    I dunno if that'll happen. Anderson's camp came out and said that he was out until after the NY?

    Shogun's trainer says he'll be ready in early 2011, possibly January or February. Hope that's true.

    If Dunham can get past Sherk, that's a fight I'd like to see. Ross Pearson is another candidate.

    Hmm, I wonder...maybe he's ahead of schedule? Dana said that he wouldn't be ready til about April at least. Even if he is ready, I doubt Dana throws him in there right away...he wouldn't do that to his LHW champ, would he?

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    That'd be an awesome fight to put on the NYE card to co-headline with Edgar/Maynard if Anderson isn't ready to go

    If not that card, I bet it co-main's the GSP/Koscheck card.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    The proposed George Sotiropolous/Takanori Gomi match is off. Sotiropolous is expected to face Joe Lauzon at UFC 123 instead. Sotiropolous has seven straight wins and I can't help but feel a match with Lauzon (who recently lost to Sam Stout) is a bit of a step back. However it does feel like a title eliminator-type fight for him.

    Gomi could rematch BJ Penn on the NYE card.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    This should be an exciting fight. So should Sakara/Riveira.

    However UFC 122 looks like a pretty crappy card so far. Brillz/Matyushenko is a snoozer (on paper), Sadollah/Sobotta is meh, and Okami/Belfort is not much of a main event.
