Dominick Cruz takes aim again at 'meathead jock' T.J. Dillashaw
(mmafighting.com)
It's no world tour, but the promotion leading up to T.J. Dillashaw's Jan. 17 UFC bantamweight title defense to Dominick Cruz has some similar undertones. If Conor McGregor laid out the blueprint on how to sell the lower weight classes Cruz has been taking notes. Cruz fired the first major shot when the pair visited Boston, the site of the bout, back in November when he dressed Dillashaw down, called his coach Duane Ludwig a "sad pimp," and still couldn't get the champ to play ball.

Khabib Nurmagomedov wants winner of Anthony Pettis vs. Eddie Alvarez, has unfinished business with Nate Diaz
(mmafighting.com)
Undefeated UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov hasn't fought since April 2014, but he isn't looking for an easy tune-up fight when he makes his return to the Octagon. According to Ariel Helwani on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight, Nurmagomedov (22-0) is looking toward the winner of Jan. 17's UFC Fight Night 81 clash between Anthony Pettis (18-3) and Eddie Alvarez (26-4) for his next outing. Nurmagomedov told Helwani he's not interested in talking trash or ruffling feathers – he just believes Pettis and Alvarez are the best guys ahead of him in the rankings, and a win over either of them would propel him toward the UFC lightweight title.

Manager: Jacare Souza wants Chris Weidman or Yoel Romero rematch, feels Romero 'played dirty'
(mmafighting.com)
Ronaldo Souza's title chances were dashed Dec. 12 at UFC 194 in Las Vegas, where Yoel Romero defeated him via split decision, snapping an eight-fight winning streak in the process. According to Souza's manager, Gilberto Faria, that loss – and the circumstances surrounding it – left Souza with a bad taste in his mouth. "We still have not digested the judges' decision," Faria told Ariel Helwani in a statement that was aired Wednesday evening on UFC Tonight. "Romero played dirty. If you look at the footage, he held the fence twice to avoid the takedown sequence in the second round and poked Jacare's eyes in the third."

Dustin Poirier completes surgery for broken nose, expects to be out six weeks
(mmajunkie.com)
Poirier (19-4 MMA, 11-3 UFC) wasted little time going under the knife following two breaks to his nose in a UFC 195 bout with Joseph Duffy (14-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) earlier this month. “The Diamond” defeated Duffy by unanimous decision, but absorbed several hard shots to the face early in the fight that sent blood leaking from his nose at a high rate for more than two rounds. Four days after the big win, Poirier went under the knife to fix several breaks to his nasal structure.

Neil Magny attends seminar hosted by former opponent Demian Maia

For UFC welterweight Neil Magny, the roughly eight minutes he spent in the cage with Demian Maia at UFC 190 this past August was about as humbling an experience as a fighter could have. He came into the fight riding a seven-fight winning streak, hadn’t lost in almost two years, and was feeling pretty confident about his chances against the Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist.

Rockhold: I don't want to fight at UFC 199
(mixedmartialarts.com)
UFC champ Luke Rockhold has the foresight to know that when a big fight or event is on the horizon, much of what surrounds it gets lost in the shuffle. Rockhold (15-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) said that’s exactly what’s going to happen as July’s UFC 200 event draws near, which is why he wants his first middleweight title defense to take place on that mega-card, which airs July 9 on pay-per-view from the new Las Vegas Arena. “I would say (I want to fight in) May, June or July, but UFC 200 would be cool,” Rockhold told MMAjunkie Radio. “I don’t want to be on UFC 199, I’ll tell you that. The hype for 200 will be so big it will take away from 199. Who wants to be on 199? I want to be on 198 or 200. That would be cool, even if I’m not main eventing.”

For three long months, Tyron Woodley was the UFC's official No. 1 welterweight contender in waiting. But the fight game tends to have its own mind when it comes to matters like these, and after Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit set Las Vegas ablaze with an instant classic Saturday night at UFC 195, Woodley knows he may have some work to do if he wants to preserve his spot as the next in line. "Even before the fifth round, the way that the fight was going, I already was thinking, ‘goddamnit, they're about to do this fight again,'" Woodley said Monday on The MMA Hour. "We are in the era of the rematch. People want to see a rematch every other weekend. How many rematches have you seen?
