News and Notes
- According to reports, all of the fighter’s drug tests from UFC 68 came back clean. Surprisingly the Ohio Athletic Commission only tested Randy Couture, Tim Sylvia, Jon Fitch, and Luigi Fioravanti.
- UFC Junkie is reporting that Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans will take place at UFC 72. It was originally thought they would fight at UFC 71.
- Josh Barnett released a message on his Myspace blog yesterday stating that it was unlikely he would be appearing on the upcoming PRIDE 34 card. More PRIDE drama…
There are some rumors thaty I will be fighting on the next PRIDE show, April 8th. Well I wish I could say there was much truth to it but at this point it doesn’t look very likely at all.
I had been training on a schedule to fight on the now canceled April 28th show and was contacted about now fighting on the 8th. Even though this would cut my time to train significantly, I was still receptive to fighting and planned to fight anyway. But at this point PRIDE has been unwilling or unable to make a match happen. We have yet to make any headway in booking a match and ,to me, it seems as though they are not even trying.
- The UFC has officially released a message on The Ultimate Fighter 6 tryouts. Here is their message and the TUF 6 application.
