(mma.fanhouse.com)
Former UFC title challenger Jeff Monson pleaded guilty Tuesday to malicious mischief stemming from his charge for vandalizing the Washington State Capital, the AP reports. Monson entered an Alford plea, which means the defendant does not admit guilt, but will accept a sentence as if he had been convicted due to the amount of evidence likely to convict him in court.

It’s not especially convenient logistically for Zuffa, LLC, the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship and World Extreme Cagefighting, to have the two promotions running events on back-to-back nights, but it makes for an enticing weekend of mixed martial arts for fans.

(mmajunkie.com)
We've all heard the rumors of Tito Ortiz's possible return to the UFC. UFC light heavyweight Stephan Bonnar has heard them, too. Bonnar, who recently dropped a unanimous decision to Mark Coleman at UFC 100, today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) he doesn't have an upcoming fight scheduled, but he's certainly willing to head the welcome wagon for "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy's" potential return to the octagon.

UFC Quick Quote: ‘Relaxed’ Forrest Griffin hoping to make contact on August 8
(mmamania.com)
“I don’t know if you’re going to get Anderson out of his game. He’s a cool, calm, relaxed guy. Very focused. He seems to have a good plan for every fight and sticks to it. I think what you can’t do is be a big slow guy that follows him around. (You can’t) be too aggressive about trying to attack him..."

UFC 101: Josh Neer is ’sick of fighting guys who want to hit and run’
(mmamania.com)
“I’m expecting a tough fight. He’s well-rounded a lot like I am, but I think he’s more like a Jiu Jitsu guy more than a standup guy. I think he will stand a little bit to set up his shots to take me down. I think it has the potential to [be fight of the night]. I think this fight could be over in the first round..."

Los Angeles Times Reporter Sticks to Fedor Emelianenko Report
(mma.fanhouse.com)
For a brief moment on Tuesday, the MMA world held its collective breath when news broke that Fedor Emelianenko and the UFC were "finalizing" a deal. Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reported on the newspaper's Web site that a deal between both sides "is expected to be announced by UFC President Dana White on Friday." However, several hours later, M-1 Global's Apy Echteld told SI.com's Josh Gross, "I can give you a guarantee it's not accurate." Pugmire, however, is standing by his story. Kind of.

So says, not surprisingly, Rashad Evans. In recent comments to FightHype on filming of TUF 10, Evans said the two were basically Tito Ortiz & Ken Shamrock all the time they were together in terms of wanting to get their hands on each other and Rashad thought Rampage felt threatened by him.

(mmajunkie.com)
Veteran middleweight fighter Tim Kennedy (10-2), who recently debuted and signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce, has opted to forgo his military career and will now focus solely on mixed martial arts. The Green Beret's six-year military enlistment ends Aug. 4, and his terminal leave began July 10, according to a recent report from the Army Times. Last month Kennedy unsuccessfully lobbied the National Guard for assignment to its Elite Athlete Program so he could continue both his MMA and military careers.

Dan Cramer and the Virtue of Patience
(ufc.com)
If anyone can attest to the old adage that good things come to those who wait, it’s Dan Cramer. When last we saw him, The Ultimate Fighter 7 alum was finally gearing up for his first professional MMA fight against Matt Arroyo at January’s UFC 94. A formal debut, which was years in the making, was first delayed by school commitments, then by sanctioning issues in local shows, and finally by a broken – and then re-broken – collarbone that kept Cramer out of commission for almost four months.
