DIEGO SANCHEZ DROP TO 155 NOT PERMANENT
(mmaweekly.com)
When the announcement was made that perennial Top 10 welterweight Diego Sanchez was making a move to lightweight just about every fighter at 155 pounds took immediate notice. From top contenders on down, Sanchez is gunning for the best fighters in the world at lightweight, but as he told MMAWeekly Radio recently, his run at 170 isn't finished either. Always known for his tremendous strength and cardio conditioning, Sanchez will not accept a loss in either of those categories for his move to lightweight, which may not last as long as some people may have expected. "I definitely am going to go back to welterweight. Maybe a year, year and a half at this weight, we'll see," he said in the interview. "It's all about the business and the right fights, whatever are the best fights for the UFC. I'm here to put the best fights on for the fans and the UFC, and be the best fighter out there that I can be for you guys." The New Mexico born fighter attributes the move to lightweight as something he felt necessary at this point in his career, but as he ages, he believes that 170 will be his home once again. "I'm 27 now, so I'm only in my twenties. When I come into my thirties it's going to be a lot harder to make that weight drop, so I said hey go for the belt at 155 and then later on in my career, I can go for the belt at 170," commented Sanchez.

Injury forces Shannon Gugerty off UFC 95 card
(mmajunkie.com)
With the UFC's next trip to the U.K. growing closer, an injury has forced two-time UFC veteran Shannon Gugerty (11-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) off of the "UFC 95: Sanchez vs. Stevenson" preliminary card. Gugerty was originally scheduled to face U.K. product Jeff Lawson (12-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) in a bout that may simply be scratched from the card. "[Gugerty] has a herniated disc in his neck that was giving him pain in his shoulder blade and arm," Clark said. "I think it's between his C6 and C7 discs. It's giving him pain down his arm. He's just got to recover from that."

(mmajunkie.com)
For Amir Sadollah (1-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC), his UFC dream has become a nightmare. The improbable winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 7" hasn't fought since his June 2008 professional debut against C.B. Dollaway. After pulling out of his UFC 94 bout with Nick Catone -- the second-straight fight for which Sadollah was a late scratch -- the 28-year-old admits he might have to make some changes moving forward.

Josh Koscheck doesn’t care about Paulo Thiago
(mmamania.com)
I really don’t know anything about him. To be honest with you, I don’t even know what he looks like. I’ve never seen video on him, nothing. For me, it’s a fight. I expect to go in there and fight and just do what I do, which is win. I just don’t even care to look. I don’t care to watch [him]. I don’t watch video on any of my opponents. For me it’s just another fight. I’m sure he’s a tough opponent, but he hasn’t fought in the UFC yet. This will be his first opportunity to fight somebody really tough.

Josh Koscheck Talks UFC 95, Weighs In On GSP Greasing Allegations
(cagepotato.com)
Josh Koscheck knows he’s not your favorite UFC fighter. But you know something? He doesn’t really care. The way he sees it, his job is to fight, and win, as often as possible. After a highlight reel knockout of Yoshiyuki Yoshida at the UFC’s “Fight for the Troops,” he looks to continue he winning streak at UFC 95 next Saturday against Octagon newcomer and undefeated Brazilian fighter Paulo Thiago. In our exclusive interview, Koscheck discusses his next fight, his career, and what he makes of the Georges St. Pierre greasing allegations. CagePotato.com: Thanks for talking with me Josh. What do you know about your opponent on the 21st, Paulo Thiago? I really don’t know anything about him. To be honest with you, I don’t even know what he looks like. I’ve never seen video on him, nothing. For me, it’s a fight. I expect to go in there and fight and just do what I do, which is win. Is the reason you haven’t seen any video on him because you can’t find any, or because you don’t care to look? I just don’t even care to look. I don’t care to watch it. I don’t watch video on any of my opponents. For me it’s just another fight. I fight tough guys every single day at the gym. I got a couple guys in the top ten in the weight class, like Jon Fitch and Mike Swick, plus the other guys from other weight classes at our gym. I’m just looking for another good fight. I’m sure he’s a tough opponent, but he hasn’t fought in the UFC yet. This will be his first opportunity to fight somebody really tough. Do you think it’s strange that after your big knockout of Yoshida, the UFC gives you an opponent most people have never heard of, who’s making his debut? Not really. Like I told the UFC, I’ll fight anybody at any time. I don’t care who it is, where it’s at, if the fights are three weeks apart from each other. I just want to fight as much as I can.

