Michael Bisping cleared to train, wants higher-ranked opponent than Tim Kennedy
(mmafighting.com)
Michael Bisping was in a chipper mood on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight on FOX Sports 1. And why shouldn't he be? Bisping, who has been sidelined due to a detached retina, got some good news from the doctor earlier in the day. "I was at the doctors this morning, they've given me the green light to start proper training again," said Bisping. "I've been running and lifting weights for awhile. Now I can get back in the gym and start working on a few things."

Johny Hendricks Says His “Knee is Fine,” Doesn’t Expect to be Sidelined Until 2014
(mmaweekly.com)
ollowing a loss to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167 over the weekend, Johny Hendricks not only ended up on the wrong end of a split decision, he also wound up on the Nevada State Athletic Commission medically suspended list. Hendricks mentioned an issue with his right knee in his post-fight medical examination at the arena, so Nevada officials determined that he needed to go get it cleared by an orthopedic doctor or he would have to sit on the sidelines until May 17, 2014. It’s a common practice for any medical issue a fighter might have that is difficult to fully assess with the limited resources on site after a fight. Hendricks on Wednesday, however, told UFC Tonight, “I played golf today. My knee is fine.”
