Dana White Promises “A Knockout That Beats Uriah Hall’s” on TUF 19
(cagepotato.com)
As MMA fans, it’s safe to say that we can appreciate a good knockout when we see one. The timing, the precision, the simultaneous grace and utter devastation — these are all factors we take into account when, say, deciding the greatest knockout of the year. But as we are continuously reminded in the aftermath of knockouts like the spinning back kick Uriah Hall hit Adam Cella with on TUF 17, the line between a brilliant knockout and a hard-to-watch knockout is a thin one. As amazing as these displays of technique are to witness, they can often leave a sour taste in one’s mouth when the victim appears to be seriously injured as a result.

(mmafighting.com)
Rodrigo Damm (11-6) is back to the lightweight division. With a 2-1 record under the UFC banner, and coming off a decision victory over Mizuto Hirota, Damm returns to the 155-pound division to face Ivan Jorge (25-3) at UFC Fight Night 36 in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil, on Feb. 15. Forced to cancel a featherweight bout with Hacran Dias on October, Damm blames weight-cutting issues for his decision to cut less weight for his next UFC fights.

UFC 168’s Chris Weidman on first Anderson Silva fight: ‘I don’t think I looked that good’
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman doesn’t have any answers to the questions about which Anderson Silva will show up to Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena Saturday night in UFC 168’s pay-per-view headliner. Will it be the focused Silva with incredibly accurate, one-shot power in his strikes? Or will it be the Silva who goofs around in the cage, taunting and publicly humiliating his foe in front of thousands in attendance and millions more watching at home? To the reigning 185-pound champion, it doesn’t matter which version of “The Spider” walks into the arguably the biggest UFC fight of the year. Weidman is focused purely on which version of himself shows up.

Jessica Eye Fights For Her Father
(ufc.com)
"We just look at things like this where they tell us that we can’t, and we’re like, all right, we’re going to do everything we can to prove them wrong." - Jessica Eye This year will mark a different Christmas for the Eye family, but even as patriarch Randy Eye battles brain cancer, some old habits remain. “Of course my dad has never been Christmas shopping in his life,” said his daughter Jessica. “So he gave me money last night and was like ‘hey, go buy something for your brothers and you. You guys go get yourselves something nice.’” It’s just his way. And through the ups and downs, Jessica Eye, a highly-regarded contender in the UFC women’s bantamweight division, has always been there – if not physically, then always in spirit. And that’s no surprise to anyone that knows the 27-year-old.

Could Phil Davis be fighting Shogun Rua next?
(bloodyelbow.com)
UFC light heavyweight Phil Davis is ready to fight, and his coach said that they'd love it if the opponent was Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. Phil Davis is coming off arguably the biggest win of his career, but it's been over four months since that bout and the light heavyweight still remains unbooked. The college wrestling star defeated Lyoto Machida at UFC 163 to move his record to a stellar 12-1 (NC), and he might very well be facing off with another Brazilian next though - Mauricio Rua.
