Jon Fitch Won't Cry Over Being Passed Up On Title Shot
Prior to his last bout against Thiago Alves, Jon Fitch had been told by UFC President Dana White that the winner would be the next in line to fight for the UFC Welterweight Title after Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck settle things in December but enter a Jake Shields signing and win at UFC 121 and it appears Fitch had been left out in the cold, but that's not something that he's upset about:

White: Roy Nelson's UFC Career On Hold Until Outside Contract Issues Resolved
OBERHAUSEN, Germany – There's a reason Roy Nelson will not appear at UFC 125, and it's not because the UFC is unable to find him a new opponent. UFC president Dana White today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Nelson (15-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) is currently contractually bound to another fight promotion. As such, he won't be seen inside the octagon until he is in the clear from his previous employer. Following Saturday night's UFC 121 event in Oberhausen, Germany, White declined to specifically name the fight promotion, but sources close to "Big Country" confirmed that former boxing champion Roy Jones Jr.'s Square Ring Promotions has Nelson tied down. Nelson headlined a MMA/boxing hybrid card Jones Jr. promoted in March 2009 entitled "March Badness" and was defeated by former UFC heavyweight contender Jeff Monson by unanimous decision. He earned $30,000 for his efforts. That's gotta suck.

Alessio Sakara scratched from UFC 122 - Ludwig/Oscipzak Promoted to Main Card
And then there were 10. As in only ten bouts remain on the “UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami” roster. Although the event is officially underway inside the Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany, Alessio Sakara was abruptly scratched from tonight’s co-main event against Jorge Rivera. According to FightersOnly, Sakara came down with “flu-like symptoms” early this morning. An Octagon source told FO the Italian, “Woke up sick, with nausea and flu-like symptoms. He saw a doctor and he was really ill. He came to the arena anyway and was going to fight, but his symptoms came back in a big way and he is too sick to fight.” There are also reports the striker was vomiting backstage, which prompted the world’s premier mixed martial arts show to scrap the co-featured contest.

Dana: UFC Will Soon Add Flyweights
Every major weight class soon will be under the Ultimate Fighting Championship banner. Following January's upcoming absorption of World Extreme Cagefighting and its 145-pound featherweights and 135-pound bantamweights, the UFC then will add 125-pound flyweights. That's according to UFC president Dana White, who said the new weight class could soon debut. "I believe we'll add it a lot sooner than people think we will," White said during today's Q&A session at at Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany. His comments come a day after two potential stars of the division – WEC 52 fighters Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson – picked up wins as bantamweights in Las Vegas.

Dana: We Probably Will See Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir Next
Again, like it or not, while also denying another rumored fight. "He never asked for Roy Nelson, that's not true. The last thing I did hear was that he wants to fight Frank Mir again.

Wanderlei Silva Has A Message For Vitor Belfort...
You want a rival, you got one! "You know, I was missing something. But then I found out I needed a rival. I never trained as hard as the time I fought (Ricardo) Arona. But now, I want (Vitor) Belfort, and I'm already trained for you. I'm gonna get you, you'll see!" This stems from an ongoing feud that started when Wanderlei predicted Anderson Silva would "destroy" Belfort at UFC 126, and Silva's reaction is to these comments from Belfort: "I didn’t waste my time watching [Wanderlei's video blog]. It’s just a spectator’s opinion. Spectators can say whatever they want. He just wanted to get some attention for himself. I don’t take it seriously. I will use my best characteristic - that is trading hits, boxing. It’s going to be a great test to strike with him. This is my job, right? I’m training Muay Thai a lot with a world champion and my karate coach is coming next month. I’ll be ready when I get there, you can be sure."
