@ShaneCarwin What do you think about Rampage (and Cro Cop) possibly being done with their MMA careers? @FlyByKnite Rampage is about as retired as Jay-Z. Crocop needs to engage his opponents or retire.

"The UFC has done a lot for me but I think I have done more for them … this movie role came about that I have been trying to get for over a year & as soon as I found out I was close to getting it, I called Dana right away & asked to push the Memphis fight back just a month or so. I told him what this movie role meant to me. I told him that I used to bond with my father watching the tv show as a kid when my parents where still married & it represents the memories I had with my father when we lived together. My dad became an alcohalic & addicted to drugs & we grew apart. But after my dad got his life back together, I was so proud of my dad & I told him I would always take care of him in the future & make him proud of me. My dad & I are still very big fans of the show & I am basically doing this for the childhood memories I had spending time in front of the tv with my dad. Dana went on the internet & mocked me because of that & I still did nothing. Dana & I finally talked & we made up & then after that he went back on the internet & said some bullshit & he was talking bad about the movie when information is not even supposed to be released & talking about payments which is not even true could really hurt my future acting career, which could very well last longer than my fighting career. I’m not like Randy Couture. My body has been getting so many different injuries that I wont be able to fight until my forties & neither do I want to fight that long. So I feel like my second career could be in jeopardy.. so I’m done fighting. I’ve been getting negative reviews from the dumb ass fans that don’t pay my bills or put my kids though college. So I’m hanging it up. I’m gonna miss all my loyal fans but hopefully they’ll follow me to my new career & I will gain more loyal fans along the way. & all you hater fans out there can kiss my big black hairy ass! & anybody that don’t like what I just said can come try to kick my ass! I still feel the UFC is a great organization and I felt like I was very loyal to them but they didn’t respect my loyalty but I wish the UFC the best. I did a lot of things for them. I wish no bad blood between us but I have kids & a family back in Memphis to provide for & thats all that matters to me!"

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. agreed to pay $5.6 million in back taxes before the Internal Revenue Service was poised to take the money from his purse after his Saturday comeback fight against Juan Manuel Marquez. The IRS sent the Nevada Athletic Commission a levy notice on Sept. 4 ordering Mayweather's unpaid taxes from 2007 to be deducted from his $10 million fight purse, commission executive director Keith Kizer told The Associated Press. Kizer said the IRS backed off one week later, after Mayweather agreed to pay the money. Mayweather won the fight in a unanimous decision.

"Maybe the ones who have said that I’m done are right. Obviously, I can’t break my mental block in the Octagon. Besides, I’ve been training like a spartan for 20 years now — my body is worn out. The years caught up to me, I’ve been worn out…. [Junior dos Santos] won that fight and would have won it by decision. Simply put, he is younger, more hungry, more aggressive. He wanted to win a lot more…. The mat was slippery like glass. I almost fell down trying to do the left high kick. But I’m not looking for an alibi. This was not the performance the public would pay for. I don’t feel the hunger anymore. I started playing it safe, I’m not ready to take risks. I would like to thank everybody that supported me and stood by me and everyone who helped me to prepare for this fight. I’ve been living a military life for 20 years now. Getting up at 6 a.m. and having physically challenging task up to 8 p.m. I want a normal life. I’m entering a cage and thinking about fishing in Privlaka. You can’t win that way. Maybe I should’ve quit after I won the open weight grand prix."

I was watching the Diaz-Malignaggi fight and I had it 115-113 for Diaz because of how much more aggressive he was. It was a close fight. However, don’t expect me to shed many tears for Paulie. A guy who has won 26 fights, only five of which are knockouts, and knowingly going into a situation where he knows he doesn’t have any advantage whatsoever, should have a plan to combat that inequity. If he knows that this is Diaz’s hometown, and he feels the judges are going to be biased for Diaz, then the game plan should have been simple: Remove any influence by the judges by knocking Diaz out. The judges could have been Shane Mosley, Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins for all I care. Had Paulie gone into the fight planning to knock out Diaz instead of boxing him and leaving it up to the judges, the judges wouldn’t have mattered. I understand that Paulie has the power "of a squirt gun" (as you put it, brilliantly by the way) but his plan should not have been to box. His plan should have been to knock out Diaz.

"I have never said I was a fighter. I am a martial artist and that is an important distinction for me. There is a lot of beauty and art in what we do. I respect the ring and I respect my trainers. It is important to respect the art. That’s the reason I am here, because of the art and those who taught me. I will have the advantage physically but BJ has great natural talent and balance. I will go hard and fast though and I am going to push the cardio aspect of the fight. Winning the title would be an honor. But the real challenge for me is BJ and beating a guy with the skills he possesses."
