''No Mistakes This Time'' Says Faber
(mmaweekly.com)
"I slipped up last fight and I paid for it, and you can't afford to make mistakes like that," Faber commented. "That's the biggest part. For the most part, I'll be trying to implement my gameplan, and fight a great fight without making any mistakes." Still the loss can't sit well with the California native who has only tasted defeat twice in his MMA career.

Randleman on Training & fans & Whitehead!
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Kevin “The Monster” Randleman – Back in the USA

PDG: What advantages do you see for yourself going into the fight? Kevin Randleman: I am faster, quicker and I believe that I am stronger than he is. I think I'm a better wrestler and I will be able to use my agility to my advantage. The bottom line is that I am not going into this fight taking him any lighter than any other opponent that I have ever faced. I thought I could beat Fedor Emelianenko, I thought I could beat Mirko Cro Cop, I think I am better than every fighter when I step in the cage and if I didn't think than way why the **** would I be fighting? I have watched a few of Whitehead’s fights and I know that he has been training with Wanderlei Silva but I don't think that his style is going to be that much different than in his previous fights. I think he is going to have a disadvantage though with his weight cut for the fight. He walks around at about 250 pounds and he is going to have to cut down to 205 pounds for this fight.

Diaz Talks Title, Smith & Japan
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
“El Diablo” Nick Diaz talks Strikeforce & Scott Smith

PDG: It is a pretty stacked card coming up on June 6th; are there any other fights on the card that you are looking forward to seeing? Nick Diaz: I think that the fights are going to be very entertaining for the fans and I am sure that a lot of people are looking forward to seeing the Jake Shields and Robbie Lawler fight. But I don't really look forward to seeing any of my friends fighting whether it is my brother or Jake Shields. I am sure that they are going to have great fights but it is not something that I really look forward to watching. I don't look forward to it any more than if I was watching a death match.

Al-Turk Offers CroCop 'One Of Three Options'
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Where lesser men would still be looking at the phone in slack-jawed horror and hoping never to receive a similar call from the UFC again, Al-Turk's confidence is bounding. In fact so confident is he that he offers a succinct prediction for the June 13th fight. "One of three things," he says. "Either I bang him out, I submit him or I ground and pound him."

Marcus Davis vs. Dan Hardy bad blood boils over during UFC 99 conference call
(mmamania.com)
And that’s when it snowballed out of control: Hardy: “I didn’t ask for anybody to post it anywhere. That was just the fans having fun. And if a 35 year old man can’t laugh that off — ” Davis interrupted: “That’s not true, you’re a liar.” Hardy: “No, I’m not a liar.” Davis: “I saw the form when you put it on there.” Hardy: “No, I did — ” Davis: “You’re a liar, ‘cause I saw the form, and then I saw after the pictures went on, I saw you go on there. I saw what you wrote. You wrote, ‘Hey guys, go put them on Sherdog and MMA.tv.’ That was your friggin’ picture by it, and you’re the one that put it on there.” Hardy: “That’s a lie.” Davis: “So don’t say that you’re not the one that asked them to go do that, ‘cause you did ask them to go do that.” Hardy: “No, I didn’t. No, I genuinely did not.” Davis: “Well then somebody’s using your picture and using your name, Dan Hardy, on that U.K. forum that other U.K. fans emailed me — that’s how I found the forum, they emailed me and said, ‘You have to go to this forum and see what he’s doing.’”

Yo! How ’bout Baroni vs Carano if Riggs is running scared?
(mmamania.com)
“The guy no-shows to the conference call. I have been saying from day one: Get me a back-up opponent. I don’t think he is going to show up for his fight. His mouth is writing checks his ass can’t cash. He had big a problem on June 6. Then he opened his mouth, things have gotten personal; and he’s got a really big problem now. We’re all training, we’re all busy, no one wants to do this right now but we all did it because we’re professionals except that asshole. I just hope somebody else winds up in his spot. Put Gina Carano in there; I’ll fight her instead.” Former UFC and PRIDE character Phil Baroni, possibly the most amped-up man on the planet leading up to the Strikeforce: “Lawler vs. Shields” event, took opponent Joe Riggs to task for no-showing the media conference call he was expected to participate in.

Gary Shaw Reacts to Kimbo Slice's Inclusion on TUF10 + Dana Says There's A Special Contract Waiting If He Wins
(bloodyelbow.com)
Michael David Smith of AOL FanHouse gets the first crack at him and most notably (and he's probably on to something), Shaw thinks Slice is likely being handsomely compensated: Michael David Smith: What's your reaction to Kimbo going on The Ultimate Fighter? Gary Shaw: It shocked me when I heard, especially after Dana dissing him for two years and saying the nastiest things about him. So it surprised me, knowing who Kimbo is, that he would succumb to working with Dana. It shows that whatever comes out of Dana's mouth is not always the truth. Are you disappointed on a personal level? You put a lot into promoting and marketing Kimbo. Sure. I just don't think it's a big enough platform for him. I think it's a step back. I think he's bigger than that.

“Michael [Bisping] will fight [Dan] Henderson at UFC 100 in Vegas, and the winner will get a world title shot. And if that winner is Michael, we intend to take the fight to Manchester, just down the road from where he lives. Not only would Michael be the first Briton to win a world title but the first from outside the US, Canada and Brazil.”

Patrick Cote Signs New 4-Fight deal With The UFC
(mmaweekly.com)
It looks like the "Predator" will do his stalking in the UFC for the foreseeable future. Patrick Cote has signed a new four-fight deal with the promotion, as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Monday by sources close to the negotiations. Cote has been out of action since an October 2008 loss to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. The Canadian blew out his knee in the third round, forcing a stoppage in the title fight. Currently rehabbing and waiting for clearance from his doctors, Cote has one less thing to worry about now that he knows for the immediate future he will continue to call the Octagon his home.

Pat Miletich on Drew McFedries Situation And Making Peace With Dana White
(mma.fanhouse.com)
"My entire team and myself were furious with Drew McFedries because we worked our ass off to get him ready for that fight," Miletich said. "Four different guys offered to go with him to that fight [and] he turned them all down. He went and took one of his buddies to the fight. Then, he not only thanked guys from another camp, which is fine, but it could have stopped there. But to say what he said about his teammates and his team for no logical reason was wrong.
