It's hard not to look past the upcoming UFC 62: "Liddell vs. Sobral" event this weekend, but a lot of stuff is going down right now that we just can't pass up.
Thanks to an article yesterday from MMAringreport.com, here's the latest:
--Dana White essentially confirmed that the Chuck Liddell–Wanderlei Silva mega showdown is unlikely; Liddell-Ortiz II is the likely replacement
--We will see Ortiz-Shamrock III (unfortunately) for free on SpikeTV because White believes fans were cheated out of a proper finish
--Kendall "The Spider" Grove from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 will return to action at the next Ultimate Fight Night on October 10 against Chris Price in a middleweight contest
--Kenny Florian will fight Sean Sherk at UFC 64 in October for the vacant lightweight title
--Marc Ratner is still working hard to get MMA sanctioned in New York. This will have to happen after November 7, however, when a new Governor is elected
--The UFC 63: "Hughes vs. St. Pierre" event on September 23 will take place in California – not Montreal as rumored – because the Bell Center was already booked for a NHL preseason game
