Thiago Alves Gets Title Shot After Fitch
(mmajunkie.com)
After earning his fifth straight victory in the UFC's welterweight division, American Top Team's Thiago "Pitbull" Alves (14-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) is now directly behind No. 1 contender Jon Fitch (17-2 MMA, 8-0 UFC) for a shot at the title. Alves was informed of his positioning by UFC matchmaker Joe Silva immediately following the 24-year-old Brazilian's TKO victory over Karo Parisyan (18-5 MMA, 8-3 UFC) at Ultimate Fight Night 13. Alves discussed his possible title contention, as well as the hotly debated ending of the Parisyan bout, while a guest on Monay's edition of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), a content partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "Right now I heard I'm right behind Jon Fitch," Alves said. "That's what Joe Silva told me." to the rest of the story. Good to see two deserving contenders at last. They both could actually stand a chance of winning too.

Sorting Out the UFC Lightweights
(sherdog.com)
As Kenny Florian showered Joe Lauzon with punches from the mount at UFC Fight Night, the final pieces of a very muddled lightweight picture were undoubtedly being shuffled for the umpteenth time in the mind of UFC matchmaker Joe Silva. With Sean Sherk set to challenge champion B.J. Penn for his former title May 24, Silva will have some time to sort things out after watching four of his most promising 155-pounders secure victories last Wednesday in Colorado. "The lightweight class is stacked," said Florian, highlighting Silva's propitious dilemma. "Look at all the guys who won [Wednesday] night and some of the guys who lost. They are all tough."

Can Serra Do It Again?

The odds seemed insurmountable, the goal unattainable for the challenger at UFC 69. Georges St-Pierre was the present and future of the UFC welterweight division one year ago. He was universally recognized as the top 170-lb fighter in the world, and among the top three in the game, pound-for-pound.

Kenny Florian — not Joe Rogan — will be the color commentator alongside Mike Goldberg at UFC 83: “Serra vs. St. Pierre 2? at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, on April 19. Here’s a snip from “Ken Flo:” “I’m looking forward to it. It’s not only going to be a tremendous night of fights, but it will be a great experience for me to get in there and commentate and watch these amazing fights real up close and do what I normally do on the couch, and yell and scream, except do it on TV.”

Emerson (not Stephens) vs. Etim booked for UFC 84
(mmajunkie.com)
British fighter Terry Etim (10-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will meet lightweight Rob Emerson (7-6 MMA, 1-0 UFC) -- not Jeremy Stephens -- at a UFC 84 event that takes place May 24 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The bout was today added to UFC.com's Events page. As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported, Etim was originally slated to face up-and-comer Stephens. However, we've since been told that Stephens was pulled from the bout to deal with a "minor legal situation," according to a source close to the fighter. Stephens remains with the UFC and is expected to be added to a fight card this summer. Etim will return to the octagon for the first time since a unanimous-decision loss to Gleison Tibau at this past September's UFC 75 event in London. Prior to the loss -- the first of Etim's career -- the 22-year-old Brit made his UFC debut with a stunning comeback over Matt Grice at UFC 70. After getting beaten around for much of the first round, Etim reversed his position and locked in a fight-ending guillotine choke. He earned a $30,000 "Submission of the Night" bonus for the performance.

Monday Morning Reverie: Exactly How Good?
(sherdog.com)
Kenny Florian toppled Joe Lauzon in the main event of UFC Fight Night last Wednesday, a solid event that was the perfect segue to season seven of the hit television series "The Ultimate Fighter." It was a stellar performance by the inaugural "first runner up" from the first TUF reality series, and the win came against a sturdy, albeit young, opponent. But in the wake of Florian's second-round triumph over "J-Lau," the question remains: Exactly how good is Florian?

Former Pride Owners Sue Zuffa Holding Companies, Fertittas
(sherdog.com)
When Zuffa purchased Pride in March 2007, the MMA world immediately began anticipating the epic battles that would follow. However, the "Super Bowl of MMA" never materialized, and Zuffa ultimately abandoned the Pride brand in October. Now, one year later, the acquisition appears set to provide the fireworks it initially promised -- only in the court room instead of the cage. Nobuyuki Sakakibara, Ubon, and Dream Stage Holdings sued Pride FC Worldwide, both the Nevada and Japanese corporate entities, as well as Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta individually on April 2 in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.
