MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

UFC Quick Notes: Tanner, Alexander, Huerta + More

Evan Tanner‘s memorial will be held at 2 p.m. on September 27th at the Civic Center (401 South Buchanan Street) in Amarillo, Texas. Tonight’s Ultimate Fight Night broadcast will be dedicated to Tanner, and an Evan Tanner tribute show will be airing soon on Spike.

— Even though the ink on Houston Alexander‘s new five-fight contract extension hasn’t even dried yet, Dana White admits that if the Assassin loses against Eric Schafer tonight, he’ll need to leave the UFC for a while to rack up some wins in other promotions.

Roger Huerta‘s loss to Kenny Florian last month was very hard on him emotionally, and he’s desperate for a rematch. In an interview with Fighters Only Magazine, he also seemed to imply that he’ll be leaving Greg Jackson’s team: “I would like to go back to the way I used to train, with the people I used to train with. Those guys were like brothers to me, not just trainers.”

TUF 7 finalist C.B. Dollaway will reportedly return to the Octagon at UFC 92 (December 27th, Las Vegas) against middleweight veteran Jorge Rivera. Dollaway is officially 1-1 in the UFC at this point, after being submitted by Amir Sadollah via armbar at the TUF 7 finale in June, then submitting Jesse Taylor via Peruvian neck tie at “Silva vs. Irvin” in July.

— Speaking of fight bookings, Mike Swick and Jonathan Goulet have agreed to fight each other at the Ultimate Fighter 8 finale on December 13th. Both men have won their last two fights in the UFC.

Round 5′s new Sean Sherk collectible figure doesn’t really look like Sean Sherk. But the Wandy and Spider figures are definitely worthy of being displayed in your cubicle.

I saw the first line of toys today at Champs, I think I'll buy one of them -- a waist of money, but fun enough to buy -- especially if I got money to waste

"Anyone know where I can watch tonights fights via live stream on the net? My sattelite is fudged up from hurricane Ike and I cant watch it."


Yea, there is a way. I had a similiar problem when i tried to watch Silva Vs Irvin fight on my cable. Download an application called TVU Player. Its a live stream of channels via satelite that you can watch on your computer monitor. You def. get Spike tv and sometimes the occasional WEC bouts.

I think the figures resemble their name-sakes close enough. I can't wait for the UFC Saturday morning cartoons. (sarcasm)

I've met Houston, he's a nice guy. But I don't know if he's at the level he needs to be yet for the UFC. Bet he could beat Kimbo though!

Doesn't look like Sean Sherk? Are you crazy? I knew it was him before I read the name....

Live in Nebraska, going to the fight night tonight and I wanted to root for Alexander when he started (except for his passion for the stupid football team) but he needs to grasp the concept that staying in Omaha to train is a huge mistake. He needs to go else where (hell even over in Iowa to MFS) and evolve his game.
