Israel Fighting Championship: Genesis - Frank Trigg vs. Roy Neeman Pre-Fight Interview
While the division awaits the return of #1 Georges St Pierre vs #4 Josh Koscheck around year's end, we'll get to see them coaching The Ultimate Fighter.
Traditionally, one of the least storied in MMA, the middleweight division has enjoyed one of the biggest and best months of its existence. And yet, the impact on the rankings was miniscule.
Not a lot of action in MMA's toughest division in July. But August will change that when #2 Jon Fitch finally gets to rematch #3 Thiago Alves at UFC 117.
Cross your fingers fight fans, #2 Chael Sonnen has made a lot of promises about his title shot against #1 Anderson Silva at UFC 117, with the most important one being that he's got the skill set to force Silva to fight rather than goof around in the cage.
Fighters talk about Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin battling at UFC 116 for the undisputed heavyweight crown. Randy Couture, Gilbert Melendez, Gray Maynard, Frank Trigg, Daniel Roberts and Erin Toughill break down the fight billed as the biggest fight in UFC heavyweight history.
The biggest news in the middleweight division in June involved #2 Chael Sonnen's twitter account and whether or not he went too far in smack talking in advance of his UFC 117 bout with #1 Anderson Silva. That explains the conspicuous lack of movement in the rankings this month.
# 1 Georges St Pierre remains atop the welterweight division. From his lofty perch he awaits #4 Josh Koscheck. They'll coach The Ultimate Fighter together before facing off in a title fight at the end of the year.
