Dana White: Chuck Liddell-like Junior dos Santos hasn't dealt with anyone like Alistair Overeem

By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

DosSantosJunior_180_13.jpg
UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos has run roughshod through the heavyweight ranks, winning all eight of his fights inside of the Octagon. That dominant run has been highly impressive, but his lack of legitimate adversity inside of the cage has UFC President Dana White wondering how he'll respond when he runs up against it this May against Alistair Overeem.

"For me, the question is how is Dos Santos going to deal with the kicks and the knees and the elbows?" White said recently (comments transcribed by MMAWeekly.com). "Since he's been in the UFC, I've never seen him have to deal with that. It's stuff that he's going to have to deal with from Alistair Overeem."

It's not that White doesn't believe in his Heavyweight Champ. It's just that he sees some similarities between dos Santos and his former client and longtime friend Chuck Liddell, and so he's not sure what he'll see from dos Santos against a fighter like Overeem.

"He's fought a pretty one-dimensional fight," White said. "He's fought very Chuck Liddell like in that he's great at defending the takedown, he drops bombs, he throws heavy punches, but he's never dealt with anybody who's going to throw kicks and knees and work in the clinch the way that Alistair Overeem does."

"I'm real curious to see how Junior Dos Santos is planning on dealing with that."

Penick's Analysis: It's a good point that White raises here. Dos Santos has been so fantastic in his run in the UFC, and he hasn't really faced much push back from any of his opponents. Now, is that because of him overwhelming those opponents and just being that good? Maybe. Overeem's likely to test that, and show him some things he hasn't yet had to deal with. None of this is to suggest that dos Santos can't handle it, but it does leave some questions into their May showdown, and it will be interesting to see how the fight actually does play out.

Chael Sonnen vows to stomp "coward" Anderson Silva in rematch at UFC 147

By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

SonnenChael_GG180_12.jpg
"I'm not fighting you in Brazil, I'm not fighting you in Chicago, I'm not fighting you in Florida. I'm fighting you in the Octagon. And when you get in there and I get in there, I'm gonna stomp you this time the same as I did last time. You can complain about your rib. I'm sure your rib did hurt. Your rib is inside of a coward. That's the problem your rib's got. It's got the same problem your hands and feet have - they're attached to you, dummy! I'm gonna be attached to you too, for 25 minutes or until you give up.?

-Chael Sonne goes after Anderson Silva in a recent video statement ahead of their recently announced UFC 147 meeting in Brazil (transcribed by BJPenn.com).

Penick's Analysis: Even though Sonnen says the fight's not signed, it is going to happen, and he's going to continue delivering comments like this to the UFC Middleweight Champion. Sonnen's gotten a handle on delivering these pro-wrestling-style promos, and this is another one aimed at getting a reaction. Whether it prompts a response from Silva is a different story, but a lot of Sonnen's fans will definitely eat it up. And from a promo standpoint, it's a pretty good one, so it would be a deserved reaction.

Evans On Jones: Style-wise, I'm All Wrong For Him

By <a href="mailto:howie@mmanews.com">Chris Howie</a> <Br>
MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer<Br><Br>

The weeks are ticking away leading up to the UFC Light Heavyweight showdown between heated rivals Rashad Evans and Champion Jon Jones, and to keep fans up on training and such, Evans has been blogging via <a href=http://sports.yahoo.com/mma/news;_ylt=AhPxTehuhBjUqoHl9jkQssA9Eo14?slug=ys-rashad_evans_jon_jones_UFC_145_blog_032212>Yahoo Sports</a> and this week discussed why beating Jones is more important than winning the title as well as why he feels he's a bad style match up for the seemingly unbeatable Jones:<br><br>

"In one month, on April 21 in Atlanta, I'm getting my title back but, to me, beating Jon Jones up and proving I am the better man and better fighter is even more important than waking up the next day as a two-time UFC champion.<br><br>

For someone who says he doesn't talk a lot, Jon talks a hell of a lot. If there's any validity to what he's saying, if there's any truth to him being the "Muhammad Ali of MMA," then he's got to deal with me. It's not a fight he is taking lightly, I'm sure. Jon always trains hard, and I know he will be training extra hard for this fight against me.<br><br>

I heard a stat about Jon that he's never been taken down in the UFC. But I've taken him down plenty, and I know he can't fight off his back. I think my takedowns will be a key to this fight. I know Jon can take me down, too - he's done it - but I've taken down every single fighter I've ever wanted to get down, and I took Jon down time and time again in the gym. I think style-wise I am all wrong for him."<br><br>

