Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Aleksander Emelianenko to Earn Next Paycheck Against TUF 10 Whipping-Boy Darrill Schoonover

After emerging from a retirement that lasted all 12 days of Christmas, nomadic heavyweight Aleksander Emelianenko has been on quite a tear in 2013. He beat up Bob Sapp, he beat up Some Dude, and he got us all hot and bothered by appearing on a poster with Cro Cop. Indeed, the life of a can-crushing international playboy was too seductive to avoid forever. Not that baking bread in a Greek monastery isn’t totally awesome, and all.

Which brings us to Alek’s latest not-particularly-competitive booking: Fightlinker passes along the announcement that Emelianenko will return at an August 25th ProFC show in Rostov-on-Don, where he’ll face Darrill Schoonover, the Texas-bred heavyweight and TUF 10 castmember who is perhaps known best as…yeah…Titties. (Man, Rampage Jackson is just a master when it comes to personal branding.)

Schoonover was a hot prospect when he entered The Ultimate Fighter in 2009, carrying a 10-0 record (all wins by stoppage) and the title of Shark Fights Heavyweight Champion. Then, he went on Kimbo’s season of the reality show, got knocked out in the quarterfinals by Marcus Jones, got TKO’d by James McSweeney at the TUF 10 Finale, then lost four more fights in the minor leagues. But Schoonover is currently on a three-fight win streak, and even pulled off a decision win against Paul Buentello last year.

So…any predictions on this one? The most accurate guess wins this cool rock I just found outside of my house.
