UFC 110: Do you know who George Sotiropoulos is? He's a serious threat...
"I see this as a step up and I do see the difference between fighting on the undercard and the main card. I'm getting more exposure, and I can see that makes a huge difference. I haven't been fighting on main cards and obviously people are going to see you less. But I feel like I'm a complete fighter and I'm gaining momentum in the public's eye."

"I'm sure there's going to be a lot of haters out there on the Internet laughing saying Wanderlei isn't Leben, and he's not.

Akiyama Wants Silva In Japan But May Get Him In Vancouver
Yoshihiro Akiyama was supposed to return to UFC this weekend and face Wanderlei Silva in Australia, but he was left out when UFC chose Michael Bisping to face Silva instead. But according to sources in his camp, he may now get Silva-or Bisping depending on what happens this weekend-at UFC 115 in Vancouver if the winner remains healthy. But if that's not the case, Akiyama's hiatus since his UFC debut in summer could get even longer. And Akiyama wants Silva in Japan, but his camp says it won't work because of UFC's TV deal in Japan.
