Tyron Woodley More Interested in Fighting Rory MacDonald Than Demian Maia
(sherdog.com)
Fresh off a vicious knockout of Jay Hieron in his UFC debut on Saturday, Tyron Woodley is hoping for a busy year in the Octagon. In fact, he’s already told UFC President Dana White that he’ll be available if someone drops out of the March 16 showdown between Carlos Condit and Rory MacDonald. It’s MacDonald in particular that Woodley has his eye on. “I want to fight him,” Woodley told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “If anything happens with Carlos Condit, God forbid, or something happens with that fight, I already told Dana White.”

UFC's First Set of Official Rankings
(ufc.com)
Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC and a fighter can only appear in one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.

Jose Aldo-Anthony Pettis considered
(espn.go.com)
"Something interesting happened about 10 minutes ago," said White, at the postfight press conference. "Anthony Pettis said, 'I want to go to 145 and fight Jose Aldo.' He told me he'll make 145." "It didn't cross my mind until he texted me, but it's crossing my mind now," White said. "I like it, and I like Pettis." Aldo (22-1), who defeated Edgar via unanimous decision, expressed interest in the fight. "It's up to Dana, but it's an interesting fight," Aldo said. "I train to fight the best. I respect them all. I think Pettis is close to a title shot in his own division." Personally it think aldo needs to go to 155, the cut seems to be getting to be too much. he even said he always get sick doing it.

Michael Bisping responds to rumors that Vitor Belfort failed his UFC on FX 7 drug test
(mmamania.com)
Did Vitor Belfort fail his UFC on FX 7 drug test? Michael Bisping, who was knocked out by "The Phenom" last month in Brazil (see it here), is hoping the nasty little rumor making the rounds on Twitter isn't true. While Tatame reports the drug test results won't be released until later this month, Belfort may unfortunately (and unfairly) be held guilty until proven innocent, at least in the court of public opinion, following his steroid scandal back in 2006, which was later compounded by allegations of TRT use. Stay tuned.
