VIDEO | Wanderlei Silva Ready To Break Sonnen’s Nose, Make Him Swallow His Own Teeth
Wanderlei Silva has an intense and clear message for Chael Sonnen! “I’m only waiting for the date and the location. Because the people want this fight and I want this fight. Sonnen, I will beat you up, you coward… why do I have so many fans? Why does everybody want to watch me fight? Why are you my fan? It’s because I fight with all my heart. “I don’t go int here to give up. Like Sonnen did against Jones in the very first round. Like he did against Anderson, when a knee to the chest and stayed down like a little girl. “Sonnen is a lower level fighter. Don’t listen to what that fool says. Now you’ve messed with the wrong guy, and I will beat you up.

UFC Fight Night 27's Hatsu Hioki views Darren Elkins matchup as 'new beginning'
It's safe to say that after four trips to the octagon, Hatsu Hioki's UFC career has not gone according to plan. Upon signing with the organization in 2011, Hioki was considered to be one of the most dominant 145-pound fighters in the world after a run of success that saw him win nine of 10 fights. His first two UFC appearances were bumpy, but he got the job done with wins over George Roop and Bart Palaszewski. But once he was paired against the next level of fighters in the division, such as Ricardo Lamas and Clay Guida, it all went downhill.

ACL tear sidelines UFC featherweight Conor McGregor for 10 months
For now, all the talk was for naught for Conor McGregor, as will be his hope to fight on the UFC's Manchester card in October. McGregor suffered a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament, a strain to his medial collateral ligament and a meniscal tear of his posterior horn, according to UFC President Dana White, who late Thursday delivered the news to "FOX Sports Live." McGregor, White said, is expected to be on the shelf for upwards of 10 months. McGregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) suffered the injuries this past Saturday in his dominant win over Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26 at TD Garden in Boston.

Dana White: Wanderlei Silva Won't Fight Chael Sonnen, Wants PPV Points
All of Chael Sonnen's tough talk that Wanderlei Silva has been ducking him for years could arguably have some merit, based on the latest update on the potential grudge match by UFC President Dana White. White told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani that negotiations for this heavily anticipated matchup have come to a standstill since "The Axe Murderer" wants PPV points in order to fight Sonnen. "[Silva] said he won't fight him unless he gets PPV [points] so I guess he's gonna retire," White said to Helwani through a text message. When asked what he plans on doing with Sonnen next, White wrote, "we will figure it out."

Tom Lawlor tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus against Michael Kuiper in April
Following his April 6 win over Michael Kuiper, Tom Lawlor said Kuiper hurt his knee in the early minutes of the fight. Did he ever. Lawlor told MMAFighting.com on Thursday that when Kuiper landed a judo throw in the first two minutes of their fight in Stockholm, Sweden, he tore the ACL, MCL and meniscus in his right knee. Amazingly, Lawlor overcame the injury to submit Kuiper via guillotine choke in the second round.
