UFC 75 Breaks Spike TV and North American Ratings Record
"Saturday’s tape-delayed broadcast of UFC 75 scored a 3.1 rating — or, approximately 4.7 million viewers — to set an all-time ratings record for Spike TV. Additionally, the event was the most-watch mixed-martial-arts event ever in North America." Now this is cool and good for the sport

UFC 76 Videos Up..Forrest Disses Shogun
The preview videos are finally up at 76.ufc.com for the main three bouts. Chuck vs Jardine, Shogun vs Forrest, and Diego vs Fitch. Forrest talks a lot of smack including "I met Shogun, I was sizing him up, he was sizing me up, all I was thinking was, man, I really want to punch that guy in the face." LOL I hope Shogun doesn't see that, Forrest buddy, Shogun is the superior striker, grapper, and has superior takedowns. I wish you the best, but I think you could cry again like when you fought Jardine. I also think Fitch will beat Diego.

Blame the system.... We gotta fight the power!
I don't really care about the article sating that the system is flawed not the judges. But check out that poll. I can't even pick 4 of my favorite fighters. My number one being Hendo, two Big Nog, three Mayhem, four Couture, and finally Nick Diaz. They have Bisping, Hamill, and Serra. Who is going to pick those guys as there favorites?!?!?!?!?! Worst poll I have ever seen. Thumbs down fox news, thumbs down.

Wilson Gouveia off UFC 76 Card
Thomas Gerbasi, UFC - Due to a broken nose suffered in training, Wilson Gouveia has been scrapped from his UFC 76 bout with Jason Lambert at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on September 22nd. The intriguing 205-pound matchup is expected to be rescheduled in the future, and due to time constraints in finding a suitable opponent for Lambert, the UFC 76 card will now feature eight bouts. mmajunkie.com has it wrong. Lambert isnt the injured one.

Questionable verdict
LONDON – Michael Bisping got a victory, but he was no winner on Saturday. The records will show that Bisping raised his record to 14-0 with a split-decision victory over archrival Matt Hamill at UFC 75 before a sellout crowd of 16,235 at O2 Arena. But Bisping handled himself with so little class afterward that his perception as one of the sport's good guys may have been shattered forever.

Bisping to Fight next at UFC81?
If you goto Bispings Official site at bisping.tv and click contact, when you get to mailing Mike's Manager, the page header comes up Interviews for UFC 81. So I'm assumiung that he'll be fighting on that one and it will possibly be in the UK or Germany (Dana mentioned he was looking to put an event there at the UFC 75 Press Conference). Who his opponent will be is anyone's guess, but there has been some talk of both Houston Alexander and Tito Ortiz.

Fighters Convinced Fedor Has Signed With UFC
This article was posted today, although it appears the author wrote it before the event happened. Word is many fighters feel that Fedor is signed, and they are wondering when Dana will let the secret out. That's also why Randy never talked about Nog, Kongo or CC as a potential opponent, yet Mike Goldberg slipped out a possible matchup with Fedor during the main event. Article mentions Affliction deal, fighters feelings towards Fedor being signed, and rumors he would be at UFC 75 (although it hasn't been confirmed he was actually present). My sources say Mark Cuban has said he is signing with UFC, and that his signing should be announced at UFC 76 in California.

CroCop Breaks Rib In UFC 75 Fight
Mirko broke his rib in the 1st round of his disappointing loss vs Cheick Kongo. It makes sense, seeing as how he dominated that round and performanced poorly after. He has a message for his fans.

Hunt Signed With UFC?? Lesnar Update
A fan who was at the weigh-ins in London posted this about answers Dana White shared during the public questioning period. Apparently Mark Hunt is signed and they are wondering what to do with him due to his weight (he could make 265 easy he's been there before), he was VERY suspicious in regards to Fedor (Rogan mentioned him a lot during the UFC 75 broadcast, but he wasn't shown on camera and it's unknown as of now if he was there)....they also talk about AA fighting in November possibly vs Big Nog, and a lot of other interesting notes including a Brock Lesnar update.

Champion Again? Hendo Ready To Add Another
Just when it looked like Dan Henderson’s fight schedule was about to get very busy after he knocked out Wanderlei Silva winning the 205lb belt to go along with his 183lb Pride title, the organization was bought out by Zuffa and the Team Quest member had his world turned upside down.

Can Mirko Break the Cro Cop Curse?
Just as though he appeared on the cover of the latest Madden video game or had been praised on the cover of Sports Illustrated as the next champion of the UFC, it looked like Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic had a curse following him during his last trip to England when he was upset in dramatic fashion by Gabriel Gonzaga, a fight and a loss that cost him a chance at UFC heavyweight championship.
