On a week shortened by holiday, MMA still kept us busy. Let's see who was having a good week, and who wasn't.

Hot -- Forrest Griffin: After being a pioneer for the UFC, Griffin announced he was hanging up his clothes. He did it on his own terms, and will stay with the UFC in some executive role.

Not -- Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz: The one-time UFC champ and his one-time adult actress ex-girlfriend are going through a very messy break-up. For the most part, it has been tabloid fodder that had nothing to do with MMA. But on Thursday, Jameson made allegations that Ortiz did drugs during his MMA career, and posted what she thought were damning pictures. Ortiz denied her allegations, and said he is focused on raising their kids.

Hot -- Miesha Tate: Cat Zingano's misfortune worked out in Tate's favor as Tate took over coaching "The Ultimate Fighter" this week because of an injury to Zingano. Now, it will be Rousey vs. Tate fighting each other both as coaches and in the cage.

Hot -- Latin American UFC fans: Americans who are lucky enough to get Fuel get a crazy amount of MMA programming. Now, fans in most Latin American countries will have access to a 24-hour UFC channel that will launch late this year.

Still taking temperature -- Nick Diaz: He launched his new MMA promotion this week. How will it work out? We'll find out when he has his first event on June 22.
