Wanderlei Silva vs Chucl Liddell now OFFICIAL!
Dana recently announced it on Spike TV's Scream Awards. And now it is made completely official as of ufc.com Originally this fight was supposed to happen some two years ago, but the PRIDE people wanted in the PRIDE ring and the UFC people wanted it in the UFC's octagon so nothing ended up happening. This could have also happened in the 2003 PRIDE GP but Rampage beat Chuck via second round KO. Then this fight was also supposed to happen at UFC 76 but Wanderlei was just moving into the US so he needed more time to train. When the ufc sent wand him his contract, it had two options, one was fighting in Sept. and the other option was to fight in Dec. And he chose Dec. Now the fight that fight fans have been waiting years for is now just out of reach. It wont be long now... Two of the most dominant champions of the two best MMA organization finally facing off against each other. (For announcement video)

The Spider’s Web – Part Three
Like most fighters and fans, Anderson Silva’s first exposure to mixed martial arts and the UFC came through Royce Gracie, who showed the world that technique and skill could battle on an even playing field with size, strength and speed.

Brock Lesnar - The Road to the Octagon - Part Two
When the news hit the street that Brock Lesnar was about to embark on a career in mixed martial arts, many snickered. Sure, he was a former NCAA Division I National Champion in wrestling, but that was in 2000. This was 2006, and a lot can change in six years.

Brock Lesnar – The Road to the Octagon – Part One
Despite his status as professional wrestling’s reigning superstar - a man who was on national television weekly, and on the covers of magazines and video games - Brock Lesnar always kept an eye on the world of mixed martial arts.

"The Boogeyman" Returns At UFC 79
After nearly a year away from the Octagon, UFC Middleweight Dean "The Boogeyman" Lister today confirmed that he will return to fighting at UFC 79 in December. His opponent will be Jordan Radev. Looking at some of the big names he's been helping train recently (namely Couture & CC), he should have no trouble getting re-acclimated to fighting after a long time away.

Monte Cox: Doing Everything Except Fighting
At M-1 Global's introductory press conference yesterday, Monte Cox stood out because of what he was wearing-a suit. Although he usually doesn't wear one, he's doing everything you wouldn't do in one in MMA except be a fighter. Good article about where he's been and what it took for M-1 to lure him in as well as his plans and hopes for the future. He has some great ideas for the promotion and if it works, it could be another big step forward for MMA.

The Spider Opines: Anderson Silva Talks UFC 77, Future Plans
After his UFC Middleweight Title defense at UFC 77, Champion Anderson Silva spoke with Sherdog about a variety of topics including the fight, his future plans, and some interesting possible matchups down the road. I like the possibility of that Matt Hughes fight later down the road, he couold easily hold his own against Silva.

News From Japan: Legendary Faceoff Set For New Year's Eve
At a press conference earlier today in Tokyo, FEG announced Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Masakatsu Funaki as the first bout for the K-1 Premium 2007 Dynamite!! event on 12/31 in Osaka. This sounds like a bout of legendary proportions, although FEG may have taken a lot of enthusiasm out of this Sunday's HERO's card in Korea with the timing of this announcement.

Emelianenko Ready to Seize Marquee (HL's from Sherdog & MMA Weekly articles)
NEW YORK, Oct. 22 -- During his 34 years working in the entertainment industry, Mitchell Maxwell has seen many contracts. So Vadim Finkelchtein, the Russian manager of Fedor Emelianenko (Pictures), listened to the Broadway show producer when it came time to discuss a deal that was designed to deliver the heavyweight star to the UFC. "I said, as an entertainment guy, you can't have anybody sign this," Maxwell told Sherdog.com following Monday's press conference to officially announce the M-1 Global mixed martial arts organization, for which he now sits as chairman. "It's too one-sided. You can't exploit somebody like this." Highlights from the two articles: - Understand there will be hurdles in marketing Fedor in the US - Wants to fight Randy, but respects him a great deal and wants to be friends with him - Offered to send Fedor to the UFC to fight whoever is champ - Offered UFC champ to fight Fedor for $1 MIL over his UFC deal plus $1MIL win bonus - Expects UFC fighters to jump ship to M-1 when their contracts expire (isn't AA in contract negotiations?)

An Interview With Ken Shamrock: Thoughts on Randy Couture, Dana White, and Upcoming Tryouts
Heavyweight champion Randy Couture isn’t the only UFC Hall of Famer who’s had a falling out with UFC President Dana White. Before the UFC legend abruptly resigned from the UFC earlier this month, Ken Shamrock had his own issues with UFC management. After working to become the biggest name in mixed-martial arts — and becoming perhaps the first MMA superstar to get the sport international recognition — his relationship with the UFC soured to the point of being essentially nonexistent today.
