The Huntington Beach Businessman
Love him or hate him, there is no denying the impact “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” has on the continuing evolution of mixed martial arts. In fact, the mere mention of his name is usually enough to start a heated debate between UFC enthusiasts. Is he one of the world’s top light-heavyweights destined to recapture gold? Or is he a B-level fighter who’s mastered the art of self-promotion? There is no right or wrong answer, just opinions that are as diverse as his fan base.

Report: Joe Stevenson could fight for title with a win at UFC 74 (and some help)
With a win over Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 74: “Respect” on August 25, season two welterweight winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Joe Stevenson, could find himself fighting BJ Penn for the vacant 155-pound title later this year, according to a recent Yahoo!Sports article.
Bonnar vs. Schafer
Light heavyweights Stephan Bonnar (10-4) and Eric Schafer (7-2-2) will clash at UFC 77 on October 20, according to a recent MySpace blog post from “Red.” I feel Bonnar has better standup and Schafer might be better on the ground. I think it will be a chess match and end up a decision for Bonnar.

The Continuing Education of Kendall Grove
Let’s face it, I don’t care how good you are or how experienced, no 185-pound fighter really wants to fight a 6 foot 6 middleweight if he has any choice in the matter. Add in a rapidly improving game and an aggression bordering on recklessness, and you would think that a guy like Kendall Grove is on nobody’s wish list.

Body of UFC Fighter Gilbert Aldana recovered in Arizona

Drew McFedries Possibly Off UFC 77
There is staph going around at the Miletich school in Bettendorf, IA. Among those infected are UFC fighters Tim Sylvia, Drew McFedries and Spencer Fisher. Fisher has already had to pull out of his 9/19 Spike TV main event match with Din Thomas. UFC has just confirmed Kenny Florian as the replacement. McFedries is scheduled against Marvin Eastman on the 10/20 PPV show in Cincinnati and he's up in the air. Man, this thing might take down everyone there. Hopefully it won't get to Matt Hughes. I know there are a few people who won't complain about Sylvia getting it though.
