Can drug testing programs do more than create media frenzies?
(mmajunkie.com)
For UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Johny Hendricks, pre-fight gamesmanship has taken on a whole new meaning. With their 170-pound title fight scheduled for Nov. 16 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the two have engaged in a sometimes public, sometimes private back-and-forth over enhanced drug testing – a topic that has quickly turned into a public relations battle between the fighters and their proxies...

Dan Henderson not worried about Vitor Belfort’s TRT: I beat him when he was on steroids
(mmafighting.com)
Both fighters are using the testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) for their fights, but "Hendo" doesn’t believe it’s fair since the Brazilian got caught in the past. "It doesn’t bother me, it is what it is," Henderson told MMAFighiting.com on Wednesday. "That’s an issue with the commission. I beat him the first time when he was on steroids, I suppose it won’t make a difference."

Boston City Council President: 'UFC promotes violence against women, teaches kids how to rape'
(mmamania.com)
Boston City Council President Stephen Murphy isn't a fan of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). In fact, Murphy recently sponsored a petition to have children under age 18 banned from attending any and all mixed martial arts (MMA) events held in Boston, Mass., even if their parents were willing chaperones. It's not so much the actual fighting with which Murphy has a beef, but the un-policed behavior some UFC stars have exhibited outside of the Octagon in the past. Murphy pointed to former Light Heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson, who put out this YouTube video that (bad jokingly) showed people how to pick up women with the aid of chloroform.

Ortiz picks Shogun, Varner and others pick Sonnen - Shamrock quote steals the show!

Tito Ortiz (16-11-1, UFC Hall of Fame) - “Chael is a great 185lb fighter but Shogun at 205lbs will out-class him. Chael will put up a great fight for the first 5 minutes but Shogun will win the fight. Chael needs to stay at 185lbs. I’m proud of him stepping up though, so let’s go Chael!” Frank Shamrock (23-10-2, Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, WEC Light Heavyweight Champion & Strikeforce Middleweight Champion) - “My prediction: Sonnen will lose and continue to be the only star in the UFC.”
Here are the rest - Overall it was 7-4 in favor Sonnen....................

Rodrigo Caporal: The Hong Kong Based Brazilian Lightweight Who is Dominating Chinese MMA
(mmaweekly.com)
Brazilian fighters have been making a name for themselves competing in Asia since the dawn of modern MMA competition when Rickson Gracie would submit multiple opponents in a single night at Vale Tudo Japan. Today, the sport has evolved almost beyond recognition, but fighters from the same country that gave us the Gracies are still holding their own in Asia. Among them is Rodrigo Caporal, a long-term resident of Hong Kong, who recently became the 155-pound champion of China. Caporal (9-4) has won five fights out of five since signing with RUFF, a Chinese organization that is government sanctioned, giving its fighters the right to call themselves national champions of the most populated country on the planet...
