Not too many details as of yet.

But will again take place in Britain, this time the venue being the 02 arena in London on Saturday the 8th of September.

Not fights yet announced, but both Cro Cop and Bisping have said they will be on the card.

Quinton Jackson vs. Dan Henderson
Mirko Filipović vs. Cheick Kongo
Michael Bisping vs. TBA

Bisping announced he wil fight Amar Suloev but it is not confirmed.

Looks like a great card, I can see those 3 fights going either way.

Cro Cop's fight looks pretty dangerous, although Kongo has been easily disposed of by average wrestlers, his stand-up is great. The fight will stay on the feet so it will be interesting, Cop is the superior striker but it could get awkward.

Amar Suloev has lots of experience, definately Bisping's toughest opponent yet.

Bisping helped train my cousin...and I can still make him tap out :D

Though he has the scariest immunity to pain I have ever seen. NO leg locks work at all. And I do mean at all.

Looks like a good card, although it's good to see Cro Cop on the card, the pictures of his ankle bent round the wrong way after Gonzaga KO'd him looked pretty sick, does anyone know if he damaged anything there?

Kind of related to UFC 75, Joe Rogan is doing stand up in London on the 6th & 7th at The Arts Theatre in Great Newport Street whilst in the country.

Anyone know if this is going to be another PPV one like the one in Ireland, or do we get to see it on Bravo?

Sorry Bisping fans; but I'm rooting for the deaf guy to kick the living crap out of him.

Full results from the Observer...
Jess Liaudin b Anthony Torres in 4:10 via ref stoppage from punches

Liaudin rocks Torres at 2:00 with Torres hitting the mat. Soon back on
his feet. Good thai clinch by Liaudin. Torres bleeding from nose.
Excellent punch by Liaudin. Punches til DEATH at 4:10. Excellent show
by Liaudin.

Dennis Siver b Naoyuki Kotani via knockout in 2:04

Thiago Silva b Tomasz Drwal via ref stoppage at 4:23 of the second round

Gleison Tibeau b Terry Etim via decision after 3 rounds

In about a minute, hit Houston Alexander beat Alessio Sakara with many standing knees, finally
dropping Sakara with a wham bam knee to the skull and some EVIL ground
and pound. Devastating. Reminsicent of Sokodjou

Marcus Davis b Paul Taylor 4:14 armbar

Davis overpowers Taylor pushing him against the cage, Taylor soon
breaks free knocking Davis with a Mirko kick and some hammer
blows/ground and pound from the guard. Lavigne lets it continue (I'd
have stopped). Davis gets side control in the last 90 seconds, then
full mount, reversal, and a winning armbar from the bottom at 4:14.

Nobody has seen any sign of Fedor anywhere, unless he's being hidden.

Cheick Kongo won the fight over Mirko Cro Cop via unanimous decision after 3 rounds.

Mirko comes out to Wild Boys. Good inside kicks by Kongo, Mirko STALKS
Kongo. Clinch at 1:30. McCarthy breaks up at 2:30. Takedown/slip after
a failed Kongo kick. Mirko chants. Full mount with :51 to go. Good
defence by Kongo and reversal into Mirko's guard in the last few
seconds.

Rogan calls Mirko Fedor! Kongo takes Mirko down after a minute. Side
control then guard. Boring. Mirko jumps up. Kongo holds Mirko against
the face. Suspected knee to the groin. No McCarthy stoppage. Good knees
to Mirko's body to end the round. Kongo's round by far.

Mirko fails in an attempt at the Mirko kick. Another EVIL knee to
Mirko's balls. McCarthy stops. Kongo is more effective at the stand-up.
Kongo clinches Mirko to the cage, hitting occasional knees/stalling for
time, McCarthy stands up at 3:30. More Kongo Thai-clinch/body knees
then back to the stalling clinch against the cage. I give it Kongo
29-28. So do the judges.

Hamill comes out as a heel to Born in the USA. Bisping comes out to
London Calling ~ BABYFACE! This time walking to the ring. Hamill tags
Bisping but nothing too serious. Hamill attempts flying knee. Failed
knee by Bisping and falls down. Hamill lets him back up. Headlock by
Hamill from stand-up. Bloody Bisping escapes. Hamill tags Bisping. This
time it must hurt. Good right hand by the Brit at 4:15. Bisping slips
again to end the round. 10-9 Hamill without question.

Single leg by Hamill into Bispings guard. Hamill lets Bisping up at
1:30. Excellent take down by Hamill at 3:00. Again lets Bisping get up.
Boxing match with Hamill having a slight advantage. Slow round. Again
10-9 to Hamill but not as convincing.

Bisping loses his temper with his corner between the second and third
round. Good early combo by Bisping. Hamill fails with a takedown. Gets
a second one. Half guard then full guard. Bisping gets up. Hamill's
arms drop. Takedown again in Bisping's guard. Bispings active from the
bottom. Hamill gets side control with 45 to go. Bisping gets up. Final
30. Crowd go crazy. 10-9 Bisping. Perhaps 29-28 Hamill overall but
could go either way. NEED to watch 2nd round again.

Judges gives it 29-28 Bisping 30-27 Hamill 29-28 Bisping ~ YAY!
Unconvincing Bisping victory.

No PRIDE theme tune:( Rampage rushes forward, overpowers Henderson to
clinch against the cage. Inactivity. Back to the centre at 1:40.
Henderson sweep and side control. Scramble. Rampage back to feet. Nice
knee by Quinton. Body lock by Henderson. Exchange in final minute.
Henderson advantage. Dan knee at end of round. 10-9 Henderson round.

Excellent wrestling takedown by Henderson at :57, immediately gaining
side control. PRIDE KNEES... to the body. UFC ELBOWS by Jackson from
the bottom. Boos from the crowd half way in. Rampage scramble to his
feet. Failed Henderson takedown, Jackson on top. Dan neutralises
Jackson somewhat. Round could go either way.

Battle a minute in for a few seconds. Jackson takedown. Side control.
Henderson looks for the kimura from the bottom. Henderson reversal.
Jackson uses the cage to get up and hits a knee and strike to end the
round. Another round that could go either way.

Accidentily deleted round 4 report! Probably Rampages round. Knocks Dan
down early on. Dan looks slightly dazed. Dan goes for an armbar and
Rampage passes. Stand-up by McCarthy with over a minute to go with
Rampage winning brief exchange.

Dan starts aggressively. Both tie-up against the cage. Both hit with
strikes after breaking up. Good combo by Rampage. Great right hand by
Dan and takedown in a close guard. Rampage gets up and takedown into
side control. And Dan gets up! Late flurry by Rampage. I give it 48-47
Rampage. A good fight but not a classic and
definitely not a crowd pleasing one.

48-47 49-46 49-46 and "still UFC Light Heavyweight Champion of the
World" ~ no mention of PRIDE. Good post match interview but not his
best. Rogan announces Rampage as the UNIFIED champion.

I couldn't wach this show last night, sadly, so I'll write up a review in a day or so. Anyone catch this? Good show?
