Though it's a slow week for MMA fights, it's not for MMA news. Check out who made Cagewriter's Hot and Not list;

Hot — Georges St-Pierre: After listening to Nick Diaz, his opponent at UFC 158, talk about how pampered GSP is, the welterweight champion went off. His heat comes from the steam he let off when ripping Diaz on a press conference call.

Not — Alistair Overeem: He was set for a grudge match bout with former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, but injury knocked him out of their late May bout. Now he will have to wait until later this summer to fight.

Hot — Jon Fitch: Two weeks ago, he was given the pink slip by the UFC and was pre-emptively turned down by Bellator. This week, he was signed by the World Series of Fighting and is likely to have a bout in June on NBC Sports Network.

Hot — Chris Weidman: After patiently waiting for months through an injury and Hurricane Sandy, the undefeated New Jersey native is finally getting his shot at Anderson Silva and the middleweight belt. He will fight Silva at UFC 162 this summer.

Not — Mark Hunt: After Overeem was injured, Hunt said on Twitter that he wanted the fight with dos Santos. After UFC president Dana White said Hunt turned down the bout, Hunt took to Twitter to say that he doesn't turn fights down. No matter who is telling the truth, Hunt won't be riding his winning streak into a top-level fight.

Still taking temperature — Fallon Fox: The first openly transgender fighter's license is under review as the commission in Florida reviews her medical records. Fox is post-operative and has lived as a woman since 2006.
