Junior Dos Santos Is Drinking Milk And Kicking @$$
(mmamania.com)
Remember kids, milk really does a body good. Ed Soares makes sure to point that out when talking about his fast-rising Heavyweight client, also adding they are in no hurry to get a UFC Heavyweight Title shot. "We're in no hurry for a title shot. He's only 25 years old, so he's still a growing kid. Every time I see him he seems like he's a little bigger. He's drinking his milk and just getting bigger and stronger. I think we'd like to see Rodrigo beat Cain (Velasquez) and have that title shot, but whatever the UFC decides is fine with us. They've given us some great fights, some incredible opportunities, and we're just going to take whatever they give us. We never pick our opponents, so whoever they put in front of us, we'll take with a smile on our face."

With planned retirement at 30, Gegard Mousasi searching for best career options
(mmajunkie.com)
LOS ANGELES – Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi has no plans to fight until his body fails him. When the 24-year-old hits the big 3-0, he's out. With that in mind, he has set strict goals for his career's path, including a jump to heavyweight in 18 months. Before he bulks up, though, he wants to fight six to eight times in 2010 and plans to start by fighting Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal in April. He also plans to participate in a DREAM eight-man light heavyweight tournament rumored for June. "I'm going to try to stay very busy," Mousasi told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Wednesday. "It's better to stay in shape the whole year, fight a lot, than fight and be fat again and train hard again. I don't like it. I like to be in shape the whole year, be in top shape, and then I'm going to take a break for one or two months (at the end of the year)."

Vitor Belfort Is Going To Moonwalk Over Anderson Silva
(mmamania.com)
And evidently he doesn't plan to beat him in a dancing contest at UFC 112, only in fighting. He says he may not have the flashy style that Silva does, but his style is his. "[My punching’s] not explosive, it’s performance. What do you expect to see, Michael Jackson dancing? I am a relaxed man yes, but fighting is my job. My style is my style."

Tito says Liddell was an alcoholic and White intervention saved him
(sports.yahoo.com)
Nice job by John Morgan. MMAJunkie's lead reporter attended the season 11 "Ultimate Fighter" media day and caught a matter-of-fact statement by Tito Ortiz about Chuck Liddell. Ortiz, who always seems to be in mocking mode, sounded heartfelt when he said he was happy that Liddell beat alcoholism (1:22 mark) to make it back to the UFC. "I think [Liddell] had a problem," Ortiz said. "A lot of people go through addiction. I think his deal was he was an alcoholic. He loved to party." Ortiz claims Liddell's ego got the best of him.

Mauler Manhoef Aware of His Shortcomings

“If they have me on the ground, they have a slight advantage,” he told USAToday’s Sergio Non. “But if I have to put my fists on their chin, I also have a slight advantage…I'm going to practice my ground game very hard. Maybe one day, I can put also a grappler in a triangle choke or guillotine or armbar. It would be very nice.”
