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

Fight Now! TV Acquires Exclusive Rights to Ring of Fire MMA

Life Lesson: If you’re getting tattoos to look cool, but can only come up with “barbed wire + tribals + first name in graffiti”, you’ll look so much cooler without tattoos. Props:

You know how you felt when your friend found out that he got accepted into Princeton, and then you found out that you got accepted into the local D3 university? How you realized that your announcement was nowhere near as big as his, but hey, you still felt pretty good? Well, this is something like that: MMA Weekly reports that yesterday, Fight Now TV obtained the exclusive rights to Colorado based promotion Ring of Fire MMA.  

Don’t sleep on Ring of Fire MMA just because it may be the first time you’ve heard of it. Ring of Fire is the former stomping grounds of current UFC fighters Shane Carwin, Brendan Schaub, Donald Cerrone, Diego Sanchez and Duane Ludwig. The promotion is currently home to UFC/WEC veteran Tyler Toner, Serbian MMA fighter Bojan Velickovic, who won his contract with the promotion on Europe’s answer to The Ultimate Fighter, Put Ka Venronom Ringu (English: The Road to Ring of Fire), as well as Anthony Njokuani’s unfortunately nicknamed younger brother, Chidi “Chidi Bang Bang” Njokuani.

The promotion’s next event, tonight’s Ring of Fire 41: Bragging Rights, will be aired on Fight Now TV via tape delay. ROF 41 was set to feature a welterweight title fight between Brandon Thatch and Chidi Njokuani, but has been demoted to a non-title fight due to Njokuani missing weight by two pounds.

Full results of the weigh-ins, courtesy of MMAWeekly:

Brandon Thatch (169.8) vs. Chidi Njokuani (172.8)
Tyler Toner (144.4) vs. J.R. Sims (146.4)
Jason Lee (184.4) vs. Bojan Velickovic (185.4)
Ryan Martinez (259.8) vs. Brandon Endriss (264.8)
Brian Wood (145.8) vs. Jarred Mercado (145.6)
Vinnie Lopez (169.6) vs. Santana Martinez (168.8)
Justin Gaethje (158.2) vs. Kevin Croom (154.4)
Shannon Culpepper (135.4) vs. Lindsay Jones (135.4)
Cody Mumma (184.6) vs. Adam Gonzalez (181.6)
David Treanor (167.8) vs. Tito Solis (171)
Kirk Piatt (168.4) vs. Kris Hocum (170.4)

I'd love to watch this card tonight. However, the website has no information on what channel it's on, or an internet option. Almost as frustrating as trying to find "Press Row" on Sherdog.

Per the caption: totally on the spot normally, but I know that guy and he got those tats while serving time for curb stomping a guy half to death. Hell of a nice guy otherwise, though. Just a bad moment at a bad time in his past.
