Lots of matchmaking news this week, starting with the blockbuster of Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin. At UFC 102, Keith Jardine will face Thiago Silva, and Demian Maia and Nate Marquardt will meet up.

In circus fight news, former baseball player Jose Canseco is going to fight giant kickboxer, Hong Man Choi.

Fedor Emelianenko submitted Shinya Aoki in their grappling match that proved, once and for all, size does matter.

Ben Fowlkes looks at the phenomenon known as "Octagon Jitters."

After you've voted on our poll, head over to Spike and rate the best UFC fights.

Wait, I need to stop laughing before I can write this. "Entrepeneur" magazine profiled Affliction bigwig, Tom Atencio. Remember Affliction, they of the ugly shirts and two whole cards?

At UFC 98, Dan Miller will fight Chael Sonnen, not Ed Herman, and not Yushin Okami, Miller's original opponent. Okami's stretch of bad luck has continued, with a knee injury keeping him out of this fight.

Apparently, UFC undisputed has a glitch where the ref does not stop a fight, and it gets pretty ugly.

As we await the state of New York's vote to legalize MMA, take a look at the bill. Some heavy taxes are factored in.

If you were the UFC matchmaker, what fights would you arrange? And would you sing "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" from "Fiddler on the Roof" at regular intervals?

Kim Couture has pulled out of her May 15 fight with Miesha Tate, and the reports behind it may make you want to take a shower afterwards.

Matt Hughes and Matt Serra are fighting at UFC 98. Do you care?

Don't forget about Sengoku Eighth Battle tonight, which starts at 3 a.m. ET, Saturday. Thanks for reading Cagewriter this week, and have a good weekend!
