UFC Continues Anti-Piracy Battle, Subpoenas Justin.tv & Ustream.tv
(mmajunkie.com)
The world's largest pay-per-view content provider shows no signs of slowing its anti-piracy efforts. Ultimate Fighting Championship officials today announced they have subpoenaed Justin.tv and Ustream.tv – two sites with user-provided live video content – due to their broadcasts of illegally uploaded content, including the UFC's pay-per-view events. Zuffa LLC, the UFC's parent company, has served both sites subpoenas that demand they reveal the identities of users who uploaded UFC content. Today's release specifically points to one user from a single IP address who uploaded this year's UFC 108 and UFC 110 events, which drew 36,000 and 78,000 non-paying viewers, respectively. "I can't wait to go after the thieves that are stealing our content," UFC President Dana White stated. "This is a fight we will not lose." Today's release cites a section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that allows copyright owners to obtain subpoenas from a federal court that orders a service provider to disclose the identity of subscribers who allegedly engage in infringing activities. Due to the UFC's hefty PPV price tags, the promotion's content is a frequent target of privacy.

Thiago Tavares officially is now off next month's UFC on Versus 2 fight card. He was originally scheduled to face newcomer Willamy Friere (Chequerim) but Friere had to pull off due to injury, and UFC can't find a replacement so Tavares is now off as well. He'll be moved to a future card. This leaves 10 fights for the 8/1 event.

MM-Nay: Vancouver Bids MMA Sanctioning "Adieu"
(mmamania.com)
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Councillors in the city of North Vancouver voted to disband the North Vancouver Athletic Commission on Monday after former chairman Mirko Mladenovic was impeached and replaced by city bureaucrat Dave Rudberg. UFC recently opened a corporate office in Canada with the intention of spreading the gospel to unregulated areas like Toronto. And while fan support is at an all-time high, especially with Canadian stars like Georges St. Pierre going mainstream, politicians are not impressed.

Jorge Rivera Off UFC 118
(mmajunkie.com)
A broken arm has forced Jorge Rivera out of his UFC 118 bout with fellow middleweight Alessio Sakara. Rivera first announced the news via his Facebook page, though UFC officials have not removed the bout from the official fight card. With ample time, UFC officials likely will search for a replacement, though without Rivera (a cast member on "The Ultimate Fighter 4"), the bout potentially could lose its spot on Spike TV's "UFC Prelims" broadcast. Rivera hopes to return in September or October. UPDATE: The replacement is Gerald Harris.

It could be the biggest fight in UFC history. It could break all the records. And according to UFC president Dana White, everyone keeps asking for it, so he might just have to give it to them.

There's no pro boxer in Couture's camp to mimic Toney
(sports.yahoo.com)
"I have no intention and no illusion that I'm a world class boxer," said Couture. "I'm a mixed martial artist. I've won the majority of my fights by taking guys down, putting them on their back and punching the until they don't want to be punched anymore. That's not going to change." Couture has made interesting choice of training partners to try and replicate what Toney brings to the table. Couture didn't bring in any high level boxers and is working with his usual cast of characters.

Matyushenko: My Job Is To Stop Jon Jones From Getting To The Top
(mmamania.com)
The world's most dangerous "Janitor," Vladimir Matyushenko, plans on mopping up the mess Jon Jones has made in the light heavyweight division when they clash at UFC on Versus 2 on Aug. 1 in San Diego. "Bones" has looked nearly invincible in his meteoric rise to the top of his weight class and a recent UFC poll found an anemic 8-percent of fans who think that Vladdy's got the chops to defeat the dynamic young up-and-comer.

Michael Bisping Already Spending His FOTN Bonus For UFC 120
(mmamania.com)
In his head, that is. The TUF 3 winner seems convinced his fight with Yoshihiro Akiyama in October will be the Fight Of The Night in front of the hometown crowd. “The British fans have always given me unbelievable support and I’ve never lost at home, so I am looking to help make this another special night for British MMA. Akiyama is a very dangerous guy. He strikes very well, he has power, and he will keep coming at you. He is very strong with his judo takedowns, and I will have to train seriously hard to come up for an answer for those. But I think that if I set a fast, hard pace in the first round, that by the third I will have taken over and will be in a position to finish him. Akiyama will obviously be looking to do the same thing – that is the way he always fights – and I am already spending my ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus in my head.“

Ross Pearson Is "A Far Better Striker Than BJ Penn"
(mmamania.com)
At least the TUF 9 winner thinks he is. “We’re all very good at doing what we like to do. BJ’s ground game and wrestling is unbelievable, but I feel I’m a far better striker than he is. I might never be as good as he is at one thing, but he might never be as good as me at another. I’m not near a BJJ black belt, but a fight is a fight and anything can happen, that’s what makes the sport so exciting.” Should be noted, however, that Pearson TKOs opponents at a lower rate than Penn in his career to date-less than 30% (3 of 14) to Penn's 40%.

Couture: If UFC Wanted Me To Fight Anderson Silva, I'd Be All Over That
(mmamania.com)
Although he's got to get through James Toney first, Randy Couture appears ready to jump onto the bandwagon that is an Anderson Silva fight. "I'm definitely interested at fighting at 205. I think Anderson would be a great fight. I'm not sure what his perspective has been the last couple of times, though. I think since the Cote fight he's taken on a different style and hasn't been as explosive, not trying to finish fights early on. I don't know if it's concerning, but it's interesting where he's coming from with that. He certainly still has that capability. Maia, Cote, he could have finished those guys if he wanted to take the risk, so I'm not sure what's going on where he doesn't want to step up and take that risk. I think he's a fantastic fighter, and if that's someone they want me to compete against I'd be all over that."
