This weekend's UFC 137 has two fantastic featherweight bouts scheduled. #9 Tyson Griffin will take on unranked Bart Palaszewski on SpikeTV and the main card will feature #3 Hatsu Hioki vs. unranked George Roop.

DREAM 17 will air LIVE on HDNet at 3 AM ET on Saturday, September 24 from Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The event will feature the quarterfinal round of the World Bantamweight Grand Prix along with seven non-tournament bouts.
The weigh-ins for the DREAM 17 even taking place at Saitama Super Arena on Saturday morning went off mostly without a hitch last night in Japan. The lone dissenter was King of the Cage veteran Abel Cullum, who weighed in four pounds over the 134 lb. limit.
