Tim Sylvia: I Think I Ruined Andrei Arlovski-Since I KO'd Him He Hasn't Been The Same
(mmamania.com)
Yes, that's the former UFC Heavyweight Champion taking credit for his fellow ex-champ's recent downfall and proving that apparently there's still some heat between them. "I would imagine Strikeforce would be better for me because they would be a little more lenient with me instead of locking me down, there is a lot of things you can’t do when you fight for the UFC. With Strikeforce I could probably fight more often, the UFC has so many top guys now that they are only fighting twice a year and I don’t want to do that. I want to fight Overeem, Fedor again, Werdum is a good fight and me and Rogers would be a good fight. Arlovski I think would be [like our fight] number three again, me knocking him out. I think I ruined the poor guy, since I knocked him out he hasn’t been the same."

Alistair Overeem: There Is Nobody Else Out There With The Speed & Technical Ability To Beat Fedor But Me
(mmamania.com)
So he says. "I surround myself with people who have the same attitude, intelligent people which you can learn from and develop yourself. In the gym my sparring partners don't really like me. There's nobody else out there with the speed, technical ability and the sharpness [to beat Fedor]. I know how to turn myself into a very dangerous weapon." Said fight could become a reality should Fedor beat Fabricio Werdum on June 26.

Andrei Arlovski: 'I'm 15-8 right now and it's horrible'
(mmamania.com)
I feel kind of upset because I put down my trainers. We had a great camp. I don't know, after 11 months (out of action) it's kind of hard to come back, but I think I did okay. I took his couple of shots on my chin. I guess I showed the fans my chin's not weak. It was a tough fight. He's tough. It just wasn't my night. Right now I'm focused on my MMA career because when I took the fight on short notice against Brett Rogers my mind was focused on my pro boxing and as a result he knocked my ass out in less than 20 seconds. Of course I wanted to box, but in MMA I have three losses in a row. I'm 15-8 right now and it's horrible. I just have to train I guess even harder and try to fight even harder. I feel great. I could fight maybe tomorrow. It's up to Scott Coker. I want to fight, fight, fight.

Carano, who appears in famed director Steven Soderbergh's 2011 film release "Knockout," hasn't fought professionally since that loss, which was the first of her career. And while she isn't booked for Strikeforce anytime soon, SF CEO Scott Coker intends to reach out to her soon. "We will be reaching out to her soon," Coker said after Saturday's latest Showtime-televised event. "She's still part of the family. "We miss you Gina."

Coker: Even With Fedor Win, Overeem Fight No Guarantee
(mmajunkie.com)
Scott Coker has a little bit of advice for those assuming Fedor Emelianenko vs. Alistair Overeem for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Title will happen if Fedor beats Fabricio Werdum next month: Don't. It's not guaranteed. Coker says it's wait and see, and of course they would have to talk to M-1 Global after 6/26. And if Werdum wins, forget it.

Shine Fights exec still unsure why card was canceled, vows to return in summer
(mmajunkie.com)
While the North Carolina Boxing Authority's decision to cancel Saturday night's Shine Fights event is just hours old, the levity of the situation has already been fully realized by the promotion's CEO, Devin Price. "It's definitely sunk in," Price told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "This is definitely reality. It's not the reality I was hoping for, but it's definitely reality." But what Price said he doesn't fully realize yet is why. Why did the commission pull the plug when everyone else involved was prepared to move forward – even without the participation of former boxing champion Ricardo Mayorga?
