Dos Santos vs McCully...Is Dos Santos being built up bass-ackwards?
(cagepotato.com)
There are some MMA fans who will tell you that Junior Dos Santos is one of the ten best heavyweights in the world. Personally, I think he needs one more win over a credible opponent before he becomes Power Ranking-worthy, but I won't deny that he's got serious talent and potential. Which is why it's strange that for his third fight in the Octagon, he's being given someone near the very bottom of the UFC heavyweight totem pole. MMA Junkie reports that Dos Santos and Justin McCully have agreed to face each other at UFC 102 (August 29th; Portland, Oregon). So, quick MMA Math... Junior Dos Santos wasted Fabricio Werdum, who pwned Gabriel Gonzaga, who made McCully his bitch = OMFG can this fight even get approval by the Oregon State Athletic Commission? It's unfortunate because it represents a steady backwards progression in the opponents that Dos Santos is getting. For his UFC debut, he was given Werdum — a top-ten heavyweight at the time — and knocked his head into the mezzanine. Then, he was matched up with Stefan Struve, who was a killer in European leagues but untested against high-level competition, and needed less than a minute to destroy him. And now Dos Santos is being offered a fight against a guy who nobody thinks is any good. Are they building him up towards a super-fight with Jason Guida?

UFC's Anthony Johnson: Feud with John Howard far from over
(mmajunkie.com)
"I respect every fighter in the business," Johnson said. "I'm not the type to come out and say any negative things. [Howard] just rubbed me the wrong way. "He said as soon as he gets the chance to fight me, he's going to hop on it. John, if you fight me I'm going to kick you in your [expletive] mouth and knock your teeth straight. Trust me."

After fifth "fight night" bonus, Tyson Griffin focused on future, not Urijah Faber
(mmajunkie.com)
"I don't see a reason for us to fight," Griffin said. "I think his reason may be to make a big payday. "Talk is cheap with Urijah. He's been saying a lot of things since the first day I beat him and he hasn't done any of them. I think he should be a little more worried about (current featherweight champ and WEC 41 opponent) Mike Brown than me right now."

Steinbeiss talks about cancelled UFN 18 Fight
(punchdrunkgamer.com)

PDG: How did you find out that your fight with Ryan Jensen was canceled? Steinbeiss: We were about 30 seconds away from stepping up onto the stage for weigh-ins and right then they pulled us aside and said that the fight wasn't going to go on because of the Adderall thing. PDG: That had to be pretty disappointing considering all the work that you put in to prepare yourself for that fight. Steinbeiss: Most people have no idea; I made the weight and was ready to go through the weigh-ins and then pound some Pedialyte. 10 weeks of hard training and then the day before the fight you find out it is canceled. It certainly took the wind out of my sails.

Strikeforce: Scott Smith looking to add to highlight reel on April 11
(mmajunkie.com)
In the mixed martial arts world, Scott Smith (14-5) is largely known for two things. The first happened on November 11, 2006 in Las Vegas, at the live final of season four of "The Ultimate Fighter." Smith fought Pete Sell, with whom he had become good friends with during the show. The second came in MMA's network-television debut with EliteXC champ Robbie Lawler. With the equally heavy handed Benji Radach (19-4) on tap for Smith at Saturday's "Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz," could the next scene in Smith's highlight reel be far behind?
