It's been an interesting, Cagereaders. Who had a good week, and who didn't?

Hot -- Tito Ortiz and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson: The reaction to their upcoming fight in Bellator on pay-per-view was mixed. But the reason these two are having a good week is that after a combined 0-6 record in their last three fights, they are suddenly headlining a pay-per-view again. As Brock Lesnar would say, that's turning chicken [expletive] into chicken salad.

Not -- Tim Kennedy: After beating Roger Gracie, Kennedy is just looking for a fight. First, he was supposed to fight Vitor Belfort, but Belfort only wants a championship fight at middleweight or a light heavyweight fight. Now, he's hoping for Wanderlei Silva. Can someone just get this man a fight and improve his week?

Hot -- Michael Chandler: Does David Rickels know what has happened yet? He was steamrolled by Chandler at Wednesday night's Bellator. Chandler is now 12-0, and in desperate need of challenges in Bellator's lightweight division.

Not -- This guy's tattoo: A guy turned Ronda Rousey's Body Issue picture into a tattoo. A TATTOO. There's dedication to being a fan, and then there's this.

Hot -- Nick Diaz: It's his birthday! The man from Stockton turns 30 years old today. Will he stay retired?

Still taking temperature -- The Korean Zombie: Chan Sung Jung will get the chance to take the UFC featherweight belt from Jose Aldo on Saturday at UFC 163. He will have to win over Jose Aldo, who hasn't lost since 2005.
