Mark Coleman – “The Hammer” Enters the UFC Hall of Fame
(ufc.com)
The next time you watch a UFC event and see a fighter score a double-leg takedown, proceed to change position effortlessly and then ground and pound his opponent out, you can rest assured that Mark Coleman had something to do with it. A mixed martial arts pioneer who won the UFC 10 and UFC 11 tournaments and became the first UFC Heavyweight Champion in 1997, Coleman – who was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame Saturday night in Columbus during the UFC 82 card – has probably influenced the style of more fighters than anyone ever to grace the Octagon.

Anderson Silva by the numbers
(sports.yahoo.com)
The description most fitting when talking about Anderson Silva – aside from “underappreciated dancer” – is simply, “dominant.” Silva has burst onto the UFC stage with a level of dominance rarely seen at this level of MMA. The folks who questioned whether he deserved a title shot in his second UFC bout are probably feeling a little foolish by now The FightMetric system uses a stat called TPR (Total Performance Rating) to measure the quality of a fighter’s performance based on six statistical components (it’s like the NFL’s Passer Rating for QB’s). Scored on a scale between 0-100, the average score for a fight winner is 55. Since his loss to Ryo Chonan more than three years ago, Silva’s average TPR across nine fights is 88 with his opponents scoring an average TPR of 19. The sport has not seen dominance like this since Pride stopped feeding Wanderlei Silva a steady diet of undersized Japanese sacrificial lambs. With his match this Saturday against Dan Henderson posing his greatest challenge to date, FightMetric has analyzed every fight in Anderson Silva’s career to glean insight into how his historical performance might shed light on the upcoming match-up.

Anderson Silva is the new Mike Tyson
(sports.yahoo.com)
It started with a kick to the head. Then a wicked three-punch combo and soon another powerful kick, then a right cross, then a crushing upper cut and then finally an absolutely vicious knee to the face. Chris Leben had entered the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s caged octagon in June 2006 boasting a promising future, a 15-1 record and a granite chin. Forty-nine seconds later he was knocked out by Anderson Silva. The Brazilian, making his UFC debut, had unleashed an explosion of violence so impressive it managed to shock a sport built on explosions of violence. “I must have said Holy (expletive) 15 times in 49 seconds,” said Dana White, the UFC president.

Joe Rogan: love him or hate him, he is no act
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
IMO joe rogan is first and foremost a fan of the sport and not a Dana puppet. if you ever see him in other videos unrelated to MMA he truly does not care about what other people think about him and will not censor himself or filter his opinions to sound appropriate and meet the expectations of anybody he is a true ambassador of the sport, and and an outspoken individual to say the least War Joe Rogan

If you don’t know what the UFC is, then it’s time for you to move out from under that wrestling ring and take up residence under the octagon.

Andrei Arlovski Discusses UFC 82 — An MMAjunkie.com Interview
(mmajunkie.com)
Saturday’s UFC 82 event marks former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski’s first fight in nearly 11 months. The big question is whether it’ll be his last one in the organization. With just one bout remaining on his current UFC contract, Arlovski becomes a free agent after tomorrow’s fight with Jake O’Brien. And while there’s been a lot of speculation about a potential rift between the UFC and Arlovski’s management team, neither side has confirmed it lately. In fact, during Wednesday’s pre-UFC 82 press conference, UFC president Dana White was asked about Arlovski and his whether he’ll re-sign with the organization. Did the UFC’s head honcho want to tag the heavyweight fighter with a parting shot? Not so much. “Andrei is a guy we want (in the UFC),” White said. “I think we’ll get it done.“ Arlovski is sure to have plenty of suitors, but it appears the UFC isn’t willing to let him go so easily.

Anderson Silva – The Quiet Man Speaks Loudly in the Octagon
(ufc.com)
It would be a fight no stadium could hold, no pay-per-view system could handle. Anderson Silva, the UFC middleweight champion and the man many believe is the best fighter on the planet, pound for pound, would finally be squaring off against the only person he has ever professed an interest in fighting… His clone.

Dan Henderson – The Drive for More
(ufc.com)
War. It’s what Dan Henderson expects every time the bell rings. Whether he’s fighting you, me, or Anderson Silva, the PRIDE 183-pound champion doesn’t look at opponents as tougher or easier – they’re all the same to him. They’re all out for the same thing he is, so the only way he can ensure that he gets to the finish line first is by working harder, drilling more times, and preparing for the worst.

MMAWEEKLY-IN-DEPTH: DAN HENDERSON AT UFC 82
(mmaweekly.com)
Dan Henderson is one of the most seasoned fighters in mixed martial arts.

Here is a breakdown of what Henderson brings to the Octagon against Silva... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- what do you guys think of their right up on Dan Henderson?

Chris Wilson - Thinking Upset on Saturday
(ufc.com)
“Nobody expects me to win,” said Wilson in a tone mixing disbelief and laughter. “I don’t get it; I know how to fight, I come from Team Quest, it’s a great camp, I have an Olympic Silver medalist to train with every single day in Matt Lindland, I train with Ed Herman and Ryan Schultz and these guys go out and put beatdowns on people all the time. He does have one of the best camps behind him. My money is still on Fitch though.

Lesnar Returns In August, Pulver/Faber For Free
(bloodyelbow.com)

White also said that Brock Lesnar, whose debut on Feb. 2 led the company to one of its most successful pay-per-view events in its history, losing to Frank Mir, will have his second UFC fight in August. No opponent has been named but the leading candidate appears to be Justin McCulley. He also said the most anticipated WEC match thus far, a featherweight title defense by Urijah Faber against Jens Pulver, will take place this summer from Sacramento as a live special on Versus.
think it's probably a good thing to keep Lesnar out longer. It looks like UFC in June will be on Spike, so they don't really need another draw, and the more time off to train before his next fight the better. There are all sorts of rumors about who he's going to be training with, including BJ Penn, but it's unclear what is true at this point The Pulver/Faber news is good too, that PPV was going to bomb, but they can probably break a million viewers with this one if hyped well. Lots of exciting news lately!

Toe-to-toe with Big Nog
(punch.freedomblogging.com)
Interview with Big Nog: On whether Silva is the best striker in MMA: “I think so, in MMA, for sure. He hits hard, that guy. It’s like someone throw a chair on your head, a big chair. It’s like a heavyweight. There’s not many heavyweights that can hit like him. It’s different because it’s so powerful, but got a good speed. You cannot see the hands coming. When you cannot see, that’s the one that knocks you out, the one you are not ready to get.” You can listen to the audio of the entire interview, which is about 18 minutes, or you can check out a rundown of the interview at this link:
