It looks like the UFC has alas wised up and officially deemed UFC 95, set for London, England, a Spike TV “International Event” as opposed to an unjustifiable pay-per-view. Kudos to seeing the light Dana and crew, but how about working on that UFC 93 Dublin show, eh? I mean, it is Christmas.
Speaking of upcoming events, it was recently discovered that Jon Fitch, who battled and came up short against Georges St. Pierre just this past August, has been relegated to the “may not be broadcast” undercard of UFC 94 where he is set to take on Akihiro Gono. The obvious question here is whether Fitch ‘s downgrade is simply due to an already stacked main card, or backlash for his brief but highly publicized rift with UFC brass over video game likeness rights. I’d like to think that its the former, but then again hell hath no fury like a swearing bald man scorned.
