09/18/08 News

  • Houston Alexander claims he could not hear his corner yelling out the time, so he tapped. Such a lousy excuse. They were directly in front of his corner and Eric Schafer told Joe Rogan after the fight that he heard them yelling out the time.
  • The Ultimate Fighter 9 will pit fighters from the USA and the United Kingdom facing off against each other. Middleweights and Welterweights will be included for the show. The coaches have not been announced yet, but I have heard from a source that Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson are probable candidates. This could change if Bisping loses his upcoming fight with Chris Leben.
  • Nate Diaz and Josh Neer earned $30,000 bonuses for "Fight of the Night". Alessio Sakara and Wilson Gouveia also earned $30,000 bonuses for "KO of the Night" and "Submission of the Night".
