UFC 79: Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou possibly on the fight card?
(mmamania.com)
Coveted light heavyweight free agent Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou — who boasts impressive stoppages of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ricardo Arona — mentions in a recent interview that he is unsure of his next fight. Moments later he throws out December 29, which is the date for UFC 79: “Nemesis” at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Prior to these latest statements it was believed that the :African Assassin” was headed for the K-1 organization. It’s going to be very interesting to see how this situation unfolds.

Sherdog Rankings

Rankings for all weight classes. Not to shabby. Much better than the MMAWeekly's thats all I can say. Like always I got to express how messed up every ranking in the world is for still having Takanori Gomi as their top lightweight.

(mmaweekly.com)
As the sport of mixed martial arts grows, so does the growing need for the fighters, who are now becoming financially sound and successful full-time athletes, to understand the business side of the industry they work in. Recently, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, the largest organization in MMA, held meetings with many of their fighters and employees to help educate and inform them on many business practices and personal decisions they are now being faced with. “This thing was long overdue,” said UFC president Dana White about the meetings. “We should have done this a couple of years ago because we've got a lot of growing pains right now.

Spencer Fisher looks to take more strategic approach at UFC 78
(canadianpress.google.com)
At 31, Spencer (The King) Fisher isn't ready to slow down. But the mixed martial arts fighter does want to play it smart against lightweight Frank (The Answer) Edgar on Saturday night at UFC 78 in Newark, N.J. In the past Fisher has thrown punches, kicks, knees and caution into the wind. It's made for entertaining fights, but it has also put Fisher (21-3) under undue pressure at times. "I'm going to try to change things up for this fight," Fisher said in an interview.

First UFC forever altered combat sports
(sports.yahoo.com)
On November 12, 1993, everything most Americans thought they knew about fighting was thrown out the window. At the time, most people figured that the marquee heavyweight boxer, the imprisoned Mike Tyson, was the baddest man on the planet. But there were people with amateur wrestling backgrounds who thought otherwise, figuring that a wrestler could take a boxer off his feet and once he got him there, the boxer’s weapons were useless.

HORODECKI-FABIANO NIXED
(thefightnetwork.com)
Tompkins revealed this weekend that the IFL had withdrawn Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Wagnney Fabiano from the 155-pound final against the undefeated Horodecki on Saturday, Dec. 29 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. and replaced him with Shad Lierley. Tompkins said Fabiano would instead fight for the soon-to-be minted featherweight (under 145 pounds) championship Dec. 29. No opponent has been announced. The IFL plans to use its year-end event as a staging point to launch the new weight class, according to Tompkins. “I believe the IFL, in that show, is going to start a 145-pound division, and Wagnney will be fighting for a 145-pound title,” Tompkins said. “We’re big fans of Wagnney Fabiano. Obviously, he’s waved the Canadian flag for [the Toronto Dragons]. We hope he becomes the 145-pound champion.”
