Jon Jones made his UFC debut at UFC 87 with an upset victory over Andre Gusmao. Jones was very impressive in the preliminary fight that you probably haven’t seen. It’s worth finding if haven’t. He’s definitely someone to keep an eye out for.
Dana White does confirm GSP vs BJ Penn II for the UFC’s December 27 event, however GSP says he’s not fighting again till 2009. We’ll see who wins.
This is great stuff. Steve Cofield has the whole back story on “Crazy Corrie,” including an audio interview with her after she went off on Dana in the above video. Apparently, “Crazy Corrie” and Dana White hugged it out during UFC 87.
You don’t need a statistical analysis to know how dominant Georges St. Pierre was in his title defense against Jon Fitch, but if you’re one of those who like to see the numbers, FightMetric has exactly what you’re looking for.
Word on the street is that Cheick Kongo’s next.
All entries after the jump for those who missed any.
