Rashad Evans - His Time Has Come
(ufc.com)
Trash Talk? Rashad Evans has heard it all and it doesn’t faze him one bit. But it’s not the incessant smack being delivered by his opponent this Saturday night, Tito Ortiz, that has hardened the light heavyweight contender. Nah, as one of eight children, Evans learned his lessons in the fine art of gamesmanship years ago, before he even stepped into the Octagon.

Tito Ortiz - Last Stand or a Rebirth?
(ufc.com)
Tito Ortiz once stood where Rashad Evans now stands. Almost a decade ago, ‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’ was the young gun in the UFC, ready to take on the veteran stars of the Octagon, Guy Mezger and Jerry Bohlander. Ortiz had already suffered a defeat in his career (to Mezger), something Evans hasn’t yet experienced in his 15 pro bouts, but despite his one loss, there was a sense of excitement around the charismatic Californian, of a changing of the guard, something Evans hopes to repeat on Saturday’s UFC 73 card in Sacramento, California.

Denied Licensure In California, 7-foot-2 Behemoth Eyes Fight In Hong Kong
(thefightnetwork.com)
CHOI TO FACE GOODRIDGE ************************ Hong Man Choi will fight MMA veteran Gary Goodridge in the K-1 World Grand Prix Aug. 5 at the Asia World-Expo Arena in Hong Kong, according to the Fighting and Entertainment Group’s K-1 Web site. The 7-foot-2, 355-pound Choi was denied a license in the state of California a little more than a month ago when he failed pre-fight medicals for his scheduled main event bout with Brock Lesnar at K-1 “Dynamite!! USA” June 2 in Los Angeles. The California State Athletic Commission did not release the reason behind its refusal to grant Choi a license, though K-1 representatives told the foreign press the week of the “Dynamite!! USA” show that the denial centered on a tumor found during required medical testing. The same representatives indicated to the press that they did not believe the tumor was dangerous and that Choi could have fought. Choi’s bout with Goodridge will follow traditional K-1 kickboxing rules and will be contested over three three-minute rounds; a two-round extension will be added if necessary. Inquiries have been made to CSAC Executive Director Armando Garcia regarding what impact Choi’s K-1 appearance would have on his future in California. The K-1 World Grand Prix was moved from its original date (July 29) to Aug. 5 due to conflicts with Upper House elections and Fuji’s television schedule. Other participants scheduled to appear include four-time K-1 Japan Grand Prix champion Musashi and two-time Grand Prix champion Remy Bonjaski.

Vera to fight two times, by the end of 07'
VERA SHEDDING MANAGER, WANTS BACK IN THE OCTAGON By Loretta Hunt (loretta@thefightnetwork.com) Heavyweight contender Brandon Vera says he will fight two times by the end of this year, this in light of lingering contractual issues the 29-year-old has with both his existing manager Mark Dion and with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Vera stated yesterday in an interview on FIGHT NETWORK RADIO that he has parted ways with Dion, who also owns the City Boxing gym in San Diego, and will seek arbitration through the California State Athletic Commission as early as July. Vera confirmed he had been offered a title bout against former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia on March’s UFC 68 card in Columbus, Ohio, though he did not elaborate why the bout never came to happen. Randy Couture would come out of retirement to earn the title from Sylvia with a five-round unanimous decision. In late March, Vera signed a six-month extension with the UFC with one fight left on his current contract. Vera had previously stated he intends to re-sign with the UFC. Though only 6-0 in the fight game, the muay Thai savvy Vera has created a wave of anticipation with four dominating turns in the Octagon, including his decimation of former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir via first round TKO at last November’s UFC 65.
