Andrei Arlovski Wants to Fight Before Negotiating New Deal
(mmajunkie.com)
It’s not the salary demands that has former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski sitting on the sidelines. The Chicago-based fighter, who has one fight remaining on his current deal, just wants to fulfill the terms of his contract before he considers negotiating a new one. Apparently unwilling to do that, the UFC has kept Arlovski sitting on the sidelines since his UFC 70 victory over Fabricio Werdum nearly seven months ago. Roman Modrowski shed some light on the situation in today’s edition of the Chicago Sun-Times (MMAjunkie.com also mentioned the Arlovski-UFC situation briefly on Wednesday).

Bernard Hopkins Thanks UFC For Helping Boxing
(mmafightline.com)
Legendary Boxer Bernard Hopkins, who also doubles as a promoter for Golden Boy Promotions, had some kind words for the UFC in the course of promoting a fight between Shane Mosely and Miguel Cotto according to TheAge.com. "I will say thanks to the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) that boxing now has to step up and make the matches that interest people," he said. Hopkins has gone on record recently about his opinion that the UFC has pushed boxing to make better matches. "Boxing is back like the 1980s, with the (Marvin) Haglers and the (Sugar) Ray Leonards," Hopkins said. "Now the talent is going head to head with other champions."

Mark Kerr ends five-fight slide
(mmafighting.com)
HOLLYWOOD, CA -- Mark Kerr emerged victorious for the first time in over seven years, submitting Stephen Gavin via keylock at 1:19 of the first round Wednesday night at Xcess Fighting. The 39-year-old heavyweight, who fought for the UFC and PRIDE promotions from 1997-2004, last won in 2000 at PRIDE 10 against an inexperienced Igor Borisov. In 1997, Kerr appeared to be destined to become an MMA great. He kicked off his MMA career winning three fights in one night at the World Vale Tudo Championship 3 and then following up with two straight UFC tournament wins at UFC 14 and 15. He cashed in on his success five months later by signing with PRIDE, where he would call home for almost six years.
