Antoni Hardonk (8-6 MMA, 4-4 UFC) discusses his decision to retire from fighting and focus on training other fighters with Ben Fowlkes: "In your twenties, you don't think about the future as much. You do whatever you feel like doing and you don't think about it. In your thirties, the future is more of a consideration. For me, I'm a good competitor, I have some talent, but I can't retire on that. I can survive, but that's basically it. So I decided I had to move on." In April, Hardonk opened his own gym – Dynamix Martial Arts in Santa Monica, Calif. – and began devoting more of his energy to teaching. Soon he had other UFC fighters like Jared Hamman and Vladimir Matyushenko training with him, and shortly thereafter fellow Dutchman Stefan Struve called him up, looking for a new boost in his training.

Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua talks Jon Jones: "He is a great young fighter, too damn good, and he’s coming with everything in our division. He is very good in wrestling. I think he and Cain Velasquez are the two guys with the best wrestling in MMA today, together with Georges St. Pierre. He’s a very good wrestler, very dangerous. He’s a guy who will give a lot of people trouble." HT: sherdog.com UFC on Versus 2 coverage [Jon Jones vs. Vladimir Matyushenko]

Vladimir Matyushenko still got paid for UFC 108: Vladimir Matyushenko: "Yes they still paid me the show portion of my fight purse [with Steve Cantwell injured] but I did not receive a win bonus since the fight didn’t take place. I would have to say that the whole fight game has greatly improved over the years and the UFC paying me just because I showed up ready to fight is a great example of that. They have also increased the pre-fight screenings that they do on fighters to protect everyone involved because even though I had my medicals done for my September fight I still had to redo them for this fight. It just goes to show you that they care a lot more about the fighters nowadays and that’s great because you don’t want to end up getting somebody else’s disease. The fights are getting better, the promotion is getting better and everything else seems to have improved over last couple of years." "It is a great thing and I have even heard that some of the newcomers that come in to fight and lose are still given some kind of little bonus sometimes depending on their performance. It’s nice for them because this sport makes for a tough living if you’re only getting $2000 per fight."

Steve Cantwell +200 talks Vladimir Matyushenko -160: "He’s a big, gnarly, Russian wrestler and a tough fight for anybody, especially for me because I have these decision losses and this is a guy who wins decisions," Cantwell says. "In the back of my mind I know I have to go out there and finish this guy. I don’t know how to win decisions. He’s a good guy with decent stand up and real good control on the ground and he looks strong as hell. I just have to keep it in his mind and show him throughout the fight that I’m the younger, stronger and faster fighter out there." HT: ufc.com UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva coverage
