Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua in Talks Regarding 'Really Big Fight', Potentially Lyoto Machida!
(bloodyelbow.com)
According to InsideFights.com, Dana White will be speaking with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua as potentially a challenger to the newly-crowned Light Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida for a September matchup. Dana White met with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at the Zuffa offices today and is in the process of putting together what Dana calls a "really big fight". Our gut feeling tells us that Lyoto Machida will be defending the light heavyweight belt against Rua in September. That would leave Machida without an opponent for the December show, since Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson will likely be meeting on that card.

Rampage And Rashad Tapped For Coaching TUF 10
(mmajunkie.com)
The UFC may have just thrown us a curveball. The upcoming 10th season of "The Ultimate Fighter" will feature former UFC light heavyweight champions Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Rashad Evans as coaches, according to Fighter's Only. So what about current champ Lyoto Machida, who won the title this past weekend at UFC 98? So a little change of plans... I like this way more than holding the belt up...

GSP Makes Men’s Fitness 2009 MF 25
(mensfitness.com)
By dismantling UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn earlier this year, St-Pierre took ownership of the "best pound-for-pound fighter" mantle. GSP routinely kills it in the gym with strength and conditioning coach Jonathan Chaimberg, a fellow Montreal native. Chaimberg has taken him from only eight body-weight pullups per set to now banging them out with a 120-pound dumbbell attached to his waist. Normally 188 pounds, St-Pierre cuts about 20 pounds for a fight and carries only about 5% body fat. "He's probably the most gifted athlete you'll ever meet," says Chaimberg.

Rampage lets cat out of the bag on TUF
(mmaweekly.com)
UFC president Dana White announced at the UFC 98 post-fight press conference that former light heavyweight titleholder Quinton "Rampage" Jackson will get the first crack at newly crowned Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida's belt. Speculation immediately arose whether Jackson and Machida would be coaches on the next season of the Spike TV reality show "The Ultimate Fighter." White was asked point blank at the press conference if the coaches for the tenth season of the show had been picked. White confirmed they have been chosen, but wouldn't divulge any names. "I'm not going to tell you. We start filming on the first and there's a media day on like the second or third. All your questions will be answered then," said White. Jackson let the cat out of the bag on his Twitter account (twitter.com/rampage4real) late Wednesday night that he was a coach on the upcoming season. It read, "Packing my stuff to move to Vegas to coach TUF!!"

FRANK TRIGG SIGNS WITH UFC
(mmajunkie.com)
Veteran fighter Frank Trigg (19-6 MMA, 2-3 UFC) is returning to the Ultimate Fighting Championship after signing a four-fight deal with the organization. Trigg, who's a daily host for MMAjunkie.com Radio, today told MMAjunkie.com about the signing, which took nearly nine months to complete. Trigg, who recently turned 37, went 2-3 in his first UFC stint from 2003-2005, but he's perhaps best remembered for two unsuccessful attempts at Matt Hughes' UFC welterweight title. Very, very cool and I hope he tears it up!

Machida and Rampage to coach TUF 10?
(mmaweekly.com)
Now that Lyoto Machida has cemented himself as the #1 light heavyweight in the world, the next step for him is to defend his title, and possibly build his reputation with more fans all over the world. A natural step to build that bridge would seem to be placing Machida on the next season of the "Ultimate Fighter" reality show, and have him opposite his next opponent, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who previously served on the show during season 7. UFC president Dana White was asked point blank if the coaches for the tenth season of the show had been picked, and while he was able to confirm they have been chosen, he wouldn't divulge any names. "I'm not going to tell you. We start filming on the 1st and there's a media day on like the 2nd or 3rd. All your questions will be answered then," White responded.

Dana White Laid Ground Work for Lyoto Machida vs Quinton Rampage Jackson in 2006
(bloodyelbow.com)
The victory on Saturday was a validation of his investment in the Machida's tactical, karate-based style, which drew early criticism from fans. "We bought the WFA to acquire his contract and Rampage's," added White. "I've always thought this kid was talented." Dana made that investment back at the end of 2006 and Rampage was already well-enough known to be part of the story when the purchase was made, but Lyoto was not.
