This week’s MMA Link Club featured stories
Five Ounces of Pain: Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans express excitement, humility in anticipation of UFC 133
You’d be humble, too, if you crashed your Rolls and needed a win bonus coming up here shortly.
“You’ve got to understand, I did the Long Beach Grand Prix and I crashed four times. I was hitting walls. …On my honeymoon in my first marriage I got hit by a bus doing 30, and I fought and defended my world title against Yuki Kondo literally four months later. Stuff like that doesn’t hurt me. I think what hurts is just the repetition of training.”
Double E Pictures announced on Wednesday that they had optioned the life rights to the former UFC middleweight champion and hired David Gardner, whose film credits include The Cleaner and The Guardian, to write a script about Franklin’s career. The name of the film will be entitled “American Fighter.”
Seconds later, the two enter into an exchange that saw “Dangerous Dan” land that right hook that we fans and a few of his opponents — ahem, Bisping — know oh so well. The punch froze Silva. It seemed like he just stood there for the second it took a left hook to crash into his jaw. “The Axe Murderer” immediately collapsed onto the mat and the fight was over.

Bleacher Report: Dan Henderson will knock out Fedor
If Rampage Jackson, one of the greatest American Light Heavyweights in MMA besides Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, and Tito Ortiz, was unsuccessful in knocking Dan Henderson out, and if Anderson Silva could not knock out Dan Henderson, then what chance does Fedor have of knocking Henderson out?
I just want to fight the best guys. I don’t look back, I only look forward. I know the fight with Jacare was close, it was controversial. It was a close fight, but I don’t care, I just want to fight the best. I think Robbie’s the next best guy, if I can beat him; I want to move on to the next guy. I don’t know if UFC guys will be coming over, me going over there, or me fighting the Strikeforce champion I don’t care. I just want to fight the best.

MMA Convert (Jim Genia): Fedor vs. Henderson Strikeforce event preview
Fear not for the heavyweight legend, though; given that Fedor’s career has been spent crushing men much bigger, he should have no problem getting Henderson down and smooshing him.
