Longtime veteran Dennis Hallman back to lightweight after nine years as welterweight
(mmajunkie.com)
Five-time UFC veteran Dennis "Superman" Hallman (41-13-2 MMA, 1-4 UFC) will return to the lightweight division for the first time in nine years and plans to fight in late spring or early summer. The 13-year mixed martial arts veteran said he made the decision after John Howard pulled off a come-from-behind victory in a welterweight contest at "The Ultimate Fighter 10" finale this past December. "I just got into phenomenal shape and I can't keep on weight," Hallman on Wednesday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I was weighing 167 pounds (before the fight) and I was literally drinking water while I was waiting to weigh-in for John Howard. The last time the two-time Matt Hughes victor fought at lightweight was September 2001 when he contended for the first UFC lightweight title against Jens Pulver.

Zuffa, LLC awarded legal victory over UFC Hall-of-Famer Ken Shamrock
(mmajunkie.com)
MMA pioneer Ken Shamrock has suffered another loss. While the UFC Hall-of-Famer has found it difficult to pick up a victory in the cage over the past few years, today "The World's Most Dangerous Man" was defeated in a court of law. According to an official UFC statement, the promotion's parent company, Zuffa, LLC, was today awarded a victory in a Las Vegas court in a contract violation claim filed in April 2008 by Shamrock. In the complaint, Shamrock alleged "Zuffa had violated certain contractual provisions of his final fight agreement," and he was "demanding several hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation he claimed was due and owing from the UFC."

Paul Daley - GSP will Lose & Koscheck will get KTFO
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Paul Daley “Semtex Ready to Explode on Koscheck”

PDG: Obviously fighters like to hype fights; here what Josh had to say in recent interview: "I plan on rearranging them teeth in his mouth. He already has those braces and those messed up teeth. So maybe we'll put some railroad spikes in there." Is this just hype or is there really bad blood between the two you? Paul Daley: Koscheck is just hyping the fight up. He isn’t the man behind those words and that is unfortunate for him because I am the man behind the words when I say that I am going to knock him the **** out.

Will UFC 110 Be the Last Hurrah for Mirko Cro Cop, Wanderlei Silva, Keith Jardine or Stephan Bonnar?
(bloodyelbow.com)
At UFC 110, four ... fighters could find themselves on the outside looking in. No longer relevent in a sport that changes and evolves like the wind, and yesterday's hero's turn into shells of their former selves almost overnight. I think UFC 110 will feature four fighters that are past the 'crossroads' in their career so to speak.

UFC Quick Quote: Stephan Bonnar ready to 'fight his a** off' on Feb. 21
(mmamania.com)
"He’s a well-rounded veteran with a lot of experience. He’s a strong guy. I’ve got some stuff planned for him. I’ve got to do certain things when the time’s right and fight smart. It’s just as important as my last fight and probably just as important as all the ones that are yet to come. It’s do-or-die."

(mmamania.com)
"I see this as a step up and I do see the difference between fighting on the undercard and the main card. I'm getting more exposure, and I can see that makes a huge difference. I haven't been fighting on main cards and obviously people are going to see you less. But I feel like I'm a complete fighter and I'm gaining momentum in the public's eye."

Akiyama Wants Silva In Japan But May Get Him In Vancouver
(mmajunkie.com)
Yoshihiro Akiyama was supposed to return to UFC this weekend and face Wanderlei Silva in Australia, but he was left out when UFC chose Michael Bisping to face Silva instead. But according to sources in his camp, he may now get Silva-or Bisping depending on what happens this weekend-at UFC 115 in Vancouver if the winner remains healthy. But if that's not the case, Akiyama's hiatus since his UFC debut in summer could get even longer. And Akiyama wants Silva in Japan, but his camp says it won't work because of UFC's TV deal in Japan.
