Matt Lindland: UFC Won't Offer Me A Deal
(mmajunkie.com)
Perennial top-ranked Middleweight Matt Lindland is getting ready to sign a new contract with an organization, but it won't be with UFC. Lindland said Dana White won't make him an offer, and in a perhaps insulting move Lindland said it was UFC matchmaker Joe Silva, not Dana, who passed along the news to him.

Dana's Response to Cro-Cop's Departure
I just talked to DW and this is what he had to say: The split was amicable and the terms were decided on in advance. Cro Cops $350k (plus bonuses) contract had a clause in it stating that if he lost two consecutive fights Zuffa had the right to void the existing agreement and negotiate a new one. CC never dreamed that he would be so overwhelmed by the level of competition he has faced in the UFC so far and and the losses have impacted him mentally. The UFC did NOT cut Cro Cop from the roster nor did they threaten to make him sit out until his contract expired if he didn't take the pay cut deal. Rather than negotiate a new contract with the UFC right now (and risk racking up more losses), Cro Cop wants to get a couple of tune up fights (and wins) in some of the smaller shows (no more tune up matches for him in the UFC) in hopes of rebuilding his confidence and getting himself back on track. DW understood completely and supported Cro Cop in his decision. The last thing DW wants to do is shell out a six-figure purse to a fighter that isn't fighting worth a dayum. Even though it would have been lower than the original figure, it would still be a waste of money and resources. Cro Cops ultimate goal is to win the UFC HW championship belt and DW believes he still has the potential to accomplish that goal. CC's plan when he signed with the UFC was, "I will become Champion after three matches. I will need two and a half or three months off between each match. I expect to hold the UFC belt by the Summer. Then I want Pride Champion Fedor Emelianenko, Vs Me the UFC Heavyweight Champion on New Years Eve." http://www.mmaplayground.com/discussion/topic/cro-cop--mean-goodbye-pride-329p1.html

Tim Sylvia: Where There's Smoke, There's Fire
(bloodyelbow.com)
In this week's print edition of The Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer reports that negotiations between Tim Sylvia and The UFC are not going so well. He says they are a "full digit apart" on numbers, which suggests that Tim really is delusional, and that we won't be seeing him for a while. UFC really dodged a bullet with his loss to Nogueira. If he had won they would have had to pay him whatever they wanted or else they would have lost another heavyweight champion to contract issues.

He will take on Matt Hamill as a part of the April 2 UFC Fight Night in Broomfield, Colo. as confirmed by MMAWeekly.com with sources close to the fight.

Exclusive Interview: Matt Arroyo Talks behind the Scenes on TUF, Amazing Race, New TV Show and Matt Serra
(mmafightline.com)
Last week, I had the opportunity to sit down with UFC star Matt Arroyo and do an in-depth interview. Arroyo made it to the semifinals in The Ultimate Fighter Season 6 but had to withdraw due to a rib injury. Arroyo then won his first UFC fight against John Kolosci at the Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale in December 2007. MMAFightLine.com: Matt, I’d like to thank you for taking time out of your training to speak to me. Tell me about how you ended up at Gracie Tampa. You started training jiu-jitsu in 2003, right?

Cro Cop Talks
(mma-id.com)
From his personal blog on mmaid...... I'm off to Tokyo! A big announcement will come straight from Japan tomorrow (February 13). When the official part is done I'll be able to provide more information about everything, and believe me, I have many things to say. What you could easily guess by now is that I won't be retiring. I'll keep on fighting, it's my life, it's what I do.

Dana to Cro Cop: Less money or you're sitting out
(sportal.hr)
Jist of the article as translated by someone else: Mirko has been told that due to his poor performances in the UFC so far, the UFC is no longer willing to pay him the amount of his contract (signed when Mirko was at the high point of his career and was expected to be an immediate threat to the HW title). He has been given the option of re-signing for a lesser amount per fight (didn't say how much), or sitting out the remaining year of his contract. EDIT: The rumors floating around are that he's going back to K-1

Gono Discusses Hand Surgery (Funny!)
(sukimma.blogspot.com)
Akihiro Gono, who pulled out of his fight with Jon Fitch at UFC 82, recently had surgery to repair his injured hand. He wrote about the surgery on his blog yesterday which was translated by I couldn’t sleep well because my right hand is in pain even if I take pain killer pills. I realized how hard to do everything by my left hand. I want to get married so bad now. I’m 33 years old and this is my first time to dream about getting a wife. I want someone who is attractive and respectful. I should be competitive to be chosen by my dream girl though.

Another injury, another fighter pulls out. Bonnar out of fight with Hamill
(sports.yahoo.com)
Bonnar sidelined with torn ligaments By Kevin Iole Monday, Feb 11, 2008 6:29 pm EST UFC light heavyweight Stephan Bonnar will be sidelined for at least six months after tearing ligaments in his left knee during training on Tuesday in Las Vegas. Bonnar said he was working on his jiu-jitsu in preparation for his April 2 light heavyweight bout against Matt Hamill in Denver. He said he heard a pop and later learned that he had torn the lateral collateral ligament. "I was doing nothing out of the ordinary, just working on my (jiu-jitsu) getting ready for my fight," a downcast Bonnar said. "I heard a pop and I thought, 'Damn, what is this?' I walked around on it a little, but when I got home, it was really stiff and swollen." Man, this sure seems to be happening way more than usual of late. Guess its do to the fact these guys are training so much harder these days than say 5 or 10 years ago.
