I guess it's just a New Mexico rumor. A sad rumor too cause this fight looks like a good one.

I was looking forward to this fight more than just about any matchup happening in the near future. We should try not to throw fights up on the site until they have been officially confirmed by the UFC or there is concrete evidence that a contract has been signed.

UFC are total slackers when it comes to putting the fights on their own site. Besides wrong information still gives you something to talk about.

Oliver Copp, who covers UFC and does commentary on the German UFC DVD releases (as I recall) spoke with UFC officials in the past hour or two, and they told him they have not heard of this fight being canceled. However, Oliver pointed out that this does not mean that the fight is canceled, but it does indicate that, at least on the UFC end of things, the fight was/is scheduled.

I would add that I was hoping Trigg was talking to Ryuta Sakurai instead of Hayato.

Sakarai has been denying this fight ever since the rumor got out.
