TUF 7 Format Apparently Set
(mmanews.com)
UFC matchmaker Joe Silva, making a public appearance over the weekend, announced to the crowd the planned format/weight class for the 7th season of The Ultimate Fighter: Middleweight. This certainly would be a good time for MW to be featured again as there hasn't been much at MW to get excited about and the last time they did MW on TUF, we got the fiasco that was Travis Lutter missing weight and blowing his title match against Anderson Silva.

Arum: Pavlik Win Bad For UFC
(boxingscene.com)
In a recent interview with BoxingScene.com's Jose Aguirre, promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank said that WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik will lead the way to boxing's revival and his knockout win over Jermain Taylor is the biggest blow that the UFC has suffered to date. He also added "There is nothing in UFC or any of this martial arts bulls*** that compares to this." I believe the appropriate quote here is "them's fightin' words".

Mike Kyle Serves Suspension, Back in Action
(mmajunkie.com)

Former UFC fighter Mike Kyle (9-5-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has served an 18-month suspension after a brutal May 2006 attack on an opponent and will return to action on Tuesday at a Central Valley Cagefighting show in Fresno, Calif.
Im disgusted with this news!!! That **** should of been banned for life ffs! He has always been a dirty fighter - biting Wes Sims and generally never stopping until a ref pulls him off, he loved GnPing already KO'd fighters in a bad way, and that aint fighter bashing cos its just fact for anyone that has seen those fights and just knows what kind of guy Kyle is, he is scum and bad for the sport! In case you dont believe me then watch the fight he got suspended for - worst thing to happen in mma ever, Gomi was bad but that was just terrible and the guy is just utter scum!

LeBanner referred to the night afterwards as being "A New Pearl Harbor".

Fedor talks UFC, Randy Couture
(ufcmania.com)
“As far as I know, [the UFC] give me Randy Couture, so there is talk about a match against this fighter. I respect Randy very much. Of course, to be honest, I would not want to fight him because I really admire this fighter, and we could have become friends. Oh well, a fight is a fight, and if they put us against each other, . As far as fighting in the UFC goes, I think I’ll have to fight him, I won’t have a lot of problems as far as cage is concerned.”
