Still our favorite UFC ring girl!!
Josh Koscheck and Anthony Johnson have verbally agreed to fight each other at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.
Koscheck announced Tuesday on his Twitter account that he would be fighting Nov. 21 in Las Vegas in a co-main event fight.
“I got some big fight news for me,” he wrote. “I am fighting Nov 21 in Vegas. Co main event!!! Haha it’s on baby!!!!”
Following Brock Lesnar’s withdrawal from his title defense against Shane Carwin, the scheduled UFC 106 co-main event, Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin, became the main event. Reports surfaced later that the UFC was looking to bolster the card with a new co-main, and that now appears to be the case with Koscheck-Johnson.
Koscheck stopped Frank Trigg at UFC 103 in September to rebound from an upset loss to Paulo Thiago in February. Sherdog.com’s No. 5-ranked welterweight, he has 11 UFC wins and four losses. Johnson, 8-2, has won three straight in the Octagon. Most recently he stopped Yoshiyuki Yoshida on Oct. 24.
We’re excited for this one!!
A long-rumored contest between UFC sluggers Houston Alexander (9-4 MMA, 2-3 UFC) and Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson (3-1 MMA, 0-0 WEC) will take place at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale on Dec. 5 in Las Vegas.
That explains why Alexander is applying for a license to fight with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, but what about the weight difference between “The Assassin” at 205 pounds and Slice as a heavyweight? The Times of Northwest Indiana has the answer.
Citing sources close to Alexander’s camp, Matt Erickson is reporting not only confirmation that the bout will take place in Las Vegas rather than the previously rumored UFC 107 event in Memphis, Tenn., but also that the pair will meet at a catchweight of 215 pounds.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since verified the location of the bout but has been unable to get official word of the catchweight agreement.
Slice fought at 230 pounds when he met Roy Nelson on the third episode of “The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights.” Following the loss, Slice told AOL FanHouse he’d be willing to try his hand at a light heavyweight contest, though he apparently hasn’t made it all the way down to 205 pounds just yet.
Alexander seeks his first UFC win since September 2007. After earning devastating knockout victories over Alessio Sakara and Keith Jardine in his first two trips to the octagon, the Nebraska native has suffered three-straight UFC defeats. Alexander was allowed to take a fight outside of the UFC in September, earning a TKO win over Sherman Pendergarst under the Adrenaline MMA banner.
Slice, who recently joined American Top Team, seeks victory in his first UFC appearance. Despite being eliminated on “TUF 10″ in a TKO loss to Nelson, the former streetfighting legend has shown the ability to garner huge ratings during his stint on the show and previous fights under the EliteXC banner.
The bout seems a lock for the evening’s Spike TV-broadcast main card.
Featuring two heavy handed punchers who have shown little interest in ground attacks, the Alexander vs. Slice bout is the odds-on favorite for “Knockout of the Night,” though either fighter could conceivably claim the prize.
The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale currently includes:
* Matt Hamill vs. Jon Jones
* Frankie Edgar vs. Matt Veach*
* Finalist No. 1 vs. Finalist No. 2
* Houston Alexander vs. Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson*
* Dennis Hallman vs. John Howard
* Brian Stann vs. Rodney Wallace
* Mark Bocek vs. TBA*
* – Not officially announced

September 26th 2009 Two days after tropical storm Ketsana struck the Philippines, sending six metre floods surging through Manila, the capital is a disaster zone. While the floods have receded somewhat, parts of the city are still underwater; the rest is under several feet of stinking mud. Nearly two million homes were inundated, and around 400,000 people are homeless. More than 12,000 people have been rescued, and with colds and exposure already hitting children and the elderly, aid agencies are scrambling to get food, clean water and medicine to a desperate city. Parts of the city of 12 million people were under 20 ft of water, leaving nearly half a million from their homes across Manila and surrounding provinces.
