Things aren’t looking too hot for Randy
For those of you who didn’t read the novel of a live blog we did earlier today, let me summarize the UFC press conference for you: It was 10 minutes of facts and then 45 minutes of rhetoric. Mixed in were 5 minutes of stupidity from random douche ‘journalists’. Nowhere to be seen at this conference was Kevin Iole, who no doubt was off somewhere kicking the ass of the source who led him so astray. Their plan is to offer Randy another fight this week. That fight will be for sometime early 2008 and most likely be against Big Nog. If Randy doesn’t accept that fight then they’ll consider him retired and have other guys fight for the vacant title. If Randy simply does not intend to fulfill his contract, it looks like the UFC is locked and loaded for sexy court action. Wait a second … court action isn’t sexy at all. Shit.

Din Thomas arrested??
Din Thomas (Pictures) was arrested Tuesday in Port St. Lucie, Florida, for running in his local gym what a police spokesman called "illegal cage fighting" matches. The TCPalm reported that Thomas faces a felony prohibited-competitions charge after police entered his training studio and watched two men fighting in an "octagon-shaped ring" before roughly 150 spectators. "At the end of the day, he was having a professional mixed martial arts match that was not licensed through us," Sam Farkas, a spokesman for Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation, told the TCPalm. "It was a case of unlicensed activity." Sherdog.com confirmed the arrest with a representative of Thomas' American Top Team camp. According to ATT, Thomas was in the process of posting a $10,000 bond to obtain his release from jail. Thomas, a veteran lightweight currently competing in the UFC, lost his most recent bout on Sept. 19 to Kenny Florian (Pictures) in the main event of a UFC Fight Night card. He injured his knee in the match before succumbing to a rear-naked choke. Prior to the Florian loss, Thomas was on a three-fight winning streak in the UFC. Source: http://sherdog.com/

Liddell vs Silva – What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been
Ever since 1998, when they fought on the same local show in Brazil, Wanderlei Silva has wanted to fight Chuck Liddell. It was something in the attitude of both men, an attitude that said ‘I’m gonna stand here and hit you, and you can hit me back, but one of us is going to go down, and I’m not gonna stop swinging until that happens.’

Sizing up the Middleweight Division - Part I
No fighter is unbeatable. That much we know for sure. Nevertheless, reigning UFC middleweight ruler Anderson Silva certainly seems poised, at least for the short term, to challenge that truism. It is hard to imagine anyone knocking off the champion if he remains focused on preparing himself for every fight.

Matt Hughes Gives His Thoughts On Randy Couture
The following is a post from Matt Hughes on his official website www.matt-hughes.com: My Thoughts on Randy Couture. October 29th, 2007 Well I’ve been tapering off of farm work and training more and more now that the fight’s getting closer, but I know you all have been waiting to hear my thoughts on Randy leaving the UFC, so here we go. I don’t know exactly what is going through Randy’s head, I haven’t talked to him, nor have I talked to Dana White about this situation. However, I somewhat agree with Randy. A couple of years ago, the UFC was a much smaller organization and I knew everybody that worked for them. When I wanted something, I knew who to call and who would get it done. I miss that ...

Dan Henderson Might Fight at UFC 79
Dan Henderson, who most recently lost a unanimous decision to UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson in September, may return to the octagon Dec. 29 at UFC 79. The news come from Bubba The Love Sponge, who recently spoke to Henderson in Las Vegas. The Sirius Satellite Radio host mentioned the encounter during today’s episode of his show, and the news also appeared on the show’s official website, BTLS.com. (MMAjunkie.com is a content-partner site of BTLS.com.) According to Bubba, Henderson wouldn’t name his possible opponent but did mention that he may be dropping to 185 pounds for the fight. That’s actually news itself. In a post-UFC 77 press conference earlier this month, UFC President Dana White said he wants Henderson to drop to middleweight but that the fighter seemed opposed to the idea. Henderson has one fight remaining on his current contract, which was acquired when the UFC’s owners purchased PRIDE earlier this year (though not all of the fighters’ contracts were transferable). Although Henderson recently stated he was unhappy with the UFC’s initial offer, he said he was optimistic a deal would be reached. A new deal would likely need to be in place before the UFC would officially book Henderson for his next fight. UFC 79 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and features a main event between UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra and former champ Matt Hughes.
