Gegard Mousasi severs ties with M-1 Global
One of mixed martial arts most promising talents will no longer answer to the powers that be under the M-1 Global banner, as Gegard Mousasi announced the end of his business relationship with the Vadim Finkelchtein-led fight promotion. From "The Dreamcatcher," courtesy of Sherdog.com: "After careful consideration, I have decided that it is in my best interest to part ways with M-1 Global. During the time I spent under their wing, M-1 Global, as a promoter and management company, allowed me to achieve many great things. I appreciate all they have done for me. My management is [now] being taken care of by someone close to me."

Belfort possibly injured; title fight canceled?
Jayme Sandall, Karate trained of the challenger, revealed to TATAME.com that Belfort had a shoulder injury, but he doesn’t know how bad it is. “He was training but not using the arm for a long time because of the injury, he said he’d stop for a while. He said he’d have it scanned to know how bad it is, but I don’t talk with him for 15 days and I don’t know about the results”, said.

Joey Beltran and Renzo Gracie Talk Rolles Gracie's Dismal Debut at UFC 109
"It was embarrasing. I can tell you he wasn't in that bad of shape. Fact is the nerves drained him of his energy. His stand up and ground work looked bad, nothing at all like he was doing in training leading up to the fight and it was if he couldn't hear what I was telling him. I think the pressure he put on himself overwhelmed him. He'll learn and be back."

Josh Koscheck Is Being Photoshopped Into a Living Death
Who knows what will happen when Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley mix it up at UFC 113 (May 8th, Montreal), but Semtex has scored a first-round KO in the battle of insulting pre-fight Photoshops. Peeved at Koscheck's recent Twitter outbursts, Daley stopped by The UG earlier today to post this call to arms.

History Proves Quality Performances Are Essential to Title Aspirations
While the "what have you done for me lately" ideology that the UFC seems to be using to justify the title match-ups is evident, there are plenty of other factors. That concept also includes how impressive you've been in your performances, your drawing power, and the ability to produce hype around fights. Jon Fitch hasn't shown any of those attributes in his performances, and some would say he's putting himself into a problematic situation of being the next Yushin Okami.

Evan Dunham, if you're listening, keep winning ...
I performed like crap. He’s a good fighter. He came in and did what he had to do, but I went in there not thinking about the fight. I had a lot of other things on my mind so it kind of hurt me. There was no doubt in my mind that I was going to beat Cole Miller when I fought him, but against Dunham I had a lot of problems going through my head.

Vera Still Mad About Couture Decision
"Hell no, (expletive) that decision man," Vera said. "I'm still mad about that decision." When the scorecards were read, Couture got the nod on a unanimous decision from the judges, but many felt that Vera's ability to land damage whenever the two did engage was enough for the win.

Jon Fitch's AKA teammate Cain Velasquez doesn't believe the guard is dead
"I wouldn't say that because everybody has that chance to submit people, and this game has grown so big that (you have to be) good in every area of MMA," Velasquez told reporters during a media teleconference promoting his fight with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 110 on Feb. 21 in Sydney, Australia.

Pink Slip Day in the UFC: Coleman, Nover, & Hague Cut After Losses
Phillipe Nover (0-3 in the UFC) lost a unanimous decision to Rob Emerson on the UFC 109 preliminary card, which, when added to his controversial TKO loss to Kyle Bradley and his totally legitimate decision loss to Efrain Escudero in the TUF 8 Finale, pretty much guaranteed that he’d be cut. For a guy once hailed as a 155-pound Anderson Silva, he turned out to be an epic Octagon bust. "i know you guy know coleman and hague got cut..but news flash nover's gone too"

Brian Foster Talks UFC 110 & Childhood
Brian Foster “Ready for Lytle and Australia”

PDG: You had lost your debut with the UFC but most recently beat someone close to the top ten rankings. How do you feel so far with your experiences with the promotion? Brian Foster: In the first fight I had a lot of jitters – which is understandable, but I should have performed in the first fight like I did in the second. Had it not been for the nerves I probably would have. I knew coming into the second fight with Larson that it was get it or go – if I didn't get it they would have probably ended my contract and I wouldn't have fought for the UFC anymore. It is the biggest organization in the world and I'm happy and thankful to be a part of it.

Swimming with the sharks, UFC 109 winner Rob Emerson ready for busy 2010
Many young fighters with good camps and solid management teams often are forced to make a tough decision: Sign with a major organization such as the UFC and risk a quick release, or stay on the regional fight circuit to get that crucial experience.
