Anyone notice those longer lines at airports around the country? Returning from Washington D.C. and Ultimate Fight Night 20, my first experience at Dulles proved to be a show of inefficiency. But it's all in the name of safety, right?

MMA fighter Kit Cope put TSA to the test on a trip to Tulsa and he claims they failed. You can't bring on that big tube of toothpaste or the 6 oz. Old Spice, but those brass knuckles? You're good to go. Wow!

Cope is in Tulsa for an interesting fight card that includes plenty of UFC veterans. Houston Alexander (9-5, 2-4 UFC), who many thought ran from the challenge of Kimbo Slice during the season 10 "Ultimate Fighter Finale," is already back in action. He'll take on Joey Beltran. Jeff Monson (31-9, 3-1 UFC) is on the card, as is Jeremy Horn (89-13-1, 6-6 UFC). Rich Clementi (34-15, 5-4 UFC) fights Mike Budnik (7-3, 1-3 WEC). Former UFC light heavyweights Jason Lambert (23-11, 4-4 UFC), trying to snap a five-fight losing streak, and Tim Boetsch (9-3, 2-2 UFC) also are featured in separate bouts. I'm also rooting for 110-pounder Amber "The Crazy Bitch" Powell against Tammy Schneider.

5150 Fights are Saturday night at The Spirit Bank Events Center in Tulsa. Keep an eye out for ring girl Misti.
