Dana White shocked by UFC 106 judging, says reform out of his hands
(mmajunkie.com)
"The fight could have gone either way," White said. "(But) 30-27? I mean that's crazy." White was referring to the official scorecard of judge Lester Griffin, who awarded Forrest all three rounds of the fight, resulting in the 30-27 total. "The 30-27 score is outrageous," White said. "It's insane." White considered the opening frame of the fight the closest of the the three rounds. Griffin landed the better shots on the feet and fended off two takedown attempts, while Ortiz scored an early takedown and landed a few blows before his opponent escaped to the feet. "It was a close first round," White said. "The first round was tough to score. As soon as that fight was over, all of us that were sitting down were like, 'That was a tough round to score.'" take on the situation (includes a video interview with Marc Ratner).

Rodrigo Nogueira Targets February, Australia
(mmaweekly.com)
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is looking forward to the day when he can enter a fight 100-percent healthy, or at least without a staph infection. Just after accepting a heavyweight challenge against youngster Cain Velasquez for UFC 108 on Jan. 2, Nogueira discovered that he had another staph infection, the fourth instance in a one-year span. “I didn’t take the antibiotic enough. The medicine given me in Brazil wasn’t good,” the former Pride and UFC champion told MMAWeekly.com on Saturday night. “Now Dana White send me (to) a different doctor here last week. I’ll be on treatment for six weeks with antibiotics.”

Koscheck Wants 10-12 Fights In 2010.....Really
(mmaweekly.com)
“(Dan Hardy’s) not gonna happen, I’m just gonna fight,” he told MMAWeekly.com. “I already told Joe Silva I’m ready to fight. Hopefully I can get 10 to 12 fights next year.” Really? “Yeah, 10 to 12,” he declared. Even with Zuffa pushing its UFC brand across the globe and constantly upping its number of events each year, 10 to 12 isn’t really realistic, but Silva and UFC boss Dana White have got to love the enthusiasm.

Josh Koscheck and Dan Hardy Build Some Heat at UFC 106
(bit.ly)
Koscheck seemed to feed off the crowd’s anger, destroying the bigger Johnson standing and outwrestling him to boot. On one memorable (yet somehow failed) takedown attempt, Koscheck drove Johnson into the cage so fast and hard that they might have ended up in California without the Octagon to stop him.

Anthony Johnson: After I hurt Koscheck, he needed some kind of excuse to recover
(mmamania.com)
"I didn't hit him in the head, I hit him in the arm. I don't know why he would act like [that], I guess he was gassing. That's the only thing I can think of, [him] trying to find some kind of excuse to complain. I know I didn't hit him in the head. I thought I timed it perfect but I didn't and that's my fault. After him poking me in the eye it made a big difference. Then he did it twice and got both eyes the second time because when he swings, he jabs with his open hand and the right didn't even hit me, it was just the open palm strike and my eyes, my eyes are burning like hell right now. After I hurt him, he needed that, he needed some kind of excuse to recover, but it's all good."

"The Ultimate Fighter 11" coaches? Tito Ortiz wants to coach opposite Forrest Griffin
(mmajunkie.com)
LAS VEGAS – With the 11th season of the UFC's reality series set to begin taping in just two months, one hopeful has already pleaded his case for a coaching slot. And he has an additional fighter in mind for the rival team.Soon after a close split-decision loss to Forrest Griffin in the main event of Saturday's UFC 106 event at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Tito Ortiz said he and Griffin should take the slots and then meet in a season-ending fight that would serve as the duo's rubber match."It'd be awesome," Ortiz said. "We'd break records with that one."Ortiz and Griffin first met in 2006. Ortiz picked up a split-decision win and delivered the "TUF 1" champion his first loss in the octagon. Three years later, with a UFC 106 headliner between heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and challenger Shane Carwin scrapped and in need of a main event, UFC officials promoted the co-headliner between Ortiz and Griffin to the top spot.

UFC 106 Aftermath: End of Night Bonuses, Griffin vs. Ortiz III + More
(cagepotato.com)
Though Josh Koscheck and Dana White have reportedly butted heads in the past, it's clear that Kos is back on DW's good side. For his second-round submission of Anthony Johnson at UFC 106 last night, Koscheck picked up both the $70,000 Submission of the Night bonus, and a $70,000 Fight of the Night bonus (which Johnson also received). As Dana White explained, "I have to publicly say that [Koscheck] always steps up, always wants to fight, fights the best in the world, and I’m blown away with his performance tonight." Still, is that enough justification to reward the chaotic mess that Koscheck vs. Johnson turned out to be?
