UFC 114: Ryan Jensen vs Jesse Forbes on tap for May 29
A middleweight bout between Ryan Jensen (14-6) and Jesse Forbes (11-4) has been signed for UFC 114, which is scheduled to go down at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 29, according to MMAFighting.com. Both fighters are coming off losses, meaning that this could very well end up being a good 'ole loser leaves town match. Jensen was last seen in action earlier this year at UFC 108 where he was defeated by Mark Munoz in the first round. Coming into that contest, Jensen had only won three of his previous seven fights and has only tasted victory once in five tries under the UFC banner. Jesse "Kid Hercules" Forbes, a member of the third season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), has had a bit of a better run lately than his counterpart at UFC 114. Despite dropping his last contest at UFC Fight Night 20 against Nick Catone, Forbes has only lost twice in his last nine fights.

Ed Soares: Chael Sonnen should fight Demian Maia to determine number one contender
"We've spoken with Chael on many occasions and have the utmost respect for him. He's never really come across in this manner, and it's obvious he's just drumming up hype in hopes to get a bout with Anderson. We are fine if this is what the UFC wants, but if you look at this logistically, Sonnen should fight Demian Maia first. Demian beat up easily, by submission, so why not make them fight first, to determine who gets a shot at the title? It's funny, but really, who actually listens to what Chael Sonnen has to say? The only time people listen is when he talks about Anderson. Who is he, really?

MMA's big stage gave UFC 109 winner Joey "Mexicutioner" Beltran admitted jitters
As this past Saturday's "UFC 109: Relentless" event kicked off with a trio of un-aired preliminary bouts, UFC newcomer Joey Beltran entered the octagon for the first time. His legs were sluggish, his feet like concrete blocks. Punches were hitting him, and he soon became oddly aware of his own breathing. None of it made any sense to the first-rime UFC fighter. As the refreshingly honest heavyweight today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (http://www.mmajunkie.com/radio), Beltran initially was fighting nerves more so than opponent Rolles Gracie. "The Mexicutioner," though, ultimately would beat both of them.

Melvin Guillard gunning for title contention under Greg Jackson
I was ecstatic to have my first win under Coach Jackson. Like I told everybody tonight, I started out 0-0, now I'm 1-0 under Team Jackson and right now my goal is to just work hard and try to move myself into title contention. Working with Joe Stevenson full-time, we're like brothers now. My confidence grows because of him. He encourages me and I encourage him.

UFC Quick Quote: Wherever Cain Velasquez takes the fight, 'Minotauro' Nogueira will be ready
I’m very excited for the fight. Wherever it goes, I’ll be ready. If he takes me down, we’re going for submissions. My jiu-jitsu will be 100 percent. King Mo is one the best wrestlers in America. We do a lot of single leg and double leg defense. I have a very good camp here. If I [win and rematch Frank] Mir, it will be different. I’ll be in better shape and no injuries. I don’t like how Mir talks.
