Dana White developments...

The president of the UFC, Dana White, has made his long awaited appearances as we draw closer to UFC 120. White has explained his absence at the post UFC 119 Press Conference, explaining that the night on a whole was a disappointment - also highlighting that the main event, which hosted Frank Mir and Mirko Crocop, was the worst of the night. Dana expressed his disappointment by describing UFC 120 as even more upsetting than the Anderson Silva UFC 112 Abu Dhabi upset. Dana later made a speech in the Oxford hall and is preparing for tomorrow night's event. Pumped to see what's going to go down!

Anderson Silva's thoughts on Sonnen...

Moving forward a few months from Anderson Silva's shock performance at UFC 117, the Middleweight champion has made several new remarks about his then opponent, Chael Sonnen, a man who is now tackling a series of fines for being tested positive for the use of Anabolic Steroids. Silva describes Sonnen as an athlete, just as he is, and states that he does not care what Sonnen does but in regards to his fighting capabilities - Silva says that Sonnen does not deserve a rematch due to his mono-level approach to their previous fight, during which Sonnen lay ontop of Silva for 5 straight rounds. Whatever is said, a rematch is imminent, nothing can change the outcomes of the past but either fighter can redeem themselves for their disappointing performances.

Alright, bro's, I'm back!

...and, boy, we're only around the corner from UFC 120 Bisping vs Akiyama, with Bisping, Kongo, Hathaway and Hardy fighting we're almost guaranteed to see two knockouts, if not more. Shortly after 120 we'll be seated and ready to go as 121 gets on course, possibly one of the most exciting cards in the most recent years of the UFC's Heavyweight division as Cain Valasquez takes on Brock Lesnar.

In other parts of the MMA world, aren't we all aching to see Overeem hit the octagon? I mean, the guy's a beast, his physique and fitness is outstanding, his striking abilities are by far superior to 90% of the UFC's heavyweight divison and the guy has more fighting experience than almost any other fighter in the world! In my book, if Fedor isn't the #1 heavyweight in the world, Overeem is.

On the topic of Fedor, his management are, once again, being the cock-ups of the MMA business. They're Fedor's biggest nuthuggers and are determined to maintain all ownership of the great Russian, despite the fact his movement to the UFC would draw ten times more cash than a bout with Strikeforce would.

Also, Jose Aldo is looking to secure his place as the #1 lightweight in the world. After Aldo completely tore apart Faber, a man many believed to be one of the top pound for pound mixed martial artists, his confidence has solidified and the featherweight is looking for entry into the UFC in the near future where he will move up a few pounds and compete for the lighwight belt.

More news soon...
