- Rumors have been rampant regarding WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar making a possible return to the UFC when his WWE contract expires. His most recent MMA opponent Alistair Overeem doesn't think that will happen.
"I don't think Brock Lesnar is coming back for a number of reasons. One of them is that he'll get his a** kicked, and he doesn't like that. So I think he's going to stay right where he is, in WWE," Overeem told MMA Fighting.
Following his victory over Lesnar, Overeem failed an athletic commission issued drug test and was suspended.
- Chinzo Machida, brother of former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida has been signed by Bellator MMA. The 37 year old Brazilian has a 3-2 professional record.
- Tonight's UFC on Fox 13 weigh ins caused heavy drama as outspoken Lightweight Nate Diaz badly missed the lightweight mark. Diaz weighed in at 160.6 pounds, and the fight with Rafael Dos Anjos will go on as a catchweight bout.
