Still disappointed by UFC 99 loss to Hardy, Davis seeks changes in MMA judging
(mmajunkie.com)
Nearly two weeks after his UFC 99 split-decision loss to Dan Hardy, UFC welterweight Marcus Davis (16-5 MMA, 8-3 UFC) still believes the win was awarded to the wrong fighter. But the 36-year-old realizes there's no sense in complaining over what could have been, and he's hoping for a chance to revisit the decision as soon as possible. In the meantime, Davis told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) he's hoping the criteria by which judges around the world determine winners and losers can be given a much-needed update and increased clarification.

The promotion heightened the hoopla today with the first installment of its tried and true media call. The cast of characters this time around featured welterweight champion George St. Pierre and number one contender Thiago Alves — Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir are scheduled to hit the airwaves next week. Two words can sum up the tone of today’s UFC 100 media call: Respect and confidence.

Lost in the Shuffle: Where Does Luis Cane Fit in the UFC Light Heavyweight Picture?
(bloodyelbow.com)
The "sniper" has been a sports' metaphor used to describe an athlete that usually performs in an outstanding manner while staying under the radar. Specifically, athletes who have been labeled snipers normally come up with big plays in the clinch or put up huge numbers quietly while mainstream media and other analysts focus on the bigger stars. We've usually come accustomed to hearing this moniker in sports like soccer, hockey, or basketball due to the "shooting" abilities of players within those sports, but the moniker can also be placed on UFC light heavyweight fighter Luis Cane.

He was released shortly thereafter.

Kimbo Slice vs. Chuck Liddell Just Makes Sense
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
Something tells me that deep down Chuck Liddell wants that one last fight. Liddell is the most popular fighter on the planet and a proud former champion to boot, there’s no way a fighter with his mentality is going to walk away on a sour note like his most recent TKO loss to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. I just don’t see that sitting very well with Chuck during his many years of life that will follow his retirement from the sport.

“I think Machida is getting a lot of hype, and I know he has lots of big wins over a lot of big fighters, and a lot of experience over me. I don’t think he’s Christ; I think he’s very beatable. They’re looking at him and his karate like he’s Bruce Lee. He’s not Bruce Lee. He’s very beatable. I honestly believe that a great Muay Thai champion will beat a great karate fighter any day; it’s been proven on lots of occasions. If Machida has (the belt) by the time I get to that level, I’ll be ready for him..."
