Michael Bisping has a fat little friend named Charles McCarthy
(mmamania.com)
“I suppose he is trying to convince himself that he does belong in there, and I imagine he thinks he is being clever, trying to play mind games and ‘get into my head.’ Some people think if you get someone mad then they won’t perform as well. Congratulations Charles. You succeeded in pissing me off by not only disrespecting me, but all of my previous opponents. If you think that this is a good thing, wrong. You have made a big mistake by making this personal. Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not someone to be messed around when I’m pissed. So I will see you on the 19th when I will bring all of my ‘averageness.’ Just hope your ready for this mediocre fighter, because make no mistake my fat little friend, I’m ready for you!” “The Count” responds directly to this. Here we go … as expected. Full interview

"TUF7" Blog: C.B. Dollaway discusses episode No. 1
(mmajunkie.com)
Imagine putting your training, girlfriend, everything on hold because you were able to pursue your dream. For a select few and me, we got that chance -- or so we thought. When I was told I was selected for "The Ultimate Fighter 7," I was told the basics, which included: don't tell anyone, be here by this date, and be ready to go. There were no caveats, but also as I think back, there were not a lot of "welcome aboard" or "glad to have you" comments being made either. It would of stood out, but my trainers and of course my family were telling me congrats and all and filling my head with positive thoughts.

Florian, Lauzon, Irvin and Diaz earn UFN13 "fight night" bonuses
(mmajunkie.com)
Kenny Florian, Joe Lauzon, James Irvin and Nate Diaz all earned "fight night" bonuses at Wednesday's UFC Fight Night 13 event. MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that the fighters received $20,000 bonuses for their performances. UFC Fight Night 13 took place at the Broomfield Event Center near Denver. The 12-fight event featured a headline bout between Florian and Lauzon, and the main card aired on Spike TV. Florian defeated Lauzon with a second-round TKO in an entertaining lightweight bout that had title implications. After a close first round, Florian dominated the second after securing the mount position. Both fighters were awarded bonuses for "Fight of the Night." Irvin, who defeated Houston Alexander and tied the record for the quickest knockout in UFC history, picked of "Knockout of the Night" honors. Irvin set up the eight-second TKO with a Superman punch -- his first punch of the fight -- that floored his opponent. Alexander protested the stoppage with referee Steve Mazzagatti, but it did little good. Diaz, meanwhile, picked up a "Submission of the Night" bonus for a remarkable, come-from-behind victory over Kurt Pellegrino. After being battered and bloodied in the first round, Diaz secured a fight-ending triangle choke in the second. "The Ultimate Fighter 6" winner, confident in the submission hold, actually flexed for the cameras and celebrated the victory before his opponent tapped out

Rampage: Coaching skills? I shouldn't even be allowed to carry a Coach wallet
(mensfitness.com)
Can you recall your very first fight? My mom said I've been fighting since I was in Pampers. But the first fight I remember happened when I was 5 years old. I let this kid borrow one of my Hot Wheels cars. A few days later I asked for it back and he said he had lost it. I started walking home and I thought, 'No, I can't let him get away with that.' So I came back and just whooped up on him. He was one of my good friends but I liked my Hot Wheels better. Did he end up finding your missing Hot Wheels car? No, but he found a hot ass-whoopin'. What is the most gruesome injury you've experienced while fighting? I really don't like thinking about that stuff—but it wasn't very fun when I broke my hand [during his victory over Dan Henderson at UFC 75]. I would say the most gruesome injury I've seen was when Cro Cop got his leg bent backwards [against Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 70], even though he ended up being all right.

The event is going to be three hours on Spike TV, and it will be followed by the premiere of The Ultimate Fighter 7, where Forrest Griffin and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will be coaches before they fight for Jackson’s light heavyweight title this summer. This will be a great night for any fight fan, and you’ll be sorry if you miss it. Let’s get started with the breakdown.
