Urijah Faber's Hometown Paper Tells Him to Retire
(mmafighting.com)
One of the tough things about combat sports is that fighters compete so infrequently that every single loss seems like the end of the world. In other sports athletes can usually end a losing streak the next day or the next week, but in fighting losses take on added significance because you won't get a chance to win again for months.

Dana White OK with WEC champ Jose Aldo's non-finish, open to 135-pound and UFC bids
(mmajunkie.com)
WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo's first title defense wasn't exactly a nail-biter. But it didn't come close to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva's much-maligned UFC 112 performance, said UFC president Dana White. The UFC figurehead conceded a finish would have been nice, though. After a night filled with barnburners, Aldo's decision win ended WEC 48 on a conservative note. "Obviously the main event is always the big topper," White said of Aldo's fight with Urijah Faber. "I think [Aldo] could have finished that fight. I think he was being very – I'll call it extremely cautious." Full Article
