Xande Ribeiro – Rolling Reflections – BJJ Weekly Issue #110
UFC featherweight Chad Mendes will enter his clash tonight against Cody McKenzie with mixed emotions. On one hand the 11-1 Mendes is part of an epic event featuring the retirement of legendary light heavyweight Tito Ortiz in addition to the much-anticipated rematch between Anderson Silva-Chael Sonnen
I’m back again to share my thoughts and experiences and blog for Five Ounces of Pain leading into my fight next Saturday night against Mizuto Hirota at Strikeforce in Portland. I got to go to India for the first time in April for my brother Ryan’s fight. India was awesome. I’m all about travel and I think that’s one thing MMA has provided me with that I would have otherwise not gotten the chance to do is travel the world. India was just another piece of that. It was much different than what I expected. I expected it to be like China, which is really urban. When you’re in the city, you are in the city you know? It’s 100 miles per hour and tall building everywhere. India was different. The houses weren’t as modern as you’d expect; at least in the part of India we were in (Chandigarh) but it was an amazing experience. Everybody pretty much spoke English, so you could communicate with them openly. I got to try new things, especially food-wise. I’ll try anything once. Curry’s hard for me though. I’m not a big fan of curry, and pretty much everything was curried out there. That was tough to get used to, but like I said, I’ll try anything once! There’s no point in going somewhere and not experiencing something to the fullest
Call it unbiased analysis or the wishes of a man seeking a rematch with an opponent who outpointed him in controversial fashion, but when it comes to the headlining tilt between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen at UFC 148 , UFC middleweight Michael Bisping sees the challenger coming out on top. Bisping, who battled Sonnen in January and lost a decision many felt he deserved the nod in, recently weighed in on the title-fight scheduled for Saturday night where he broke down his belief that Sonnen is destined to become divisional champion. “As well all know, styles make fights, and Chael Sonnen’s style as a fighter is a bad recipe for Anderson Silva,” began Bisping on this week’s episode of UFC Tonight .

Middleweight Patrick Cote was confident in the likelihood of being re-signed by the UFC after being released by the organization in late 2010 and subsequently stringing together wins a quartet of consecutive clashes. However, rather than worry about protecting his spot on the roster, the 32-year old Cote is excited to have an opportunity to make his comeback on such a grand stage and against such a worthwhile adversary. The 16-7 Cote faces Cung Le on Saturday evening at UFC 148 .
There has never been any question regarding the talent that Melvin Guillard possesses.
The trash-talking between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and silver-tongued scrapper Chael Sonnen has died down some during the final build towards their headlining bout at UFC 148 . However, each man will have a chance to get some parting shots in later today when the two talented 185ers join Tito Ortiz , Forrest Griffin , and UFC President Dana White on a conference call promoting the July 7 show. The rivalry between Sonnen-Silva dates back to the hype for a 2010 fight where a continuous stream of smack from Sonnen amped things up to a fever pitch prior to their meeting.

UFC 148 Real Time Conference Call Highlights
Don’t call it a comeback! After a lull in the action, I am back with a breakdown for tonight’s UFC 147 card. Not to say there hasn’t been plenty of MMA action to hold us over this weekend, including Roger Huerta having his head soccer-kicked off in Malaysia, but alas, work-related responsibilities have left me little time to enlighten you with my nonsense.
