Ariel Helwani got 30 minutes alone with CM Punk at the UFC on Fox 2 press conference, and I am jealous. He also got a very good interview with UFC president Dana White to discuss the event on MMA Fighting, as well as to address Chael Sonnen’s championship belt

From Bleacher Report: Will the Real Chael Sonnen Please Stand Up: Inside the Contender’s Training Camp

“Bisping breaks easily. I think he’s mentally weak. Watch how he fought Dan Henderson. I think he was totally intimidated. And I think he’s going to be intimidated by Chael too… Chael is such a hard worker and he has such a fast pace. Bisping is much more lackadaisical. He likes to throw a jab, throw a kick, keep his distance. He’s not going to be able to keep up the pace Chael forces. Whether on the ground or standing.”

MMA Mania has an exclusive with Phil Davis: “It’s not so much adapting my style, it’s more like looking at what’s typical in his style and developing a gameplan around my strengths and not so much changing what I do for someone else. That’s just not feasible. Put it more like this, it’s more like rearranging the order in which I do things and not so much what I do.”

Lowkick took a trip to the Golden Glory gym for a ton of info on what is happening there post-Overeem: “We are stronger than ever,” declared de Jong. “Obviously, we are very disappointed Alistair Overeem has left the team, but Alistair Overeem is not Golden Glory. Our team is much bigger than that.”

Speaking of that, Alistair Overeem Addresses Gloden Glory Lawsuit … Sort of… on the 5th Round
