link Lawsuits are mounting against Xyience, Inc., and the new posterboy product is Xenergy. Hanging their hopes on an energy drink, they’re trying to save their future. Chuck Liddell is fired up about the mere subject of the company, blurring out the company name during a video of his training shown to hype UFC 71. Chatter coming into Fight News Unlimited points to the company’s failure to honor the last payment of Chuck’s contract as the cause of Liddell’s ire. Deadlines are looming for Xyience to pay other prominent fighters, too. The clock is ticking.

On upsets and title changes
link You've heard a lot about the recent spate of upsets in mixed martial arts, which was punctuated by 4-1 underdog Houston Alexander's devastating 48-second thrashing of Keith Jardine at UFC 71. You haven't heard as much about why these are happening. I've chatted with several people with deep roots in MMA off the record over the past few days. Here are some of their thoughts on why more big-name fighters than ever seem to be going down to defeat:

Are short main events bad for MMA?
link It seems the only people who think UFC 71 was a failure are the sort of mainstream national sports media columnists who never want to take a moment to learn something out of their wheelhouse, and wish mixed martial arts would simply go away.

It’s back to work for Liddell
link If everything had gone as planned -- as it has for his last seven fights, a span of over three years -- Chuck Liddell would be kicking back right now in the midst of one well-earned vacation. Thoughts of training regimens and steamy gyms would be the furthest things from his mind. But it didn’t work out the way the 37-year-old Liddell has grown accustomed. So, instead, the former UFC light heavyweight champ is counting down the hours until he’s right back in the thick of training. The Iceman plans to begin tomorrow -- a good two weeks earlier than he would have had he not lost his title to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson last Saturday night in Las Vegas. “I want to fight as soon as possible,” Liddell said from his home in California. “(Losing) makes you want to get back in there and fight again. It changes stuff a little bit. It makes you want to get back and train.

Five Ounces of Pain: An interview with Urijah Faber
Mixed martial arts has come under greater scrutiny now that it's attracting more mainstream media attention. Pundits who criticize the sport usually resort to the ignorant stereotype that mixed martial artists are Neanderthal-like bar room brawlers who never made it past high school and don't possess any true skill.

StrictlyMMA Preview: IFL Washington
The IFL enters the stretch run of their regular season with this Friday's card at the Everett Events Center in Everett, Washington. This card features matchups between two teams on the verge of playoff qualification and two that are on the verge of elimination. The Los Angeles Anacondas are in the catbird seat in their matchup with the Seattle Tigersharks. The Anacondas need two match wins to clinch a playoff spot outright and one to clinch at least a tie (and their match winning time would make them a good bet to win the tiebreaker). To qualify, the Tigersharks must beat the Anacondas 4-1. A 3-2 victory would put them into the tiebreaker. As we’ll see neither scenario is likely. StrictlyMMA.com
