Penne vs. Aisiling was another fun scrap on TUF. I think it's worth noting this was a fight featuring a former atomweight and a former flyweight so Aisiling did have a noticeable size advantage on Penne and thatms why she was struggling to take her down through the majority of the fight.

Aisling seemed gassed for the majority of the third round and Penne took advantage of that and did a good job of controling Aisilig on the ground and staying on top in that last round.

Penne needs to work on her stand up though cause if she faces a more technically sound striker like Jo Jo, she's going to get rocked a bunch of times or is going to get knocked out.

Well, Penne's opponent in the semi is going to be either Tecia or Carla, so either way she's got her hands full. Two fights on the next show (and both semi-finals the week after that), plus the coaches do battle... a week before the finale (in between the quarters and semis). Although this season hasn't really done anything to build a feud between Pettis and Melendez, so there's no reason to wait for it to peak or owt.

Both fights next week should be good: Tecia/Carla and Jo Jo/Rose.

 

I think Tecia could beat Carla if she can keep the fight standing, but a Carla/Penne fight would be interesting as they're both good friends.

 

Also Jo Jo should be able to beat Rose and then Randa in the next round.

By Football Stadium im assuming you mean Etihad Stadium. Holds 40k+. It's entirely possible they could sell it out before even announcing a fight.

The biggest issue they'll have is scheduling wise with it being used for Football and the AFL throughout the year.

Looks like it's been confirmed by Tom Wright. UFC 193 at Etihad Stadium on 11/15 (11/14 for everyone in the North American timezones) next year.

"UFC bantamweight Michinori Tanaka tested positive for ephedrine and pseudoephedrine based on a pre-fight urine test administered prior to the event. Ephedrine and pseudoephedrine are stimulants banned in athletic competition pursuant to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code. Based on such results, UFC officials decided that Tanaka had violated his promotional agreement and the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. Accepting the accuracy of the test result, Tanaka has admitted to taking over-the-counter allergy medication prior to the fight, likely causing the positive result, and acknowledges the illegal substances were in his system. Consequently, Tanaka agreed to a nine-month suspension from unarmed combat competition. He must pass a drug test at the conclusion of his suspension in order to return to competition. Tanaka will also forfeit his Fight of the Night bonus he earned at the event."

So the UFC Reebok gear deal is official.  I can only assume this was the announcement meant for The Time Is Now presser.

 

 

It's no longer Kos vs. Magny, but Koscheck vs. Ellenberger at UFC 184 in LA. I don't think that's going to end well for Josh.

 

Loser leaves town.
