Dana White: Chuck Liddell is retired
(mmajunkie.com)
MONTREAL – One of the most storied careers in mixed martial arts has come to a close. According to UFC President Dana White, longtime UFC fighter Chuck Liddell, who suffered a first-round TKO loss to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in the co-main event of Saturday's UFC 97 event, is retired from fighting. "He's a huge superstar, and we could still sell lots of tickets (with Liddell)," White said. "But I don't care about that. I care about him. I care about his health, and it's over, man. It's over."

Dana White ‘embarassed’ with UFC 97 main event
(mmamania.com)
“I can honestly tell you that I’ve never put on an event that I was embarrassed to be at until tonight. I want to publicly apologize to all the fans…. I apologize. I personally apologize for what happened tonight. You guys know, this isn’t what the UFC was built on and this isn’t the way the fights usually go. Listen, any night you can have an off-night. When a guy is that talented and can literally end a fight whenever he wants to, wow.”

Doing His Job At 185, Silva Again Has Eyes On 205
(mmaweekly.com)
On the eve of a possible record-breaking win streak against a heavy underdog, talk of Anderson Silva’s next move is already in the air. He’s a big enough middleweight to make the jump up to light heavyweight – he’ll probably walk into the Octagon tomorrow at around 200 pounds – but equally important, Georges St. Pierre is big enough to make the jump to middleweight. Flanked by two of the light heavyweight division’s biggest stars at the pre-fight press conference for UFC 97 – Chuck Liddell and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua – it was clear Silva had options, both big for the UFC. “The experience fighting at 205 was a good experience for us,” Silva said via translator Ed Soares. “It’s in our plan to fight more at 205 pounds.”

UFC Crackdown on Streaming Piracy?
(mmapayout.com)
MMAPayout.com has posted before on the UFC”s efforts to stem the tide of piracy of their PPV broadcasts. Up to this point these efforts have mainly been through going after bars and restaurants that illegally show their cards. This campaign is done mainly through the efforts of Joe Hand Promotions, who handles the bar and restaurant PPV business for the UFC. The UFC may be going a step further into these efforts, judging from information put out by BayTSP, which provides online copyright monitoring, enforcement, measurement and monetization services for the entertainment industry, software and videogame makers and the publishing industry. The company recently announced: One global sports franchise and two of the largest pay-per-view event promoters in the world have signed with BayTSP to protect and monetize broadcasts valued at more than $5 billion annually, the company announced today. The logical companies to attach to this information would be the UFC and WWE for the PPV event promoters and Manchester United Football Club for the global sports franchise. The crackdown has already been cited by some as a possible reason behind the precipitous drop in traffic at the streaming site Justin.tv.

Anderson Silva: Georges St. Pierre is a problem that will be dealt with later
(sports.yahoo.com)
He's the scariest guy in the UFC. Between his entrance song and his devastating finishing power (all eight UFC wins by KO or submission), no one else oozes that feeling that something bad is going to happen to his opponent like Anderson Silva yet the 34-year-old UFC middleweight champ doesn't do much talking and isn't very intimidating outside the cage.
