Outfit looks bad ass!” – Holly Madison — who is perhaps best known as Hugh Hefner’s favorite girlfriend during “The Girls Next Door” — Tweets about her fitting today for a UFC ring card girl get up.

So is the 29-year-old Oregonian just having fun, getting dolled up for a special saunter at UFC 100 or will she somehow be included in the the first-ever Maxim UFC Octagon Girl Search at the fan expo … or all of the above? Can’t wait to get to the bottom of this …

Rogers' Manager: 'Overeem Is Afraid'
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Following Brett Rogers' impressive 22-second knockout of Andrei Arlovski on the June 6 Strikeforce event, many suspected that he would be next in line to fight for the organization's heavyweight title. However, Rogers' trainer/manager, Mike Reilly, told FanHouse Monday that he isn't surprised that Rogers isn't getting the first crack at champion Alistair Overeem. "I don't think Overeem was ever planning on fighting Brett," Reilly said. "I think Overeem is afraid of Brett. He's afraid of a big striker who is going to knock him out. ... I don't think anyone is going to admit that, but I'm not going to shy away from it. He's had two opportunities to fight Brett but he hasn't taken either of him."
