The third time is a charm. At least, that’s what Vitor Belfort is hoping when he steps into the Octagon on Saturday night across from Rich Franklin. UFC 103 in Dallas marks the third time the Brazilian fighter has made a run in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Nate "The Rock" Quarry is Left 4 Dead

PDG: Ok we need to talk about some video gaming. Have you had any down time after your training to play any games? Nate Quarry: Oh yeah, I was actually able to play the UFC Undisputed 2009 game for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I got a chance to be a guest online and play some of the mixed martial arts fans that were online. It was a great time! The game I am looking forward to the most though is Left 4 Dead 2. The creators of the game did a photo shoot with me and I am going to be one of the Zombies that you fight in the game. I'm really excited to be involved in the project.

Arona Outpoints Eastman at Bitetti Combat 4
"RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – Ricardo Arona made a triumphant return to the mixed martial arts scene, as he defeated UFC veteran Marvin Eastman by unanimous decision in the main event at Bitetti Combat Nordeste 4 on Saturday at the Maracanazinho Gymnasium. Away from the fight game for more than two years, Arona looked rusty, even though he declared himself well-trained in the days leading up to the event. Eastman forced the Pride Fighting Championships veteran to work throughout the three-round bout and used his cage experience to his advantage."

Melvin Guillard, 5-3 in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, headlines UFC Fight Night 19 on Sept. 16 against The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner Nate Diaz, and Guillard believes he has the style and game plan to come away with victory. The New Orleans native would like to keep the fight standing where he feels he could score a knockout. "As far as Nate, there's been rumors that he's been begging Dana White and Joe Silva to get him somebody that he can stand up and bang with. I'm going to see if he's a man of his word," Guillard told MMAWeekly.com. "If he really wants to get in there, we can get us the Fight of the Night, or hopefully I get a Knockout of the Night if he really wants to get in there and stand up and bang."

Horn tops Guida, Prangley and Beerbohm victorious at Arena Rumble
Picking up his second win since a three-fight losing skid and subsequent release from the UFC, Jeremy Horn stopped Jason Guida via first-round submission at Saturday's "Arena Rumble" event. The show took place at the Spokane Arena in Washington. Horn built off his June victory over Chris Davis at Adrenaline MMA III with a submission win over Guida, perhaps best known for getting kicked off "The Ultimate Fighter 8" after failing to make weight for the show's opening elimination round.

Coture Vs. Vera to Headline UFC 105
RANDY COUTURE will make a quick-fire return to Octagon action against Brandon Vera at UFC 105. The 46-year-old former heavyweight champion will take on The Truth in a light heavyweight clash in the main event at the MEN Arena on November 14. Not bad for the UK fans we get the legend that is Randy facing the Over-hyped Vera. I think this could be the end of the road for Vera if he doesn't beat Coture and I don't think he will.

"The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights" season debut re-sparks once-struggling series
It's no secret that "The Ultimate Fighter" has lost much of its luster in recent seasons. While the UFC's popular reality competition series has undoubtedly been a huge success by launching more than 100 UFC careers, a stale format and sagging ratings have lately plagued the once-can't-miss weekly shows. But for the upcoming 10th season, which debuts Wednesday on Spike TV, a lot of the magic is back.

UFC 102 fighters test clean
All fighters selected to undergo drug testing at last month's UFC 102 event successfully passed their tests. Six of the night's 22 fighters, including headliners Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Randy Couture, were chosen for testing. Other tested fighters included Chris Leben, Aaron Simpson, Todd Duffee and Evan Dunham. (Because Leben was fighting for the first time since a failed drug test at UFC 89, he underwent testing before and after UFC 102.)

Dan Henderson holds out for more money, Anderson Silva
“I’m holding firm for what I think I deserve. I think I’ve earned that…. If they sign me I’ll fight who they want me to fight. Even if I get Silva now, after I beat him Marquardt would be the top contender, so I’d have to fight him next. Beat him now or beat him later, it doesn’t matter. I’ll have to fight [Nate] Marquardt eventually…. If I was the UFC I wouldn’t waste a fight between [me and Marquardt]. If they want challengers for the middleweight belt they shouldn’t want one of us to beat the other…. It all depends on Anderson Silva,” Henderson said. “If he’s not going to fight until April, I don’t want to wait that long. But I’ll do what I have to do to fight him…. I’m getting in shape like I’m going to fight,” Henderson said. “I want to stay in the UFC.” Former number one middleweight contender, Dan Henderson, hopes to re-sign a new contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) soon and rematch reigning division champion, Anderson Silva.

UFC's traditional "year-end" Las Vegas show, UFC 108, tentatively slotted for Jan. 2
Although the Ultimate Fighting Championship usually returns to its Las Vegas home for a big, year-end blockbuster pay-per-view show, this year's holiday schedule has apparently forced a slight change of plans. The Nevada State Athletic Commission has tentatively approved a Jan. 2 UFC fight date at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event presumably would be UFC 108.

Werdum isn't buying Overeem's injury
Fabricio Werdum planned to make his August Strikeforce debut by challenging champion Alistair Overeem for his Strikeforce heavyweight belt. He did end up fighting at the Aug. 15 event, but against journeyman Mike Kyle, not Overeem. The Dutch fighter cited a re-aggravated injury to his hand, originating in a bar brawl, as the reason for withdrawing from the fight. Overeem has since been confirmed to fight Peter Aerts in a K-1 kickboxing bout on Sept. 26 in Seoul, Korea. Werdum isn’t buying the injury.

Nate Quarry: "You don't become a legend by winning decisions"
"You don’t become a legend by winning decisions. That’s what fans want to see, that’s what gets you bonuses, that’s what feeds my family. I’ve seen a lot of fighters stay in the UFC with losing records because they were such exciting fighters who put it on line. I think that’s what fans pay to see, want to see and relate to. On any given day, I’m going to bring the best game I possibly have. At least I can say, ‘Win or lose, I did the best I could. What else I could have done?’ That allows me to sleep at night." Former TUF star Nate Quarry discusses his upcoming middleweight bout against “Crazy” Tim Credeur at UFC Fight Night 19 from the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Sept. 16.

Belfort’s Secret Skill: Karate
"LAS VEGAS -- Wide stance. A different scream before each attack. The Vitor Belfort I saw at Xtreme Couture Mixed Martial Arts was different from the one I’ve followed since he was 15 years old. After the training session, I met with one of his sparring partners, Jayme Sandall -- considered one of the best Shotokan Karate artists in Brazil, along with the Chinzo and Lyoto Machida. While Belfort showered, Sandall revealed that Yoshizo Machida was one of the former UFC light heavyweight champion’s trainers with the Brazilian national team and that he had become close friends with both the Machida brothers."
