Machida still feels he won UFC 104 bout, thinks rematch with "Shogun" will be more exciting
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida's first meeting with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 104 re-ignited a long running debate on judging and scoring in MMA. The 31-year-old Machida hopes their rematch on May 8 isn't grist for that mill. "We're both a lot more familiar with each other than we were the first time we met," Machida said through his manager Ed Soares' translation during a conference call promoting his UFC 113 headlining rematch with Rua. "So I think it just makes all that much greater for a better fight this time around." Full Article

Anderson "The Nuisance" Silva Ruined Christmas For Rampage Fans
(mmamania.com)
So says Chael Sonnen in comments he made backstage at WEC 48. "He’s a grown man with earrings. He’s a grown man with saggy pants, pink t-shirts and crooked hats. Go join a gang, don’t get in the UFC. People don’t care about him. He came out and said he’s gonna go heavyweight, no one cared. So he comes out and says well ‘I’m gonna go light heavyweight,’ no one cared. ‘Well I’m gonna retire.’ Good! Beat it, this is back page news, no one cares about you anyway. ‘Well I’m not gonna retire I’m gonna stick around.’ Or do that. Again, it doesn’t really matter, you’re a nuisance. So who cares, they go make the little action figures and the two little kids that bought em, are probably pretty upset, their parents probably thought it was Quinton Jackson when they bought it for them and the kids had a disappointing Christmas I would imagine. That's a big difference. I became the number one contender on February and February 7 he sent out a press release as to why he shouldn't have to fight me. On August 7 he will fight me. I stand here of my own free will. He stands here because Uncle Dana is making him."

(mmajunkie.com)
While WEC 48's official attendance and gate revenue figures fell short of the promotion's initial estimates, the event was still an unqualified success.

The event produced a total of $792,640 in gate receipts, an average cost of $63.13 per ticket issued. Full Article

WEC officials still mum on pay-per-view future, plan five more 2010 cards on Versus
(mmajunkie.com)
The WEC took a major risk with this past weekend's "WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber" event. Company officials obviously had the unenviable challenge of trying to determine the best way to do the unthinkable: convince consumers to pay for a product they were used to receiving for free. Initial estimates from various media outlets have suggested WEC 48 did between 150,000-200,000 buys, though WEC officials have declined to comment on the subject. Nevertheless, it's back to Versus in June for the first of five more 2010 fight cards, and UFC/WEC president Dana White said it will be business as usual. Full Article

Paul Daley Not Interested In Rematch With "Boring" Jake Shields
(mmamania.com)
There's been a lot of talk about Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields coming to the UFC when his current contract expires -- but don't add Paul Daley to the list of people who are excited over the possibility of him competing inside the Octagon. Perhaps that's because "Semtex" was submitted by the grappling whiz back at Elite XC: "Heat" in October 2008. The British striker tells The Daily Record he's a much improved fighter since they last met but has no interest in avenging that loss simply because he doesn't want to subject himself to a boring fight.

UFC 113's Matt Mitrione says forget what you think you know about him, "Kimbo Slice"
(mmajunkie.com)
Matt Mitrione (1-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) knows a thing or two about being pigeonholed, and he's not about to do that to UFC 113 opponent and fellow "The Ultimate Fighter 10" veteran Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson (4-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC). Mitrione, a former linebacker and defensive tackle in the NFL, got a reputation on the Spike TV series as a difficult-to-work-with brooder that rubbed his teammates the wrong way. Ferguson already had a reputation as an MMA greenie made famous by the good fortune of YouTube. Six months after the program aired, both continue to grow as mixed martial artists and carve out identities in the UFC. Mitrione says he's not bothered by his image. All he's focused on is beating Slice, and do to that, he's trying to forget all that he thinks he knows about the bearded fighter.

(mmajunkie.com)
A little more than five years ago, then-UFC hopefuls Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar contested one of the most entertaining bouts in the organization's history at the first-ever The Ultimate Fighter Finale – the night the UFC first aired live on Spike TV.

Following the event, UFC president Dana White expressed his gratitude for the performance and said he wouldn't mind letting "Bad Boy" and "The Korean Zombie" do it again. Full Article

UFC's Tito Ortiz denies wrongdoing, accuses Jenna Jameson of OxyContin abuse
(mmajunkie.com)
First of all anything being posted is just speculation. Nothing is a fact yet. I'm just posting this because the news is important and it can determine a fighters life and career. Just keep that in mind when leaving comments. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz called a press conference in North Hollywood, Calif., Monday night and said an alleged domestic abuse incident with longtime girlfriend Jenna Jameson was prompted by Jameson's addiction to the prescription opiate OxyContin. "Unfortunately, Jenna relapsed this morning and suffered the consequences of that," Chip Matthews, Ortiz's personal lawyer, said at the press conference. "We're here because Tito was trying to help her." Ortiz denied harming Jameson during the incident, which allegedly took place Monday morning at the couple's home in Huntington Beach, Calif.

"I'm not sure where everything's coming from," Brown today told MMAjunkie.com. "I've talked to Jake before, and I know Mark. Everybody has issues going on but it wasn't a factor in my fight."
