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

Hong Man Choi May Literally Kill Jose Canseco

(Don’t get used to it, buddy. By the way, those aren’t real tats — he’s wearing one of those queer-ass tattoo shirts. )

With his MMA debut coming in four days, you might be wondering what Jose Canseco has been doing to prepare for Hong Man Choi. After all, we’ve seen no photos or videos of him training at MMA camps, and he’s ignored every interview request from MMA news outlets (us included). It’s all a big mystery. Well, it seems like the real answer is the most logical one:

On today’s edition of Radio, co-host [Frank] Trigg said he "called around" and was disappointed to learn Canseco has apparently done little in the way of preparing for his May 26 DREAM.9 bout with 7-foot-2 kickboxer Hong Man Choi. "He hasn’t been doing anything," Trigg said. "Nothing. Nothing (MMA-related) for this fight. "He’s running on a treadmill."

As the story goes, Canseco recently asked Trigg for some 11th-hour help, but Trigg turned him down. Said Twinkle Toes: "Other MMA guys are saying, ‘Don’t associate yourself with the guy.’ Besides, Hong Man Choi is going to rip his [expletive] head off."

Let’s take a moment to ponder that very legitimate possibility. Jose Canseco is trying to parlay an 0-1-1 celebrity boxing record into success as a mixed martial artist, with zero MMA training to speak of. On the spectrum of "things a former pro athlete can do to generate income," I’ll admit that fighting Hong Man Choi is a slightly better idea than robbing a hotel room. But it’s still a terrible idea, in that Canseco could wind up seriously injured, and few people outside of hardcore MMA fans are even aware that this fight is taking place. Talk about poor brand management. I guess this is what happens when nobody wants to pay you for your autograph anymore.

If you watch Fedor vs. Man Choi, Fedor's face was bruised after just a few rubbish shots-nothing significant even landed. May God be with Conseco.

If CANseco lasts past the first round we'll know it's a fix.

No MMA training? what, is his martial art too d34dly? lol

(sorry Bullshido don't kill me)

Maybe he is WING CHUN :O

Canseco wins the Super-Hulk tourney, no doubt about it.

TKO win over HMC.
Submission win over Mousasi.
Head-kick KO win over Minowaman.

C'mon...don't act like Canseco is doing "nothing" in preparation.

We all know he's doing the only thing he's ever been good at: Steroids!!!

Danxxx: It's not how much you make, it's how much you SPEND, this guy lived a lavish lifestyle all over Florida, throw in a few divorces and child support and voila' it's MC hammer all over again.

ace328- May 22, 2009 at 9:02 am
I don't necessarily want him to die but if he was unable to speak afterwards that would be allright.
Titos Head- May 22, 2009 at 8:55 am

ken-mura- May 22, 2009 at 8:52 am
No expectation of winning... just getting paid.
ken-mura- May 22, 2009 at 8:51 am
I think VegasBJJ hit it on the head.
Old_Bald_and_Irish- May 22, 2009 at 8:47 am
Ha! Good one Cheeto!

Bonaduce is on the radio out here in Philly. His show is god awful. i don't know how he made a living at radio.
VegasBJJ- May 22, 2009 at 8:43 am
Seriously... he's going to step in the ring, take a few punches and/or kicks and fall to the mat. Easy money!

What's the over-under that Canseco even knows who Hong Man Choi is or what he looks like? Someone was probably like, "Hey Jose, wanna go fight a Korean dude for a couple G's?"

Jose's infinite wisdom led him to believe, hmmmm Korean, eh? Probably a little guy like Bonaduce... I can take him!

Conseco was on inside MMA talking a bunch a shit about what a bad ass he is i'm looking forward to seeing him get his ass kicked.
Nut Puncher 9000- May 22, 2009 at 8:24 am
I want to see a repeat of Don Frye Vs. Yoshihiro Takayama until Canseco's head caves like a deflated basketball. That way we can ensure that we never get "Celebrity MMA" on Fox fucking everything up.

Freakshow! This should take place right next to the bearded lady and the half man half gorilla show.
Swedish- May 22, 2009 at 8:07 am
Jose vs. Fedor next!

A matchup of Titans, an EPIC battle. Please Cox, make it happen
El Famous Burrito- May 22, 2009 at 7:49 am
Canseco by verbal submission.

Hong Man Choi smells the shit in Canseco's shorts and decides it's not worth it.
mmanouvelles- May 22, 2009 at 7:48 am
Hong Man Choi is far from great but he really could hurt Jose

He has faced in K1 or MMA names Like cro cop, Schilt, Hari, Fedor

I really hope this does not end up bad(Jose injured seriously) MMA will get all the bad press.
