Jesse Taylor fighting at DREAM 10 this weekend
JT Money has done well in the United States and is now taking his show all over the world. After defeating Rubén Darío on Saturday in Mexico City Taylor will compete this weekend against Korean Judoka Dong Sik Yoon in Japan. Taylor has won six straight fights since being released from the UFC and is looking for #7. Despite the solid 11-3 record Taylor is best known for his antics after The Ultimate Fighter finished taping when he bashed in a window of a limo and was booted from the competition despite being in the Finals. Yoon has lost his last two fights after winning five straight. He holds a victory over Melvin Manhoef and lost a decision to Rampage Jackson in 2006.

Winner of Kampmann-Swick to face St. Pierre
Wednesday, July 15, 2009 - by Ken Pishna - MMAWeekly.com It has been widely rumored and Joe Rogan mentioned it during the UFC 100 broadcast, but the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Wednesday made it official, the fight between Mike Swick and Martin Kampmann will determine the next challenger to UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre. "Wherever we go, fans know UFC delivers great fights,” UFC president Dana White said. "Mike Swick vs. Martin Kampmann could be fight of the night at UFC 103 because the winner takes on Georges St. Pierre for the welterweight title.” After suffering an injury to his groin at UFC 100, St. Pierre will be taking some time off to heal up, but has at least narrowed his next opponent down to the winner of the bout on Sept. 19 in Dallas. "I want to face the best guy," the champ commented after his victory over Thiago Alves. "Right now, I'm in really bad pain. I'm going to take a step back and take a look at it and we'll talk about it, and in a couple of weeks we'll see." He should have plenty of time to rehab his injury and get prepared for his next challenge. Swick vs. Kampmann is still two months away and no date has been revealed for St. Pierre's return bout against the winner.

Randy Couture: Lyoto Machida Is 'Somebody I'd Like to Fight'
Randy Couture is making the media rounds in Portland to promote his August 29 UFC 102 fight with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and in an interesting interview with On Portland, he indicated a desire to move back down from heavyweight to light heavyweight -- at least if it gave him a chance at the light heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida.

Mainstream Media Missing Out on a Golden Opportunity
UFC 100 provided the mainstream media and other writers with a lot of fuel to bash the sport we so dearly enjoy every weekend. Specifically, Brock Lesnar's post-fight antics have garnered interest in a negative way from many sports outlets that simply don't understand the sport. I'm also inclined to believe their business doesn't understand that MMA is going to continue to grow, and those outlets aren't appealing to more readers by bashing it.

Jon “Bones” Jones certainly looked relaxed in the Octagon as he faced “Irish” Jake O’Brien at UFC 100, shuffling around the action like hero Muhammed Ali. He stayed true to his unpredictable style, too, catching wrestler/boxer O’Brien off guard with a fake takedown attempt that turned into a spinning elbow, setting the fight’s end in motion.

Lift The Ban Watch: Massachusetts A Step Closer To Legalizing MMA
The Massachusetts Senate Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday passed "An Act To Regulate The Sport Of Mixed Martial Arts" with a favorable review, clearing it for a debate and vote on the Senate floor. Although it still has a ways to go, this keeps hopes of MMA in Massachusetts, more notably Boston, by early next year or even the end of this year alive.

Cro Cop vs Dos Santos UFC 103, winner faces....
It says "On Cro Cop's way to the top stand Dos Santos and Minotauro". It says Mirko will get a shot at the winner of Couture vs Nogueira, if he beats Dos Santos. The winner of that fight will fight with Brock Lesnar, for the title (in case Brock still holds the title since Dana announced that theres a possibility Fedor will join the UFC). Also its not impossible that Mirko and Fedor touch gloves once again. Thats the translation.
