Maia: “Sonnen is a dangerous guy”
(tatame.com)
Without a perfect career in MMA, Demian Maia faces a tough opponent in his return to UFC. Set for the UFC 95, the Brazilian faces Chael Sonnen, the responsible for the only loss in Paulo Filho’s MMA career, last November. "He won the Paulão and that is not for everyone. Despite that Paulão wasn’t in the best conditions, he’s a tough opponent to be beaten", said Demian. Training strongly for the fight, held on February 21st in London, England, the BJJ black belt expects a studied fight against the American: “I have to be careful, he’s a dangerous guy and very strategic, he won’t fall into me, he would fight to defeat me by points”, bets Demian, keeping the style that rendered him four wins by submission.

UFC 93: Dan Henderson Q & A
(telegraph.co.uk)
GAD: You're 38. Does retirement enter your mind? DH: It's hard to know when that moment is. There's a lot of fighters going through that dilemma. Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, it must be going through their heads. There's things I want to accomplish that are attainable in this sport, and if I attain them, it would probably be a good time to retire. I want to beat Anderson Silva (the sport's No 1 pound for pounder, who Henderson lost to two years ago) and I also want to fight for the 205 lb belt. And then retire.

(suckerpunchent.com)
Schafer and Mohr tell us that Ireland and the fans there are terrific! “The buzz about the UFC is felt all over town and the Irish fans know all about us! It’s really kinda cool!” said Mohr. Nate, who is there with teammate and cornerman Bart “Bartimus” Palszewski and will be joined by Jeff “Big Frog” Curran on Thursday, tell us that they were surprised at that the fans called out their names and ask for autographs. “It really shows the growth and popularity of this sport.

Mark Coleman has strong words for Shogun at the UFC 93 press conference
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
"He is a legend in this sport and it is a pleasure to fight him again,” said Rua. But when Coleman took the stand, he rounded on the Brazilian and questioned the sincerity of his words. Shogun has “called me two-faced, said it was a lucky win [in the first fight] and now he says he respects me. I don’t know which it is,” he said. “I’ve heard he’s said I might get my leg broken. Well Shogun, if you can break it, I won’t say you were lucky, I will say ‘good job’."

Irish debutant Egan wanted no part of "The Ultimate Fighter"
(sports.yahoo.com)
He's not the first guy to pass on an opportunity to try out for the UFC's reality show but it is interesting to hear why Irishman Thomas Egan wanted no part of the UFC's highly successful reality show. It's a show that has launched dozens of fighters to new heights in their mixed martial arts career. The Ultimate Fighter 9 is pitting a team of U.S. fighters against a group from the U.K. Technically Egan isn't from the U.K. but he was considering trying out for the show and would've been welcomed with open arms by the organization who lack any sort of Irish presence on its roster.

BJ Penn's Trainer Calls Dana White a "Drama King"
(bloodyelbow.com)
UFC Primetime tried to insert what the BJ Penn camp unequivocally calls a non-issue. That is, there is a storyline being pursued that suggests Penn is taking a vacation in the middle of his training camp thereby somehow indicating Penn isn't taking the fight seriously or won't be properly prepared. Penn's head trainer, Rudy Valentino, says it's all rubbish. To wit: “Dana White was making a big deal out of nothing,” Valentino tells InsideFighting.

UFC: Mark Coleman still gunning for a shot at Brock Lesnar
(blogs.telegraph.co.uk)
He was in fine fettle. “I don’t turn down a fight. It was a huge opportunity against this big, enormous guy. I would not back down if the opportunity arises again. When I found out he was going to do MMA, I knew he would do very well just because of his physical dimensions, his power, and his speed.”
