Happy Friday, Cagereaders. Let's take a look at who has had a good week and who hasn't.

Hot -- Joe Dirt, apparently: UFC president Dana White was hanging out with actor David Spade and UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey on Thursday night. White is a big fan of "Meet Joe Dirt" and Spade, and he will not hear otherwise.

Not -- UFC 163: The Brazilian event headlined by Jose Aldo's championship bout with Chan Sung Jung was hit with injury again. Clint Hester, from the latest season of "The Ultimate Fighter," pulled out of his bout with Cezar Ferreira because of a rib injury. Phil Harris is out because of a broken orbital bone. Robert Drysdale also had to pull out because of a staph infection. This is the same card Anthony Pettis had to pull out of. Speaking of ...

Hot -- Anthony Pettis: He wanted a title shot against Benson Henderson. Because of T.J. Grant's injury, Pettis is getting that title shot. Not only will he fight for the title, he will do it in his hometown of Milwaukee.

Hot -- Fighter bonuses: When some fighters complained about their pay, UFC president Dana White threatened to take fight night bonuses off the table. This week, he pulled back on the threat.

Still taking temperature -- Cagereaders: This is a rare weekend. There are no UFC, Bellator, World Series of Fighting or Invicta bouts this weekend. It's the summer. Go outside and enjoy it. If your part of the world is being hit by a heat wave, drink water and stay safe. We'll have plenty to talk about next week with UFC on Fox 8.
