Josh Thomson has an eye on Donald Cerrone – and the UFC lightweight title
At first, it sounded like veteran fighter Josh Thomson was ready to retire from MMA. "My days of trying to plead for notoriety are over," he told a small group of reporters prior to UFC 160 this past Saturday at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. "I don't care. I just want to fight Benson. If I get the title shot, I can end my career and be done. I want to end my career with my title shot, and just get ready for whatever happens."

Chuck Liddell: 'Anderson Silva is one of my favorite fighters ... but I would have beat him'
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Hall-of-Famer Chuck Liddell likes to one-up his former rival, Tito Ortiz, in as many ways possible. It wasn't that long ago when "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" told reporters he would have "dominated" current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones had they ever fought when Ortiz was in his prime. See those comments here. Now Liddell, who retired in 2010 following a string of brutal losses, is going one step further by insisting he would have defeated reigning UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, no stranger to the 205-pound weight class, had "The Spider" tried to get loud while "The Iceman" ruled the roost. His comments (via Fighters Only): "I would beat him, I always said that I would. I have the advantage in weight and height, so it would be more likely that I would beat him. But Anderson is one of my favorite fighters." And just for shits and giggles, he'd even entertain the idea of an Octagon return to face "Bones." Liddell (21-8) at one time was the most popular -- and most dangerous -- fighter UFC had on its roster. During a nearly three-year period, beginning at UFC 47 in 2004, "The Iceman" racked up seven straight wins by way of knockout or technical knockout.

Cat Zingano out of The Ultimate Fighter 18 with injury, Miesha Tate now coaches opposite Ronda Rousey
Unbeaten Cat Zingano, who was slated to coach opposite women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, injured a knee and was replaced as coach by long-time Rousey rival Miesha Tate. Rousey did not know that Zingano was injured - UFC president Dana White said it had been a tightly kept company secret since Zingano injured her right knee during a May 16 workout - or that Tate had been brought in to replace her, until the opening scenes of the show were filmed on Tuesday. When Tate came out, Rousey was clearly stunned and she stormed out of the UFC training center, searching for White. She later said she was angry because she thought Tate was replacing her.
