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.

Instead of writing out long-winded explanations of why I like one fighter over another and then detailing their history ad nauseum, I'll just link to a few places that aren't as lazy as I am and actually go through with the horrendous ordeal. LINK

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

RAMPAGE READY TO MELT THE ICEMAN
Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson’s career has come full circle. He was once considered a top contender in Pride’s middleweight division, but had failed to capture the Pride Middleweight title.

The fire within the Iceman’s belly
Although he has ‘iced’ 13 of the 18 men he has fought thus far in his 20-3 mixed martial arts career, Chuck Liddell was originally dubbed ‘the Iceman’ not because of his chilling striking power but because of his unchanging ice-cool demeanour. LINK

MMA's main man
LAS VEGAS – He's Babe Ruth in 1925 or George Mikan in 1950. Still, since his sport has such a short history, Chuck Liddell isn't sure the tag of best mixed martial artist ever can be properly determined just yet. "It's such a young sport," said Liddell, the UFC's light heavyweight champion, who defends his belt Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden in a rematch with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Jackson is the last man to have beaten Liddell. LINK

From the Edge of Madness to Fighting’s Mainstream
Mixed martial arts was, in its recent outlaw years, the criminal element of sports, called “human cockfighting” by Senator John McCain and written into legal exile in New York by a stroke of former Gov. George E. Pataki’s pen. link

Jackson takes aim at Liddell again
LAS VEGAS — Some fight for a living. Quinton (Rampage) Jackson says he whups ass. And Saturday night at UFC 71, Jackson looks to take down mixed martial arts superstar Chuck (The Iceman) Liddell — for a second time. "My job is to excite everybody, put on a good show and whup some ass," Jackson told a news conference Thursday. "That's what I get paid to do." Liddell, who has already endured a Jackson ass-whuppin', is looking for payback. LINK

Chris Leben Ready To Bounce Back
For Chris Leben, Saturday night can make or break his fighting career. A win would put Leben back into the fold of the crowded UFC middleweight division. A loss could very well signal the end of Leben's current run in the UFC. With new endeavourers ahead of him, Leben will look to take care of business against fellow Ultimate Fighter alumni Kalib Starnes. LINK