Karo Parisyan Talks Panic Attacks, Career Struggles

By <a href="mailto:howie@mmanews.com">Chris Howie</a> <Br>
MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer<Br><Br>

Former top welterweight contender Karo Parisyan still feels he has much more to prove in the world of MMA and discussed some of the things that lead to him being cut by the UFC with <a href=http://www.mmafighting.com/2012/3/25/2901210/karo-parisyan-opens-up-on-career-struggles-painkillers-and-why-hes>MMAFighting.com</a> this week:<Br><Br>

"I still have much more to prove, much more to give. It?s like, I got to the top. I was the number one contender. I did a lot of stuff in the sport, but nothing where I could say, yeah, I could retire today. ... One my reasons -- and you?re going to say this is a stupid reason, Karo, but to me it?s a big reason -- but one of the reasons I want to come back is to shut people up. To shut a lot of fricking people up."<Br><Br>


Parisyan also opened up about issues with pain killers and panic attacks that ultimately lead to his release from the UFC:<Br><Br>

"For the record, I was never addicted to pain meds. I abused pain medications without knowing. When it hurt me, it was too late already. I had done too much damage to myself, mentally and physically."<Br><Br>

"Anxiety will be there. Anxiety you can control. The physical panic attack is the one that hits and brings you to your knees. And whoever?s had a panic attack, I want them to, for a second, realize that when they were having a panic attack, the worst one, when they thought they were going to die, I had to walk out in front of 20,000 people and fight. When my friends were pushing me, [saying] ?Get out there, Karo. Thiago Alves is waiting in the cage. You?ve got to go fight.? I did that."<br><br>

Muhammed ?King Mo? Lawal Issues Apology to NSAC Official

Embattled light heavyweight mixed martial artist Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal issued a statement on the recent comments he made in regards to Nevada State Athletic Commission official Pat Lundvall which saw his release from the Strikeforce promotion. Though he sticks by his guns that Lundvall's line of questioning was inappropriate, Lawal is apologetic for crossing the line in his response.

Strikeforce's Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal suspended nine months, fined $39K for failed steroid test

By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

King_Mo_Lawal_180.jpg
Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal appeared in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Tuesday to answer for a failed steroid test from his bout with Lorenz Larkin in Strikeforce in January, and as expected he was handed an official suspension by the Commission.

Lawal tested positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone, which Lawal's camp traced back to an over the counter supplement he had been taking. Lawal claimed the supplement was purchased several years ago, as the supplement had since been taken off of shelves because of the presence of this anabolic agent.

At Tuesday's hearing, the NSAC officially overturned his victory over Larkin to a "No Contest", suspended him for nine months, fined him 30% of his purse as well as taking back his win bonus.

The nine month suspension is retroactive to the date of the fight, January 7, so Lawal will be eligible for return as of September of this year. The fine amounted to a total of $39,000 - $15,000 from his win bonus, and $24,000 from the percentage fine from his purse.

Penick's Analysis: Lawal accepted his punishment, and his suspension is actually less than was probably expected, but the NSAC absolutely doesn't play around with fines. They fined Thiago Silva a significant amount last January, around 40% of his purse, and did the same for Karo Parisyan a few years back as well. That's a significant amount of money that Lawal has now lost because of this failed test, and should be a sign to fighters that you need to know what you're putting in your body. If you get popped for something like this the monetary punishment is worse than anything else.

?Super Fight League? premieres with theme song that will stick in your head

India jumped into the world of MMA with the start of Super Fight League, a new promotion that debuted in Mumbai over the weekend. James Thompson submitted Bob Sapp at 1:52 because Sapp sustained a leg injury.

The real star of the show was SFL's theme song, which should shoot to the top of the charts immediately. It somehow combines the guitar riffs of an 80s movie montage song with the rapping skill of Snow. Basically, it's amazing.

"Boom, pow, punch kick WOW!" will be playing in your head for the rest of the day. You're welcome.

Thanks, Bloody Elbow.

Gus Johnson Signs With Fox but Stays With Showtime

by Michael David SmithLast week it was revealed that Gus Johnson's contract with CBS had expired, and on Tuesday morning it was reported that Johnson has accepted a job at Fox. But that doesn't mean he's done as the voice of mixed martial arts on Showtime, the sister network of CBS.

Sources told MMAFighting.com that Johnson's contract with CBS was for basketball and football, and that his deal to call fights (both MMA and boxing) for Showtime was a separate contract. That contract is still in effect, and Johnson will call Saturday night's Andre Ward-Arthur Abraham boxing match for Showtime. Although Showtime hasn't yet announced who will broadcast its next MMA show (a June 18 Strikeforce card), Johnson is expected to call that event as well.

