BJ Penn: I do want to be the welterweight champion again
(bit.ly)
“As far as my aspirations to go back up to welterweight and fight GSP again, I am going to have to wait. I do want to be the welterweight champion again, I want to fight GSP again and I am always interested in moving up, I have done that in the past, looked beyond what I had to do, and I won’t be looking past Frankie Edgar.”

Vitor Belfort: Anderson Silva seemed 'upset or nervous' at UFC 112 pre-fight face off
(mmamania.com)
"I don’t know what happened, he seemed upset or nervous, I don’t know. We were face to face, but we didn’t greet each other. Some people like to stare down, but when the fight is on it doesn’t matter who can hold the stare the longest. I won the heavyweight tournament and the light heavyweight championship, and I want to be called a UFC champion again. Anderson is really dangerous and has all these weapons, but I have a good chance, and I’m working on a strategy to beat him."

Share UFC Quick Quote: Tito Ortiz is 'full of ****'
(mmamania.com)
"No, it's not true at all. He's full of ****. Let me tell you what Chuck told me. He's gonna break his head open! Yeah, he's pissed." -- WEC General Manager Reed Harris kept it short and not-so-sweet when Dave Farra asked him on X107.5 Las Vegas if there was any truth to the allegations made by Tito Ortiz that Chuck Liddell is a recovering alcoholic. Ortiz claimed that Liddell was in deep trouble with the disease of alcoholism, until Dana White saved the most dominant light heavyweight champion in recent history through an intervention. No surprise here.

Lil' Nog Is A "Horrible Fight" For Forrest Griffin
(mmamania.com)
At least Forrest Griffin thinks so. "That is a horrible fight for me. I have trained with his brother a little bit, so he already has the 'inside scoop' on me, he's a southpaw, has got a good chin, and has good power. Plus he is pretty solid on the ground. The only place I would have an advantage would be wrestling... and my wrestling is not that good. So yeah, that’s a tough match up for me. I'd do it, if that’s what they wanted, but being straight up, there are other guys I'd rather fight."

"(Rogerio) wants what every other light heavyweight wants in that category and that's he wants a belt,” said Ed Soares. “Whatever fight is going to be, put him up a little bit closer towards that title shot, that's where he wants to be, that's who he wants to fight."

(mmacanada.net)
Joe Ferraro (Sportsnet.ca) - As Edmonton's Tim "The Thrashing Machine" Hague prepares to take on Brock Lesnar training partner Chris Tuchscherer at UFC 109, the Canadian heavyweight is disappointed with Lesnar's recent statements about the Canadian Health Care System.

I edited the title from mmacanada's orignal "Canadian Tim "The Thrashing Machine" Hague has some choice words for heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar "

Randy Couture knows he has an advantage over Mark Coleman when it comes to conditioning
(mmamania.com)
He doesn't throw a lot of combinations, but he's a very powerful guy. If you stand around in front of him he's gonna try and hit you with some good hooks and overhand rights. He's gonna follow those with a straight double leg. Knowing what you're looking for there and being ready for that is a big key. The more times you can stuff Mark and keep him from taking you down or make him work real hard to take you down is gonna pay dividends on the conditioning side of things even in a three round fight.

Fedor Emelianenko or Brock Lesnar: Who Is the More Powerful Brand?
(bloodyelbow.com)
Businessweek's decision to rank Fedor Emelianenko ahead of Brock Lesnar in the power 100 ranking of athletes has spurred a lot of discussion. On its face, it's absurd. Both men compete in American promotions, and Brock Lesnar is a far bigger star. He makes more money, his name drives much more media interest, and his record on PPV is second to none.

Junior Dos Santos Is Drinking Milk And Kicking @$$
(mmamania.com)
Remember kids, milk really does a body good. Ed Soares makes sure to point that out when talking about his fast-rising Heavyweight client, also adding they are in no hurry to get a UFC Heavyweight Title shot. "We're in no hurry for a title shot. He's only 25 years old, so he's still a growing kid. Every time I see him he seems like he's a little bigger. He's drinking his milk and just getting bigger and stronger. I think we'd like to see Rodrigo beat Cain (Velasquez) and have that title shot, but whatever the UFC decides is fine with us. They've given us some great fights, some incredible opportunities, and we're just going to take whatever they give us. We never pick our opponents, so whoever they put in front of us, we'll take with a smile on our face."

Vitor Belfort Is Going To Moonwalk Over Anderson Silva
(mmamania.com)
And evidently he doesn't plan to beat him in a dancing contest at UFC 112, only in fighting. He says he may not have the flashy style that Silva does, but his style is his. "[My punching’s] not explosive, it’s performance. What do you expect to see, Michael Jackson dancing? I am a relaxed man yes, but fighting is my job. My style is my style."

The New And Improved Chuck Liddell
(bit.ly)
If any MMA fighter's life could be compared to that of a rock star, it would be Chuck Liddell's. If you've ever been around Liddell when he's on The Strip, you know exactly who the the new King of Vegas is. However, just because you can spot Liddell on the party scene, it doesn't mean he's getting tipsy.
