After Latest Action, UFC Hopeful For "Decided Downturn" In Illegal PPV Streaming
(mmajunkie.com)
Lawyers representing the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the owner of a Web site whom they allege sells pirated UFC content. The U.S. District Court suit says Moazzam Gandu, a resident of Stafford, Va., and the alleged owner/operator of Rage-Streams.net, violated copyright laws by charging customers fees to view pirated UFC pay-per-view streams and past UFC fights. The suit asks for up to $150,000 per copyright infringement, plus legal costs, revenue earned from the website, and a halt to its operation. The suit charges Gandu with using UFC logos to promote his Web site's service and undercut channels for the promotion's authorized content. By example, it says Rage-Streams.net offers a stream of the promotion's upcoming UFC 110 pay-per-view event for $6.99, while the UFC and authorized partner Yahoo! Sports charges $44.95. It also claims the website gives its customers the ability to keep and spread pirated content after subscribing to the service. As a result, the lawsuit says, the UFC has suffered damage to its brand and bottom line. The site has been taken down but subpoenaing the IP addresses and usernames of online pirates was still "absolutely" possible.

Heath Herring clarifies recent UFC criticism, says non-fight ventures simply more lucrative
(mmajunkie.com)
“I think the whole five Ferrari comment is that at this point in my career, I’m actually making less money than when I was younger and I was 23 years old,” Herring told MMAjunkie.com. “Like I said, I’ve got these business opportunities that have arisen, and it actually makes more sense for me to try to do that financially than try to take the time out and fight. That’s the decision I’m being faced with right now.” It wasn’t an easy decision, he noted. “It’s obviously a risk that I wrestle with on a daily basis,” he said. “It’s been a very tough decision for me. But with my current contract, I feel like I’ve hit the glass ceiling, so to speak. It’s not that I don’t ever want to fight again. But I have to be intelligent with my body and my time, and (if) I can find something that pays off better, I need to go down that road. “I’ve got a lot of scars and wounds but not a lot to show for it. It’s like, ‘Do you want to keep destroying your body?’ I love fighting. But it’s like you wake up one day – and I’m almost 32 years old now – and you say, ‘What have I really done? What’s the legacy I’ve left for my child and my family, other than do you want to watch me on YouTube? You want to watch me on Spike TV?’

Anthony Perosh: 'I'm going to try and take Cro Cop down and choke him out'
(mmamania.com)
I actually said ‘no’ (to replacing Ben Rothwell) originally. I look up to Cro Cop and he’s a fellow Croatian. My parents are Croatian and I’ve actually been training the other Croatians appearing on this UFC 110 card. I then went and watched yesterday’s (Thursday) press conference and listened to the comment Dana White made about how many fighters actually turn down opportunities.

Anthony Johnson Isn't Dumb Enough To Fight John Howard With A Bum Knee
(mmamania.com)
And it's a lingering injury at that, as in 18 months. "It's my meniscus again. It's been torn for a year and a half now. I ain't dumb enough to fight this guy injured, especially after so much trash talking between me and him. He's a tough fighter and I guarantee his leg kick would have done more damage to my knee. That would be dumb to go in there and I'm smarter than that. I'm not ducking this guy. I promise you we're gonna fight no matter what. We will fight. Can I say when? No, but when my knee is fixed and 100 percent, oh hell yeah." That might not be until the later part of this year though.

In the wake of Vitor Belfort's shoulder injury, UFC President Dana White and matchmaker Joe Silva were left with a decision regarding the status of middleweight champion Anderson Silva. They could pull him off the UFC 112 card, move him up to fight a non-title light-heavyweight bout or find another contender to replace Belfort. White and Silva chose option three. During Thursday's UFC press conference, White detailed the thought-process behind choosing Demian Maia to oppose the champ. The decision essentially came down to a few names: Chael Sonnen, Maia, Michael Bisping or Wanderlei Silva.

UFC Quick Quote: Dana White ready for MMA to come (back) to the Olympics
(mmamania.com)
UFC President Dana White is all for the return of mixed martial arts to the Olympic Games, International sport's most hallowed ground. MMA existed under the Olympic banner back in Ancient Greece in the form of Pankration, a combination of boxing and wrestling but may not have the public support that it once did.

Michael Bisping has a message for whiny Yanks: Stop crying and 'get over it'

"I always hear the same comments all the time, ‘He is an arrogant so and so’, the truth is I’m not, I think I’m very humble and I’ve got a long way to go.’ I train very hard, I do my best and I’m trying to support my family. They’re always going on about how bad I was on the Ultimate Fighter, I for the life of me can’t see what I did wrong, I was just trying to help my team win. Yes there was a bit of fun and banter back and forth, but it was just a pisstake. Bloody hell, get over it."

When Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira and Wanderlei Silva steps up in the ring in the same night, you can expect the same result. After more than 10 years of career, both fought 12 times in the tame night, and the result was always the same: when Nogueira won, Silva also won.

Longtime veteran Dennis Hallman back to lightweight after nine years as welterweight
(mmajunkie.com)
Five-time UFC veteran Dennis "Superman" Hallman (41-13-2 MMA, 1-4 UFC) will return to the lightweight division for the first time in nine years and plans to fight in late spring or early summer. The 13-year mixed martial arts veteran said he made the decision after John Howard pulled off a come-from-behind victory in a welterweight contest at "The Ultimate Fighter 10" finale this past December. "I just got into phenomenal shape and I can't keep on weight," Hallman on Wednesday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I was weighing 167 pounds (before the fight) and I was literally drinking water while I was waiting to weigh-in for John Howard. The last time the two-time Matt Hughes victor fought at lightweight was September 2001 when he contended for the first UFC lightweight title against Jens Pulver.

Zuffa, LLC awarded legal victory over UFC Hall-of-Famer Ken Shamrock
(mmajunkie.com)
MMA pioneer Ken Shamrock has suffered another loss. While the UFC Hall-of-Famer has found it difficult to pick up a victory in the cage over the past few years, today "The World's Most Dangerous Man" was defeated in a court of law. According to an official UFC statement, the promotion's parent company, Zuffa, LLC, was today awarded a victory in a Las Vegas court in a contract violation claim filed in April 2008 by Shamrock. In the complaint, Shamrock alleged "Zuffa had violated certain contractual provisions of his final fight agreement," and he was "demanding several hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation he claimed was due and owing from the UFC."
