Fighting for respect: Mike Swick UFC Fight Night 16 interview
(mmamania.com)
Since dropping to welterweight following his first-ever loss in the UFC to Yushin Okami (22-4), Mike “Quick” Swick (12-2) has been looking for that breakthrough performance. He didn’t get it in his majority decision win over Josh Burkman (18-8) at UFC Fight Night 12. He looked significantly better, but not great, four and a half months later when he outpointed the surging Marcus Davis (15-4) at UFC 85 to earn the unanimous decision. Accordingly, Swick plans to make an even bigger statement tonight against Jonathan “The Road Warrior” Goulet (22-9) at UFC Fight Night 16: “Fight for the Troops.”

THIAGO ALVES GETS NEXT SHOT AT UFC 170 TITLE
(mmaweekly.com)
When asked if St. Pierre would face Anderson Silva if he got past Penn at UFC 94, White answered, "No. If he beats B.J. Penn, he'll fight Thiago Alves. And then, if he beats Thiago, maybe we'll start talking about (St. Pierre and Silva) meeting at a catch weight fight or GSP going right to 185 and fighting." White later clarified that Alves will get the shot, not only if St. Pierre wins, but even if it is Penn that wins the UFC 94 mega-fight. "He's next in line for a title shot. If GSP beats B.J. Penn, then (Alves) fights GSP. If B.J. Penn wins, then he fights B.J. And then he'd have to defend that title for a while before I let him move up and try to fight Anderson."

Rising Star Ronys Torres Signs With UFC
(mmaweekly.com)
People make do with the cards they have been dealt with; some rise above the rest. Ronys Torres (no relation to WEC's Miguel Torres) has endured humble beginnings to become one of the best lightweight prospects out of Brazil today. There is a lot of fighting opportunities for Torres in Brazil, but none that will garner him the high profile matches he can attain in the U.S. Ronys Torres recently signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He should debut next year.

Mike Swick seeks defining performance in third welterweight bout
(mmajunkie.com)
Mike Swick isn't satisfied. Not yet anyway. Despite a dominant performance in a unanimous-decision victory over Marcus Davis at UFC 85, Swick doesn't believe he has hit his stride as a welterweight. Never mind that he convincingly beat a fighter who had not lost in 11 consecutive fights over a nearly three-year period. It wasn't good enough for Swick.

(mmamania.com)
“My teacher Soca gave me my black belt today. It has been a long journey and I have finally arrived. I’ve been training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for over 8 years. To me, obtaining a black belt brings the art to full circle. I will continue to train just as hard as I have been and will strive to the top. Thank you to all my training partners and teachers, especially Soca for believing in me! I only hope to make you all proud next week and bring home victory! I will keep this fire in me burning.

Yoshida Ready To Surprise Koscheck
(mmaweekly.com)
For Japanese judoka Yoshiyuki Yoshida, the excitement to finally get his second fight in the Octagon is about to hit a fever pitch. He will headline the upcoming UFC Fight for the Troops card on Dec. 10 in Fayetteville, N.C. against Josh Koscheck. After Karo Parisyan was forced out of their scheduled bout at UFC 88 in September just 24 hours away from the bout, Yoshida had to face disappointment instead of a challenge, but he remained hopeful for a big fight in his future. "It was really hard. I trained very hard for that fight and of course I cut weight for that fight. So if I have a chance, I do like to ask Karo how is he doing though, but since I am not the one who pulled out of that fight, I believe I had a right to fight first (before Karo), and UFC did make a fight for me, so I really appreciate that," Yoshida told MMAWeekly.com in an exclusive interview. "This (opponent canceling the fight) also does happen a lot in an intense sport like MMA, so I am not thinking too much about it anymore. I just wait for UFC to decide my opponent and I train hard to win that fight. That's all now."
