UFC Booking Roundup: Jonathan Brookins to Return at TUF 13 Finale, Torres vs. Pickett + More

(Damn, Arianny. Him too?)

After out-pointing Michael Johnson last December to win the TUF 12 lightweight trophy, Jonathan Brookins is gearing up for his first post-TUF opponent in the UFC. MMA Junkie reports that the super-chill bro-dog with the funky hair will take on Jeremy Stephens at the TUF 13 Finale (June 4th, Las Vegas). Stephens is 6-5 in the Octagon (19-6 overall), and most recently knocked Marcus Davis out of a job at UFC 125. Despite Stephens’s spotty record, he’ll be a tough challenge for Brookins, whose biggest weakness seems to be his standup defense; against an explosive power-puncher like Stephens, that could be a problem.

In other UFC booking news…

- Now riding back-to-back wins, former WEC bantamweight champ Miguel Torres will look to continue his career reinvention against Brad “One Punch” Pickett at UFC 130: Edgar vs. Maynard 3 (May 28th, Las Vegas); Torres confirmed the fight himself via Twitter. While Torres hasn’t been earning many fans lately with his cautious new fighting style, Pickett has been gaining a rep as an exciting showman. The London-bred fighter compiled a 3-1 record in the WEC, and most recently defeated Ivan Menjivar by unanimous decision at WEC 53.

- Though he was originally supposed to face Matt Hamill at UFC 129 (April 29, Toronto), undefeated light-heavyweight Phil Davis is getting a new opponent due to the recent clusterfudge in the 205-pound division. The word is that ‘Mr. Wonderful’ will now be taking on Jason Brilz, who hasn’t competed since his controversial split-decision loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 114.

This is gunna be a tough one for Brookins, but Stephens has shown a repeated ability to be outclassed by fighters on their way out (Davis for 2 rounds), middle tier fighters (Fischer), and anyone with a wrestling prowess (Tibau), so this fight could go either way.

Fight of year=Phil Davis vs. Jon Bone Jones.
UFC has to stop feeding Davis cans. He looks like he could be the next LHW GSP.

@Joe Mama; LOL, you mean he looks like Rocky from the movie "Mask"?

I guess you missed the part where Ariany is notorious for screwing ugly fighters, e.g. Tiki Ghosn. Seriously, pull the stick out of your ass.

So she stands with the guy for a photo ... she must be sleeping with him guys!

Only appropriate caption would have been some beauty and the beast reference.

Joakim Noah needs to concentrate on returning to the court.

God, Brookins vs Stephens.

Who do I want to see lose more...?
Rocky Dennis- February 16, 2011 at 4:09 pm
Nice work, Junior.
Arianny- February 16, 2011 at 3:47 pm
You're next, Ben

Stephens throws too hard for Brookins. His mind tricks, post-coital Arianny dong, or what's eating Gilbert Grape face won't do shit against this attack.
Waxedpants- February 16, 2011 at 2:57 pm
Unless Brookins has done some serious stand up work in the past few months stephens is going to knock him the hell out.

Phil Davis Vs. Jason Brilz on the main card for the biggest gate the UFCs had yet? This GSP Vs. Shields card has some serious potential to suck in front of such a huge crowd. They should have moved Guida Vs. Pettis to this show.

^ Besides Nick Ring, I mean. Since he's... y'know. Not that there's anything wrong with that. If that's... y'know... what you like and all.

Jebus Ali Babba Buddha F'kn Bruce Almighty Christ! Seriously, is there any fighter Arianny won't hook up with nowadays??
Turd Furgeson- February 16, 2011 at 2:33 pm
Palhares is way more explosive than Phil Davis.
KJD- February 16, 2011 at 2:26 pm
LMAO! I immediately thought about Rocky Dennis as well. I am sensing a Mask remake since they are remaking every other damn good movie. Jon will work cheap and not require any makeup.

Rocky Dennis wouldn't fuck Sarah Jessica Parker with your dick.

Jonathan Brookins looks like what you'd get if Rocky Dennis fucked Sarah Jessica Parker.
