Dan Henderson's Jiu-Jitsu Coach Welcomes Potential Matchup With 'Jacare' Souza
(sherdog.com)
"With all due respect to Jacare, Distak is putting him in a bad spot. I think Distak just motivated ‘Hendo,’ who will now give everything he has in training," said Pantcho. “Dan Henderson hasn’t fought since [May], and he is willing to come back in January. That's [been] his plan since last fight. For now, he's been coming to the gym three or four times a week to keep in shape. Fighting ‘Jacare’ would be a huge motivation since he is about to get a title shot."

How a tragic accident taught Jason Day the price of a dream
(mmafighting.com)
The last chapter of Jason Day's athletic career unexpectedly slammed shut on August 4, 2011. An ex-UFC middleweight who once battered Alan Belcher in his Octagon debut, the previous year had not been kind to Day. Just two months prior, he lost his third fight in as many tries, succumbing to a two-minute mugging at the hands of Francis Carmont at some small show in Ontario, Canada. His head wasn't in that one, he'd admit years later, but at least on this bright Vancouver afternoon, he was back home, the air was crisp, and the road was all that mattered. ----------------------------- Found this interesting since I live in BC and completely understand the level of BS that ICBC is all about. Feel pretty bad for Jason Day, but at least he has a bit of a silver lining here.

Jamie Varner Talks UFC 173, Call of Duty, King Mo and James Krause
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Former WEC lightweight champion and UFC veteran Jamie Varner recently talked with PunchDrunkGamer.com about his upcoming fight Saturday night at UFC 173 against James Krause, his new gym Impact MMA, Call of Duty, King Mo’s meltdown and short notice fights. Enjoy!

PDG: The UFC lightweight division is pretty stacked at the moment; what are thoughts on the division and the guys at the top that your are hunting down? Jamie Varner - It is very competitive and I would have to say it is the most competitive division in the UFC right now. In my opinion the top two guys in all of the UFC right now are Renan Barao and Jose Aldo and there is such a huge gap between those guys and the other guys in their divisions. Then you look at the lightweights – Anthony Pettis, Ben Henderson and Gilbert Melendez and you have five super talented fighters that you may only see once in a lifetime. So that is my top five and three of them are in the super competitive lightweight division and I feel like I should be right up there in the top ten and that is one reason that I am going to stop taking fights on short notice.

Chris Holdsworth Interview - Talks UFC 173, PS4 and Ludwig's Departure
(punchdrunkgamer.com)

PDG: Speaking of that UFC 173 main card, one of your teammates, TJ Dillashaw is facing the UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao. What do you think of that match-up? Chris Holdsworth: I think it is a great match-up and I think TJ has the best chance to win the belt out of all of the top contenders at 135lbs right now. Obviously I train with the guy, I know where he is at mentally and physically and I think he is going to win the belt. It is going to be a great fight, Barao’s record speaks for itself, he is undefeated in his last 32 fights, so he is definitely the man right now and he will be going in there the champ. TJ is going to have to use all skills to take the belt and it is great to experience to see what he is going through heading up to this fight. He was originally expected to face Takeya Mizugaki but after Chris Weidman got hurt and they had to move his fight, TJ gets a shot now. Before they announced it I was wondering now who is going to headline this card? Will it be a big draw for the rest of the card? Then I wake up one morning and I hear TJ Dillashaw is fighting for the title. He is a good friend of mine and he deserves this opportunity. PDG: Other big news has recently surfaced regarding your fight team, Team Alpha Male; Duane “Bang” Ludwig has announced that he will be leaving your team to open up his own gym/training center in Colorado. Do have any notions on what you will do when he leaves? Will you stay in Sacramento or make the move to Colorado? Chris Holdsworth: Yeah it sucks to see Duane leave, just because he is a great role model for me and he has been such a great coach. I got love for the guy. We spent a lot of time learning the Bang Muay Thai system, so it sucks that he is leaving and then we will be getting a new coach and stuff like that. But you have to do what is best for you and makes you happy and for him a big part of that is his family. I still plan on working with Duane and I want to keep him around in my life and my career. I am definitely staying out here in Sacramento but if I get the chance to go train with him in Colorado or have him take a trip out here, that is definitely going to happen.
Here is the rest of the interview - I think some of those guys will be re-locating to Denver.

Johny Hendricks Interview – UFC 171, Call of Duty and TRT
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
The #1 ranked UFC welterweight Johny Hendricks recently took some time to talk with PunchDrunkGamer about his upcoming fight at UFC 171 against Robbie Lawler, the recent ban on TRT, medical marijuana, Call of Duty and more. Enjoy!

PDG: When they were letting fighters use TRT, the commissions were still treating medical marijuana and recreational use of marijuana like a performance enhancing drug (PED). What is your opinion on that and should fighters be able to use medical marijuana? Johny Hendricks: Here is the thing, marijuana is still illegal in how many states, 50 out of 52! So your sitting there and knowing that it is illegal basically everywhere and so I look at that situation a little bit differently. I don’t know all of the facts about it but I do know that for one thing it can help you stay relaxed and calm. So that could give a fighter an edge going into a fight because if you were stressed, you could smoke a little bit, calm down and potentially give you an advantage going into the Octagon because you could have the mindset of “well I am not to worried about this fight”. Whereas your opponent could be really stressed out and it could cause him to make a mistake that costs him the fight. That brings us back to the TRT issue, what does it do to your body? Does it make 18 again?
