Herb Dean says that (luckily) there wasn't any controversy with Anthony Pettis' armbar
(mmafighting.com)
Saturday night's UFC 164 lightweight title bout between Benson Henderson and Anthony Pettis ended in such confusing non-dramatic fashion as to create drama. Did Benson Henderson tap verbally when Pettis torqued that armbar in the first round, or did he physically tap? There was a brief three or four seconds when nobody really knew what happened as Pettis peeled off of Henderson and began to celebrate. The third man in the cage for that main event was Herb Dean, and he was on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour to clarify the sequence of events...

UFC Veteran, Sean “The Muscle Shark” Sherk is retiring from UFC
(trainingmask.com)
At the age of 40 and after an extraordinary 14 year career, Sean “Muscle Shark” Sherk is retiring from the UFC with a 38-4-1 record, but will always be remembered as a UFC Lightweight Champion. Sean Sherk began his road to the UFC as a wrestler at the age of 7. After 13 years of wrestling and 400 matches, Sherk began his martial art training with Greg Nelson at the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy. After realizing that his strong background in wrestling would give him a clear advantage in MMA, he decided to enter his first NHB fight in 1999 and won. Sherk accumulated an impressive 17-0-1 record before signing with the UFC in 2001. Sherk began his UFC career against Tiki Ghosen at UFC 30 (2001). After going an astounding 22-0-1 Sherk recorded his first loss to Matt Hughs. After losing his first fight, Sherk was more determined than ever and went on a remarkable 12 fight winning streak. In 2006, Sean Sherk became the UFC Lightweight World Champion after winning all five rounds and defeating Kenny Florian via unanimous decision. Sherk credits his win to his superior wrestling technique and unwavering stamina from practicing extreme cardio using the Training Mask, a product he cofounded.

Jose Aldo: Don't pay attention to Dana White, I'm not afraid to fight Anthony Pettis
(mmamania.com)
"I can fight Cain Velasquez if they want. It's not up to me, I'm not the matchmaker. I want to fight, I'm here to fight. I train everyday to destroy whoever they put in front of me. I'm not scared of anyone. They have two arms and two legs, and I will do my best and win. I agree with everything Andre says, and I can fight anyone. Sometimes Dana says things that you better not pay attention. (Dana) knows he promised us things and he knows he has to give us, so that's why he says those things. We'll see what happens."
