It looks like UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem has taken the necessary steps to work his way back into the favor of UFC President Dana White after drawing the outspoken executive’s ire in relation to a failed drug test earlier this year. Overeem was scheduled to take on champion Junior dos Santos but ended up withdrawing from the fight based on testosterone use stemming from an anti-inflammatory mixture his doctor prescribed him

The final hump for UFC middleweights Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen to get over arrived in the form of tonight’s UFC 148 weigh-ins where both men made weight for their main event meeting before squaring off for what was as predicted another intense staredown. This past Tuesday, divisional champ Silva forced Sonnen backward after going chest-to-chest and had to be held back by UFC President Dana White in order to ensure things didn’t get out of hand. Things, however, got physical this time around with Silva delivering a shoulder-bump when the two went toe-to-toe after each hitting their weight-related marks.

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

The first two times former light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin met the bouts resulted in a pair of Split Decisions with each man doing damage but neither turning in a dominant performance. This time around Ortiz feels things will play out differently given the additional motivation he’ll be entering the Octagon with at UFC 148 . Ortiz has stated the match-up will mark his final fight, capping off a fifteen-year career as one of the organization’s biggest stars

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 .
On the weekend of July 7 the UFC Hall of Fame will welcome in one of the more deserving fighters to ever grace the inside of the Octagon. Tito Ortiz , also known as “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy,” will take his rightful place next to other legends including long-time adversary Chuck Liddell, Matt Hughes, Royce Gracie and another of Ortiz’s bitter rivals, Ken Shamrock

In order to help amp up the hype for this weekend’s headlining tilt at UFC 148 between middleweight king Anderson Silva and talented court jester Chael Sonnen the organization has released a clip documenting some of the stats stemming from their original encounter in 2010. As is no doubt seared into the minds of fans, Silva absorbed a ton of damage over four rounds before sinking in a fight-ending Triangle Choke in the final minutes of the fifth frame. Among the interesting numbers mentioned in the video are Silva spending twice the time on his back in the bout as he did in eleven Octagon appearances prior to it as well as Sonnen landing more significant strikes in the first round than Silva had ever eaten in the duration of any of his other UFC fights.
