Florian Hires Wrestling Coach, Back in 5 Months
(sherdog.com)
"I'm more motivated than ever. I'm pissed, to be honest. I want to crush my training. That's what I'm focused on right now. I just hired the assistant wrestling coach at Boston University (Sean Gray) to be my wrestling coach here in Boston and I have other plans for a lot of other things as far as training goes."

Rousimar Palhares Doesn't Want To Hurt Opponents, He Wants To Finish Them Quickly
(mmamania.com)
And he makes that clear in response to criticism he's faced since his win over Tomasz Drwal at UFC 111. “Murilo always told me to wait until the referee stops the fight. He had problems with [fake taps] in the past and Anderson almost had the same problem in his last fight. Its not that I want to hurt anyone but I am trying to be fast with my submissions so the referee needs to be fast as well, to stop the fight. My opinion is that the referee in my last fight was too far away and took too long to stop the fight. If he had been closer then he could have stopped it right away and then we would not even be having this conversation at all!”

Jim Miller Would Fight Teammate Frankie Edgar
(mmaweekly.com)
The subject of teammate vs. teammate, or training partners fighting in MMA has become one of the hottest topics of the day. With more and more fighters flocking to major camps all over the world, there are bound to be numerous situations where friends and teammates are forced to answer the question if they would fight each other. The battle lines have been drawn with several fighters stating they would never, ever fight a teammate, while others have put it off until they are forced to answer the question when a fight is offered. One person who has an interesting perspective on the subject is UFC lightweight Jim Miller, who fights Gleison Tibau at UFC Fight Night 22 on Sept. 15, and could be drawing closer and closer to a title shot with a win. Right now, if Miller were to get a title shot he would face off against friend and training partner Frankie Edgar, who currently holds the UFC lightweight title.

(mixedmartialarts.com)
Nate Diaz has been flawless in his two showings since moving up in weight class from the lightweight division, finishing reputable welterweights Rory Markham and Marcus Davis. “Whatever they want to do with me, I’m fine.” said Diaz. “I’d like to get someone in the top three contenders at either lightweight or welterweight rather than against some tough guy that’s not as popular or not as high in the rankings,” said Diaz.

HARDY: "There's too much wrestling in the UFC..."
(mixedmartialarts.com)
"Rather than saying 'oh, these guys can't wrestle', I think the problem is there's beginning to be too much wrestling in UFC Octagon, not too little of it in the gym. There are a lot of people out there calling themselves 'UFC fighters' who are nothing of the kind. In the UFC, you should go for finishes. You should work for 15 minutes to knock your opponent out, submit him, or improve your position to give yourself the best chance of doing either. But there's guys out there who just want to use wrestling to hold a stalemate for 15 minutes, without ever risking going for ground and pounds or attempting submissions..."

Chuck Liddell To Decide Fight Future Sometime This Month
(mmamania.com)
So he says...and it seems he's still undecided. "It's about how I feel and if I want to go back and make a run at a title and how far away that would be. And whatever I think is left in the tank. I've been doing PR stuff for the last couple months, and I'll finally be home for the month. I'll probably decide sometime in September, when I have time to relax.... I don't feel like there's anything left to prove. I still love fighting, but there's a lot that goes into it. Maybe it might be time. I'm just not sure yet. You know, I've enjoyed the ride. No matter what, I've had a good time. I never expected it, but I've gotten paid a lot to do what I love. There are no complaints."

Chael Sonnen: 'Nothing in my career has changed ... I'm the best fighter'
(mmamania.com)
"There’s absolutely going to be a sequel. Part two is tentatively scheduled for New Year’s weekend, it may take place Super Bowl weekend. Either way, it will be in Vegas. Last time I defeated the myth, this time I’m gonna defeat the man.... The only thing [that's going to be] different is that I’m leaving there with the belt. That’s it. We were one minute away from pulling it off. Look, if I had beat him, I would have had to come back and beat him again anyways. So nothing in my career has changed. I was the best fighter before the fight, I’m the best fighter after it.... We're not here to get along. I’m not here to be number two. It’s number one or let's move on, and I think that’s the way it’s supposed to be."

Frank Mir: 'I can beat Cro Cop in more ways than he can beat me'
(mmamania.com)
"I think Crocop is still the same individual we saw in PRIDE. I think a lot of guys have seen enough tape on him to know that if you walk away from him or stand there in front of him you could be in for a dangerous night because he still has the same leg he always had. He has a lot of speed and quickness … Mirko is very good on his feet; I’m not bad on my feet, either. Add in the wrestling that I have been working on, the jiu-jitsu aspect, he has many more things to worry about. Once that cage door shuts every advantage is mine.... I don’t see anywhere I don’t feel comfortable with Cro Cop – I can beat him in more ways than he can beat me."
