“The Axe Murder” Wanderlei Silva takes some time off from one of his training clinics in Toronto to talk about some of his status and his hopes to fight in Toronto next. Silva is hoping to face Chris Leben at UFC 129 noting that “He’s a really good opponent. His style is like my style, he like to fight. He’s not afraid to go toe-to-toe.”

When it came to talking about Chale Sonnen, the two have been trading a few verbal jabs, Silva noted that he “Killed him” the only time they trained together. “I trained with him one time at Xtreme Couture and I killed him there. I think he is a good opponent for me. I think its fun, no? Because sometimes I talk, we talk, its making the fight more interesting.”

The first UFC title fight of 2011 is just eleven days away, which means it’s time to drag out some stats and see who holds the advantages in the Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard rematch — on paper, at least. As we all know, anything can happen in the cage. Seriously. This one could end in a unanimous decision, it could end in a split decision, a majority decision…you just never know.

BIGGEST CAREER WIN
Edgar: Defended his lightweight title in a 50-45 x 3 shutout against BJ Penn at UFC 118.
Maynard: Routed Kenny Florian the same night to win the #1 lightweight contender spot.
Advantage: Edgar

MOST PAINFUL LOSS
Edgar: His UFC Fight Night 13 decision loss against, you guessed it, Gray Maynard. It’s still the only loss on Edgar’s record.
Maynard: He’s never lost in professional competition, though he was submitted by Nate Diaz on TUF 5 (a loss he avenged later at UFC Fight Night 20) and accidentally knocked himself out in a no-contest against Rob Emerson.
Advantage: Maynard

UFC FINISHING RATIO
Edgar: 22% (2 stoppage wins in 9 fights)
Maynard: 11% (1 stoppage win in 9 fights)
Advantage: Edgar

For many of the competitors in MMA’s heavyweight division, making weight
requires much less focus on diet than it does for those fighters who
compete in lighter divisions.

Sengoku’s Dave “Pee Wee” Herman, who usually hovers
around the 245-pound mark, said his only concern is making sure he keeps
his weight high enough between fights.

“When I don’t have a fight, I generally lose weight,” Herman told
MMAjunkie.com Radio. “Usually I lose weight
because I’m drinking too much. I get really drunk and I forget to eat.”
