Default The MMAFighting.com Morning Report

Apparently this is a new thing that MMAFighting.com is doing. I figured that rather than creating a brand new thread each time, I'd just post 'em all here.

Morning Report: Cesar Gracie Duels Greg Jackson, Roy Nelson Parties With Coolio


Quote:
Feb 7, 2012 - Saturday is long gone, but the Condit vs. Diaz controversy somehow rages on. The fallout continued in spades yesterday, from Cesar Gracie's belittlement of the judges, to the Condit camp's refusal to sign a rematch. Catch up on all the back-and-forth with today's edition of the Morning Report.



5 MUST-READ STORIES TO START YOUR DAY
Cesar Gracie calls UFC 143 judging a "perfect storm of incompetence." Still fuming from the judging slight, Gracie minced no words during Monday's episode of The MMA Hour.
Greg Jackson: stick-and-move strategy was "no-brainer." Unsurprisingly, Jackson adamantly defended the pro-Condit decision, explaining, "it's not like we reinvented the wheel."
Fabricio Werdum complains Roy Nelson's face hurt his leg. Days later, Werdum is still feeling the effects from "Big Country's" Homer Simpson-style gameplan.
Carlos Condit's camp not interested in Nick Diaz rematch. Despite the war of words, Condit's manager made it clear that the interim champ has absolutely no interest in an instant rematch.
Brandon Vera explains his withdrawal from Thiago Silva rematch. Beset by a backlash from fans, "The Truth" took to Facebook and clarified his abrupt decision.

Well, yes & no: Nate was able to draw Cerrone into a boxing match/brawl because he was able to rile him up & goad him. Jackson learned from that & kept Carlos' head together. There were a few times that Nick's taunts started to get to him, but he'd settle back down & stick to his gameplan.

Morning Report: Nick Diaz's Troubles, Dan Henderson Considers Fight at Heavyweight

Quote:
Feb 10, 2012 - In retrospect, I guess we shouldn't be that surprised that Nick Diaz outkicked his coverage and tested positive for weed during a UFC 143 drug screening. After all, this is the guy that hit a bong in the middle of a Strikeforce conference call.
But still, Hendo might fight at heavyweight if we can find him a good match-up. So it's not all bad.


5 MUST-READ STORIES TO START YOUR DAY
Nick Diaz tests positive for marijuana. Nick Diaz is facing a lengthy suspension after testing positive for marijuana metabolites for the second time.
Diaz's positive drug test not surprising, but still bizarrely disappointing. Like a father that discovered his son's weed hidden under the dresser drawer, Ben Fowlkes isn't angry at Diaz's failed test, justdisappointed.
Dana White 'beyond disappointed' in Nick Diaz. White was unexpectedly measured in his short public statement.
Dan Henderson won't wait for title shot. Now that Jon Jones is tied-up with Rashad Evans, Hendo wants to fight in April or May. More surprisingly, a move up to heavyweight apparently isn't out of the question.
UFC 143 trending near 400,000 pay-per-view buys. Early estimates have the buyrate for last weekend's UFC 143 show far exceeding expectations.
