Elon Musk seeks to hasten shift to solar by building factory
So SolarCity acquired Silevo for $200 million in cash and stock, and incentives worth an additional $150 million. Silevo has developed highly efficient solar cell technology that can be made at traditional prices, Rive said. To scale up the technology, SolarCity is discussing with New York state officials plans to build one of the world's largest solar panel plants in the Buffalo area, in large part to exploit the power of Niagara Falls, he said.

Forrest Griffin talks TRT: 'It's worth shortening your lifespan to be good at something'
"I did it, I think it's great. When it started, I had two problems with steroids. One, they're illegal and I'm doing illegal drugs. And, two, you're telling kids, fans, young people that watch the sport you have to do drugs to do this. Well, that's not true. The best guys don't do drugs. Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, (Georges St. Pierre), these guys don't use drugs, they're naturally athletic. The best guys in any sport don't use drugs. It's the guys on the second tier trying to get to the first tier that use drugs. I mean, I knew what I was doing. I knew that what I was doing is bad for my body in the long run, potentially, and I was doing what the doctor gave me, so it wasn't crazy. But I mean, you now, there's a chance (you can) enlarge your heart, enlarge your prostate, lose your prostate, not be able to (perform sexually) after 50. So I took that into advisement in doing that. But to me, being a better fighter was worth it. It was worth even shortening your lifespan to be good at something."

The New Zealand UFC Card Arrives Just in Time | FIGHTLAND
TUF Nations concluded earlier this year and created some much needed buzz in the Australian MMA scene. Although the Australian fighters didn’t succeed in securing the six figure contracts, they did show the world that they belong; with two of their fighters defeating their Canadian adversaries, and the rest showing the tenacity Aussie sporting teams are known for. The New Zealand card is arriving just in time to keep that momentum going, with many of the show’s contestants getting a second chance in the UFC. After the initial launch of the UFC in Australia in 2010, the dreaded curse of fan apathy has seemed to set in, a mistake they appear to not be making on their re-entry into the market.

Last Saturday marked an increasingly rare occasion for the fight fan attempting to have an honest to God social life, with the UFC taking a much needed break ahead of this weekend’s Fight Night doubleheader . That is not to say there wasn’t plenty of fight action to be witnessed — both the World Series of Fighting and Glory kickboxing held events in California over the weekend — but were any of you honestly on pins and needles to watch the former’s middleweight title fight between David Branch and Jesse Taylor, or the latter’s rematch between Mirko Cro Cop and Jarrell Miller? Thought so.

Charles Oliveira has never put together the type of winning streak that’s put him in serious title contention, but he appreciates the loyalty that UFC officials have shown him anyway.
Frankie Edgar views not making The Ultimate Fighter as contestant a blessing in disguise
When Frankie Edgar goes back into the cage in less than two weeks, a lot of things will be familiar. The date, July 6, will be exactly 365 days since his last fight, and to the week of the nine-year anniversary of his first MMA experience, in essentially an underground fight in the Bronx. The city, Las Vegas, was the site of his previous two fights and will be his seventh time in Sin City of his 22 career fights. Edgar's opponent, B.J. Penn , is someone he's shared 50 minutes in the cage with in two lightweight championship fights in 2010, both of which he won via decision. The year delay between fights, the longest of Edgar's career, has made him hungry even though he's facing someone he's beaten twice. And while Edgar won both the previous fights, Penn today is considered a legend of the sport as the first true lighter weight superstar in the U.S. Edgar really isn't talked of in the same terms, although one could make a strong case he should be.
Ronda Rousey, Urijah Faber and Stefan Struve join the Great MMA Debate podcast
Finally, the debate is all new this week as we ponder what Wanderlei Silva was thinking when he skipped out on a drug test, confessed to the commission that he was taking a banned substance and now believes he's all in the clear. Plus with the recent numbers from the last two UFC pay-per-views taking a dramatic dip, what does this say about the star power of the bantamweight and flyweight divisions?

