(mmabay.co.uk)
Sources close to the aggressive Brazilian EXCLUSIVELY revealed to MMABay that he will be moving to 185 pounds after spending the last couple of years fighting bigger men and coming up short. Often in his Pride days, Wanderlei would come in under the allotted weight, as he did last weekend at UFC 92, finding the weight cutting very easy to cope with.

Rashad Evans Explains "Gesture" During Fight With Griffin
(fightline.com)
When [Griffin] got off his little flurry on me, and he gave me everything he had, I was like, 'Oh man. I've seen every trick in the book,'" Evans said. "And I knew that there was nothing he could do to really hurt me. I felt all his power, and I was like, 'Man, I've got this. I've got this now.' And I wanted to let him know that [he] can't hurt me. It's going to be a long night from here on out.' It was just a little fun.

"Horn won't be scared like Henderson", says Palhares
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Rousimar Palhares (8-2) says Dan Henderson was ‘scared' to fight him on the ground when they met earlier this year. Henderson won by decision but Palhares' coach Murilo Bustamante criticised him for employing an "ugly strategy". Palhares faces Jeremy Horn at UFC 93 next month and told Fighters Only earlier that as Horn "has a better game on the ground, it should be a different fight."

He needs to have the injury cleared by an orthopedic physician before returning to action otherwise he will be on the shelf until June 27, 2009. Griffin is suspended at the very least until February 12 and he’s forbidden to have contact until January 28

Cro Cop Back to the UFC If He Beats Choi on NYE?
(cagepotato.com)
Our buddy Robert at FreeFightVideos has a report that suggests a return to the UFC for Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic might be as simple as a win over Hong Man Choi on New Year’s Eve. Cro Cop has apparently been dropping hints lately that the fight at K-1 Dynamite will “end one chapter and start another” in his career, and insists he’s not retiring. But Cro Cop has been increasingly vague about his plans for 2009, and when Dana White appeared on the “Best Damn Sports Show,” he stated that, “if [Cro Cop] wins, he will definitely be welcomed back into the UFC."
