Arona has stated he's not fighting.

The only BTT fighter to be representing is Lil Nog.

It was on the BTT website. I'm too lazy to go to Sherdog to dig up the link.

The problem is those are usually a little innacurate up until much nearer the event.

Much like their event posters. really.

I'm just stoked they released the card early. They are learning, I think Pride might be hear to stay now. As much as I love the UFC I think monopolys are bad, especially for the fighters .

There were rumors it was Robbie Lawler. Not exactly sure how credible the source is though.

I think Cung Lee would kick lawler into next week. Probably be a quick fight with them throwing down though. I hope this rumor is true, because I will be looking for wagers if it is.

IMO, Cung Lee made a name for himself in Sansho matches where he faced no real competition... I'm not trying to knock the guy, but beating up on Von Flu doesn't mean much when it comes to proving yourelf as an MMA fighter. I have never seen Lee in a real war... Does he have the chin? Does he have the heart? He sure isn't used to losing, what would happen if he was GnP'd for a round? A lot of questions are yet to be answered, IMO...

I hadn't heard about him fighting Robbie, but I thought there was a rumor going around that he would be Zelg Galesic's first fight in the Pride ring... That would be a great matchup...

Sure would be cool to see a flying sciccor kick >>> heel hook, if he's got it in him though...
