Thiago Alves Vs Mike Swick @ UFC 95/96
(videos.mmaweekly.com)
"Swick’s got Thiago Alves now coming up in February, so he’s got to get by him. If he does not get by him maybe that’s something the UFC will do is be like ‘Okay let’s have Marcus fight Swick.’ And then, you know, at some point I’d like to go fight with Thiago again."

Eric Schafer: “I belong in the UFC”
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
“Ravishing” Red Schafer could have gone with a really gnarly nickname like “Bonecrusher” or “The Strangler but the 31 year old Milwaukee fighter told FiveOuncesOfPain.com in an exclusive interview that “no one is ever going to be afraid of you because of your nickname so you might as well have some fun with it”. The self chosen nickname lets you know that Schafer has never been one to take the small stuff too seriously but don’t let the easy going demeanor fool you. Schafer is one of the most dangerous submission fighters competing in the UFC’s talent rich light heavyweight division, if not the most dangerous.

Nevada Expresses Concern Over 'TUF' Behaviour
(mmaweekly.com)
At a meeting in December for which an official summary was released yesterday, Nevada State Athletic Commission officials expressed concerns to UFC officials about some of the behavior that was exhibited during the controversial eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter. For each season of The Ultimate Fighter, dating back to the first season's filming in late 2004, Zuffa has requested and been granted a waiver of the NSAC's regulations relating to the results of NSAC-sanctioned fights being posted publicly. This allows the results of the fights on The Ultimate Fighter to remain secret until the fights air on Spike TV months later. These waivers must be requested and granted for each individual season of TUF. Prior to granting the usual waivers to Zuffa for the upcoming ninth season, which recently started filming and is tentatively scheduled to begin airing on April 1, the NSAC wanted to talk to Zuffa about some of the behavior in the eighth season.

Maia: “Sonnen is a dangerous guy”
(tatame.com)
Without a perfect career in MMA, Demian Maia faces a tough opponent in his return to UFC. Set for the UFC 95, the Brazilian faces Chael Sonnen, the responsible for the only loss in Paulo Filho’s MMA career, last November. "He won the Paulão and that is not for everyone. Despite that Paulão wasn’t in the best conditions, he’s a tough opponent to be beaten", said Demian. Training strongly for the fight, held on February 21st in London, England, the BJJ black belt expects a studied fight against the American: “I have to be careful, he’s a dangerous guy and very strategic, he won’t fall into me, he would fight to defeat me by points”, bets Demian, keeping the style that rendered him four wins by submission.

UFC 93: Dan Henderson Q & A
(telegraph.co.uk)
GAD: You're 38. Does retirement enter your mind? DH: It's hard to know when that moment is. There's a lot of fighters going through that dilemma. Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, it must be going through their heads. There's things I want to accomplish that are attainable in this sport, and if I attain them, it would probably be a good time to retire. I want to beat Anderson Silva (the sport's No 1 pound for pounder, who Henderson lost to two years ago) and I also want to fight for the 205 lb belt. And then retire.

Mark Coleman has strong words for Shogun at the UFC 93 press conference

"He is a legend in this sport and it is a pleasure to fight him again,” said Rua. But when Coleman took the stand, he rounded on the Brazilian and questioned the sincerity of his words. Shogun has “called me two-faced, said it was a lucky win [in the first fight] and now he says he respects me. I don’t know which it is,” he said. “I’ve heard he’s said I might get my leg broken. Well Shogun, if you can break it, I won’t say you were lucky, I will say ‘good job’."
