Kimbo after Wednesday's Fight (Spoiler)
(mmaweekly.com)
"He’s had his first test on The Ultimate Fighter, so is Kimbo Slice now a mixed martial artist? The short and sweet of it is no. On Wednesday night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter, Kimbo (Kevin Ferguson) faced former International Fight League heavyweight champion Roy Nelson. It took him the better part of the first round, but Nelson eventually leg tripped Kimbo to the mat. Kimbo spent the final 30 seconds of the round crucifixed, eating short peppering punches to the top of his head. The round easily favored Nelson."

Machida punches piece of wood "500 times a day"
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida debuted for the UFC in 2007 and has not lost a single round since then. The Karate master says the punch is the hardest weapon of his arsenal - he trains it exhaustively for four to five hundred times a day. “My punch is my heaviest hit and the toughest one to be defended by the opponent. I study the distance, the pace of fighting, because everybody knows how to punch. When to punch is the more difficult part. I train with a piece of wood (width 10cm, length: 1.30m) for about 400, 500 hits a day at each side. I also attack the punchbag to strengthen the movement” he said to R7 Esportes.

Wanderlei: Anderson Would ‘Destroy’ Belfort
(sherdog.com)
"Wanderlei Silva has fought Vitor Belfort and trained with Anderson Silva. Should Anderson and Belfort meet in the next UFC middleweight title fight, Wanderlei has no doubt about the result. “I believe Anderson would destroy Belfort,” he said. “I think it’s a very interesting fight. Belfort has good boxing skills and is a good athlete, but everybody knows that he has a weak psychological aspect and I think he will shake when he gets in the Octagon with (Silva).” Added Wand ironically: “Let’s see if (Belfort) will put his new karate ... I mean old karate, new for him, in practice against Anderson.”' Interesting words from a legend who currently isn't happy with Anderson Silva right now/

(mmamania.com)
That's the latest salvo fired in the ongoing verbal war of words by Shane Carwin towards UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. Carwin clearly disagrees with Lesnar saying Shane hand-picked his fights and Carwin notes he wasn't fed fights that sell shows, while also taking a jab at Lesnar's math skills.

(mma.fanhouse.com)
When FanHouse spoke to David Loiseau recently about his MMA future, "The Crow" was still focused on continuing his career with the UFC despite getting cut by the organization in April.

"He's committed to doing whatever it takes to get back into a major show, and that includes submitting an application for the next TUF season," Pavia told FanHouse on Tuesday.

Can Pat Barry defeat his old training buddy?
(mmaweekly.com)
UFC heavyweight Pat Barry learned the hard way that there’s no substitute for experience. “It was very apparent that (grappling) wasn’t second nature to me,” the UFC heavyweight tells MMAWeekly.com. “In a (stand-up) fight, if I got stunned, I would naturally throw jabs on punches until I came back. I’m not a wrestler or jiu-jitsu guy so when I get stung... doing anything on the ground is not something that’s natural to me.”

(sherdog.com)
UFC heavyweight Todd Duffee is touring a number of MMA gyms in Las Vegas this week, as the 23-year-old was recently accepted into the University of Nevada-Las Vegas for its spring 2010 semester beginning in January. Duffee, who gained attention for his seven-second knockout of Tim Hague at UFC 102 on Aug. 29 in Portland, Ore., said he booked the trip “on a whim” after receiving his acceptance letter late last week. He emphasized that his relationship with American Top Team, whom he trains with in Coconut Creek, Fla., remains strong.

Dan Henderson’s team expect that he will reach an accommodation with the UFC at some point - they just don’t know when. A Team Quest source told Fighters Only today that contract negotiations between Henderson and the organisation “are ongoing”. Recent reports that the two sides differ widely on certain issues are not necessarily inaccurate, the source says, but the parties are “sure it will all get worked out eventually”.

Semtex Daley wants Hughes: "I am like a ***** hitman"
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Fresh from his rapid KO win over Martin Kampmann at UFC 103, Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley has compared himself to a ***** hitman and says he will fight anybody the UFC puts in front of him. However, if it were up to him, he would fight former welterweight champion Matt Hughes next. “I want to fight Hughes, firstly because he's a legend and second he's former welterweight champion. He has a win over the current welterweight champion, and he has all the skills to exploit my weaknesses that the media and my ‘fans’ so often talk about,” Daley told Fighters Only today.

Paulo Thiago not worrying about Alves fight
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Paulo Thiago says he is not concerned about facing Thiago Alves at UFC 107 later this year, despite the Brazilian representing his third consecutive weltweweight contender opponent since joining the UFC. A Brazilian himself, Paulo has faced Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch and now Thiago Alves in his three UFC outings, possibly the toughest welcome anyone has had to the premier league of MMA. “I believe in my will, dedication and hard training. The sun rises for everyone. We are aware of the difficulty of a fight like this, but the difficulty is the same as the wind that blows on all sides, including his,” he told leading Brazilian MMA site Brasil Combate.

