Lyoto Machida: It Was My Fighters Heart Against My Professional Mind
(addictedmma.com)
Amid the scramble to find a replacement for an injured Phil Davis at UFC 133, UFC turned to former champion Lyoto Machida. It seemed set at first, with Dana White confident that Machida was stepping up. But it turned out that the only way Machida was accepting the short notice bout with Rashad Evans was if UFC opened up their ever fattening wallet. After eventually finding Tito Ortiz to fight Evans in UFC 133 main event, UFC president Dana White let it be known that Machida was asking for "Anderson Silva money." Now, speaking to TATAME.com, Machida reveals his take on the situation: “UFC invited me for a bout with three weeks in advance and I said I wouldn’t take it since the beginning. I wasn’t prepared for it, it’d be against my own principles of professionalism, against what my family and team believe, and didn’t want me to fight." Said former Light Heavyweight champion Machida.

(addictedmma.com)
Pound for Pound (P4P)....The term splits fans down the middle, some love doing P4P lists, others see them as ridiculous nonsense.

Here is what UFC President Dana White thinks: "Many people think that Jon Jones should be considered one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world...........

Yushin Okami Feels That He Lost First Fight With Anderson Silva
(bloodyelbow.com)
Yushin Okami will be challenging Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight title at UFC 134, and most fans know that this is a rematch of the 2006 battle at Rumble on the Rock 8 in Hawaii. Okami won the first bout by disqualification after Anderson used an illegal kick from his guard to hurt Okami, who was unable to continue. Okami spoke to Tatame about that bout, and while he has the W on his record, he doesn't feel like he won the fight: "I won by DQ, but I felt I lost that fight," he said, responding to Anderson, who said he faked he was hurt to stop the fight. "There was a damage. There is no point to talk about past things so I don't really care of what people say about last fight. However, that experience made me stronger and as a result I was able to fight in UFC afterwards so I really thank and respect Silva. The word that he says to that I was dressed in damage last is past. I am not dressed. This time I will fight with respect and it will be a chance to show who's the best".

UFC Quick Quote: Rashad Evans is going to 'smash' Tito Ortiz
(mmamania.com)
"I feel right now honestly, not to be disrespectful, but I don't think there's anybody who could beat me, so I didn't care who they put in front of me. I've had a lot more experience since [our first fight]. I've been in a lot of big fights, had a lot of success, and that says it all. For him, he's been on a rocky road. He's had to go down a path he never walked before. Losing all those times in a row, all that heartbreak, stuff like that. You never know how that hurts someone's mentality ... The challenge kind of got extinguished a little bit. He wasn't staying consistently hot. It was something I thought about back then, but as time went on, I thought about guys who would be more of a challenge. Coming off this win, it's looking like he's got a little fire underneath him. He's moving in the right direction, so right now is the perfect chance to fight him again. If he wants to fight, I appreciate him taking the fight, but I'm going to smash him. I've been training so long, I just want to fight somebody." - Rashad Evans

(bloodyelbow.com)
Hougland said he tried out for the upcoming season of "The Ultimate Fighter," the first to feature featherweights and bantamweights, but did not make it through Spike TV after clearing the UFC's cuts. Needing an additional bout to fill out the UFC 132 card, the UFC announced the Hougland and Walker fight nine days prior to the show. "My manager was kind of talking to them, he had given them a call and they just called back and offered the fight," Hougland said. "Of course I'm not going to say no to the UFC." If this is who they cut from the show I CANNOT WAIT to see who made it. Bisping and Miller have insisted this is the best season ever
