(mma.fanhouse.com)
Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir will be the color commentator for WEC 42 Sunday night on Versus, and all this week he's providing his insight into the WEC fights. Today I ask Mir about the bantamweight fight between Dominick Cruz and Joseph Benavidez, and whether the winner will earn a title shot.

WHERE HE WANTS TO BE, BENAVIDEZ READY FOR CRUZ
(mmaweekly.com)
No longer in the shadow of his mentor and friend, Urijah Faber, Joseph Benavidez has risen through the ranks to stake claim as the next big thing in the 135-pound division. Set to face Dominick Cruz on Aug. 9 as the co-main event under current champ Miguel Torres at WEC 42, the supporting slot has become a comfortable trend for the New Mexico native. His fight with Cruz will mark the third time in three WEC appearances that Benavidez will be on the same card with Torres headlining. Needless to say, he has taken notice.

After self-described Rocky Balboa moment, Kurt Pellegrino refocused for UFC 101
(mmajunkie.com)
For UFC lightweight Kurt Pellegrino (13-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC), the decision to leave the warm weather of Florida for the less-friendly confines of Belmar, N.J., was a simple one. "I really wanted to win again," Pellegrino recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I got kind of tired of the losing thing. It made me want to vomit and throw up." Now settled into an environment he feels far more comfortable in, Pellegrino said he's more than ready for his "UFC 101: Declaration" contest with Josh Neer on Aug. 8.

After UFC 89 suspension, teacher-student Chris Leben ready for UFC 102
(mmajunkie.com)
Prior to his UFC 89 bout with Michael Bisping, a flood of pre-event features focused on Chris Leben's transformation from the reckless and volatile cast member on "The Ultimate Fighter 1" to a maturing fight veteran who seemed to be reshaping his life. But after his unanimous-decision loss to Michael Bisping in the main event of the October 2008 event in England, the UFC announced its internal drug testing had nabbed Leben for taking a banned anabolic steroid. During a recent appearance on MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio), Leben, who immediately fessed up and apologized for using the performance-enhancer, said the episode slowed but didn't derail his progress.

Fedor: In his own words
(sherdog.com)
Recap (in my words): He is NOT demanding co-promotion, but has a 3 fight deal with M-1 so for now, he has no choice. He also is not against exclusitivity. Doesn't think he's a great fighter and doesn't care about rankings or legacy.

UFC 101: Josh Neer is ’sick of fighting guys who want to hit and run’
(mmamania.com)
“I’m expecting a tough fight. He’s well-rounded a lot like I am, but I think he’s more like a Jiu Jitsu guy more than a standup guy. I think he will stand a little bit to set up his shots to take me down. I think it has the potential to [be fight of the night]. I think this fight could be over in the first round..."

There are still plenty of questions surrounding the demise of Affliction Entertainment and their sudden reconciliation with the UFC. One man who can answer most of them is Tom Atencio. The vice president of Affliction Entertainment was the face of the organization during its short existence.

In regards to strict terms of UFC contract, we asked Aleksander Emelianenko to comment: "You can deal with UFC, I know that they have flexible contract system. All these talks about "strict" contract terms with signing with UFC, come ONLY from Vadim Finkelstein, who wants to push his owns business projects through Fedor's fights"

Mark Cuban: Affliction Did Right Thing
(mma.fanhouse.com)
The demise of Affliction Entertainment will not simply go away after one press release. The fact of the matter is that they had a lot of partners involved. One of those partners was Mark Cuban's HDNet television network, which was scheduled to air the undercard of the now-canceled "Affliction: Trilogy."

Forrest Griffin Talks Tito Ortiz Rematch, Pool Tricks and Kenny Powers
(mma.fanhouse.com)
When I spoke to Forrest Griffin about his upcoming showdown against Anderson Silva at UFC 101 on August 8, I got the sense that he wanted to talk about anything but that fight. Fine by me. The former UFC light heavyweight champion is one of the most personable and funny fighters in MMA.

‘Flo’ Job: An MMAmania.com UFC 101 interview exclusive with Kenny Florian
(mmamania.com)
It’s been roughly three years since Kenny Florian’s first title shot in which he lost a bloody, five round battle to mixed martial arts veteran Sean Sherk at UFC 64. Needless to say, a lot has changed since that juncture in his career. Six consecutive victories over top lightweight contenders including Roger Huerta, Joe Stevenson, and Joe Lauzon and Florian once again finds himself in the familiar number one contender spot. This time around, however, he’s a little older and a little wiser — and some may argue a completely revamped and weakness-free fighter.

British striker Paul "Semtex" Daley was wrapping up nearly nine weeks of training for his Aug. 1 showdown against former IFL champ Jay Hieron when he learned of the Affliction "Trilogy" cancellation. "I was and I'm still in disbelief," Daley tells FanHouse. "I put a lot of effort into this camp, training and financially. It's left me [expletive]."

Griffin Reacts to Affliction's Demise
(mma.fanhouse.com)
It's safe to say that Forrest Griffin will have a job in the UFC for the remainder of his MMA career. The fighter who is largely credited for resurrecting the promotion as a result of his April 2005 fight against Stephan Bonnar on Spike TV should expect nothing less.

Jon Fitch Talks Facial Hair, Brock Lesnar and Who He Would 'Love' to Face Next
(mma.fanhouse.com)
The last time we spoke to Jon Fitch he talked about getting engaged the day after UFC 100. But that wasn't the only exciting thing to happen to him that weekend. Fitch won his second fight in a row (and 17th in 18 fights), defeating Paul Thiago via unanimous decision. The victory surely meant a lot to Fitch because Thiago had shockingly defeated his American Kickboxing Academy team member, Josh Koscheck, in February. FanHouse spoke to Fitch about what's next for him and the funky goatee he sported on ESPN.com's MMA Live after the bout. The full interview is below.
