Michael Bisping vs Chris Leben UFC 89 fight set for Birmingham
(mmamania.com)
The 185-pound clash between Michael Bisping (16-1) and Chris Leben (18-4) is back on and will take place at the National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham, England, on October 9, according to recent comments from UK UFC President Marshall Zelaznik in an interview with SetantaSports.com. Here’s the snip: “Two of our amazing fighters, Michael Bisping and Chris Leben, have just agreed to fight. Everyone knows about Leben’s striking power, and it’s the strike fest everyone wants. It’s the fight everyone wants to see.” Indeed, this has fireworks written all over it — both men prefer to keep on the feet and throw leather. If it does go to the ground, however, Leben possesses a distinct advantage with his underrated ground skills. “The Crippler” and “The Count” were set to bang it out at UFC 85: “Bedlam” earlier this month. But Leben was jailed for an old parole violation when he turned himself in, which he needed to do if he wanted to obtain a visa to travel overseas to fight in London.

Forrest Griffin: ‘He hits hard. I don’t have the best chin in the world’
(globesports.com)
The main event at UFC 86 will be more about business than bad blood when Quinton (Rampage) Jackson defends his light-heavyweight title July 5 against Forrest Griffin. The two are coming off a stint as rival coaches on The Ultimate Fighter reality TV show. But unlike some past seasons (think Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock, B.J. Penn and Jens Pulver, Matt Hughes and Matt Serra), not many sparks flew. Threats were largely replaced by one-liners. The drama for Jackson-Griffin will come in the cage at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, rather than in front of a microphone. “I fight for a living,” Jackson explained in a conference call Thursday. “I don't think it would be fair if I fight people while I was pissed off. Wouldn't even be a fair fight. They shouldn't even allow me to fight if I was pissed off. “I'm happy. Happy to be making money, happy to be in the UFC. Happy to be defending my title.” Griffin, who sometimes can seem in his own zone, was just as matter-of-fact. “Whether you like the guy or hate him, it doesn't matter,” added Griffin. “You're going to hit him as hard as you can. It doesn't really matter how you feel.”

Jesse Taylor To Fight on UFC July 19th Fight Card?
(fighthype.com)
"Despite being kicked out of TUF Finale it appears Jesse Taylor is set to make his return to the UFC" Wouldn't let me copy and paste but anyway Take it for what it's worth as I don't know the credibility for this website but a match between CB would be pretty good imo.

Jorge Gurgel Gets New Coaches, Keeps Same Bad Gameplan
(bloodyelbow.com)
"I needed to be just a student," he says. "I needed somebody to say ‘OK, man, you do nothing but train with me and prepare for a fight.' Matt said, ‘You're going to come to Seattle and I'm going to take care of you.' "I've never had a coach who focused on me. I have a school with 400-500 students. … I'm always working with pro fighters, the guys that we train, and training myself. I've never had a coach to tell me when to stop training, when to train more, when to train this technique, what to do."

UFC's merchandise agreement: good in theory, not on paper
(sportsillustrated.cnn.com)
Mixed martial arts is in the business of overnight money-making -- raking in hundreds of millions in its opening years while many (ethically and legally) still push it away. And the biggest player behind the sport's chart-defying growth: the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Revitalized in 2001 by Zuffa, LLC, the UFC has emphasized its "strong ownership and depth of management" as the brand enhanced the sport's international and national presence, helped it ride the wave of reality TV, put it near the top of premium and network television ratings and guided it into the arena of merchandising and sponsorship to make it a force to be reckoned with in sports business.

Matt Hughes knee injury may not require surgery
(mmaweekly.com)
You can add injury to insult for Matt Hughes. Not only did he lose his most recent bout, to Thiago Alves at UFC 85 in London, but he also suffered a severe knee injury. During the second round of their bout at the O2 Arena on June 7, Alves unleashed a brutal flying knee that put Hughes down and out. On the way down, his left leg bent back awkwardly underneath him, causing severe pain in the knee. Hughes on Wednesday posted an update on his official blog indicating the severity of the injury, but also the possibility of not having to undergo surgery. “I found out my results, I’ve got a totally torn MCL that is still attached? to my femur. I’ve got a partially torn PCL. They really think that the PCL ?will repair itself and that MCL has a chance of repairing itself. So we’re ?going to hold off on surgery right now. I am going to get a second opinion? this week, so that might change; but for now we’re going to hold off on? surgery.”

It seems that even though Evan Tanner lost a supposed loser leaves town fight to Kendall Grove at the TUF 7 Finale, he won't be leaving UFC because of the loss, but rather due to what he calls some "serious health problems for a while now". Tanner says if he can't get it figured out, he's retiring.

The House That Hazelett's Submissions Built

It turns out that Dustin Hazelett wasn't just fighting for a victory against Josh Burkman at the TUF 7 Finale. He was also fighting for money-the bonuses he earned for his submission victory and Fight Of The Night helped Hazelett get that much closer to buying a house he's had his eyes on and needed the money for.

Rampage heard Wandy KO’d Griffin in training
(mataleon.podbean.com)
I wasnt able to sit down with Rampage Jackson for a typical fighter interview but instead I went to work as usual on a Tuesday night and after being there for about an hour my other co worker walks in and informs me that Quinton Rampage Jackson is coming to my work to meet up with some of my co workers friends to take pictures of his Audi R8 for Dub magazine. So literally the whole time they were taking pictures of Rampage’s R8 he was chiling with me in the back of my store just talking about random MMA information. I cant post the conversation word for word because I did not record it or write it down but im going to try and paraphrase it for all of you as best as i can.
