Quebec Athletic Commission investigating Paul Daley after UFC 113 sucker punch
(mmajunkie.com)
Although the smoking gun is in plain sight, the Quebec Athletic Commission is conducting an investigation to determine whether to suspend welterweight Paul Daley's fight license. Daley drew unanimous scorn this past Saturday when he slugged opponent Josh Koscheck after the final bell in a title eliminator bout at UFC 113. UFC president Dana White quickly condemned Daley's actions and said the fighter, who dropped a unanimous decision, will no longer fight in his promotion.

Paul Daley: 'There Is No Excuse for My Actions' at UFC 113
(mmafighting.com)
Paul Daley apologized on Sunday for hitting Josh Koscheck with a sucker punch after their UFC 113 fight, a gesture that may be the first step in repairing his tarnished image, but that likely won't be enough to get him back into the UFC which fired him immediately after the incident. "I've had a long flight home to consider my actions and regret the mistake I made on Saturday. I would like to apologise to the UFC and the Athletic Commission for what I've done as well as all the fans and sponsors that support me," the English Daley said in a prepared statement he gave the Telegraph. "I would also like to offer my sincerest apologies to Josh Koscheck who did not deserve the cheap shot I threw. He did what he needed to do in order to win the fight and get the job done, and I foolishly reacted to the situation."

Quinton Jackson Fighting To KO Rashad Evans-Not For Glory Or Fame
(mmamania.com)
And in recent comments he made on Michael Bisping's website, he wants people to know that...and that apparently he can talk about other fighters without saying "whoop their @$$" at some point. "I still want to clear [something] up...some of my fans don't understand why I didn't fight Rashad in the beginning. I don't think...the fans that don't understand now, I don't think they'll ever understand. Just because I'm a fighter, doesn't mean I can't do other things. I just want my fans to know...no matter what, even though I haven't been in the cage for a while...people think that I went Hollywood, people always got negative stuff to say. People always underestimate me. I've been in this game for a while; I just think it's funny. I'm just gonna go out there and do my job. I wanna knock Rashad out as quick as possible and get on with my career ... I don't fight for glory and fame like some fighters. I don't wanna walk around acting all tough coz I'm a fighter. But when people run they mouth like Rashad...they get dealt with. I hope he learns his lesson."

Appearing on ESPN2’s MMA Live just moments after his title-clinching stoppage of Lyoto Machida at UFC 113 in Montreal, “Shogun” was blunt when asked by host Jon Anik if he would fight the fellow Brazilian. “Yes, of course. I’m a professional fighter,” said Rua (19-4).

Will "Stubborn" Or "Smart" Josh Koscheck Show Up Against Paul Daley?
(mmamania.com)
According to AKA teamamte Jon Fitch, it depends. "You don’t know what’s going on in his head sometimes. Like when he fought Thiago, it was his goal to stand and trade with him. But I think we’ve seen the clear path to beating Paul Daley, when Jake Shields fought and beat him. (Daley) probably is the most dynamic striker in the weight class. He is the most technical and probably the most explosive and powerful. So there’s not too many guys who would do well in a stand up fight with him. It all depends on what Josh decides to do the night of the fight. I think the grappling aspect would fare fairly well."

Dana White says WEC's PPV numbers qualify it as second-best MMA organization
(mmajunkie.com)
MONTREAL – UFC president Dana White can often be just as telling in what he doesn't say as he is as blunt with what he does. Such is the case when the UFC and WEC head is asked about the final numbers for the WEC's first pay-per-view event, "Aldo vs. Faber." As a privately held company, Zuffa, LLC, the parent company of both the UFC and WEC, isn't required to divulge its financial information, but the bright smile of White leads you to believe the numbers must have been positive.

White: If Silva beats Sonnen and Belfort, he'll need to vacate title to compete at 205
(mmajunkie.com)
MONTREAL – With any fighter in any division, looking beyond that competitor's next matchup is never a safe thing to do. That's true even with the seemingly unbeatable UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who faces top contender Chael Sonnen at UFC 117 in August. But when you're 11-0 in the UFC, a different set of rules tends to apply. And while UFC president Dana White believes Sonnen may prove Silva's toughest test in recent memory, he does have an idea of where a win would take "The Spider." Full Article

Machida Knows His Karate Is Not Going To Defeat Muay Thai
(mmamania.com)
So according to his muay thai coah, Andre Amado, Lyoto Machida will probably want ot work his jiu-jitsu to beat Mauricio Rua at UFC 113. "Shogun is hungry for this fight, and we are already feeling the taste of the belt. Shogun shows in each training session the desire to beat Machida. I do not want to be in Machida’s shoes because Shogun will take this belt with his kicks. He knows that his karate is not going to defeat Muay Thai. In my coach’s opinion, he will want to work his jiu-jitsu with Shogun. I think he will not fight Muay Thai because he saw that in the last fight he was badly hurt and was not effective. So I think he will want to work his jiu-jitsu. We already have the strategy to beat Machida."

Marcus Davis "Built For Speed" Against Jonathan Goulet
(mmamania.com)
And he hopes it will help counter, among other things, what seems to be the home-octagon advantage he's been up against recently. "I always seem to fight guys in their hometowns, like U.S. Marine Shonie Carter at a Marine base. I also fought Paul Kelley in Birmingham, England; Paul Taylor in London; Jess Liaudin in Newcastle, England; and Pete Spratt in Houston. He does have a slight reach advantage, but I'm a lot faster than he is. At some point in this fight, I'm going to hit him on the chin, so the question is whether he'll be able to take that. If he can't, he'll have to somehow keep me on the ground and grind out a decision or cut me. I think I'm a better wrestler and grappler. I'm built for speed on this fight. I'm nowhere near as big as I usually am. Normally I'm 185 and cut down for the event. This one, I won't have to cut down at all."

Matt Mitrione Will Be Fighting Kimbo Slice The Man, Not The Hype
(mmamania.com)
Matt Mitrione has been called a lot of things in his short time in the fight game. A whiner, a faker, a wannabe, and of course most notably... a meathead. But come this Saturday night (May 8) at UFC 113 in Montreal, he's looking to add one more moniker to the list... a mixed martial artist. The former NFL player has a rare opportunity in front of him to defeat a man who is more widely recognized than just about anybody in the sport. A man known for his persona far more than his fighting prowess. That man is of course none other than Kimbo Slice. Whether or not a win over Slice is impressive in the eyes of true fight fans, it's a win that will undoubtedly increase his name recognition. And at this point in his young MMA career, it's more than Mitrione can ask for. Mitrione spoke to Larry Pepe on this week's episode of Pro MMA Radio about getting into MMA, Kimbo, and The House.

Dana Says 112 Amends Still Coming, Likely Won't Include Silva
(mmajunkie.com)
Following April's UFC 112 event in Abu Dhabi, UFC president Dana White made little attempt to hide his displeasure with his middleweight champion, Anderson Silva. After Silva first taunted, then avoided, challenger Demian Maia, White called the fight an "embarrassment," and promised to "make it up" to the fans. On Thursday, at the pre-event press conference for UFC 113 at Montreal's Bell Centre, White said that atonement is still forthcoming. "I'll get on my Twitter every once in a while and people will be like, 'Hey, when are you making it up to us?'" White said. "Give me some [expletive] time. I will. I've got to find the right time and the right opportunity." Many fans have suggested White take a big fight that would normally fall to a pay-per-view event and instead put it on basic cable with either of the UFC's broadcast partners, Spike TV or Versus. White seemed warm to the idea, though he refused to commit to the deal.