Theoretically, it's even possible that Johnson could be back on the CBS airwaves if CBS ever aired another Strikeforce fight: When Johnson called EliteXC and Strikeforce fights on CBS in the past, that was part of his Showtime deal. It's probably a long shot that we'd see Johnson back on CBS, however.

With five fights left on contract, UFC 148's Cung Le taking it one bout at a time

If you haven't yet noticed, Cung Le has other things he can do.

No fewer than three movies featuring Le are scheduled for release this year. In one of them, "The Man with the Iron Fists," he co-stars with Hollywood heavyweights Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu.

Le is 39 years old and has been fighting in one way or another since his tweens. He has another way to make a living in which it's far less likely he'll have his nose rearranged. So why keep doing it?

Even before that, Chael Sonnen put the issue on the radar when he said he used testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to combat hypogonadism following a suspension by the California State Athletic Commission.

Despite the growing focus on the dangers for TRT, UFC president Dana White said his company is doing all it can to help curb misuse.

Hockey Fight of the Day: Zenon Konopka vs. Brad Staubitz

One of the increasingly familiar faces around this feature is Brad Staubitz, the Montreal Canadiens’ 27-year old wing. This time around he’s decided to take on the Ottawa Senators’ Zenon Konopka, also no stranger to the penalty box, and as you might imagine their brawl was one worth checking out. Tweet

Manny Pacquiao Dominates Shane Mosley

by Michael David SmithManny Pacquiao defeated Shane Mosley via a unanimous decision in Las Vegas.Manny Pacquiao showed once again why he's the biggest attraction in boxing, dominating Shane Mosley on Saturday night to win a one-sided unanimous decision in the biggest fight of the year.

Although Mosley came out fighting hard with a good first round, it was all Pacquiao from there on. Pacquiao knocked Mosley down in the third and dominated the fight throughout. Technically Mosley knocked Pacquiao down in the 10th round, but in reality Pacquiao fell when Mosley tripped him, and the referee made a mistake in calling it a knockdown. In reality, Mosley never had Pacquiao in any trouble, at any point in the fight.

All three judges awarded it to Pacquiao by lopsided scores: 119-108, 120-108 and 120-107. According to the pay-per-view broadcast, Pacquiao landed exactly 100 more punches than Mosley did (182 to 82) and threw more than twice as many punches (552 to 260).

Four Fights Added To UFC On FX 4 On 6/22 In New Jersey

<B>By MATT MOLGAARD<BR>
MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer</B><BR><BR>

UFC on FX 4 is shaping up to be quite the card.<BR><BR>

In addition to a featured bout between dangerous lightweight?s Gray Maynard (10-1-1) and Clay Guida (29-12), a quartet of new fights have been made official for the event. Rick Story (13-5) will meet Rich Attonito (10-5); Dan Miller (13-6) will tangle with Ricardo Funch (8-3); Matt Riddle (6-3) meets Luis Ramos (19-7) and Brian Ebersole (49-14-1) will throw down with T.J. Waldburger (15-6). All four bouts will be contested at welterweight.<BR><BR>

Story has picked up six victories inside the octagon, while tasting defeat on three separate occasions. He?s been bested by Martin Kampmann and Charlie Brenneman in his last two fights. Attonito in contrast hasn?t experienced anywhere near the same level of success, as he?s picked up just three wins versus two defeats fighting for the promotion. He was stopped in his last trip to the octagon by Jake Hecht early in the second frame.<BR><BR>

Dan Miller, who will be making his welterweight debut hasn?t enjoyed much success under the Zuffa banner. His UFC record stands at 5-5. He?s dropped his last two consecutive fights; one to Rousimar Palhares, the other to Nate Marquardt. Funch however, hasn?t exactly ignited much debate himself, and if he has, it?s only for the sole fact that he?s somehow still fighting for the UFC after dropping three promotional fights. In his most recent outing at UFC 142 he was stopped by Mike Pyle.<BR><BR>

The Ultimate Fighter season seven, veteran Matt Riddle makes his way back to the cage just months after taking away a split decision nod over Henry Martinez at UFC 143. His promotional record matches his overall record, as he?s never competed outside of the UFC. Luis Ramos will be looking for his first octagon win; he was disposed of handily in his debut by fellow Brazilian, Erick Silva at UFC 134.<BR><BR>

