Detailed Recap of Today’s UFC Press Conference with Dana White and Fertitta

56


For those who don’t know there was a press conference held on ufc.com today to talk mainly about the Couture situation. Heres a snippet from mmanews.com

The press conference was held today due to the fact that the UFC management felt Randy Couture made blatant false statements about the UFC and his pay from the company. UFC’s CFO John Mulkey is attending the presser to specifically clear up these false financial situations, and will even be handing out paperwork to the media in attendance with official figures that dispute those that Couture handed out during his press conference last week.

New Top 5 Pound for Pound Rankings

637

Its been a long time since my first P4P list, alot has changed, so here are my new rankings.

5. BJ Penn- Although the Prodigy hasn’t fought in a while he still retains the fifth spot on this list. When I think of an all around P4P fighter, BJ always comes to mind. He just has incredible ability to dominate his opponents and something all great fighters need, the ability to relax when you get in a difficult position. If he wants to do it he could hold more than one belt.

4. Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto- Yamamoto has long been a stable on many P4P rankings. His only loss was due to a cut. Before a decision victory over Bibiano Fernandes in September, Yamamoto had won 7 straight fights by TKO/KO. He is known as a devastating striker, but also has the ability to submit his opponents. As Im writing this I realize I have not posted any of his fights, well look for some soon. Ill try to get the Japanese superfight against Genki Sudo on here soon. “Kid” is someone every MMA fan should get familar with.

3. Anderson Silva- The Spider has completely taken over the UFC middleweight division, in the process of becoming a superstar here in the United States. This guy can do it all and do it all extremely well. With amazing punching power that comes out of nowhere and unbelievable ground skills Silva is on a serious roll. He is fast and accurate with his punches and completely overwelming in the clinch. Silva will indeed dominate the Middleweight division for a long time.

2. Quinton Jackson- Rampage is Rampage again and the only thing that can knock him off is if he has to fight Wanderlei again and can’t figure out how to beat his longtime nemesis. He has rededicated himself and he showed what shape he was in when he beat one of the best fighters in the world, Dan Henderson. Quinton has dynamite in his hands and amazing upper body strength. Ever since coming to the UFC he has improved tremendously in every aspect of the game. Jackson beats out Anderson for the second spot because I believe his competition has been a little tougher than Silva’s. Taking nothing away from Rich Franklin but he’s not Dan Henderson.

1. Fedor Emelianenko- The main reason Fedor remains number one in my eyes is because when you see other fighters interviews and they are asked who they think is number one the answer is always the same. He hasn’t fought since the middle of April, but thats not enough reason for me to bump him down the list. Call me a Fedor nuthugger if you want, but you can’t argue with his skills and track record. The Russian Experiment can out wrestle most guys in the world, out submit most guys and can strike with anyone. His ground and pound is better than anyone and he is probably the smartest fighter that thinks on his feet. His striking is unorthodox but it certainly works for him, and the speed of his punches is astounding for a heavyweight. If anyone can beat him, they have to get past the mystique first, most of his opponents are beaten before they step in the ring. It can’t be comforting for a fighter to look across the ring and see a Emelianenko’s stone cold no worries facial expression.

Just Missed- Georges St. Pierre, Paulo Filho, Randy Couture, Gilbert Melendez, Takanori Gomi, Sean Sherk, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Forrest Griffin, Dan Henderson, Frank Shamrock, Shinya Aoki, Hayato Sakurai.

Ok about the SPOILING crap, the first time was an accident so ive already apologized, it was a mistake. The K-1 videos, I didnt spoil who won or lost, I was just giving people who dont follow K-1 some incentive to watch the fights. Alot of my K-1 posts are ignored, and they shouldn’t be because like last night there are some great fights in the org. I understand why some would be upset and Im sorry for that. In the future any new event will be spoil free. As far as older fights are concerned if you dont wanna know about the fight just scroll down and play the video without reading my thoughts on the fight. I like to talk MMA, read everyones feedback and fill all the requests I can. Thats what I get out of it, sharing thoughts with other people who love the sport, if I just posted videos without saying anything it wouldn’t be fun for me. Anyways enjoy this latest episode of Inside MMA.
