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

Brandon Vera Pulls Out of Heated Rematch with Thiago Silva Due to Injury

Vera can’t stand to even look at that “Juice Monkey“.  (Pic:

The report we filed two days ago on the Brandon Vera-Thiago Silva grudge match is already woefully out of date. According to “The Truth”, he was so eager to ‘welcome’ Silva back to the Octagon that he jumped the gun and accepted the rematch before discussing the bout with his coaches or doctors. A consultation with his physician revealed that he wouldn’t be recovered from an injury in time for the May 15th fight.

The bad blood stems back to their UFC 125 bout. Silva showed incredible disrespect toward Vera, bitch slapping him repeatedly before playing him like a pair of bloody bongos. The humiliating loss earned Vera his walking papers, at least until he was un-fired when Silva’s post-fight urine sample tested positive for steroids.

Silva eventually copped to ‘roiding and was himself slapped with a hefty fine and one-year suspension. The rematch with Vera, scheduled to go down on the UFC on FX 3 card, would have been his first fight back from that suspension. Following a successful nose transplant, Vera rebounded with a unanimous decision win over Eliott Marshall at UFC 137, but he’ll now spend a little more time on the sidelines. Zuffa is currently looking for an alternate dance partner for the Brazilian.

@jimbonics- Good luck convincing anyone that it's your choice not to bang chicks with fake boobs.

Silva vs. Rampage would be a good banger.

And I, personally, am a huge fan of fake tits. And push-up bras.
Nitrous oxide is the best thing that ever happened to muscle cars.
Contact lenses are fantastic.
And steroids are a marvelous invention.

@dim mak: who are you kidding? Putting people's lives at risk?
We watched Pride for years with fighters juiced out of their minds. Nothing disastrous happened.
Pea-brained comments like yours show just how little you understand about what makes a fighter dangerous.
Yeah, the juice offers a small advantage. But not enough for anyone to get their panties in a wad.
Unless, of course, you're just fond of having your panties in a wad.

@JJ- that was like a "falling tree/lawn chair" hybrid.

I also can't stand porn with clearly fake tits (which most of them are). Some of the fakes they have nowadays are pretty nice though. Like it's hard to say no to Madison Ivy post-tit job after seeing so much of her pre-tit job.
jimbonics- February 4, 2012 at 4:00 pm
True story, I won't watch porn with fake tits. Wouldn't date a girl with fake tits. To this date, haven't screwed a girl with fake tits.
Fcuk a whole lotta that.

Vera, if you're reading this, and I'm pretty sure you've crept around in here before, you gotta start fucking throwing. Quit being timid, you won't lose your job if you go out there swinging, ie: Pat Barry. Got plenty of skills, lost the killer instinct. Now go bang your hot wife, and make us proud!

bootystar, we all realize that non-sequiter is your schtick, but when was the last time that someone got penis cancer from the silicone in someone's fake tits? You're comparing apples and oranges.
bootystar- February 4, 2012 at 3:28 pm
@dim mak, men don't watch porn unless the bimbos are fulla silicone
dim mak- February 4, 2012 at 3:14 pm
silva should've been banned for life. i wish the UFC would take a zero tolerance policy with PED cheats--they're putting people's lives at risk when the enter the ring juiced.
Anhonestmoose- February 4, 2012 at 3:07 pm
No arguments from me. His wins are generally over weak competition, and he gets crushed by the top tier.
RaginAsian- February 4, 2012 at 3:01 pm
@Anhonestmoose: Vera's meh decision wins/losses of the past 4 years show he has no business being in the UFC anymore.
Anhonestmoose- February 4, 2012 at 2:30 pm
Roids or not, that fight showed that Vera has no business being in the UFC anymore. He stopped evolving and lost his passion a long time ago. I'm glad the fight is off, because I don't see it going any different this time around.
newdeal- February 4, 2012 at 2:24 pm
Roids or not this will be a repeat of the first fight and he will be played as bongos again so its probably good for him to withdraw and wait until silva is booked so he can get an easier fight

Don't like Vera but hate Silva. Mocking you opponent while you know your on roids? Mirror mirror on the wall who is the biggest douche of them all?
