Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Bookings a Poppin’: Barnett, Monson, Koscheck + More

(“Hey, my name’s Josh and I’m a sex addict.”)

— A heavyweight superfight between Josh Barnett and Jeff Monson has been announced as the main event of Sengoku II (May 18th, Tokyo); the card will also feature fights between Kevin Randleman and Ryo Kawamura, and Roger Gracie taking on an opponent to be named later. In recent weeks, Monson has also been reportedly booked to face Mike Russow at Adrenaline MMA’s debut event (June 14th, Chicago), as well as Kevin Randleman at a Global Fighting event on June 21st in Charlotte, N.C. With those three fights so close together, expect at least one to fall apart. Monson most recently defeated Hakim Gouram at a Ring of Fire event last December.

— Speaking of Adrenaline MMA, Monte Cox has been scurrying around trying to fill its first card. Besides Monson/Russow, the June 14th show is expected to feature IFL vet Bart Palaszewski taking on King of the Cage/UFC vet Jeff Cox, and ex-UFC fighter/boxer Terry Martin taking on Daiju Takase.

— The UFC officially added three fights to UFC 86 (July 5th, Las Vegas): Josh Koscheck vs. Chris “Lights Out” Lytle, Patrick Cote vs. Ricardo Almeida, and Cole Miller vs. Jorge Gurgel. Lytle and Almeida are coming off of impressive stoppage wins at UFC 81 in February, where Lytle picked up the “Knockout of the Night” bonus. UFC 86 will be headlined by the light-heavyweight title scrap between Quinton Jackson and Forrest Griffin, and is also expected to feature bouts between Joe Stevenson and Gleison Tibau, Frank Mir and Justin McCully, and Ben Saunders vs. Jared Rollins.

— As for the Ultimate Fighter 7 finale on June 21st, the UFC has confirmed that Evan Tanner vs. Kendall Grove will be the show’s main event — not Diego Sanchez vs. Luigi Fioravanti, which will get secondary status. Also officially booked are Spencer Fisher vs. Jeremy Stephens, Josh Burkman vs. Dustin Hazelett, Marvin Eastman vs. Drew McFedries, and Jeremy Horn vs. Dean Lister. And of course Tim Credeur vs. CB Dollaway (one would assume).

Agreed. Credeur doesn't have many more fights if he's even able to get through another. I'm EXTREMELY surprised that "Chipper" didn't put him away last night. He had every chance to that's for sure, hell if he would have listened to Rampage AT ALL, he would have won that fight via TKO.

On the other hand, I see a VERRRY bright future for "Chipper" (a.k.a. Mathew Riddle). He looked EXCELLENT in his loss to Credeur and only happened to get caught by the arm-bar due to lack of experience.

I don't see Tim Credeur making it through the next round. He didn't have the greatest shot in the world and his striking is Hughes-esque. Dollaway will kill him and so will anyone else who has decent TD defense and decent striking who won't go to the ground out of instinct...

Credeur looked unstoppable in his first fight on the show...but last night it looked like there were a bunch of holes in his game....if that kid would have listened to his corner he would have knocked out Big Ears Credeur....they say he is the Mac Danzig of the show...but unless he eats humice and protects bees too I see no other similarities....

You heard the term here first:

He has a serious case of "Ma Face". Identified as the puffy ground beef black and blue Martial Artists face that only a mother would love!
