Coach Trevor Wittman says Paul Buentello tapped out mainly due to pain from his dislocated finger, and considered retirement following his loss to Cheick Kongo: "He couldn't take it anymore," Wittman today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "Kongo did a great job of applying pressure and (threw) nice elbows to the hip sockets and that high leg and the knees to the body ... that all had to do with it also. But his hand was in severe pain." "The rules are (that) the fighter is allowed to put it back into place himself," Wittman said. "If he can't put it in and he can't continue, the fight is over. The doctor just kind of stepped in; I don't think the doctor understood the rules. We went over it with the commission in the back room. It was totally not the correct thing to do." "[Buentello] said he was thinking about quitting," Wittman said. "I told him to not make any rash decisions. He was like, 'Oh, the UFC's going to cut me.' Honestly, from my perspective – and I try to keep it as real as I can because I love Paul, and I think he's a great fighter – I think he's got to have more dimensions at this high level of the game."

Paul Buentello +325 talks Cheick Kongo -500: We’re looking at which Cheick Kongo’s gonna come out," said Buentello. "Is it the one who fought Heath Herring and Cain Velasquez, or the one who comes out aggressively and wants to stand and strike? We have to be ready for both levels of Cheick, but I’ve been in this game for a long time, and whenever I put my hands on somebody, the striker turns into a grappler. We’re hoping that Cheick Kongo wants to stand and bang. That’s the bread and butter, let’s show the world that these two heavyweights can let their hands go. But we’re kinda predicting that he’s gonna come out and go for the takedown." -- full interview at ufc.com UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones coverage

Originally scheduled to face Paul Buentello at Saturday's UFC 107, Todd Duffee now offers some words of encouragements to Buentello for his fight with Stefan Struve: " I apologize for not being able to make it this weekend. Good luck against struve. I'd like to see you win and stay healthy and eat lots of burritos so we can have our fight. I know the fans wanted it and I know we both wanted it. Watch struves knees when tossing that over hand at him and maybe think about shaving your entire body to slime out of his submision game." HT: The UG

Paul Buentello temporarily banned from American Kickboxing Academy after hiring an outside manager: "I’m on suspension. I think Bob [Cook] has most control of it, letting me back in the gym," "I’ve always came to this crossroads, if I ever go back to the UFC, I gotta have somebody on board that’s gonna sell me like I’m the best thing since sliced bread," said Buentello. The native Texan believes that someone is Elis Pacheco of New York-based Dedos Marketing Group, which has worked with Ice-T, Fat Joe and Beyonce Knowles. "You just get that vibe, you know? That he’s out for your best interest no matter what and he doesn’t care about pushing the limits," he said. "He’s gonna get the deal done." "I’ve been there a long time," said Buentello. "That’s my home. It sucks, it sucks, it sucks that I can’t go home for a little bit." [Dave] Velasquez, an original member of AKA’s fight team alongside Cook and Buentello, has taken over Buentello’s camp. HT: FIGHT Magazine
