Dana White 'done' giving Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira fights, will offer him UFC job
“I love ‘Big Nog,’ and I think everybody loves ‘Big Nog,'” White said. “He’s such a good guy. He’s respected by everybody, and he and I actually talked tonight. I’m done. I don’t want to see him fight anymore. He doesn’t disagree. “He and I are going to get together, and we’re going to talk. I’m probably going to give him the Chuck Liddell, Matt Hughes and Forrest Griffin deal. I’m going to bring him in and make him an employee.”

Coach: Ronda Rousey would win the women's boxing world title
Ronda Rousey was an Olympic medal-winning judoka with little striking experience before stepping into Glendale Fighting Club. There, she has become a dangerous boxer with knockout power. Just ask Alexis Davis. Rousey's hands have become so good that her coach, Edmond Tarverdyan, said she has never lost a round against female boxers at the gym.

Benson Henderson nearing clean bill of health, wants return at UFC Seoul
Benson Henderson isn't yet ready to return, but he's getting close. The former UFC lightweight champion is "on the verge" of being medically cleared from the injury he suffered in May, MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani reported Wednesday on UFC Tonight. Henderson (22-5) has been sidelined since removing his name from a planned bout against Michael Johnson at The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale. Henderson attributed the withdrawal to injury, but repeatedly declined to elaborate on the nature of the damage, stating only that "it was in [the] area" of his eye.
