Win or go home: Gray Maynard UFC 96 interview
One of the more promising fights on the UFC 96: “Jackson vs. Jardine” card is a lightweight scrap between Gray Maynard (6-0, with 1 no contest) and Jim Miller (13-1). Maynard is now perfect (4-0) in the UFC and was last seen at UFC 90, outpointing Rich Clementi on all three judge’s scorecards. The three-time Division I All-American wrestler (he wrestled on the same team as UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans) is also the only blemish on Frankie Edgar’s otherwise perfect record (9-1).

Wanderlei Silva on his ‘incredible’ fight against Rich Franklin at UFC 99
“… incredible, because he is the last champion before Anderson. He is a great fighter, a complete fighter and it is a good first fight for me in this division…. I didn’t see this fight [with Henderson] but I have seen two or three of his fights. He is complete - good ground, good stand-up, good takedowns, and I think he is a very good fight for me. I am bringing in several sparring partners from Brazil that are also complete fighters, I will be ready for him.”
