Did anyone catch on to the fact that Arona will be facing Marvin Eastman on Sept 12th in Brazil? Am I just behind the power curve on this one?

This is a great card. Hopefully sherdog or somebody will stream it.

Yeah, the main card is surprisingly stacked! I haven't seen Stiebling fight since the old PRIDE days when he had his rivalry with Brazilian fighters. I guess he is continuing that trend.

Pretty sure Rizzo vs Monson is off due to Monsons passport being taken away from legal issues...hopefully they find a suitable replacement to face Rizzo...not sure who is available and not under contract though.

Maybe Valintjin Overeem, or James Thompson or something....

It's a shame. Monson looks like he is trying to redeem as many of his losses as possible. I was interested to see who he went after next.

LOL, and poor Eastman, always a stepping stone for the transitioning or returning big fighters. Gotta give the guy credit though.

Yeah I keep thinking Monson still has the passport since he beat Sergei. Hopefully he'll be back fighting soon

and yes Eastman is the epitome of a gatekeeper

Amazingly enough I found this on accident through Wikipedia....had to look into it to verify but it is suposedly going down as such. Didn't know about the Monson issue, great ideas for a replacement! Would love to see either one. I will repost this in a minute once I find a real good link.

Monson's attorney has already filed motions to enable him to travel for his out-of-country fights as he's also scheduled to fight in Russia and Japan early next year.
