Where The UFC "Fight For The Troops" Began
UFC's Lorenzo Fertitta not only has contacts throughout MMA, but in all walks of life. One of those contacts-Fisher House vice chairman Arnold Fisher, one of many working with the Department of Defense to help build the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, MD, originally contacted Fertitta about raising money for the project. And so began the plan that became UFC: Fight For The Troops.

Rising Star Ronys Torres Signs With UFC
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
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.

Phillipe Nover earns Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt
“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. My time is now!”

Yoshida Ready To Surprise Koscheck
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."

Junie Browning: "TUF Made Me Look Nicer Than I Was"
That was perhaps, according to a quick quote today, the one positive Junie Browning took from his time on TUF 8, a side not shown on TV. He says he's training but broke and says he's "eating beans and bologna".

Silva: Machida "Runs More Than He Fights"
Thiago Silva-who is certainly not short on confidence-is already beating his war drum several weeks out from his clash with fellow unbeaten light heavyweight Lyoto Machida at UFC 94. Perhaps it’s part of his pre-fight plan to rattle the cage of the “ghostly” Brazilian and get him to engage more often on fight night.

WEC veteran Mark Munoz headed to the UFC in 2009
Former Oklahoma State University wrestler and recent World Extreme Cagefighting light heavyweight Mark Munoz (5-0 MMA, 2-0 WEC) is headed to the UFC. Munoz is one of the chosen few WEC light heavyweights and middleweights who will head to the UFC following the WEC's recent elimination of its 205- and 185-pound weight classes. Munoz sealed the deal with a first-round TKO of Ricardo Barros at the Dec. 3 WEC 37 event. Ron Kruck confirmed the move during the Dec. 5 edition of "Inside MMA" on HDNet.

AKA To Kos: Follow Our Plan
Not regarding the non-signing of that contract thing that's gotten almost all the camp kicked out of UFC (or close to it), but regarding Josh Koscheck's fight Wednesday against Yoshiyuki Yoshida. Kos apparently didn't follow the plan against Thiago Alves and lost.

Dana White Slams HBO PPV
"Did you see the production? And that was HBO. Maybe they should give us some of their Emmys. The pacing was awful. There was no energy in the crowd. They had to loop Pacquiao’s music when he came out because he had to walk so far." -- Dana White, UFC president, trashing the horrendous production (and by extension the undercard matchmaking) from last night's De La Hoya vs. Pacquiao pay-per-view on HBO.

Eddie Sanchez: We're going to stand on our feet and bang
Eddie Sanchez (8-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) gets it. The 26-year-old may not be at the top of the heavyweight ladder. But as Sanchez recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), he knows what it takes to make it in the UFC. "I always feel every fight is a must-win situation for me, especially being in the top fighting organization in the world," Sanchez said." Either you've got to be well-liked by the fans, you've got to put on a superb show, or you've got to win and put on a superb show."

Josh Koscheck knows judo
“I was originally preparing for Mr. Yoshida before I stepped up and took the Thiago fight. .. (It’s) definitely a different style. He poses some interesting threats, but I definitely have a lot of good training partners at American Kickboxing Academy and I think I’ll be ready. I’m a good wrestler, so I think our styles are going to make for an exciting fight…. Dave Camarillo is a judo guy and we are working on the judo throws. And I have San Jose State former judo coach who comes over. And there’s a lot of judo guys at our gym — Dave Camarillo teaches a judo class. So I’ve been doing judo for some time . … I have no worries.”

Martin Kampmann vs Alexandre Barros UFC 93
Former top middleweight contender Martin Kampmann (13-2) could make his welterweight debut against Octagon newcomer Alexandre Barros (13-5) at UFC 93: “Franklin vs. Henderson” at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland, on January 17, acoording to MMA Insider Blog. The “Hitman” recently had his nine-fight win streak snapped after getting wrecked by Nate Marquardt in short order via bruising first round technical knockout at UFC 88: “Breakthrough” back in September. It was apparently a wake up call for the Danish kickboxer that perhaps he is better suited to compete in a division 15 pounds lighter.
