Notes Soares also revealed that Anderson would be willing to fight at a catchweight of 177 lbs, in the middle of their respective weight classes. Maybe not immediately, but a Silva/GSP superfight could happen if Silva's camp can convince GSP to step up in weight class. - MagWar

Notes 35-year-old Belfort's physique looked shredded during the Bisping fight, which fueled the rumors and speculation, but Dana set the story straight. Belfort did not fail his PED test. - MagWar

Notes Leading up to the Evans/Nogueira fight, White said either Evans or Weidman would get the next MW title shot. Evans' loss made the decision clear. - MagWar

Feb 03, 2013 - Pettis Asks for Title Shot vs. Aldo

Shortly after UFC FW (145 lb) champ Jose Aldo defeated Frankie Edgar, #1 LW (155 lb) contender Anthony Pettis told UFC President Dana White that he wanted to drop to FW to fight for Aldo's title.
www.mixedmartialarts.com/news/435711/Anthony-Pettis-wants-to-drop-for-title-shot-vs-Aldo/ 

Notes With a LW title shot awaiting him, it's surprising that Pettis wants to drop weight to challenge for the FW championship. Especially since Pettis beat LW champ Benson Henderson in 2010. - MagWar

Jan 31, 2013 - Cyborg Challenges Rousey to 140 lb Catchweight Fight

Responding to criticism from UFC President Dana White, former Strikeforce featherweight-W (145 lb) champion, Cris "Cyborg" Santos challenged UFC bantamweight-W (135 lb) champ Ronda Rousey to a catchweight fight at 140 lb.

Notes Cyborg's camp thinks it would be too much for her to cut to 135, but Rousey and the UFC don't seem to want to budge on that stance. Hopefully some resolution can be found because this is the women's MMA fight everyone wants to see. - MagWar

Notes Taping an entire season of The Ultimate Fighter together gives Sonnen a lot of time to try to infiltrate the young champ's head. We'll see if he's successful doing so. - MagWar
