The return of Kalib Starnes – PRO MMA exclusive

by:  Jack Bratcher

The Ultimate Fighter season 3 and UFC veteran, Kalib Starnes will be making his return to the ring on November 15th when he faces Kala “Kolohe” Hose at Destiny MMA’s:  Pier Fighter 1 in Hawaii.

We last saw Kalib at UFC 83 where he fought Nate Quarry to a memorable three round decision.  Only, it was memorable for certain reasons most people would not consider beneficial.

I was very interested to see how Kalib had been dealing with life outside the UFC and all of the negative press.

It’s always easy for a person to keep focused on the positive things when life is sunshine and roses.

TUF 8 – Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir – Episode 9 Re-Cap

By Denny “The Mad One” Hodge

It’s time for the Light Heavyweights this week with Krzysztof Soszynski facing Kyle Kingsbury.

The real KO action this week is seen before the actual fight in the Ocatagon, and takes place at the TUF house.

Nover’s performance from last week cemented his place as a real threat to walk away as the lightweight Ultimate Fighter this season.

Kryzstof is shown with his thumb being worked on and it looks pretty bad with Sos thinking that it may possibly be fractured.  Mir brings in his guy Don House to evaluate the extent of the injury and to give Sos some pointers on protecting his hand.  House concludes that the injury will be fine for Krzysztof to continue in the competition.

Pro MMA Radio interview – Dan Henderson

UFC middleweight and light heavyweight contender Dan Henderson stopped by Pro MMA Radio on Monday night to speak with host, Larry Pepe.

Here are some highlights from their discussion:

Henderson fought a very tough three round decision victory against Rousimar Palhares at UFC 88 in September.

He caught Palhares with some big shots and the guy would just not go away; the toughness of the Brazilian’s chin was a surprise to Henderson.

Henderson was able to clarify, his height is really 5’11” and not 6’1″ which most stats show.

Werdum denies departure from UFC

Fabrico Werdum’s loss to Junior dos Santos in UFC 90 seems to not only have affected his dream to fight for the UFC’s Heavyweight Title but has also ended his future in the organization.

Reports from the U.S. press state that the UFC wanted to renegotiate the contract of the Jiu-Jitsu and the ADCC champion, but the parties failed to reach an agreement and that negotiations ended with the UFC deciding to terminate Werdum’s contract.

“I’m surprised by the news. My sister is my manager and she’s the one that deals with the UFC and she always contacted me first before making any decision.

From what I know the UFC have not contacted her.
