-Coming off the news of Glover Teixeira becoming the number one contender, light heavyweight champion Jon 'Bones' Jones took to Twitter to give his Tex evaluation,

"I think he's a lot like Rampage just with better grappling. I don't mind people thinking I'm going to lose just come at me with something logical. Speed kills #champ2013 #champion2014."


But that means nothing if Bones doesn't get passed Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 pay-per-view (PPV), scheduled for Sept. 21 in Toronto, Canada.

-After being stuck on the show for so long Ronda Rousey finally reveals her true feelings towards TUF,

"I think it was very good for the women's division, and I think it definitely needed to happen, but you couldn't pay me $10 million to do it again. How could people possibly know who you are from a couple of clips of a video that people are seeing out of context? That's no way for people to get to know you, so I'm just preparing for people to get the worst idea of who I am."

-For those wondering, yes there will be women featured in the newest UFC game.
