UFC Fight Night 18: Martin Kampmann preparing for war against Carlos Condit
(mmamania.com)
I think it’s going to be a war. It’s going to be a great fight. He’s a tough guy and I’m just going to get in there and try to punch him in the face, and he’s going to try to do the same to me. It should be a great fight. He’s good at a lot of things. He’s dangerous on the ground, he’s got good submissions off his back, he’s got dangerous knees and kicks. I pretty much know what I have to look out for. No matter who you fight in the UFC it’s going to be a tough fight and anything can happen. Everybody’s tough in the UFC and Carlos Condit is definitely tough. [Dropping to 170] is an easy cut. Not tough at all. I’m pretty light right now so the cut shouldn’t be any problem.

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.....)

According to a new published report, it appears that Lyoto Machida receive his shot at the UFC light heavyweight title sooner rather than later.

The Sun adds that with Jackson’s hand injury preventing him from fighting at UFC 98, Machida has been tapped to challenge Evans. War Rampage...oh wait.