Cage Fury Fighting Championships 36 Results: Lyman Good Finishes Matthew Secor | MMAWeekly.com
“I think I was winning the fight. I got hit with a punch, and that’s part of the game, getting hit with punches,” said Secor, 27. “I got hit. I don’t really remember anything after that. He hit me good; he hit me flush. What can you do? This is fighting. If I cared about getting knocked out I would’ve been a bowler, I guess. This is the job we have, and sometimes when you make a mistake in our profession, you get knocked out.”

SB Nation MMA rankings: Flyweight
The flyweight division has had some big fights of late but the results didn't do much to shake up the top of the division in the eyes of the SB Nation rankings panel. There are a few new entries, but that's only because we haven't covered this division in a while. So, here you go.
Video: Why has Arizona become a hotbed for MMA training?
But over the past few years, a new hotbed has started to climb to the forefront, and it’s not based around one particular team. The state of Arizona has been churning out champions and title challengers. So we asked a few fighters who train there just what’s in the water – or the desert air, perhaps – in Arizona that makes that their ideal place to prep for fights.
Learning how Beerbohm, a former meth addict, discovered his passion for mixed martial arts while watching The Ultimate Fighter from behind bars is a humanizing moment that many fighters (or at least, more than us MMA fans would care to admit to) could likely identify with. The same goes for the moments devoted to Beerbohm’s adorable (and slightly resentful) parents, who after serving as enablers to their son’s addiction for years, have rallied behind his newfound career and the more positive outlook on life it has given him. His mother even offers some insight into how Beerbohm came to be known as “Fancy Pants” thanks to a collection of old fabrics and her crack sewing skills.
After nerve damage suffered in surgery, Amir Sadollah planning fall return
A momentary lapse in reason by Jason High following his loss to Rafael Dos Anjos earlier this month not only cost him his job in the UFC, but now it's landed him a one-year suspension from the New Mexico Athletic Commission.
Ricardo Lamas on Conor McGregor: 'He's just a loud mouth'
UFC featherweight contender and former title challenger Ricardo Lamas tells Bloody Elbow his thoughts on his next matchup with Hacran Dias, his failed attempt to wrest the title from Jose Aldo, and a certain Irishman working his way up the UFC rankings who a few of you might have heard about.

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida believes Vitor Belfort is next in line for a title shot at middleweight following UFC 175.
Ben Saunders: 'I was visualizing my opponent was Bjorn Rebney'
I feel I was a pretty big figure for their organization, & I had a ton of fighters that had my back in full support, employees too. But no one had any power or weight to do anything about it. I just personally didn't give a f*** and did what I could anyways. He wanted play games I couldn't win, but in the end I feel Victorious!
Pics, videos: Cung Le, Michael Bisping head to Asia for pre-UFC Fight Night 48 tour
In addition to Bisping (24-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC) vs. Le (9-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC), the event, which is expected to stream on UFC Fight Pass, also includes welterweight contenders Hector Lombard (34-4-1 MMA, 3-2 UFC) vs. Dong Hyun Kim (19-2-1 MMA, 10-2 UFC).
Sonnen has no such pedigree to rely on. His effective ground-game earned him submission wins against Mauricio Rua and Brian Stann later in his UFC career, but keep in mind, this is the guy who used to get subbed by Brazilians on a regular basis. Our prediction: Sonnen sells a lot of tickets, then gets styled on. (And I guess Metamoris doesn’t drug test its competitors, huh.)
RFA 16 set for July 25 with Copeland-Jorgensen heavyweight title main event
“I’m very happy about this opportunity,” Jorgensen stated. “I’ve been following the RFA for a long time now and have seen really tough heavyweights like Justin McCully and Steve Mocco compete for them. It’s an honor to compete for the first RFA heavyweight title. Josh Copeland is a game opponent and I look forward to facing him.”
