Dana White: ‘We’ll do Brock vs Fedor and it’ll be a huge fight’
(mmamania.com)
“This whole Fedor thing has been going on and on and on. I keep saying this and that about him and he keeps waiting. Eventually, Fedor’s going to be here. I want Fedor. I want him to come to the UFC and everything else. [Lesnar] just became the heavyweight champion. We’ll end up getting that deal done. And then we’ll do Brock vs. Fedor, and it’ll be a huge fight.” – UFC President Dana White envisions Fedor Emelianenko becoming a possible addition to his heavyweight division at last night’s UFC 100 post-fight press conference. White and Co. worked hard to bring the Russian on board after the collapse of Pride FC; however, talks broke down when the parties could not agree on an exclusive fight contract. It would be a minor miracle if Emelianenko ever signed with the UFC … he and his camp appear to mix like water and oil when it comes to working with UFC execs. Stranger things have happened, however. In the meantime, Emelianenko is penciled in to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett this August in the third — and perhaps last event held by Affliction MMA. White seems confident “The Last Emperor” will find his way to the Octagon because after his July 11 performance, Brock Lesnar is quickly running out of viable contenders.

Lesnar Loves Being UFC's Beiggest Villian
(msn.foxsports.com)
The UFC enters its next centennial with something the company has sorely lacked. A true villain. A snarling, seemingly unstoppable bully plowing through opponents like in World Wrestling Entertainment pretend fights. Brock Lesnar was a star there once. He plays the role to a tee.

Tito Ortiz banned from the UFC Fan Expo: The UFC ‘doesn’t cherish me at all’
(mmamania.com)
“The biggest problem is the UFC in general. They’re all about branding their name. We’re the guys who get inside the cage. Strikeforce is working toward making superstars, not worried about their brand. It really comes down to a respect value. They don’t respect me. They don’t cherish me at all. UFC wouldn’t let me go to the Fan Expo. I feel very sorry for all my fans. I’m here for the fans, I’m going to support them no matter what.” Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz talks about his exclusion from the UFC Fan Expo in Las Veag during the hoopla for the big UFC 100 weekend. “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” — whether you love him or hate him — is a 21-fight veteran of the Octagon and has been a key player in some of the biggest feuds in mixed martial arts history including his two bouts with Chuck Liddell and his much ballyhooed trilogy against Ken Shamrock. Is UFC President Dana White doing a disservice to the fans by suppressing the significance of Ortiz out of personal dislike? Or does Tito share just as much of the blame?

Brock Lesnar: Mir Fought Wrestler at UFC 81, Fights Fighter at UFC 100

When Brock Lesnar faced Frank Mir at UFC 81 on February 2, 2008, it looked in the first few seconds like your typical case of a bigger, stronger guy whipping his smaller, weaker opponent, as Lesnar took Mir down and pounded on him.

Dollaway.

The UFC has officially released the names of the 16 heavyweights who will participate in Season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, and, of course, Kimbo Slice is the star.
