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.

UFC Cuts Frank Trigg
Triggonomics no longer has a place in UFC. The losing streak of death today claimed Frank Trigg, who confirmed he has been cut by the promotion. Trigg went 6-1 to earn his second shot in UFC after a 2-3 run before but was TKO'd by Josh Koscheck in September then was KO'd by Matt Serra at UFC 109. He's undecided on future plans.

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.

UFC Quick Quote: Krzysztof Soszynski preparing for a bloody war against Stephan Bonnar on Feb. 21
I’m not expecting to go into this fight and win this fight in the first or second round. Most likely this is going to be a brutal fight, a lot of blood everywhere on both sides. I know he’s going to come out very aggressive. I mean his job could be on the line with him losing his last two fights. He’s going to be preparing 100 percent, be aggressive and come out firing to finish this fight.

Michael Bisping: 'Rampage thinks I will beat Wanderlei easily'
We have been discussing tactics for the fight, little tips and discussions about Wanderlei’s movement and shots, and Rampage thinks I will beat Wanderlei easily. He has inspired me and has kept confidence in the camp high. I have to keep my composure in this fight. We know what Wanderlei does – he throws aggressive shots with reckless abandon, and I’m psyched to put my game plan into practise.

Rolles Gracie's UFC Debut Was "Embarrassing"
And according to cousin Renzo Gracie, it really wasn't due to training, injuries, etc. but actually nerves. 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." Rolles Gracie was TKO'd by Joey Beltran at UFC 109.
