UFC Quick Quote: Krzysztof Soszynski preparing for a bloody war against Stephan Bonnar on Feb. 21
(mmamania.com)
I’m not expecting to go into this fight and win this fight in the first or second round. Most likely this is going to be a brutal fight, a lot of blood everywhere on both sides. I know he’s going to come out very aggressive. I mean his job could be on the line with him losing his last two fights. He’s going to be preparing 100 percent, be aggressive and come out firing to finish this fight.

Michael Bisping: 'Rampage thinks I will beat Wanderlei easily'
(mmamania.com)
We have been discussing tactics for the fight, little tips and discussions about Wanderlei’s movement and shots, and Rampage thinks I will beat Wanderlei easily. He has inspired me and has kept confidence in the camp high. I have to keep my composure in this fight. We know what Wanderlei does – he throws aggressive shots with reckless abandon, and I’m psyched to put my game plan into practise.

Rolles Gracie's UFC Debut Was "Embarrassing"
(mmamania.com)
And according to cousin Renzo Gracie, it really wasn't due to training, injuries, etc. but actually nerves. Fact is the nerves drained him of his energy. His stand up and ground work looked bad, nothing at all like he was doing in training leading up to the fight and it was if he couldn't hear what I was telling him. I think the pressure he put on himself overwhelmed him. He'll learn and be back." Rolles Gracie was TKO'd by Joey Beltran at UFC 109.

Winner of Bisping-Wanderlei faces Akiyama
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
There had been some talk of Bisping putting himself into title contention should he take Wanderlei out in impressive fashion later this month. However, an industry source tells Fighters Only that the plan now is to have him face the Japanese welterweight should he emerge victorious. Akiyama is also likely to be on the menu for Wanderlei should he get past Bisping. The two were set to fight at one point last year before the UFC decided on a Bisping-Wanderlei match instead.
