Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Dana White Eyeing NYE Show in Toronto Featuring GSP vs. Koscheck Title Bout

Part 1
(Video courtesy YouTube/WrestlingObserver)

During a media scrum prior to the UFC 114 press conference, UFC president Dana White revealed that,  contingent on sanctioning happening in Ontario, he is hoping to hold a December event in Toronto, which will feature a championship match-up between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and his rival coach from The Ultimate Fighter 12, Josh Koscheck.

Considering affirmations by both White and new director of Canadian operations, Tom Wright were made at last week’s press conference that the promotion will likely hold its first event at Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome), the event could potentially draw as many as 70,000 attendees, which is around the number Wrestlemania 18 did at the venue in 2002.

Hopefully the calibre of card is relative to the amount of live gate the show will garner. If it is, we could be treated to an event that eclipses the epic PRIDE NYE shows we were spoiled by in the past.

Yes, it's true, NYE is an American holiday. Let me give you a history lesson, since you're new to the Internet, and life in general.

George Washington and Abraham Lincoln met up with Pocahontas on the banks of the mighty Mississippi, and declared themselves independent from the Chinese calendar. Pocahontas suggested New Year's Day should be the same day as Thanksgiving, but that was a dumb suggestion, so they pushed her into the river. Her bitch-ass crying afterwards was called the Trail of Tears, but that's another story. Also, she was an Indian and a woman, so her opinion didn't really matter anyways.

So, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, in their infinite wisdom, declared the January 1st would be New Year's Day, because that just makes the most sense. Duh. Parliament voted against it, but Congress voted for it. A big war later, Congress won, and that's why we celebrate New Year's Eve, the night before January 1st. Everyone else is a copycat, including Canadia.

I'd say "you're welcome", but I don't expect any thanks from a fucking NOOB!!!!1!1!

If DFW likes us, thats all that matters.

And unfortunately, Joe Dirt and Misanthropy, the majority of our beers here down under have gone the same way, everyone seems to be going for these 3.5% mid strength brews which are pretty much interchangable. I personally mainly drink a Tasmanian Apple Cider called Mercury draught whcih I fucken love, 5.2% really crisp, perfect on a hot day, and we get plenty of those in Nth Queensland.
fatbellyfrank- June 1, 2010 at 7:11 pm
Mr Misanthropy, have a look at some of the czech beers, they have a few, (dont ask me the names, my cousin just hands em to me) that would fit your taste buds, its a more pilsener style
Joedirt- June 1, 2010 at 7:09 pm
Mr_Misanthropy... that was a well thought out post. Dammit. Most of the best selling beers are similar and like you said tend to be watered down. The widely believed myth is that Canadian beer is stronger than American beer but it is not. Truth is though most areas in Canada are pretty much the exact same as America... with exception to accents there is no difference. Oh... except there is always about 5 Tim Hortons within 2 blocks in Canada.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 1, 2010 at 7:02 pm

Yes, I am a fan of beer from around the world. The only Canadian beers I have had that I really like are Phillips and Howe Sound, both form Vancouver Island. They both make some decent representations of various styles of beer. Le Fin du Monde is not bad. As far as run-of-the mill shit Kieth's is pretty good, Bohemian was alright, and I guess I wouldn't spit out Rickards if somebody handed me one and I was thirsty. The rest (kokanee, molson, labatt's, etc. etc.) suck just as much as other American piss-water (Budweiser, miller, PBR). A lot of the microbrews I have had tend to taste watery or like they burnt their malt, I like a crisp beer with a high hops and alcohol content, not sweet and caramelly. I shoot for the 7-9% varieties. You are woefully lacking in European imports (Belgians, German beers, etc.), although it seems like people are starting to realize this and the selection seems to be improving somewhat.

Ya show said something about a funnelweb and redback spider. I've punched out many spiders.... with the use of a shoe/tissue but those things have some potent bites. I still hate snakes, I mean seriously what the hell does a snake have to bite that requires venom that can kill 10 freakin elephants? Besides Oprah who is in Chicago anyway.
fatbellyfrank- June 1, 2010 at 6:50 pm
We got some nasty fucken spiders to, then you go for a swim and you've got to watch for Sharks and crocodiles, I'm surprised any of us go out the front door!!
We do however get beers from around the world and I gotta say, there are some fucken good American and Canadian brews on the market, and Misanthropy, I quite enjoy a frosty Budweiser on a hot day, but I sure would love to take a tour of all these little pubs and breweries you mentioned.
Perhaps we could nominate ourselves as judges in some of these beer brewing competitions
Joedirt- June 1, 2010 at 6:38 pm
I was gonna travel and work in Australia for a bit.... then I watched a show that said Australia has 9 of the 10 most deadly snakes in the world. FUCK THAT!
I love scuba diving and would love to hit the reef... but seriously.... FUCK THAT!
I hate snakes.
fatbellyfrank- June 1, 2010 at 6:30 pm
Depending on how much tequila you've consumed you can really try any combination, just tread careful when you bite the Crocodile, make sure you squirt the lemon in its eye
Joedirt- June 1, 2010 at 6:28 pm
Have you guys had BOTH American and Canadian beers?

