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

“Day of Reckoning” Books Prince of Darkness

(“The Wizard” @ Ozzfest 2005)

TheMMANews and MMAJunkie are reporting that the music for Affliction’s second MMA event (October 11th, Las Vegas) will be provided by 59-year-old rock legend Ozzy Osbourne. Osbourne, who is sponsored by Affliction clothing, had been rumored to be the live performer at “Banned” in May, but Megadeth got the gig instead.

The heavy metal interludes from Dave Mustaine & Co. at Affliction’s debut card were criticized by many MMA fans, but I dig Megadeth, so their presence was fine with me, especially because they stuck to old classics and didn’t play any new material. As long as Ozzy stays away from “Mama, I’m Coming Home” and digs into the Black Sabbath songbook (i.e., “Iron Man,” “War Pigs,” maybe some “Sweet Leaf” or “The Wizard”), he should be good. Also, Andrei Arlovski is going to beat Josh Barnett via decision; you heard it here first.

Yeah, Affliction has too many gimmicks. I wish they'd be more like PRIDE was. You know, legitimate matches and subdued entrances. WTF?

I think the band thing is awesome. It's a hell of a lot better than watching promos for the next shitty upcoming fight card, or listening to Rogan and Goldie prattle on.

I think all MMA shows should be part concert, it's pretty kick ass. Even if it is over the hill rockers. I guess it could be worse, I hear NKOTB is making a comeback.

All the Megadeth haters may shut their mouths after this one. Personally, I like the artists they've signed -- just makes such good things even better.

And I got Barnett over Arlovski; I never agree'd too much with Goldstein anyway.

What would make that better is if Sabbath played DURING the fights! I usually just mute the commentators and put on some Black Sabbath and Slayer anyway.

It's just gimmick after gimmick with assfliction, which is why not only will they go out of business, they are one of the shittiest organizations in mma
