Tito Ortiz's Ego Strikes Again...
(15rounds.com)
Fedor is going to know that his striking is not as good as Arlovski’s... I think Fedor has to get past Arlovski before he starts thinking about Tito Ortiz... I’m not a fighter to be taken advantage of. I’m not a fighter to have people walk over me and not promote me. That’s the problem I’ve had time and time again with the UFC.

Jackson Predicts Title in 2009
(sherdog.com)
“Give me my belt back,” Jackson said. “We all fight for the belt. If I get the belt back then maybe Forrest can get a ‘W’ and then me and Forrest could fight for the belt again. I’d rather take him out in a five-round fight. Say if I beat him in a three-round fight then all these little Internet haters could say, ‘Forrest beat him in a five-round fight, he only won in a three-round fight.’ But it don’t matter because it’s going to be a short night for Forrest any time.”

UFC Quick Quote: Big fights are for people who sell tickets, not losers
(mmamania.com)
“A lot of it is pay-per-view (PPV) buys. If you sell a lot of tickets, you get fights. And Lesnar is one of the biggest ticket sellers we have in our sport right now. You can’t argue that, it’s just a facet of the game and instead of complaining about it I need to make sure I can sell a lot of tickets too. I don’t like that mentality when guys are like ‘Oh well it should be this way and it should be that way’ and I’m like ‘Dude, you’re a loser’.” – UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir (12-3) tells host Larry Pepe in Part II of their interview on MMAmania.com’s exclusive presentation of Pro MMA Radio that current UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar earned his title shot against Randy Couture at UFC 91 - and against anyone else the UFC sees fit because of his ability to sell tickets and PPV’s. Mir and Lesnar are expected to unify the belts in a rematch sometime in late Spring of 2009. Will history repeat itself or will Lesnar score revenge in Act II?

Bisping Breaks Down Franklin vs Henderson
(mmaweekly.com)
"Rich Franklin is probably the smarter fighter out of the two. I think he's got better footwork, probably more technically composed fighter. Dan's got great knockout power obviously. They're both fantastic fighters," Bisping commented. "If I had to pick a winner, I'd probably go out on a limb and say Rich Franklin by decision, to be honest."

From Team Link Lead Trainer, Marco Alvan, via BrasilCombate.com.br: “Gabriel is in Brazil training a lot of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu where we believe will be the key to win this match…. It’s going to be a tough fight and [if he wins] Napao (Gonzaga) will have [earned the right] to face the winner of Mir vs. Lesnar. But we’re not thinking about that because we have to respect Carwin and we’re focused on this fight.”
