Nick Diaz salutes Frank Shamrock
(mmamania.com)
– Nick Diaz shows his respect for mixed martial arts legend and upcoming opponent, Frank Shamrock, at today’s press conference in California to promote the April 11 event on Showtime. Diaz and Shamrock have been tapped to collide in the main event at a catchweight bout of 179 pound, setting up a grudge match between two big local stars at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, California. This is more than likely just the start of a war of words that will undoubtedly boil over when fight night finally arrives. “I feel I am the perfect candidate for this fight. Shamrock thinks he can beat guys with styles like me…. I don’t care about the weight. I feel more energetic. My strength is great. I hit harder. I like this fight because I will be able to control what goes on when we’re on the ground…. Frank can talk all he wants, but I’m going to beat him up. Let’s see how much he fights back.’’ i cant wait for this fightv Funniest pre fight press conference eva!! nick god bless you, thanks for stepping up when i punch your head thought the second row-(nick in the background ) yeah fu*k you-thank you

Kendall Grove vs Wilson Gouveia @ UFC 101 ?
(fighthype.com)
“A couple of guys they’re mentioning is they want to see me and Marquardt or Gouveia. They think Gouveia would be a good test for me. It’s just like fighting any of the other guys; show me the money. I gotta feed three mouths now instead one. I’m down to fight anybody. I talked to Joe Silva and he said no later than August, so I hope to get on the Penn-Florian card and get one more victory.

UFC Fight Night 18: Martin Kampmann preparing for war against Carlos Condit
(mmamania.com)
I think it’s going to be a war. It’s going to be a great fight. He’s a tough guy and I’m just going to get in there and try to punch him in the face, and he’s going to try to do the same to me. It should be a great fight. He’s good at a lot of things. He’s dangerous on the ground, he’s got good submissions off his back, he’s got dangerous knees and kicks. I pretty much know what I have to look out for. No matter who you fight in the UFC it’s going to be a tough fight and anything can happen. Everybody’s tough in the UFC and Carlos Condit is definitely tough. [Dropping to 170] is an easy cut. Not tough at all. I’m pretty light right now so the cut shouldn’t be any problem.

UFC 99 In Germany Will Be On US PPV
(mmaweekly.com)
The UFC's German invasion has shaped up quickly, with the bulk of the June 13 fighters confirmed in less than a month. More than half the fighters on the card are either foreign-born or based outside the US, with one fighter, Peter Sobotta, bringing in the hometown crowd as a resident of Balingen, only 272 miles, or 438 kilometers, from the 20,000 seat Lanxess Arena in Cologne. The UFC recently inked a deal with German sports network DSF to air UFC content, including live or tape-delayed events. At the festivities for UFC 96 last weekend, UFC president Dana White said the European card would come at a premium for those watching in the US. "It will be a pay per view event," White told reporters. (scroll down a bit.....)

Exclusive: Fedor NOT Fighting on DREAM's OWGP
(dreamfighters.com)
We asked M-1 if there was any truth to this rumor, or statement made by a DREAM Official. There is no truth in this rumour at all. No one really thought it was possible for Fedor to enter, but a great deal of people hoped, including every major Croatian news team. After the statment from the DREAM official that they plan to host a Open-Weight Grand Prix, and they want Fedor and Mirko to be in it, right away they hoped for Fedor vs Crocop 2. However, at this time M-1 is saying “No Truth At all” to this statement and rumor.
