- Speaking of Frank Mir, the 32-year-old proved something more after his UFC 140 win. That is to say, he is a very very dangerous man. Jonathan Snowden explains: "Whatever was in Mir's heart, this was no run of the mill brutality. Worse than a smile or a smirk, there was no expression at all."

- Stefan Struve spoke to MMA Canada about his upcoming fight with Dave Herman. Said Struve: "He's got KO power, but he's still got to prove that to me."
