so it will be interesting to see how Emelianenko deals with him and a pretty good indicator for me, having just fought Tim this last year, as to where I stand and how things might go if I finally get the chance to fight Fedor.”

Eddie Alvarez vs. Joachim ‘Hellboy’ Hansen DREAM fight set for May 11
(mmamania.com)
About three weeks ago, EliteXC lent out its up and coming lightweight star, Eddie Alvarez, to the Japanese promotion DREAM so he could compete in a 16-man lightweight grand prix tournament. EliteXC allows most of their fighters to compete outside their organization, probably because more exposure can’t be a bad thing for any fighter. So Eddie was shipped overseas to represent the promotion in a tournament that they knew a lot of people would be watching … or at least paying attention to. Alvarez did not disappoint, stopping Andre “Dida” Amade in the first round with strikes. The fight was not only impressive for Eddie because of the level of competition, but he was fighting a long way from home, really on the big stage for the first time in his career, and he dominated. That left five possible candidates for a round two opponent: Tatsuya Kawajiri, Joachim Hansen, Katsuhiko Nagata, Luiz Firmino or Mitsuhiro Ishida. All very good fighters and any one of which would provide a solid fight and test for Alvarez. It was recently announced it would be “Hellboy” Hansen and the fight would take place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on May 11.

- FEDOR VS. SYLVIA MAY HAPPEN IN JULY, NOT SIGNED
(mmaweekly.com)
A proposed fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Tim Sylvia has been agreed to… at least in theory. Emelianenko confirmed the July 19 fight to Sherdog.com on Tuesday, saying that he was looking forward to fighting Sylvia. Sources close to Sylvia’s camp said that the bout has yet to be signed, but indicated that the former UFC champion is committed to making the fight happen and has verbally agreed it. From the sounds of this article, it doesn't look like this fight is nearly the done deal, that I thought it was. I hope it does happen and likely it will, but this to me raises some doubts of it happening.
