Diaz Brothers smoke these crazy gold joints shaped like UFC gloves
(mmamania.com)
So what are the Diaz brothers doing instead? Well, just last night they spent their time smoking ridiculous golden joints shaped to look like UFC gloves. The Snapchat footage from an appearance the two made at the California Herbal Remedies shop in Las Angeles. According to one of the shop proprietors, each glove was worth about $2000 ... we have no idea if that's due to the weed inside or the gold wrapping. Either way, that's pretty baller.

(mmamania.com)
‘Cowboy’ continues to prove he’ll say yes to any fight the UFC puts in front of him.

(mmajunkie.com)
Paulo Henrique Costa will still make his official UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 106, but he’s got a new opponent. Just a couple days after announcing Costa (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) was slated to fight middleweight Alex Nicholson (7-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at the March event, officials today announced he’ll instead meet Garreth McLellan (13-5 MMA, 1-3 UFC). A reason wasn’t given for the change. UFC Fight Night 106 takes place March 11 at Centro de Formacao Olimpica do Nordeste in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil.

All in all, Colleen Schneider happy just to compete at Bellator 170
(mmafighting.com)
A lesser person than Colleen Schneider might get mad about being placed on the opening bout of the preliminary card at Bellator 170. There are, after all, 19 fighters who don’t even have Wikipedia pages on the prelim card at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. on Saturday night. But Schneider, who has 17 pro matchups under the belt, finds herself working in the curtain-jerker fight. Schneider, who brings a 4-1 record in her past five fights into her Bellator debut, is taking the high road on something other veterans might consider a slight.

Johny Hendricks vs. Hector Lombard in the works for UFC Fight Night: Halifax
(mmafighting.com)
Johny Hendricks is getting another shot in the UFC. The promotion is currently working on Hendricks vs. Lombard at 185 pounds for UFC Fight Night: Halifax on Feb. 19. The fight would mark Hendricks' middleweight debut. The UFC originally tried to book the fight for UFC 208 in Brooklyn, but clearance issues with the New York State Athletic Commission precluded that from happening, so they moved it to the Halifax card, which recently lost its main event. According to sources, though, the promotion has yet to determine whether it will serve as the main event. It appears, as of right now, that original headliner Junior dos Santos will be left off the card after the UFC was unable to find a suitable replacement for the injured Stefan Struve.

Hunt turned down multiple bouts last year, but told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour that the UFC threatened that he would be in breach of contract if he didn't take the Overeem matchup.
