The interview


PC: I know you guys were eyeballing a fight with Shogun, but his knee surgery will prevent that fight from happening. Will you still like to get the Wanderlei fight?

JH: Looks like the Wanderlei fight is going to happen.

PC: Ok, is it still going to be in December?

JH: December, yeah!

I called it after ufc 76 despite them saying he had to win to get it!

Makes alot of sense and has - in a funny sort of way - got the importance back into the fight, it will be a big fight cos 3 losses in a row will somewhat ruin 1 fighters career, if it isnt for a unification between them both as ufc + pride champions then this is the next best thing IMHO

UFC 79 looks like the sickest card ever so far

Kongo VS Big Nog
Serra VS Hughes
Wand VS Liddell

BJ VS Joe Daddy could be added to this card if Sherk fails his appeal

I am thinking i have to go to this

Kongo VS Big Nog



The Nog vs Kongo fight is questionable. Some sites have reported that this fight is off while others still list it in their rumors section. The original news came from a Nog interview I believe though, so who even knows

I think this is a big mistake for Liddell to take this fight......Chuck just hasnt shown the hunger lately and i know Wanderlei is going to come to punish whomever he fights next......

The UFC is classic for doing this and smart too. Whenever both fighters come off of a loss they match them up since they know they will fight hard. The Bonnar / Griffin rematch didnt happen till both of them came off losses.

Now with Wandy and Chuck both losing their last two fights they are going to come out looking to KO the other. I think this PPV should have been called Knockout.

Either way we get to hear Mike Goldberg say "This is the one we have waited our entire lives for."

same here.. i was almost tempted to look up some past articles to quote myself. There was no way they couldnt let this fight happen. Both fighters are getting old, both are legends, both comming off two losses, winner gets a huge win, loser rethinks his career. Not only is it sooooo easy to promote, this will probably be the last guaranteed chance that these fighters meet in the octagon without being on a rascal.

With that said, nog/kongo wont happen until january and sherk has less than a month until his appeal is rejected. I'm pretty sure we're gonna see stevenson/penn at 79.

This may be the greatest news of the year so far in MMA.

This could also be billed as 1 of the 2 remaining fights (the other being Randy vs Fedor) that will finally end all the useless UFC vs. Pride debate. More so this fight though I think. Both of these guys have pretty much been the face of their respective organizations for a good while now.

CANT WAIT!!!!!! Go Wandy!!!!!

Prediction: Wanderlei by KO in the 1st!
