Tito Ortiz: Matt Hamill “Clearly” Beat Michael Bisping
Add Tito Ortiz to the list of people who thought Matt Hamill got shafted at UFC 75. The UFC light heavyweight served as a coach on “The Ultimate Fighter 3” for both Hamill and Michael Bisping, and he saw a clear winner in his two students’ recent fight at UFC 75.

Why Has Chuck Liddell versus Wanderlei Silva Never Taken Place?
When you think of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, no other fighter draws more respect and recognition than Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell (20-4). A former division 1 wrestler and a kick boxer by trade, Liddell has used his “sprawl and brawl” tactics along with his devastating knockout power to successfully become one of the most feared and beloved fighters in the UFC

Business As Usual for The Iceman
Death, taxes, Related News and Chuck Liddell. The first two we can all do without, but when it comes to the sure things in this world, it’s nice to know that the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion never changes.

UFC's Negotiations with Fedor "hit a snag"

Tito Ortiz To Re-Sign With UFC
In an interview with the website IronLife.com, "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" Tito Ortiz says he is going to re-sign with UFC. I'm looking forward to Tito staying around, seems like Lorenzo Fertitta (co-owner of Zuffa, the parent company of UFC) was able to give him a good enough deal to keep him around.

Main Event Set, Carano Struggles to Make Weight
Carano, who came it at 141.1 pounds, appeared weak while doing a one-leg balancing act on the scale. With promoters briefly discussing whether the Las Vegan would need to drop the weight, Carano's opponent Tonya Evinger (Pictures) looked on, surprised to learn that there was a one-pound weight allowance. Carano, shaky and on weak legs, rushed to take a seat, where she gulped down Pedialite before Evinger finally conceded and the fight was made official. As the two squared off for the traditional staredown, Carano barely had the energy to keep her arms raised, eventually opting to fold them across her chest.

EliteXC: Evinger wants to make out with Carano
Normally I try to take a mature approach when it comes to female fighting. My wife is a semi-pro Muay Thai fighter and I’ve trained with females before. I know how hard it can be at times for them to be taken seriously and treated lake legitimate athletes. But hey, I’m going to break from tradition here, thanks in large part to a comment made by Tonya Evinger during yesterday’s local press conference in Hawaii to hype EliteXC’s Uprising card this Saturday at the Blaisdell Center.

Jake Shields: "I Want To Finish Him"
EliteXC Welterweight fighter Jake Shields, ranked #8 in the world by MMAWeekly, is set to take on Renato "Charuto" Verissimo Saturday night on the Showtime portion of the event. Shields thinks he can knock Verissimo out standing. It'll be interesting to see if Shields can back up his claims, not to mention this is the 3rd time they've tried to do the fight (first time was in a tournament, second time the event was postponed).

Clementi vs. Johnson Added To UFC 76
Rich Clementi vs. Anthony Johnson has been added to UFC 76. The fight between UFC & TUF veteran Clementi and UFN 10 participant Johnson was signed last night, bringing the UFC 76 card back up to 9 fights. This might be a bad fight for Clementi, his last fight was less than 2 weeks ago so that won't give him much time to recover and prepare.
