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

EXCLUSIVE! “Gladiator” Is a Curse!


So, here’s something interesting I noticed while looking up fight records on Sherdog today:

Ross “The Gladiator” Pointon: 5-10-0

Greg “The Gladiator” Wikan: 11-13-0

Orlando “The Gladiator” Weit: 1-3-0

Gabriel “Gladiator” Santos: 4-5-0

You hear that, people? The ghost of Maximus — father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife — does not want you to cheapen his memory by using “Gladiator” as your nickname. If you do, he will curse you with a losing record. And he will have his vengeance, in this life or the next.

Please spread awareness.

Why is Ross Pointon still fighting?

What about Marcus "Maximus" Aurelio. He's kicking ass with an even more direct Gladiator reference as a nickname.

Not sure if fictional characters can have "ghosts." Then again, I don't know if actual people can have them either. Hmm.

Anyway, thanks for the heads-up. I'm changing my nickname to "Cinderella Man."
