Joe Rogan Not Going Anywhere
(bloodyelbow.com)
One of the more annoying things on the internet is when people make stuff up and report it as news because it's possible that it could happen A good example is a recent article by nutcase Rich Bergeron suggesting that Rogan was leaving the UFC:

.However, chatter coming into the Fight News Unlimited offices point to more than just "unspecified previous obligations" preventing Rogan from lending his comic voice to the Pay-Per-View broadcast, and his absence may not be temporary. Fight News Unlimited received information from a reliable source recently pointing to a possible Carlos Mencia-esque rift between Rogan and UFC President Dana White. No, Dana White's not stealing Rogan's jokes, but rumor has it that White recently mandated that there be absolutely no mention of Randy Couture's name in any future UFC broadcasts. Rogan has been outspoken about Couture and the impact of Captain America's departure on the UFC and the sport of MMA.
Joe Rogan posted today at The Underground that the rumors are "bullshit," and went into more detail on his blog.

There's been a lot of goofy articles written on the internet lately about me missing the UFC card in Montreal this weekend, speculating all sorts of silly reasons why I'm not going to be there, so I figured it would be a good idea if I cleared it up here. The only reason I'm not going to be there is because of a family obligation. I'm certainly not upset at the UFC, and I'm not quitting to start doing commentary for a rival organization. I've also heard some ridiculous shit about me having massive fallout with the UFC president Dana White, which couldn't be further from the truth. Dana is a very good friend of mine, and in the 7 years I've known him we've never even had a single disagreement. .

Paul Bradley discusses "TUF" departure
(mmajunkie.com)
For Paul Bradley, everything was going along perfectly. He was invited to compete on the seventh season of "The Ultimate Fighter," he won an elimination bout to earn a spot in the house, and he did it in convincing fashion. He was then drafted by UFC light heavyweight Quinton Jackson to be part of "Team Rampage" -- as a respectable third-round pick. good read, the guy sounds like a real class act, hope he makes a name for himself in elitexc

Greg Nelson: Brock Lesnar to beat Mark Coleman by ’smashing’ at UFC 87
(mmamania.com)

“Brock is a bigger, faster and stronger wrestler, who also has knock out power with his hands, and he has a better submission game. If Mark attempts to take Brock down he will be sprawled on and end up on the bottom getting smashed. If it stays standing, Brock will smash him with his boxing skills. Lastly, if Brock wants to, he will take Mark down and smash him. I predict Brock winning by smashing Mark with his size 4 XXL hands.”
Greg Nelson — one of the top trainers for heavyweight fighter Brock Lesnar (and Sean Sherk) — shares his thoughts on the preparation for his fighter heading into a showdown against Mark Coleman at UFC 87 in Minneapolis, Minn., on August 9. Lesnar dropped his Octagon debut to Frank Mir at UFC 81: “Breaking Point” in February 2008.

(mmajunkie.com)
Despite some rumors and even a published report to the contrary, the UFC and Spike TV have not signed coaches for the eighth season of "The Ultimate Fighter," which debuts later this year.

The application process and tryouts have already begun for the eighth season, which will include lightweight and light heavyweight fighters. However, reports that UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and former champ Frank Mir have been signed on to become coaches are not true

- FRANKLIN MOVES PAST SILVA; FOCUSED ON LUTTER
(mmaweekly.com)
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight titleholder Rich “Ace” Franklin will look to get back to his winning ways this Saturday night when he takes on Travis Lutter. Both fighters are looking to find their way back to the top of the 185-pound weight class. Franklin has been a mainstay in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio for many years, working with coaches like Jorge Gurgel and Neal Rowe, but for the fight with Lutter, the former champion has moved his camp to the Northwest and started training with Matt Hume. In a recent interview with MMAWeekly Radio, Franklin divulged that after working with Hume for a short time prior to his second fight with Anderson Silva, he decided to split his camp between Cincinnati and working in Seattle with Hume. He believes the change will do nothing but positives for his overall game.

