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

Extended Video Previews for UFC 100, Affliction: Trilogy, and “Ultimate Chaos” (a.k.a. Lashley vs. Sapp)

(Props: MMA Mania)

What: UFC 100
When/Where: July 11th at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
Why: Because it’s one of the most stacked UFC cards ever. In the above trailer, Joe Rogan calls the event "fucking insane," then implies that Steve Mazzagatti screwed up Brock Lesnar‘s first fight against Frank Mir. For Brock, this fight is all about revenge. Mir thinks that if Big Nog couldn’t last two rounds with him, Brock’s chances aren’t very good.

In the night’s other title fight, Georges St. Pierre battles for his legacy against the biggest, strongest, toughest test of his career — Thiago Alves, who wants to knock out GSP, take his belt, and become "the man." Also, Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping move out of the reality show set and into the Octagon. Hendo wants to beat Bisping up and shut his mouth a little bit; Bisping wants to be responsible for the first KO loss on Dan’s record. Only on pay-per-viewwww…

What: Affliction: Trilogy
When/Where: August 1st at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
Why: Because Fedor Emelianenko is the best heavyweight in the world, and Josh Barnett probably isn’t going out as easily as Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski. Plus, Gegard Mousasi will get a chance to prove if he can be just as dominant at light-heavyweight when he takes on the always-dangerous veteran Renato Sobral.

(Props: BloodyElbow)

What: Ultimate Chaos
When/Where: This Saturday, June 27th, at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Why: Because there’s pretty much nothing else going on this weekend. The organizers of Ultimate Chaos are asking you to pay $29.95 for a pay per view card headlined by Bobby Lashley vs. Bob Sapp and Pedro Rizzo vs. Gilbert Yvel, with a supporting card that features Din Thomas, Chris Horodecki, and yes, Tom Atencio. An oddly reserved, out-of-character Bob Sapp tells us about Beast-style, and Lashley says he’ll work some takedowns, wear Sapp down a bit, and ultimately knock him out. He says that the fight will be a train-wreck, in the sense that it’ll be like two big trains crashing into each other, not in the sense that it’ll be a sloppy embarassment to the sport. Sapp reminds Lashley that this isn’t wrestling — it’s real fighting, where middleweights occasionally tap out super-heavyweights. Catch it live on pay-per-view the next morning on CagePotato!

@ Videodrome_NOW

Sorry, the implication was that Sapp would gas out when the omoplata attempt fails. I'm not a fan of the beast but I see how you read it that way.

I dont even know who I hate more out of Brock and Frank. We all know Brock is a douche, and I'm not sure whether its down to editing or not but Mir comes off like a cocky prick all the time. cba with either of them. Cain or Carwin will pound out either.

Affliction needs to get someone other than Tom Atencio to hype their fights. He makes one of the most anticipated heavy weight matches ever sound like an extremely boring history lecture.

Is bob sapp seriously talking trash??? Ive seen that man tap from getting hit in the face just 1 time, getting submitted by middleweights.... and his highlight is against a dude exactly half his size. i hope bobby breaks his face

Sickest fight is going to be GSP vs Alves. Looking forward to that over any others.
Young Vagabond87- June 22, 2009 at 7:09 pm
lol .. it's a good thing you guys are covering the lashley vs. sapp fight.
i wasn't goin to waste money on that

Thanks for mentioning the "only on pay per viiiieeeewwww". Sometimes MMA makes me feel less of a person for being a fan with commercials like that and a bunch of really fat or really skinny guys with affliction or tapout shirts at the bar.

@UFC fan
- wow, thats amazing that you are "actually going to BUY the PPV for UFC 100"..congrats, you are really keeping that infant industry afloat with your 44.95 purchase. Thank god for you, maybe now they will be able to limp to UFC 150.......Eat shit! Eat my shit! Now lemme get that bread

@ Clyde or anyone else that thinks Bob Sapp is worth anything....

The only fight I would ever watch Sapp in is a fight with Mike Tyson. Other than that, no point!
UFC fan- June 22, 2009 at 2:37 pm
I am actually going to BUY the PPV for UFC 100.
It is special, and it is a milestone I will keep for a really long time.
Fuck those other shows they have NOTHING I want to watch.
UFC rules.....nay .......DOMINATES!!!
Clyde- June 22, 2009 at 1:52 pm
Interesting point Bob... I can't wait to see Lashley's face when Sapp catches him in an omoplata from the rubber guard after the first takedown. Or gasses out if he can't KO/TKO him in the first 2 minutes.
Shatski- June 22, 2009 at 1:38 pm
Man, did Atencio just not say anything of value in that promo or what? He didn't tell us anything that we didn't already know about Fedor or Barnett. They had really limited footage, too, since Zuffa has the old Pride tapes. It kind of hurts him that he doesn't seem as passionate about hyping his product like Dana or Rogan is in the UFC 100 promo. Seems like he's not a great speaker, so it couldn't hurt to find a mouth piece for the company that is charismatic and knowledgeable. Assuming they'll be around long enough for that to matter.

Wait a minute... Heath Herring was suppose to be a very tough fight for Lesnar? The same Heath Herring that Jake Obrien schooled all over the cage? The same Heath Herring that struggled out wrestling Kongo? The guy who is taylor made to be beaten by any big dude that can wrestle? Wish someone had clued me in on that cause my stupid ass was expecting Brock to steam roll his ass. Guess I just got lucky with that assumption. Either that or the hype machine is hard at work again.
Dubbayoo- June 22, 2009 at 1:16 pm
Mir ruined Lesnar's very first debut? And Dana, I don't think it's very hard for this fight to go to ground.. which will likely ruin Lensar's fourth debut..

@ MyFightWiffaCheeto:

Laughing My Perfect Round Ass Off?

Dude, I really hope you're a chick or I'm gonna have to skip lunch today due to a violent fit of vomiting.

Wonder if Ultimate Chaos is expecting more buys than March Badness...over under for 5000 buys?

"Catch it live on pay-per-view the next morning on CagePotato!"

LMPRAO... I love you guys.

I am really curious how Lashley is progressing. I hope he does well. He has a great head on his shoulders and I feel like he's on the right track to eventually enter the UFC and become a real force.
