Michael Bisping cleared to train, wants higher-ranked opponent than Tim Kennedy
Michael Bisping was in a chipper mood on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight on FOX Sports 1. And why shouldn't he be? Bisping, who has been sidelined due to a detached retina, got some good news from the doctor earlier in the day. "I was at the doctors this morning, they've given me the green light to start proper training again," said Bisping. "I've been running and lifting weights for awhile. Now I can get back in the gym and start working on a few things."

Johny Hendricks Says His “Knee is Fine,” Doesn’t Expect to be Sidelined Until 2014
ollowing a loss to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167 over the weekend, Johny Hendricks not only ended up on the wrong end of a split decision, he also wound up on the Nevada State Athletic Commission medically suspended list. Hendricks mentioned an issue with his right knee in his post-fight medical examination at the arena, so Nevada officials determined that he needed to go get it cleared by an orthopedic doctor or he would have to sit on the sidelines until May 17, 2014. It’s a common practice for any medical issue a fighter might have that is difficult to fully assess with the limited resources on site after a fight. Hendricks on Wednesday, however, told UFC Tonight, “I played golf today. My knee is fine.”

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre fueled a quagmire of conjecture following his UFC 167 victory overJohny Hendricks, saying, “I am going to hang my gloves up for a little bit and make sense of my life. I have to go away for a little bit at least. Personal things are happening. I have to step away for a bit; that’s all I can say right now.” He might have been better off saying nothing at all.

Tyron Woodley says American Top Team welterweights are in a race for UFC title
It’s nothing new in MMA – by and large, teammates don’t like to fight teammates. Had Rory MacDonald beaten Robbie Lawler on Saturday at UFC 167, a win by teammate Georges St-Pierre may have just been the next big situation with a teammate/friend/training partner asked to fight his gym brethren. Lawler put a stop to that in a big way with an upset win over MacDonald. But all that did was keep American Top Team welterweights on the rise in the UFC. Right before Lawler’s win, Tyron Woodley won the “Knockout of the Night” bonus by decimating Josh Koscheck in the first round. Along with recent welterweight addition Hector Lombard and fellow UFC 167 winner Jason High, ATT has its 170-pounders rocking. So what happens down the road if one of them has to go through the other to get to a title?
