Affliction Responds to UFC's Counter-programming
(dreamfighters.com)
I do not consider this act to be an act of counter-programming by the UFC. The UFC regularly features on Spike stories of upcoming fights (such as the St. Pierre vs Penn II fight). On the same basis, the UFC Unleashed program airs regularly at this time. Lastly, the notion that showing a rerun of the Couture vs. Lesnar fight could impact Trump’s Affliction “Day Of Reckoning” event is absurd. I say this for two (2) reasons: First, we all know the result of the fight which was considered by many fans and pundits mediocre at best. Secondly, no fan of the sport, whether a die hard fan or casual, would miss Affliction’s stacked fight card to watch this repeat.

Mike Swick Proves He's Back On Track
(mmaweekly.com)
If there’s one ideal that’s become all too commonplace in sports, it is “what have you done for me lately?” What someone may have accomplished in the past can quickly be forgotten if in the eyes of observers they haven’t performed up to those previous standards in recent times. For Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight Mike “Quick” Swick that is must have been how it felt to him – despite his impressive credentials for both the promotion and in his overall MMA career – when people began to doubt him and his skills.

He told Fighters Only earlier: “I signed a contract today and sent it back to my manager. And he will be forwarding it to the UFC. “It’s a four-fight deal; I don’t know who my first opponent is, but my manager did say it might be at UFC 95 in February.”

TUF 8 Finale Averages 1.9 Million Viewers
(mmajunkie.com)
The ratings for the TUF 8 Finale on Spike are out and it's a very mixed bag. The show did a 1.3 rating with 1.9 million viewers-while it was the #1 program on all TV in its timeslot among men 18-34, it also was down from the season 7 finale and was the 2nd-lowest rated finale yet. Only the TUF 4 Finale did worse.

Cantwell Explains Controversial Comment
(mmaontap.com)
Following Steve Cantwell’s impressive submission victory over Razak Al Hassan at last week’s UFC Fight for the Troops, the victor gave a post fight interview that included some comment that many have felt were inappropriate. Cantwell won the fight via armbar in which his opponent’s elbow dislocated due to the pressure applied. While being interviewed by Joe Rogan, Cantwell said that he had “always wanted to do that” and seemingly was very pleased when he watched the replay and saw the joint dislocate. ...like I said in other threads...he's not a bad guy, he just got caught up in the moment.

Evans takes relaxed approach
(uk.eurosport.yahoo.com)
"If I am out there and I see him sort of looking relaxed or looking like he thinks it is going to be complacent first round then I will go out there and try to knock his head off." "I know he does kick well to the legs, but I am not really very worried about it, to be honest. "If he lands a couple of solid kicks, it could do some damage, but hopefully I am going to keep moving around enough and check those kicks when they come, if not and he catches me then I have to make him pay."

Wanderlei Says "No Problem" To Fight Forrest
(mmaweekly.com)
The growth of MMA has also led to the growth of major gyms and teams around the world, but eventually teammates sometimes have to fight and that may be the case down the road for Wanderlei Silva and training partner Forrest Griffin if they both should win on Dec. 27. Griffin spoke out on the subject recently, telling MMAWeekly.com, "It's going to happen one day. He knows that and he's cool with it; I'm cool with it." Silva spoke to MMAWeekly Radio about his friend and training partner and the likelihood of them fighting in the future. "I'm a professional, he's a professional. He's an amazing guy," the Brazilian said about Griffin. "I train with him so hard, this guy he's really upped his boxing. He's got very good ground, very good wrestling, and I think he's a very, very tough opponent." Friendship aside, Silva wants a shot at the UFC light heavyweight title and if that road goes through Forrest Griffin, the two competitors will square off in the Octagon and then shake hands when it's all over. "I know and he knows that this is a business and if I win and he wins, I'd fight him no problem," Silva stated. "He's my good friend, but business is business. This is professional." With both fighters on the upcoming UFC 93 card in Las Vegas, Silva and Griffin have been sparring and training together non-stop in preparation for each of their respective bouts, Silva against former UFC champ Quinton Jackson and Griffin defending his belt from fellow Ultimate Fighter winner Rashad Evans. "I train with him more because I’m going to fight the same day," commented Silva. "It's good to have him because he's tall, he's stronger, has good punches, good takedowns, and he does very good training." Silva is confident that it is Forrest Griffin who will come out on top in his title defense, which could ultimately lead to a showdown of teammate vs. teammate.

Gouveia calling For Title Shot: ''Would Fight Anderson Tomorrow''
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Wilson Gouveia (12-5) is already calling for a shot at the middleweight title, despite having fought just one bout in the division after dropping down from light-heavyweight. Gouveia defeated Jason Macdonald by armbar at The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 Finale on Saturday night. Speaking to Fighters Only yesterday, he said: “I feel that I am ready to go, I am ready to fight against the best in the weight class. “I think at middleweight I can be a champion, I really want to be a champ. And I’m ready to go, I can fight Anderson Silva tomorrow if they let me.”
