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

Couture vs. Vera’s Competition: Pacquiao vs. Cotto

(24/7 Pacquiao-Cotto, Episode 1. Props to HBO.)

Being obsessed with MMA doesn’t mean we can’t mark out for Manny Pacquiao once in a while. It’s hard not to love the guy. He’s a brilliant fighter who’s somehow managed to stay humble, he has a lovely singing voice, and he’s never publicly referred to our favorite sport as panty-wrestling porno for beer-drinkers. It’s almost too bad that we’ll be dutifully liveblogging UFC 105 tomorrow (Spike TV, 8 p.m. ET/PT), because we’re curious to see how Pac-Man does against WBO welterweight champ Miguel Cotto in their 145-pound contest at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. The Pacquiao/Cotto broadcast starts at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. on HBO PPV, so hopefully you live near a kickass sports bar that will be showing both fight cards at the same time. Check out the first installment of HBO’s 24/7: Pacquiao-Cotto above; Pacquiao fans, show some love in the comments section below.

You've proved your point, fellow D-bag.

Sorry, MMA isn't going to get any attention from me with an overall weak card vs. the fight of the year.

And I'm taking Cotto in a late round KO after wearing Pac Man down (rough, dirty, body shots).

Going to be an absolutely epic brawl either way.

Hey Angled Dangle, you may want to refresh yourself what constitutes trolling. Sort of like the recent trend of douchebags calling others douchebags.

I finish fights
skeletor- November 13, 2009 at 3:10 pm
Fuck you Abgled dangle! Boxing is the sweet scien.... just kidding I will be watching UFC.

Ugh, boxing. I just want pacman to punch mayweathers face in since he's too much of a pussy to let a real mma fighter do it.

...dang, watch a living legend past his prime fight a guy that never lived up to the hype/potential for free or... pay up to see 2 guys hang it all out for 12 rounds or 'till somone is ko'd...hmm

You're gonna liveblog a tape delayed event? If only there was a way for you to watch it live earlier in the day ...
shitbag- November 13, 2009 at 1:32 pm

Ha That's pretty funny Angled Dangle. You'll surely get a few.

"It's almost too bad that we'll be dutifully liveblogging UFC 105 tomorrow".

You know Bens, it's on free TV so maybe you can take a night off from liveblogging and watch Pac-man after all. Just sayin', who's gonna be reading UFC 105 tomorrow?

@ Machineboi, thats actually a legit point. :)
robthom- November 13, 2009 at 12:49 pm
Dont care for boxing too much, but pac's the man. Good luck to 'im.
Machineboi- November 13, 2009 at 12:49 pm
LOL .....I will be watching Pacman and Cotto. Im sorry but Randy and Vera is lame.....
nd k- November 13, 2009 at 12:46 pm
I'm a fan of both sports. Hopefully, the main event (sorry, Pacman vs Cotto is the main event for me compared to Couture vs Vera) will start after 11pm as usual and UFC 105 would be over by then. I'm going to order boxing PPV and watch UFC 105 until the main event starts. It might sound like a waste of money but it's Pacman vs Cotto!!!!
Angled Dangle- November 13, 2009 at 12:28 pm
(there's the bait, bite you god-damned trolls, bite)
Angled Dangle- November 13, 2009 at 12:26 pm
Disgusting, I'm watching UFC over this quote-unquote sporting event. To me, boxing was just invented to watch two homosexuals in flamboyant shorts stand close, staring into each others eyes, which often leads to hugging. MMA is a man's sport, screw that 12 round homo tango.
