Fedor talks UFC, Randy Couture
“As far as I know, [the UFC] give me Randy Couture, so there is talk about a match against this fighter. I respect Randy very much. Of course, to be honest, I would not want to fight him because I really admire this fighter, and we could have become friends. Oh well, a fight is a fight, and if they put us against each other, . As far as fighting in the UFC goes, I think I’ll have to fight him, I won’t have a lot of problems as far as cage is concerned.”

Keith Jardine: ‘More excited’ to beat Griffin than Liddell
“I think (beating) Forrest [Griffin], I was a lot more excited. It was a knockout finish. After this fight [with Chuck Liddell], I wasn’t running around. I was physically exhausted.” – Keith Jardine talks about his split-decision win over former light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell at UFC 76: “Knockout” on September 22. “The Dean of Mean” also mentions that he wants a crack at the current 205-pound titleholder, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, in early 2008. And if he can’t get that bout he’ll rematch Houston Alexander because “that fight should happen.” Story at : Source :

Which Competitor Would Win In A Street Fight?
A boxer can't beat a UFC fighter in a real fight. It's as simple as that. A guy from the UFC like Sean "The Muscle Shark" Sherk - the best lightweight they have - would topple Floyd Mayweather with relative ease.

The Rock Is Cookin' On UFC
ESPN recently interviewed former wrestler-turned-movie star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and one of the subjects Rock commented on was MMA, specifically UFC. I can't really see him ever fighting in MMA but with his personality and charisma he could be a great promoter someday, and with his connections he already has I'd see him having no problem securing some great talent.

Yves Edwards Moves To American Top Team
Lightweight Yves Edwards, a PRIDE and UFC veteran, was recently introduced as the newest member of the American Top Team camp. Edwards is on a 3-fight losing streak but feels the move to ATT should help turn his career around. While this definitely gets him in with many top Lightweights, what also caught my eye was his mentioning the importance of being with a top team because there's no fighters' unions in MMA. But just being able to train with some of their LW big names (Kang, Gouveia, Thomas, etc.) should help him quickly turn things around.

MMA & Mexico: A Matter Of Time
MMA is growing in popularity all over the world, but one major area has been largely untouched by it yet: Mexico. While the Hispanic community is very big on boxing, the fanbase for MMA, despite efforts to promote Hispanic stars like Roger Huerta, remains very small and with nowhere near the passionate following for boxing. As a Hispanic boxing and MMA fan I read this with great interest. I think UFC is doing a good job with using Huerta to try and attract more Hispanics and Latinos to MMA, both as fans and fighters, but they need to find more fighters willing to take on the challenge and also not put them in mismatches like what other promotions (namely PRIDE) have done in the past. It would also help if some of the more popular boxing names were to lend their influence and big bucks to MMA, especially since boxing and the brawling aspect of boxing are both important parts of MMA.
