    I'm surprised that there's not legal action pending as it shouldn't have been tested for and thus the results probably shouldn't have been released. I'm sure there could be grounds for damaging his career when it wasn't their prerogative to test him for it.

    It doesn't look good and the silence from his camp is also a bit dodgy. Dana and the UFC need to not brush his coke use under the table, who cars if it is out of competition, it harms the brand and most importantly the sport. It just adds fuel to people who class MMA as human cock fighting.

    Make an example of him regardless if he is the big draw, stand by him but strip him of the title and make him earn the respect back. If he is found to be using or had used PEDS then treat him the same as the rest.

    it's not just that his test ratio is so low (got caught cycling off), it's that his andro levels spike from 59 ng/ml to 890 ng/ml two weeks before the fight. I'm almost positive he's on something.

    Oh he is definatly on something no denying that, just got to see some of the guys he has beaten, hes good but he isnt that good.

    Does help when the UFC have got your back, makes dopingabit easier. Lol.

    At leat Vitor is passing his tests, means he his hot to trot adn ready to rock, chances are he will get mangled but we shall see.

    Vi-tard will be dangerous for ~3 minutes and will get mauled by Weidman for the rest. Captain America gets the finish before the 3rd.

    3rd, Ill take the 2nd then. He is going to have to come out all guns blazing and throw the kitchen sink at Weidman, its going to be interesting to see what Vitor is like post TRT, he will either go Death or Glory or fall back on his BJJ. Both of which I think play into Weidman's hands.

    Looking forward to cowboy vs Hendo as well, that fight will be interesting what with Cowboy only recently going the full 3 to a decision win.

    Should be a good fight, I ssem to ignore the smaller weight catagories for some reason. Almost as if its below welter It dosnt escist. Strange thing is the better fights tend to be at lower weights, a lot more barnstormers with them guys.

    Wnat to watch abit more womens MMA, There are some really talented fighters there and some lookers to boot

    MMA, UFC especially isn't looking good in light of more drug use, well confirmed drug use.

    Ellenberger just totally surprised me.

    I'm both going for and picking Alpha Cat to win the big one tonight. (either choke early, or stoppage late)



    postfight edit; suppose anyone would notice if I changed that ^^^^^?


    Only Cyborg left at this point now, but big muscles and a man-mug won't save her from tapping either.

    Do we think Cat could do better with a 2nd try?

    Anyone think Holly Holm is actually all she's cracked up to be?

    It does appear Rousey is just too quick and too skilled for any of them right now, especially Cyborg. I think she'd beat Cyborg at any weight even if it were a PED-not-tested fight (man she looks like freaking cyborg, or should I say she-man looks like a freaking cyborg).


    HH can no way last long against RR, but I don't see that fight soon despite the hype.
    Hell, I say let Misha Tate have it again:lol:, they both like hitting each other in the face,

    and who else can make it out of the first round anyways?

    RR is a monster thats for sure, its her speed and when she gets you on the ground or in here comfort zone of Judo then you may as well just tap. If she gets the arm bar or to be honest even gets the arm its going to be over fairly soon

    Was at Scottish Fight Challenge 9 yesterday. Great card. Something like 18 fights (including some K1 rules) and only 2 went to decision. All KOs and TKOs. Iain Feenan got a TKO against a fellow international level Judoka, who trains with ATT, in less than 2 minutes. Quick headline fight! Keep an eye out for Feenan!

    I'll post some photos and video soonish.

    Bones Jones just lost his title due to UFC suspension!!!
    It took himself to finally kick his own ---:lol:, although maybe he knew he was going to get "rumbled upon" anyways next month. (IMO)

    Now it's D.C. VS Johnson for the belt.
    Given how easily Johnson handled Phil Davis's takedown attempts I'd say this might be a very bad night for D.C., and maybe a short one as well.

    I feel bad for Rumble. Although he is still fighting for the belt, I'm sure he wanted to take it from Jones.

    By the way, Jones is lucky that he hasn't killed anyone yet — this is like the fifth time he's crashed his car.
