Taktarov kneebar's his way to a succesful return in Russia
(mmaweekly.com)
After alost ten years away from the sport, it's understandable that fans where sceptic of the Russian Bear's return to MMA, but he did not dissapoint. Oleg wins in his return bout with yet another kneebar. This former UFC champion is hailed by most as one of the greatest and toughest fighters from the first generation of fighters, and although a Couture-like career is unlikely, the return of Oleg Taktarov is welcomed by all. ps. Oleg recently had a boxing match with none other that Dolph Lungrend.

CBS, NBC Could Soon Televise MMA
(mmajunkie.com)
CBS and NBC are talking with mixed martial arts promotions about becoming the first major broadcast network to televise the sport. Nothing is official, but television and MMA insiders expect a deal between CBS and the Ultimate Fighting Championship to be announced shortly. UFC president Dana White said he didn’t want to discuss a deal that is still being negotiated, but White did say that UFC 80 on Jan. 19 would be a pay-per-view event. It had been rumored that would be the first CBS show if a deal was reached. MMA insiders believe CBS is looking at a Saturday night prime-time slot. CBS averaged a 4.5 rating in prime time on Nov. 24, a number no UFC event has approached. However, major UFC events such as Ken Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz in 2006 and this year’s Dan Henderson vs. Quinton Jackson Pride vs. UFC title unification match have beaten all network programming in the highly sought 18-34 male demographic despite airing on basic cable’s Spike TV.

Jason MacDonald: I’m Fighting in April — in Canada (UFC 83)
(mmajunkie.com)
The UFC’s long-awaited debut north of the American border will take place in April — in Canada — with Canadian fighter Jason MacDonald on the card. That’s the word from MacDonald, anyway. Last week MacDonald told fans, including some MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) veterans, at a Maximum Fighting Championships event in Edmonton that he was going to fight on an upcoming April UFC card in Canada.

Karo Parisyan: ‘I think I already have a title shot if I want to wait’
(mmamania.com)
Welterweight contender Karo Parisyan has apparently earned a title shot in six or seven months if he wants to wait, according to a recent interview on PunchDrunkGamer.com. “People are talking about that [a fight with Jon Fitch], I don’t know. The deal is I think I already have a title shot if I want to wait. If I wait I can get my title shot I guess in six or seven months from now, which is a long time away, and I don’t want to mess up my plans of getting my title shot. Now I would love to fight Jon Fitch, but if I fight him and god forbid something goes wrong and I lose that fight it puts me all the way back down again and I have to work back up for a title fight. So if I am guaranteed a title fight now, I’ll take the title fight or if I don’t want to wait such a long time I’ll take another opponent who I have a more ‘guaranteed’ win over. I still think I can beat Jon Fitch – Jon’s a very tough guy, but I think that if I am in shape that I can beat him eight out of 10 times. But at this point I don’t want to jeopardize anything leading up to my title fight, so we’ll see what the UFC will offer and what I will take.”

UFC 80: ‘Rapid Fire’ to air on CBS network … not PPV?
(mmamania.com)
Dave Meltzer from WrestlingObserver.com throws out a juicy nugget in the recent print publication of his newsletter: UFC 80: “Rapid Fire”— not UFC 81 as speculated — could air for FREE on the CBS network rather than pay-per-view (PPV) if a deal can be hammered out in time. It seems that The Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike is beginning to reduce the television landscape “to a barren wasteland of reruns and infomercials.”

"With three title fights taking place on the upcoming World Extreme Cagefighting show on Dec. 12, the promotion lost one of their undercard bouts as the fight between Chance Farrar and Micah Miller has been removed from the card as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by Miller’s training partner, Blake Bowman." Apparently Farrar suffered a hand injury and will be unable to compete. This is unfortunate, I was looking forward to this fight. It would have been a war.
