Nogueira's trainer: Sylvia Cheated
(mmafightline.com)
Luiz Alves, the muy thai trainer for Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, was recently interviewed by the Brazilian news site tatame.com and has made some interesting remarks concerning “Big Nog’s” recent victory over Tim Sylvia. Alvez made the claim during his interview that “the Americans” were using baby cream which would not become slippery until it came in contact with sweat If his claims are valid it will be interesting to see what course of action the UFC will take to punish this sort of behavior, or to prevent this sort of foul from being committed in the future.

Dana White: New York City or Boston Will Host a UFC Event in 2008
(mmajunkie.com)
Although neither state currently sanctions mixed-martial arts, New York or Massachusetts — or more specifically, New York City or Boston — will host a UFC event in 2008, UFC President Dana White guarantees. The UFC’s head honcho made the promise in today’s edition of The Patriot Ledger. “I’m going to be as bold as to say I guarantee you either we’ll be in the Boston Garden or Madison Square Garden (by the end of the year),” White told the newspaper. New York City’s Madison Square Garden is one of the sporting world’s most legendary venues. The 20,000-capacity arena initially rose to fame by hosting classic boxing events. The Boston Garden (officially named the TD Banknorth Garden) is a 19,600-capacity venue that opened in 1995.

Shogun' Discusses Liddell and Plans for ‘08
(sherdog.com)
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (Pictures) started 2008 in a new home. The fighter left Chute Boxe and, along with three former Chute Boxe teammates, created the Universidade da Luta. With the structure of his new team almost set, Rua spoke with Sherdog.com about his plans for the year ahead, which includes a showdown against former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (Pictures). Gleidson Venga: What did you think about Chuck Liddell (Pictures) as your next opponent? Mauricio Rua: I think that was a great choice. Liddell is a great fighter and it's a good fight for me because he is a very famous guy in America. Liddell is a tough guy, hard to defeat, but I think that there are no easy fights in my weight division. I'll go straight up over him and I'll give a great show to my fans.

Eying the Lightweight Landscape
(ufc.com)
Many believe it is the most exciting division in mixed martial arts. But not many guys walking around at 155 pounds have truly devastating, one-punch knockout power like Chuck Liddell or Tim Sylvia. Not many of them can fire a high kick like Mirko Cro Cop or Gabriel Gonzaga. So, what makes the little fellas so exciting? It can be summed up with three words: blazing, nonstop action. Stated differently, a lightweight bout is like watching the other weight classes on fast forward. From lightning quick punches that come in rapid-fire succession to amazing scrambles to crazy transition jiu-jitsu, the little guys know how to thrill the crowd. Who is the division kingpin? Who is next up to challenge for the title? And what marquee names round out the list of true division contenders?

Tim Kennedy - Open Letter
To the IFL and fans of MMA, It is with regret that I must announce I will have an assignment with the United States Army that will prevent me from fighting on the 29th of February, 2008. I serve my country with great honor and I am proud of my service. I would like to thank the MMA, IFL fans, and media that have rallied to my support. I am sorry I will be unable to provide another exciting fight. Your support over the MMA forums and articles has been extremely humbling and kind. This fight with Matt Horwich would have been an excellent match up for me and for the fans, as our styles would have made a great fight. This assignment will not prevent me from other fights this year. As many of you know, I had four IFL and HDNet fights along with five US Army fights in 2007. This is the first fight in 7 years of fighting I will have to miss. Fighting is what I enjoy and I will return this year! I would like to specifically thank Kurt Otto and the IFL for their continued support of me and my commitments to the United States Army. The IFL is a great organization that truly supports its fighters and provides an excellent show for the fans in attendance. I wish them the best and I hope they will give me another chance to win the IFL belt this year. All the best, Tim Kennedy http://ifl.tv/News-08Feb06-Tim-Kennedy-letter.html
