- Antonio “Big Foot” Silva posted posted a photo of him coming out of surgery on instagram over the weekend. His last fight was a classic against Mark Hunt at the end of last year. Get well soon!

- Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre talked about several things to the Ottawa Sun:

Taking some time off to relax and feel better: “I needed to take some time off to relax , to feel better and to have fun to do it again if I ever wanted to come back. When you do something for a long time , you have a lot of pressure. People don’t realize how much pressure I have. It’s a lot of expectations.”

Spending the holidays with his family: “I spent Christmas time and New Year’s with my family, That’s something I haven’t done for a long time . This is the first time I’ve really had nothing on my schedule. It was perfect. It was fun. It’s the first time I felt so good. I’m 32 years old and this is the first time I have Christmas with my family. I spent some time, but I never really had free time , total free time like I did. It was time for me to do it. I’m very happy I did it and I don’t regret any of it.”

There being a chance he will return to MMA: “Because I’m an obsessive guy, I give myself a challenge which automatically will mean me working on it to obtain it. So right now I take a break. I don’t give myself any preference, you know? There is a chance I will come back. Christmas was incredible and now for 2014 we’ll see what’s going to happen. I have some projects in mind. I can’t talk about it, unfortunately.”
