Joe Silva isn’t having much luck figuring out the top end of the UFC’s pay per view cards lately, but that hasn’t stopped him from booking the shit out of the undercards and Spike shows. Friday featured a bunch of fight announcements, and here’s the stuff that just happened over the past 24ish hours:
Brian Foster vs Brock Larson @ UFC 106 (November 21st)
Brian Foster is a HIT Squad fighter who looked more like Frank Trigg than Matt Hughes in his UFC debut (a loss) against Rick Story. Brock Larson is probably wondering what the fuck he’s doing here on the UFC 106 undercard but it’s his own damn fault … he let UFC virgin Mike Pierce hump his leg for 15 minutes and lost via decision. So now Pierce gets to fight Josh Koscheck at UFC Fight Night 20 (a fight I think Larson was set to get before he done fucked up and lost).
Josh Koscheck vs Mike Pierce @ UFC Fight Night 20 (January 11th)
Unfortunately for Pierce, he’s going to get absolutely pasted. The guy goes for a takedown and then attaches himself your leg like letting go will drop him into hot fiery magma. For some reason I don’t think that gameplan will work on Koscheck.
Jesse Lennox vs Rick Story @ UFC Fight Night 20 (January 11th)
Rick Story made $130,000 bucks at UFC 101 of that Foster guy who’s fighting Larson now, snagging both Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night awards. Jesse Lennox is a WEC welterweight who looked like he was gonna lose to Danillo Villefort in his UFC debut before Villefort ran out of gas. I’m still not sold on either guy. Story doesn’t have much on his feet and if Lennox kept his hands any lower he’d be dragging his knuckles on the canvas.
Rodney Wallace vs Brian Stann @ TUF 10 Finale (December 5th)
We get to find out if Brian Stann can beat anyone in the UFC not named Steve Cantwell. He’s facing UFC noob Rodney Wallace, who comes into this event fresh off finning an 8-man one night tournament where he beat TUF 8 prospect Antwain Britt in the finals.
