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

Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard Both Suffer Injuries, UFC 130 Meeting Is Canceled [UPDATED] has confirmed that UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and #1 contender Gray Maynard have both suffered injuries in their training camps, and will not be able to face each other in their scheduled main event trilogy fight at UFC 130 (May 28th, Las Vegas). According to MMAFighting’s sources, Edgar picked up two broken ribs, while Maynard suffered a knee injury — especially unfortunate, considering that the UFC is planning to cover these sorts of injuries starting next month.

Quinton Jackson vs. Matt Hamill is now officially the main event of UFC 130. (Yeah, we know.) UPDATE: Edgar and Maynard will likely be out for 6-8 weeks, and could be re-booked for August or September. But check this out: According to, Edgar pulled out first, and Maynard was going to remain on the card against another top lightweight who he doesn’t seem to have a very high opinion of

As the story goes, the UFC contacted Anthony Pettis last week asking if he wanted to face Gray Maynard in the main event of UFC 130, and Pettis jumped at the opportunity.

They were going to have me fight Maynard on that card. I said yes to that deal right away. I guess it turns out that it’s not going to happen. I’m back to fighting Guida,” Pettis told “It sucks that he got injured, because it kinda puts the whole lightweight division back on standstill…For three or four days I thought I was going to fight on May 28 and now it’s just killing me, so I’m going to take it out on Clay Guida.”

Pettis and Guida will square off at the TUF 13 Finale on June 4th.

Bad news is putting this mildly. The fight I was looking most forward to is kaput.
Of course I knew this was going to happen being from the future and all, but still disappointing.
At least there's still Travis Browne vs. Stefan Struve & Jorge Santiago vs. Brian Stann & Thiago Alves vs. Rick Story.

Guida is 6-2 in his last eight, including a three fight win streak. Fight of the night win over nate diaz, fight of the year loss to diego, submission of the night wins over gugerty and most recently takanori gomi.

g-sot just lost to siver. had he won that, he's right up there. now he'll have to win a couple more. It's the same exact thing that happened to guida. Diego gets the decision and got to fight for the title, while guida had to rack up more wins.

While Jim Miller has won a bunch, they haven't been against to top guys. Kamal Shalorus? I appreciate Shalorus as a fighter out of Austin, but let's be real. That's not a guy to catapaults you to a title shot or contender match.

Yeah, but he's still won more fights and beaten more quality opponents than Guida, who's practically only beaten Raphael Dos Anjos. Regardless, i don't think Guida deserves this match-up.

Didn't sotiropoulos just get whooped by a no name german kick boxer?
SnackDaddy- May 10, 2011 at 6:41 am
How the fuck do you get two broken ribs while training, especially before such a big fight? You'd think they'd be more careful at this level.
Also, does anyone else think that Clay Guida doesn't deserve to be fighting a next-title-contender match already? I mean, guys like Jim Miller and George Sotiropoulos deserve that match.

Deep fried tacos for the win.
u can't pant a house gray. u also can't man up and fight the WEC lightweight champ, you shit-talking, herpes-having, superlative-sucking fuckstick.

Also, I totally agree that Gray maynard ducked the Pettis fight so he could hold out for another title shot. That type of mentality totally pisses me off. Your a fighter, so fucking fight somebody bitch! First Rashad pulls this shit and now Gray. It's becoming a fucking epidemic. When will these guys realize that it's better to be the "peoples champ" who puts on entertaining fights than it is to be the UFC champ who fights once or twice a year in boring, "play it safe", 5 round snooze-fests like GSP.
Joe-Say Aldo- May 9, 2011 at 5:47 pm
UFC 130 should be free on SPIKE now. The card is absolute garbage. Don't get me wrong, I know that anything can happen and some of the fights will surely be entertaining, but there is no title fight, no major grudge match (unless you count Mir vs Nelson, which I don't), no number one contender match (unless you count Rampage vs Hamill, which I don't). It's just a weak card. The fights may turn out to be great, but I just don't see myself shelling out 50 bucks for this one folks, sorry ZUFFA LLC.

Pen 15, that is terrible, yet I find myself laughing so hard I have tears coming this wrong?
Pen Fifteen- May 9, 2011 at 4:05 pm
I can't wait to see the barker videos with Matt Hammill hyping this as main event. 'I tink dat Wampage id a goot fita, but, I'm pwetty suh my wettling id going to be da diffwence in dis fight.'

good point uzitotinbaby.
uzitotinbaby- May 9, 2011 at 3:14 pm
This card just went from great to "eh." I think when this happens the UFC should lower the PPV price. Think about it, you don't pay a flat rate for a Ford just because of the brand name. You pay more for a F-150 than a Focus for good reason, it's a better vehicle. The UFC should price their product similarly. $50 for a top shelf event is fair. $50 for this card, not so fair. Completely unrealistic, I know, just wishful thinking.
LET IT RAIN- May 9, 2011 at 2:50 pm
yet another evasive tactic by Frankie Edgar. And it really is a no brainer that Maynard and Rashad are buddies is it? you fucking pussy Maynard. You talked all kinds of shit about Pettis, then fake an undisclosed injury to keep the championship bout, and not fight Pettis? You could learn a thing or two from this kid about being a stand up dude. It sucks that your wet blanket tactics still exist even outside the cage.

Dana said on a conference call today with Showdown Joe that both Edgar and Maynard will be "taken care of", so it looks like they will be covered under the new insurance policy.
ccman- May 9, 2011 at 2:26 pm
e Shennanigans. Yes I'm calling
shennanigans. Maynard just backdoored the shad "duck nontitle fights" rule. Id give 200 to 1 if edgar was still in he would fight. Petis is all risk no reward. Puss, couldn't finish last time and know u can't now.
dim mak- May 9, 2011 at 2:25 pm
pretty weak card now.

Who would've thought they'd both mess up their cycles at the same time?
Clyde- May 9, 2011 at 2:10 pm
Crap. This was the first Gray Maynard fight I've ever looked forward too.
MyDogAteKarma- May 9, 2011 at 2:01 pm
This fucking sucks!!! For so many reasons. I and others really wanna see this fight, on top of that After all the shit Gray has been talking about Pettis, I wanna see that fight. Now the PPV that I was drooling over is now being headlined by a fight that just boggles my mind. Why not Hamil/Davis and page/evans 2.
RwilsonR- May 9, 2011 at 1:54 pm
At least they both can fall back on that new accident insurance that kicks in......... oh, sorry guys.
blackboxmma- May 9, 2011 at 1:49 pm
i dont think talking shit about Pettis is going to pan out for Gray.
