Worth the weight: UFC 130 interview exclusive with Thiago Alves
(mmamania.com)
When Thiago Alves lost his title shot against welterweight deity Georges St. Pierre at UFC 100, many felt it was only a matter of time before the promising 25-year-old would be back in title contention. But in the last two years, Alves has seen his share of physical setbacks that continually haunted the scheduling of his long-awaited rematch against perennial contender Jon Fitch. First, there was a knee injury, forcing him from their UFC 107 meeting; then there was the discovery of an arteriovenous malformation in his brain discovered just days before their UFC 111 fight; corrective surgery followed.

UFC contender Jon Fitch says GSP, B.J. Penn are only fights that make sense
(mmajunkie.com)
In 15 UFC outings, welterweight contender Jon Fitch has defeated all but two opponents. Not surprisingly, Fitch (23-3-1 MMA, 13-1-1 UFC) feels those rematches – against current champion Georges St-Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC) and ex-titleholder B.J. Penn (16-7-2 MMA, 12-6-2 UFC) – are the only fights that make any sense for him. Fitch discussed those bouts and his injury recovery on Friday's new edition of "Inside MMA" on HDNet.

GSP Opens As -425 Favorite to Diaz +325 Underdog For Rumored UFC Bout
(mmaweekly.com)
Even though the fight isn’t yet official, the odds have opened on the potential UFC welterweight title fight with champion Georges St-Pierre as a huge favorite over potential challenger Nick Diaz. The odds come courtesy of Nick Kalikas from BetonFighting.com According to the odds released late Saturday night, St-Pierre opened at a -425 favorite with Nick Diaz coming in as the underdog at +325. In his last fight against Jake Shields, who is of course a teammate and close friend of Diaz, St-Pierre came in at nearly -500 odds, so he’s not quite as much of a favorite this time around, but he’s very close...

(mmafighting.com)
It had only been a few days since Randy Couture retired from mixed martial arts competition after his UFC 129 fight with Lyoto Machida when he returned home to Las Vegas, and one of his first stops was one of his most familiar ones: the cage. Couture walked into his Xtreme Couture gym, changed into his workout clothes and commenced training with a group of pro fighters. Comeback, anyone? "Everyone was scratching their heads looking at me going, 'You know, this is how rumors get started,'" Couture says with a laugh.

Off the couch and on the road, Brandon Vera seeking UFC redemption
(mmajunkie.com)
If you shot a time-lapse picture of Brandon Vera on the day the UFC released him from his contract, you would see him sitting on the couch, still, as the sun rose and set in the horizon. Sure, Vera (11-6 MMA, 7-6 UFC) had lost before – several times, in fact, for a variety of reasons. But hearing word that he would no longer work for the world's biggest fight promotion – that he was out of a job – was particularly devastating.
