Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou no longer signing with Elite XC. Sokoudjou to sign with K-1
One high-profile fighter who won't appear on an EliteXC card in the coming year is Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (Pictures), this despite the light heavyweight verbally agreeing to a deal with Pro Elite that would have kept him busy, fighting four times in 12 months. Reports surfaced Friday that Sokoudjou (4-1-0), who knocked out Ricardo Arona and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in his last two fights, fielded a late offer from K-1. Ryan Parsons, a representative for the 23-year-old fighter, told Sherdog.com that the K-1 contract promised "significantly more money" than the potential $200,000 per-fight Sokoudjou was slated to receive from Pro Elite. Last week K-1 approached Sokoudjou with a one-year offer that would have placed the young Team Quest fighter against either Melvin Manhoef or Alistair Overeem on Monday's HERO'S card in Yokohama, the first of at least three fights he would have owed the Japanese promotion. However, failing to obtain a visa on short notice delayed the PRIDE veteran's return to Japan, and will keep Sokoudjou in Southern California this weekend. Having backed away from EliteXC, Sokoudjou now awaits signing with K-1, which Parsons said should happen "shortly."

Weightvclass For Leben Vs Swick Fight Currently Undecided
A much-anticipated rematch between The Ultimate Fighter 1 cast members Chris Leben (16-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) and Mike Swick (10-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) will take place at UFC Fight Night 11 — most likely as the night’s main event — but the weight class for the fight is still undecided. Swick has been told that Leben plans to drop to 170 pounds for the fight, but if the weight loss proves too daunting for the Oregon slugger, Swick’s camp says the fight will go on at 185 pounds. Interesting in my opinion. Didn't think Leben could make 170.

This is from Matt Hughes blog on his site “If Rich [Franklin] looses then I would move up and fight Anderson [Silva]. I would never fight Rich.” This could be very very interesting and a fight I would love to see. Thoughts? Props to UFCMANIA.com for this.

The Highly Unofficial Half-Year UFC Awards - The Submissions
It usually won’t make SportsCenter’s Plays of The Day, but there is nothing more effective and decisive than a fight-ending submission. And when it’s done right, there is nothing in mixed martial arts as impressive. But who in the first half of 2007 has really stepped up and ended a fight with one of those moves we can only pull off in video games? Let’s find out in part three of the Highly Unofficial Half-Year UFC Awards, as we look at the best submissions of the first six months and one week of 2007.
