Brock Lesnar Expected for UFC 91?

Brock Lesnar Frank Mir UFC MMA

According to the Pioneer Press:

Former Gophers wrestler Brock Lesnar, who is 2-1 as a mixed martial arts fighter, found out this week that Ultimate Fighting Championship would like him to compete next on a November card, but his opponent and site remain undetermined.

That November card (also known as UFC 91) will reportedly go down on 11/15 in Portland, Oregon, with a bout between Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson likely to be on the lineup. The most prevalent rumor regarding Lesnar’s opponent is that he’ll be facing Cheick Kongo. In other UFC news…

— Anheuser-Busch has tapped Chuck Liddell and Anderson Silva as spokesmen for Bud Light. Which is kind of strange considering both of them are nearly unintelligible without a translator.

— A lightweight bout between Rich Clementi and Gray Maynard is slated for UFC 90 (October 25th, Chicago). Clementi has won his last six fights, including a submission of Anthony Johnson at UFC 76 and a decision win over Terry Etim at UFC 84. Xtreme Couture’s Gray Maynard increased his record to a perfect 5-0 with his unanimous decision over Frankie Edgar at UFC Fight Night 13 in April.

— Dana White will be appearing on A&E’s Mindfreak next Wednesday at 10 p.m. According to UFC.com: “With the use of a blindfold, a knife and a deck of cards, Criss attempts to teach UFC® President Dana White first-hand how to do a prediction of his own. Can Dana pull off a little magic with the help of the Mindfreak?”

UFC 85 Rumor Mill: Bisping vs. Leben on SpikeTV?

(Decisions, decisions…)

Though the UFC has confirmed none of this yet, some strong UFC 85-related rumors are circulating that we wanted to pass along. The word is…

— James Irvin will indeed fight Rashad Evans, replacing an injured Chuck Liddell.

— The main event will feature Michael Bisping taking on Chris Leben. (Thanks for listening, guys!)

— UFC 85 will possibly be broadcast on SpikeTV. That would be enough to appease American fans — with four solid matchups on the main card (including Vera/Werdum and Davis/Swick), it’ll be at least as entertaining as an “Ultimate Fight Night” — but a show without a true big-name headliner could potentially slow the UFC’s momentum in the U.K.

We’ll let you know when any of that is formally announced.

Somewhat related: You think seven weeks is a short layover for Michael Bisping? Well, Rich Clementi is only getting five before his next fight. “No Love,” who just scored a hard-fought split-decision victory over Sam Stout on the undercard of UFC 83, has been booked to replace an injured Rob Emerson in a lightweight match against Terry Etim at UFC 84 (May 24th, Las Vegas). Clementi has won his last three UFC bouts, including submission victories over Melvin Guillard and Anthony Johnson, while Etim took his first career loss via unanimous decision against Gleison Tibau at UFC 75.

“No he did *not* just put his nuts on my neck.”

(Dana White, checking out Melvin Guillard’s junk.)

With this new interview for the Baltimore Sun‘s MMA Insider blog, Melvin Guillard joins Quinton Jackson and Frank Shamrock in the ranks of fighters who can’t even fake sanity when speaking in public forums. Read on for the interview’s highlights, where Guillard switches back and forth between delusional and incredibly fucking delusional:

On his moral victory over Rich Clementi at UFC 79: “He didn’t take my heart. I took his heart before he got in the ring. He was scared to fight me before he got in the ring…when I see him again, I’m going to fight him again…I went home for New Years and the places he wants to go, he wasn’t even there. He knew I was going to be there looking for him. He never showed up anywhere. As long as he keeps hiding from me, running from me, I’m winning the war every day…he was holding on like a scared little bitch [during the fight]. He was holding on for dear life as if if he let me go, he knew he would lose the fight…When I do fight the next jiu-jitsu guy, I hope they have a prayer for him — I’m not going to be so nice anymore.”

On Clementi’s “Suck It” gesture after the fight: “He put his nuts on the back of my head. When I catch him, I’m going to kick him in his [expletive deleted] nuts…My dad always told me if a man spit on you or slapped you, [expletive deleted] kill him. And if he put his nuts on my head on national TV, I’m going to [expletive deleted] kill him, period…as I’m getting up, it’s like he kicked me in the back of the neck, and it pushed me back down a little bit. So, I’m like, ‘What the [expletive deleted]?’ And, I jump up like, ‘No, he did not just put his nuts on my neck.’ So, that’s why I went after him like I did.”

On popularity: “I got booed before the fight, I got booed after the fight, but I’m still one of the crowd favorites.”

On the origins of his psychological issues: “Nobody is ever going to stand in front of me and beat my ass. My mom did that all my life so those days are over with.”
