  1. Two UFC Lightweight stars coming off of disappointing peformances in their last bouts are expected to meet at the upcoming UFC on Versus 2 show as MMA Mania is reporting that former PRIDE Champion Takanori Gomi and former UFC Lightweight Championship challenger Joe Stevenson have verbally agreed to a bout at the event. Stevenson saw a two-fight winning streak snapped by George Sotiropoulos at UFC 110 in February in a bout that saw the strength and wrestling of Stevenson neutralized by the Aussie for fifteen full minutes on his way to a unanimous decision win. Stevenson's record with the UFC since joining the promotion following the second season of The Ultimate Fighter sits at 8-5, but he is just 2-3 in his last five bouts. Gomi debuted in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 21 late last month and was completely dominated by Kenny Florian for the majority of the bout before Florian earned a rear naked choke submission midway through the third round. Gomi has been very hit and miss since his prime days in PRIDE, going just 4-3 since the promotion collapsed in April of 2007 following a 13-1, 1 NC career mark in the Japanese promotion. UFC on Versus 2 takes place on August 1st and is expected to be held at the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, though there has been no official announcement from the promotion regarding the venue.

  4. Well, Cro Cop's return was a short one. He broke the news to Dana after the event. Needless to say, Dana was very PO'd. http://mmajunkie.com/news/15191/mirko-cro-cop-filipovic-leaves-ufc-after-one-fight-return-at-ufc-99-in-germany.mma
