Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Travis Lutter Wants His Damn Money

Our friend Ariel at MMARated did an audio interview with Travis Lutter shortly after he was cut by the UFC, and if you’re curious about where “The Serial Killer” goes from here you should give it a listen. Lutter still sounds a little dazed by his layoff — and bitter that he was cut while other two-time-losers like Kendall Grove are still in the mix — but there were some interesting revelations. For example:

— After his dismissal, Lutter e-mailed Dana White about the $36,000 that Xyience still owes him. That e-mail has not yet been returned.
— When he said that fans of MMA suck, he was specifically referring to the ones that send him hate mail; according to Travis, the only person who deserves that kind of hate mail is Osama Bin Laden. [ed. note: I know, right? If only we had his address!]
— Since his firing, he’s been called by the IFL and HDNet/Affliction; he’d love to fight Matt Lindland.
— Lutter still doesn’t know why he gassed against Rich Franklin. He also hasn’t watched the fight yet, because he doesn’t feel like it.
— He says “y’know” more than maybe anyone else in the world, ever.

Lutter ain't the only one looking for cash. He needs to get in line or get a lawyer and file into bankruptcy court to get his moolah like the rest of us. Tell you what, if I win my summary judgment motion on May 14th at the hearing, I'll write out a check for him.

(I'm going to lie and sound important like some of the posters on this site)
I train with Travis and I can personally tell you that he works his butt off! You show me another person on this PLANET that can do 37 sit ups and 19 pushups-in a row!- and then down the Grande Meal all by themself and I'll shut up.....

Lutter wants to talk about Xyience owing him money? I think he owes the fans that saw those last couple of PPV fights their money back too.

Lutter obviously has a lazy work ethic & a ego chip on his shoulder to boot , He strikes me as the tepremental moody type that 's a brat.

Fuck Lutter!

I still think lutter is a good fighter, if he had any endurance at all, he would have beatten Silva and Franklin.

"He also hasn’t watched the fight yet, because he doesn’t feel like it."

The reason he hasn't watched the fight yet is because his fat ass gassed while trying to operate the remote.

Dude Travis, I don't think you're getting that 36 grand.

First off, Travis looks as sleepy in that picture as he did in his fight with Franklin.

Second, damn, he does say "ya know" a lot!

Third, someone owes you $36,000 and now you bring it up? Man, some shmoe owes me 36K, that bastard's phone is gonna be ringing EVERY GOD DAMN DAY....

....because I'm Irish and very cheap.

Fourth, did Franklin break Lutter's nose? 'Cause on that audio, he sounds like he has Randy Couture's dirty adult-diapers shoved up his nose.

All said and done, I do like Lutter and I feel bad that he got cut. I think, even though he didn't make weight, his battle against Anderson Silva is awesome. He came VERY CLOSE to beating Silva.

I'd love to see Lutter vs Lindland on the card for the Fedor vs Sylvia fight!
