Daley unconcerned with next opponent, but White says it could be Swick
(mmajunkie.com)
The 26-year-old "Semtex" has bounced around from organization to organization in recent years, but Affliction's demise as a fight promotion led Daley to the UFC.An injury to Mike Swick led Daley to Saturday's UFC 103 main card, and his explosive hands led to a win over Martin Kampmann and some high praise from his boss."This kid put himself on the map tonight," UFC president Dana White said of Daley at the post-event press conference. "I love guys that step up on short notice because it's an opportunity. He took the opportunity and made it happen."Daley was originally scheduled to fight on the evening's preliminary card against Brian Foster. But when Swick's mishap led to an opportunity for a promotion, Daley jumped at the chance.The Brit said it's the type of move fans can continue to expect from him in the future.

Luis Cane Doesn't Really Want To Fight "Minotoro" Mogueira On 11/21
(mmamania.com)
It would seem that in addition to teammates not wanting to fight each other in UFC, friends are the same way. And that, according to his manager, is why Luis Cane isn't excited about fighting Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 106. They said to the TATAME website that they asked Joe Silva to put Cane against any American fighter instead when they were offered "Minotoro" but were told they had to fight whoever was put in front of them-that meant, like it or not, Nogueira.

No UFC In Columbus, Ohio Next Year
(mmajunkie.com)
Back in March after a successful UFC event there, Dana White vowed UFC would return to Columbus, Ohio for a UFC event every year. Apparently "every year" won't include 2010-Dana confirmed Thursday that UFC won't return next year. The main reason seems to be expansion and desire to visit new cities. UFC has run 3 Columbus events over the last 3 years.

(mmaweekly.com)
Martin "The Hitman" Kampmann was originally scheduled to face Mike "Quick" Swick at UFC 103 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. An injury forced Swick out of the bout and hard hitting British fighter Paul Daley stepped in to replace the American Kickboxing Academy fighter. "I was preparing for Swick. I was looking forward to fighting Swick, but now Paul Daley steps up. He was supposed to fight too on the same night. I was happy they could switch it up and get me an opponent to fight."

"Collateral damage" from Jackson's "A-Team" role includes lack of counter-programming options
(mmajunkie.com)
DALLAS – UFC light heavyweight superstar Quinton "Rampage" Jackson's decision to forego a December bout with Rashad Evans has resulted in a series of headaches for UFC brass. Rescheduling main events and shuffling fight locations may seem troubling enough, but today White admitted he was forced to scrap plans for a potential third event in November based on Jackson's decision to take a role as B.A. Baracus in a feature film version of "The A-Team." "Thanks to [expletive] B.A. Baracus, I couldn't [expletive] pull it off," White said. "B.A. [expletive] me. The collateral damage that was done by him doing this thing was unbelievable."

Dana White confirms Anderson Silva to undergo elbow surgery, rules out heavyweight bout
(mmajunkie.com)
DALLAS – While UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has insisted he's currently ready to fight on a moment's notice, UFC president Dana White told a different story at today's UFC 103 pre-fight press conference. White said "The Spider" is set to have bone spurs removed from his elbow, and while the procedure is routine, Silva will still need time to recover. "Contrary to whatever the hell [Silva] is saying, he's not 200 percent healthy," White said. "He's having some bone spurs removed from his elbow, which is a simple little procedure that happens, but you've got to have recovery time."

UFC 103 Preview: Tyson Griffin Braces for Potential War With Hermes Franca
(bloodyelbow.com)
Don't tell Tyson Griffin's teammates at Xtreme Couture gym that he'll be fighting on the same card as them, they'll likely cringe at the thought. After all, Griffin has managed to five Fight of the Night honors in eight performances in the UFC while also picking up a Submission of the Night honor in his UFC debut at UFC 63. As Thomas Gerbasi states in his sitdown with Griffin heading into UFC 103, teammate Martin Kampmann was a little upset that Griffin would once again share a card with him much like the UFN 18 card in which Kampmann won a hard fought victory over former WEC champion Carlos Condit, but Griffin won Fight of the Night honors instead.

RICH FRANKLIN: Stuck in the Middle
(mmaweekly.com)
Former UFC middleweight titleholder Rich "Ace" Franklin headlines UFC 103 against former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort. The two will complete at a catch weight of 195 pounds; for Franklin it will be back-to-back fights at what I've coined the heavy middleweight division. What does a win at 195 do for a fighter in the middleweight or light heavyweight division? "That's a good question," Franklin told MMAWeekly.com. "I look at myself online sometimes and I see that I don't really have a good ranking at 205. I don't really have a good ranking at 185 anymore. I think a lot of people don't know where to put me in those weight classes, and I realize that these catch weight fights are kind of doing that to me.
