After Latest Action, UFC Hopeful For "Decided Downturn" In Illegal PPV Streaming
(mmajunkie.com)
Lawyers representing the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the owner of a Web site whom they allege sells pirated UFC content. The U.S. District Court suit says Moazzam Gandu, a resident of Stafford, Va., and the alleged owner/operator of Rage-Streams.net, violated copyright laws by charging customers fees to view pirated UFC pay-per-view streams and past UFC fights. The suit asks for up to $150,000 per copyright infringement, plus legal costs, revenue earned from the website, and a halt to its operation. The suit charges Gandu with using UFC logos to promote his Web site's service and undercut channels for the promotion's authorized content. By example, it says Rage-Streams.net offers a stream of the promotion's upcoming UFC 110 pay-per-view event for $6.99, while the UFC and authorized partner Yahoo! Sports charges $44.95. It also claims the website gives its customers the ability to keep and spread pirated content after subscribing to the service. As a result, the lawsuit says, the UFC has suffered damage to its brand and bottom line. The site has been taken down but subpoenaing the IP addresses and usernames of online pirates was still "absolutely" possible.

Jens Pulver: 'The athlete in me ain't ready to die yet'
(mmamania.com)
"I was very close. I was done. I just didn't make the announcement. I told Dana and everybody that it was over. The name Jens Pulver was done.... That's the mortality I was talking about after the fight. People were rushing me to say goodbye to something I've done my whole life. I got really bitter about it. This is all I've known my whole life. This stuff saved my life. And people are gonna tell me when I'm done? F**k that."

Heath Herring clarifies recent UFC criticism, says non-fight ventures simply more lucrative
(mmajunkie.com)
“I think the whole five Ferrari comment is that at this point in my career, I’m actually making less money than when I was younger and I was 23 years old,” Herring told MMAjunkie.com. “Like I said, I’ve got these business opportunities that have arisen, and it actually makes more sense for me to try to do that financially than try to take the time out and fight. That’s the decision I’m being faced with right now.” It wasn’t an easy decision, he noted. “It’s obviously a risk that I wrestle with on a daily basis,” he said. “It’s been a very tough decision for me. But with my current contract, I feel like I’ve hit the glass ceiling, so to speak. It’s not that I don’t ever want to fight again. But I have to be intelligent with my body and my time, and (if) I can find something that pays off better, I need to go down that road. “I’ve got a lot of scars and wounds but not a lot to show for it. It’s like, ‘Do you want to keep destroying your body?’ I love fighting. But it’s like you wake up one day – and I’m almost 32 years old now – and you say, ‘What have I really done? What’s the legacy I’ve left for my child and my family, other than do you want to watch me on YouTube? You want to watch me on Spike TV?’

Anthony Perosh: 'I'm going to try and take Cro Cop down and choke him out'
(mmamania.com)
I actually said ‘no’ (to replacing Ben Rothwell) originally. I look up to Cro Cop and he’s a fellow Croatian. My parents are Croatian and I’ve actually been training the other Croatians appearing on this UFC 110 card. I then went and watched yesterday’s (Thursday) press conference and listened to the comment Dana White made about how many fighters actually turn down opportunities.

Trainer Talks Nick Diaz's Marijuana Use
(mmaweekly.com)
“People who don’t like Nick Diaz, that doesn’t make sense to me because here’s a guy who has never put a syringe in his (expletive) in his life. He’s a clean fighter. That’s the way it is,” said Gracie. “He wants to smoke a little weed every once in a while. Who am I to say what a grown man can do? That’s my take on it.”

Anthony Johnson Isn't Dumb Enough To Fight John Howard With A Bum Knee
(mmamania.com)
And it's a lingering injury at that, as in 18 months. "It's my meniscus again. It's been torn for a year and a half now. I ain't dumb enough to fight this guy injured, especially after so much trash talking between me and him. He's a tough fighter and I guarantee his leg kick would have done more damage to my knee. That would be dumb to go in there and I'm smarter than that. I'm not ducking this guy. I promise you we're gonna fight no matter what. We will fight. Can I say when? No, but when my knee is fixed and 100 percent, oh hell yeah." That might not be until the later part of this year though.
