Nadia Kassem the latest Aussie to break into UFC ranks
(dailytelegraph.com.au)
NADIA Kassem is Australia’s newest UFC fighter — and also its most unlikely. Unknown to all but the most seasoned Sydney fight fans, 21-year-old Kassem will make her Octagon debut at UFC Auckland on June 11. Fighting for only two years, the undefeated Wentworthville product was given the surprise call up during a recent coffee break at DHL Pharmaceuticals, where she works in customer service. And in a further twist, the rising strawweight will also be joined on the Auckland card by fellow UFC newbie Ashkan Mokhtarian — who doubles as the brother of her boyfriend/coach, Suman.

Woodley wants GSP, calls Bisping fight ‘the cowardly move’
(mmafighting.com)
By all accounts, the next man challenging for the UFC welterweight champion will be Demian Maia. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu savant earned that right after capturing his seventh straight win at UFC 211 with a hard-fought split decision over Jorge Masvidal. That’s just fine with reigning UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. Woodley said Monday on The MMA Hour that UFC officials haven’t yet asked him about Maia, but if they do, he’ll be more than willing to face the 39-year-old contender. However, if “T-Wood” had his druthers, a different name would still fall at the top of his wish list.

Michael Bisping too injured to fight Yoel Romero, prefers to wait for Georges St-Pierre
(mmamania.com)
I feel like I’ve heard this somewhere before... Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Michael Bisping was expecting to fight former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre, but “Rush” kept delaying his return to the point where promotion president Dana White got tired of waiting. Bisping was perfectly fine just hanging around. Probably because “The Count” is still recovering from knee surgery and can’t fight “anytime soon.” That’s according to comments the brash Brit recently made on his official podcast (via MMA Fighting) detailing his current state of health.
