UFC 99 In Germany Will Be On US PPV
(mmaweekly.com)
The UFC's German invasion has shaped up quickly, with the bulk of the June 13 fighters confirmed in less than a month. More than half the fighters on the card are either foreign-born or based outside the US, with one fighter, Peter Sobotta, bringing in the hometown crowd as a resident of Balingen, only 272 miles, or 438 kilometers, from the 20,000 seat Lanxess Arena in Cologne. The UFC recently inked a deal with German sports network DSF to air UFC content, including live or tape-delayed events. At the festivities for UFC 96 last weekend, UFC president Dana White said the European card would come at a premium for those watching in the US. "It will be a pay per view event," White told reporters. (scroll down a bit.....)

Exclusive: Fedor NOT Fighting on DREAM's OWGP
(dreamfighters.com)
We asked M-1 if there was any truth to this rumor, or statement made by a DREAM Official. There is no truth in this rumour at all. No one really thought it was possible for Fedor to enter, but a great deal of people hoped, including every major Croatian news team. After the statment from the DREAM official that they plan to host a Open-Weight Grand Prix, and they want Fedor and Mirko to be in it, right away they hoped for Fedor vs Crocop 2. However, at this time M-1 is saying “No Truth At all” to this statement and rumor.
