UFC Roundup: Bonnar To Fight in September, Maynard to Return at Fight Night 11, and More

  • Runner-up from The Ultimate Fighter’s first season Stephan Bonnar has joined Xtreme Couture, the MMA gym headed up by current UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Coututre. Bonnar’s next UFC fight will be in September.
  • In the last match to round out the unofficial UFC 75 lineup Dennis Siver will face Naoyuki Kotani. Both fighters are 0-1 in the UFC so this will obviously be a big fight in both of their UFC careers and could send one of them to fight outside of the UFC, at least temporarily.
  • Sam Caplan has completed a new interview with Tito Ortiz. In the interview Tito discusses contract negotiations, other promotions, and recent comments made by Dana White.
  • Gray Maynard has been added to the UFC Fight Night 11 rumored card against UFC newcomer Joe Veres.
  • Sam Stout has been told that an eventual rubber match with Spencer Fisher is expected.
  • Matt Hamill is no longer training with Team Punishment due to family commitments and is instead training out of Cincinnati
  • Kendall Grove is training with Xtreme Couture for his fight against Patrick Cote at UFC 74.
  • Justin McCully’s next UFC fight will be in September.
  • In a recent interview Manny Gamburyan has stated that he would like a rematch with The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner Nate Diaz. Gamburyan was winning the fight before he was forced to tap out after his shoulder was dislocated.
  • Former UFC Lightweight Champion Jens Pulver is slated to face Cub Swanson at a WEC event September 5th.
