Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Dana White Puts Kendall Grove’s Ass on Notice

(Well, at least you and Rude Boy will finally be able to open that taco stand you’ve been talking about for the last five years. Again, props to CombatLifestyle.)

Though he was successful in his last performance — a split-decision victory over Evan Tanner at the TUF 7 finale last June — Kendall Grove‘s previous back-to-back losses still seem to be fresh in Dana White’s mind. As the UFC prez told USA Today, in regards to Grove’s UFC 96 matchup with Jason Day:

"If Kendall loses this fight, he could be the first-ever TUF winner that’s no longer in the UFC."

It’s cool, Dana — we forget about Travis Lutter sometimes, too. Anyway, that’s what we call "tough love." Is it possible that DW is suggesting that Da Spyder’s job is on the line just to add another hook to Saturday’s show, which has very little heat behind it right now? Grove had better win, just in case his boss backs up his words.

Also in the USA Today article, Dana expressed frustration at Keith Jardine‘s recent comments that he wouldn’t fight his friend and teammate Rashad Evans for the UFC’s light-heavyweight title if he was given the opportunity:

"I disagree with that. And I have to their face many times. This isn’t basketball or football. You’re not part of a team. Do you want to be the champ? If Rashad’s got that belt, what are you going to do — sit your whole career out and wait for Rashad to retire? Their careers are going to cross paths. And when they do, they’re going to have to fight."

It is aggravating when team alliances get in the way of compelling matchups (see also: Anderson Silva staying out of the light-heavyweight division because "this belt belongs to Lyoto"), but you can’t force people to fight each other. Danny Trejo tried that once, and wound up getting shot in the gut by Ken Shamrock‘s wife. You just never know how people will react when their backs are against the wall…

You guys talk a lot of shit online about hawaiians but you NEVER say anything face 2 face. Youre cowards! Little bitches! Grow up already. Ive never in my life seen a white guy go up to a hawaiian and say anything to piss him off cuz you know youd get your ass handed to you! The only thing you can do with your hands is type and jerk off cuz you definately aint throwing blows with any hawaiians.. atleast youre smart enough to know not to do that!

aaaaanyways.. that being said.. is Kendal even hawaiian? Does anyone know? He always says he's hawaiian but his parents dont look hawaiian at all and neither does he. And Bj too sometimes he says he's hawaiian and sometimes he says hes not. No one in hawai'i will care we'll still love and support them both no matter what just cuz theyre from the islands but its kinda jacked up that ppl get on mayhems ass about not being hawaiian but they dont say anything about kendal and bj.. atleast mayhems not lying and saying he's hawaiian!!!

It' funny, you all talk shit about all these people, when all you guys are doing is sitting on your asses. Get a life or a job. And by the way, I've been to Hawaii and trust me hawaiians are not lazy. I dare anyone to walk up to a hawaiian and say that! That's what I thought! Bunch of ignorant fags!

nothing BUT UFC matters. all other organizations are a flea circus compared to with it moron.
The mind- March 6, 2009 at 3:44 pm
This is why the UFC will never be total legit mainstream. Dana White has too much power the matches and rankings should be from an independant organization. The fighters should create a Union and fight this meatball! Just rediculas way to screw up for your organization! making money doesnt make you legit Dana. You want Sports Center hand it over to a legit organization for fights and rankIngs!

If I was to fight that halfwit Grove, I would aim every punch at that weird projecting breastbone of his.... Can't he go to a blacksmith and have it filed off or something? It is creepy looking.
By the way, I hereby challenge Old Bald and Irish to a drinking contest!!!! O.B.I., I am in heavy training, and I can presently down three quarts of Black Velvet whiskey in less than one hour without passing out. Top THAT!!!

Dana does not seem to be the kind of guy who does not back up his words. So KG, you better win if you do not want to join the league with WAR Machine. Also, Although I love to see Whitey win, I hope Rampage knocks Keiths teeth out. I want to see a Rampage-Evans fight.

UFC fan has to be TUF Guy too. Their can't be that many complete Tard's in the world.

who the fuck is kendall?

It's too bad Silva won't fight Machida. Stylistically, they're two very similar fighters, with the exception that Silva would kick the crap out of him, I'd say two rounds tops, regardless of the difference in weight classes.

I'm rooting for Jason Day, simply because I think Kendall's an idiot. If he we a real man he'd beef up and fight in a weight class more befitting his size. Of course, he'd get the snot beat out of him by any top 5 mw or lhw.

Rampage will destroy Keith Jardine, but Keith will still get fights in the UFC, just because he's good enough to keep around, and not good enough for a title shot.

Gonzaga and Carwin should be a good fight. In a slugfest, I pick Carwin. If it goes to the ground, it's Gonzaga. Not a bad card, not a great card... it's only $45, what the hell, why not.

Make Fun All You Will, But Look Who Da Spyder and Rude Boy Are hanging with!! It's dat blind guy from American Idol!!

You got that right. Kendall sucks balls and I can't stand his bullshit prancing and dancing that happens when he actually wins.

DA! Da Retard.

Taco stand, my ass.

He's gonna open up a White Castle and change his nickname to "Da Slyder"

And it's still cooler than "The Hater Hurter"
J-Dog- March 5, 2009 at 8:59 am
"Da Sphincter" might need his "dagger.. dagger..." That was the most annoying shit in that season of TUF, and that's why my favorite figher is whoever is fighting that skinny "dagger dagger" asshole.
Hexed79- March 5, 2009 at 8:46 am
At bare minimum, this should be a "win or change your nickname" bout. Honestly, Kendall Grove shouldn't be a part of anything that implies Anderson Silva.

Also, the irony of someone saying a variation of "First bitches"...

SMITH313- March 5, 2009 at 8:05 am
even if kendall wins he'll still get fired the only way he's keepin' his job is if he knocks jason day into jason night . it can not go the distance. or hes gone

He will not be missed if he is cut. Not by any means.
