Update On Couture-White Planned Sit Down Meeting
(mmanews.com)
Randy Couture was at UFC 78 and has been civil with Dana White. Dana had claimed that he was meeting with Couture this Tuesday, and sources close to Couture said there was no meeting scheduled. Apparently, they were actually supposed to meet this past Tuesday and Dana thought it was this coming Tuesday, so he wasn't there and Randy thought Dana blew him off. Dana joked that clearly his communication skills still hadn't improved much. He said they would now be meeting after Thanksgiving

(sports.yahoo.com)
On a night in which the main matches didn't exactly live up to the hype, it was up to the lightweights on the undercard to supply the action. Both Frank Edgar and Joe Lauzon made their statements in the crowded 155-lb. horse race. New Jersey native Edgar lit up his home-state crowd at the Prudential Center with a 15-minute clinic against tough Spencer Fisher, while Lauzon tore through previously unbeaten Jason Reinhardt in a non-televised preliminary match.

B.J. Penn says Sean Sherk's UFC belt no better than Marion Jones' medals
(canadianpress.google.com)
B.J. Penn has his eye on Sean Sherk's UFC lightweight title, so he may not be the most neutral observer when it comes to Sherk's positive drug test at UFC 73. But the Hawaii mixed martial arts fighter known as The Prodigy doesn't mince words when it comes to Sherk. The UFC has matched Penn against Joe Stevenson in January at UFC 80 in Newcastle, England, for the interim 155-pound championship, while Sherk appeals his test for steroids. "Sean Sherk can say it's a fake interim title, but his belt is no more real that Marion Jones' gold medals," Penn told a gathering of the UFC Fight Club before Friday's weigh-in for UFC 78 at the Prudential Center.

New Jersey's Boxing Commissioner Fired On Eve Of UFC 78
(nypost.com)
Larry Hazzard, commissioner of the New Jersey Athletic Control Board, which oversees boxing and MMA in the state, was fired Wednesday. What's puzzling about this is Hazzard's apparently good reputation on the job and the timing-just a couple days before UFC 78 in Newark, among other unspoken factors.

Update on MMA in Ontario
I got this email from the Ontario Mixed Martial Arts Association today: MMA took a very important step forward today as the Ontario Mixed Martial Arts Association (OMMAA) has submitted their application to become the sanctioning body for Amateur MMA in Ontario. The Ministry of Health Promotions (responsible for overseeing amateur sport) has promised a quick turnaround with initial feedback and/or concerns about our proposal. There are no guarantees in this process and ultimately the government may simply decide to say no to MMA, but OMMAA Board Members are optimistic. In a letter received on May 3, 2006 from the Ministry of Government Services (responsible for overseeing professional sport) stated the following: “You may wish to contact the Ministry of Health Promotions so that you can explore having MMA recognized and sanctioned through the amateur sporting process. Steps in this direction may enable you to establish a safety record in Ontario…” On November 7, 2007, Ontario ’s Athletic Commissioner, Ken Hayashi, stated the following in a phone conversation with OMMAA: “You guys are doing the right thing going the amateur route just like Muay Thai and KickBoxing had to do. The province will not consider sanctioning professional MMA without having an Amateur safety record first….” The government has held firm on their position of requiring Amateur before Professional. They have consistently and repeatedly communicated this to everyone who has inquired about MMA in Ontario , including the media and even the UFC themselves. OMMAA is the only organization actually taking steps to do what the government has asked. We very much appreciate your continued support! Sincerely, Board Members of OMMAA www.ommaa.com
