Frank Mir: Brock Lesnar's MMA career 'would have been different' without diverticulitis
(mmamania.com)
For being a mixed martial arts (MMA) novice, Brock Lesnar did pretty well for himself during his tenure with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). After losing his Octagon debut to Frank Mir at UFC 81 five years ago, Lesnar went on to win the promotion's Heavyweight title, defeating UFC Hall of Famer and former two-division champion Randy Couture at UFC 91, just four fights into his MMA career. That was right before he sent Heath Herring into retirement after beating him down so bad at UFC 87 that "Crazy Horse" was never heard from again ... at least in the MMA world. Lesnar went on to defend his title twice, getting brutal revenge on Mir at UFC 100 and then scoring a come-from-behind submission victory over Shane Carwin at UFC 116. He would eventually cough up the coveted crown to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121. That's when his ongoing battle with diverticulitis and a subsequent surgery sidelined him for more than one year, forcing him to ponder MMA retirement. And according to his bitter rival, Mir, had Lesnar never gotten the life-threatening stomach disease, Lesnar's MMA career would have been drastically different. His words (via New York Post): "Honestly, I think the guy got so ill, he just couldn't do it anymore. He had to leave or his quality of life wouldn't have been normal. We didn't get to see the Brock I fought. Had he not been ill, things would have been different."

UFC President Dana White anticipates additional women's divisions in future
(mmajunkie.com)
As he watched a group of 50 women try out for the "The Ultimate Fighter 18," UFC President Dana White admitted he was impressed with the talent level of the fighters. And while his promotion currently employs only 135-pound women, White doesn't believe that will always be the case. "You would think so," White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) when asked if he expected to add more women's divisions to the UFC. "If you think about it, when we started this company, we had heavyweights, light heavyweights, middleweights and welterweights. That was it. When we brought in the 155-pound division, everybody was like, 'This is crazy. They're too small. Nobody will ever watch.'

So far, women more than proving their worth in UFC
(mmajunkie.com)
The first time two women fought in the UFC octagon, it was cause for an all-out media blitz by the world's largest MMA promotion. The second time felt more like just another fight — only better. At The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale in Las Vegas, undefeated bantamweight Cat Zingano (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) came from behind to beat former Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) by third-round TKO in easily the most exciting and brutal bout on the 12-fight card. The UFC deemed Zingano and Tate worthy of $50,000 "Fight of the Night" bonuses, and fans were reminded why female MMA fighters have a reputation for stealing the show in a male-dominated sport...
