(fiveouncesofpain.com)
A rumored welterweight matchup between Dan Hardy and Rory Markham that would place at UFC 95 at the O2 Arena in London on Feb. 17 has gained a lot of traction on various Internet news outlets over the course of the last week. Despite the high level of speculation surrounding the proposed matchup, FiveOuncesOfPain.com learned Friday evening that the fight is not yet official. A source close to Markham confirmed to Five Ounces of Pain that a bout with Hardy was indeed offered and that Markham signed the bout agreement. However, the source added that they were informed by the UFC that the bout wouldn’t be official until Hardy signed and that an executed agreement for the fight has not been returned. Markham’s camp is not entirely certain that Hardy will sign the contract.

While the heads of the NSAC and New Jersey Athletic Commission have differeing views, recent research says that, on a regular basis, David is going to beat Goliath more often than the other way around.

Brian Bowles: A Little Southern Charm mixed with Plenty of Southern Harm
(wec.tv)
Good article on a sometimes overlooked fighter... "Brian Bowles doesn’t have a nickname, but figures he would adopt a moniker if somebody “came up with a cool one.” No one has done so and the lack of a nickname actually meshes nicely with Bowles’ laid-back personality and substance-over-style approach to the fight game. He is a former police officer who started his MMA apprenticeship at the HardCore Gym in Athens, Ga. Hailed as a quick learner, Bowles outworks just about everybody in the training room, keeps charging and grinding even when he’s being treated like a punching bag, and if you stick a microphone in his face and ask him to speak publicly, he is a man of precious few words. He has skyrocketed up the rankings and is widely considered one of the top fighters in the world in his weight class."

Mike Van Arsdale switches camps, eyes return to competition
(mmajunkie.com)
If things go according to plan, former UFC champion Randy Couture won't be the only well-conditioned wrestler in his forties defying conventional logic. UFC and IVC veteran Mike Van Arsdale (8-5), at 43 years old, recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he is eying a comeback after two-and-a-half years away from fighting. "You're getting older and stuff, and you kind of want to let it go," Van Arsdale said. "But I didn't let it go because I always thought, 'I've got to set the record straight here. I lost some fights I shouldn't have lost.'"

New Interview With GSP
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
Brock Lesnar versus Randy Couture was the “biggest fight ever” according to UFC President Dana White. It’s now old news, failing to become the biggest PPV extravaganza of all time, but still clearly going to end 2008 as the best box office fight of the year. In 2009, Zuffa looks to draw big numbers early, pitting B.J. Penn against Georges St. Pierre in a battle of champions at UFC 94 on January 31, 2009.

The channel is part of the ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG group one of Europe’s biggest media conglomerates. Pro Sieben realise heavily on foreign programming especially content form the US.
