White supports Siver's UFC 132 win; Bieber, Fertitta felt Wiman rightful victor
(mmajunkie.com)
LAS VEGAS – It just wouldn't be a UFC pay-per-view event if we didn't get to enjoy at least one hotly contested decision, right? At Saturday night's UFC 132 event in Las Vegas, that honor fell to Dennis Siver (19-7 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and Matt Wiman (13-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC), who battled toe-to-toe for 15 minutes in a back-and-forth affair. All three judges ultimately awarded the victory to Siver, and UFC president Dana White said after the event that he agreed with the call. However, White admitted UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta – not to mention mop-haired teen pop star Justin Bieber – believe Wiman may have been jobbed.

Famed Former Chute Boxe Coach Rafael Cordeiro Back with Wanderlei Silva
(mmaweekly.com)
Master Rafael Cordeiro once lead one of the strongest contingents of Brazilian fighters in the world under the Chute Boxe banner in Brazil. Now operating his gym Kings MMA in California, Cordeiro is reuniting with some of the fighters that he once lead at Chute Boxe. Notably, he has been working with former Pride champion Wanderlei Silva, preparing him for his UFC 132 fight on Saturday night against Chris Leben. Cordeiro lead a magical time for Silva, along with the Rua brothers, Mauricio Shogun and Murilo Ninja, and numerous other fighters when they ruled the roost at Pride in Japan. Perhaps some of that magic is back as Cordeiro had Silva training alongside Shogun once again, as well as Fabricio Werdum and many other top tier fighters.

UFC to host event in Japan "this year"
(mmajunkie.com)
LAS VEGAS – The UFC could make its long-awaited return to Japan this year. UFC president Dana White today said that plans are moving forward for for the organization to promote a show in the country, which hasn't hosted a UFC event since UFC 29 way back in 2000. "The rumor is true," said White, who couldn't given any exact details on a date or host venue. "We're going to come to Japan, and probably soon." Just how soon? "This year," he said. White and other officials have long teased the possibility of an upcoming show in Japan, where four pre-Zuffa LLC events took place in Tokyo (twice), Chiba and Yokohama more than a decade ago. Until the past few years, the UFC largely ignored the region. However, in 2009, the UFC amped up its efforts in Asia, signed new TV and Internet deals in Japan, and began serious recruiting of Japanese talent.

Kenny Florian responds to the accusation that his 'Hellbows' could be illegal
(mmamania.com)
Kenny Florian made his 145-pound debut at UFC 131: "Dos Santos vs. Carwin" back on June 11 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Also making its debut in "Hollywood North" were his patented "Hellbows," the razor-sharp elbow strikes that left a trail of leaky skulls throughout the lightweight division, most notably against Sean Sherk at UFC 64 and Joe Lauzon at UFC Fight Night 13. Diego Nunes joined that prestigious list in a unanimous decision loss to "KenFlo" earlier this month, enduring (among other things) a few shots to the dome courtesy of some Bostonian elbow grease.

'Fear Factor' to return to NBC in fall 2011 with Joe Rogan as host
(mmamania.com)
Way before he was the popular color commentator for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Joe Rogan was a struggling stand up comedian and C-level actor on "NewsRadio." His "big break" came in 2001, when he debuted as the host of "Fear Factor," a stunt-oriented reality show on NBC that challenged ordinary people, and couples, to accomplish extraordinary daredevil feats for average (by today's standards) sums on money. On the side Rogan, a mixed martial arts (MMA) enthusiast, was doing play-by-play for a struggling promotion for next to nothing. He was merely a fan, a quasi-popular celebrity, who essentially traded out his talents for the best seat in the house every few weekends.

If UFC Tells Tito Ortiz to Hang Up Gloves After UFC 132, He’ll Call it a Career
(mmaweekly.com)
It was a dark day for former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz when he walked into the UFC offices after his loss to Matt Hamill in October 2010. Once known as the most dominant 205-pound fighter on the planet, Ortiz was in the midst of a three-fight losing streak, and was without a victory since 2006. While the numbers don’t lie, Ortiz kept every fight close and wasn’t finished in those three recent losses, but still hadn’t found the right formula to win. Despite his record, however, Ortiz knew that he had fought his heart out and
