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

CNBC to Air Another UFC Report Tonight, This Time Without the Words “Blood Sport”!

(Props: MMA Scraps)

Just a programming heads up, Potato Nation.  Tonight when your grandfather falls asleep watching CNBC’s grim recap of the day’s activity on Wall Street, you might not want to steal the remote from out of his mottled hands and risk waking him up in the middle of a WW II flashback. 

Instead, keep it locked for CNBC’s second special report on the rise of the UFC.  After the apparent success of “From Blood Sport to Big Time,” CNBC returns tonight with “Ultimate Fighting: Fistful of Dollars” at 10 pm EST.  In answer to your question, yes, a computer software program is writing these titles.  It’s a slight variation on the one that writes those purposely ill-informed newspaper articles on the scourge of this new-fangled human-dogfighting business.  Ask your grandfather about it when he wakes up.  Maybe he can make sense of the twisted logic.

I wonder why the UFC is counter-programming the special report with a replay of UFN 13: Florian vs. Lauzon... cant say I always follow Spike programming, so maybe thats a regular occurrence for wednesday nights, but that specific event seems awfully relevent to an attempt to garner interest in the title fight and bolster PPV buys in a lead-up to UFC 101.. kinda funny, imo

This is directly after the "special" on CNBC called Marijuana Inc: Inside America's Pot Industry.

Sound sliek they are going for an audience...

oh man, that dudes terrible... worst article ever... I think if you still call a remote control "the clicker", you are in no way capable of having an accurate viewpoint of anything past 1985.

You thought Funt's article was bad? Gallo's needs to be retracted from the Daily News immediately. Absolute garbage. Reilly lining his pockets or is he just that out of it that he doesn't bother to be a legitimate journalist anymore?

Peter Funt = Failwarp from 1996.

dude is more of a troll than a journalist.

I go back and forth when it comes to my thoughts on Dana, but regardless of what negatives can be said about him, you get a sense that he truly does appreciate the fans (and their money). This video seems to show that.

Ben had to throw a calm down article in there after all this Fedor and Spider fighting.
