Dan Miragliotta Defends Stoppage of Johny Hendricks Amir Sadollah Fight at UFC 101
(bloodyelbow.com)
"When you get to see the fight in slow motion, you can see that [Amir Sadollah (1-1)] was out and then, after a couple of strikes, wakes back up and starts trying to stand back up," UFC referee Dan Miragliotta told Fighters.com Sunday night in response to the outrage here and across the MMA media after John Hendricks (6-0) TKO’d the charasmatic The Ultimate Fighter 7 champ Sadollah in 29 seconds in Hendricks’s Octagon debut at UFC 101 in Philadelphia Saturday.

Anderson Silva Does Whatever a Spider Can
(bloodyelbow.com)
If Anderson Silva's deconstruction of Forrest Griffin didn't impress you enough, FightMetric offers up some pretty impressive stats: * Silva landed 13 of 25 total strikes, for an accuracy percentage of 52%. Silva has still never had a fight in which he landed less than half his attempted strikes.

Fickle Fans and Fellow Fighters Turn on Forrest Griffin
(bloodyelbow.com)
MMA fans might be the harshest and most fickle in the sporting world. There is no better demonstration of the "what have you done for me lately mentality" than the way we have collectively turned on former favorite Forrest Griffin. For an example see the photo shop on the right which has been making the rounds in the BE comments, on the UG and the Sherdog boards

Anderson Silva's Dominance Produces a New Set of Interesting Questions
(bloodyelbow.com)
Anderson Silva wasn't lying when he stated that he's years ahead of the competition. At UFC 101 on Saturday, he showed the world exactly why he's one of the most feared strikers in the sport by dismantling former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin in 3 minutes and 23 seconds. It looked to be a walk in the park for the UFC Middleweight champion. It was fairly evident in the week leading up to this tilt that Forrest Griffin was being highly over-valued as a legitimate challenger to Silva. While a lot of fans agreed that Griffin's size could be a legitimate problem, it almost works to every challenger's disadvantage in the light heavyweight division. Speed is what kills competition in MMA, and the same case is made in boxing as well. Unfortunately, Griffin didn't have the game plan to stifle that speed.

Reports surfaced on Sunday that Griffin had suffered a jaw injury and that was the reason for his hasty exit, but MMAWeekly.com was able to confirm with representatives from Zinkin Entertainment, Griffin's management group, that he is physically fine following the Saturday night fight. Griffin suffered no broken jaw and he is physically okay, said the Zinkin representative, but emotionally he is definitely not dealing well with the loss.

(411mania.com)
Ed Herman might've picked a bad time to step out of his UFN 19 fight for a UFC 102 fight. After James Irvin went down with an injury and was forced off UFC 102, Herman stepped up to be the replacement and face Wilson Gouveia. Now Gouveia is off due to a back injury. No word on if there will be a replacement for Gouveia.

Edith fired for being hungover?
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Edith LeBelle is officially no longer a UFC Octagon girl, as fans suspected when they noticed she had been removed from the UFC site. "Something happened, but at this time, I can only confirm that Edith no longer works for the UFC," her manager told MMA FanHouse. The ‘something’ that happened has not been made public by the UFC either. In fact the UFC has made no comment on the Canadian’s departure at all. But Fighters Only has been given to understand that LaBelle landed in hot water after phoning the UFC on the morning of UFC 100 and telling them she was too ill to work the event that night. The UFC apparently disputed that and claimed she was hungover from partying in Las Vegas the night before. As a result, she was dismissed with immediate effect, which is why viewers did not see her working the Octagon at UFC 100.

Forrest Griffin Embraces Challenge of Solving Anderson Silva's Riddle
(mma.fanhouse.com)
PHILADELPHIA -- From the beginning, he's been the underdog. You want to talk about taking the hard road? In his first professional fight, Forrest Griffin didn't face a fellow rookie. He didn't even compete against a hot prospect. The first time he stepped into a cage, Griffin fought Dan "the Beast" Severn, an ex-UFC tournament champion in his 58th career fight.

UFC president Dana White dishes insults, takes aim at rival "Strike-farce"
(mmajunkie.com)
PHILADELPHIA - It appears the friendly rivalry between the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Strikeforce is no more. Although Dana White previously had been complimentary of Strikeforce and its co-founder and president, Scott Coker, the UFC president today referred to the organization as "Strike-farce" and hinted that counter-programming and public criticism – often-used weapons with former rivals such as EliteXC and Affliction – could be on the way.
