Quinton Jackson’s ascent a matter of divine intervention
(mmajunkie.com)
LAS VEGAS – There are, as they say, two sides to every story. In this case, there's Juanito Ibarra's story of how he connected with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and became the UFC light heavyweight champion's trainer. Ibarra said the men had known each other for years from connections in the fight game and that they had gotten together after Ibarra telephoned Jackson and the two talked, mostly about their religious faith, for two-and-a-half hours. "It was a very powerful, memorable conversation," said Ibarra, who is convinced Jackson will be at his career peak on Saturday when he defends his title at UFC 86 at Mandalay Bay against Forrest Griffin. "I get (goose) bumps thinking about it."

Koscheck wouldn’t mind fighting Penn
(sports.yahoo.com)
LAS VEGAS – UFC president Dana White is almost resigned to the fact that his lightweight champion, B.J. Penn, is going to leave the division to chase the welterweight belt. White has long urged Penn to resist the tendency to jump from the division and concentrate on cleaning out the 155-pound division. After Penn’s recent one-sided victories over Joe “Daddy” Stevenson and Sean Sherk, though, White doesn’t have a challenger on the horizon who can keep Penn from abandoning the division.

UFC 86 PREVIEW: JACKSON VS GRIFFIN FIGHT-BY-FIGHT
(mmaweekly.com)
UFC Light Heavyweight Championship Bout: Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Forrest Griffin UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson makes his second title defense, this time against Forrest Griffin, the original winner of The Ultimate Fighter. Neither fighter has seen action since September of last year with Jackson winning a decision over Dan Henderson at UFC 75 and Griffin submitting Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 76. Fans have gotten to know both fighters over the past several months because of their stints as coaches on the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter. Although through most of the season they were amiable to each other, there were moments where both fighters were eager to fight one another. Jackson is known for his strong boxing and solid wrestling abilities, while Griffin is known for his scrappiness and his ability to adapt to any situation in a fight. They have had several months to prepare for each other and should know their opponent’s weaknesses like the backs of their hands. Jackson will want to keep the fight on the feet and use his boxing to tag Griffin with a power shot that will put him on his back. If the fight isn’t going the way that Jackson wants it, don’t be surprised to see him take it to the ground and pound on Griffin. Griffin will need to keep the distance with kicks and not get into Jackson’s range for an exchange because Jackson has a technique and power advantage over Griffin on the feet. On the ground, he needs to keep position and not take too many risks with submission attempts because Jackson has excellent submission defense. It’s hard to think that the fight will go to the distance, as both fighters will be looking for the finish. For Jackson, he will want to finish it on the feet with a punching combination. For Griffin, he’ll need to catch Jackson off guard and capitalize on a mistake made by the champion. However the fight ends up, it’s been months in the making and after Saturday night we’ll have a conclusion.

Next ShoXC event scheduled for Aug. 15; will feature Hamman vs. Suganuma II
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
EliteXC’s next ShoXC event has been scheduled for August 15 at the Table Mountain Casino in Friant, Calif., located just outside of Fresno. The news was confirmed to FiveOuncesOfPain.com earlier this afternoon by EliteXC Vice President Jared Shaw. According to Shaw, already scheduled for the card is a rematch between light heavyweight fighters Poai Suganuma and Jared Hamman. The two fought previously at the Table Mountain Casino on April 5. Hamman suffered his first loss as a pro after being rocked by a flying knee delivered by Suganuma. The fight was stopped amidst a chorus of boos, with many Hamman supporters feeling that the fight was halted early. In addition to Suganuma vs. Hamman II, Shaw indicated that striking specialist Cyrille Diabate will make his EliteXC debut in a light heavyweight encounter against ShoXC veteran Jaime Fletcher.

Carlos Condit prepares for Hiromitsu Miura
(mmamania.com)
It’s the beginning of the second week since I returned from Afghanistan. Training is going well — no injuries to report other than some minor stuff, but that’s normal. Even though this training camp has not been ideal because of so much traveling, I’m in great shape and feeling pretty sharp. I’ve been waking up earlier than usual. I’m a bit of a night owl and tend to sleep fairly late in the day, but I guess I’m still on Afghan time. It’s actually been really good for training, giving me time to run in the mountains before it gets too hot. Yesterday I went way up there! Farther than I’ve ever gone. I thoroughly enjoy running in the New Mexico foothills. Well, maybe not thoroughly … the air is very thin and the terrain is crazy steep and rocky. Actually, running up there is a bitch!
