Shileds Wants UFC & GSP
(mmaweekly.com)
Top ranked welterweight Jake Shields is tired of waiting and wondering. He wants job stability, and more importantly, to establish himself as the world’s best. “I’m just sick of not knowing when I'm going to fight,” he told MMAWeekly.com. In recent months, Shields has had anything but stability. Since the financial woes of ProElite virtually closed the organization and put a lock down on communications with its fighters, Shields has been in the dark about his future.

Legendary Nogueira far from finished
(sports.yahoo.com)
If there’s a secret regarding the legendary durability of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, it might be his vivid memory. The former PRIDE heavyweight champion, who has fought some of the biggest and baddest men in the sport in 37 professional fights, has never been stopped, even though he’s spent plenty of time getting pounded and been in situations often that would have stopped virtually all competitors.

Frank Mir on the difference between beating Brock and possibly Minotauro
(mmamania.com)
“Beating Nogueira would be so significant to me, because of who he is. He’s a legend in our sport. Whether he wins or loses his next fight, he’s the Minotauro. Brock hasn’t earned that yet. Brock’s not a legend in our sport. He’s not even an icon in our sport yet. He’s an entertainer who is famous and who’s had a slight amount of success in our sport with two wins. Nogueira, I don’t have to say anything else about him. Just say his name and you get a reaction, you see the respect. Anyone who knows even a little bit about this sport knows what he’s about.”

Paul Taylor Out Of UFC 95
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Top British welterweight Paul Taylor will not be fighting at UFC 95 in London, Fighters Only has learned. According to his management, Taylor is taking longer than expected to recover from the broken ribs he sustained against Chris Lytle at UFC 89. Taylor had been rumoured to be facing The Ultimate Fighter season seven graduate Matt ‘The Immortal’ Brown. Aside from Taylor being British, the UFC was keen to have him because he is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser with three Fight of the Night awards to his name.

Frank Shamrock - New Interview!
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Frank Shamrock ‘Moving on to 2009’ Former Undefeated UFC Champion and Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Frank Shamrock talked with PDG about the Fall of EliteXC, the Rise of Strikeforce, fighting Tito Ortiz, his brother Ken, a rematch with Cung Le and More!

PDG: Really, so the fight is still scheduled for around April? Shamrock: I have arena dates booked and a pay-per-view date all set up. Ken is just being Ken though and we really haven't finalized his commitment to the fight. I have worked way too hard to make this fight happen but man it has been an uphill battle all the way. PDG: Overall, what are your lasting impressions of how the whole EliteXC-CBS Saturday Night program ended and the ultimate demise of the company? Shamrock: Sadly, I believe that the ending was almost inevitable. The way they had their business model laid out, they were not equipped to handle any bad press. You had a bunch of guys that didn't know what they were doing making the decisions for the company. As far as Kimbo Slice getting knocked out, I thought it was great MMA. That is what the whole sport is about; two fighters get in there and go at it and the situation created a great opportunity for Seth Petruzelli. That moment was pure MMA and its unfortunate that it caused the demise of the company.

UFC Signs Dutch Heavyweight Stefan Struve
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
He will make his debut at UFC 95 in London, although his opponent has not been agreed upon. “I think I can beat most of the guys there. They have five or six really good heavyweights. The other guys... not so good, I think,” Struve told us. Struve (22-2) was picked up by the promotion after submitting UFC veteran Mario ‘Sukata’ Neto several weeks ago. And in July, he stopped another UFC veteran – Colin Robinson – with a triangle after a one-sided first round.
