Evans Will defend This Summer Against Rampage Or Machida
(mmaweekly.com)
With UFC 96 only 2 days away, Quinton Rampage Jackson and Keith Jardine, met the press at the customary pre-fight press conference to address last minute questions about their fight and of course what will happen in the light heavyweight division after their bout is over. UFC President Dana White announced at the press conference that UFC light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans, would be defending his title this summer against either Jackson if he is victorious against Jardine, or Lyoto Machida if Jardine wins. White was also adamant in saying that if Jardine does get the win, he will get closer to a title shot, and he will fight Evans if he's still the champion.

Terry Etim vs. Justin Buchholz Back on at UFC 99
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Terry Etim (12-2) will be fighting Justin Buchholz at UFC 99 later this year, Fighters Only was informed earlier today. The Liverpool lightweight earned plaudits and comparisons with Anderson Silva after his profile-raising head kick KO win over Brian Cobb at UFC 95 late last month. Etim (3-2 in the UFC) was supposed to fight Buchholz (1-1 in the UFC) at that event but a bad staph infection meant that Cobb had to be drafted in as a replacement.

Matt Hamill Puts The "Ability" In "Disability"
(sports.yahoo.com)
A warning should come for all those who choose to travel with Matt Hamill: If you have a plane to catch or a meeting to make, it might be wise to say your goodbyes and move along without him. Otherwise, you’re going to miss your flight or be woefully late for the meeting. The Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight contender is such a friendly, decent and caring man that he can’t pass up an opportunity to chat up anyone who sidles up and says hello. Hamill, who on Saturday will fight unbeaten Mark Munoz in one of the televised bouts on the pay-per-view card of UFC 96 in Columbus, Ohio, has performed so many selfless acts over the last five years that the stories of them floating around on Internet bulletin boards are enough to fill a volume the size of “War and Peace.”

Tito "Rampage stepped up to murder Jardine"
(punchdrunkgamer.com)

Tito Ortiz – “This is a fight that didn't need to happen. After Rampage got screwed on a rematch for the title, he KO’ed Silva unconscious! Evans was afraid to fight Rampage, so Rampage stepped up to murder Jardine. This won't be a fight to get excited about. KO after the 2:35 mark of the 1st round for My boy Rampage.”

Matt Hamill vs Mark Munoz will not be a wrestling match at UFC 96
(mmamania.com)
“It’s a great matchup for me. Wrestler versus wrestler. But it’s not gonna be a wrestling match. It’s gonna be, I feel like, whomever has adjusted to MMA better. That’s going to win the fight. All the in-between techniques. The transitions between wrestling and other disciplines. It’s going to be an interesting fight. I’d like it to be exciting. I know Matt Hamill’s gonna want to stand. In a lot of fights, he uses his wrestling sporadically. I like to use wrestling to set up other things. I think obviously his strength is his takedowns. But I haven’t seen much ground game from him.
