Former Strikeforce lightweight champ Josh Thomson signs with Bellator

“I’m over here reading this UFC reporter saying that they’ve declined to re-sign me when the truth of the matter is that they’ve been trying to re-sign me for my last two fights,” Thomson stated. “I declined and instead chose to fight out my contract and test the free agency market with Bellator.

Stories from the Road: Pat Miletich - Room Service

Pat Miletich lived, ate and breathed fighting. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com Pat Miletich can travel back to a time when he was driving in those cramped, cranky U-Haul trucks, a folded cage in the back, rumbling along some dim backroad managing to hit every conceivable bump and pothole on the way to Who Knows Where, USA. The Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s first welterweight titleholder remembers when people actually scratched their heads and wondered what mixed martials arts was. Miletich was a prophet then -- it was only 20 years ago -- as he helped advance a sport and, to a point, a way of life that has not only grown exponentially in the United States but internationally. It is why, when talking to the MMA legend, you get the visceral feeling Miletich has “been everywhere and done everything.” “The Croatian Sensation” can honestly claim he has fought or coached in almost every nook and cranny across the country. Though he never does, he can say he helped pave the way for Chris Weidman , Anthony Pettis , Daniel Cormier and Robbie Lawler .

Tennis’ demographics are also strong with tennis fans wielding high disposable incomes to spend on equipment, apparel, watches and cars.

UFC 192: Johny Hendricks will remind people why UFC fighters are scared of his hands

"Don't get me wrong, I say this a lot: You're only as good as your last fight. The only thing is, my last five or six fights have all been top five or better. Carlos Condit came off of a year and he fights No. 12. Thiago Alves is a tough dude, he is, but he's not a top five dude. Guess what? I can go back in there, get another win. I can showcase why I'm No. 1, and why they shouldn't have given a No. 4 ranked [fighter a title shot] over a No. 1 ranked. People [are going] to relearn why they are scared of my hands. My combinations, my kicks, everything's looking good. It's time to focus back on power -- hitting somebody and seeing if they can withstand that punch."

I just, after scrambling around, and fighting for the amount of time that I did, I just wasn't able to get back to my feet and be light on my feet."
