Jason Brilz Happy With UFC 96, Wants A Test
(mmaweekly.com)
After winning a fight on an Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view, some fighters would be spending their fist few days afterwards partying it up and enjoying the excesses that come with being a high-level mixed martial artist.

Rebuilt and refocused, Hermes Franca ready to return to winning ways
(mmajunkie.com)
When Hermes Franca (19-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) was forced to withdraw from the main event of February's UFN 17, the Brazilian lightweight was sorely disappointed. Compounding the frustration was learning that he would be out for several months after undergoing intense surgical procedures. But as Franca recently told TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), he has already rebuilt himself one time before -- so how hard could it be to rebuild a knee?

Kendall Grove vs Wilson Gouveia @ UFC 101 ?
(fighthype.com)
“A couple of guys they’re mentioning is they want to see me and Marquardt or Gouveia. They think Gouveia would be a good test for me. It’s just like fighting any of the other guys; show me the money. I gotta feed three mouths now instead one. I’m down to fight anybody. I talked to Joe Silva and he said no later than August, so I hope to get on the Penn-Florian card and get one more victory.

UFC Fight Night 18: Martin Kampmann preparing for war against Carlos Condit
(mmamania.com)
I think it’s going to be a war. It’s going to be a great fight. He’s a tough guy and I’m just going to get in there and try to punch him in the face, and he’s going to try to do the same to me. It should be a great fight. He’s good at a lot of things. He’s dangerous on the ground, he’s got good submissions off his back, he’s got dangerous knees and kicks. I pretty much know what I have to look out for. No matter who you fight in the UFC it’s going to be a tough fight and anything can happen. Everybody’s tough in the UFC and Carlos Condit is definitely tough. [Dropping to 170] is an easy cut. Not tough at all. I’m pretty light right now so the cut shouldn’t be any problem.

UFC 99 In Germany Will Be On US PPV
(mmaweekly.com)
The UFC's German invasion has shaped up quickly, with the bulk of the June 13 fighters confirmed in less than a month. More than half the fighters on the card are either foreign-born or based outside the US, with one fighter, Peter Sobotta, bringing in the hometown crowd as a resident of Balingen, only 272 miles, or 438 kilometers, from the 20,000 seat Lanxess Arena in Cologne. The UFC recently inked a deal with German sports network DSF to air UFC content, including live or tape-delayed events. At the festivities for UFC 96 last weekend, UFC president Dana White said the European card would come at a premium for those watching in the US. "It will be a pay per view event," White told reporters. (scroll down a bit.....)
