Rashad Evans: Bader doesn’t perform well when the pressure’s on
Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans might be coming back from a two-year layoff, but he said the pressure is on Ryan Bader to perform when they meet Saturday at UFC 192. “I’m the fight he should get to prove that he deserves a title shot and that this is the new and improved Bader,” Evans told MMAjunkie. “He wants to prove that against a guy that’s been out for two years, a guy that’s over the hill, a guy who’s recovering from two knee surgeries.”

For Uriah Hall, Saitama was a destination and an arrival
Homecomings can be a little bittersweet, especially in the twisted, merciless game of MMA, where every fight is an intersection of loosely controlled fate. It was nearly seven years ago to the day that Gegard Mousasi, in the midst of a 15-fight winning streak, stunned Ronaldo Souza with an upkick knockout at Dream 6. That happened in Saitama, Japan, on Sept. 23, 2008.

Gabi Garcia to make MMA debut at New Year's Eve event in Japan
Most MMA fans remember Gabi Garcia from the third season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil, where the 205-pound BJJ blackbelt helped Wanderlei Silva coach his team against arch enemy Chael Sonnen's. Garcia's MMA debut has long been talked about and was originally rumored for the Brazil-based Jungle Fight promotion. Now Garcia has revealed that she will have her first fight at the New Year's Eve event in Japan, that will be headlined by Fedor Emelianenko. "This is a secret, but everybody told me, 'You fight in Japan, you fight in Japan'. But yes, I fight in Japan, December 31," she told GNP1.de. FYI, it looks like all that mass she was cultivating has been harvested....

George Roop says he's 'one of the best' but disappointed by UFC inconsistency
TOKYO – George Roop has been a pro fighter since 2006. In that nearly decade-long stretch, he’s never managed to earn more than three consecutive victories. Roop (15-11-1 MMA, 5-7 UFC) has competed under Zuffa ownership – UFC and WEC – since 2008 and in that 15-fight span has never put together more than two-straight wins. He says he’s looking to change that pattern starting with Takeya Mizugaki (20-9-2 MMA, 7-4 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 75.
