shonie carter speaks out on the ufc
(mmafever.blogspot.com)
SC: As soon as I get back, I'm going to see what's up because I know the UFC was tripping about me fighting. I'm like, look, I can't sit around and wait all year and they didn't use me all year. I mean, my rent was due. Even me going to Canada…I mean, the whole story behind me fighting goes beyond the fight. I owed child support and I was paying the mom instead of paying the state. I go to renew my passport and they cease my passport and give me 24 hours to pay it or I'm going to get a knock on the door by the sheriff.

Mixed martial arts fans will witness the UFC’s first-ever Brit-versus-Brit bout when undefeated Paul Kelly takes on Paul Taylor at UFC 80 “Rapid Fire” on Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England.

Kelly (6-0) began his professional career in 2005, with a match against Nigel Whitear at FX3 “Battle of Britain.” The bout lasted all of 54 seconds. In the two years since, the welterweight has finished off five more opponents. Five of his six wins have come in the opening round. Taylor (8-2-1, 1-1 UFC), meanwhile, has already fought in two of the three UFC shows in the UK and is coming off a submission loss to Marcus Davis at UFC 75 in September.

Jackson Says GSP Will Be Ready For War
(mmaweekly.com)
When it was announced that Georges St-Pierre would step up on short notice to battle Matt Hughes for the interim welterweight title on Dec. 29, Greg Jackson, St-Pierre’s coach and trainer, kicked into overdrive to make sure his fighter would be ready for the task at hand, a five-round title fight with possibly the most dominant champion in Ultimate Fighting Championship history. “I don’t think he’s looking past Matt Hughes at all. Quite the contrary, we’re really excited. Matt’s in great shape, I’m sure, from training so hard to fight Serra, so we’re expecting a five-round war and we’re going to make sure that we’re not expecting to knock him out. We’re not expecting to tap him out. If that happens, hey that’s great, we’re expecting to be in a great war.”
