BJ Penn is a little small...
“His intensity seemed forced, and he seemed a little small. I am ready to go five five-minute rounds, and we will see tomorrow night if he is ready too. I sacrificed a lot more than B.J. B.J. may have done a lot to get ready for this fight, but I doubt he did more than me. I have dotted all my I’s and crossed all my T’s, I am ready to go.” - Kenflo I thought Kenny looked smaller than BJ, but what do I know... EDIT: Sorry if this belongs with the news and not here...

Wilson Gouveia Off 102 With Injury
Ed Herman might've picked a bad time to step out of his UFN 19 fight for a UFC 102 fight. After James Irvin went down with an injury and was forced off UFC 102, Herman stepped up to be the replacement and face Wilson Gouveia. Now Gouveia is off due to a back injury. No word on if there will be a replacement for Gouveia.

Edith fired for being hungover?
Edith LeBelle is officially no longer a UFC Octagon girl, as fans suspected when they noticed she had been removed from the UFC site. "Something happened, but at this time, I can only confirm that Edith no longer works for the UFC," her manager told MMA FanHouse. The ‘something’ that happened has not been made public by the UFC either. In fact the UFC has made no comment on the Canadian’s departure at all. But Fighters Only has been given to understand that LaBelle landed in hot water after phoning the UFC on the morning of UFC 100 and telling them she was too ill to work the event that night. The UFC apparently disputed that and claimed she was hungover from partying in Las Vegas the night before. As a result, she was dismissed with immediate effect, which is why viewers did not see her working the Octagon at UFC 100.

Forrest Griffin Embraces Challenge of Solving Anderson Silva's Riddle
PHILADELPHIA -- From the beginning, he's been the underdog. You want to talk about taking the hard road? In his first professional fight, Forrest Griffin didn't face a fellow rookie. He didn't even compete against a hot prospect. The first time he stepped into a cage, Griffin fought Dan "the Beast" Severn, an ex-UFC tournament champion in his 58th career fight.

UFC president Dana White dishes insults, takes aim at rival "Strike-farce"
PHILADELPHIA - It appears the friendly rivalry between the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Strikeforce is no more. Although Dana White previously had been complimentary of Strikeforce and its co-founder and president, Scott Coker, the UFC president today referred to the organization as "Strike-farce" and hinted that counter-programming and public criticism – often-used weapons with former rivals such as EliteXC and Affliction – could be on the way.

Bring Your "A" Games, Fighters, Or Else...You're In Philly
No, that wasn't Dana White's pre-UFC 101 pep talk to the fighters. That's a quote from Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission Executive Director Greg Sirb on what he's telling the fighters ahead of Saturday's event. He says remember this isn't Vegas or New Jersey-bring your "B" game, and Philly fans will be Philly fans...meaning the fighters are going to hear it.

Joe Silva Talks Gegard Mousasi: "We Never Even Made an Offer to Mousasi"
"Contrary to the claim made today by M-1 that Mousasi was on the phone during negotiations with Joe Silva for his services, Joe adamantly denies that is true. Had that been the case, there would have been no reason for Mousasi to call Joe to question Echteld’s claim of a $40,000/$40,000 offer from the UFC."

Video of the Day: BJ Penn backtracking, appologetic for GSP-steroids comments
BJ Penn’s recent public comments about Georges St-Pierre using steroids have probably led to Dana White giving him a verbal lashing for such an idiotic comment. It’s safe to say that the UFC probably doesn’t want the negative publicity of that the MLB or WWE gets for steroids, but this news is already finding itself in front of the mainstream on news such as Yahoo!. Have a look at these two videos posted by BJ Penn *after* the story caught fire.

Dan Miller vs Aaron Simpson (Dan Miller replacing Ed Herman) at Sept 19 UFN
Originally slated for Ed Herman vs Aaron Simpson, Herman is now fighting Wilson Gouveia after James Irvin had to back out due to injury. I like Dan Miller to win this bout by 2nd round submission - Guillotine. Those Jersey Millers can scrap! !

Ben Rothwell on lesnar : I literally knocked a guy into a concussion during sparring with a head kick.
"Actually, a year before he really started in MMA, Lesnar came to our camp for two weeks. He watched as I – and I’m not happy about it or bragging about it – but I literally knocked a guy into a concussion during sparring with a head kick. Lesnar just said, ‘Please don’t do that to me.’ He’s not going to forget that. He’s going to know that one hit from me and that could be it " Look out Fyodor .

M-1 Global's Jerry Millen: Fedor Emelianenko is not dodging Brock Lesnar
Business negotiations are always a complex matter. Business negotiations between the UFC and M-1 Global have at times bordered on bizarre. But while the two companies recently failed once again to come together and bring Fedor Emelianenko, the world's top heavyweight, to the UFC, the world's top MMA promotion, M-1 Global exec Jerry Millen wants to make one thing perfectly clear: Emelianenko is not dodging UFC champ Brock Lesnar.

Seriously. According to a fighters.com article posted yesterday, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion confessed to playing Russian Roulette recently, and it wasn't the first time. Apparently he has been having trouble dealing with his last 2 fights, losses to Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers, and returned to his native Belarus to get help.
