Can Uriah Hall Summon His Best Against Mousasi? | FIGHTLAND

Uriah Hall has become one of those misunderstood success stories in UFC. He’s shown major potential with his almost cartoon-esque kicking ability. Yet despite all of Hall’s promise, it’s difficult to rationalize how a fighter with such mediocre numbers, who has repeatedly stumbled in competition, has been able to ascend up the ranks and command the attention of an opponent like Mousasi. Perhaps it’s the intangibles that keep the MMA world glued to the moves of Uriah Hall; perhaps it’s because he seems so much more accomplished than a second-tier middleweight and TUF runner up.

He’s going in there to fight for his life and I can’t even go stand next to him?” Diaz said. “They deprive me on not just money now, but the right to stand up for not only what I believe in, but for my little brother. I can’t even go help my little brother. I’m like, ‘Y’all can go get knocked the f-ck out. all of you whole little, everybody in the room right now, but I got to keep my cool and walk around.”

"If you want to fight for a world title than keep on fighting. This can go for anything. If you want a job, a specific job in life and someone tells you, ‘you're never going to be able to do that.' Stick your finger up to them and say, ‘you know what, watch me' and go and do it and don't let anybody stop you. That's exactly what I did. People were telling me, ‘you're never going to do this. You're never going to do that.' I borrowed money left, right, and center to come over, to make sure I could survive over here and I did it, but it was a struggle."

23 Open Letter to the NSAC concerning the hearing of Nick Diaz

It is relevant to remember that, just over a year prior, the same Commission had called ex-fighter Chael Sonnen a "friend of the commission" and thanked him for his cooperation after his third career drug test failure. Mr. Sonnen's failures were for steroids and undisclosed testosterone therapy, both of which are certainly more "performance enhancing" than marijuana. One would think that an athletic commision such as the NSAC would be more interested in stomping out performance enhancing drugs rather than a recreational and medicinal substance which is rapidly gaining acceptance across the nation, but that would only be true if the Commission was truly interested in bettering the sport.

It's a full time job, for sure.

http://www.cagepotato.com/nick-diaz-suspended-for-five-years-fined-150000-for-failed-ufc-183-drug-test/

I feel like this is where I would normally launch into some hyperbolic rant about the state of mixed martial arts regulation, but I’m absolutely speechless. If Diaz’s suspension is somehow upheld, he will not be able to return to competition until he is 36 years old (unless the UFC releases him from his contract and allows him to fight overseas, which LOL). The most confusing angle of all this? Silva tested positive for steroids on two occasions prior to UFC 183 and received what was essentially a slap on the wrist. Diaz tested positive for marijuana *once* in three tests and received a suspension five times as long.

They say they are going to knock me out. Come on. Who has come close to knocking me out? I've got an 80% striking defense. You're not knocking me out. What are you talking about?"

36 NAC hearing for Nick Diaz live discussion & updates

Today's NAC meeting also includes disciplinary action for WSOF's Rousimar Palhares, who once again is under fire for not immediately letting go of a submission hold after both the taps and referee intervention. Jake Shields' little punch attempt afterwards also will likely net him punishment. Last but not least (and actually first on the agenda) is UFC middleweight Caio Magalhaes, who spit at Josh Samman after their July fight.

Recovered from Gunshot Wound, Former WEC Champion Paulo Filho Eyes Return

Paulo Filho was once one of the world’s premier middleweights. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com Former World Extreme Cagefighting champion Paulo Filho in October was involved in a confrontation at a party that resulted in his being shot in the leg. The bullet caused an exposed fracture to his left femur, jeopardizing his mixed martial arts career. Almost a year later, Filho is nearly 100 percent recovered. “I could have died, but thank God, I’m OK and I’m already training and doing everything normally,” Filho said. “The fracture was pretty serious, but I’m just like Wolverine -- made of adamantium. I’m already training. Now, it’s just waiting for the opportunity to return.” The 37-year-old appeared at the final training session at the Carlson Gracie Academy in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 25 and revealed to Sherdog.com that he has interest in returning to the ring on New Year’s Eve in Japan. Filho hopes to compete for the organization some are referring to as the “new Pride Fighting Championships .” When told of rumors of Pride being resurrected under another name, he showed immediate interest.
