Parisyan out of UFC 106, Future Uncertain (Parisyan Comments)
(mmaweekly.com)
Karo “The Heat” Parisyan is out of UFC 106 after failing to acquire a license in Nevada, according to Parisyan, due to not having the money to pay his fine from previously being suspended after testing positive for a three different pain killers following his UFC 94 bout with Kim Dong-hyun. “There’s a lot of problems going on. They won’t re-license me unless I (expletive) pay them,” Parisyan told MMAWeekly.com. “I had to pay the $32,000 fine in order to fight. I never paid because I never had the money. I don’t know if I’ll be able to come back.”

Dustin Hazelett won’t feel Karo Parisyan’s 'heat' when working off his back at UFC 106
(mmamania.com)
"I’m doing what I can to prepare for him, but it’s hard to prepare for somebody like Karo because there are very few people in the world that are as good at Judo without the gi on as he is. So it’s really hard to find somebody to prepare for that, but, you know, I’m going into this fight kind of with the same mentality that I went into the Koscheck and Burkman fight with. And that is, I’m probably not going to stop every single takedown attempt, but I am comfortable off my back and I’m working a lot off my back and a lot on my striking, because it’s not a guarantee that I am going to be able to stop the takedown. So if he takes me down I’m not going to be as worried about it because I’ve prepared for that."

TUF 10 Finale: Joe Brammer plans on 'breaking down' Mark Bocek on Dec. 5
(mmamania.com)
"My goal since day one was to fight in the UFC. I knew I'd make it, and that's not where my dream/goals stop. The work has just started, as I only care about winning in the UFC and beating the toughest guys, which are in the UFC. My first opponent is Mark Bocek. He has quite the resume in grappling, and anyone can do nothing but respect that. I've been training for quite some time, have been training my butt off for this fight in San Diego, and the respect is out the window once I step into that octagon. Regardless of where the fight goes, I plan to keep punching him in the face, breaking him down, and looking for options to finish him. I'm very confident going into this fight, and I can't wait until Dec 5th."

Koscheck Sees Weighty Issues With Johnson
(mmaweekly.com)
As a collegiate wrestler, Josh Koscheck was well acquainted with the joys of weight cutting. Koscheck, a former NCAA Division I champion at 174-pounds for Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, says he used to walk around heavy and cut to 163 pounds for several meets. So the 31-year-old welterweight relates to Anthony Johnson, his opponent at UFC 106 on Saturday

Done Talking,Baroni Says He's Sick Of Losing
(mmaweekly.com)
Phil Baroni says he’s through talking. Baroni, 33, is perhaps the best talker in the game. In nine years of fighting, he’s made a career as a quote machine. Those days are over, he says. After losing almost as many fights as he’s won, including some of the biggest opportunities given to him, his sole motivation is to beat Amir Sadollah at UFC 106. That means no dancing, no trash talking... no badass.

Couture vs. Coleman slated for UFC 109
(sherdog.com)
Randy Couture and Mark Coleman have verbally agreed to a light heavyweight headlining bout at UFC 109 on Feb. 6 in Las Vegas, Sherdog.com has learned through sources close to the bout. If signed, the bout will mark the first time UFC hall of famers have met in the Octagon. Both former heavyweight champions, Couture was originally slated to face Coleman at UFC 17 in May 1998 in Mobile, Ala., before the four-time Olympic alternate hurt his ribs prepping for that year’s Greco-Roman wrestling Nationals. Instead, Coleman fought Pete Williams, a then unknown Lion’s Den protégé, and was knocked out with a head kick just past the 12-minute mark. The accomplished wrestlers’ paths did not cross again. Couture, 46, out-clinched muay Thai striker Brandon Vera to a unanimous decision last Saturday at UFC 105 in Manchester, England. Couture is the only fighter to have held titles in both the UFC’s light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2006. He is also a two-time Div. I National Championships team member and a two-time NCAA Div. I runner-up for Oklahoma State University. Coleman, 44, breathed new life into his 13-year career with a unanimous decision victory over 32-year-old “The Ultimate Fighter” finalist Stephan Bonnar at UFC 100 last July in Las Vegas. He was slated to face former 205-pound champion Tito Ortiz at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas, but withdrew with a slight torn MCL in early October. Coleman, who was inducted by the UFC in 2008, was Pride Fighting Championships’ first grand prix tournament champion in 2000 and placed seventh in freestyle wrestling at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. Coleman was an NCAA Div. I champion his senior year at Ohio State University. The legendary pair wrestled one another in a freestyle match at the 1989 Olympic Festival at Oklahoma State. Coleman won the match by one point.

UFC bans...
(bloodyelbow.com)
News is that the UFC has banned Clinch Gear (Dan Henderson's MMA Clothing line) after UFC 105. There was a good amount of Clinch Gear shown throughout the CBS Strikeforce broadcast, but most likely this is the byfactor of failed negotiations between Dan Henderson and the UFC. There is also a strong rumor that the UFC has banned RVCA after they sponsored Fedor and appeared on the CBS Strikeforce card as well, though the brand has close ties with BJ Penn, so it would definitely be an interesting scenario if the rumor is true. Update: a well-placed source within the mma apparel industry indicates that they have heard the same as well, regarding RVCA. Will keep you guys updated. This is why I hate the UFC and Dana White.

Rested St. Pierre well on way back
(ca.sports.yahoo.com)
MANCHESTER, England – Georges St. Pierre, the Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight champion, is one of the few individuals who can look you in the eye, smile, say that his goal is to become the greatest pound-for-pound fighter of all time, and not have it come across as the slightest bit arrogant. “My goal is that when I retire, I want to be considered the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the history of the sport, and to have made a difference in the sport,” St. Pierre (19-2) said. The Quebec native, who has been sidelined since suffering a torn abductor muscle midway through his July 11 win over Thiago Alves, will return early next year to face Dan Hardy, who defeated Mike Swick via decision on Saturday to earn the title shot.

The highly anticipated UFC middleweight title fight between current champ Anderson Silva and explosive challenger Vitor Belfort is now targeted for UFC 109. The UFC had originally hoped to feature the contest at UFC 108, but Silva's recovery process from elbow surgery forced a delay in the schedule.

Bout agreements have yet to be signed.
