UFC's Dana White: I don't know why Anderson Silva likes to f--- with the media
Middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva claims he doesn't even have Dana White's digits, let alone the desire to lobby for a fight with Jon Jones. During a media teleconference today in support of UFC 162, Silva denied that he called the UFC president post-UFC 159 to request his next opponent, which White then hinted to be the light-heavy champ. "I think everyone already knows that I didn't call Dana," Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) said. "I don't even have his phone number personally." That's news to White, who today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Silva did call him following the April 27 event in Newark, N.J. "I don't know why he loves to f--- with the media," said White. "Ask (Anthony) Pettis if he called me that night (after UFC 156). Jones said he didn't tell me he wanted to HURT Chael (Sonnen), but he did. I think the guys don't like that I tell the media everything. Roy Nelson and his wife don't like it either."

Tito Ortiz Questions Bonnar's Hall of Fame Status
and I quote: "As far as Stephan, I have nothing against the guy, but you've got to be a world champion, I think, to be in the Hall of Fame ... That's a big honor to be in the Hall of Fame," Ortiz said to MMA Junkie. "It means you had a significance in the sport at one time or another. You look at that, and the Forrest and Stephan fight was a big step for the UFC, so do they deserve it? Possibly. But can one fight get you in the Hall of Fame? I don't know. I guess that's Dana's decision."

To MMA or not to MMA? An Olympic wrestler weighs his options
Dodging puddles in an unpaved parking lot on a rainy June afternoon, Jake Herbert attempted to put his career dilemma in the simplest terms possible. Not an easy task, considering the gravity of the choices that lay in front of the 28-year-old Olympian and two-time NCAA freestyle wrestling national champ. On one hand, there are the 2016 Games to think about. On the other, there's the potential to make a lot more money beating up other men in a cage as a professional MMA fighter. And behind door number three? "That's the thing," Herbert said and cocked his head with a shy smile. "I actually studied at Northwestern." This is the problem Herbert faces, though it's a good problem, all things considered. The time is coming where he is going to have to choose a path. The choice he makes could say a lot about MMA's ability to appeal to qualified outsiders, and also about wrestling's enduring hold even at a time of turmoil on the international scene. At the heart of that choice is a question that's interested me for a long time, as someone who writes about and loves this sport, yet sometimes can't understand what compels certain people to do it...

Bellator "Summer Series" features two events instead of typical three
Instead of three events during its annual "Summer Series," Bellator MMA this year will host just two. Sources close to the promotion confirmed that plan to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) not long after its first event of the summer, Bellator 96, which took place this past Wednesday at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla. Bellator 97 takes place July 31 at Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, N.M., near Albuquerque, but there will not be an August event. Instead, the promotion simply will roll into the start of its ninth season, which opens Sept. 7 with what will be Bellator 98...
