White is tired of chasing Fedor
(sports.yahoo.com)
You'd think knockout victories over two former UFC heavyweight champs, would have UFC president Dana White salivating over Fedor Emelianenko. That's not the case according to White who says that he didn't even watch the Affliction 2 fight card and still hasn't seen the Fedor-Andrei Arlovski fight. Even though close to 9,000 paid to get into the Honda Center and the card did a gate of over $1.5 million, White doesn't care: "If Fedor doesn't care than neither do I. If he wants to come over and fight the best in the world then that's cool with me. At the end of the day, if Fedor wants to fight here I'm here, if he doesn't I don't care."

Penn focused on nurturing talent, not wasting it
(sports.yahoo.com)
When B.J. Penn was 20 years old, he could sit on the ground and, without using his hands, reach his foot up and scratch his head behind his ears. Now a graybeard of 30, Penn admits that stunt may be a little bit out of his reach. “I used to do a lot of things with my feet, but now that I’m getting older … ” Penn said, laughing heartily. “I’m pretty flexible. A lot more flexible than everybody else, but I’m not as flexible as I used to be.”

For UFC newcomer Nissen Osterneck, MMA trumped all
(mmajunkie.com)
By the start of the second round, Nissen Osterneck was starting to rethink his debut fight appearance. It was August 2006, and Osterneck stared down "Nasty" Nate Edwards in "Full Throttle 8." The Club Europe Ballroom crowd in Atlanta was watching the night's third fight, and it was brutal. "So tough," Osterneck told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Stephan Bonnar no stepping stone for Jon Jones at UFC 94
(mmamania.com)
“I’ve been anxious to get back in there. I’m glad it’s finally here. I’m getting kicked in [my knee], grappling with it. It’s fine. It’s holding up…. He [Jon Jones] knows this is a big shot, I know he’s gonna come ready and look to bring it. I’ll be ready for it…. I got a good game plan, I know his strengths and my strengths and how we match up and what I got to do to win. I’m gonna follow it and do my best but hopefully I can catch him with a knockout or submission early.”

George Sotiropoulos out, debuting Matt Veach in for UFC Fight Night 17
(mmajunkie.com)
A rib injury recently suffered by George Sotiropolous (9-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has opened a door for UFC newcomer Matt Veach (10-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Veach, a member of the Illinois-based HIT Squad, replaces Sotiropoulos in a UFC Fight Night 17 preliminary bout with Matt Grice (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC). A source close to Grice confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). UFC Fight Night 17 takes place Feb. 7 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla., and airs on Spike TV. As of late Wednesday, the UFC had yet to announce the fight-card change. The setback is yet another disappointment for Sotiropoulos, who last fought in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 13 in April 2008. The 31-year-old earned a TKO win over Roman Mitichyan that night, but injuries has kept "The Ultimate Fighter 6" cast member out of action since. His replacement, Veach, enters the UFC with a stellar 10-0 record with nine stoppage victories in just 18 months of professional competition. Fighting in Midwest-based shows, the former high school and collegiate wrestler hosted posted six submission victories and three knockout wins. Grice, meanwhile, will be returning to action for the first time since his October 2007 "Fight of the Night" with Jason Black at UFC 77. Grice put his MMA career on hold for the past year in order to complete training at the Oklahoma City Police Department academy. With that training behind him, the 27-year-old will now renew his commitment to the UFC.

(mmaweekly.com)
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight and light heavyweight titleholder Randy "The Natural" Couture has made a name for himself by his performances in big fights in the UFC Octagon.

"The Natural" has an uncanny ability to make accurate fight picks, including correctly predicting some of the biggest upsets in recent years. Couture gave his analysis of the UFC 94 main event, the rematch between Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn, exclusively for MMAWeekly.com.

Bonnar braces for return
(sports.yahoo.com)
The recession has negatively impacted millions of people, who have lost their jobs and their homes. Stephan Bonnar has been struggling the past few months, though his financial woes have little to do with the economic downturn. But when you’re a professional fighter who gets paid only when you compete, a serious injury is a devastating fact of life. Bonnar missed all of 2008 and will fight for the first time in 15 months on Saturday at UFC 94 when he meets Jon Jones at the MGM Grand Garden.

Karo Parisyan set to come out like a tractor against ‘Stun Gun’ and kick his ass
(mmamania.com)
“It’s very important. It’s important to beat him in a very violent way…. I’m going to come out from bell to bell and just try to crush him. I want to run through him like a tractor bro — like a tank. I have every intention to hurt him with everything I do until the fights over…. It’s time for me to get back on track, get back to training and back on the winning track. I have to start kicking everybody’s ass, doing some magic and some crazy Judo throws. I want to do stuff in the cage that you don’t see everyday…. I have to bring the old Karo back. I have to bring that aggressive style back to be a contender and become a champion.”

UFC 100 will be July 11 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas
(sports.yahoo.com)
UFC 100 will be July 11 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. MMA is still not legal in New York, let alone sanctioned. If Liddell and Silva win their upcoming fights, against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Thales Leites, respectfully, it could occur, but I doubt it. For what it’s worth, White insists he hasn’t begun to work on matchmaking for that show yet.
