GSP and Nick Diaz Likely on Tap for UFC Primetime, but Will Diaz Play the Game?
(mmaweekly.com)
UFC Primetime has become a big hit leading up to some of the promotion’s marquee bouts. The series follows two main event fighters on a three-part, behind the scenes journey leading up to their fight. For UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, the series is old hat. He’s taken part in the promotional vehicle several times. There’s a reason for that. St-Pierre is one of the most popular fighters in the sport, and he realizes that partaking in such promotional tools only helps to drive his popularity, and value, threw the roof.

Following Hallman's UFC 133 banana hammock, White serious about short-shorts ban
(mmajunkie.com)
PHILADELPHIA – Who likes short shorts? Clearly not Dana White. The UFC president said he's dead serious about banning the type of bikini bottoms that Dennis Hallman wore at UFC 133 – the same briefs that ever-so-briefly exposed Hallman's nether regions to Saturday's pay-per-view audience. "I'm seriously pissed off at the guys who work us who let him walk out with those things on," White said.

Rashad Evans thanks ragtag camp's family atmosphere for UFC 133 victory
(mmajunkie.com)
PHILADELPHIA – Rashad Evans seemingly had every factor working against him. There was the 14-month layoff and potential cage rust. There was the promised title shot that dissolved for a variety of reasons. Then there was the very public split from his former training camp and his residence with a new team – one that had some insiders doubting his preparations for Saturday's UFC 133 pay-per-view headliner with Tito Ortiz.

Could Dan Henderson be on his way back to the UFC? "Fatso" needs to talk to "Ugly"
(mmajunkie.com)
By now, it's no secret that Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson (28-8 MMA, 3-1 SF) is currently a free agent. And while the sport's newest cliché (other than "stripping down to his Hallmans"), "business as usual," remains the guiding principle behind Strikeforce's business plan, UFC president Dana White admits there's a chance Henderson could soon make the leap back into the octagon. It all depends on what happens when "Fatso" talks to "Ugly." "Dan Henderson is in the mix," White told a small group of reporters following Saturday night's UFC 133 event. "Me and old ugly got to get together and talk and figure stuff out first. "I texted him. I said, 'Hey, ugly. You ready to talk?' He said, 'Whenever you're ready fatso.'"

UFC boss: Jim Miller, Chael Sonnen, Brian Stann all likely on verge of title shots
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC president Dana White readily admits it's difficult to predict the direction of his promotion's entire roster mere moments after an event concludes. Who gets cut, who stays, who moves up the ladder – White said he prefers to reflect for a day or two, then convene with UFC officials Lorenzo Fertitta and Joe Silva to make group decisions. However, White did say a trio of fighters – namely Jim Miller (20-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC), Chael Sonnen (25-11-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC) and Brian Stann (11-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) – are all within striking distance of a shot at a UFC title and will soon find themselves in potential No. 1 contender fights.

UFC 133 results: After finishing Tito Ortiz, Rashad Evans wants to 'teach Jon Jones a lesson'
(mmamania.com)
Rashad Evans finished Tito Ortiz -- once and for all -- in the main event last night (Aug. 6) of UFC 133 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and earned himself a light heavyweight title shot in the process. And a ticket to Denver, Colorado, to challenge the winner of Jon Jones vs. Quinton Jackson at UFC 135 on Sept. 24. Of course, while a win for Ortiz last night would have undoubtedly been good for business as the Huntington Beach hype train would have only built more and more steam, UFC President Dana White is surely seeing nothing but dollar signs at the possible 205-pound title match-ups.

After UFC 133 win, Chad Mendes' title shot could be derailed by hand injury
(mmajunkie.com)
PHILADELPHIA – Following a convincing but low-key UFC 133 win over heavy underdog Rani Yahya, is Chad Mendes still next in line for a UFC title shot? Following Saturday's event, it was a question UFC president Dana White pondered aloud. But he also found a way to divert a direct answer: by pointing out a hand injury that could sideline the young contender for the foreseeable future.
