Shane Carwin Won't Be Listening To Frank Mir Talk
Evidently he doesn't fancy himself a pre-fight trash talker like Mir does. Carwin says if people want a great fight they don't need to talk-they just need to tune in. And yes, Carwin predicts a KO.

Rory Markham Is Going To Stand His Ground, Puff Out His Chest And Throw Down Against Nate Diaz
In other words, he's going to fight Nate Diaz like Nate Diaz. ""I think it’s a very interesting match-up. I like the kid’s style. I think we can definitely relate to each other – we stand our ground, puff out our chest, and like to throw down in there. He likes to play the heel, and that’s fine with me. No one’s going to take me out of my game. I try to fight without emotion, even though my style is very angry. "

UFC 109's Mac Danzig: If I don't beat Justin Buchholz, I don't belong in the UFC
Where in the world did Mac Danzig go? "The Ultimate Fighter 6" winner was on the scene one day in Las Vegas, training with the world's best, a UFC contract in hand. Then, he was gone. Danzig, 30, said he disappeared for three months and got fat. Fat for a lightweight, that is, at 183 pounds. He didn't train. He didn't run. He didn't watch fights. Nothing. Never mind how you get fat as a vegan (answer: Trader Joe's vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and soy ice cream); he hadn't taken off that much time since he got in the game almost nine years ago.

Diego Sanchez welterweight return targeted for UFC 114 against John Hathaway
He's back. After coming up short against BJ Penn in his Dec. 12 bid for the 155-pound crown, Diego Sanchez (21-3) will make his return to the welterweight division opposite John Hathaway at the upcoming UFC 114 pay-per-view from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, May 29. The "Nightmare" tweeted the good news earlier today. After capturing the first ever Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Championship in April 2005, Sanchez went on to win his next five fights in the crowded 170-pound division. Unfortunately his former TUF nemesis, Josh Koscheck, derailed his title aspirations with a unanimous decision win in a bizarre battle of striking at UFC 69: "Shootout."

Couture goes back to his roots for Coleman
It was 1989 when Randy Couture first ran into Mark Coleman. At that time, the two were both competing on the wrestling circuits, and they met in a Freestyle match-up that saw Coleman get the best of Couture by points. Fast forward to 1998 and the two were set to match-up for the UFC heavyweight title, but an injury suffered by Couture in training prevented the fight from happening. And now, in 2010, the two legendary fighters are finally set to meet each other again, this time at light heavyweight with a possible title shot on the line. Couture has been working at his home camp at Xtreme Couture to prepare for the main event bout, and despite some turnover of coaches and fighters at the gym, the former Olympic hopeful says everything has been positive getting ready for the fight.

Matyushenko says recent setback beneficial for UFC on Versus 1 appearance
As UFC light heavyweight Vladimir Matyushenko (23-4 MMA, 4-2 UFC) finalizes his preparation for a March 21 contest with Eliot Marshall (8-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at UFC on Versus 1, "The Janitor" admits the potential for another last-minute cancellation exists in his head. It's understandable. After all, Matyushenko had a UFC 108 bout with Steve Cantwell scratched the week of the fight. "That's part of the game," Matyushenko recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "Injuries happen, and it's always frustrating, but deep inside my head, I'm always ready for that because it can always happen."
