Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz in January. Cool. I hope both are being shrink wrapped in bubble wrap as we speak.
Olympic gold medalist signs to face Scott Jorgensen at UFC 177 RT
The quest for another gold begins now... #UFC
I'm not gonna be around tomorrow night to watch UFC on FOX (going to see Jerry Seinfeld perform) but the main card is excellent.
One more thing: have no doubt Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva is the fight that'll happen when both return. Let's hope they bout stay healthy.
I'm glad Nick Diaz got paid. Used the only leverage he had & got his renegotiation on his terms. Good for him.
Start printing the wolf tickets.
NSAC Belfort "stand" was basically, you won't fight until Weidman's ready, & for the title in LV so we can benefit from gate revenues. Joke.
Great story from

Interestingly, the 8 athletes tested during fight week all came back negative, so the EPO was out of his system by UFC 174 fight night.
Bagautinov was tested on 6/2, but results were not back in time for 6/14 fight, according to commissoin.
Bagautinov lost to Demetrious Johnson at UFC 174. That's the second EPO failure in MMA in a few weeks, following Chael Sonnen's.
No. 4 ranked flyweight Ali Bagautinov failed a pre-UFC 174 drug test for EPO, per BC athletic commission, They suspended him 1 year.

Saturday’s WSOF action on NBC averaged 906,000 viewers – a record for a WSOF telecast.
As you can imagine, WSOF was up against tough competition in World Cup knockout round.
The first numbers I've heard on World Series of Fighting on NBC was a .53 rating, a little over 600,000 watching. Waiting on official #'s.
UFC hasn't held an event at Thomas & Mack since 2003. Both other Vegas indoors arenas are booked for 9/27.
And for whatever it's worth, I heard the Jones-Gus II fight will take place at Thomas & Mack Center in Vegas. That remains unconfirmed.
was first to report Cruz-Mizugaki matchup. UFC confirmed.
Former UFC bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz (fingers crossed) returns on 9/27 Jones-Gus II card, facing Takeya Mizugaki, per UFC.
Is it too late to take the over in this game?
