Fedor committed to fighting for M-1, not UFC
(thefightnetwork.com)
If this is true, then this really sucks. How long can he stay the #1 ranked P4P fighter in the world when he hasn't fought anyone of note in a while, and a large portion of the top heavyweight talent is in the UFC? What a bummer...

Machida Wants Jardine Next
Keith Jardine and Forrest Griffin were the talk of the town at UFC 76. Both Jardine and Griffin upset favorites Chuck “the Iceman” Liddell and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua respectively, instantly catapulting themselves up the Light Heavyweight rankings. Despite improving his MMA record to a perfect 11-0 that very same night by defeating Kazuhiro Nakamura, Ryoto “Lyoto” Machida was lost in the shadows. As a result, it is natural that the Brazilian would like to prove himself and stake his place amongst the upper echelons of the Light Heavyweight division. And what better way to make a statement than to take on the LHW division’s current “it-boy”? In an interview with Brazilian publication, Portal Do Vale Tudo, Lyoto Machida reveals that he would very much like to fight Jardine. Machida states, “I would like to fight against Keith Jardine. If he could knock out Forrest Griffin and defeat Chuck Liddell, then he is the one I want to fight.” Unfortunately for Ryoto, it may be a while before we see him getting a shot at the title. Machida is in a very difficult position. He is a great, proven fighter; yet he lacks the drawing power that many of the other fighters possess in the Light Heavyweight division. A victory against a high profile fighter such as Jardine or Griffin could very well be the catalyst that Machida needs to boost his popularity in UFC.

Roger Huerta has found solace as rising star in UFC
(sportsillustrated.cnn.com)
The bridge had been dangling in the river for less than a week, but it had already become a macabre civic landmark, the Twin Cities' answer to Manhattan's Ground Zero. On a scorching day last August, Roger Huerta was piloting his Jeep Commander from downtown Minneapolis to the St. Paul YMCA, where he trains in mixed martial arts. He drove slowly as he crossed the Mississippi River, pointing out the remnants of the I-35W bridge, whose collapse had caused the deaths of 13 Minnesotans six days earlier.

Q&A with Machida - wants to fight Jardine next
(fightbeat.com)
If an undefeated fighter is a virtually unknown to the mainstream fans the first reason that comes to mind is that he hasn’t fought top competition. This could not be further from the truth when it comes to UFC 205 lb. contender Lyoto Machida. Lyoto has fought and defeated UFC stars Rich Franklin, B.J Penn, and Stephan Bonnar. Most recently Lyoto won a one-sided unanimous decision over Pride Veteran Kazuhiro Nakamura at UFC 76 making Lyoto a perfect 3-0 in the UFC. In this must read interview Lyoto explains how he bucked the trend and made a successful transition into the octagon, his toughest fight of his career, and who he wants to make unlucky victim number 12. All of this and much more in this fightbeat exclusive......................

Lessons to be learned from UFC's rematch history
(sportsline.com)
At UFC 77 on Oct. 20, Rich Franklin will have the opportunity to avenge the most devastating loss of his career. It was one year ago that Anderson Silva brutalized Franklin with devastating knees from the clinch, and took Franklin's middleweight title in the first round. In order to win back his title, Franklin will have to not only defeat Silva but conquer the memory of that first fight. UFC history suggests that is easier said than done. There have been 53 rematches in UFC history. Setting aside draws and no contests, the fighters who won the previous bout were 33-17 in the rematch, winning two-thirds of those fights.
