They claim that rumors that have been swirling for weeks regarding this match up have been confirmed. The the bout is likely to happen according to sources, It may not be for the heavyweight title. It looks as though the UFC is holding out some hope that Randy Couture could change his mind and return as the UFC heavyweight champion, though that appears to be a long shot.

Rashad Evans' Road to 78 - Week Two
(ufc.com)
Sometimes it doesn’t pay to be nice. I was trying to be a nice guy here on this blog, and then Bisping went and made all these comments about me last week and now I’m training five times a day because he pissed me off. How is he gonna say that I’m making a mistake in saying what I did last week? I think I’ve got him sized up right and I wasn’t wrong about one thing I said about this guy. He surprised me when he fired back the way he did, but that’s exactly what I want to hear and I want him to believe what he’s saying. I want him to believe that he can go in there and knock me out. We’ll see on the 17th.

Possible Departures of Nate Marquardt and Yushin Okami Thinning UFC’s Middleweight Division?
(mmajunkie.com)
Despite his 25-7-2 record (including a 4-1 mark in the UFC), a top-10 worldwide middleweight ranking, and solid name recognition within the UFC, Nate Marquardt is still waiting for a call about his next fight. Steve Sievert, our friend over at the Houston Chronicle, recently spoke to Marquardt’s agent. Marquardt has one fight remaining on his current deal, and according to the agent, the UFC hasn’t contacted his client about his next fight or to discuss a possible contract extension. Because the UFC prefers to re-sign fighters before the final fights on their contracts, this doesn’t appear to be bode well for the seven-time King of Pancrase.

Since his fight on July 7 against Hermes Franca, Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight titleholder Sean Sherk has been sitting in limbo following a positive test result for performance enhancing drugs. He has twice been scheduled to have a hearing with the California State Athletic Commission to resolve the accusations and twice the commission has issued a continuance to a future date. “It makes me real angry,” said Sherk about the appeal process with the CSAC. “They had a lot of time to prepare for my case and they weren’t prepared and now I’m the one suffering for it.

Why Brock is fighting Frank Mir
(mmaweekly.com)
Alot of people are wondering why Brock's first opponent is Frank Mir. Heres an interview with Brock where he specifically asked for an opponent with credentials. ""I'm looking to fight somebody with credentials. I'm not just talking Silver Medals in Judo. I want a belt. I've fought a lot of tomato cans. I've already had it. You know? I want a fillet Mignon. Let's do it, and do it right. I want to fight somebody, somebody that's got credentials because I've got them too. There isn't a wrestler, there isn't a heavyweight out there my size that has done the things I've done."

Brad Imes To Fight This Weekend
(mmanews.com)
Former UFC Heavyweight and TUF 2 runner-up Brad Imes, now fighting in smaller MMA promotions and making a name for himself for winning via gogoplatas, is to fight for the Palace Fighting Championships promotion this weekend. Imes has a tough main event ahead of him, but it'll be fun to see if he wins by gogoplata again. Also, it seems like this press release got Imes' record wrong (he's listed as 0-3).

Fedor Not Fighting on New Year's Eve
(mmaweekly.com)
Fedor Emelianenko – currently ranked as the No.1 fighter in both MMAWeekly.com’s top ten heavyweight fighters and Yahoo! Sports’ top ten pound-for-pound poll – has been the subject of much rumor and speculation in recent months. His signing with the new M-1 Global mixed martial arts promotion put much of that talk to rest, but it all sparked up again when speculation about him fighting in Japan on New Year’s Eve started circulating. That talk can now be put to rest as well.

This fight was confirmed by representatives at Xtreme Couture. This seems like a step down for Tyson as his last bout with Tavares carried more weight in my eyes. I would like to see him fight KenFlo, but this should still be fun to watch.
