Tito Ortiz Questions Bonnar's Hall of Fame Status
(sports.yahoo.com)
and I quote: "As far as Stephan, I have nothing against the guy, but you've got to be a world champion, I think, to be in the Hall of Fame ... That's a big honor to be in the Hall of Fame," Ortiz said to MMA Junkie. "It means you had a significance in the sport at one time or another. You look at that, and the Forrest and Stephan fight was a big step for the UFC, so do they deserve it? Possibly. But can one fight get you in the Hall of Fame? I don't know. I guess that's Dana's decision."

Josh Burkman: I wouldn't leave WSOF for UFC
(mmajunkie.com)
Josh Burkman is a man of his word. So when he signs a contract, you can expect him to fulfill the terms of it. That's why the resurgent welterweight, who upset former UFC title challenger Jon Fitch this past weekend in World Series of Fighting 3's main event, won't be returning to the UFC even if his former home made him a new offer. Right now, his loyalty is to the WSOF, where he's 3-0 with wins over Fitch, Aaron Simpson and Gerald Harris. Now 8-1 since his 2008 UFC release, Burkman recently nabbed an honorable mention slot in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA welterweight rankings.
