Aaron Simpson Headed in for Surgery Then to a Drop to Welterweight
(mmaweekly.com)
A cut down to 170 pounds sounds like a pretty good idea to former Arizona State wrestler Aaron Simpson; so he will now officially make the move. Simpson, who fought at the inaugural UFC on Fuel event in Omaha, Neb., in February, lost a decision to Ronny Markes and remarked afterwards that he was considering a move from middleweight to welterweight.

Strikeforce's oft-injured Thomson looks for healthy return, third Melendez fight
(mmajunkie.com)
Josh Thomson would understand if fans have forgotten about him. After all, it's been 15 months since he most recently fought on U.S. soil, and when he did, the crowd wasn't altogether happy with the judges' judgement. Then add in the rest of the time he's spent on the bench nursing this injury or that, and well, even he might have lost track if he were sitting in the stands.

Despite fighters' class, White says nothing good comes from UFC on FX 2 mishap
(mmajunkie.com)
It was a mistake so odd that even UFC president Dana White was left speechless. (Well, relatively.) At the conclusion of this weekend's UFC on FX 2 event in Sydney, Craig Waller, the executive director of the Combat Sports Authority of New South Wales, let White in on an important piece of information: He had miscalculated the scores of the flyweight-tournament bout between Demetrious Johnson (14-2-1 MMA, 2-1-1 UFC) and Ian McCall (11-2-1 MMA, 0-0-1 UFC).

McCall vs. Johnson Announced as Majority Draw at UFC Presser; Rematch Next Month
(mmajunkie.com)
Johnson and McCall fought in an action-packed flyweight-tourney fight. Johnson initially was declared the split-decision winner, and then officials said it was a majority decision for him. But in the post-fight press conference, officials announced a tabulation error resulted in incorrect announcements, and the fight was actually a draw. However, the error was caught too late for the fight to go to what would have been a mandatory sudden-victory fourth round. The fighter now will rematch later this month as the tourney is put on hold. @UFC: Johnson/McCall fight was scored wrong - it was a draw- should have gone to sudden victory round. Dana: "I don't even know what to say" EDIT: It seems that the rematch will be next month, not this month; no more UFC cards are scheduled for March. Because of the error, the fight – which initially was showered in boos by fans who thought McCall had won – will happen again. Currently, the rematch is tentatively slated for April, though clearly frustrated UFC president Dana White said no exact date is set.

SI video profile of Ronda Rousey: 'The Perfect Storm'
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Life gave Ronda Rousey all she could handle when she was born blue and not breathing. Rousey was revived in the operating room, but was later diagnosed with brain damage that hindered her ability to speak coherently until age six. At 8, Rousey's father took his own life after he'd been paralyzed in a sledding accident and then contracted a rare disease that made recovery impossible. Mother Ann Maria, who'd taken up judo when her own mother pushed her out the car door at the local YMCA and told her to go join something, made it a requirement that all her four daughters at least try the sport that had empowered her.

Tim Sylvia offers incredible opportunity for a fan - be in his corner
(outsidethering.net)
There's been lots of hooplah about Sylvia trying to get back into the UFC, but he just did something that I think is pretty badass. In a video to fans, he said if he gets back into the UFC, he'll pick a fan to be in his corner...that's pretty sweet regardless if you love or hate him

Rampage Reveals He Used Testosterone Therapy for Bader Fight
(fightersonlymag.com)
Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson missed weight for his fight with Ryan Bader by an enormous five pounds, something unheard of for the former UFC and Pride champion. Already beset by allegations that he was not taking the fight seriously, the weight-miss was taken as proof positive that he did not care about the bout or respect Bader as an opponent. In the week prior to the fight, Jackson had caused a storm by slamming UFC commentator Joe Rogan. He accused Rogan of biased commentary and said that he always had negative comments to make about Jackson’s techniques and overall game. All in all, the days preceding the fight were not vintage for Jackson. Then the fight itself went 15 minutes and apart from one or two sparks - including a trademark slam - it was something of an anti-climax and Jackson was again criticised - by fans - for displaying a limited repertoire. Stung by this criticism, and unhappy about a few other things, Jackson picked up the phone and told Fighters Only a few home truths which he would like to share with the world.
