Mousasi's New Start Coincides with Strikeforce's Swan Song
It wouldn’t be accurate to say Gegard Mousasi had a charmed mixed martial arts life from 2003 to 2011, but in a sport where practically everyone has had to deal with the reality of a serious injury at one time or another, he stayed off the disabled list longer than most.

With cast announced, 'The Ultimate Fighter 17' could prove volatile
More than two dozen middleweight fighters have been selected for the upcoming 17th season of "The Ultimate Fighter," and one of them is apparently capable of reducing his opponents to nervous breakdowns. Ultimate Fighting Championship officials revealed to USA TODAY Sports the 28 fighters who will compete on the latest edition of the promotion's long-running reality series, which debuts Jan. 22 (FX, 8 p.m. ET). Now fight fans will inevitably try to determine which fighter UFC President Dana White recently said struck fear in the hearts of his opponents during filming of the tournament-based competition. "The whole house is terrified of this guy. Everybody," White said. "I picked this fight, and this guy is lined up with the guy I'm telling you about, and the guy has a nervous breakdown in the house over the weekend. "This guy scared the living s--- out of everyone. It's awesome."

Bellator tournament veteran Alexis Vila will return to 125 pounds on Jan. 19, when “The Exorcist” takes on Joshua Sampo for the Championship Fighting Alliance flyweight title at CFA 9. “I decided to move back down to flyweight because it is a more natural fit for me,” Vila said in the promotion’s official release. “I only moved to bantamweight to try to further my career and get into the UFC, but now that they have a flyweight division, staying at bantamweight doesn't make sense.”

UFC featherweight contender Diego Nunes has left Nova Uniao
UFC featherweight contender Diego Nunes (18-3) has left the Nova Uniao camp in Brazil after (understandably) playing second fiddle to reigning division champion Jose Aldo, according to SporTV. "The Gun" will try to unload on Nik Lentz later this month at UFC on FX 7 in Sao Paulo, but does folding the tent on "The Carny" put him on the fast track to a 145-pound title fight? Or too soon?

Ed Herman feels that Jake Shields tested positive for performance enhancing drug
UFC middleweight, Ed Herman, discusses being on the last Strikeforce card, and his suspicions that Jake Shields tested positive for PEDs. Saturday night, the bell tolls for Strikeforce, with the doors closing forever after the event. It is a card filled with talented athletes, looking to make their mark in anticipation of being brought over to the UFC. There is also a lone gunman, if you will, a solid test brought over from the UFC to stand in as a late replacement for Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza. That man, Ed "Short Fuse" Herman, stands ready to engage in a duel that presents a great deal of meaning to both men, and will also determine their career paths. I spoke with Ed yesterday, and got his thoughts about Souza, and about the disappointment he feels in the NC fight he had with Jake Shields.

Bellator fighter Paul Daley scheduled for fight in Ireland on February 23
After some trials and tribulations, it appears that Daley has finally been approved for a fight outside the Bellator umbrella. Bellator Welterweight Paul Daley was expected to fight on the promotion's Season 8 premier on Spike TV against War Machine next week. Those plans were tossed after a recent arrest prevented Daley from obtaining a visa to travel to the US. After initial struggles with Bellator in getting permission to fight outside their organization, it looks like Daley now has a fight scheduled. Daley will face Patrick Vallee at Cage Contenders 16 on February 23.
