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

Bookings, Rumors, and Economy-Boosting Images

(‘You may now resume bartering!’)

Fedor Emelianenko and the rest of the Affliction/M-1 traveling circus showed up to ring the Nasdaq opening bell this morning, thus signaling that everything is going to be a-okay in the financial world.  Just to make sure everything went smoothly, Fedor again wore his special sweater.  Either that’s the only article of clothing he brought to America, or Fedor didn’t go back to his hotel room last night because he wandered around the city looking for scary rollercoasters until morning.

- Sean Sherk will not be wrestling Roger Huerta out of the UFC, as was initially rumored, but will instead be taking on Frankie Edgar at UFC 98.  Edgar, who’s coming off a win over Hermes Franca at UFC Fight Night 14, was held down for three rounds by Gray Maynard for his first UFC loss back in April, so at least he knows the drill by now.

- A bout between Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and Mark Coleman is rumored to be a possibility for UFC 99 in Germany this summer.  Dana White said he wouldn’t offer Cro Cop a one fight deal to accommodate his retirement plans, but says he’s open to bringing him back if they can come to terms.  The other opponent the UFC may be offering him?  Tito freaking Ortiz, seen above bro-ing down with Affliction.  

“UFC sources” say that they’d like to get Ortiz back for the Germany show to cash in on his popularity over there.  Apparently he’s a sort of MMA David Hasselhoff, which makes a lot of sense when you think about it.  The biggest obstacle between a Cro Cop vs. Ortiz or Coleman bout right now (aside from the fact that only one of those three men is under contract with the UFC) is the difference in weight classes.  Cro Cop doesn’t want to cut to 205, it seems.  Someone should remind him that Alistair Overeem is considering signing on as a heavyweight.  See if that doesn’t change his mind while also creating an ache in his loins.

And the stock market dropped like Tito Ortiz in a Lidell fight.

If I was handing out shirts, you'd be getting one. That made me chuckle!

"Kimbo's A Bitch" Tito must have fucked your girlfriend or something. Either that or you are in love with Dana White. Which would explain your hatred for one of the most fan friendly fighters ever.

on the first full day of his presidency, barack obama finally unveils his secret plan to jumpstart the economy...

Truuust me... You do not want Fedor to take off the sweater... His sweater was knitted by his creator and it works as a tool that makes him civilized among the civilized... When he takes it off, all hell breaks loose... Kinda like that movie, unleashed, but instead of a leash, EEETZA SWEATERRR!!!

CroCop will be back in the UFC, and I fully expect him to start tearing through some people...... if he gets smart and drops to 205.

Forget Mark Coleman, the UFC needs to sign that sweater to fight Cro Cop.

If it makes it to the second round I agree with you completely. Crocop would pick him apart at will. The first 3 minutes of the fight Crocop will have his hands full. Coleman showed his shot is still quick while he has gas. That's all I'm saying.

rofl nice Fedor...

It's not a sweater, I believe this is his Symbiote...
Fedor Emelianenko- January 21, 2009 at 9:58 am
why for are you make fun of my sweater, cage potato? my babushka give this to me when i am 7. please do not make fun of this. i will like to sit on top of you and punching in your head and face, yes?

@Teila Tuli's Tooth
Dont kid your self. Had Shogun been in any kind of shape he would have put Mark away in the first round. Now dont get me wrong its not like I am a big supporter of Mirko but in a fight vs Coleman I take Mirko 10 out 10 times.
When its in the 2nd round and Mark is gassed out Mirko would be able to pick him apart. Shogun was doing that and he had nothing left.

That guy behind Tito looks like he is thinking :

"Bloody hell mate, it's the first televised XARM bout, and if they ring that f'king bell the sweater/symbiote is going to kill us all..."

Tito's like herpes, it never truly goes away.
Teila Tuli's Tooth- January 21, 2009 at 9:38 am
Coleman is no gimmie for Crocop. When he shoots early in the first round and g n p's Crocop against the cage he'll be in trouble. Not to mention Crocop has been the biggest flop in the UFC since Justin Thacker.

They filmed the bell ringing yesterday. He should wear that sweater to the ring on Sat.
Wand- January 21, 2009 at 9:27 am
Let Tito fight as a heavyweight, Coleman too.
mayhem420- January 21, 2009 at 9:27 am
So the UFC wants to book Coleman vs Cro-Cop? Talk about a gimmie for Mirko.
All he needs to do is show up in shape and he should win as long as he can out last Marks never ending tank of energy, which would be anything past the 4min mark of the 3rd round.
Just think about how much bigger Tito's head would be as a HW... either that or maybe the rest of his body would now match that melon head of his.

LMFAO hasslehoff of Germany
I'm sure he will be back though ,He does make them money so he's worth the headache - no pun intended

Dude, there's no David Hasselhoff-ing of Tito in Germany, let me be clear about that. MMA fans in Germany know Tito as good or as bad as in the States. And dislike him as much.
