From Lyoto Machida's Twitter: "Pessoal acho que octogono só no ano que vem" Translation: Guys I think no octagon until next year. --- If I may interject, this is some serious bullshit, especially with the recent announcement of Shogun-Hendo.

Scott Coker, on Sherdog's "The Savage Dog Show," joked about which changes not to expect from him after the sale of Strikeforce: "I’m not going to change just because I work for Zuffa now. People say I’m going to start dropping F bombs and yelling at people. That’s not going to change. I’m still the same guy and I love what I do. It’s been a great thing for me too."

What a letdown the past couple of months have been for boxing fans. First was the collapse of the superfight just when it was on the verge of being finalized, then two dull events involving the two men who should have been squaring off against each other. No one left the MGM buzzing with excitement. No one seemed to think $1,250 for a ringside seat was a great deal, and those who shelled out up to $65 for the pay-per-view telecast must have felt their cash could have been better invested in a couple more 12-packs. The biggest winner on this night could have been mixed martial arts, where unless Anderson Silva is in the cage, you pay your money and you get your action.

"I don’t really like the business model of the UFC. I don’t like the way they treat certain fighters. As a fan though, it’s probably my favorite show to watch. I want to fight the best in the world, and I want to remain active, which might not happen in the UFC. With Sengoku and Bellator, I am going to be fighting Kitaoka next month and when I return to Bellator I could be fighting another top guy in Eddie Alvarez. The UFC only has like three top lightweights: Gray Maynard, BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar, so this way I can fight most of the top fighters in the world outside of the UFC."

No Deal Between ESPN and UFC Still: But what about televising live fights? Skipper said it’s not likely to happen any time soon. ESPN already has a fairly full plate of sports programming, Skipper said, meaning ESPN would only want the absolute best UFC fights. And it’s hard to see how ESPN would benefit from taking its best fights off pay-per-view, where fights can generate upwards of $25 million in revenue. Skipper also didn’t sound particularly interested in having MMA outside the UFC, saying, "We’ve talked to other MMA leagues, but UFC is by far the best." Ultimately, Skipper says he liked what he saw at UFC 100 but that MMA fans who thought Skipper’s presence at UFC 100 signaled a future deal between ESPN and the UFC shouldn’t get too excited. "Nothing is imminent," Skipper said. "I came away with a good impression, but don’t get your hopes up."

Of course there was a bit of "using" and propoganda involved. The info put out there was not an accident. No one got high on drugs and fed me the info. They knew who I was, and it was very clear what I would do with the info when I got it. My concern isnt their agenda. My concern is their credibility and involvement in the procedures, and whether the info leaked merits reporting or not.

Fedor On UFC, Affliction, And DREAM: "Regarding the relationship with Affliction - it's wonderful, and I hope it will stay that way. I don't have any relationship with UFC." ... On this day it is completely unrealistic, since UFC is not answering any contacts. Vadim held the negotiations, but the UFC's offer was absolutely not acceptable. ... Everyone who used to be in Pride, have crossed over to DREAM. I'm not excluding the possibility of fighting in the organization, but not in the nearest future, because currently I have a signed contract with M-1 Global and Affliction. And if DREAM's managers can negotiate the terms with my manager Vadim Finkelstein, I don't see any problems with fighting for DREAM.
