Report: Griffin Out Most Of 2009
(mmamania.com)
It now appears that the broken hand Forrest Griffin suffered against Rashad Evans at UFC 92 is worse than expected. Griffin apparently needed to have pins surgically inserted into the hand to expedite the healing process, and now it's expected he'll be out until Fall '09, well past his medical suspension that runs until June.

Denis Kang’s best day may still not be enough against Alan Belcher
(mmamania.com)
“If I could fight the guys in the UFC in a Muay Thai fight, I think I would destroy them, it wouldn’t even be close. I wouldn’t have to hold back. But you’ve got to worry about the takedowns and stuff like that…I’m getting to the point where it’s hard for anybody to take me down. I mean [Kang’s] going to have to work really hard. If he’s on his best day, his best performance, it’s still going to be hard for him to take me down at all and then if he does then I’ve got a couple of tricks up my sleeve for him. You never know, I’m might slap a triangle or something on him.”

Hendo Anticipates Technical Battle At UFC 93
(mmaweekly.com)
Eleven years into a fighting career, Dan Henderson takes improvement in bits and pieces. “It’s just a matter of who’s in front of me and what my game plan is, and that’s kind of the things I focus on for those few months,” Henderson tells MMAWeekly.com. “There’s so many things in MMA that need improving that it’s hard to get to everything at once, so I think it’s good to take one fight by one fight and improve on certain skills.” His impending battle with Rich Franklin at UFC 93 has been a fan dream ever since the two were champions in rival organizations. No title is at stake, however, and both fighters have options at middleweight or light heavyweight. It’s just another tough fight on a road the 38-year-old former Olympian sees himself walking for another two years, give or take.

UFC Quick Quote: Michael Bisping would prefer to fight Dan Henderson
(mmamania.com)
“For me personally I’d prefer Dan Henderson to win. Number one because it would be great to fight such a true legend. And number two, simply because Franklin is a southpaw, and southpaws are a bit of a pain in the backside. Chris Leben, my last opponent, was a southpaw and it changes everything — you have to change your footwork, it mixes everything up. When you’re not used to the fighter it makes it quite difficult. It didn’t really bother me last time for the fight, it was the training that was a pain in the arse. It adds an a extra hassle, an extra different dimension you have to take care of.”

Thiago Alves eager for next challenge
(tatame.com)
.“It will be a tough fight and I will be there watching in the first chairs. Taking into account the fact that the fight will be disputed in 25 minutes, I believe that St. Pierre has more chances, because he is a better athlete, but, technically speaking, I believe that BJ Penn is more complete because he is best on foot, is better on the floor, only in wrestling I believe that the GSP is better, but if BJ will come in great shape I think he has more chances" bet the Brazilian.

"Agreement" or not, Chris Lytle willing to adapt style to win
(mmajunkie.com)
The first bout of any mixed martial arts broadcast can easily set the tone for the remainder of the evening. While that can be a risky proposition for many combatants, it's safe to assume Saturday's "UFC 93: Franklin vs. Henderson" will be off to a quick start when Chris Lytle meets Marcus Davis. And while the two have a well-documented "gentleman's agreement" to keep the fight standing, Lytle says he'll do whatever it takes to win.
