UFC Cuts War Machine
(mmajunkie.com)
Evidently at least one UFC fighter didn't learn from recent incidents about fighters getting in trouble for what they said-the latest case is War Machine. The former Jon Koppenhaver reportedly was cut this week by UFC due to controversial (and rather incendiary) postings about fighter pay and one clearly aimed at Evan Tanner.

Soares says they "don't see the advantage of fighting a newcomer" and wants to wait for Silva to see "who can get to 14-0 first".

Ninja Talks Upcoming Fights & Shogun Return!
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Murilo ‘Ninja’ Rua Update: ‘Coming to CBS’ EliteXC Middleweight Contender Murilo ‘Ninja’ Rua talked with PDG about his victory over Tony Bonello, his upcoming fight against Benji Radach on the EXC-CBS Saturday Night Fights on October 4th and his brother ‘Shogun’ Rua.

PDG: Your brother Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua is rumored to return later this year against Quintin ‘Rampage’ Jackson and other fighters. How is his knee and how often are the two of you training together? NINJA: A lot of rumors about ‘Shogun’ are running around on the internet. I read about ‘Rampage’ and Mark Coleman a few weeks ago and now most recently about Lyoto Machida. They are all just rumors; right now he is in the USA, training in San Diego. He was in Canada for a month conducting special training on the knee with a specialist and we kept contact by phone and radio. ‘Shogun’ is coming home next week and then I think that we will have the official news about his next fight. Right now the most important thing is to have him 100%, focus on the hard training and I’m sure that we will see him fighting again at the end of this year, for sure.

JASON MACDONALD WANTS ANOTHER FIGHT IN 2008
(mmaweekly.com)
The big fight that may appeal to a lot of fans is a potential match up with England's Michael “The Count” Bisping, who is headlining UFC 89 against an opponent that MacDonald has already defeated, Chris Leben. “I'd be interested to see the Bisping-Leben fight. Of course I already fought Leben. I'd love the opportunity to step up and take on Michael Bisping. He's getting a lot of hype in the middleweight division these days. Anyone that fights with the guys in the top half of this division that can continue to move my career forward.”

Randy Couture pushing for Emelianenko second, UFC policy changes first
(mmajunkie.com)
A year's worth of legal battles began their conclusion with one obscene joke by "Captain America." As UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture today told the crew of TAGG Radio, the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com, his year-long conflict with UFC executives needed a creative solution. Couture discussed that story, as well as explaining the changes he's worked hard to make within the UFC. "In kind of coming up with some strategies with my attorneys to open some dialogue with the UFC, I sent (UFC President) Dana (White) a nice text," Couture explained. "I told him I was on [an MMA forum], and there were some guys that were bagging on him -- no surprise there. They were saying that he likes to eat [expletive] sandwiches. "I told [Dana] that I stuck up for him, and that there was no way that could be true because he doesn't even like bread. "It's true. I sent him that text, and he texted me right back -- laughing his ass off -- saying, 'I'd love to talk to you. We can enjoy some [expletive] sandwiches together.' That started the whole thing."

Short Fuse looking to make a big explosion in Omaha
(ufc.com)
Some guys are fight made, and some guys are made to fight. In the case of Ed Herman, it’s definitely a case of the latter, but as a hot-blooded 21-year-old bar bouncer looking for a more permanent fistic gig, it didn’t hurt that he walked into a gym in the great Northwest that just happened to have some of MMA’s greatest warriors willing to take him in.

Transatlantic Bisping Confident Ahead of Leben Bout
(sherdog.com)
With world-class training facilities and coaches available to him on either side of the Atlantic, Bisping likes the idea of varying his training, though ultimately he feels there’s no place like home. “[In some ways], I have no preference,” he said. “When I’m in the States, it’s nice. I do this full-time, so a change is as good as a break. Obviously, the weather’s nice there, and the change keeps you fresh. I do enjoy the experience of working out in different gyms. “Thinking about it though, you can’t beat training at your own gym with your own teammates and coaches who know how you work,” Bisping added. “Tiki’s great; he coaches stars, but you look forward to getting back to the Wolfslair to start properly focusing on the fight.” Back in the UK, Bisping paints a vivid picture of what promises to be a brutal training camp leading up to his clash with Leben.

Interview with Lyoto Machida
(tatame.com)
There’s no way to find and opponent now, and I’ll have to wait another event to fight. I don’t know who’ll I face, UFC didn’t say anything yet, only that I won’t fight at UFC 89”, said Lyoto, sad with the scrapped fight. “It’s sad because I was focused, training hard and prepared, but this kind of things happens. I changed my training now, I’m doing more Karate and working out, doing less MMA stuff”, told Lyoto, who has no idea of who his next opponent will be.

Tanner was at his best with fans
(msn.foxsports.com)
"He was a person, like all of us, who didn't have all the answers but was honest enough to acknowledge it. And he had the courage to follow his heart's compass even if he wasn't sure where it was leading. Tanner was his own man, a unique and good soul." Pretty good article IMO
