And beating Donald Cerrone next month is Las Vegas would certainly be a step in the right direction. "I want the title. And I'm willing to fight whoever I have to fight and willing to prove whatever I have to prove to whoever to get there.

I've fought on canvases like that before. ... I don't know about the other fighters, but I was really struggling because I use a lot of dynamic movement. I really push hard off my feet when I was standing and then I drive a lot off my toes. I think it got a little bit in my head that I slipped a couple times o read news >>

But we'll see. He's a young guy, he's talented, we'll see what he wants to do." -- After Gray Maynard suffered yet another knockout (watch it her read news >>

UFC Fight Night 52 looked to be a quick turnaround for Urijah Faber, but ultimately it may have been too quick. Faber suffered a rib injury midway through his July victory over Alex Caceres, and one month later, a slower than expected recovery ended up being the reason that the former WEC standout had to withdraw from his scheduled September 20th showdown against Masanori Kanehara in Japan.

"Conviction" gets no love from "The Anvil." "I mean right now, I don't think anyone could match up with Ronda. I really don't believe anyone can fight, (or) not even come close to fight Ronda Rousey.
