FanHouse confirmed Tuesday with Bitetti Combat the complete card and with the exception of the recent exit of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, the lineup has remained intact.

Gray Maynard Focused on Roger Huerta, Not Lightweight Title
(mma.fanhouse.com)
If Gray Maynard wanted to, he could make a pretty good case that he deserves to be the No. 1 contender for the UFC lightweight title. After breaking into the UFC on the fifth season of The Ultimate Fighter and knocking himself out in a bizarre no contest on that season's Finale, Maynard has gone 5-0, and he's dominated all five opponents. But as Maynard prepares to fight Roger Huerta on the September 16 Ultimate Fight Night card, he says he won't lobby for a shot at the lightweight championship, even if he beats Huerta. Instead, Maynard says in an interview with FanHouse that he's putting all his energy into fighting Huerta, and that as long as he keeps winning, he's sure a title shot will come.

Middleweight Nate Quarry relying on "old-man strength" for win at UFC Fight Night 19
(mmajunkie.com)
When middleweight slugger Nate Quarry (11-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) steps into the cage against Tim Credeur (12-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on the main card of "UFC Fight Night 19: Diaz vs. Guillard" on Sept. 16, there will be a bit of an old-school feel to the contest. But despite an apparent striking advantage on the feet and a potential jiu-jitsu deficiency, Quarry said he won't be relying on any particular gameplan to earn a victory.

"TUF 10" competitor Scott Junk took different path to UFC, now he's on long road back
(mmajunkie.com)
Scott Junk (6-2-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) doesn't exactly fit the stereotype for the house on "The Ultimate Fighter 10." "I'm simple – just a normal everyday working guy," Junk said. "These guys are ex-football players and young guys who are spoiled who don't have jobs. They're complaining about things that I thought were luxuries." That's because Junk doesn't have the traditional mixed-martial-arts pedigree. A Hawaiian who fell into MMA after an All-American Division II college football career and who later gained his full-time job in sewage line construction, Junk is also unique because of his UFC background.

The Case for Chuck Liddell Appearing on "Dancing With the Stars"
(bloodyelbow.com)
The stumbling block often issued against this idea -- namely, that the marriage between a dance competition and MMA is not natural and therefore meaningless -- should be discounted. DWTS is good precisely because it doesn’t force Liddell to adhere to outdated conceptions of fight sport participants. Those who fear fighting or are unaccustomed to viewing it as sport ultimately believe fighters are static characters who can do nothing but their occupation. Liddell is being given an opportunity unlike what he’s received in B-movies and HBO’s “Entourage”: the chance to demonstrate what else he can do and maybe reveal a little human personality along the way.

UFC Newcomer Jay Silva Still Doesn't Believe His Dream Has Come True
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Two years ago, Jay Silva was just a nightclub bouncer in New York City who got into a lot of fights and liked watching MMA on television. Then a chance encounter with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson at UFC 78 in Newark, N.J., led to him moving to California to begin his MMA career. Next week, he'll make his Octagon debut when he steps in on short notice to face CB Dollaway at UFC Night 19 in Oklahoma City. Dollaway's original opponent, Dan Miller, was forced to withdraw from the bout after suffering an undisclosed infection.

Stay tuned: UFC's new TV deal in U.K. will be monitored by U.S. television execs
(mmajunkie.com)
At first blush, the UFC's newly announced deal with a broadcast television network in the United Kingdom would seem to have no impact upon fans in the United States. It would be understandable if U.S. fans were to say, "Who cares?" about the UFC's announcement that it reached a programming deal with FIVE, a broadcast network that is the U.K.'s equivalent of CBS. But have no doubt that network television executives in the U.S. will be paying very close attention to how well the UFC's offerings perform in the U.K.

Dos Santos Plans to Outbox Cro Cop at UFC 103
(mmaweekly.com)
"It’s been a quick trip up the ladder for UFC heavyweight Junior Dos Santos. He was a virtual unknown in America when he took on ground wizard Fabricio Werdum at UFC 90. One right uppercut later, Dos Santos was on the map, flooring Werdum in 81 seconds. UFC president Dana White said betting lines changed days before the fight when people caught a glimpse of Dos Santos hitting pads. The 25-year-old native of Salvador, Brazil, breezed through Stefan Struve in 54 seconds at UFC 95, and was scheduled for further seasoning against Justin McCully at UFC 102. Then, in July, one call changed everything."

‘Cro Cop’ Doesn’t Think Fedor is Afraid
(sherdog.com)
"Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic has no clue why Fedor Emelianenko signed with Strikeforce and decided against testing himself inside the UFC. Like much of the mixed martial arts community, the Russian’s decision left him scratching his head. “I like Fedor as a fighter,” Filipovic said during a pre-fight conference call for UFC 103 on Tuesday. “As a man, I don’t want to insult Fedor, but I don’t understand his attitude. I really don’t understand why he doesn’t want to enter the UFC."

Ed Soares: Anderson Silva Didn't Get Elbow Surgery
(bloodyelbow.com)
I spoke to Ed Soares, Silva's manager, and contrary to published reports, Silva has not had surgery on his elbow and is not in any way incapable of fighting in November if he's offered a fight. Soares said he hasn't spoken to Silva about fighting Couture yet, and stressed that such a fight has never been discussed with the UFC. But he did say, "Anderson wants to fight the biggest and the best fighters out there and Randy Couture falls into that category. After Anderson saw the way he fought Rodrigo Nogueira, he said he became an even bigger Randy Couture fan."

Dan Hardy plans to make UFC welterweights uncomfortable on Nov. 14.
(mmamania.com)
“Kim will want to take me down with his judo and bash me up on the ground, but every time he gets close he will eat an elbow or knee in the face. I don’t want a decision, I guarantee a knockout in this one. I plan to put a beating on this guy that is so nasty and so one-sided it will be uncomfortable viewing for all the other welterweights in the UFC. I am going to beat him up for a while and then I will catch him with something that really hurts him — then he’ll go to sleep.”

Kimbo Slice Has Low Hurdle to Clear for Big Reward on The Ultimate Fighter 10
(bloodyelbow.com)
It's a cruel hard world out there and the reality is that Kimbo Slice is good for business. Dana White has shrewdly put himself in a no lose position by booking Kimbo on The Ultimate Fighter. At a minimum he will get blockbuster ratings for the early episodes, the longer they can keep him from being exposed, the better. Anyone want to bet that Kimbo won't fight until the third or fourth episode of the show? And if Kimbo manages to score a win, especially a convincing KTFO win, the Kimbo hype train will begin to choo choo down the tracks.

Evans-Jackson Postponed Until Early 2010
(sherdog.com)
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s big break has broken up a headlining bout against Rashad Evans at UFC 107. Jackson and Evans, rival coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter 10” debuting Sept. 16 on Spike TV, will no longer face off in a culminating bout on Dec. 12 in Memphis, Tenn., where Jackson hails from. Evans was notified Saturday that his headlining light heavyweight bout with Jackson will be postponed until early 2010, as Jackson begins shooting a lead role in the feature film remake of “The A-Team” in Vancouver, British Columbia. The 31-year-old Jackson will reprise the role of “B.A. Baracus,” made famous by iconic personality Mr. T in the 1980s. Numerous outlets, including U.K-based “The Sun,” have reported on the jeopardized bout for the last few weeks, and UFC President Dana White even voiced his disdain for Jackson’s moonlighting aspirations at UFC 102 in late August.
