Chael Sonnen says contract expired, offers list of demands for new UFC deal
We've heard this bit from Chael Sonnen (27-13-1 MMA, 6-6 UFC) before, but if the self-proclaimed "Gangster from West Linn, Oregon" is to be believed, he's waiting to sign a new contract before his headlining bout with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua – and he's apparently got a list of demands in hand. "My contract with the UFC has expired," Sonnen said during fan-driven Q&A session at this past weekend's UFC Fan Expo. "So I went to Dana White, and I went to him with a list of my demands because he's getting my contract together. He thought this was a gag, but I was being serious because it's not all about money with me."

Fortunes changed for five at UFC 162
When Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche headlined UFC 157 on Feb. 23, the feeling in the building going in is that we were going to see one of the most historically significant nights in MMA history. The company didn’t miss a beat, promoting the show as "History in the making." Going into UFC 162, there was no such feeling, even though all of Anderson Silva’s records were on the line against an opponent that figured to have the best shot of beating him of anyone he had faced. Chris Weidman winning the title would have been big news under any circumstances. But the nature of those circumstances made it even bigger. It’s very rare when a second-round knockout leaves the public unconvinced over who is really the better fighter...

Signal to Noise: UFC 162's best and worst
There was much to love and hate about UFC 162. The successful return of Frankie Edgar was a welcome sight, but the languid performance of Chris Leben and the odd reaction of some Anderson Silva fans have been difficult to tolerate. It's time we separate the winners from the losers, the best from the worst and the signal from the noise...

Ref Herb Dean was unsure if Anderson Silva was faking or unconscious at UFC 162
Veteran referee Herb Dean had refereed four Anderson Silva fights prior to UFC 162 and seen others cageside. So when Silva began to clown Chris Weidman in the main event of this past Saturday's pay-per-view, he did little else but pay close attention.
