Wednesday Afternoon News

  • Kimbo Slice is set to return to action this fall. Brett Rogers has been named as a possible opponent.
  • The UFC 89 Fight Card is shaping up nicely. It seemed like a lame card when the Bisping/Leben main event was announced, but the rest of the lineup is solid for a free event.