Brandon Wolff vs Yoshiyuki Yoshida For UFC 98
(mmamania.com)
Mixed Martial Arts Development (MMAD) coach and fighter Brandon Wolff (7-3) will return to the Octagon against Japanese import Yoshiyuki “Zenko” Yoshida at UFC 98 on May 23 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada according to MMAHawaii.com. Wolff made his UFC debut last December at UFC Fight Night 16 ‘Fight for the Troops,’ receiving a very rude welcome from Ben Saunders via gruesome Thai clinch. The “Killa-B” blasted Wolff in the clinch with a series of damaging knees that left the Hawaiian barely recognizable.

Serra Looks Forward To 2009, Hughes Fight
(mmaweekly.com)
While limited to only one fight in 2008, it could be said that last year was possibly the most important of former Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight titleholder Matt Serra’s career. After shocking the MMA world with his win over Georges St. Pierre at UFC 69 in April of 2007, he entered last year with a newfound level of respect for how he rose to the top of the welterweight division, via hard work and dedication. It was with that same admiration that fans continued to support him after losing to St. Pierre in their rematch at UFC 83, cementing his place as one of the sport’s most popular fighters.

UFC VP Marc Ratner Clarifies Corner Changes
(mmaweekly.com)
The news broke at the UFC Fight Night 17 event last Saturday that a rule change had been made in regards to corner men applying Vaseline to their fighters in between rounds, and that only cut men assigned by the promotion would be allowed to do so going forward. While the rule change for Florida was correct, UFC vice president of regulatory affairs Marc Ratner spoke to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday to clarify a few misconceptions about the rule change. "It's not the UFC, it's the commission that will decide exactly what can be done," Ratner said in an exclusive interview. "Some of that stuff will be brought up at the ABC meetings with all the commissions, but there has been no official UFC policy."

Doctor: Parisyan's Painkiller Cocktail "Unusual"
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
It is unusual for somebody to mix the three drugs found in the sample provided by Karo Parisyan this week, according to the UFC’s UK ringside physician. Dr. Chris Lam explained that the three drugs - Hydrocodone, Oxymorphone, and Hydromorphone - are all opiates, which are “probably the most powerful pain killer which are routinely used in medicine, normally being reserved for severe pain such as cancer pain”.

Rich Franklin undergoes successful eye surgery to remove scar tissue
(mmajunkie.com)
Rich Franklin, who suffered a deep eye poke during a UFC 93 main-event loss to Dan Henderson on Jan. 17, underwent successful surgery on Feb. 9 to remove scar tissue from his damaged right eye. After returning home from the Dublin, Ireland event, Franklin's ophthalmologist initially diagnosed him with a severely scratched cornea. Earlier this week, he underwent surgery to remove scar tissue that had developed in the affected area. "The ocular specialist gave Franklin numbing drops followed by several [Lidocaine] injections in the eyeball socket and eyeball itself," Franklin's business manager, J.T. Stewart, said in a statement issued to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "A scalpel was used to cut the scar tissue growth from the eyeball. "Franklin also has a scar band attaching itself to the eyelid where the eye lid meets the cheek. After another injection to reduce the swelling, the doctor cauterized the eyeball to stop the bleeding."

Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar 2 to be ’similar to the first’
(mmamania.com)
“Technically, Lesnar has the ‘real’ belt and he can claim that, I’m not bothered. But I have accomplished more than him on the road to the title…. I see the rematch being a similar fight to the first. He will look to overwhelm me quickly but it’s hard to win fights by just overpowering someone. He has the size and his strength is immense but his technical ability is nowhere near mine.”