Brian Ebersole will look to make it three straight inside the UFC welterweight ranks; he?s already toppled Chris Lytle, Dennis Hallman and Claude Patrick. T.J. Waldburger has enjoyed quite a bit of promotional success himself, piecing together a 3-1 octagon tally. His lone defeat came at the hands of the surging Johny Hendricks.<BR><BR>

UFC on FX 4 airs on June 22nd. The action emanates from the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.<BR><BR>

King Mo Was Ready To Die Due To Staph Infection

By <a href="mailto:howie@mmanews.com">Chris Howie</a> <Br>
MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer<Br><Br>

King Mo Lawal has been battling a severe staph infection that has left him in pretty rough shape and he talked about the ordeal this week with Sports Illustrated.<Br><Br>

Lawal, who has been getting better in recent weeks, gave an in-depth look into the physical and mental damage staph can wreck on the body:<Br><Br>

"I had this moment where I was like, man, I can see my hip bone. I was ripped still. I had an eight-pack. But there's my hip bone. I looked at my leg, and it looked like those zombies from The Walking Dead. That's how it looks right now. I'm getting to where I can kind of strengthen it, doing leg lifts and stuff. But I looked in the mirror and was like, man, look at me. I didn't know it was that bad until then."<Br><br>

"I got to the point where I was like, [expletive] it. I just felt like, hey, I'm going to quit taking this medicine, and if I die then I die. I'm tired of this stuff."<br><br>


"I feel like I looked death in the face, and I survived. I'm talking death of my career, and death in life. I faced that. It was tough. It really did make me appreciate my life, just my everyday life. I used to think, not that I hated working out, but that I hated feeling tired. Now, I miss feeling tired. I miss getting punched, kicked, kneed, elbowed. I miss all that."<Br><Br>

Weekend Warriors: Bellator?s lightweight final four emerges and Lawrence advances on TUF

Welcome to another edition of weekend warriors, your rundown of what happened while you were watching the state of Kentucky break out in a war over a round, orange ball.

Bellator got to its lightweight final four. Watch the recap video above of Lloyd Woodard's fantastic win over Patricky Freire. (Seriously. It's worth your seven minutes.) Rick Hawn, an Olympic judo player, showed off striking skills with a TKO halfway through the first round. Brent Weedman advanced to the semifinals with a second-round submission of J.J. Ambrose. Thiago Michel rounds out the field after a split decision win over Rene Nazare.

TUF Awkwardness

This week's episode of "The Ultimate Fighter" started with last week's awkward fight pick. Since Dominick Cruz's team won the first fight, he had the next fight pick. When given the chance, he picked Justin Lawrence, the no. 1 pick from his own team. But he didn't name an opponent. Instead, Cruz asked Urijah Faber who he wanted to face Lawrence.

Put on the spot, Faber didn't have an answer, and no one from the team raised his hand to fight. Yikes. Cruz finally picked Cristiano Marcello, the experienced BJJ specialist who trained at Chute Boxe in Brazil.

Team Faber had good reason to be concerned, as Lawrence stopped Marcello in the second round. A push kick to the abdomen in the first round knocked Marcello down, but Marcello was effective in pushing the fight. His success was short-lived. Midway through the the second round, Lawrence threw a big left and ended the fight.

The second win for Team Cruz gave them another fight pick. Myles Jury from Team Cruz will take on Al Iaquinta from Team Faber.

Badr Hari Easily Beats Overmatched Gregory Tony

by Michael David Smith

Badr Hari, the bad boy of kickboxing who hadn't fought in a year, finally returned to the ring on Saturday and easily beat an overmatched and uninterested opponent, the French boxer Gregory Tony at an It's Showtime event in France.

Hari won by first-round TKO, knocking Tony down three times without ever really hitting him all that hard. Tony looked like he didn't really want to be in the ring with Hari, and the matchup of Hari and Tony seemed like a generally bad idea: Tony isn't in Hari's class as a kickboxer, and Tony was also fighting just a week after he had two boxing matches on the same day, winning one and losing the other. A fight like this wouldn't get sanctioned by an American state athletic commission.

UFC tried to rent U2's concert structure for UFC 147, expecting 'between 60K and 80K' fans

LAS VEGAS - The UFC's first ever soccer-stadium show is going to require some interesting engineering and some creative solutions.

In fact, as the UFC began its planning, the company turned to a group that's quite used to putting on big events in big venues: Irish rock-and-roll legends U2.

UFC president Dana White today revealed the company tried to rent U2's massive concert staging centerpiece, nicknamed "The Claw." However, the UFC will instead develop a custom design. Once complete, White will have a better idea of seating capacity, but he currently anticipates the building will be scaled somewhere between 60,000 and 80,000 fans.
