(mmafighting.com)
The antitrust lawsuit filed against the UFC refers to the other MMA organizations in the United States, namely Bellator, as minor leagues. Spike TV president Kevin Kay takes umbrage with that depiction. "I don't think we're a minor league at all," Kay told MMAFighting.com recently at an event to promote Premier Boxing Champions on Spike. "That's just lawyers talking. They have to position stuff a certain way."

UFC: Report of pay withheld from Anderson Silva after drug test failure 'not true'
(mmajunkie.com)
A report Sunday evening by Brazilian media outlet Veja.com stated the UFC had withheld a payment of nearly $6 million to Anderson Silva after his failed pre-UFC 183 drug test. The report claimed the withheld money was Silva’s (34-6 MMA, 17-2 UFC) $600,000 fight purse, $200,000 win bonus and the money he made off of his pay-per-view “points,” or percentage of PPV revenue, for the Jan. 31 pay-per-view fight, where the former longtime middleweight champion returned from a 13-month layoff to earn a decision win over former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz (26-10 MMA, 7-7 UFC). It's so unlike Brazilian websites to post lies Edit: For some reason when I post from my iPad the links never work. Sorry about that it's the first story on junkie.
