Scott Coker thinks athletic commissions need to 'let Josh Barnett make a living'
Jon Fitch, who injured his shoulder and has been out of action since his Feb. 27 draw with B.J. Penn, has been cleared to fight again, as he explained on Twitter. "I'm back! Dr. Kavitne gave me the ok to fight." Fitch has repeatedly stated his desire to appear on the UFC 139 fight card coming to his backyard in San Jose on Nov. 19. But he also said he only wants to fight current or former champions. You Maniacs care to find an opponent for him? Anyone that fits the bill?
A middleweight rubber match between Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Tim Kennedy, originally rumored for the Jan. 29 Strikeforce event in San Jose, will no longer be on the card, according to Sherdog.com. Sorry "Monkeys."
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker says Herschel Walker may return to action as soon as the Jan. 29 show in San Jose at the HP Pavilion. Scott Carson may or may not be his opponent. Props: LA Times
