Sam Sicilia not released, still with the UFC
Often, it seems, when a fighter gets released he's the last to know. But on rare occasions the fighter gets the last say on his contract status. At least that's what's happened with Sam Sicilia. Initially reported as part of the mass roster trimming on May 8th, Sicilia's manager spoke to MMAWeekly about the news of his fighter's release. "He is not cut. He’s actually still on the roster," Sicilia’s manager, Nima Safapour of Alchemist Management, told MMAWeekly.com on Thursday. "I anticipate for him to be back in the cage probably in the fall sometime."

Cat Zingano and camp say Bryan Caraway intentionally elbowed her in head at TUF 17 Finale weigh-ins
"I genuinely like everyone until I have a reason to dislike them. I saw [Caraway] all week, I smiled and was respectful. I get Miesha and not being bff's fight week, I'm not fighting her to make friends. But as far a corners go, good fights are the product of well coached athletes, with heart & talent. Brian smiled back in my face then elbowed me in the head at weigh-ins. I was pissed. I considered him in that same respect. I am a fighter all the same, but that was dirty and cheap to do to anyone, let alone a girl. They were both in on it, which makes it even more disturbing. If my husband or son ever pulled something like that, I would be their biggest problem. I won't be bullied nor condone it." - Cat
