Keith Jardine perhaps expected to lose at UFC 96 …
(mmamania.com)
… at least that’s what he thinks, anyway, in a recent SI.com article: “I think [the UFC] is probably expecting me to lose. I think they’ve put me in other fights where they expected me to lose, but that didn’t happen. I guess I’m the guy they get to step in whenever they need somebody.” “The Dean of Mean” attempts to get his head wrapped around the thought process behind matching him up against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the main event at UFC 96 on March 1. It doesn’t make much sense on the surface, considering Jardine will not fight training partner, good friend and reigning division champion, Rashad Evans. And that’s a problem because the winner of the 205-pound bout between Jardine and Jackson would more than likely earn number one contender status. In fact, Jackson was already pegged to challenge Evans; however, the seven-week turnaround for “Sugar” between fights proved to be not enough time. Jardine has played spoiler twice before against big-name players in the division, including Forrest Griffin and Chuck Liddell. Can he pull off the hat trick at the Nationwide Arena?

(mmajunkie.com)
Although comments recently made by Marcus Davis suggest otherwise, sources have confirmed that his comments about Mike Swick vs. Thiago Alves happening at UFC 94 are false. In fact, Swick's next fight likely will be determined by the outcome of the BJ Penn-Georges St. Pierre fight at 94. Should GSP win, Swick likely will have to take a fight against someone other than Alves.

Luis Cane vs Steve Cantwell UFC 97 fight likely
(mmamania.com)
Surging light heavyweight contender Luis Cane (9-1) will likely get to sink his chops into the last man to hold the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) 205-pound title, Steve Cantwell (7-1), at UFC 97 from The Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on April 18. “Banha” was supposed to collide with Keith Jardine; however, “The Dean of Mean” now has bigger and better things to take care of, namely Quinton “Rampage” Jackson,” after division champion Rashad Evans revealed he would not be ready in time for UFC 96 in March.

Despite Third Round, Henderson Happy With Win
(mmaweekly.com)
Dan Henderson is breathing easier after his win over Rich Franklin. The same could not be said, however, by the third round of their fight. Franklin’s best strike, a left roundhouse to Henderson’s midsection, had taken its toll and was slowing the former Pride champ down in the main event of Saturday's UFC 93. “I caught the knee right to my ribs a couple of times, and really felt that in the third round,” said the plain-spoken Henderson. “It affected my breathing a little bit.”

Antonio had already been punished enough over the years, had many struggles and sooner or later that will catch up with you,”