oh and hockey... yes... Canada.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 1, 2010 at 6:06 pm
@ fatballsy

I heard you lick the platypus, bite the kangaroo, and then shoot the croc- or do I have that in the wrong order? I think there's salt involved in the equation somehow... We all know kangaroos are the best ice hockey players hands down.
john t- June 1, 2010 at 5:25 pm
I'd have to agree Joe Dirt, I'm from Portland and I'd confidently put our best beers against anything you got in Canada.
fatbellyfrank- June 1, 2010 at 5:11 pm
Who's got the best Ice Hockey team?, as an Aussie I'm curious, and Misanthropy, come down under dude, sex with Kangaroos and all the platypus you can eat!!
Mr_Misanthropy- June 1, 2010 at 5:08 pm
It's like a whirl shitstorm of shithawks up in here. I feel like I let the first shitbird fly, I don't know whether I should be ashamed or proud of my accomlpishitment. It's like I almost ignited the first all-white race war. Shitastic!


You do know that they make more than Budweiser and Miller, don't you? The Association of Brewers reports that of July 31, 2009 there were a total 1482 craft breweries (962 Brewpubs) (456 Microbreweries) (64 Regional Craft Breweries) in the United States. The Willamette valley of Oregon is world famous for having some of the best conditions for growing hops anywhere in the world. Portland has 46 different craft breweries operating within the greater metropolitan area, and many of those regularly win medals at international beer brewing competitions.
Joedirt- June 1, 2010 at 4:49 pm
Americans....... Canadians........... who cares? I am Canadian we have better beer, they have HBO, we have (or had in her prime) Pam Anderson, they have Megan Fox, we had Lennox Lewis, they had George Foreman, we have french people, they have rednecks, they have New York to sanction and we have Ontario.
fatassamericanscansuckit- June 1, 2010 at 4:41 pm
NYE is an american holiday? That is the dumbest statement of life. Canada has no business being in an unjust war, helping americans terrorists. Bring UFC to the Rogers Center and it will be the BIGGEST UFC IN HISTORY. It will trump anything ever put on in the US or else where around the world. I happen to like some americans, but there are dumb mother fuckers everywhere. For those that hate on Canadians even though you do not know any, by all means go ahead stayed in a closed bubble. Canadians are alot like Americans, but with better pronounciation of the english language, and higher intelligence. Btw, USA is crumbling from the inside and going down in flames daily.
PortlandMMA- June 1, 2010 at 4:30 pm
Lets just try and agree that not all American's are fat and illiterate and not all Canadians are boring dudes that drink the syrup. I am however, sure we can all agree that not all American's are as dumb as stak40 though.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 1, 2010 at 4:20 pm
@ Disco

Shit yeah! We could be the first Latino-ish gang on the moon. We could build a giant fence right across the middle of that shit and then tag it up all BLP (Barrios Lunas Padrinos) so everybody with a telescope knows to stay the fuck off our block, esse.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 1, 2010 at 4:11 pm
@ Dog Park Tree

Just to clear a couple things up: you guys who guys? I just paid enough taxes to stay out of jail, I didn't have a whole lot of say as to what was done with the money after. I'm not too impressed with anybody's government, military (I've known lots of cool people in the military, they just have a somewhat whack job), police forces, giant multi-national corporate conglomerates, or greedy rich people. Every country has them and they all generally suck to varying degrees. One difference between other countries and the US is that other peoples' governments suck only for them while the US government tends to suck for the whole world.
Joedirt- June 1, 2010 at 4:10 pm
A UFC event in Toronto will SELL OUT in record time, even if the main event was Liddell vs Ortiz 7, or Shamrock vs a random crossing guard or Tim Sylvia vs the world chicken wing eating champion.
If you don't believe me look up the maple leafs ticket prices and attendance rates.
With that said.... if you're American and within 8 hours.... I suggest the drive, Toronto is a fun city... and yes... our beer IS better.

@ Mr_Misanthropy

If you are neither stupid nor overweight, than we are at a stalemate: I am neither boring, nor a pussy. Your move, sir.

If you want, you can co-op my skills to build that spaceship, and we can embark on ambiguously gay adventures with Diego Sanchez as our quirky and eccentric - yet surprisingly genuine - sidekick, "El Astronatuo de Mexicano."
Mr_Misanthropy- June 1, 2010 at 4:01 pm
Hey, everybody, I just wanted to say that I was having a bad day and I'm sorry to start a bunch of shit. I hate nearly everything so it isn't really fair for me to lash out at any specific targets. I guess I'm just glad you worthless bastards put up with my shit because I don't have a whole lot to do right now. I'm sitting in purgatory-esque self-unemployment but I'm praying to the dark lord and his countless legions of infernal minions that it's almost over.

PS- I still hate Canada. Don't take it personal.
dogpt3- June 1, 2010 at 3:38 pm
@ Stack40 - You actually think that the reason we are safe is because you guys protect us? You guys are the biggest terrorists of all go eat a dick. I love how you went after Osama and ended up getting Sadam and people just totally forgot why they were at war in the first place.
