Nate Diaz and Clay Guida bouts to co-headline UFC Fight Night 15
(mmajunkie.com)
September's UFC Fight Night 15 event will feature co-main events with past winners of "The Ultimate Fighter." A fight between season-six winner Mac Danzig (18-4-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and opponent Clay Guida (23-9 MMA, 3-3 UFC) will be followed by the night's final bout between season-five winner Nate Diaz (9-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) and Josh Neer (24-6-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC). The Sept. 17 event takes place at the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Neb., and the main card airs on Spike TV. The UFC recently announced the night's five televised bouts. Spike TV Vice President David Schwarz today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that rather than a single main event, the two bouts will be billed as co-main events. (Spike TV often features notable "TUF" alumni in UFC Fight Night and The Ultimate Fighter Finale events.) Much like the other Spike TV events this year, UFC Fight Night 15's fight card features some solid match-ups. UFC.com recently released the following televised main card (all previously reported here at MMAjunkie.com): Nate Diaz vs. Josh Neer Mac Danzig vs. Clay Guida Houston Alexander vs. Eric Schafer Alan Belcher vs. Ed Herman Kyle Bradley vs. Joe Lauzon

DRUG TEST NETS TIGER WHITE 9 MONTH SUSPENSION
(mmaweekly.com)
At a hearing before the Nevada State Athletic Commission last week, Vernon “Tiger” White was officially suspended stemming from a positive drug test result for the banned diuretic Hydrochlorothiazide. The drug test was following a May 31 kickboxing bout for Xtreme Fighting Association. White received a nine month suspension, was fined his entire $2,000 win bonus, and the fight was changed from a victory for him to a no contest result. "I'm not going to try to talk myself out of trouble, it was a stupid mistake,” said White during the hearing. Due to the positive test result and impending suspension, White was removed from a fight against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira that was to take place on Saturday’s Affliction “Banned” event at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Fellow UFC veteran Edwin Dewees, who has signed a multi-fight contract with Affliction, subsequently replaced him. Dewees’ first action for Affliction will be against Nogueira on Saturday night.

Despite having a mystique like no other fighter, being universally considered the #1 fighter ever, and being dominant beyond belief, Fedor Emelianenko has never really been a box office draw despite all the talent and he reamins mysterious behind his fame.

New Barnett Article (Decent read)
New Josh Barnett write about leading to Affliction. Pretty good read.. http://www.mmatraining.com/featured/josh-barnett-ready-to-greet-rizzo-and-american-fans-again/ My only issue is - they say he will probably be Fedor's toughest test if they ever do fight.. Tougher than Randy? Tougher than Arlovski? Not sure I agree on that one..

Brandon Vera: Dan Henderson, Wanderlei Silva and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou turned down UFC Fight Night 14 offers
(mmamania.com)
“They offered me Dan Henderson, Wanderlei Silva, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Lyoto Machida and then Reese Andy. I turned down Machida. He’s not someone you take on short notice. You gotta get ready for Machida. The other fighters turned down the other fights so that’s how we came to Reese.” Heavyweight-turned light heavyweight, Brandon Vera, reveals a personal behind the scenes take on what went down in the scramble to put together UFC Fight Night 14: “Silva vs. Irvin” on short notice to counter the Affliction “Banned” show that same evening (July 19). It appears that there were a lot of names and potential match ups swirling; however, not everyone was comfortable competing with little time to prepare. James Irvin — who takes on Anderson Silva in the main event — recently told MMAmania.com that four fighters turned down offers to take on “Spider” before he was approached.

Frankie Edgar talks cutting weight, staying at 155 lbs.
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
There has been plenty of talk since Frankie Edgar’s loss to Gray Maynard at UFC Fight Night 13 that Edgar may be too small for 155 lbs. When we interviewed Edgar after that bout he said that he intended on staying at 155 and was looking to actually put on some weight to make him a little bit stronger and give him more size. Edgar has been blogging for USA Today leading up to his fight against Hermes Franca at UFC 87 on August 9 and he’s sticking to that plan according to his latest entry:

Baroni Wins WW Debut, Gets Headbutted by A**hole
(cagepotato.com)
Phil Baroni’s first match as a welterweight was a resounding success, as the New York Badass dominated Scott Jansen to a first-round knockout victory at Cage Rage 27 last night in London. Unexpectedly, Baroni quickly got the fight to the ground, scoring a smooth double-leg takedown shortly after the bell and effortlessly controlling Jansen from the top. Sick sick knockout one of the best of the year.

Dale Hartt Is Ready To Entertain You
(mmajunkie.com)
Is Dale Hartt (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) the future of MMA? Hartt will not bring an impressive amateur wrestling resume to his bout with Shannon Gugerty at UFC Fight Night 14 this Saturday night. There will be no discussion of Hartt's Brazilian jiu-jitsu world titles -- no talk of any highlight-reel knockouts in Muay-Thai. Yet the 29-year-old Hartt told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he has been focused on MMA since its beginning. "I watched the first UFC, and ever since then all I've wanted to do is mixed martial arts," Hartt said. "I trained in Florida before I started training in Bangor, (Maine), with Marcus (Davis). I did Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and I did Muay-Thai. I wrestled a little bit. But everything I did, I did because I wanted to fight MMA. I never wanted to be a jiu-jitsu guy. I never wanted to be a Muay-Thai guy. I always wanted to be an MMA guy."
