Backstage Drama Ends Jason Mayhem Miller UFC Career, Dana White Confirms
(bloodyelbow.com)
Something involving Jason"Mayhem" Miller happened backstage after his fight against C.B. Dollaway at UFC 146. The details are not out yet, but the repercussions are already beginning to roll in. The press conference seemed as if it was business as usual this time around, but several odd beats were dropped - including the announcements of the "Of The Night" awards. Dana White then let loose a very tasty nugget of information regarding what happened to the outlandish host of MTV's Bully Beatdown, Mayhem Miller.

Brock Lesnar Attends UFC 146, Dana White Hints Brock May Be Back
(bloodyelbow.com)
Former UFC Heavyweight champion and current WWE superstar Brock Lesnar made an unusual appearance at tonight's UFC 146 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The notoriously reclusive Lesnar is not someone often seen in the crowd at a UFC event. In the past his appearances in the crowd usually indicated he was negotiating with the promotion. UFC president Dana White certainly wasn't denying that was a possibility. At the post-fight press conference, White pointedly refused to deny that Lesnar's return was a possibility. Then he ramped up the hints that Lesnar could return but admitted he had not spoken to Lesnar. Yahoo! reporter Kevin Iole tweeted that White told him as much:

@KevinI: Dana asked if anything more to Lesnar being here, he said yes. Possibly may come back

UFC president Dana White open to another comeback season of 'The Ultimate Fighter'
(mmajunkie.com)
Eleven seasons have passed since "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series featured a "comeback" season, but another one could be on the way. Following Friday's regular-season finale of "The Ultimate Fighter: Live" – the first season on FX and the first with live fights – UFC president Dana White admitted interest in a season that would exclusively feature former UFC fighters. The success of the first one, "TUF 4," is a big reason why. That season took place in 2006 on Spike TV and featured 16 fighters with previous UFC experience. While the decision to give the middleweight and welterweight "TUF" winners immediate title shots initially was met with criticism, it resulted in one of MMA's biggest upsets. After winning "TUF 4" with a narrow win over Chris Lytle, Matt Serra earned a title shot and then upset welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 69. So would White consider a second comeback season? "Of course," White said. "I think enough time has gone by by where there's enough guys out there where you could do that type of show again." -------------------====================---------------- Saw this article and loved it so decided to share If it was None Zuffa I'd like a line up like this: 1 Tim Sylvia 2 Mike Whitehead 3 Eddie Sanchez 4 Andrei Arlovski 5 Todd Duffee 6 Seth Petruzelli 7 Travis Wiuff 8 Abe Wagner 9 Joey Beltran 10 Neil Grove 11 Goran Reljic 12 Marcio Cruz 13 Pedro Rizzo - Especially if he beats Fedor 14 Paul Buentello 15Justin McCully 16 Sean McCorkle Heck even throw in Ricco Rodriguez or Tuchscherer or Morecraft or Tim Hague

A day after UFC Welterweight Nick Diaz was suspended for 1 year for testing positive for marijuana after UFC 143, his coach took to the airwaves to defend him. Cesar Gracie was a guest on “Just Scrap Radio” on BJPenn.com today and gave his thoughts about the Nevada State Athletic Commission hearing and did not hold back. “It was a joke really,” Gracie said. “I thought it was like a kangaroo court.” Gracie expressed that he felt that Diaz’s fate was decided before the hearing even began and that the point of the hearing was to make an example out of Diaz.
