Octagon Buzz – MMA News And Notes

Some interesting news in the world of mixed martial arts this week, so let’s get started.  A big thanks to Sherdog.com for the knowledge:

  • According to the management team of Gina Carano, she is expected to return to EliteXC around October for the promotion’s October 4 event; even though no opponent has been named for a bout with Carano, it is rumored to be Kelly Kobald.
  • Last week, Sherdog reported that the UFC‘s Martin Kampmann was set to undergo some arthroscopic knee surgery and would be out of action until at least October; however, according to Kampmann and his manager, Ken Pavia, that may not necessarily be the case.  Kampmann informed Sherdog, “I’m not injured or nothing.  I can train and fight, too.  I have a minor problem with my meniscus that needs to get taken care of eventually — maybe now or maybe after one more fight.  It’s a minor thing but will still require some weeks off once I choose to get the surgery.  So far, I’m undecided as to when to get it, but if I fight first, I will still kick ass, no problem.”
  • Sherdog is also reporting that Gray Maynard – who is still rehabbing a wrist injury – has stated that he will probably fight at UFC 90, which is set to take place in Chicago, IL; Maynard admitted names heve been thrown around, but nothing concrete as of this writing.
