- Check out UFC on FOX 10: Road to the Octagon above; the event will take place on January 25 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
- Weeks of internet back and forth between Tim Kennedy and Michael Bisping looks to have led to a fight booking. According to Fox Sports, Bisping and Kennedy have verbally agreed to face one another at the finale for The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Team Canada vs. Team Australia, which is expected to take place on April 16 in Canada. Bout agreements have yet to be signed.
The fight coming to fruition will depend on Bisping's recovery from a detached retina he suffered several months ago that has kept him on the sidelines.
- Bellator moneyweight Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and World Series of Fighting light heavyweight Tyrone Spong got into a heated exchange over Twitter recently, all because of a fairly innocuous Tweet from Spong. The entire exchange is below:
