The Savage Truth: Smooth’s Move

Editor's note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. The news broke Monday that former UFC and WEC lightweight champion Benson Henderson was jumping ship to Bellator MMA , and exactly zero people were surprised. Rumors of the signing had swirled since before his last fight in the UFC. Among many insiders, it had been viewed as an inevitable move for more than a year. Soon after the official story made its way into the news cycle, we heard about the ability to get sponsors -- take that, Reebok -- and the chance to fight for a title in the near term as key factors in Henderson’s decision. It wasn’t hard to understand why a fighter of Henderson’s stature would choose to make the promotional switch. What was confusing to some was why the UFC would waive its right to match his deal with Bellator. When you consider the kind of contract it was going to take to keep Henderson in the UFC, and the fact that he was no longer competing at the top of the lightweight division, it became a little more obvious why the former champ was granted his freedom.

UFC Newcomer Abdul-Kerim Edilov Faces Potential USADA Anti-Doping Violation

Abdul-Kerim Edilov , who was scheduled to make his Octagon debut last month, has been notified of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation from an out-of-competition sample. The UFC released a statement on the matter on Tuesday evening. As usual, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency will handle the situation as it progresses. The substance for which Edilov tested positive was not revealed. “USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case,” the statement read. “It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy,  there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.” Edilov was supposed to face Francimar Barroso at UFC Fight Night in Boston on Jan. 17, but was forced to withdraw from the light heavyweight contest. Elvis Mutapcic replaced Edilov and lost a unanimous decision to Barroso.

He has courage. There's a courage in running for president, there's also a huge ego involved, there's a few things that you need to be a political candidate.

Tim Means pulled from Pittsburgh main event due to potential anti-doping violation

It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. However, because Means was scheduled to compete against Donald Cerrone on February 21 in Pittsburgh, there is insufficient time for a full review and proper promotion before the scheduled bout. As a result, UFC will announce shortly a replacement opponent for Cerrone on the UFC Fight Night card in Pittsburgh."
