Gabriel Gonzaga vs Shane Carwin at UFC 96
FiveOuncesOfPain.com can exclusively report that a heavyweight clash between former heavyweight title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga and former NCAA Division II wrestling champion Shane Carwin is now set to take place. Gonzaga is 10-3 and trains out of Team Link in Massachusetts. The jiu-jitsu black belt’s most high-profile fight took place at UFC 74 in August of 2007 when he lost to then-UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture via third round TKO. Following the loss to Couture, the native Brazilian then suffered a second round TKO defeat at the hands of Fabricio Werdum at UFC 80 last January. However, since that time, Gonzaga has once again begun to climb the championship ladder with consecutive wins.

Shileds Wants UFC & GSP
Top ranked welterweight Jake Shields is tired of waiting and wondering. He wants job stability, and more importantly, to establish himself as the world’s best. “I’m just sick of not knowing when I'm going to fight,” he told MMAWeekly.com. In recent months, Shields has had anything but stability. Since the financial woes of ProElite virtually closed the organization and put a lock down on communications with its fighters, Shields has been in the dark about his future.

Legendary Nogueira far from finished
If there’s a secret regarding the legendary durability of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, it might be his vivid memory. The former PRIDE heavyweight champion, who has fought some of the biggest and baddest men in the sport in 37 professional fights, has never been stopped, even though he’s spent plenty of time getting pounded and been in situations often that would have stopped virtually all competitors.

Badr Hari is stripped of his K-1 heavyweight title
Sportsnoavi reported about FEG's press conference in Tokyo on December 17. In the conference, FEG announced the penalties against Badr Hari's action in K-1 World GP 2008 on December 6. Sadaharu Tanikawa K-1 event producer: “After having a meeting with Nobuaki Kakuda rule director, judges and FEG, we decided to give him the heaviest penalties in K-1 history. He is stripped of his heavyweight title and not paid for his participation in K-1 World GP. We don't suspend his license in K-1 because our current rules don't allow us to do that. We are going to modify the rules to allow for suspensions starting 2009. We take back our plan of offering him fights in Dynamite and K-1 event in March. We haven't reached a decision when he comes back. We expect a lot from him. We hope he gets mentally stronger, and regain the title of K-1 champion someday.” Badr Hari accepted the FEG's decision and made an apology for his action. “I'm sorry that my action disappointed my fans. I truly regret what I did. I hope I can come back to K-1 ring soon.” Tanikawa also commented about Satoshi Ishii. “I'm very disappointed to hear his decision of challenging to the UFC. If he hasn't contracted with them yet, I don't give up. I will try to convince him to stay in Japan. It's great for him to pursue his dream, but he is too good to let go easily.”

Frank Mir on the difference between beating Brock and possibly Minotauro
“Beating Nogueira would be so significant to me, because of who he is. He’s a legend in our sport. Whether he wins or loses his next fight, he’s the Minotauro. Brock hasn’t earned that yet. Brock’s not a legend in our sport. He’s not even an icon in our sport yet. He’s an entertainer who is famous and who’s had a slight amount of success in our sport with two wins. Nogueira, I don’t have to say anything else about him. Just say his name and you get a reaction, you see the respect. Anyone who knows even a little bit about this sport knows what he’s about.”
