UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones thinks Lyoto Machida is ‘very beatable’
(mmamania.com)
“I think Machida is getting a lot of hype, and I know he has lots of big wins over a lot of big fighters, and a lot of experience over me. I don’t think he’s Christ; I think he’s very beatable. They’re looking at him and his karate like he’s Bruce Lee. He’s not Bruce Lee. He’s very beatable. I honestly believe that a great Muay Thai champion will beat a great karate fighter any day; it’s been proven on lots of occasions. If Machida has (the belt) by the time I get to that level, I’ll be ready for him..."

Latest B.J. Penn video blog should squelch rumors about a possible UFC 101 withdrawal
(mmajunkie.com)
Rumors about B.J. Penn possibly pulling out of UFC 101, recently fueled by Diego Sanchez's comments that he could be ready to fight Kenny Florian at UFC 101, took a hit today with Penn's latest video blog. The short, 19-second clip simply shows Penn, who defends his lightweight title against Florian at the Aug. 8 UFC 101 event, weighing in on a scale. With six weeks left until the event, Penn is shown weighing a svelte 166.8 pounds, fewer than 12 pounds over the 155-pound limit. "I better slow down and stopping losing too much weight," Penn says in the video. "I'm actually surprised the weight is coming off so quick."

(mmajunkie.com)
Now recovered from a broken hand that forced him out of a scheduled UFC 98 fight with Andre Gusmao, UFC light heavyweight Houston Alexander is planning a late summer or early fall return to the octagon. Alexander (8-4 MMA, 2-3 UFC), who's in a must-win situation after three consecutive UFC losses, never quit training after the injury. "We spent the down time working on techniques and ran him through a six-week speed and agility program, so other than not hitting anything and not getting to fight, we never missed a beat training wise," Alexander's trainer, Mick Doyle, told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Keep an Eye on Tomasz Drwal
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Saturday night's Ultimate Fighter Finale featured five televised fights, three of which won co-Fight of the Night honors and the other two which crowned the winners of The Ultimate Fighter reality show. So there wasn't much time left over to talk about the fights that didn't make the Spike TV broadcast. But you can watch those non-televised fights on UFC.com, and after watching the undercard online I think it's worth mentioning one fighter in particular: Tomasz Drwal, who beat Mike Ciesnolevicz by first-round technical knockout.

Michael Bisping on Dan Henderson: I'll Be the First to Knock Him Out
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Michael Bisping is an underdog in his UFC 100 fight with Dan Henderson, but he's sounding increasingly confident as the fight approaches. "He's got a vicious right hand with a lot of power in it -- he's knocked out a lot of guys," Bisping said, before adding, "I think I'm going to be too quick for him. I don't think he's going to land that big shot. I don't see Dan Henderson -- no disrespect -- at 38 years of age, I think he's got to be slowing down a bit. I don't think he's going to catch me with it. ... Tune in to see the first time ever Dan Henderson gets knocked out."

How Likely Is Vitor Belfort-UFC Deal? Just Follow the Evidence
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Last week, UFC President Dana White surprised a few people by saying that he'd like to put together a matchup between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and current Affliction middleweight Vitor Belfort. The statement was surprising because White's been burned in the past announcing matchups that never happened and deals that fell through. Most recently, he did a verbal contract with Mirko Cro Cop prior to UFC 99, but the Croatian star bolted after one fight. Most famously, he had then-PRIDE fighter Wanderlei Silva enter the octagon at UFC 61 to announce a matchup with UFC superstar Chuck Liddell. But talks soon fizzled and White wasn't able to put the two together until after he bought PRIDE and acquired Silva's contract.

Quote of the Day: Joe Rogan Talks MMA Judging
(bloodyelbow.com)
TM: You've seen a lot of good judging and a lot of bad judging over the years, and a lot of good refereeing and bad refereeing. What's your natural reaction when you see a judging or refereeing decision you disagree with? Is it pretty much what we get on the air, or do you try to temper it a little bit because you don't want to pile on? Joe Rogan: The problem with the referees when we go to a place like Nashville is we have to use local referees and a lot of these guys just aren't prepared for the big show. They're not good enough, and they're nervous and some are real trigger happy. They want to step in and stop the action or tell the guys what to do. They make mistakes and don't know what to do...

Fulltime firefighter, professional boxer, star mixed-martial-arts fighter, devoted family man.

On Monday's edition of MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio), the longtime fighter mentioned interest in entering the political ring once his career in the cage runs its course. "I've been talking to some people in my state about it, trying to use whatever popularity I have from my name to help me run for some sort of political office," Lytle said. Lytle, a fan favorite who's stand-and-bang style and no-nonsense interviews have earned him a home in the UFC for nearly a decade, joked about another qualification.
