Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Hong Man Choi: Korean Superweapon?

(HMC: Sexual Napalm.)

Hey, how’s your news?

Hong Man Choi is scheduled to report for mandatory Korean army service next Monday, which may take him out of fight competition for three years. Apparently, his size prohibits him from being a regular soldier, so he’ll be stuck writing parking tickets and working the Xerox machine at a district office. Or so they want you to think!

— A match between UFC lightweights Spencer Fisher (20-4, 5-3 UFC) and Jeremy Stephens (13-2, 2-1 UFC) has been booked for the Ultimate Fighter 7 finale (June 21st, Las Vegas). Fisher most recently dropped a decision to Frankie Edgar at UFC 78, while Stephens has won his lost two UFC bouts against Diego Saraiva and Cole Miller. This could be the fourth match on the TUF 7 finale card that doesn’t include the show’s castmembers, after the Diego Sanchez/Luigi Fioravanti headlining bout and rumored matches between Josh Burkman and Dustin Hazelett, and Marvin Eastman vs. Drew McFedries. Could this be an early signal that many of the show’s finalists didn’t turn out to be worthy of getting a spot on the finale show?

— WEC bantamweight prospect Manny Tapia (10-0-1) injured his knee during training, and has been forced to pull out of his June 1st title bout against champion Miguel Torres (32-1). Yoshiro Maeda (23-4-2) has reportedly agreed to fill in, and will challenge Torres for the belt. Maeda is a veteran of Pancrase and DEEP, and was Pacrase’s first featherweight champion.

— Former UFC middleweight Terry Martin won his professional boxing debut on Saturday, taking out Ricardo Upchurch by TKO in just 40 seconds; with the loss, Upchurch’s pro record drops to 0-2. Roy Jones Jr., you’re next.

Is the woman in the picture trying to check out Hong Man's Choi?

Nah, dude. I'm aware that they won't release the line-up until the last episode has aired. But look: The TUF 6 finale had nine fights on the lineup, seven of which made the three-hour broadcast. Of those nine fights, only three fighters weren't on the show (Huerta, Guida, Goulet). In other words, they used 15 of the 16 castmembers on the finale card (everyone but Bowman).

Assuming they won't stretch the broadcast to four hours, putting eight guys (and counting) into the TUF 7 finale lineup eats into the number of guys from the show they can include. Who knows, maybe there's a reason for it. Pussies and posers rearing their ugly heads?

Or, it could be that the show just started airing and they don't want to release the card with members of the show until it is over. Otherwise, you know, we might put 2 and 2 together and figure out who is on top! Makes sense to me.

Where did they find such a tall lady?
