Brian Bowles fails UFC 160 drug test due to elevated T/E levels
(mmajunkie.com)
The Nevada State Athletic Commission has temporarily suspended Brian Bowles after saying he tested positive for elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone levels following his loss at UFC 160. NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer today informed MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the bantamweight came back with an T/E ratio of more than 20-to-1. The commission's official limit is 6-to-1. Kizer said Bowles hadn't applied for a therapeutic-use exemption for testosterone-replacement therapy prior to the event. The fighter declined comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.com today.

Couture: Getting banned from son's UFC corner was 'over the line'
(mmajunkie.com)
Randy Couture knew his decision to join forces with the UFC's largest competitor wouldn't be welcome news to UFC President Dana White. A certain amount of backlash was, he figured, to be expected. What the former UFC champ didn't expect, he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was that it would get him barred from working his son's corner at future UFC events. "In my opinion, that's over the line," said Couture, whose left his role as a UFC commentator in order to sign with former UFC broadcast partner Spike TV. The decision led to him being effectively banned from son Ryan's corner when the younger Couture made his octagon debut at the UFC on FUEL TV 9 event in April. Now that the elder Couture is gearing up for the June 19 premiere of Spike TV's "Fight Master" reality show, where he'll serve as one of four coaches, the retired MMA legend said he has no regrets about his decision to leave his UFC gig for a more visible role with Spike TV and Bellator MMA. If anything, he said, White's verbal tirades in the media only increased "Fight Master's" public profile.

Roy Jones Jr. accepts Anderson Silva's challenge
(mmamania.com)
It was years ago when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight titleholder Anderson Silva first expressed interest in crossing over to the boxing ring to challenge former world champion Roy Jones Jr. "The Spider" has a couple of professional boxing fights under his belt and despite his one-of-a-kind accomplishments in mixed martial arts (MMA), jumping over to face one of the best boxers ever was viewed as a pipedream. Silva's interest in fighting Jones Jr. --at least in the public eye-- died down over the next few years. That is until the Brazilian rehashed the subject in a recent interview with the New York Post. ""I think everyone's got something they're focused on and that's my own desire, something I'd like to do," said Silva. "Maybe one day when I'm done my UFC career, I will box Roy Jones."

Dan Henderson: Jon Jones is 'not genuine'
(mmafighting.com)
BURBANK, Calif. -- Dan Henderson remains among the list of fighters who consider Jon Jones something a bit different than how he presents himself in public. The 42-year-old former PRIDE and Strikeforce champion was making media rounds in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday, promoting his upcoming UFC 161 main event bout against Rashad Evans, when he was asked if he'd rather fight Jon Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, or cut back down to middleweight and get a rematch with Anderson Silva. "I'd like to fight Jon Jones more than I'd like to fight Anderson Silva," said Henderson. "Just because I have less respect for him as a person than Anderson. He's not genuine. I think how he portrays himself is not how he really is. I think the fans have picked up on how he really is, as well."

(mmajunkie.com)
While Jon Fitch (24-5-1) said he's thoroughly committed to the World Series of Fighting, he has options if the promotion doesn't keep him busy.
