Anderson Silva's UFC title contenders stuck in the middle
(mmajunkie.com)
The fallout of Anderson Silva's (24-4 MMA, 9-0 UFC) two recent dull middleweight title defenses – with the UFC feeling the need to "challenge" him with Forrest Griffin (16-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC), a former light-heavyweight champion with a reputation for exciting fights – has left a slew of viable challengers spinning their wheels. Right now there are five viable middleweight title contenders, although that number will likely be whittled to three at the end of the summer. With Silva fighting Griffin on Aug. 8, whomever emerges is likely to get a title shot in the fall or winter.

Matt Hughes would ‘love to rematch’ Thiago Alves and GSP
(mmamania.com)
If I beat Serra — and I obviously think I will — and Thiago wins I’d love to get a rematch with Thiago. I think that fight could have gone differently if my knee hadn’t gone out, so I’d love to rematch Thiago. To be honest, I didn’t like the way the last GSP fight went either, so I’d love to rematch GSP. But all I’m worrying about right now is Matt Serra. So where ever winning that fight puts me is fine, but I’ve just got Matt Serra on my mind right now.

What Would UFC Weekly Events Look Like?
(bloodyelbow.com)
When the UFC renewed its deal with Spike, they mentioned the possibility of live, weekly programming starting in 2010 or 2011. Nobody at the UFC really knows what will replace TUF, but a weekly show with live fights is the most likely answer. There are a lot of obstacles to it, but Robert Joyner says there have been discussions about it lately between the UFC and Spike TV.

Up For TUF10, Rex Richards Has Business First
(mmaweekly.com)
Could 2009 be the year of Rex Richards? It could be if he has anything to say about. The former professional football player for the National Football League's Indianapolis Colts and the Arena Football League's San Jose Sabercats has long had a keen interest in mixed martial arts. "I was watching the first UFC's when there was no gloves and no rules and I was like, 'Wow! This is what I want to do,'" he recalls. "But there wasn't really an outlet to do it successfully and make a career out of it." Richards has trained in all facets of the fight game ever since, including during his tenure as a professional football player.

UFC Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights.
(spike.com)
MMA fans can now cast their vote for the top 100 UFC fights of all time. In July Spike TV debuts a five-part series entitled " UFC's Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights" prior to UFC 100, which is the organization's historic event that takes place July 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The top 100 fights will be determined by a fan vote at http://www.spike.com/ufc-100/ They are missing a lot of fights though. From UFC 1 to 15 they only have like 3 fights, that weren't that great. Of course I rated GSP/Penn 2 my highest. :P

Dan Hardy Embraces Yanks, Trains With Roach
(mmaweekly.com)
UFC welterweight Dan Hardy considers himself an Englishman in LA. The 26 year-old Nottingham native spends most of his days with his girlfriend in the City of Angels. Only training camps take him from the city. In addition to his usual work with grappling guru Eddie Bravo, Hardy is the latest MMA fighter to find Freddie Roach's Wild Card gym. It's also around the corner from his LA apartment, which made directions easy.

Hate stuff, break stuff: Interview with Forrest Griffin
(mmamania.com)
When fans talk about the overnight success of the UFC, most of the time the first name they mention is that of Chuck Liddell. And while “The Iceman” is indeed responsible for taking pay-per-view buys into uncharted territory, it is his television counterpart that helped transform mixed martial arts into an acceptable form of mainstream entertainment. If Chuck Liddell was the manifesto, then Forrest Griffin was the revolution itself.

Those of us figuring Demian Maia was next going to fight Anderson Silva for the UFC Middleweight Title have to wait a bit longer. Maia will return to action at UFC 102, but to keep those title hopes alive he'll at least have to beat his next opponent, Nate Marquardt.

Rashad Evans will bother Lyoto Machida on May 23
(mmamania.com)
“Probably after my fight with Tito Ortiz. After that fight I really believed I could make it. That was when I thought: ‘These guys aren’t that much better than me. I can fight these guys, and I can beat these guys.’ [Lyoto is] a very strategic fighter, just as I am. It will surely be a tough fight. I think if we fight, the winner will be the one with the better strategy. Machida is a really tough and disciplined fighter. He doesn’t get emotionally shaken in his fights, for being so disciplined. When this fight happens, I’m go to make him frustrated and bothered in the octagon. It will be a tough fight, for sure.”
