Mark Kerr ends five-fight slide
(mmafighting.com)
HOLLYWOOD, CA -- Mark Kerr emerged victorious for the first time in over seven years, submitting Stephen Gavin via keylock at 1:19 of the first round Wednesday night at Xcess Fighting. The 39-year-old heavyweight, who fought for the UFC and PRIDE promotions from 1997-2004, last won in 2000 at PRIDE 10 against an inexperienced Igor Borisov. In 1997, Kerr appeared to be destined to become an MMA great. He kicked off his MMA career winning three fights in one night at the World Vale Tudo Championship 3 and then following up with two straight UFC tournament wins at UFC 14 and 15. He cashed in on his success five months later by signing with PRIDE, where he would call home for almost six years.

Rashad Evans' Road to 78 - Week Two
(ufc.com)
Sometimes it doesn’t pay to be nice. I was trying to be a nice guy here on this blog, and then Bisping went and made all these comments about me last week and now I’m training five times a day because he pissed me off. How is he gonna say that I’m making a mistake in saying what I did last week? I think I’ve got him sized up right and I wasn’t wrong about one thing I said about this guy. He surprised me when he fired back the way he did, but that’s exactly what I want to hear and I want him to believe what he’s saying. I want him to believe that he can go in there and knock me out. We’ll see on the 17th.
