Cro Cop's fighting ASAP.... In the UFC
(mirko-crocop.com)
These days the boys from Cro Cop team are training in full force. After a long break and highly demanding recovery process, Mirko Cro Cop is ready to fight in MMA again. All problems with injuries are history and Cro Cop is very optimistic to start another chapter in his career: „I feel great, the recovery process is going well and we train at high intensity now. I never had such a strong desire to prove myself and I'll climb up again, or die trying.“ Mirko's next fight is set for June 13th in Germany, which means that he's back in the UFC, a place that he didn't have his best moments: „I decided to fight in the UFC again, because of the stronger competition in the heavyweight division. My next opponent will be Mustapha Al-Turk. I didn't do well in my first three appearances - I wasn't myself. By returning to the cage I want to prove that I can still fight at highest level, no matter when or where.“, claims Cro Cop. All I have to say is I didn't even hear about this. He signed with Dream not to long ago lol.

Sean Sherk ready for Frankie Edgar in 3D
(mmamania.com)
“I think he’s pretty well-rounded. He has a great wrestling background, [and] his striking looks good. Every time I’ve seen him fight, he looks comfortable on his feet. I think he’s a purple belt in jiu-jitsu. I think he’s pretty well-versed. I don’t know how this fight is going to turn out. It could turn into a wrestling match or a boxing match. That has yet to be seen. I think you’ll see a lot of everything in this one. That’s the way it is with everybody in this industry now, especially at the high level. Everyone is three-dimensional now. You never know how it’s going to go until you get in there and start mixing it up. I think my fight with Frankie is going to be real exciting. I think — assuming I do pull the win off in two fast-paced, exciting fights — that the fans would be excited for Penn and Sherk 2.”

(mmaweekly.com)
He certainly didn’t look it, but Xavier Foupa-Pokam says the UFC jitters got him at UFC 97. “I was feeling very great in the locker-room, and just before the corridor to the path to the Octagon,” Foupa-Pokam told MMAWeekly.com. “Then, I started to feel tense and didn't fight the way I should have. I wasn't lucid; I was short of breath.”

Serra Vs Hughes Moves From Reality To Real
(mmaweekly.com)
“I’ll tell you this for sure, I’ve got one more fight left in me. Matt Serra needs to come up with a game plan now. My wife wants it. I want it. And I know these fans want it, too.” Such were the words of Matt Hughes nearly one year ago after losing to Thiago Alves at UFC 85. New week, on May 23 at UFC 98, that fight will finally happen. In reality, it's been much longer than a year in developing.

Five rounds. Twenty-five minutes. Fifteen hundred seconds. July 11, 2009, will be the meeting of destiny for Thiago Alves. The journey won't take long; that he assures you.

Across the octagon will be Alves' opponent, Georges St Pierre, a UFC welterweight champion in the prime of his career.

UFC's Pat Barry brings heavy blows
(mmajunkie.com)
Pat Barry has the kind of concussive punching and kicking power that can take him a long way in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's heavyweight division, even if his cell phone is filled with voice mails and text messages telling him he's a fool to compete with the big boys of mixed martial arts. He's 5 feet, 11¼ inches tall and weighs 230 pounds but is derided as a "midget" who would be better off fighting as a 205-pounder. Barry, who may be the most brutally honest man in MMA this side of Dana White, doesn't believe he's too small to be a factor at heavyweight.

Enter the Dragon: UFC 98 interview with Lyoto Machida
(mmamania.com)
Elusive. Methodical. Unbeaten. There are plenty of adjectives available to describe Lyoto Machida’s style inside the Octagon. One not frequently heard, however, was “aggressive.” That all changed at UFC 94.

Matt Hughes Has An Empty Bag
(mmamania.com)
Yes, even more pre-UFC 98 trash talk from Matt Serra. Speaking during an appearance on this past Monday's episode of Pro MMA Radio, Serra says the difference is he's training for the "old" Hughes and not the Hughes who's lost his last 2 fights and doesn't think Hughes "has it in the bag" like he thinks he does.

Lyoto Machida wants to test himself against Brock Lesnar
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
While Lyoto Machida is admittedly focused on his upcoming UFC light heavyweight championship match-up with Rashad Evans, and deservedly so, he recently revealed that a move up to the heavyweight division isn’t that far out of the picture. If Machida wants to eventually challenge some like Lesnar he’s going to have to get past Evans first, something he is fully aware of. “I don’t think about a fight at the heavyweight division, but I think about a challenge, maybe against the heavyweight champion,” revealed Machida in an interview with Tatame.com.

Changing styles: Frank Edgar UFC 98 interview
(mmamania.com)
It’s hard to believe, but it’s been nearly a year since we last saw Frank Edgar inside the Octagon. And if he has it his way, we’re going to see a new and improved fighter at UFC 98. We’ll call it Frankie 2.0. Tracing Edgar’s UFC career, you might not think this guy needs to change things up. He’s got a winning formula: he’s a four-time national-qualifying collegiate wrestler with great standup and a lot of flexibility (just ask Tyson Griffin).

UFC In Boston, MMA In Mass - One Step Closer
(mmaweekly.com)
The Massachusetts Senate Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security last Monday approved the state’s first stand-alone piece of MMA legislation, passing it to the Senate Clerk after a unanimous vote. The Clerk will next pass it to the Ways and Means Committee for a final review, or move it to the Senate floor for debate and a vote. Matt Moran, Chief of Staff for James E. Timilty, the bill’s co-author and Security chair, said he expected it to go to Ways and Means. The committee oversees legislation with a fiscal impact on the state and votes on whether to pass them to the Senate floor. While the original legislation passed the Ways and Means Committee last year, there was no timetable on a vote, said Moran.
