News and Notes
- Tonight UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell will appear on HBO’s hit series Entourage. The show airs at 10 PM EST and it will feature Liddell getting into an exchange with Johnny Drama.
- In a recent interview with GracieMag.com, former PRIDE heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, provided his thoughts on Gabriel Gonzaga’s recent upset of Mirko Filipovic at UFC 70: Nations Collide.
“I saw on the GRACIE site that things didn’t go to well for the Croatian. Napão and I have never fought, not even in the gi, but if one day we are both up to dispute the belt, we will surely face each other, even though we are both Brazilians,”
“I spoke of Cro Cop and Couture for being the non-Brazilians of the moment over there, I was not underestimating Napão by any means. He is very tough, but really, based on the number of fights each has, I could not imagine Cro Cop would fall in that way. You are gonna tell me you knew Napão was going to knock him out?” he returned the provocation, with a cackle.
- It is rumored that Roridgo Nogueira will make his UFC debut at UFC 73 in Sacramento, California. No opponent has been named at this point.
- UFC Fight Night 10 will be headlined by a lightweight bout between TKO LW champion Sam Stout and UFC LW contender Spencer Fisher. Also on the card will be Stephan Bonnar vs. Mike Nickels.
