Ultimate Fighting's Cold War Gets Hotter (TIME Magazine Article)
(time.com)
Imagine a pro quarterback with Peyton Manning's talent, playing up north in the CFL instead of the NFL. Or picture Tiger Woods shunning the PGA and all the major championships to star in the second-string Nationwide Tour. It may sound ridiculous, but the fast-growing, wildly popular sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) is grappling with such an unthinkable, uncomfortable scenario.

Coleman has alot of respect for Bonnar
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Mark Coleman – The Hammer Talks UFC 100

PDG: What are your thoughts on your opponent; Stephan Bonnar? Mark Coleman: I respect him quite a bit and he has never been stopped in the UFC. He has fought some wars in the cage and he has a huge heart. Stephan has good reach and a good standup game that you have to respect. I have been working a lot in training on my standup and I was hoping to use that in my next couple of fights but I'm going to have to be smart with him and probably take him to the ground. Where I do what I do best – Ground and Pound. I have nothing but respect for Stephan Bonnar and his fight with Forest Griffin was an amazing fight that put the UFC on the map.

Randy Couture Doesn't Care, but Thinks Brock Lesnar Will Beat Frank Mir
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Randy Couture has a big fight ahead of him against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 102, and if he wins he might just get another crack at the UFC heavyweight title, which will be decided in the main event of UFC 100, Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar. But Couture says he doesn't much care who wins that fight. "I think both guys are amazing fighters," Couture tells our friend Steve Cofield of CageWriter.com. "I don't really care one way or the other. I'm leaning toward Lesnar. It's always harder for the guy who won the first one to make adjustments, come back and win again."

Hahn has been working with Frank Mir for years, so it's interesting to hear his comments about where Mir stands in the last few days leading up to his UFC 100 matchup with Brock Lesnar.
