Not all Pride fighters struggle in the UFC
“I have no idea why some are struggling to adjust. With Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, he just made one mistake and ran into Heath Herring’s leg. That is a big leg so it is going to take some steam out of you. Nog recovered well and I think that other than that kick he dominated the rest of the fight. At the same time Quinton Jackson and Anderson Sylva in my eyes are PRIDE fighters. So you could say that PRIDE owns two belts in the UFC right now. Both of those guys fought almost all their fights and made their name in PRIDE. They are PRIDE fighters. It is easy to throw a UFC label on Jackson because he is American. He only fought one fight in the cage with WFA before he went to the UFC.”

The following is the complete OFFICIAL fight card for UFC 77 "Hostile Territory" according to UFC.com: Main PPV Card: -Anderson Silva (c) vs. Rich Franklin (UFC MW Title) -Tim Sylvia vs. Brandon Vera -Stephan Bonnar vs. Eric Schafer -Kalib Starnes vs. Alan Belcher Prelim Card: -Yushin Okami vs. Jason MacDonald -Jorge Gurgel vs. Alvin Robinson -Josh Burkman vs. Forrest Petz -Jason Black vs. Matt Grice
Thats really weird cos Jensen was heavily rumored to be replacing Eastman to fight Meia, though they make no mention its the FULL card on ufc.com like they say here so i expect that fight TBA as a prelim as well Its surprising the Okami Macdonald fight isnt main card, even tho im sure it will be boring its between 2 top MW's whilst the Bonnar Schafer fight isvery far down the list and pretty unexciting to me

Wanderlei Silva - The Return of The Axe Murderer - Part I & 2
When the word “legendary” precedes your name, it can sometimes be a license to forget where you came from, to avoid the people who supported you through the lean times, and to look down from your ivory tower as a different person than the one you started out as. After dropping a five round decision to Tito Ortiz at UFC 25 in April of 2000, the then-23 year old Wanderlei Silva was at a crossroads in his mixed martial arts career. He had left Japan’s PRIDE organization (where he was 3-0) to take a world title shot in the UFC, but having lost, he was a man without a venue to fight in.

The Tito Ortiz Charade: Playing New Games
In the latest chapter of the saga that is Tito Ortiz, the "bad boy" of the UFC has seemingly caused multiple rumors to be released onto the Internet as to who he will be fighting next in the UFC. The presumption was that he would rematch Rashad Evans due to the draw that occured between the two at the UFC 73: Stacked because of a Tito Ortiz fence grab that ultimately caused the scores to be even at the end of the bout.

The Big Diesel becoming The Big MMA?
Although he likely won't quit his day job as the NBA Miami Heat's starting center, Shaquille O'Neal spent the summer offseason doing some MMA training. Likely will never make it to UFC or any MMA promotion for that matter, but it would be fun to see him bring some Diesel Power to the sport. He certainly would guarantee packed arenas.

Former UFC Champion Checks Into Celebrity Rehab
Former UFC HW Champion Ricco Rodriguez, coming off a loss in the IFL Championship Finals, has been chosen to appear on "Celebrity Rehab", a weekly reality series debuting in January '08 on the cable network VH1. I'm a bit skeptical about this just because it's a TV deal even though it's supposedly a legit rehab thing, some of those celebrities he'll be with might not be the best people for him to go through rehab with.