Rickson not sure if Belfort is ready for Anderson title fight

Rickson Gracie believes that Vitor Belfort is not ready to face Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight title after having just one fight in the organisation since he returned to it. Belfort blitzed former middleweight champion Rich Franklin in the first round of their fight at UFC 103 but Gracie believes that fight was too short to have made Belfort comfortable in the Octagon again.

Huerta: 'Maybe God saved my arm'
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
'It is well known that UFC lightweight Roger Huerta is strongly devoted to his Christian faith, but according to him the relationship goes both ways. Huerta was recently on the receiving end of a horrifically far-gone kimura attempt at the hands of Gray Maynard, who told the referee the arm was about to break. But Huerta held on and managed to escape the hold, despite the incredible pain. "Maybe it was just the adrenaline, or maybe it was God protecting my arm," Huerta told MMA Fanhouse. "I'll tell you this much: When he did start cranking it, I said, 'If it goes, it goes.' Even if it did break, I wouldn't tap. I thought, 'I'm not tapping. I'm finishing this fight.’”

Dana White Delivers for NYC Fans, Talks 'TUF' Superfight and Respecting Kimbo
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Late Monday night, Dana White tweeted that he would be handing out free tickets to UFC 104 at a Pinkberry in midtown Manhattan. Several minutes before his expected arrival, I decided to check out the scene, fully expecting there to be 10 to 15 people hanging outside. Not so. When I arrived there were at least 50 people anxiously waiting for White, and when he showed up 30 minutes later, there were at least 100 people outside, along with two police officers. Without hesitation, White promised every single person there a free ticket to UFC 104 in Los Angeles. FanHouse then briefly spoke to White while he was enjoying his frozen yogurt about Wednesday's much-anticipated edition of The Ultimate Fighter featuring Kimbo Slice vs. Roy Nelson. The interview is below.

Liddell, St.Pierre, Evans Among Six Initial Figures Round 5 UFC Series
(round5mma.com)
Its landmark marketing partnership freshly in place, Round 5 is pleased to announce the members of the first series of collectible figurines under the UFC brand, a group of six accomplished fighters, as announced today by Barron Lau, Round 5 CEO and co-founder and Damon Lau, president and co-founder. Figurines for stars Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, George “Rush” St. Pierre, “Suga” Rashad Evans, Kenny “KenFlo” Florian, Clay “The Carpenter” Guida and Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida are scheduled to be available at retail and at www.Round5MMA.com early next year. The six collectibles will be presented in a new UFC-themed packaging that includes action photos of each respective fighter’s memorable moments as well as a short biography. “These six athletes provide a strong, varied base for our first UFC series,” said Damon Lau. “There are established champions like Chuck Liddell and George St. Pierre, popular up-and comers like Rashad Evans and Kenny Florian and guys like Clay Guida and Lyoto Machida who have loyal, growing followings.” “We think fans will really connect to these collectibles through their detail and the enhanced packaging,” said Barron Lau. “We want them to feel that by owning a Round 5 figurine, they, in a sense, own a piece of that fighter.” The issuance of UFC Series 1 signals the discontinuation of the previous Round 5 Series. The remaining inventory from the 17 figurines issued in the previous four Series under that brand will continue to be available while supplies last. Limited editions and other special versions of the UFC Series 1 athletes are also in the planning stages.

Dan Hardy and Mike Swick On the Same Page
(cagepotato.com)
“I like Mike, he’s a top bloke. We did a PR tour of Germany together earlier in the year and we got on very well. He’s a fun guy, good company and I really respect him for all the charity work he does with the Troops. It was funny, we kept joking that we were hanging out, playing X-Box, watching movies and stuff on this tour bus together in Germany for a week and yet would probably be fighting each other someday. That day is about five weeks away now, and I am sorry, Mike, but I’m still going to deliver one hell of a beating at UFC 105 — the kind of beating which will be very uncomfortable viewing for every other welterweight in the UFC. Mike’s been around for longer than I have in the UFC, but his best win is over Marcus Davis, like with me, but even though he got a unanimous decision I feel I beat Marcus worse than he did.”

Mike Swick Says AKA Fighters Aren't Done Calling Out Matt Hughes
(cagepotato.com)
While a concussion sustained in training cost him a chance to fight Martin Kampmann to determine the UFC’s top welterweight contender, Mike Swick didn’t have to wait long for another fight offer to come his way. The AKA product has agreed to face Dan Hardy at UFC 105 in Manchester, England on November 14, and the winner will likely get the next shot at Georges St. Pierre’s title. We called up Swick to discuss the news, and to ask him some other pressing questions, like, what’s up with AKA fighters and their fixation on calling out Matt Hughes? As usual, Swick did not disappoint.
