fighters from that card. Damon & Jeff welcome Stephan Bonnar, Josh Burkman
and Matt Grice to the show starting live at 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT.
Stephan Bonnar returned to the Ultimate

20 against Eric Schafer in Cincinnati.
Bonnar looked great in his first
fight back from a suspension in Nevada. He recently completed a move to Las
Vegas to train as part of one of the top teams in the world, Xtreme Couture.
Also on the show tonight will be “The
People’s Warrior” Josh Burkman who is set to return to action at UFC 77 against
Burkman is coming off of a tough
loss to perennial top-ten welterweight Karo Parisyan in his last fight. He hopes
to rebound against the Ohioan Petz who will be fighting in his home state.
Matt Grice will join the show as
well to talk about his preliminary match-up with Miletich fighter Jason Black.
A dominating wrestler from Oklahoma,
Grice had one of the most exciting fights of UFC 70 in England, but came up
short against Terry Etim. He hopes to return strong against Black.
