- Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping have gone above-and-beyond the call of duty to promote their Friday night main event fight at UFC Fight Night 55. The two have engaged in some epic verbal warfare, and will finally settle things inside the Octagon from Sydney, Australia on UFC Fight Pass.
But, before that happens, hear Rockhold discuss the Bisping-Cung Le fight from earlier this year. "The Count" won it via TKO, stopping the former Strikeforce champion, and you can watch "Full Blast" in the video above.
- Once again, Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal has seen a change of opponent just days before a fight. Lawal will now meet Joe Vedepo next Saturday night at Bellator 131 after a cut in training knocked Tom DeBlass out.
Lawal-Vedepo will be part of the Spike TV main card that also features Tito Ortiz vs. Stephan Bonnar and Will Brooks vs. Michael Chandler for the Bellator lightweight title.
DeBlass suffered a deep cut while preparing to meet Lawal and will not be able to gain clearance to fight before the date. It is the second time an injury has scrapped the bout.
- Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva suffered a minor scare recently, as "The Spider" lost feeling in his legs following a training session. After a brief stay at a Brazilian hospital, Silva was released and allowed to return to his home.
A report by Combate writer Ivan Raupp stats that Silva is still scheduled to meet Nick Diaz in January at UFC 183. Silva suffered a broken leg this past December and has been out of action since.
Anderson had to spend the night in the hospital due to a strong backache. He is OK, still fights Diaz at UFC 183 -> https://t.co/3j2U0SB74G— Ivan Raupp (@IvanRaupp) November 4, 2014
Anderson lived a drama. He couldn't feel his legs for a moment, because of the contracture, and got desperate. But it was nothing serious.— Ivan Raupp (@IvanRaupp) November 4, 2014
