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...

Cris Cyborg Talks Invicta FC, Coenen, UFC and Rousey
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Some tidbits.....

PDG: With the PED situation behind you, what was the biggest lesson you learned from that experience? Cyborg Santos: Don’t trust anyone! And I have to control my weight. Cutting to 145 is always a battle, I made a mistake and now it is behind me and it is time to move on. PDG: You’ve had words with Ronda Rousey in the past. What do you think of the animosity between the two of you now? Is it all for the cameras or is it genuine? Cyborg Santos: It is all genuine, I want to knock her out. PDG: Despite the war of words, what do you think of Rousey as a fighter? Cyborg Santos: She is a one trick pony and she ran from me to 135. I have nothing else to say.
Here is the rest

Hector Lombard vs Nate Marquardt welterweight bout official for UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston
(mmamania.com)
Ask and you shall receive. Hector Lombard played matchmaker less than two weeks ago, officially announcing he'd cut to 170 pounds and that he wanted a fight against former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nate Marquardt. It wasn't the first time he'd asked for the fight either. Lombard has wanted a piece of Marquardt for over two years now, hearkening back to his Bellator days when "The Great" was originally kicked from UFC for elevated levels of testosterone. MMAFighting has confirmed that Lombard vs. Marquardt will go down at UFC 166 this fall (Oct. 19, 2013) in Houston's Toyota Center.

To MMA or not to MMA? An Olympic wrestler weighs his options
(mmajunkie.com)
Dodging puddles in an unpaved parking lot on a rainy June afternoon, Jake Herbert attempted to put his career dilemma in the simplest terms possible. Not an easy task, considering the gravity of the choices that lay in front of the 28-year-old Olympian and two-time NCAA freestyle wrestling national champ. On one hand, there are the 2016 Games to think about. On the other, there's the potential to make a lot more money beating up other men in a cage as a professional MMA fighter. And behind door number three? "That's the thing," Herbert said and cocked his head with a shy smile. "I actually studied at Northwestern." This is the problem Herbert faces, though it's a good problem, all things considered. The time is coming where he is going to have to choose a path. The choice he makes could say a lot about MMA's ability to appeal to qualified outsiders, and also about wrestling's enduring hold even at a time of turmoil on the international scene. At the heart of that choice is a question that's interested me for a long time, as someone who writes about and loves this sport, yet sometimes can't understand what compels certain people to do it...
