Dana White says Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva still isn't signed
(mmafighting.com)
The UFC's summer schedule currently lists a grudge match between bitter rivals, Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva, as the headliner of a UFC Fight Night card in Brazil on May 31. However, at least for the moment, the pairing between the two TUF Brazil 3 coaches appears to be wishful thinking more than a set-in-stone date.

Johny Hendricks Interview – UFC 171, Call of Duty and TRT
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
The #1 ranked UFC welterweight Johny Hendricks recently took some time to talk with PunchDrunkGamer about his upcoming fight at UFC 171 against Robbie Lawler, the recent ban on TRT, medical marijuana, Call of Duty and more. Enjoy!

PDG: When they were letting fighters use TRT, the commissions were still treating medical marijuana and recreational use of marijuana like a performance enhancing drug (PED). What is your opinion on that and should fighters be able to use medical marijuana? Johny Hendricks: Here is the thing, marijuana is still illegal in how many states, 50 out of 52! So your sitting there and knowing that it is illegal basically everywhere and so I look at that situation a little bit differently. I don’t know all of the facts about it but I do know that for one thing it can help you stay relaxed and calm. So that could give a fighter an edge going into a fight because if you were stressed, you could smoke a little bit, calm down and potentially give you an advantage going into the Octagon because you could have the mindset of “well I am not to worried about this fight”. Whereas your opponent could be really stressed out and it could cause him to make a mistake that costs him the fight. That brings us back to the TRT issue, what does it do to your body? Does it make 18 again?
