Talk about an interesting bit of re-scheduling. With James Irvin off UFC 98 due to injury, Chael Sonnen took what was irvin's fight. Now Irvin will return at UFC 102 and will face Wilson Gouveia-who was originally to have faced Sonnen before the plans changed.

Renzo Gracie: Don’t sleep on Matt Serra
(mmamania.com)
People take Matt Serra lightly … In our sport things don’t happen by chance. Luck has nothing to do with it … He’s one of the best fighters I have ever seen in my life. He has huge heart, never quits, he can win a fight at any moment. His jiu-jitsu is unbelievable and his punching power is very strong. He’s a guy that can always surprise someone. It will be a very action-packed fight. I can’t wait to watch.

Frank Mir: ''I Would Like To Coach Brock''
(mmaweekly.com)
Frank Mir is not bothered much by Brock Lesnar’s trash talk. The UFC heavyweight champion is just a garden variety bully, he says. “It’s like when you go to school and you’re not comfortable with yourself, you tend to pick on other people to take the attention away from yourself,” the interim UFC heavyweight champion told MMAWeekly.com. Lesnar challenged the validity of Mir’s belt, and the rescheduling of their second bout from UFC 98 to UFC 100 in an interview with Inside MMA. “In my mind, is it, is Frank really hurt, or is he scared?” Lesnar told Ron Kruck.

UFC Looking at Entering the Magazine Market?
(mmapayout.com)
As MMA has seen an explosion in popularity one of the market segments that has been lifted with this tide has been the MMA magazine industry. The magazine publishing field as a whole is seeing a general weeding out of titles (once popular titles like Blender are being shuttered), MMA-specific titles like Fight! Magazine are reaching new sales heights, while other titles like Fighters Only are expanding into the US and new titles like MMA Cage are being planned and launched. With the newsstands bulging with MMA material, the 800lb gorilla may be making their move to enter the market.

Anderson Silva's UFC title contenders stuck in the middle
(mmajunkie.com)
The fallout of Anderson Silva's (24-4 MMA, 9-0 UFC) two recent dull middleweight title defenses – with the UFC feeling the need to "challenge" him with Forrest Griffin (16-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC), a former light-heavyweight champion with a reputation for exciting fights – has left a slew of viable challengers spinning their wheels. Right now there are five viable middleweight title contenders, although that number will likely be whittled to three at the end of the summer. With Silva fighting Griffin on Aug. 8, whomever emerges is likely to get a title shot in the fall or winter.

Matt Hughes would ‘love to rematch’ Thiago Alves and GSP
(mmamania.com)
If I beat Serra — and I obviously think I will — and Thiago wins I’d love to get a rematch with Thiago. I think that fight could have gone differently if my knee hadn’t gone out, so I’d love to rematch Thiago. To be honest, I didn’t like the way the last GSP fight went either, so I’d love to rematch GSP. But all I’m worrying about right now is Matt Serra. So where ever winning that fight puts me is fine, but I’ve just got Matt Serra on my mind right now.

What Would UFC Weekly Events Look Like?
(bloodyelbow.com)
When the UFC renewed its deal with Spike, they mentioned the possibility of live, weekly programming starting in 2010 or 2011. Nobody at the UFC really knows what will replace TUF, but a weekly show with live fights is the most likely answer. There are a lot of obstacles to it, but Robert Joyner says there have been discussions about it lately between the UFC and Spike TV.

Up For TUF10, Rex Richards Has Business First
(mmaweekly.com)
Could 2009 be the year of Rex Richards? It could be if he has anything to say about. The former professional football player for the National Football League's Indianapolis Colts and the Arena Football League's San Jose Sabercats has long had a keen interest in mixed martial arts. "I was watching the first UFC's when there was no gloves and no rules and I was like, 'Wow! This is what I want to do,'" he recalls. "But there wasn't really an outlet to do it successfully and make a career out of it." Richards has trained in all facets of the fight game ever since, including during his tenure as a professional football player.

UFC Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights.
(spike.com)
MMA fans can now cast their vote for the top 100 UFC fights of all time. In July Spike TV debuts a five-part series entitled " UFC's Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights" prior to UFC 100, which is the organization's historic event that takes place July 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The top 100 fights will be determined by a fan vote at http://www.spike.com/ufc-100/ They are missing a lot of fights though. From UFC 1 to 15 they only have like 3 fights, that weren't that great. Of course I rated GSP/Penn 2 my highest. :P

Injured Yushin Okami out of UFC 98 bout with Dan Miller, replacement coming
(mmajunkie.com)
The UFC 98 fight card has been bitten again by the injury bug. After already losing Josh Koscheck and James Irvin to injuries, the May 23 fight card has now lost middleweight contender Yushin Okami (23-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC), who was slated to fight fast-rising Dan Miller (11-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on the televised portion of the main card. Okami suffered a torn ligament, but UFC officials have promised "an awesome replacement challenger" who will take his place.

Dan Hardy Embraces Yanks, Trains With Roach
(mmaweekly.com)
UFC welterweight Dan Hardy considers himself an Englishman in LA. The 26 year-old Nottingham native spends most of his days with his girlfriend in the City of Angels. Only training camps take him from the city. In addition to his usual work with grappling guru Eddie Bravo, Hardy is the latest MMA fighter to find Freddie Roach's Wild Card gym. It's also around the corner from his LA apartment, which made directions easy.
