A Victim No More
(sherdog.com)
The younger of two sons born to a coal miner and court reporter in Louisa, Ky., he was the subject of relentless taunts and bullying as a kid. His slight build did him no favors. Hazelett spent many of his formative years at a private Christian school but transitioned to public schools in sixth grade. It was a shock to his system. “At the Christian school, you’d get paddled for saying, ‘Crap,’” Hazelett says. “I went from that to being around a bunch of delinquents who cursed out the teacher almost every day. It definitely humbled me.”

Aoki Apologizes and Overeem says Fedor is next
(sherdog.com)
Sorry if someone else posted it. Aoki taught Hirota why pride comes before the fall. “When I had his arm behind his back, I could feel it popping,” Aoki said. “I thought, 'Well, this guy's pride just won't let him tap, will it?' So without hesitation, I broke it. I heard it break, and I thought, 'Ah, there, I just broke it.' I was stopped afterward, but even if I hadn't been, continuing to break it more would have been fine by me.” Overeem says Fedor is next! “I want to fight Fedor in May or June, so he's my primary target from now on. I'll be training for him only,” proclaimed Overeem, who cited the prospect of a May-June date as one he is currently negotiating with Strikeforce. There is some other good stuff in this article. Aoki's has a weird way of apologizing. It happens but dang, that guy has some amazing skills on the ground.

(mmajunkie.com)
In a small conference after the UFC 108 pre-fight presser, Dana White provided another update on Brock Lesnar and the UFC Heavyweight division. White said more answers could come next week after Lesnar sees the doctor, then that will determine his future and the status of Shane Carwin vs. Frank Mir at UFC 111-specifically if it's for the Interim HW Title, or even the main title.

LAS VEGAS - The Lauzon brothers are ready to rumble Saturday night at UFC 108, making history in the process. Joe, 25, and Dan, 21, will become the first brothers to appear on the same UFC show. "It's pretty remarkable," said Dan. "I'm just amped up, motivated. Same as Joe," he added. "We're both ready to put on a show."

KJ Noons vs Billy Evangelista on tap for Strikeforce: 'Miami' on Jan. 30
(mmamania.com)
Noons has been out of mixed martial arts for more than a year following his retirement from the sport in late 2008 after he was stripped of his 155-pound title for refusing to accept a rematch with Nick Diaz under the terms Elite XC was offering."King Karl" felt that his previous performance against Diaz (a first round technical knockout) and his lone title defense -- a first round technical knockout victory over Yves Edwards in June of 2008 -- was enough to at least earn himself a bigger paycheck than Diaz in the rematch.

Dos Santos Must Weather Hurricane To Get Title
(mmaweekly.com)
“I feel that he’s opening his mouth a lot,” Dos Santos told MMAWeekly.com. “He’s talking a lot for this fight, and I feel very confident that after this fight, I’m going to shut him up, that he won’t be opening his mouth until 2011.”According to UFC president Dana White, the stakes are high in silencing Yvel. A win would likely put him on the short list of belt contenders.

Aoki's Antics Mar Exciting Night At Dynamite!!
(mmaweekly.com)
In a battle of lightweight champions, Dream’s Shinya Aoki immediately put Sengoku’s Mizuto Hirota on the mat and took mount with Hirota’s arm wrapped up and behind his own back. Aoki then proceeded to, quite literally, break Hirota’s arm in an odd sort of twisting armbar. The maneuver popped Hirota’s elbow out of place, leaving his forearm flaccid.

UFC 111: Jon Fitch vs Thiago Alves rematch likely for March 27
(mmamania.com)
UFC welterweight stalwart Jon Fitch (21-3) is currently in discussions to rematch Thiago Alves (16-6) at UFC 111 from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, on March 27, setting up a fantastic 170-pound showdown that will prove once and for all how far both former number one contenders have come since their initial encounter back in 2006. Their rematch was originally pegged for UFC 107 in Memphis, Tennessee; however, "The Pitbull" had to withdraw due to a knee injury. Fitch remained on the card and defeated Mike Pierce via unanimous decision. Fitch scored a convincing second round technical knockout of the Brazilian at UFC Fight Night 5. He would go on to win his next five fights and earn a crack at division champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" in Aug. 2008. He was overwhelmed by the Canadian for 25 minutes, losing a lopsided unanimous decision. Alves, too, went on a tear after the loss to Fitch with seven consecutive victories over top-ranked opponents such as Matt Hughes and Karo Parisyan, as well as outpointing Josh Koscheck on all three judges scorecards at UFC 90 in October of 2008.
