(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Michael Bisping is looking to go back to his roots for Saturday night’s UFC 105 fight against Dennis Kang at the Manchester Evening News Arena in Manchester, England. The early days of his career saw Bisping plough through opponents in the first round and he is looking to hit the same kind of momentum against Kang. “Mentally for this fight, I’ve got to come out there and push the pace,. My best performances in the past have been when I’ve come out and been the aggressor. So I’ve got to go back to that and back to my old self, if you will,” he told UFC.com

Dan ‘The Handler’ Hornbuckle hit international MMA headlines when he knocked out Akihirio Gono at Sengoku 9 in August. The head kick KO was so heavy that Gono had to be stretchered from the ring. Since then, Hornbuckle has gone on to beat Nick Thompson by TKO at Sengoku 10, taking his record to 19-2. He is sure he will arrive in the UFC at some point in the near future.

Swick laughs Hughes off. "It wouldn't even be a fight"
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Mike ‘Quick’ Swick has laughed off Matt Hughes’ comments that neither he nor his American Kickboxing Academy teammate Josh Koscheck are in his league. Somewhat incredulous, Swick dismissed the remark as “silly” and said if anything it would be Hughes that is out of his depth. As far as not being worthy of fighting him? That's silly to me. I don't think he beats any of us. I mean, I don't think it would even be a fight,” Swick said in an interview with Heavy.com this week.“He's a tough guy and he's a very talented fighter. The reason we wanted to fight him isn't because we're picking on him, but because he's a top-level fighter.”

Jon Fitch: "Waiting around for Thiago Alves to get better was not an option"
(mmamania.com)
“I needed to fight, I was (previously) scheduled for Nov. 21 and I’ve been training 5-6 weeks already. I don’t like a lot of down time, I like to fight often. Waiting around for Thiago (Alves) to get better was not an option. The last week has just been up and down, changing training camps from one day to the next and emotionally getting up and down for different opponents. Mike Pierce is not well know but sometimes these kinds of fights are harder than the high profile fights because people expect you to go out and smash a guy they don’t know so if you don’t, they hold it against you. This fight can very easily turn into one of my tougher fights.” Former UFC welterweight number one contender Jon Fitch shares the frustration of undergoing multiple changes in both events and opponents after Ricardo Almeida and Thiago Alves both went down with knee injuries and were forced out of action.
