Pellegrino Not Retiring, Wants "Big" Fight In December
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC lightweight Kurt Pellegrino raised the stakes prior to his most recent fight when he said he'd retire with a loss to George Sotiropoulos this past Saturday at UFC 116. But after re-injuring his left knee in the first round of the fight and dropping a unanimous decision, Pellegrino is adamant that he won't hang it up. Doctors today informed Pellegrino that he re-tore the meniscus in his left knee, which was first injured in a fight against Fabricio Camoes at UFC 111. On Friday, Pellegrino will arrange a date to repair the damage and said he will take his time before he returns to the gym. Still, he is already angling to get back inside the octagon by year's end.

Ask the Fight Doc: What caused Shane Carwin's body to seize up at UFC 116?
(mmajunkie.com)
Adrenaline dumping is a very popular phrase in the worlds of fitness and combat sports. It truly is not common medical terminology. The phrase appears to be used to describe some of the characteristics associated with a surge of epinephrine (adrenaline) released during extreme physical exertion (sports and/or fighting). An epinephrine surge prepares the body for the classic fight-or-flight scenario: significant increase in heart rate, rapid breathing, glucose surge in blood for energy, heightened awareness, sweating, etc. It is interesting to note that this is the same physiology involved in an anxiety attack.

Frank Mir's Goals For 2011: Retire Nogueira And KO Lesnar
(mmamania.com)
2 goals that boxing guru Jimmy Clifford thinks are attainable in comments made to The Las Vegas Sun. "We believe Mir is going to be the guy to knock out Brock Lesnar. Me, GSP, Freddie Roach - we all agreed Mir can do it. We see holes in his game we know we can expose. If you're asking me who would Frank Mir want to fight right now, it's Brock. He'd love to fight him. Realistically, that's not going to happen so we want that Nog fight. Nog claims staph infection affected his chin in the last one. I don't know how that happens, but I think if Mir gets a chance at Nogueira again, he'll knock him out early and retire him. Right now, he's at 252 and his best fighting weight is between 240 and 245 pounds. He's not going to stay at 265 to fight Brock again ... In Mir's mind, it's about martial arts vs. this big gorilla who really is just a big gorilla."

"We're going to make an example of James Toney." The upcoming fight between former UFC champion Randy Couture and current IBA heavyweight champion James Toney, according to UFC president Dana White, is being set-up as a freak show, to see what happens when a boxer steps in with a mixed martial artist. James Toney was a guest on MMAWeekly Radio on Wednesday night and heard about White's comments for the first time. Not surprisingly, he had a few words on the subject. "Give him the message, tell Dana White to excuse these nuts," said Toney. "I'm going to make an example out of him and his fighters."

Anderson Silva Will Beat Chael Sonnen Like A Child And Shut His Mouth
(mmamania.com)
So says the latest 3rd party to jump into the pre-UFC 117 trash talk fest, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. "I think he's just talking nonsense. He is not even a real challenger to Anderson. I think other fighters have done much more in the division, such as Dan Henderson, Nate Marquardt, whom he won against, Demian Maia, who played with (Sonnen) like a child, and Vitor Belfort. He is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame. He will take a beating from Anderson, who will beat him like a child, will beat his ass and will shut his mouth. He has no qualifications to compete for the belt -- that's the truth. He doesn’t have good boxing or ground, only good wrestling. Anderson is on another level. He hopes that Anderson will lose his control and blow up. It’s the only chance he has since Anderson is technically much better than him."

Strikeforce Champion's Clause an Issue in Fedor Talks
(mmafighting.com)
Despite M-1 Global's claims that there's nothing left to negotiate before the third and final fight on Fedor Emelianenko's contract with Strikeforce, Strikeforce says at least one issue does need to be negotiated: A champion's clause in the contract that would prevent Fedor from leaving to fight in another promotion if he becomes the Strikeforce champion. M-1 Global says it wants Fedor's next fight to be a rematch with Fabricio Werdum, who beat Fedor on June 26. But Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker has said that his preferred option for Fedor's next fight is a bout with Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, and Strikeforce spokesman Mike Afromowitz told MMAFighting.com that a champion's clause is going to be negotiated.
