Steve Bosse Gets Matchup with Thiago Santos at TUF: Brazil 4 Finale
(sherdog.com)
Steve Bosse was the odd man out when a New Jersey judge overturned a preliminary injunction that would have banned Quinton Jackson from competing at UFC 186. Bosse had agreed to replace Jackson and face Fabio Maldonado at the April 25 event when it appeared as though “Rampage” would not make the date. Instead, the 33-year-old Canadian will make his Octagon debut at "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4" finale against Thiago Santos on June 27.

Diego Sanchez plans featherweight move, eyes Guida, Lamas, McGregor and UFC history
(mmajunkie.com)
With a broken collarbone mended, Diego Sanchez (25-7 MMA, 14-7 UFC) is itching to return to the cage, and if things go according to plan, he’ll be doing it in the featherweight division. “I’m going down to 145,” Sanchez said on the latest edition of “The MMA Road Show” with John Morgan. “I think there’s some great fights down there at 145. Even right away, I’m going to be a force in the divison – right away. And I know all the 145-pounders are, ‘Oh, that’s if you make weight. If Diego can make weight.’ That’s what they’re going to be saying. But, you know what? I’m going to do it. I’m going to make weight, and I’m going down to this division.”

UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock Pens Open Letter to Jon Jones
(mmaweekly.com)
"Hi Jon: Few others can understand the enticement of the lust of life when the world says “yes” to your every desire. At these times, anything you want is at your fingertips: free meals, expensive gifts, amazing opportunities, big sponsorships, money, girls, and just about every desire being met on demand. One day, everything changes. Speaking from experience, the decisions we make eventually catches up to us. These consequences, from the seeds that we have sown, are very real and seldom easy to deal with. Fame is often a road paved with heartbreak. It’s a black hole that has the ability to engulf a distracted soul. Unfortunately, you must sleep in the bed that you made. You did this to yourself, and you have issues that need to be dealt with. It’s important that you understand that all your troubles today are a bi-product of your actions. Once you truly understand this, then you can begin to heal what has been broken and move forward once again........"

FOX Legal Rep. Says Jones Could Be in Jail For 3 Years
(bjpenn.com)
Well really, the next step is up to the prosecution. They have to decide whether to go in front of the grand jury and get the indictment. But given that it seems clear what this guy did and that there are so many witnesses to it, I think it’s inevitable there will be an indictment. What could be happening is his lawyers trying to get a plea bargain from the prosecutors.”
