12-fight UFC veteran Sam Sicilia latest to Signal multi-fight Bellator contract
Good ! Dropping a unanimous decision to promotional newcomer Gavin Tucker at UFC Fight Night 105 back in October, Sicilia fell to some three-fight losing skid in the UFC and received his pink slip from the promotion. I like that he’s found a new house using Bellator, and hopefully an equally good or better cash back. Win or lose, the Washington native always shows up to battle and seems for the finish. Congratulations to Sammy Dubs for his new contract, and best of luck on his new chapter.
Frank Mir agrees to deal with Bellator MMA
Nice! The UFC did the ideal thing and published Mir out of his contract, which enabled Bellator to sweep him up. My guess is that they promised him a matchup from Fedor Emalianenko, which made him pick Bellator over rival promotions. I like this move by Mir and anticipate seeing him inside the Bellator cage. The Fedor matchup would surely be an interesting one.

Dillashaw: Mighty Mouse has been’consolation prize’
TJ Dillashaw is finally set to confront UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt at UFC 217 in nyc on November 4th, and the most important reason this title fight is presently taking place is because UFC flyweight champion Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson refused to defend his title against Dillashaw when Garbrandt was forced out of the UFC 209 competition because of injury. The Duane Ludwig-trained fighter understands that Johnson was not confident in himself to take the challenge. Talking to MMA Junkie Radio, Dillashaw explained that the Gabrandt fight is what he wanted all along and the Johnson matchup was just a backup plan. He knows that’s not a good fight for him and wouldn’t take it,” Dillashaw explained. “He is real worried about this record he needs to break. Go ahead and let him do this, I figure.”
White: Ferguson, Lee to struggle for interim lightweight name Alright, now we’re talking! Early popular consensus is that Ferguson will handily defeat Lee, but I’m not so convinced. Lee has been very impressive as of late, and I enjoy seeing his expansion within the Octagon. That is a matchup I am excited about visiting, and win or lose, I hope Lee does not suffer any injuries so he’ll make a fast turnaround for December’s UFC 218 in his native Detroit, that will be two weeks following the Ferguson bout.

Diego Sanchez returns to welterweight, meets Matt Brown at UFC Fight Night 120
No, Diego, Nooooo!!!!! Say it isn’t so! Just call it quits, my dude. Hang them up gloves. It’s time. You don’t need to be jumping back around 170 pounds when you’re lately analyzing the waters at 145. Do not stick around for the cash, person, the brain damage won’t be worth it.
