Nitt Links Is Talking About UFC

It's not everyday that we get an excuse to talk about Penn Staters  playing sports Penn State doesn't even have. But for one day we'll give it a shot. For those of you who follow Penn State wrestling you may just remember Phil Davis. For those of you who don't know, Davis was a a 4 time All-American winning the National Title in 2008 with an overall record of 116-17.

After graduation Phil made his transition into MMA, and later into the UFC now holding a 7-0 record and is one of the rising stars in the sport. This Saturday night Phil will make his first appearance on the main card at UFC 123 on live PayPer View. A win would keep Phil in the mix in the Light Heavyweight division, and would keep him on the fast track towards a title shot.

For the record. UFC is not WWF. While 15 minutes of fighting might not be your thing, it is not at all scripted, and a lot more artful than it seems. I know that the amount I understand of the sport now has given me a much greater appreciation for it when I first watched. So if you're looking for something to do Saturday night, head out to a bar and catch UFC 123, give a rapidly growing sport a chance, and support a fellow Penn Stater.

Penn State safety Malcolm Willis and rush end Pete Massaro have made major strides |

PSU has generated just 14 sacks in 10 games and the front four will face a different challenge this week. IU senior quarterback Ben Chappell, who is expected to play this week after leaving the Hoosiers' 83-20 loss against Wisconsin last Saturday with a hip injury, is a stationary target. He doesn't move around like Michigan's Denard Robinson, Northwestern's Dan Persa or Ohio State's Terrelle Pryor, the last three quarterbacks that PSU's defense has faced.
