Joe Stevenson - All Bets Are Off
(mmamania.com)
Joe “Daddy” Stevenson is indeed a family man. But that never stopped him from whooping up on people inside the cage. At just 26 years old, the father of four boys has nearly 40 professional fights to his credit. He’s 5-2 in the UFC and is looking to rebound from a recent title bout loss to BJ Penn. When Joe steps into the cage this Saturday night at UFC 86: “Jackson vs. Griffin” in front of 12,000 screaming fans and millions more tuning in around the world, his eldest son, Joey, will be in attendance, watching his dad fight for the first time ever.

UFC 86: Quniton Jackson ready to get nasty
(mmaweekly.com)
The remaining question is whether or not Silva can transfer the kryptonite from his hands to Griffin’s. Jackson doesn’t seem to think so. “I’m telling you, Forrest can train with the Pope, it ain’t going to help him. Wanderlei ain’t going to get in there and fight for him,” Jackson stated to MMAWeekly.com. “Forrest got to fight me for himself. I don’t care who he goes and trains with. He can go train with Sakuraba. He can go train with Marvin Eastman. He can go train with Shogun. He can train with anybody; they ain’t going to fight for him.” As for his own preparations, once again training in Big Bear, Calif., Jackson has utilized many different sources to train for Griffin. Calling on his connections from his stint as Griffin’s rival coach on The Ultimate Fighter, Jackson said that he trained with Season 7 competitors Mike Dolce, Jeremy May, and Gerald Harris, but due to how he thinks Griffin will fight him, he called on a lot more training partners than them.

Thiago Alves VS Diego Sanchez likely at UFC 89
(mmaweekly.com)
While the welterweight division looks towards a championship match in August between current titleholder Georges St. Pierre and Jon Fitch, the weight class will continue to build towards a new top contender as MMAWeekly.com has learned that American Top Team knockout artist Thiago “Pitbull” Alves is slated to return on Oct. 19 to face former “Ultimate Fighter” winner Diego Sanchez. The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight. There is currently a verbal agreement with actual bout agreements for the contest expected to be signed in the next few days. Showing a true dedication to making his way to the top of the welterweight division, Alves has never been shy about facing top competition in the division. Most recently, he finished former Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight kingpin Matt Hughes by TKO in the second round of their main event match-up in England at UFC 85. Before that fight, Alves became the first fighter ever to knockout Karo Parisyan, thus solidifying himself as one of the most dangerous fighters at 170 pounds.

Dana White Makes The Case For Jesse Taylor
(cagepotato.com)
The UFC’s decision to include the newly-mature Jesse Taylor on their July 19 Fight Night has taken some heat lately. That’s because taking the moral high ground only works if you stick to it even when you desperately need to throw together a show designed to screw with your competitors. But Dana White is doing his best to make the decision to bring Taylor back into the UFC sound like a reasonable one. He’s also trying to battle the perception that the UFC encouraged the fighters to destroy the house and generally act the fool for the cameras.

Nate Marquardt Pulls The Old ‘Don’t Be Scared, Homey’ on Thales Leites
(cagepotato.com)
Here’s an interesting trend in MMA: a guy beats you in a fight through either a decision or somewhat questionable stoppage. You immediately demand a rematch, but he’d rather not do that because he wants to move on with his career and continue climbing the ladder in the division. So you do what any rational person would do. You accuse him of being scared to fight you again.

Brock Lesnar Talks About Safety in MMA
(mndaily.com)
"Just like football, basketball or hockey, the risk of getting injured in competition is there. But everybody that gets in the octagon is very well-trained. Also, in this sport, if I feel like my arm's going to get snapped, I can tap out before I get injured. In other sports, I don't have that option. If a linebacker's coming across and I'm carrying the ball, I don't have the opportunity to stop. I've been hurt more as a pro wrestler and as an amateur wrestler than I have in this. I was hurt more as a pro wrestler than anything else, because I worked 300 nights a year and they didn't care if I was hurt or not."

Georges St. Pierre Nominated for an ESPY (Vote!!)
(promo.espn.go.com)
Georges St. Pierre has been nominated for an ESPY in the "best fighter" category. You can vote , but you have to sign up. He is up against four boxers, including Floyd Mayweather, Joe Calzaghe, Kelly Pavlik, and Holly Holm. Last year, Randy Couture and Quinton Jackson were both nominated, but came up short. This year the boxing vote will likely be split, which gives Georges a good chance of winning if MMA fans sign up and vote for him. In some ways he seems like a token Mixed Martial Arts nomination, but I think he's a good one. Nobody else besides Anderson Silva has had a better summer to summer period since the last awards in the MMA world. WAR MMA!! we gotta stick up for our fighters! VOTE!!!

Cote: Career Best Needed to Beat Almeida
(sherdog.com)
Patrick Cote (Pictures) doesn't know where he was the night of Nov. 11, 2006. He knows where he wasn't: in the cage, calculating a way to counter the predictable submission attack of Travis Lutter (Pictures). "I wasn't there at all," Cote said. "Mentally, I wasn't there at all. My game plan was the worst game plan that I've ever had in my life." It was not the best time to come into a fight unprepared. That nationally televised bout, in which Lutter armbarred Cote in roughly two minutes, was all that stood between him and a shot at the UFC middleweight title.
