Notes:

-With Vitor Belfort hurt, Chael Sonnen unavailable, and Anderson Silva unwilling to fight a 205er, the UFC made the right decision inserting Demian Maia into the UFC 112 middleweight title fight.  Yeah, Maia has a recent loss to Nate Marquardt, who Sonnen just beat for a de facto title shot of his own.  But are we all really forgetting that Maia tooled Sonnen twelve-and-a-half months ago? 

-I'd really like to see some combination of Marquardt, Michael Bisping, and Yushin Okami thrown together in the near future.  Any permutation are good bounce back fights for any of the three.  Bisping's been rumored to fight Dan Miller, which is also a solid fight.

-Chris Leben's made a pretty good living off of pissing on some poor guy's bed, hasn't he?

-I have a hunch that if both keep winning, we'll see Amir Sadollah square off with Mark Munoz within the next twelve months.  Mark Munoz is really awesome!

-Wanderlei Silva vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama is some sexy match making.
