Jon Jones Hopes Anderson Silva ‘just stays away’ From MMA
full story
“To see such a magnificent career and legacy get tarnished by two losses, two kind of flukish losses – I wouldn’t call the first one a fluke – it sucks,” he said. “It leaves a weird taste in your mouth, like it’s not supposed to end that way. What I’m hoping is that people remember Anderson for all the magnificent things he’s done, and all the lives he’s touched, and all the people he’s inspired, and I’m hoping that Anderson just stays away from the sport and continues to be an inspiration outside of the octagon… Not fight again. Anderson can do seminars, he can do motivational speaking, he can help all the kids in Brazil, I mean he’s such an idol. His greatness has just begun, but I think in the Octagon, I think it’s been already fun.”

Jessica Eye vs. Sarah Kaufman Fight Result Change Stems from Eye’s Failed Drug Trust
Sarah Kaufman vs Jessica EyeJessica Eye won a split decision victory over Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 at the Toyota Center in Houston. That is until Saturday, when reports surfaced that the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation had changed the result to a “no decision.” Initial reports did not include the reason for the result change, but the TDLR on Monday informed MMAWeekly.com that it was due to Eye testing positive for a banned substance at the time of the fight. The substance she tested positive for was not disclosed, but Eye received a penalty in the amount of $1,875 and has also been suspended for one year from the date the Administrative Order was signed, according to TDLR officials.
