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

Burnt Ends: Lindland, ChuckTV, Ali Sonoma + More

(An early trailer for the upcoming UFC video game.)

The boring but important notes and errata currently floating around this crazy MMA world of ours…

— THQ’s planned UFC video game has been give a rough release date of Spring 2009, which will coincide with “one of the UFC’s major events.”

— Affliction is reportedly close to locking down Fabio Negao as Matt Lindland‘s opponent at their debut event on July 19th. Negao (8-3) is a veteran of the Super Challenge and Fury FC promotions who last competed in December, losing to Rousimar Palhares via first-round leglock submission. (Translation: He’s kind of a scrub.) Pedro Rizzo, who’s fighting Josh Barnett at the event, claims that it will indeed take place in California, most likely at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

— The UFC is trying to distract its fans from the fact that a historic MMA event is taking place on May 31st by scheduling a Chuck Liddell-themed programming block on SpikeTV that night. At 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, Spike will premiere “Ultimate Iceman: Chuck Liddell,” a documentary chronicling Liddell’s life inside and outside of the Octagon. Directly following at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT will be “Liddell vs. Silva: UFC Unleashed – Special Edition,” featuring the UFC 79 fight between Liddell and Wanderlei Silva, which has never been broadcast on cable. The UFC might be clever, but I have a DVR, which makes me more clever.

— The WEC has already sold out nearly all of the 8,000 seats in the ARCO Arena‘s lower bowl for WEC 34: Faber vs. Pulver, and will be releasing tickets for seats in the upper sections for a quite-reasonable $35 bucks a pop. If you’ll be anywhere near Sacramento on June 1st, go get ‘em.

— Ali “#3″ Sonoma will be appearing on the fifth season of ABC’s The Mole, which premieres June 2nd. Catch a glimpse of her in the background on the promo vids at

Wonder if you can hook up the old Track and Field controller from Nintendo and play as Kalib Starnes and just run around the ring instead of fighting.

The quality of these games are fricking mind boggling. So much better than even a few yrs ago.

Poor Chuck. It must be a cold feeling watching your virtual-self make it look so easy to knock out Rampage; not to mention the obvious reduction in your misshapen belly. I wonder if they gave Forrest gorilla arms?
