Tons Of News & Future Fights Announced After UFC 73

At the UFC 73 post-fight press conference, president Dana White made a couple of noteworthy announcements.

Dana said that a rematch between Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans is likely. Both seemed to want the fight. No word on if it will be an immediate rematch or not, although Ortiz has one fight left on his deal now and can be stingy when it comes time to re-sign.

There was more talk of a B.J. Penn vs. Sean Sherk fight for the UFC Lightweight title, which had been rumored before. As usual that all seems dependant on if Penn will remain at 155 lbs.

Dana White mentioned the possibility of another Nogueira-rematch as he said if Mirko CroCop gets past Cheick Kongo at UFC 75, it will be Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Mirko CroCop II. I like it.
