"Inside MMA" preview: KJ Noons trashes Nick Diaz, refuels heated rivalry
(mmajunkie.com)
During an EliteXC event earlier this month, EliteXC lightweight champ KJ Noons and Nick Diaz won separate bouts. However, when they met in the cage after Noons' victory to hype an upcoming rematch, all hell broke loose. This week as a guest on "Inside MMA," Noons ripped into Diaz, saying -- among other things -- that his rival doesn't deserve a rematch, that people are using the notion of Diaz's scar tissue an an excuse, and that his new nickname should be "The Artist" due to how badly he rearranged Diaz's face in their first fight in late 2007.

Jesse Taylor To Fight on UFC July 19th Fight Card?
(fighthype.com)
"Despite being kicked out of TUF Finale it appears Jesse Taylor is set to make his return to the UFC" Wouldn't let me copy and paste but anyway Take it for what it's worth as I don't know the credibility for this website but a match between CB would be pretty good imo.

Couture: Cheap Shot Broke her Jaw?

Couture: Well, I just walked out there to touch gloves and she just hit me. She wasn't interested in touching gloves and that first shot is what broke my jaw. My left hand wasn't even up to protect myself -- it was straight out to touch her glove. She took her shot, connected it and dropped me. That first shot is what broke it.

The pros and cons of booking Urijah Faber vs. Kid Yamamoto
(mmamemories.com)
Quietly after his dominating win over Jens Pulver in front of 12,000 fans at Arco Arena in Sacramento, Urijah Faber soon found his name being mentioned in the Japanese press. It was no coincidence that K-1 was behind the name-dropping, as Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto (their 145-pound MMA superstar) was claiming that he wanted to fight Faber soon. Japanese promotions, especially K-1, tend to telegraph the messages they send through various media channels. The message here was loud and clear – we want to book the two best 145 pound fighters in the world against each other.

Jorge Gurgel Gets New Coaches, Keeps Same Bad Gameplan

"I needed to be just a student," he says. "I needed somebody to say ‘OK, man, you do nothing but train with me and prepare for a fight.' Matt said, ‘You're going to come to Seattle and I'm going to take care of you.' "I've never had a coach who focused on me. I have a school with 400-500 students. … I'm always working with pro fighters, the guys that we train, and training myself. I've never had a coach to tell me when to stop training, when to train more, when to train this technique, what to do."

Affliction Promises Ad Campaign Real Soon
(bloodyelbow.com)
For those of who've been wondering when Affliction would start promoting their July 19th PPV, MMA Junkie has some comments from Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio: "Right now, we haven't even broken water (on marketing) yet," Atencio said. "We're waiting until the push because we know a lot of people, especially the casual fan, they'll forget about it if we push too soon. ... We've sold about 8,000 tickets so far, and that's with minimal advertising." Talking about the UFC July 19th free event, Atencio also reveals a real big gap in his thought processes: "Anybody that was going to buy our pay-per-view, I think they're still going to buy it," Atencio said. "I think the people that weren't going to buy it, [the UFC event] just gives them something to do now. I don't think it really changed the hardcore fans' outlook."
