Antonio Mendes has told TATAME that he will be back in action in January 2009.

The Europe Top Team athlete, who fought seven times in 2007 and won all of those bouts, will fight on January 17th in Dublin, Ireland, and might face another Brazilian fighter Andre Gusmao. Rich Franklin is also rumoured to be fighting on this card.


This is the first i've heard of a UK event in 2009 and with 'Super Bowl Weekend' being billed as UFC 93 maybe this could be a 'Fight Night' ?


EDIT: With 'Fights for the Troops' and the TUF8 Finale both being held in December, january is probably too soon to have another 'Fight Night' so i'm thinking this will be UFC 93 and 'GSP Vs Penn' will become UFC 94


Any thoughts ?

It's BS.

Not too sure where that rumour came from, but he's fine and the fight is still on

Someone called the Cotoure gym pretending to be Lorenzo and said the fight was off. That's the short version.

Your first post on the forums and you just had to an arse

Northern Ireland is part of the UK and since there's already been an event there i just assumed (maybe shouldn't have) that the UFC would be going back there.
