UFC: Report of pay withheld from Anderson Silva after drug test failure 'not true'
A report Sunday evening by Brazilian media outlet Veja.com stated the UFC had withheld a payment of nearly $6 million to Anderson Silva after his failed pre-UFC 183 drug test. The report claimed the withheld money was Silva’s (34-6 MMA, 17-2 UFC) $600,000 fight purse, $200,000 win bonus and the money he made off of his pay-per-view “points,” or percentage of PPV revenue, for the Jan. 31 pay-per-view fight, where the former longtime middleweight champion returned from a 13-month layoff to earn a decision win over former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz (26-10 MMA, 7-7 UFC). It's so unlike Brazilian websites to post lies Edit: For some reason when I post from my iPad the links never work. Sorry about that it's the first story on junkie.

Glory 19 results: Verhoeven retains, Holzken and Schilling dominate
The big Rico Verhoeven vs. Errol Zimmerman Heavyweight title fight ended not with a bang, but a whimper. In the Glory 19 main event, Verhoeven retained his belt via injury stoppage in the 2nd round when Zimmerman threw a very out of character spinning back kick, throwing out his knee in the process. An injury is always an anti-climactic ending, but this situation was complicated by some bizarre reffing. After Zimmerman went down, referee Al Wichgers counted to 10, and Zimmerman did not make the count. At that point, he brought in the doctor, who, after some time, waved the fight off. It was a bizarre, and thoroughly confusing call, but at least Rico got the proper win.
