Ultimate Fighting Lacks Sweetness
Having spent the better part of my writing career chasing the real-life Rockys and the other assorted crooked-nosed, "Guys and Dolls" characters who live under boxing's big tent, I am an incurable, die-hard lover of the Sweet Science. LINK

Hyped rematch pits two of UFC's top talent
Turn to any form of sports media during the past week and it's likely you've seen Chuck Liddell. Television? Check. Radio? Check. Magazines and newspapers? Check. Liddell's rematch against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has become, arguably, the most hyped mixed martial arts match of all time, considering the amount of national media coverage the sport has received recently. With that, Liddell not only has become the face of the organization for which he fights, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, but the sport of mixed martial arts as a whole. LINK

CSAC Grants FEG License, Saku Status Uncertain
The California State Athletic Commission on Friday announced it has granted FEG USA a temporary promoter's license just eight days before the company is scheduled to hold "Dynamite!! USA" at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Originally billed with a main event featuring the mixed martial arts debut of former WWE star Brock Lesnar (Pictures) against popular South Korean figure Hong-Man Choi (1-0-0), FEG was left scrambling on Tuesday for options after the CSAC denied Choi, 26, a license to fight due to unnamed medical concerns. In the wake of the seven-foot-two Choi's questionable health, FEG opted to look for a second medical opinion while exploring for a replacement fighter. LINK

Dana White: Diego Sanchez Nearly Retired Prior to UFC 69
With today’s UFC 71 weigh-ins, I can’t help but remember the infamous weigh-in events from UFC 69 last month in Houston. The day before a much-publicized main-card bout bout between The Ultimate Fighter 1 cast mates and (now bitter rivals) Josh Koscheck and Diego Sanchez, Houston fight fans got a preview of just how real the hatred was.

Liddell: “Now it’s My Turn”
In the professional fight game, nothing sells more than revenge, especially if two fighters aren't particularly fond of one another. The fights that harvest the most dollar bills are typically over-hyped rematches exploiting only two scenarios, sometimes used in conjunction. link
