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

Dan Henderson: Catchweight? LOL

“Gone to weigh in with Fedor, BRB.  -Danny”  PicProps:

Ladies and gentlemen, it is now an appropriate time to start geeking out about the next Strikeforce card — you know the one.    Fedor-Hendo goes down at the end of the month and every MMA diehard will be sitting on the edge of their seats to see two PRIDE legends finally come together. Will The Last Emperor regain his classic form? Will Henderson score a victory that would likely be the highlight of his career? Will Fedor’s hilariously bad website gain something new and terribly translated?

(Seriously; the website is worth a look.  Engrish motherfucker, do you speak it?  An excerpt: “2003 ?. After competitions with Sam Shilt (Holland) and Hiz Hiring (USA), Fedor had a wrestling with Antonio Rodrigo Nagiera; Fedor gained the champion title. Later he gained the upper hand over Kazyuki Fudgita (Japan) and Gary Gudridg (Canada).”)

When Scott Coker first announced the matchup, he said it would be a catchweight bout at 220 pounds — possibly a gambit to get Fedor moving down in weight. Henderson contradicted Coker, saying that according to his contract the fight was at heavyweight, all the way up to 265, so Fedor can go ahead and eat all the ice cream and pickled elk or whatever it is that those Ruskies eat up there in Antarctica.

According to a new interview with MMAJunkie, Hendo says catchweight have always seemed kind of lame to him, he’s not scared of the big boys, and he’s not packing on any weight for the Fedor fight. Henderson has famously always walked around close to two hundred pounds, and when asked about his weight for the fight, Henderson said, “I think I have to weigh-in over 206, so 206.1, I guess. I was excited for the fight, in general, and I don’t care what he comes in at. I’ve never agreed with catchweights in the past, and I’m OK fighting up, so it is what it is.”

Translation:  “230 pounds of Fedor don’t scare me; tell him to pack a lunch.”

Go ahead and share your predictions and thoughts on the fight.  If Fedor loses, will he retire?  If he wins, will he make his way down to light heavy?  Will Henderson score the victory that Randy Couture chased for so many years?  Will Mauro Ranallo compare Henderson’s fists to the Chernobyl meltdown?  All will be revealed on July 30.

I legitimately do not see anything funny about the article or comments section. There were clearly no jokes because nobody said "knock knock"

Take note boys, Rex just showed you motherfuckers how to humourously deal with those that lack that very quality.
pietaster- July 6, 2011 at 9:26 am
Yeah, lay off Rex fuckers. Hes trying to be funny. Fedor has way more weapons. I bet he takes it with a Knock down to submission.ndsNews string

That map is old, it doesn't show iRock and Afghan Stand.

Neither one seems likely to get knocked out, so that leaves submissions and the fight going the distance. With the size difference Hendo will have a hard time getting a submission. Fedor will be a little slower, so I don't see him getting a submission either.

Hopefully Hendo has Randy in his corner, no one strategizes like him.

Prediction: Hendo wins by decision in a fight reminiscent of Franklin vs. Vanderlai.

Jesus Christ, everyone complains that this site isn't funny enough then Rex writes a piece of fried gold like that and everyone tries to display their geographic superiority.

When is Hendo gonna answer our questions for Breakfast with a champion?
Kimbos Bread- July 6, 2011 at 7:05 am
Hendo is gonna get it in his end-o.

Frito >> Everyone knows that Antarctica is the capital of The Arctic, which is so named because that's where Noah landed after the great flood. (He dropped the dragons off then.) When he retired, he took the name "Santa Claus" from the local Russian population, which roughly translates to "a whale's vagina". i'm not sure where all this confusion comes from, since you can see all this stuff (including Fedor's stargate to eternia) from Upper America. it's all right there on the map. Sheesh.

Rex13: Your map shows clearly that Dragons come from the Antarctic. Santa comes from the Arctic. Please learn to read maps, kthx <3
ReX13- July 6, 2011 at 6:46 am
This just in: Fedor is fighting out of Eternia.
ReX13- July 6, 2011 at 6:42 am
yrebil >> isn't that where kangaroos and fatbelly frank are from?
FaH Q NL15- July 6, 2011 at 6:39 am
Nicholas and I accept your appology for such asinine, and im gonna call racist cuz fuck it, remarks.
BigBaldJosh- July 6, 2011 at 6:38 am
Im a little torn with this fight- I really am a fan of both fighters but sadly I dont know it there is enough in Fedors tank - not that Hendo is a spring chicken but I think he has kept his body in better shape and it seems to me like it is starting to have an effect on The Last Emperors performance. How ever it ends I hope we get a highlight KO gif like the Fedor-Fatblackwomenbeater fight
ytrebil- July 6, 2011 at 6:37 am
yeah come on Rex old chap, we know you meant the ARCTIC.
FaH Q NL15- July 6, 2011 at 6:34 am
RX- Santy Clause Ain't No Commie Goddamnit!! ur map even says so, my guess is the elves have connections w. north korea
Stak40- July 6, 2011 at 6:28 am
Sorry Rex but YO boy is a done dizzle!
knucklesamitch- July 6, 2011 at 6:20 am
"smelly people with big hats"...Hilarious.
knucklesamitch- July 6, 2011 at 6:18 am
Either way, the ending is going to be sad.
ReX13- July 6, 2011 at 6:17 am
Frito >> According to this map, commies and santa claus come from the same place. We accept your apology.
DirtehSneakehs- July 6, 2011 at 6:05 am
We may very well see Henderson get savagely knocked out for the first time, it gives me the chills.
Fritolay- July 6, 2011 at 6:02 am
"Fedor can go ahead and eat all the ice cream and pickled elk or whatever it is that those Ruskies eat up there in Antarctica."

Up there in Antarctica? You guys might want to go look at a map...
