Nick Diaz set to compete in Shooto
Sadly its only a submission grappling match but it should still be interesting to see. Diaz is an agressive grappler and his opponent Shinji Sasaki should prove to be no slouch either being that hes a training partner of Shinya Aoki.

Arlovski Interview - "I don't think Fedor is UNbeatable"
I got a chance to speak with former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei "Pitbull" Arlovski. Andrei Arlovski is ranked, by many around the world, as one of the top 10 MMA heavyweights in the world. Arlovski holds notable wins over a who's who of fighters, which include: former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia, Ian Freeman, PRIDE veteran Fabricio Werdum, heavy hitter Paul Buentello, Vladimir Matyushenko and many others. Arlovski is best known for his incredible striking abilities, mobility on the feet, Sambo skills, dangerous submissions and even his unique mouthpiece, which contains two fangs, an accurate portrayal of his nickname, the "Pit Bull."

Martin Kampmann sets his sights on early 2008 return
Quoteworthy: “The injury is getting better. But slowly and still a long way to go. I’ve started boxing again, but still no grappling or wrestling yet. Don’t have full range of motion in the knee and still lacking muscle, but working on it in rehab. I hope I can return to fighting in the beginning of the new year. I miss it a lot and can’t wait.” Kampmann is rehabbing a knee injury that he sustained during training prior to his scheduled bout with former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin at UFC 72: “Victory” in June. He boasts a perfect record inside the Octagon with wins over Crafton Wallace, Thales Leites and Drew McFedries. This is the entire article but here is the link if you want to check it out.

The undercard was also expected to feature a middleweight contenders’ bout between Falaniko Vitale and Riki Fukuda, but that was before Vitale instead, according to Sherdog.com, accepted an offer to fight for K-1 and Strikeforce. In the wake of Vitale’s exodus, Greg Jackson-trained fighter Joey Villasenor has agreed to take the fight with Fukuda in the hopes of getting a return match against either Ninja or Lawler, both of whom he has lost to.
