Liddell Vs. Rua & Griffin Vs. Silva in December?
The rumors of Chuck Liddell retiring could be greatly exaggerated. John Hackleman, Liddell's trainer, said this: "He's already said he'll be back in the gym next Monday, said Hackleman, who has coached Liddell for 16 years. He's going to fight again, hopefully as soon as possible, maybe in December. We're looking at Shogun. This would mean a HUGE December card, if true. Liddell vs. Rua, Silva vs. Griffin, and Serra vs Hughes. Could be VERY huge. Taken from Gerweck.net ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wow! But then Liddell could seriously be looking at his 3rd loss in a row.

Hard Work Propels Fitch up Ladder; Sanchez Contemplates Move to Lightweight
Jon Fitch doesn’t fight with the same electricity as fellow welterweight Georges St. Pierre. He doesn’t have champion Matt Serra’s charisma. Nor does he have Karo Parisyan’s flashy moves. But unlike the rest of the 170-lb. division, he’s on a winning streak that puts the rest to shame.

Whoa-Gun! Griffin Submits Rua on UFC 76 Main Card
In the eyes of many, PRIDE veteran Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua was one of the best – if not the best - light heavyweights in the world. But in his UFC debut tonight at the Honda Center, Forrest Griffin elevated his own status in the 205-pound weight class at the expense of the feared Brazilian, dominating him throughout their three rounder and then finishing the bout with a submission at the 4:45 mark of the final round.

Fight The Good Fight : Preacher Who Knows More Than Most About Bible-Bashing
In the smoky blue light of a studio a semi-naked fighter steps towards the camera.
