Dan Henderson Hopes to Defend Strikeforce Belt, Eventually Meet UFC Champion
(mmafighting.com)
Dan Henderson has a knack for big performances at contract time: In 2007, he knocked out Wanderlei Silva at Pride 33, becoming a two-division champion and positioning himself to get a lucrative deal when the UFC purchased Pride. Two years ago, he knocked out Michael Bisping at UFC 100, scoring the biggest highlight on the UFC's biggest stage and positioning himself to get a lucrative deal when Strikeforce decided to bid for his services. And now Henderson is preparing to fight Fedor Emelianenko in the final fight of his Strikeforce contract -- a fight that could position Henderson to negotiate a new deal with Strikeforce's new parent company Zuffa, owners of the UFC. But while a win over Emelianenko could launch Henderson directly into a UFC pay-per-view main event, Henderson says his preference is to stick with Strikeforce.

Former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ Finalist Andre Winner Released from the UFC
(mmaweekly.com)
The cluttered UFC lightweight division is a brutal place to work following the integration of the WEC roster, and inevitably there will be cuts based on performance and results. The latest lightweight to have been released is British Rough House fighter Andre Winner who exits the promotion following his loss to Anthony Njokuani at UFC 132 – it marks his third in a row.

If victorious at Shark Fights 17, Jake Rosholt hopes for return to the UFC
(mmajunkie.com)
Jake Rosholt has been fighting professionally for four years and has seen his fair share of ups and downs during his still-young career. The three-time national-champion Oklahoma State wrestler had a short stint with the UFC in which he went 1-2 and was released in late 2009. Add neck surgery to repair two herniated disks to the list, and it's safe to assume that Rosholt's best days are still in ahead of him. Rosholt (11-3) returns to action for the sixth time in 2011 when he meets Matt Horwich (26-18-1) at Friday's Shark Fights 17 event, which airs live on HDNet from Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas. There, he looks to avenge his lone loss since exiting the UFC.

Refferee's DANGEROUS mistake in Kim Couture fight
(mmamania.com)
If you guys haven't see this outrage, you should. The video of this incompetant referee in this fight is included, as is the step by step photo documentation of this. The choke is applied at 1:59 of the video. Kim couture appears to be out at 2:07. She's CLEARLY UNCONSCIOUS at 2:11. THe Ref stops the fight at 2:19. Quite frankly, she's lucky to walk out with such an idiotic, ignorant ref working this fight. This guy should NEVER work another fight again. He should NEVER have another human's well-being in his hands ever again. For the record, it was a slick scissors choke. Plus, it shows that Kimmy Doesn't have much of a future in MMA...But both of those things get overshadowed by this buffoon. Seriously, check it out

Pat Barry: I lost better than anybody.
(mixedmartialarts.com)
"I was hitting [Kongo] and then all of a sudden I opened my eyes and I thought I won. That was the first thing out of my mouth was, 'Yo, we got him.'" "I also didn't know I was lying on my back. I thought I was standing face-to-face with him. So when the doctor said, 'Can you try to sit up for me?' I looked at him like, how am I going to sit up when I'm already standing? That doesn't even make sense. You're the worst doctor in the world. You should be fired."

A kinder, gentler Chael Sonnen talks Brian Stann.
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Chael Sonnen's uspension from the California State Athletic Commission expired this week. As soon as he was clear to fight again, the 34-year-old was back to his ways — calling out fighters and injecting himself into the fray as soon as possible, seemingly making up for lost time. But while he has been callous and combative in other interviews, it was a more genuine, less venomous Sonnen who answered reporter Megan Olivi's questions.

All Fighters Pass UFC 132 Drug Tests, Nevada to Restart Out-of-Competition Testing
(bloodyelbow.com)
All 15 fighters that were tested for drug by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the UFC 132 card have come back clean, according to Executive Director Keith Kizer in a statement put out by the commission. This means they passes a test for performance enhancing and recreational drugs. The fighters that were tested include main eventers Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber, co-main eventers Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben, Tito Ortiz, Ryan Bader, Carlos Condit, Dennis Siver, Melvin Guillard, Shane Roller, Rafael Dos Anjos, Brian Bowles, Aaron Simpson, Anthony Njokuani and Jeff Hougland. In other news, an infusion of cash has also allowed Nevada to begin out-of-competition testing again, according to Kizer in an interview with Brett Okamoto of ESPN: The commission has had the authority to randomly test its athletes since 2008, but financial restrictions have limited its ability to do so since 2009. That changed last month, when Gov. Brian Sandoval signed into law a bill that will feed close to $200,000 into the state's program during the next two years. "We have the money this month, so I would be surprised if we didn't do some tests in July," Keith Kizer, executive director of NSAC, told ESPN.com. "Each test runs right around $200, so when it's all said and done, we'll test a pretty good chunk."

(bloodyelbow.com)

Torres was the WEC bantamweight champ from February 2008 to August 2009 and was a staple of top 10 pound-for-pound lists. Now both men are coming off losses in the UFC's bantamweight division. Faber lost a unanimous decision to champion Dominick Cruz at UFC 132 and Torres dropped a decision to Demetrious Johnson at UFC 130.
