Each day, The MMA Corner will provide a recap of results, event announcements, fight matchups, and injuries/cancellations from throughout the world of MMA.

Hamman vs. Philippou set for UFC 140

Jared Hamman is looking to build off his middleweight debut and second-round stoppage of CB Dollaway when he takes on Constantinos Philippou.  Philippou is also coming off an upset win, defeating Jorge Rivera at UFC 133.

UFC 140 takes place Dec. 10 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.


Rogers arrested again

Former Strikeforce fighter Brett Rogers was arrested again.  Rogers was initially arrested in June for a vicious domestic assault where he allegedly punched and choked his wife.  He pleaded guilty to charges of stemming from that assault in August.  His most recent arrest stems from violating the requirements for his pre-sentencing release of not having any contact with his wife.

It is unclear at this time if his latest arrest will have any impact on his sentencing.
