And then there were nine! Yushin Okami, the No. 6-ranked Middleweight fighter on UFC's roster up until this past weekend, is no longer featured on the promotion's Top 9 Top 10 list (view it here). Okami was recently cut after getting knocked out by Ronaldo Souza earlier this month. UFC President Dana White claimed his role of divisional "gatekeeper" forced his surprise exit, even though "Thunder" compiled a record of 13-5 in the Octagon during a seven-year tenure. With Okami removed from the rankings, Luke Rockhold, Francis Carmont, Costa Philippou and Chael Sonnen are suddenly better than they were yesterday. Meanwhile, Alessio Sakara (6-7-1 in UFC) prepares to battle Magnus Cedenblad at UFC Fight Night 30 later this month. Makes imperfect sense.

While it was initially feared that Rousimar Palhares' recent knee injury that knocked him out of his UFC 150 bout against Yushin Okami would require surgery, it now looks like that won't be the case, according to Tatame. That damn injury bug is annoying but at least it didn't do too much damage this time. Photo: Joe Camporeale/US Presswire

The million dollar man? Octagon legend Royce Gracie confirmed to Sensei SporTV (via Fighters Only) his asking price for a return to the cage at the upcoming UFC 134: "Silva vs. Okami" event in Rio de Janiero, Brazil on Aug. 27. Apparently Gracie wants a "seven figure purse" for a one and done fight on the card. Fat chance. But, he's still asking for a rematch with Matt Hughes in Rio, the same Hughes that is booked to fight Diego Sanchez on Sept. 24 at UFC 135. It's no wonder Dana White has shot down all rumors of Gracie fighting in Brazil.

Heads up, Brazil. UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is reportedly in negotiations with a TV network, potentially Rede TV, to have his own weekly show, according to Graciemag. The program, which would only run up until "The Spider's" scheduled title defense against Yushin Okami at UFC 134: "Rio" on Aug. 27, is apparently a major promotional tool for both Silva and the UFC in advance of the organizations return to Brazil.

Injury? What injury? Two of the baddest men on the planet, BJ Penn and Anderson Silva, both in Toronto for UFC 129, hooked up to get in some training together while waiting for this weekends festivities. "The Prodigy" was recently forced to pull out of a planned bout against Jon Fitch while "The Spider" will take on Yushin Okami later this year in Brazil. Props: Twitter
