UFC 155's Jamie Varner anticipates April return, four opponents on radar
(mmajunkie.com)
Jamie Varner said Rafael Dos Anjos, Ross Pearson, Matt Wiman and T.J. Grant are among the fighters he's looking at for his next octagon appearance. The former WEC champ anticipates an injured thumb will keep him from meeting one of them until April, but his only preference is that he moves closer to title contention. "I think Dos Anjos is on a streak, so he may be on my radar more so than anyone else," Varner told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "But Grant, I've been hearing his name pop up a lot, as well."

Bellator announces Rad Martinez vs. Shahbulat Shamhalaev tournament final February 21
(bloodyelbow.com)
Bellator is full speed ahead on their upcoming debut season on Spike TV, with a constant stream of quality fight announcements. The latest is a bit of unfinished business from the recently completed season 7. On February 21, Bellator will hold their season 7 Featherweight tournament final of Rad Martinez vs. Shahbulat Shamhalaev. This fight was originally scheduled for Bellator 83 in December, but had to be scrapped at the last minute due to a Shamhalaev illness. Notable about this show is that it will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, close to Martinez's Utah home. Bellator is big on taking advantage of hometown crowds, and placing this fight in Utah should mean a very rabid and partisan crowd. Martinez is a pretty amazing story, putting together a 14-2 record (4-0 in Bellator) while also taking care of his paraplegic father. He's shown amazing guts and drive throughout the tournament, and it will be great to see him in front of a hometown crowd.

All UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2 fighters pass post-fight drug tests
(bloodyelbow.com)
After a slow start to the pay-per-view, UFC 155 delivered two of the most dramatic fights in recent memory. In the co-main event Lightweight Joe Lauzon poured blood out of his forehead for 13 minutes of his 3 round decision loss to Jim Miller. Then, to cap off the show, Junior Dos Santos gave up the Heavyweight title and his undefeated record after a one-sided beating from Cain Velasquez. On Friday, Nevada State Athletic Commission director Keith Kizer alerted media that every fighter on the card passed their post-fight drug screenings. Counting The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale, this is the second consecutive UFC event where all the competitors in an event were tested. It's also the second event where every fighter passed.

Mike Goldberg denies rehab rumors, hopes to return for UFC On Fox 6
(bloodyelbow.com)
I'm doing well," he said. "Those rumors out there are not true. I'm dealing with a complicated health issue but feeling better and hoping to be back to 100 percent by Jan. 26 (UFC on FOX 6 in Chicago). See you soon." Ariel Helweni followed up with a more detailed description of the health issues Goldberg may be facing: However, according to multiple sources close to Goldberg, who all asked to remain anonymous, the broadcaster suffered from a severe upper respiratory infection in October. The already-asthmatic Goldberg was then treated with large doses of medication to open the airway and treat the infection. Goldberg's doctor later confirmed that the medication taken to treat the infection in combination with his normal asthma medication caused severe side effects that affected his ability to work, which according to the same sources, was the reason he missed UFC 155. Goldberg is currently being treated to get his health back on track and is approaching a full recovery.

Jim Miller targets Gray Maynard rematch following triumphant UFC 155 win
(mmajunkie.com)
Now that he's dispatched Joe Lauzon, Jim Miller would like to fight the man who was supposed to be in his shoes at UFC 155. That's Gray Maynard, who previously handed Miller his first loss in the UFC octagon. "It will be four years ago in March," Miller told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "To assume it would be a similar fight would be kind of ignorant to what we're capable of as fighters."
