Joachim Hansen explains the head injury that sidelined him since 2008
(mmamania.com)
"During the final phase of training, I lifted my training partner for a takedown, and he tried to defend tenaciously. After staggering on my feet, we both fell head first on to the floor and I hit my head pretty hard. Even though I retained consciousness, I did not feel well, as I suffered from dizziness and headache. So I decided to halt the training and go to my room to rest. After a while, when I felt sufficiently recovered, I tried to get up from bed. At that moment, I experienced severe vertigo and I ended up blacking out..."

Sean Salmon Admits to Taking a Dive
(bloodyelbow.com)
In his latest "Full-Time Fighter" column for MMA Junkie, former UFC light heavyweight (and eternal star of Rashad Evans' highlight reel) Sean Salmon makes a rather startling admission regarding his last fight, which took place in Ohio back in June. Salmon says that he was training with members of the Wolfslair Academy in Cheshire, England, when he flew back to Ohio on June 3rd for a match against WEC veteran Allan Weickert (then with a record of 5-6 to Salmon's 16-7) on June 6th. He was set to return to England on June 7th, provided he emerged from the Weickert bout unscathed.

Brett Rogers: Fedor ‘hasn’t felt the power that he’s about to get’
(mmamania.com)
"Life is kinda moving along pretty fast now, especially after this (Andre) Arlovski fight. I feel this is well deserved, I mean, everything that happened, happened for a reason, and I was the one to complete it. I feel that I’m a different fighter for Fedor; he hasn’t felt the power that he’s about to get. He’s talented, but the same things he’s skilled in, I’m skilled in. It’s just we’re gonna see who’s more hungry." Undefeated heavyweight wrecking machine Brett Rogers anticipates giving former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko more power than he can handle when the two clash this Fall for the Strikeforce promotion on Showtime. "Da Grim" has taken a serious step up in competition after knocking out Andrei Arlovski at the "Lawler vs. Shields" event back in June. Is he ready to dethrone "The Last Emperor?" Or will Emelianenko drop the iron curtain on the aspiring heavyweight? Time will tell…

Muay Thai coach Quentin Chong helping Randy Couture hone skills, ignore Father Time
(mmajunkie.com)
The questions are all about the age. And they've been all about the age for so long that old man Randy Couture can't remember anything else. The "Natural" is so old that even other fighters get asked about his age. And age will certainly be a factor Saturday after UFC 102 in Portland when fans will either declare the 46-year-old former heavyweight champion washed up or a miracle of nature. "He seems 21 to me," Quentin Chong told MMAjunkie.com. "He does not have an old body."

Brett Rogers: When I Beat Fedor, I'll Become the God of MMA
(mma.fanhouse.com)
What Brett Rogers lacks in MMA experience, he certainly makes up for in confidence. The 10-0 heavyweight, who recently agreed to fight Fedor Emelianenko later this fall, has never been shy about telling the world how good he is. When he meets one of the best fighters in the world on Showtime, he will have the opportunity to show them. FanHouse spoke to Rogers on Thursday about this opportunity of a lifetime and how he plans on defeating Emelianenko. The full interview is below. Ariel Helwani: When we spoke two weeks ago in San Jose, you said you wanted to get paid what you thought you deserved if you fought Fedor Emelianenko. So now that the fight has been booked, are you happy with your purse? Brett Rogers: I could be a little happier; I always can be a little happier, right? I mean, but it's good. I can't complain.

WIUFF HONORS FALLEN EILERS WITH TITLE WIN
(mmaweekly.com)
In the short career of a fighter every fight is important, title fights even more so, but for former UFC and Pride fighter Travis “Diesel” Wiuff his recent IFC heavyweight title win on Aug. 15 in Canada had significance for a whole other reason. As Wiuff explained to MMAWeekly.com, having the chance to honor a fallen friend by following in his championship footsteps made the fight all that more important.

Used to fighting for UFC life, UFC 102's Ed Herman now fighting for family
(mmajunkie.com)
Among fighters, some superstitions are nearly universal. Never overlook a current opponent to talk about the next one. There is no such thing as a guaranteed victory. Three losses in a row can kill your career. Ed Herman knows the latter all too well. "Short Fuse" has been on the brink twice in his UFC career. Herman now faces undefeated Aaron Simpson at UFC 102 on Saturday in Portland, Ore.

Ryan Couture, Son of Randy Couture, Wins MMA Fight
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Ryan Couture, the 26-year-old son of UFC legend Randy Couture, looked like a chip off the old block in winning an amateur mixed martial arts fight on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Couture was knocked down after a series of hard punches from his opponent, Jimmy Spicuzza, early in their fight on Saturday night's Tuff-N-Uff amateur card. But Couture maintained his composure and quickly caught Spicuzza in an arm bar once the fight hit the ground, forcing Spicuzza to tap out just 1:22 into the first round.

Keith Jardine Talks Thiago Silva Fight, Brock Lesnar, and Techno Viking
(mma.fanhouse.com)
No one can confidently say Keith Jardine's UFC 102 fight against Thiago Silva is a must-win situation for "The Dean of Mean." Sure, he's coming off a unanimous decision loss to Rampage Jackson at UFC 96, but he also seemed to raise his stock in standing toe-to-toe with the hard-hitting Jackson for three full rounds. FanHouse spoke to Jardine about reinventing his game for his fight against Silva and the balancing act when it comes to marketing oneself to the fans. The full interview is below.

Pat Miletich Says He Hasn't Signed a New UFC Contract ... 'Yet'
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Over the weekend, Bloody Elbow noticed that Pat Miletich's profile was put back up on UFC.com. This led to speculation that the 41-year-old MMA veteran had re-signed with the UFC. Remember, prior to UFC 101 Miletich told FanHouse that he hoped to bury his long-standing grudge with UFC president Dana White. On Monday, Miletich told FanHouse that he had not signed a new contract with the UFC "yet," but seemed very open to the idea of making his return to the Octagon in the near future. Of course, he also said the hatchet had been buried between both sides.

Nogueira’s coach: “Couture has no punch”
(mmamania.com)
“We think that Couture will fight standing against him, and Rodrigo thinks that too. Rodrigo is 100% prepared standing. I always said that this fight were good to Rodrigo, because Couture has no punch to knock him out, and Rodrigo boxes better than him… Rodrigo is prepared in the ground too and will work to submit, because Rodrigo has everything to submit him”, explained the coach. “Our strategy is stay away from the fence”. – Luiz Alves, the Muay Thai coach for Antonio Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira, tells Tatame.com that his fighter is set to stand and trade with Randy Couture at UFC 102 because the “Natural” doesn’t pack much heat on his feet. He may be right — Couture doesn’t have a clean knockout on his resume in 25 career fights. But that hasn’t necessarily stopped him from handling (and defeating) the big dogs, including Tim Sylvia, Chuck Liddell, Vitor Belfort, Tito Ortiz, Pedro Rizzo and Kevin Randleman, among others. Will he add “Big Nog” to that list on Aug. 29? For the record: Nogueira has one knockout, and just one technical knockout, in 37 career fights.
