Cro Cop Returns
What I’ve learned from my friendship with Mirko Cro Cop is that you can never be sure what he is up to. He prefers to keep his thoughts for himself; he’s always been a man of a few words. His absence in the media often results in completely misleading stories, coming from people who are giving their best shot in evaluating Mirko’s position and the nature of his future plans....

Ultimate Mayweather
Telling the media that he had "accomplished all that I could as a fighter" following his Dec. 8 bout with Ricky Hatton, Floyd Mayweather intimated that he would be happy to retire with a perfect 39-0 record and the unofficial title of best pound-for-pound boxer on the planet. But if Mark Cuban is to be believed, the 30-year-old pugilist has a prescient sense of history and wants to add one more chapter to his inevitable self-congratulatory autobiography -- Mayweather could become the first boxer in his career prime to risk hyper-extended ligaments in a mixed martial arts contest. Mayweather, Cuban said, will be involved in some capacity with the billionaire's fledging HDNet Fights promotion and will visit MMA gyms in the coming months to gauge his interest in an open-style fight.

If true, this is very interesting to me as i saw this as a step down for Kongo anyways. Who y'all think they will have to replace McCully in this fight? I know its wishful thinking but it seems like a good opportunity for the Ufc to get "The Pitbull" on the "supposed" CBS card!

Year-end MMA a Japanese tradition (story from Yahoo! Sports)
Unless you understand the Japanese fighting culture, the New Year’s Eve match-up that pits Fedor Emelianenko, the Yahoo! Sports No. 1 pound-for-pound mixed martial arts fighter in the world, against the 7-2 1/2, 355 pound “Techno Goliath,” Choi Hong-man of South Korea, would seem to make no sense. But MMA fighting in Japan is part of a world of fantasy, where key promoters idolize World Wrestling Entertainment chief Vince McMahon and learn from Japanese pro wrestling organizations. Almost the only reality of MMA in Japan is what happens between the bell. On no night is that more evident than New Year’s Eve, which has, over the past seven years, become a cultural tradition as the biggest fighting night of the year.

Wandy and Chuck articles at Foxsports
Just thought I'd throw these articles in the mix... They have a little bit of fighter interviews in there, but it's more just hype for the fight... Got me a little fired up, so enjoy... Also nice to see that Fox sports has an entire section labeled MMA (and that's where they hide their boxing stuff too ) Sorry if the stuff's already been posted, I don't usually post in the news forum
