Former UFC fighter Scott Smith (11-4 MMA, 1-3 UFC) has signed a long-term contract with Elite Xtreme Combat, the organization’s parent announced on Wednesday. ProElite Inc. also announced that Smith will make his EliteXC debut in February. Smith is perhaps best known for his stint on a special “comeback” season of “The Ultimate Fighter” and a subsequent knockout at the show’s live finale — which appeared to play a major part in EliteXC’s offer to the fighter.

CNBC Documentary “Ultimate Fighting: From Blood Sport to Big Time” Highlight
(mmajunkie.com)
Embedded to the right is a full and official sneak preview of CNBC’s “Ultimate Fighting: From Blood Sport to Big Time” documentary that premieres tomorrow, December 13 @ 10 pm ET. The original documentary takes “a no-holds barred look at the business behind the nation’s fastest growing sports franchise,” telling the story behind the rise of the Ultimate Fighting Championship as both a business and cultural phenomenon. From the preview video, the program apparently heavily features former UFC middleweight champion Rich “Ace” Franklin. The one hour program is reported by CNBC’s Scott Wapner, and re-airs the same night at 1AM ET in case you can’t make the first showing (or you’re a poor soul still stuck without Tivo). Looks worth checking out for sure.

Joe Lauzon Interview
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
Excerpt: Adam Morgan: Yeah, I saw you had some pictures posted up on The Underground Forum where it said you were at roughly 185 about 48 hours out from the fight. Is that true? Joe Lauzon: That was a big joke. My brother and my roommate Brandon were in the hotel lobby and they heard Reinhardt was getting a little scared, you know, “Joe’s running around at 185! He’s so big!” and all this other stuff. So they started talking like “Oh, I can’t believe Joe’s 185. It’ll be a tough cut but he’ll make it.” So we just sort of ran with it to play on his paranoia a little bit. Too funny
