Jason "Mayhem" Miller signs with the UFC.

http://www.mmafighting.com/2011/04/2...igns-with-ufc/

Quote:
The popular middleweight has signed a new multi-fight agreement with the organization, Miller's manager Ryan Parsons confirmed with MMA Fighting.

The 30-year-old Miller (24-7, 1 NC) was able to sign with the UFC due to the fact that his contract with Strikeforce had expired. No word just yet on when his first fight back inside the Octagon will take place.

"Mayhem" had not competed for Strikeforce since last April when he defeated Tim Stout on the undercard of Strikeforce: Nashville. He went on to defeat one of his MMA idols, Kazushi Sakuraba, at DREAM.16 in September, which stands as his last fight to date.

Jon Jones injured, Phil Davis vs Rashad Evans.

http://mmajunkie.com/news/23365/jon-...or-ufc-133.mma

Quote:
With UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones (13-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) injured, UFC officials have now booked a bout between the champ's original opponent, Rashad Evans (15-1-1 MMA, 10-1-1 UFC), and replacement Phil Davis (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC).

Sources today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the new matchup, which takes place at UFC 133. The Canadian Press' Neil Davidson first reported the opponent switch, which was later officially announced by the UFC.

A source told MMAjunkie.com that Jones is facing a lengthy recovery from a torn right-hand ligament suffered in his title win. A timetable for his return wasn't immediately available.

he's very overrated imo, especially how tired he got last match and beaten up as a result. he's one of those guys with a lot of talent but once he burns thru it he's done for, and i get the feeling he's not one of those endurance conditioning freaks, so i don't think he'll improve too much in that respect.

That card lost a lot of its luster, Phil Davis vs. Rashad evans is just not on the same level as Jon Jones vs. Rashad.

Phil Davis and Shad are both strong wrestlers. I see this fight taking place with one guy pinned agains the cage and ther other guy trying to execute a takedown. Shad would win teh striking match. Davis looks lost on the feet at times

Anderson Silva More Interested in Fighting Roy Jones Jr. Than Jon Jones

http://www.mmafighting.com/2011/04/2...es-jr-than-jo/

Jones it way past his prime. SMH Anderson I thought you were better than that. Challenging a washed up boxer.
