* Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (16-3) will make his Brazilian debut on May 9 when he faces Dion Staring (15-5) in the main event of Jungle Fight’s Ceara event. Nogueira last fought in January at Affliction: Day of Reckoning, where he defeated Vladimir Matyushenko via TKO.
* Dana White appears on ESPN’s E:60 next week on May 12th. White noted during his UFC 97 vlog that during the filming of the piece, UFC PR was uncomfortable with what he was saying and how it was coming off and were caught trying to shutdown the interview. White feels that it will wind up in the piece, similar to when Brock Lesnar walked out during his E:60 feature last year when the question of steroids was brought up that ended up staying in the final piece.
White told Cage Writer “You think that’s going to be a big positive story on Dana White? But I don’t care. It is what it is.” He goes on to note that the piece will be that “‘Dana White is this foul-mouthed, lunatic who got the company to this point (but) is he the guy who can take it to the next level? Will he be around?’ That’s going to be the tone of this thing?”. Below is video of Dana White talking about the ESPN piece with Cage Writer:
