Anthony Johnson open to catchweight bout against Alistair Overeem

"He's still one of the top heavyweights in the world, in my opinion," Johnson added. "I don't think they're going to get rid of him. I mean, he's still going to sell tickets. People want to see him either win or lose, you know what I'm saying? It's not like when Anderson (Silva) was fighting or GSP was fighting, when Chuck (Liddell) was fighting. They wanted to see those guys dominate somebody. With him, they almost want to see him get beat up now, because of things he's done or things he's said, or whatever. (He) got caught up with some stuff that just changed people's view of him."

"Hi Pauline Nordin & Fighter Diet, I have been the hugest fan of yours for atheist two years. I never post or comment on your Facebook because I feel like you're constantly bombarded with so many people's comments and questions! It's insane! I know a million people want to talk to you and want feedback, for me it's the opposite! I merely want to tell you that to me, you're super women. I am 24 years old and spent my whole life skinny and non athletic. I have spent the past year working my butt off to add some muscle, but always got so scared when I saw the weight on the scale go up. But after reading your words everyday, following The FDX2 Diet, and weight training as heavy as humanly possible with NO CARDIO! I am finally seeing changes!! I went from 108 pounds to now being 121 pounds!

Michael Bisping: 'I ain't Jon Jones, what you see is what you get'

"I get under (Rockhold's) skin and I tell you what, I get such a kick out of it 'cause I just know his blood is boiling, and I love it. Of course it's more fun to sit here and say what's on your mind as opposed to being one of those guys that's, you know, just trying to say the right thing. You know I ain't Jon Jones, you know what I mean? What you see is what you get. No offense to Jon Jones, he's a nice guy. But people kinda say he's fake and this and that. I've always found Jon to be a very nice guy, but with me, certainly you can't accuse me of that. I certainly say what's on my mind, unfortunately."

FD Beginners Guide, 90 Days to Fitness (Fitness)

At the beginning of 2013 I was a chunky size 12. I had made it my New Year's Resolution to lose the weight. I started running and as you easily can guess, the fat came off BUT I was stuck with a skinny fat, saggy body. I still had fat to lose and was frustrated that my body didn't look the way I wanted it to. I found you in August. With the help of The Beginners Guide, FDX2, The Pyramid, Got Guns, Absession, and your Deadlifts ebooks I'm happily in a size 4. I have gained enough muscle to fill in my saggy, lifeless skin and feel amazing. I lift heavy and know that I have a long way to go, but thanks to you...I know how to get there. I know my results could be better, but my 11 yr old daughter is an awesome baker and I confess to having a sweet tooth! I guess I'm proof that even if you do

Alistair Overeem taking latest loss in stride, wants to fight again in 2014

If you thought Alistair Overeem was about to slip into a fit of depression after his knockout loss against Ben Rothwell at UFC Fight Night 50, think again. Overeem sent out a thumbs up on his Twitter feed shortly after getting caught with Rothwell’s right hand, saying, "Unfortunate turn of events! No damage..And will be back in gym soon to improve. Spirit is still high. Thanks fans for your support!" And on Monday, while visiting friends and family in his native Holland, Overeem appeared as a phone-in guest on The MMA Hour and said he’s still taking everything in stride. "I’m good," he said. "The fight was not good. That was terrible, a terrible result. I can tell you it’s such a shame, because I was in damn good shape. And that just proves to me it can alter in the heavyweights, one mistake, one blow." Overeem had spent his fight camp at Greg Jackson ’s, which he had alluding to being a nice switch-up from his previous camps in Thailand and with the Blackzilians in Boca Raton, Fla. Despite coming in a great shape and with renewed motivation, Rothwell upset the nearly 4-to-1 favorite Overeem by landing a big right hand above the ear, which dropped the Dutch fighter and signaled the beginning of the end.

Bellator hoping 'nice guys' can finish first

Part of the reputation he's created for himself is a function of I think he wants to be viewed as an honest broker in negotiation. I think he wants to be viewed as a guy who is trustworthy, who is not just capable of making you into a great promotional attraction and not just making you a lot of money and giving you the possibility of a strong career but on top of that someone you can trust and do business with. In that sense there's a certain integrity that underpins Scott Coker's philosophy.

I've seen some guy with a mask was with him, and, I don't know. It just kind of caught me off guard I was like ‘who's this guy.'

Welcome to the UFC, Daniel Kelly

The 36-year old Judoka is a four time Olympian for the Australian national team, placing as high as 7th in the 2004 games. He's an eight time national judo champion in Australia (outside his Olympic credentials) and wrestled for Australia at the commonwealth games in 2002. He fights out of Resilience Training Center (of which he is the co-owner) where he also instructs fighters in Judo and MMA. He'll be entering the UFC with a 7-0 unbeaten record, unfortunately it's not a terribly meaningful one. He hasn't faced a bad level of competition. Fighters like Kym Robinson, Bor Bratovz, and Ben Kelleher, are middling regional opposition. However, it has to be said that the Australian regional scene just isn't all that well developed and it's hard to take a lot of stock in his wins. He's not fighting cans, he's undefeated, and he's finishing fights, but he's yet to face serious opposition.
