McKee has not lost in seven years or fifteen fights, but has had trouble getting attention from the bigs on account of his penchant for grinding out decisions. Now's his shot, no dates or opponent were announced.

UFC Fight Night 22 Q&A With Chael Sonnen


ht:heavy.com

What'd he say if GSP wanted to fight him:
"'GSP, do you have a hankering for pain? GSP, did you lose a bet with God? GSP, bring your $3,000 suit, bring your $3 date and get the three-cent tan knocked off your socialist back.' If you see GSP, give him that message for me."

I’ve accomplished more in MMA than 95% of the other fighters have - Sean Sherk


From a Sherdog radio interview with Sean Sherk:

Coming back after a long layoff, it seems like some people have written you off. You’re a big underdog in this fight (2-to-1). In the last 7 1/2 years, you have three losses — all to UFC champions (Georges St. Pierre, BJ Penn, and Frankie Edgar.) Do you feel you’re getting a raw deal from the media and some of the fans?
“To be honest with you, I don’t ever go online. I don’t read any press. I don’t read any interviews. I don’t listen to what the fans say, it really doesn’t matter to me, you know. I’ve been the underdog. I’m actually surprised that I am the underdog. I’ve accomplished more than 95% of the fighters in the world have accomplished so it kind of surprises me that I would be considered an underdog. But, uh… you know, whatever. That’s great, you know. I’ve been dealing with adversity and stuff like that my entire career so I guess this wouldn’t be any different.”

Sean Sherk is a tough guy with a long list of accomplishments, and he'll be able to add losing to Evan Dunham @ 119 to that list on September 25th. Sherk's just not the same caliber of athlete and as time goes by he's gonna find this happening more and more. Sherk is still relevant, just not relevant to the title picture, Evan Dunham is.

BREAKING: Matt Hughes vs BJ Penn III rumored for UFC 123 Showdown in Motown?


Matt Hughes vs BJ Penn III, oh yah! one of the best rivalries in MMA history may be setting its self up for a third and final showdown.
cagepotatoe has learned through a source close to the situation that discussions are underway between Matt Hughes,  BJ Penn and the UFC to set up a rubbermatch between the pair at UFC 123 on  November 20.
The event, which is scheduled for The Palace of Auburn Hills in the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills, Michigan will feature a main card match-up between former UFC light heavyweight champions Lyoto Machida and Quinton Jackson.
We first learned of the possible match-up last week, and although we were unable to confirm with Hughes or Penn camps as of time of writing, both men have since confirmed that they could possibly compete in November, so it seems like the tip was legit and that the bout is in fact a plausibility.

Wladimir Klitschko Stops Samuel Peter in 10

Wladimir Klitschko put it on the Nigerian Nightmare for 9 rounds, before unleashing what looked to be about a 17 punch combo. A combo that may have lacked technique, but was full of bad intentions and most importantly ended in a spectacular finish.
