Franklin’s keys to reclaiming the title
Holding on to a title in MMA isn’t easy. Just ask the six champions who left the UFC Octagon without their belts in the last 12 months. It all started when Anderson Silva stopped Rich Franklin to win the UFC middleweight crown on October 14, 2006, at UFC 64. At the very next UFC pay-per-view event, Georges St-Pierre knocked out Matt Hughes to win the 170-lb crown in a one-sided affair. A few months later, Randy Couture came out of retirement and shocked the world by pounding out Tim Sylvia to win the heavyweight crown at UFC 68.

TKO'd! Long-expected And "Guaranteed" UFC-HBO Deal Dead
The long-talked about deal between UFC and the pay TV network HBO, which Dana White "guaranteed by the end of 2007", is officially dead. No specific reasons except the business models not making sense. Bad for HBO, but potentially very good for Spike and fans who don't or can't get HBO, this could mean more free UFC events on Spike. Dana can't be too happy about this right now, yet another grand master plan blowing up in his face.

TUF main event....
Since joining the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Clay Guida has put on some of the most exciting fights the lightweight division has ever seen. Now he gets a chance to ply his craft in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter Finale on Dec. 8, as he faces popular fighter Roger Huerta. “I think it was more timing that anything,” said Guida of his sudden rise to main event status. “I was out at Ultimate Fight Night a couple weeks ago at the Palms and Joe Silva approached me and mentioned it. It sounded like a good fight for the both of us. This has fight of the year written all over it.” “Fight of the year” indeed, as both Guida and Huerta have been involved in bouts that left fans muttering such words.

The Spider’s Web - Part One
When you’re a champion in mixed martial arts, there is no off-season, no time to take a few weeks off for vacation or to bask in the glory of being the best at what you do. So when you ask UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva about the training camp for his highly-anticipated rematch with Rich Franklin at UFC 77 on October 20th, and when it began, he just smiles.
