Dan Miragliotta On The DL
(fighters.com)
Prolific MMA referee Dan Miragliotta will be out of action for three months with a torn rotator cuff. The injury was sustained 30 May when Miragliotta dove in to save a whithering “New York Bad Ass” Phil Baroni (10-10) from suffering more punishment from Joey Villasenor’s (26-6) boxing barrage.

‘Elbow Room' Remains for Controversy
(sherdog.com)
What exactly constitutes an illegal elbow to the back of the head? It depends who you ask. That's the hot topic off the heels of June 7's Nate Marquardt-Thales Leites (Pictures) fight at UFC 85 in London, where referee Herb Dean (Pictures) took a point from Marquardt for illegal elbows, and the deductions made the difference on the scorecards. Leites, who was otherwise on the short end of a competitive but uphill battle, took a split duke by scores of 28-27, 28-27 and 27-28. Herb was right!

Walsall warrior to stay a welterweight
(setanta.com)
Paul “Relentless” Taylor knows he could be headline-maker in the UFC lightweight division, but while he continues to finish on the right side of 15-minute wars like he did against Jess Liaudin, England’s Walsall warrior is happy to remain a welterweight. There are some nicknames that just don’t ring true in The UFC. Rich “No Love” Clementi, Matt “handsome” Wiman…to name but two. But then there are those nicknames that encapsulate the very essence of the fighter. Thiago “Pitbull” Alves, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson…Paul “Relentless” Taylor. The 28-year-old has fought four times in The UFC, winning two, and losing the other two in Fight of the Night battles. Still, he remains behind a host of top names in the welterweight queue though. Time to drop down? Not on your life.

Iceman Rx Inc. Scores Major Success with Lyoto Machida During UFC 84
(emediawire.com)
Up and coming Mixed Martial Arts fighter Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida was the talk of the town as he handed Former UFC champion Tito Ortiz a defeat in what was said to be Tito's last UFC fight. Another big winner appears to be Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell's supplement company, Iceman Rx which had secured Lyoto Machida as a spokesperson for their nutritional supplement line prior to the fight. Although Chuck Liddell and Lyoto Machida share the same weight class, the business relationship was a simple decision for Iceman Rx, as Lyoto is touted to be a rising star in the Mixed Martial Arts world. "I think it's great for Iceman Rx and I'm happy to have Machida, a great competitor and humble fighter, represent Iceman Rx at UFC 84. To see my banner in the ring staring down Tito, an old rival of mine, during the introductions and watching Machida pull out a dominant victory was just icing on the cake," said Liddell when asked about Lyoto wearing the Iceman Rx Brand at UFC 84. Machida appears to be one of the first marquee fighters added to Team Iceman Rx, as the brand is growing at an incredibly rapid rate and the Iceman Rx Complete 2-Step Package gains a devoted following. When asked about his involvement with the new supplement line Machida said, "I'm honored to be one of the first fighters selected to be a part of Team Iceman Rx." This latest victory in the ring for Iceman Rx serves as a testament to the efficacy of the product as more and more fighters have begun adding the 2-Step package to their workout regimen. The Pre-Workout formula aids in development of strength, training intensity, and stamina. The post-workout formula helps with muscle recovery, refueling the body and muscle growth. Together they form the patent pending Iceman Rx Complete 2-Step Package.

Swick ready for all welterweights, including Fitch and Koscheck
(mmajunkie.com)
After controlling the bulk of the action en route to a comfortable unanimous decision victory over fellow welterweight Marcus Davis, Mike Swick (12-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) says he has now adjusted to fighting at 170 pounds. In just his second fight in the division since dropping from middleweight, Swick appeared to be a completely different fighter than the "Quick" that grinded out an admittedly less-than-stellar victory over Josh Burkman in January.

“Rampage” Downplays Forrest’s Win Over “Shogun”
(cagepotato.com)

I didn’t even watch that fight on tape yet. I was there, but that fight didn’t impress me much. Shogun wasn’t the same. If I watch that fight and try to go off that fight, I’d be misled because Shogun wasn’t 100%. If Shogun was 100% and fights like he normally fights, that would be the fight to watch. Heck, Shogun’s girlfriend could have beat him that night. … Things happen. I think Shogun took the fight with Forrest because he needed it. I don’t think he should have taken the fight on such short notice. I’m a fighter. I can tell how the fighter fought in the past and how they are fighting on that day. I could tell something was up with Shogun that he was hurt.
