Brad Blackburn Signs New UFC Deal, But Out Until 2010
(mmajunkie.com)
Although IFL veteran Brad Blackburn signed a new 4-fight deal with UFC yesterday, it's going to be a while before he can actually fulfill the contract. He also had what was to have been minor shoulder surgery that turned out to be a worse injury than expected and thus will be out 6 months. Blackburn is 3-0 to date in UFC.

DENNIS HALLMAN SIGNS FOR ANOTHER UFC RETURN
(mmaweekly.com)
Sometimes the fourth time is the charm. That’s what veteran welterweight Dennis “Superman” Hallman is hoping with the recent announcement of his new contact. “I just signed a four-fight deal with the UFC and it’s good to be back with MMA’s premier organization,” Hallman announced to MMAWeekly.com. “I’m prepared to come in there and perform to the best of my abilities and climb back up the ranks.” Having been four years since Hallman last appeared at a UFC event, he feels much has changed within him to make this next run more successful than previous ones. “I’m a more mature Dennis Hallman,” he stated. “I think I’m better prepared physically and mentally to compete at a high level.

Tamdan McCrory released by UFC
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
This one gets a big WTF from me. Tamdan McCrory has been let go by the UFC following a split decision defeat at the hands of John Howard at UFC 101. Apparently a representative of “The Barn Cat” was notified of the release by UFC matchmaker Joe Silva sometime Monday evening according to a recent report on the Underground News. McCrory earned a reputation as a tougher than nails, well rounded mixed martial artist during his time with the UFC where he put together a respectable record of 3-3 while compiling wins over the likes of Pete Spratt and Luke Cummo, and dropping bouts to Akihiro Gono and Dustin Hazelett.

- NOT SO FAST, ANDERSON STILL WANTS TO SWING
(mmaweekly.com)
- NOT SO FAST, ANDERSON STILL WANTS TO SWING Tuesday, August 11, 2009 - by Ken Pishna - MMAWeekly.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hot on the heels of reports that Anderson Silva had acquired a permanent taste for the 205-pound division, it appears that the most dominant middleweight champion in UFC history isn’t quite ready to relinquish his thrown at 185. A recent column by Yahoo! Sports writer Dan Wetzel stated that Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, told UFC President Dana White that his client was willing to make the move to light heavyweight permanent, even if it meant dropping his middleweight belt in the process. Not so Soares told MMAWeekly.com, saying he’s not sure where that information was drawn from. I actually agree with what he says at the end of the article about pairing up henderson with the maia/marquardt winner and producing a clear #1 contender...with so few fights left on his contract and the desire to retire and fight Roy Jones Jr...it would be way better for the fans if he fought again at lhw or even Wanderlai at a catchweight...and then after the dust settles he can fight the number one contender at mw

Marcus Aurelio, who was cut after 2 losses in a row left him at 2-3 in UFC, will return to the promotion as the replacement. Aurelio has gone 2-0 since leaving UFC.

Dana White still uncertain whether Chuck Liddell's retirement is permanent
(mmajunkie.com)
Is Chuck Liddell really retired? It seems the man who first announced the former champion's career conclusion isn't even sure these days. After a knockout loss to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 97 in April, UFC president Dana White announced in a post-fight press conference that Liddell had entered the octagon for the final time. Now, though, he hasn't completely shut the door on hios longtime friend and former manager fighting once more. "He's a huge superstar, and we could still sell lots of tickets (with Liddell)," White said in April. "But I don't care about that. I care about him. I care about his health, and it's over, man. It's over."

(bloodyelbow.com)
"When you get to see the fight in slow motion, you can see that [Amir Sadollah (1-1)] was out and then, after a couple of strikes, wakes back up and starts trying to stand back up," UFC referee Dan Miragliotta told Fighters.com Sunday night in response to the outrage here and across the MMA media after John Hendricks (6-0) TKO’d the charasmatic The Ultimate Fighter 7 champ Sadollah in 29 seconds in Hendricks’s Octagon debut at UFC 101 in Philadelphia Saturday.

Fickle Fans and Fellow Fighters Turn on Forrest Griffin
(bloodyelbow.com)
MMA fans might be the harshest and most fickle in the sporting world. There is no better demonstration of the "what have you done for me lately mentality" than the way we have collectively turned on former favorite Forrest Griffin. For an example see the photo shop on the right which has been making the rounds in the BE comments, on the UG and the Sherdog boards

Anderson Silva's Dominance Produces a New Set of Interesting Questions
(bloodyelbow.com)
Anderson Silva wasn't lying when he stated that he's years ahead of the competition. At UFC 101 on Saturday, he showed the world exactly why he's one of the most feared strikers in the sport by dismantling former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin in 3 minutes and 23 seconds. It looked to be a walk in the park for the UFC Middleweight champion. It was fairly evident in the week leading up to this tilt that Forrest Griffin was being highly over-valued as a legitimate challenger to Silva. While a lot of fans agreed that Griffin's size could be a legitimate problem, it almost works to every challenger's disadvantage in the light heavyweight division. Speed is what kills competition in MMA, and the same case is made in boxing as well. Unfortunately, Griffin didn't have the game plan to stifle that speed.
