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

Grove vs. Maia, Bonnar vs. Pokrajac Added to TUF 12 Finale in December

(Stephan Bonnar: He will stand there all day like that.)

The finale show for The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck — slated for December 4th at the Palms in Las Vegas — just picked up its first two official matchups. According to a press release sent out by Spike this morning, the event will feature a middleweight contest between former title contender Demian Maia and TUF 3 winner Kendall Grove. Maia most recently outpointed Mario Miranda at UFC 118 in Boston, while Grove is coming off a split-decision win over Krzysztof Soszynski (also at UFC 116) when he meets Igor Pokrajac, the man responsible for choking James Irvin out of the UFC. With his 1-2 Octagon record, Pokrajac isn’t exactly a step up in competition for Bonnar after the K-Sos fight. But it’s a fight that Bonnar can win, and if you don’t like seeing Bonnar win fights, we have one question for you: Why do you hate America so much?

Related: According to an MMAJunkie report, the TUF 12 Finale will also host a welterweight battle between Johny Hendricks (9-0, 4-0 UFC) and Rick Story (11-3, 4-1 UFC).

Bonnar is like a 90's martial arts VHS star that somehow survives in the future.

Simple reason I dont want to see Bonnar win this fight is bcuz Im a Croatian.

Maia v Grove. Love it.

Bonnar v Igor. Love it.

I've been to a bar to watch UFC fights only once, and it was the Broids v Caroids fight. People went absolutely APESHIT, myself included, when Bonnar and Fatherless Bastard won their fights. That was good stuff, you guys.

I'm surprised Bonner's testis haven't entered this discussion yet ... I mean he's constantly claiming their huge.

God &*$%^* Damn it ... looks like they just did

Bonnar's fights have been fun for the past 4 years. The only semi-boring ones were vs Rashad and maybe Coleman but those were the fault of those boring wrestlers, not Bonnar.

Also it may not be a step up but he's 1-3 in his last 4 fights and Igor's 1-2 in his last 3. To imply that they're not on the same rung of the ladder right now shows much ignorance with respect to proper match-making.

@SnakeJake only if you're ok with the fact that I watch the Royal Rumble every year

@snakejake: I've got a snake that would be very interested in this proposition.

@DaltonSwayze: We should have a bromance and watch Bonnar win all his fights together.

Bonnar is awesome, and they should only match him up with bottom-feeders so we can all feel warm and fuzzy when he wins
