Dan Hardy Will Have Panic Attacks-Not Super Powers-At UFC 105
(mmamania.com)
So says Mike Swick, who apparently believes that the hometown crowd will not turn Dan Hardy into Superman. “You never know how fighters are gonna react to hearing either cheers or boos, but I don’t think the crowd’s gonna give him super powers. He’s gonna be the same fighter. He might have a better mentality and might be a little more pumped up when he walks out, but that’s what I want. I want him to be pumped up and I want to fight him at his best … "

Nick Osipczak to prove TUF-ness at UFC 105
(mmaweekly.com)
Coming out of The Ultimate Fighter Season 9 off the back of wars with Demarques Johnson and Frank Lester, things looked good for British welterweight prospect Nick Osipczak. Sporting a professional mixed martial arts record of 4-0, the young upstart knew he had to step up his training having been offered a three-fight deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Making the break from his usual London stomping ground, Osipczak decided to travel north to the Rough House in consideration of his rapport with the other TV show contestants Andre Winner and Dean Amasinger.

UFC Champs Healing,Plan Early 2010 Returns
(mmaweekly.com)
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is going to be without the services of two of its champions for the next few events, but when middleweight champ Anderson Silva and light heavyweight titleholder Lyoto Machida do run return, expect them to be even better versions of the athletes they already are. Both were due for a little maintenance after several years of fighting and headed into the shop for a tune-up after their most recent bouts. Silva had surgery on his elbow early in October, while Machida had a cleanout performed on his hand this past Friday. Neither was suffering from a major injury, merely the normal wear and tear that occurs over a combined 45 bouts.

Corey Hill making the comeback
(mmaweekly.com)
Corey Hill thinks of Dec. 10, 2008 every day. The 31-year-old lightweight won the first round of his fight with Dale Hartt at UFC’s “Fight for the Troops” and was just getting started in the second when Hartt kicked him in the leg. Hill did what he usually did back then, which was to answer force with force. He threw a counter leg kick, something to remind Hartt there would be no free throws against him. When the five-foot-10-inch Hartt checked the right leg of six-foot-four-inch Hill with his left shin, the impact shattered Hill’s tibia and fibula.

Good Things To Come For Ryan Bader
(mmajunkie.com)
Undefeated UFC light heavyweight Ryan Bader (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) continues to improve with each performance in the octagon, and his UFC 104 win over Eric Schafer (11-4-2 MMA, 3-3 UFC) was no exception. But while "The Ultimate Fighter 8" winner's wrestling prowess and physical tools are an obvious asset, Bader recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) his mind may finally be catching up with his body. "I felt this time I got in there, and I was relaxed," Bader said. "I think it's a good sign if I continue to do that in my next fight. I think this fight allowed me to turn a corner in my career." If Bader was feeling nervous before his previous wins over Carmelo Marrero or Vinny Magalhaes, it hardly showed. But the Arizona Combat Sports product said there was a definite difference in his mental state during his most recent contest.

Lyoto Machida undergoes surgery
(mmajunkie.com)
"He had surgery yesterday on his left hand," Soares said. "The doctor said it was a complete success." Soares said the procedure actually addressed a set of lingering issues rather than repairing something that occurred during Machida and Rua's hotly contested Oct. 24 bout in the main event of "UFC 104: Machida vs. Shogun." "Lyoto's hand has been actually injured for a while," Soares said. "Before the fight with 'Shogun,' he went to the doctor, and he went to a special surgeon in Brazil. Basically, they say said that he was going to need surgery, but he didn't want to cancel the fight. "He just roughed it through this training camp. The hand has been bothering him for quite a while now. It was one of those situations. He just roughed through it." While sharing the details of the surgery, Soares said it was important to note he was not trying to suggest Machida's hand issues in any way played a role in what many felt was a lackluster performance from the champ.

Ortiz Takes The High Road With Coleman
(mmaweekly.com)
Just a month ago, Tito Ortiz was slated to make his return to the Octagon and face UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman. An injury forced Coleman out of the bout, but the talk turned ugly days later when Coleman's manager got personal with an attack on Ortiz and his wife, Jenna Jameson. Mike DiSabato, Coleman's friend and manager, lashed out against Ortiz after he made a Twitter post commenting on Coleman pulling out of the fight. DiSabato went on to insult Ortiz's wife, making derogatory remarks towards her, later apologizing for his insensitive remarks.

Lyoto gave some knee blows and some punches, but hasn’t that strength that Shogun had on the fight, let’s say... He’s the new champion“, Silva pointed..that's also a video in the link

Josh Neer Gets His Walking Papers
(cagepotato.com)
After suffering his second loss in a row and his third defeat in the last four outings, Josh "The Dentist" Neer has been released from the UFC, ending his third tour of duty inside the Octagon. It's not exactly a surprise to anyone who saw his scrap with Gleison Tibau at UFC 104 last weekend. In a fight that never was pay-per-view quality to begin with, Neer spent three rounds getting slammed on his back and embarrassing the entire state of Iowa with his poor takedown defense before losing via unanimous decision. At UFC 101 in August he suffered a similar fate against Kurt Pellegrino, who also outwrestled Neer en route to a plodding decision.

Akiyama and Okami arrive at Xtreme Couture
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Yoshihiro Akiyama and Yushin Okami have arrived at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas for a month of training, and so far they are enjoying themselves immensely. The Japanese duo say the difference in training methods and partners is very refreshing. “I like how the practices aren’t long but short, hard workouts… The fighters are welcoming and friendly and as for the trainers, they are all awesome,” Akiyama told the Xtreme Couture website. “I have a hard time communicating due to my language barrier but I feel it’s beneficial for my fight career because I am able to look at their body language, learn the language and train hard.”

Dan Hardy on Swick: "Forget fight of the night, I want fight of the year"
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Dan Hardy is all focus as he prepares for his UFC 105 meeting with Mike ‘Quick’ Swick, and not even talk of a welterweight title shot against Georges St. Pierre should he win is enough to distract him from the task at hand. In fact, Hardy has two goals in mind. Beat Swick, and do it in such emphatic fashion that his critics are silenced. Some are saying that Hardy has bitten off more than he can chew with Swick, and it rankles the Nottingham man.

Karo Parisyan is going to eat Dustin Hazelett for breakfast
(mmamania.com)
“I think it’s a great style for me. It’s a great matchup. I eat Jiu Jitsu guys for breakfast a lot of times. He’s tough and he’s got really good Jiu Jitsu and good standup. He’s a well-rounded fighter, but I have fought 2 and 3-time Jiu Jitsu world champion guys man. And I’m a grappler myself so I really have some surprises for him. I have a tremendous respect for Dustin as an opponent. I don’t know him as a person, but he looks like a nice guy. But like I said, I have been training a lot with tall and lanky guys. I think it is a great matchup due to the fact that I should be able to overpower him, beat on him a little bit and catch him in submissions myself. Dustin is not going to do anything that I’ve never seen before. He’ not going to throw anything my way that I’ve never seen. He’s good off of his back and a good Jiu Jitsu guy, but that’s all he is. I’m a grappler myself, a Judo artist. I have good takedowns and my standup has come a long way, so it’s a very good matchup man. I can’t wait. I can’t wait to get in the cage and it’s going to be a lot of fun.” – Former number one welterweight contender Karo Parisyan talks about his road back to becoming relevant again in the crowded 170-pound title chase.
