Both Mir and Nogueira Were Injured Going Into UFC 92
Earlier this week, Nogueira’s camp confirmed that he had a bad knee injury going into the fight, but had remained silent about it. Today, it emerged (via UFC president Dana White’s appearance on the Carmichael Dave show) that the Brazilian had also been recovering from a Staph infection. But Frank Mir was not without his problems either, according to the Wrestling Observer, which reports that the former champion had suffered a herniated disc in training.

Rashad Evans Explains "Gesture" During Fight With Griffin
When [Griffin] got off his little flurry on me, and he gave me everything he had, I was like, 'Oh man. I've seen every trick in the book,'" Evans said. "And I knew that there was nothing he could do to really hurt me. I felt all his power, and I was like, 'Man, I've got this. I've got this now.' And I wanted to let him know that [he] can't hurt me. It's going to be a long night from here on out.' It was just a little fun.

"Horn won't be scared like Henderson", says Palhares
Rousimar Palhares (8-2) says Dan Henderson was ‘scared' to fight him on the ground when they met earlier this year. Henderson won by decision but Palhares' coach Murilo Bustamante criticised him for employing an "ugly strategy". Palhares faces Jeremy Horn at UFC 93 next month and told Fighters Only earlier that as Horn "has a better game on the ground, it should be a different fight."

UFC 92 Medical Suspensions
Former light heavyweight Forrest Griffin is the most notable competitor to make the list, but we knew it was more than likely a foregone conclusion after he revealed in the post-fight interview that he had broken his left hand in the second round of his fight against Rashad Evans. He needs to have the injury cleared by an orthopedic physician before returning to action otherwise he will be on the shelf until June 27, 2009. Griffin is suspended at the very least until February 12 and he’s forbidden to have contact until January 28

Chuck Liddell named as possible headliner for UFC 96
With Randy Couture recently quelling previous rumors of fourth bout with "The Iceman," the next appearance for former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (21-6 MMA, 16-5 UFC) is still an uncertainty. But at Saturday night's post-UFC 92 press conference, UFC President Dana White hinted that the fan-favorite could possibly headline the recently announced UFC 96 on March 7 in Columbus, Ohio. Hey I'm like the new Mmacca ha ha

Cro Cop Back to the UFC If He Beats Choi on NYE?
Our buddy Robert at FreeFightVideos has a report that suggests a return to the UFC for Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic might be as simple as a win over Hong Man Choi on New Year’s Eve. Cro Cop has apparently been dropping hints lately that the fight at K-1 Dynamite will “end one chapter and start another” in his career, and insists he’s not retiring. But Cro Cop has been increasingly vague about his plans for 2009, and when Dana White appeared on the “Best Damn Sports Show,” he stated that, “if [Cro Cop] wins, he will definitely be welcomed back into the UFC."

Dana White opens the door for “The Pitbull” to return
Speaking to CBS Sports, White explained: “In nine years, there’s only one fighter that I’ve lost that I didn’t want to lose. That was (Andrei) Arlovski, and it still bothers me.” “I jumped on a plane and flew to Chicago with Lorenzo (Fertitta) and kissed his butt to try to make him not leave.” “He wanted to box on HBO. He had a lot of different things that he wanted to do that I couldn’t let him do.”

Nogueira Addresses KO; Talks Fight Against Couture
"It was the first knockout of my career, said the ever-gracious Nogueira at the post fight press conference. "I feel like I didn't fight well tonight; I didn't fight my distance. He had a great fight tonight. He was a great fighter. He had better distance than me, he had some good shots at the beginning of the fight that changed everything I was planning. He's just great, he had a great night tonight and fought very good... he threw some strong hands. Nogueira was a bit somber, but appeared in good spirits following the fight; stating that he's committed to improving his game and insisting that he'll come back stronger and faster. As for an upcoming opponent? How about Randy Couture? "Yep. For sure I would accept this fight against Randy Couture," Nogueira said. "He's a great fighter. He just lost his last match but he's a true legend in this sport and I'd love to fight him. It would be a good promotion; we're both very experienced fighters and it would be a nice match."
