Dana White: UFC Heavyweight Division Best Ever, TUF Makes It Stronger
(mma.fanhouse.com)
We're less than a week away from the start of Season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, and in a commercial to promote the show, UFC President Dana White makes a strong claim: "In UFC history, I don't think our heavyweight division has ever been as exciting as it is now." The purpose of this commercial is to hype the Ultimate Fighter cast members as beefing up that already exciting heavyweight division, but I'm more interested in what White said about the division as it stands right now.

Kimbo: I come in to knock them out or get knocked out, win or lose
(mmaunltd.com)
Infamous street fighter turned mixed martial artist Kimbo Slice talked exclusively to our editor Matt Freeman earlier today regarding his time in the house and what he had hoped to achieve through appearing in the reality series. Despite public perceptions, Kimbo (real name Kevin Ferguson) is an intelligent athlete who is dedicated to doing as well as possible in the fighting arena and the challenge was his main motivation. Dana White's open invitation for Ferguson to enter the house was taken on for the calibre of opponents available, not to silence White.

Tyson Griffin plans to push Franca to the Limit
(mmaweekly.com)
"Ask any professional fighter and they’re likely to tell you that they’ve never gone into a bout 100-percent healthy. But every once in a while, when punching someone in the face, and often getting punched back, is your way of earning a living, you do have to take a step back and let your body recover. That’s exactly where UFC lightweight Tyson Griffin found himself after his last bout. He scored a unanimous decision over a tough Rafael dos Anjos on April 1, but after amassing a 6-2 record against some of the best fighters in the Octagon, his body was telling him it was time for rejuvenation."

UFC hopeful Chris Wilson fighting for survival at UFC Fight Night 19
(mmajunkie.com)
"As fans, we sometimes are immune to the personal issues that impact the lives and affect the performances of the athletes we love to watch. We expect quarterbacks to throw touchdowns and guards to sink their free throws and sluggers to hit home runs and fighters to score knockouts, and we expect them to do all of that without letting on they have problems in their personal lives that make it difficult for them to concentrate fully on their jobs. If there is anyone with excuses, it is veteran UFC welterweight Chris Wilson (14-5 MMA, 1-2 UFC), who is slated to face Mike Pyle (17-6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) on Wednesday in Oklahoma City at 'Ultimate Fight Night 19: Diaz vs. Guillard.'"

Injured Sherk Haunted By Steroid Suspension

"Sean Sherk’s 2007 steroid suspension is always just a few steps behind him. The former UFC lightweight champion was reminded of that last week when he withdrew with a shoulder injury from his bout against Gleison Tibau at UFC 104 on Oct. 24 in Los Angeles. Sherk’s injury was scrutinized, however, when it was reported that he had been scheduled to take a drug test with the California State Athletic Commission required for his re-licensure that same week."

Wes Sims: homeless to TUF House
(mixedmartialarts.com)
CP: Were you ever worried about the stigma of getting back into the UFC via the reality show? Or did you just think that whatever got you in the UFC was worth it? WES SIMS: No, people understand. Good or bad, there’s nothing that’s going to hurt Wes Sims. I’m a certified black man when I want to be. I’ve been on BET. I was on the “Iron Ring” for God’s sakes. You were? I didn’t know that. I guess I didn’t watch much of that show.
