    They've always called anyone who's fought for UFC one time a "UFC veteran"....I've never understood that.

    Yeah, I kept thinking that as well, veteran the guys early 20's & had 3 fights how's that a veteran, but then anyone who has had a fight in any mma organisation is classed as a veteran. I think he's still welcome to go back to the UFC, it's just that he's not signed to a long term deal like Chuck. Most fighters usually sign a one fight deal, unless they impress then they get a 3 fight deal & renegotiate when it expires (hence Tito leaving the UFC when he did, holding out for more money).

    Bisping was the LWH title holder, but his gym Wolfslair at the time had a falling out with Andy Greer & Dave O'Donnel (CR owners) so they stripped him of his title early last year. It was nothing to do with TUF.

    Anderson Silva was also their MW champion, but now's he's gone to the UFC I think that's vacant as well.

    I don't know if he is the last reigning Light Heavyweight champion in their company, or if he even held the title. He hasn't fought for them since November of 2004, a knockout win over Mark Epstein. Regardless, he's exclusive to UFC now since he won the TUF contract, which calls for you to fight exclusively for the UFC.

    I thought Bisping was the LHW champ over there. Did he give up the title to fight in the UFC? Besides that if everything is true that will be a kick ass card.
