Anderson Silva will retire in 2009

by: Jack Bratcher

We’ve heard all the rumors and the so-called “mistranslations” but it doesn’t seem to get any more clear than this new interview with Anderson Silva where he says he will retire once his current contract with the UFC is up.  He has six fights on his contract until June of 2009.  Silva says, “everything has it’s time and I believe my time is already over.”

When asked if it had anything to do with the salary he makes from the UFC he assures us it has nothing to do with that and that he has never fought for the money.  The reporter tells Silva that he is sad to hear this and Silva tells him not to be sad because he will be sitting at the side of the Octagon with a fat belly eating popcorn cheering on the fighters.

Wanderlei/Rampage III is on for UFC 92

Yahoo Sports has recently confirmed three huge fights for UFC 92 through Dana White himself. UFC 92 is set to take place on December 27th from the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas and with this recent announcement promises to be on of the most stacked cards to date.

As promised Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will defend his UFC interim heavyweight championship against Frank Mir in a bout where the winner will face the man left standing in the upcoming Randy Couture/Brock Lesnar matchup to decide once and for all who the true heavyweight champion of the UFC really is.

Forrest Griffin will defend his newly acquired light heavyweight championship against “Sugar” Rashad Evans. These two former TUF champions are both coming off of the biggest wins in their careers and both are looking to prove to the world that their last victory was far from a fluke.

TUF 8 – Episode 3 Re-cap


By Denny “The Mad One” Hodge

The 32 has been trimmed to 16, and those 16 earned their way into the TUF House. The episode starts with some background on some of the fighters, then it’s on to the injury update with one LW and one LHW, and their fractured noses. Both Brian McLaughlin and Karn Grigoryan know that there is a possibility that for now, their UFC dreams may be over. Dana lets both fighters know that the NSAC has decided that they cannot compete, and that they have been placed on 180-day suspensions. As a result both must go home, and they respond with some serious silence and stalling prompting Dana to tell them, “You got to walk out that door, there.”

With that business complete, the replacement fighters are to be named and Light-Heavyweight Kyle Kingsbury is the first to be named. The replacement for the LW’s will be a “mystery” fighter, and the coaches agree that he will be the last pick following the team selections.

The Cole Miller Show episode 1

Cole Miller is one of the UFC’s top lightweight contenders.  He had a beautiful win over BJJ phenom and instructor Jorge Gurgel back In July at UFC 86.  Recently, Cole just came off a knee surgery which most likely helped him find the time during recovery to update and revamp his website, www.colemiller.com.

Cole has also started a new video series called “The Cole Miller Show” which can also be viewed regularly on his site.  What makes this concept unique is that he lives with two other well-known fighters: his brother Micah Miller of WEC fame and the house jester Blake Bowman, one of the stars of TUF 6.   With that crew of personalities, there is no telling what kind of antics we may see. Here is episode 1 of “The Cole Miller Show”:

Photo of Tanner’s campsite a metaphor

by:  Jack Bratcher

If a picture speaks a thousand words, this picture could possibly be looked at as a metaphor for Evan Tanner’s life.  When most people go camping for days at a time you would probably expect to see many more “necessities” at their campsite.  However, the word “necessities” meant something completely different to Evan Tanner than it does to most people.  In that regard, combined with his philosophy on life, Evan Tanner was somewhat of a modern day mystic.

This photograph was published today in the San Diego Union-Tribune.  It is a photo of Evan Tanner’s campsite.  Keep in mind this camp is in the middle of the desert; there are no shade trees, no running water, and over 100-degree heat.  Evan had all that he needed there.  He had his shelter, bedding, a folding chair, and transportation.  Also found were some sunscreen, a highlighter, and a notebook.
