Melendez Not Waiting Around, Asks For Ishida
(mmaweekly.com)
When Gilbert Melendez knocked out Rodrigo Damm in Strikeforce a couple of weeks back, not only did he reassert his claim to be the No. 1 contender in the promotion's lightweight division, but he took a huge step forward in showing the same kind of dominance that had him ranked among the top three 155-pounders in the world just a short time ago.

MMA Quick Quote: Gina Carano would ‘probably’ choose the UFC over Strikeforce
(mmamania.com)
Frankly, I am absolutely unmotivated by money. And I know that maybe people take that and don’t understand what that means, but I am just not. What I am interested in is people that have respect. Not only respect for me, but people who have respect for women in MMA … I have sat down with Dana and (Zuffa co-owner) Lorenzo (Fertitta) and they have expressed interest and want to do something, but I am a little weary because I know that Strikeforce is signing women and the “Cyborg” fight is over there … I think that I would probably pick Zuffa (over Strikeforce) because that’s the big show, you know? To be a part of that would be amazing, but you know, here comes Strikeforce and they’ve got this CBS and Showtime deal and they are working their way up into being good competition … They’ve built their company on some good roots and now they are ready to branch out on Showtime and CBS. But as of right now, the UFC is the big show, and for a female, it would be an amazing opportunity.

Following UFC 97 win (and thanks to wife), Soszynski securely in UFC
(mmajunkie.com)
This past weekend's UFC 97 victory over former WEC light-heavyweight champion Brian Stann proved to Krzysztof Soszynski something his wife already knew: He belongs in the UFC. After getting a late start to his MMA career at age 25, and after some mixed results after a step up in competition midway through his career, Soszynski's confidence was shaken. But with some encouragement from his wife and back-to-back award-winning victories in the UFC, Soszynski now know he belongs with the 205-pound division's best.

Matt Hamill has something new for Brandon Vera at UFC 102
(mmamania.com)
“I have a lot of things to add. I add more moves every time I fight. Every time I fight, there will always be a new move, so at UFC 102 against Brandon Vera, I’ll have a new weapon that no one has seen. The old Matt Hamill is not the new one. I can do things that are not expected.”

Dana White ready for a war on Chuck Liddell retirement issue
(mmamania.com)
“Chuck Liddell is stupid rich. Chuck Liddell is done. He’s got nothing left to prove. He’s the most famous guy on Earth. I love him like a ******* brother and I don’t want to see him get hurt. There is no reason for it. He’s ******* 40 years old man. These guys that are fighting now are young, explosive, fast ******* kids who are well rounded mixed martial artists. There’s no ******* reason for Chuck Liddell to be out there at 40 years old still fighting. I don’t want to make a ******* nickel off that ever.

Anderson Silva & Thales Leites Should Both Hang Their Heads In Shame
(mmamania.com)
That, "quite honestly", is the opinion of Michael Bisping following UFC 97's main event. He clearly thinks the Canadian fans desreved better from the fight and says he's seen more agression from his fiance when "she hits the January sales".

Bobby Lashley Not Going To UFC Anytime Soon
(411mania.com)
Bobby Lashley's decision to go back to wrestling, even part-time, has halted his UFC aspirations for now. Dana White apparently doesn't want any association with pro wrestling at this time while he & UFC continue to build the brand, and Lashley would have such association now.

GSP Announces Fan Logo Design Contest
(gspfightclub.com)
Georges St-Pierre is rapidly becoming an international icon – not only is he one of the strongest, toughest, and most energizing athletes to grace the MMA Octagon, he is also a class act outside of it. Now Georges wants to take his brand to the same level that his athletic performance has taken him. To accomplish this task, he’s engaging those that who will help him achieve that goal – his fans. “Georges has some of the greatest fans in the sport”, said Shari Spencer, Georges’ manager. “This contest represents his desire to give something back to his fans – to allow them to participate in his efforts to represent this sport on a whole new level.” The winning logo design will be incorporated into Georges’ new website, be displayed on his shorts and banner within the Octagon during his fights, and be incorporated into a new line of merchandise to be debuted in conjunction with UFC 100 on July 11th. Here is your chance to show GSP your skills and help him develop a logo that represents GSP in your eyes! Take some time to draw, paint, or even sketch your ideas – then go to GSPfightclub.com and send him your ideas. GSP will narrow the choices down to ten (10) finalists. Then, just as GSP draws upon his fans’ support to win his fights, he’ll turn to his fans to help him pick the winning logo design. Your design just might be chosen as the lucky winner that he’ll wear during his upcoming fight at UFC 100! But you better hurry – this contest is only open for a short time. For full contest details, check out .

Alistair Overeem no longer horsing around with his diet
(mmamania.com)
I changed my diet, I changed my coach and when I really think about it – I changed everything. From my girlfriend to my training and diet. Before I ate a lot of vegetables that are healthy but contained little energy. Now I mainly eat horse meat, rice and protein shakes. I got rid of my old coach who was in charge of my fight strategies. It simply wasn’t working. I just started to think about what I had to do to become a better fighter.

Shane Nelson Vs Aaron Riley Rematch At UFC 101
(mmaweekly.com)
A rematch is in the works for UFC 101 on Aug 8 in Philadelphia as lightweights Shane Nelson and Aaron Riley will do battle for the second time inside of six months after the pair fought to a controversial stoppage during their original fight at UFC 96 in March. The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday by a source close to Nelson's camp. Shane Nelson came into UFC 96 just one fight removed from his time on the "Ultimate Fighter", and looked good in the early going, dropping his opponent with a big shot that put Riley on the canvas. As Riley kicked up to defend himself once on the ground, referee Rick Fike rushed in to stop the action, declaring Nelson the winner much to the dismay of the Ohio crowd who saw that the fight seemed far from over.
