Liddell should answer all questions on Saturday night
Chuck Liddell is undoubtedly the most popular mixed martial artist in the UFC. And only a short time ago, he was viewed by many as the most dominant 205-lb champion in UFC history.

Kurt Angle: "God Willing, IFL & Myself Can Make A Deal"
Former WWE & Current TNA Wrestling Champion Kurt Angle was in attendance at last night's IFL Finals and claimed to be talking to the promotion about joining. Angle has been wanting to get into MMA for some time now, with most rumors suggesting he wants to fight fellow wrestling standout Brock Lesnar. It's getting pretty hard to take him seriously on these now. His claims of needing a year to prepare make him a bad short-term investment, plus he's getting up there in age and already has serious injury risks lingering from his wrestling years. He could also be posturing here, using IFL as a bargaining chip to try and get a better offer from UFC or other rival suitors. I could see him helping IFL but at this point in time they shouldn't take this risk.

UFN 11 Medical Suspensions Announced
The NSAC has posted the official UFN 11 results online, which includes the medical suspensions for the participants as well. Interesting that at least one fighter from all but one fight was suspended. Sometimes these reveal more about potential injuries suffered than we see or read about, that seemed to be the case again last night.

City Of Vancouver Bans MMA
MMA fans in Vancouver, BC, Canada will now have to go elsewhere to get their MMA fix. MMA won't be sanctioned in the city anymore, effective today. This probably will affect the smaller promotions the most, although I can see it as a small setback to UFC's plans to expand up north even though right now their primary commitment seems to be to Montreal.

UFC Fight Night 11 Salaries
I am very surpised, everyone got paid a fair amount in my eyes. Good job UFC! I found it weird that Nate Diaz's got paid so much for his second fight. Props to him for winning that contract.

The Fate Or Future Of The IFL
Speculation on the financial health of the International Fight League is rampant. Depending on the source, the first-of-its-kind mixed martial arts team-based league is either on the verge of collapse or thriving. The problem with such speculation is that almost none of it is rooted in fact. But required financial documents filed last month by the IFL shows that it might have as little as 6 months left to live right now. I think they're doing some good things and they've made some right moves, but they've probably gone too far forward too fast in other areas, and it's resulted in them taking on more than they can handle. Hopefully they can still turn the ship around as it seems they have time to, if done properly they can still become a viable competitor to UFC for a nice slice of the MMA pie.

Nate Quarry is no longer with team Quest.
http://www.sherdog.com/news/articles.asp?n_id=9100 The article said : Team Quest captain Matt Lindland (Pictures) wouldn't give a detailed account of Quarry's departure, but he did say via text message that he feels Quarry is just a sad, angry guy. "Nate Quarry's ability to understand business arrangements is commensurate with his ability to avoid Rich Franklin (Pictures)'s left hand," Lindland said. That is the harshest thing I've heard in a while. It sounds like he is a handfull. I wonder who's camp he will end up in.

Liddell and Jardine Start Long Road To the Top
For Chuck Liddell, the road back to the top has to start somewhere. One minute, the former UFC light-heavyweight champion was riding high, figuratively floating to the octagon on the adulation of the crowd; the next he was hitting the canvas after his opponent literally knocked him into near-unconsciousness.

Judging MMA vs. Boxing
It was barely four months ago and when Roger Mayweather-Oscar De La Hoya was being billed as the "fight that would save boxing," any right-thinking boxing fan shook his head and passed off the notion as absurd.

Has the UFC’s Collective Ego Cost Them Big Bucks?
Nothing sells in combat sports like a rivalry. If there’s a hometown hero to root for then you’re really talking big bucks. With that said, aside from the fact we’ll never see another Pride event, are the UFC missing a trick by promoting the Pride brand so minimally?

"JZ" Repeats as K-1 HERO'S Champ
YOKOHAMA, Japan, Sept. 17 -- K-1's 2007 HERO'S middleweight tournament saw its concluding chapter this evening at the Yokohama Arena, where American Top Team's "JZ Calvan" Gesias Calvancanti (Pictures) took the top spot once again, defeating two fellow Brazilians in "Dida" Andre Amade (Pictures) and the vaunted "Shaolin" Vitor Ribeiro (Pictures). Sergei Kharitonov (Pictures) avenged his PRIDE loss to Alistair Overeem (Pictures) by KO in the first after an exciting round of back-and-forth stand-up action. With the striking favoring the Dutchman in the earlier portion of the fight, Overeem was able to tag Kharitonov with hard low kicks, winging right hooks, and stiff jabs.
