Rich Clementi Vs Terry Etim added to UFC 84
No Rest for “No Love” Thomas Gerbasi, UFC - Lightweight contender Rich “No Love” Clementi is taking no time off after his three round win over Sam Stout at UFC 83 last Saturday. Instead, the pride of Slidell, Louisiana will be back in the gym preparing for a May 24th bout against UK rising star Terry Etim on the star-studded UFC 84 card at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. Clementi replaces Rob Emerson, who was forced to withdraw from the bout against Etim due to injury. Thats dope Clementi is taking this fight. Clementi is starting to string some decent wins togeather, and should start to see some bigger opportunities come his way. I'd personally like to see him fight Nate Diaz, or mabey Frankie Edgar, If he gets past Etim. That would be 4 straight wins, all of which are impressive. In order: Anthony Johnson, Melvin Guillard, Sam Stout,.......

Mac Danzig Talks Latest Win, TUF Stigma, and More
(cagepotato.com)
Mac Danzig may be one of the most accomplished fighters yet to win Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t feeling the same pressure to live up to the hype that other winners have labored under. His submission victory over Mark Bocek on his first UFC pay-per-view this past Saturday was a good start to his UFC career, but Danzig is hoping that it’s just the beginning. In this exclusive Cage Potato interview Danzig talks about the price of celebrity, about his future in the UFC’s lightweight division, and about his hard-fought victory in Montreal. CagePotato.com: First of all, congratulations on your victory. Looking at this matchup beforehand, it seemed like you were a pretty heavy favorite, 5-1 according to some of the betting lines. Were you expecting Mark Bocek to be as tough as he was? Yeah, I knew it would be a really tough fight. I thought it had potential to be tougher than it was. The betting lines don’t really mean anything to me and I try not to look at them. I was kind of pissed when I did see them, actually, because I thought to myself, ‘Man, they’re not giving this guy enough credit.’

411 MMA Interview: The Ultimate Fighter 7’s Amir Sodallah
(411mania.com)
After coming into the Ultimate Fighter Season 7 with an MMA record of 0-0 many fans began writing into the websites that here comes a fighter who just took up MMA one day and chose the Ultimate Fighter to begin and would as a result be wiped off the show on the first episode. They were wrong as he proceeded to submit his opponent in the first round and would later become Forrest Griffin’s second pick. 411mania’s John Curry sits down with Amir Sodallah to get to know this fighter. After this, Amir has gained himself at least one new fan.
