Kenny Florian has changed for Clay Guida
(mmamania.com)
My body definitely has changed. I definitely am at my biggest and at my leanest.... I feel very, very strong. I feel I'm at my quickest, and I'm in tremendous shape right now.... We've really gone back to the basics. I feel like it's been a total rebirth, a total upgrade of what I've been doing.... I believe people are going to see even more of a change in the way that I look and fight from here on out. It's going to be more of a change than what it was after the Sherk fight.... He's one of those guys who's a survivor, and he's very, very tough. I have my work cut out for me. This is a great fight for me to get back on track. He's a very well-respected opponent, he's one of the best out there and that's who I want to fight. Those are only the people I want to fight." -- Former two-time number one lightweight contender, Kenny Florian.

Dana White: Dan Henderson wasn't worth the money and brings nothing to the table
(mmamania.com)
"He's happy, but the reality is that I pushed him into signing that deal. I told people over the weekend that he'd sign within the next week. I wanted him to s**t or get off the pot. He was in this limbo forever, and he needed more motivation to make a decision. Do you think that there's any guy we can't get that I want? Other than Fedor [Emelianenko]? So far, he's been the one guy we can't get. But everyone else that we've wanted, we got. If I wanted Dan Henderson, I could've signed him. For the money he wanted, he's not worth it. He's not a big pay-per-view star, he's not a big attraction, and he's not going to sell out arenas. He wants way too much and he doesn't bring anything to the table. Here's the reality: If I wanted him, he'd be in the UFC. It's not like, 'F***, Strikeforce beat me out.' He's been a free agent for a long time. If I wanted him, I would have signed him by now."

(bloodyelbow.com)
Found this to be interesting: Jamie Vine of Hoelzer Reich has e-mailed me and asked me to clarify a few things regarding their company and the ties to neo-Nazis as has been written about previously. The company became the subject of much debate following the news that Joe Brammer would be walking out at The Ultimate Fighter Finale wearing a Hoelzer Reich shirt.

NSAC's Keith Kizer Clarifies Jon Jones DQ
(mmaweekly.com)
Jon “Bones” Jones was disqualified following three illegal elbow strikes to the face of Matt Hamill at “The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale” on Saturday night. The fight was stopped due to a deep laceration to the bridge of Hamill’s nose. There was confusion among spectators and the broadcast team after referee Steve Mazzagatti stopped the fight, wondering whether or not Jones, who dominated Hamill to that point, was the winner. Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer fielded questions from the media during the post-fight press conference. He explained why the bout was ruled a disqualification and not a no contest, and confirmed there will be no disciplinary action taken against Jones. “At the end of the day, you had the illegal elbows that cut him up and had to be stopped. The only call you can make in that situation is disqualification,” Kizer told the media. “It was the referee stopping the fight due to the damage to Matt Hamill, to his face. “It was completely the referee’s call.”

From Backyard to Spotlight, Kimbo Evolving
(mmaweekly.com)
Plucked out of backyard brawls on YouTube and thrown into mixed martial arts main events on CBS, it’s no surprise that the weight of expectation clouds reasonable expectations for Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. Couple his initial foray into MMA on CBS with his success as a ratings bonanza on the recent season of The Ultimate Fighter and Kimbo is really in a no-win situation. He’ll never be able to live up to the expectations of an attention deficit society. Kimbo made his Octagon debut at The Ultimate Fighter finale on Saturday night, the first step in his journey towards credibility. It’s a journey that he knows is going to be a long road to travel, but he seems to put it in a reasonable perspective, even if others don’t.

Matt Hamill suffered dislocated shoulder at TUF 10 Finale
(mmajunkie.com)
Matt Hamill suffered a dislocated left shoulder during his disqualification win over Jon Jones at The Ultimate Finale 10, which took place this past Saturday, Dec. 5, in Las Vegas. Hamill, fighting in the night's co-main event on Spike TV, was injured during a Jones throw early in the bout, and it was downhill from there for the three-time NCAA Division III national wrestling champion. Hamill and his team are en route from Las Vegas to Utica, N.Y., and it is expected "The Hammer" will be issued a medical suspension of some kind. Hamill's trainer, Duff Holmes, confirmed the injury with MMAjunkie.com in an e-mail and added that Hamill will undergo an MRI to check for any soft tissue damage. "He showed so much heart hanging in there with only one arm," Holmes said. "He's a true warrior, and I've never been more proud of him. It was the first time in 11 pro fights that he's ever been taken down. I was happy with his performance until that point, and he showed his continued growth as a well-rounded fighter.

A middleweight bout between C.B. Dollaway (9-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and long-idle Goran Reljic (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) apparently will take place at UFC 110 in February. The fight was reported as signed by **********.com, though MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) could not immediately reach the fighters' camps for confirmation. UFC 110 takes place Feb. 22 (with a live pay-per-view broadcast in the U.S. on Feb. 21) at Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia. The bout marks Reljic's return from what will be a 21-month layoff. The Croatian ground specialist, who previously fought at light heavyweight, made his UFC debut at UFC 84 and scored a second-round TKO of Wilson Gouveia in a "Fight of the Night" performance. Seven of his eight career wins have now come via stoppage (five via submission).

UFC Quick Quote: A 'livid' Rashad Evans ready to fight Rampage Jackson when he returns
(mmamania.com)
"My mom’s on Rampage’s side. She’s cheering for Rampage. She’s always saying, ‘Ruuh-shawd, be nice to Rampage! He’s so funny!’ I’m like, ‘Ma, who cares if he’s funny?’ It didn’t bother me at first. It was kind of funny until I saw the last two episodes and then I got mad. I found myself getting hot and livid again because I was just thinking, ‘Man. I want to fight this dude so bad.’ I think that when we get a chance to fight, we’re still going to be upset and ready to get it on. That animosity is still going to be there, because we just don’t like each other. I could see him walk into a room and I start getting ready to throw down. The hair raises on the back of my neck because I know he’s going to say something. I just want to crack him." -- Former light heavyweight champion and Ultimate Fighter 10 Coach Rashad Evans tells the Las Vegas Sun he won't have any trouble getting motivated for a fight against fellow Coach Quinton Jackson if and when the exiled star returns.
