    TJ Grant's upcoming fight with Matt Wiman will be his 10th with the UFC and his 10th session in prelims purgatory. At least people get to see the prelims now though.

    Jeremy Jackson's ex-wife named their son Nick after Nick Diaz, who beat Jackson right before she gave birth to Nick. Jackson went on as a last minute replacement for Diaz in The Ultimate Fighter 4.

    I recently found out that Tim Sylvia IS NOT the only fighter to crap himself during his UFC Fight Night 3 fight against Assaurio Silva.

    Apparently Kevin Randleman pooped himself in UFC 35 while fighting Babalu.

    The questionable look on Randleman's face is priceless.
