After seizure/fainting episode, UFC 109's Phillipe Nover retooled pre-fight prep
On Sept. 16, the day he was supposed to fight Rob Emerson at UFC Fight Night 19 in Oklahoma City, state athletic commission officials scratched Nover from the card.Commission officials said "The Ultimate Fighter 8" runner-up suffered a seizure; Nover said he merely fainted. He had done so once before; on his first day of filming for "TUF 8," he famously passed out in the lineup, which caused an immediate stir among his castmates. He said he had merely overheated in the Las Vegas swelter.

Tito says Liddell was an alcoholic and White intervention saved him
Nice job by John Morgan. MMAJunkie's lead reporter attended the season 11 "Ultimate Fighter" media day and caught a matter-of-fact statement by Tito Ortiz about Chuck Liddell. Ortiz, who always seems to be in mocking mode, sounded heartfelt when he said he was happy that Liddell beat alcoholism (1:22 mark) to make it back to the UFC. "I think [Liddell] had a problem," Ortiz said. "A lot of people go through addiction. I think his deal was he was an alcoholic. He loved to party." Ortiz claims Liddell's ego got the best of him.

Mauler Manhoef Aware of His Shortcomings
“If they have me on the ground, they have a slight advantage,” he told USAToday’s Sergio Non. “But if I have to put my fists on their chin, I also have a slight advantage…I'm going to practice my ground game very hard. Maybe one day, I can put also a grappler in a triangle choke or guillotine or armbar. It would be very nice.”

Jeff Monson to Struggle For Relevance Against Dave Herman
MMA's hardest working anarchist is showing no signs of slowing down in 2010. Coming off a split decision victory in Tulsa, Oklahoma on January 16, Jeff Monson's next challenge will likely come at Shine Fights 3, where he'll face pathetic mustache owner Dave "Pee Wee" Herman, according to The Rumble. Despite a year full of legal troubles ranging from a graffiti-related arrest to assault on a grandfather clock, Monson still managed to fight five times in 2009 in a globetrotting effort that took him to Northern Ireland, Japan, and Mexico City, among other exotic locales, like Pensacola, Florida.

Stephan Bonnar Ready To End The Polish Experiment At UFC 110
That would be his opponent, Krzyzstof Soszynski. "He usually comes to fight. In the last fight with Coleman it felt more like he wanted to get takedowns and hold me down more than anything. Not like he was trying to beat me up. Krzysztof will try to come in there and beat me up and, hey, that’s what I want! He’s just a big strong guy. But I feel technically I’ve got him beat in both the striking and the submission game. I know I can submit him, I know I could beat him standing up, and, if he lasts long enough … I’m pretty sure I could break his spirit, too. I’ve seen him kind of fold in fights and, you know, if that’s happened before, that person’s got it in them." He really has to-a loss means 3 straight for Bonnar...and despite his past contributions to UFC that could still mean Das Boot.
