Junior Dos Santos- "Cain hits like a girl"
( bjpenn.com)
In an interview with the Brazilian Portuguese language radio show “Pânico” former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos (16-2 MMA, 10-1 UFC) had the following to say about his UFC 166 opponent Cain Velasquez (12-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC): “I had no cut against Cain Velasquez, and he hits like a girl. He hit me a lot during the five rounds, but did not open any cuts, although I was very bloated and had to go to the hospital.” The mention of the hospital refers to a potentially fatal medical condition that JDS developed while training for their second fight, which Velasquez won decisively at UFC 155.The pair will meet for a third time this fall when they headline UFC 166 in Houston, Texas on October 19th.

UFC's Dana White: I don't know why Anderson Silva likes to f--- with the media
Middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva claims he doesn't even have Dana White's digits, let alone the desire to lobby for a fight with Jon Jones. During a media teleconference today in support of UFC 162, Silva denied that he called the UFC president post-UFC 159 to request his next opponent, which White then hinted to be the light-heavy champ. "I think everyone already knows that I didn't call Dana," Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) said. "I don't even have his phone number personally." That's news to White, who today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Silva did call him following the April 27 event in Newark, N.J. "I don't know why he loves to f--- with the media," said White. "Ask (Anthony) Pettis if he called me that night (after UFC 156). Jones said he didn't tell me he wanted to HURT Chael (Sonnen), but he did. I think the guys don't like that I tell the media everything. Roy Nelson and his wife don't like it either."

Tito Ortiz Questions Bonnar's Hall of Fame Status
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."
