Josh Koscheck vs Frank Trigg possible for UFC 103 on Sept. 26; Matt Hughes also in the mix
(mmamania.com)
Top-ranked welterweight contender, Josh Koscheck (12-4), and former number one division contender, Frank Trigg (19-6), are in talks to battle it out for 170-pound supremacy at UFC 103 on Sept. 26. MMAmania.com learned earlier today about the likely match up; however, a venue is still unknown at this time (locations in the United Kingdom and Las Vegas are under under consideration) for the event. In addition, nine-time division kingpin, Matt Hughes, is also lurking in the shadows as a possible opponent for Koscheck … albeit on the outside. When reached for comment, Koscheck indicated that he didn’t have a preference, saying “I’ll fight either one of those guys. Line them up back-to-back so I can beat one and then move onto the other. It’s nothing personal against them — Trigg and Hughes are both great fighters and a fight with either one of those guys would be a great show for the fans. And that is what it’s all about. I want big fights against big names, guys who will motivate me to train harder than ever before — Trigg and Hughes are those types of guys.” “Kos” broke his toe back in April while training for his 170-pound match up with Chris Wilson at UFC 98, which would have marked his fourth fight in six months. The wrestling phenom is already back at full strength after spending the past few months on the disabled list, itching to return from the sidelines and get back to his winning ways. Koscheck was recently upended when he walked into a Paulo Thiago uppercut at UFC 95: “Sanchez vs. Stevenson” last February. The referee jumped in to stop the action in the first round after Koscheck hit the canvas, which several onlookers, including Koscheck, felt was a premature stoppage. He will no doubt look to exact revenge on his next opponent, which could very well be the the 37-year-old veteran welterweight who just this week signed a contract to return to the organization.

Yves Lavigne Stands By 98 Bradley-Nover Call
(sherdog.com)
While it might have been a tough call to make, referee Yves Lavigne says he stands by his decision to stop the Kyle Bradley-Phillipe Nover fight at UFC 98 when he did. Lavigne said Nover's body language when he went to stop the fight said Nover was "out" even though Nover quickly recovered. Lavigne says he'll adjust accordingly for his next assignment after reviewing the fight, and NSAC head Keith Kizer supports Lavigne's decision on the stoppage.

Chicago out for 2009, but Indianapolis in UFC's sights for 2010
(thetimesonline.com)
The Ultimate Fighting Championship will not return to Chicago in 2009 according to Marc Ratner, the UFC's vice president of regulatory affairs, but it may be coming to Indianapolis in 2010. The UFC came to Chicago for the first time in October 2008 for UFC 90 at the Allstate Arena in suburban Rosemont. The event took place just about three months after mixed martial arts regulation took effect in Illinois. Some of the cities in which the UFC puts on events, outside of its Las Vegas base, have become fairly regular blips on the MMA radar screen. Columbus, Ohio, has hosted a UFC pay-per-view each March the last three years. Montreal has played host to highly successful cards the last two Aprils. But that apparently won't be the case for Chicago -- at least yet. "Our schedule is pretty well done for this year," Ratner said, saying Chicago is not on the promotion's calendar for 2009. "But yeah -- we'd like to go back to Chicago. It's a great, great market. Maybe to the United Center this time. But we're also looking at cities like Memphis, (and) we're going to go to Portland (for UFC 102) at the end of August. We're very ambitious." Ratner said the Midwest has been a market that has worked for the UFC. In the last three years, the world's largest MMA promotion has put on events in Columbus, Cincinnati, Chicago, Minneapolis and Nashville in an attempt to go into as many new markets as possible. And with legislation to regulate MMA in Indiana taking effect on July 1, the possibility for a UFC or World Extreme Cagefighting show in the Hoosier State comes into play. (The WEC is owned by Zuffa LLC, the same company that owns the UFC.) Chicago played host to WEC 40 in April. Ratner said the UFC is interested in putting on a show in Indianapolis at Conseco Fieldhouse -- either a pay-per-view or a "Fight Night" card, which would air live on Spike TV -- and already has begun preliminary discussions to come to Indiana for the first time, but that would not happen until 2010 at the earliest.

Marcus Davis Blog - Part 1
(ufc.com)
We’re just over two weeks away from what has become the most important fight of my whole career in mixed martial arts, and the most important fight I’ve ever had in MMA or even in my professional or amateur boxing careers. “Hate” is a very powerful word, I know. It gets thrown around a lot when people don’t really mean it, like “Aw, I hate mustard!” or “Aw, I hate this song”. But I hate my opponent at UFC 99. I hate Dan Hardy.

Dana White thinks Fedor Emelianenko will eventually end up in the UFC
(mmamania.com)
“I would never cross-promote. Regarding Fedor, he either wants to come over and fight here or he doesn’t. If he came over and wanted to fight I’d do a deal with him in a minute. You know we’ve been chasing him since we bought Pride. In my opinion, I think it’s going to happen. He’d be crazy not to. I mean, why not? He’ll come over here and make a bunch of money and maybe even win the title and go down in history as the greatest heavyweight ever. The problem is it’s one thing for everyone to say it, I mean I can say, “Brock is the greatest heavyweight ever” but they have got to fight. It’s the only way to find out. We can argue about it all day but in the end you just have got to get out there and fight.”

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!
