Will Mirko "CroCop" Filipovic Prove His Decline Is Overstated?
"Hyppolite was in Zagreb for one week and two weeks I was with him in Amsterdam. It took me all this time to realise that it is impossible to prepare properly without a real good camp and authoritative coach. That was the main fault in my career, I was too lazy to go away to a respected team."

Vitor Belfort: 'I think I did the right thing'
"You can’t describe something indescribable. Everyone is upset but I think they understand the situation. It’s part of the life and I will come back stronger after this. This situation gives me more wish to become the champion. Soon I will be fighting for the belt and doing what is need. I just want to thank the support and endearment from the fans. I only ask everyone to root for my recovery."

Chuck Liddell: This year the TUF guys want to be fighters, not TV stars
We've got some good guys like usual, but this season there are some that I just know are going to be really good. The thing that reminds me of that first season is we've got so many guys who you can see that they've got what it takes. What's so much different is that the first season, we really didn't even know what we were doing.

UFC Quick Quote: Wanderlei Silva feels 'fast' at 185-pounds
"I feel so great. I feel fast. My timing is better. I think I’m going to have a great performance in the division. The surgery I make because I broke my nose a lot of times before. I reconstruct my nose because before I don’t sleep very well. Now, I sleep better and my recovery’s better, no? I feel great. My cardio is better now and I’m ready to fight (again). For my next fight, I trained a lot of wrestling, jiu-jitsu, and Muay Thai. I’m going to try and use it now."

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."

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.
