In search for life after fighting, Danny Downes remakes himself as an MMA writer
(mmajunkie.com)
Danny Downes got the news in a text message. He'd been expecting it, and he thought he was ready for it, but he thought wrong. This was the fall of 2011, a little more than a month after his second loss in as many attempts with the UFC. Before that he'd gone 1-1 in the WEC, beating the much-hyped Chinese import Tiequan Zhang via unanimous decision in the organization's final event. But 0-2 in the UFC? "Danny Boy" could do the math. He knew he was likely on the chopping block, but the UFC's upcoming event in his hometown of Chicago that January gave him some faint hope. Maybe they'd keep him around for that.

Attila Vegh situation 'taken out of context'
(mmafighting.com)
The saga between light heavyweight contender Attila Vegh and Bellator over whether or not Vegh was being replaced for his upcoming bout with Emanuel Newton due to an injury or a "business decision" was nothing more than a miscommunication, according to Bellator's CEO Bjorn Rebney. Vegh was slated to fight Newton at Bellator 106 in Long Beach, Calif., which will mark Bellator's foray into the pay-per-view market. Things got murky when he was replaced with Muhammed Lawal, who was knocked out by Newton back in July 2012 in his promotional debut. Lawal, of course, has more star power than Vegh, and a rematch with Newton translates into better intrigue, especially with the interim belt hanging in the balance...

Dan Henderson not worried about Vitor Belfort’s TRT: I beat him when he was on steroids
(mmafighting.com)
Both fighters are using the testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) for their fights, but "Hendo" doesn’t believe it’s fair since the Brazilian got caught in the past. "It doesn’t bother me, it is what it is," Henderson told MMAFighiting.com on Wednesday. "That’s an issue with the commission.