Revenge or Redemption Awaits at UFC 83
(sherdog.com)
As it turns out, "South Park" was wrong all along and Canada is actually good for something besides mediocre NBA franchises. Namely, hosting big-time MMA cards delivered by the UFC. This time around we've got Matt Serra (Pictures) and Georges St. Pierre (Pictures) looking to establish who exactly is the world's preeminent welterweight as well as a trio of middleweight dust-ups, the official UFC baptism of an "Ultimate Fighter" champion and an undercard that'll have every fan praying for some quick finishes.

Fertittas bought Japanese martial arts business to kill it
(lvbusinesspress.com)
It was touted to be a mixed martial arts merger like that of the National Football League and American Football League. Japan-based Pride fighting was brought under the same ownership as the Ultimate Fighting Championship a year ago, which was supposed to lead to uniform rules and a big step in the evolution of a fledgling sport. But what was dubbed by some as the pending "Super Bowl of Mixed Martial Arts" never happened. Now the biggest matchup appears to be scheduled for a federal courtroom. Not being funny, but they bought so they can do what they please with it. As much as I might think them mad for breaking up the company when they could have turned it into UFC Japan or something and missing a great opportunity. At the end of the day it's their money.

Nothing Personal, Doerksen Just Wants Revenge
(sherdog.com)
It's not often that the fight game is more forgiving than the rest of life. When it comes to rematches, though, it sometimes is. Fighters occasionally get a chance that the rest of us dream about at some point in our lives -- to make up for something that happened in the past. Winnipeg, Canada's Joe Doerksen will get such a chance Saturday at the UFC's first event in Canada. He'll try to avenge a 2005 loss to Jason MacDonald when they meet in a middleweight bout at Montreal's Bell Centre. Should be a good fight. I always like watching MacDonald fight.

Serra not afraid to play villain’s role
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra knows he isn't going to be the fan favorite when he steps into the octagon at Bell Centre in Montreal in front of the expected largest crowd in North American mixed martial arts history on Saturday night. "I'm having my trainers and sparring partners boo me on a regular basis, so I'm getting used to it," said Serra, who defends the title against hometown hero Georges St. Pierre. "It's the same cage, it doesn't matter the city."

St. Pierre, "I Will Win Or I Will Go To The Hospital"
(mmaweekly.com)
When Georges St. Pierre travels to the Bell Centre in Montreal on April 19 to battle Matt Serra for the UFC welterweight title, he won’t have to venture far, as the fight is taking place in his hometown. He won’t have to look very far for his most adamant supporters; they will surely be in attendance. He won’t have to dig very deep for the motivation to fight the man who beat him for the title almost exactly one year ago. He will now battle for his shot at redemption and a second reign as the 170-pound king of the MMA world. With the rematch between Georges St. Pierre and Matt Serra just days away, the current interim welterweight champion, who stated he will not bring the belt with him to the fight with Serra, is focused on the task at hand and excited about fighting for the title in front of his hometown fans. “It pumped me up so much, I can’t believe it,” St. Pierre said about the fight taking place in Montreal. “It’s a dream come true. It’s a great opportunity for me to shine in front of my people by winning the world title, and that’s the guy I’ve wanted to fight for a long time, too, because he beat me. I can’t wait, it’s going to be fun.” Working with St. Pierre for this fight are a familiar cast of training partners including Denis Kang, Nate Marquardt, Rashad Evans and, of course, lead trainer Greg Jackson, who will formulate the game plan that is expected to beat Serra. “I’ve been working for my game plan against Serra. Like I said, in (this) fight people will see some stuff that I’ve never shown before,” St. Pierre stated in an interview with MMAWeekly Radio. “Some stuff people have never seen in MMA. So it’s going to be interesting. Don’t blink because the fight can finish very early, or it can go to the distance, but don’t blink.”
