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

Is Junior dos Santos Looking Past Cain Velasquez?

(Caution: This conference call was apparently recorded in a tin can headed straight for Pluto. Adjust speakers accordingly.)

For a guy who is supposed to be defending his title against Cain Velasquez in just over a week at UFC 155, heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos still seems awfully focused on Alistair Overeem, the man he was set to face back at UFC 146 before…well, you know. During the UFC 155 media call (full audio above), dos Santos touched on the respect he had for Velasquez as a professional, but not without taking a dig at Overeem in the process:

I prefer to fight against clean athletes and real professionals. Cain Velasquez is one of these guys. He’s a real professional fighter and that’s a good challenge for me. I know he’s very tough and I know how hard I have to train to face him. And the OTHER GUYS, they just say things, but there’s nothing behind the words. Guys like me and Cain Velasquez, we are made at the gym. Guys like the OTHER GUY there, they are made in the laboratory.

Ahh…the Lord Voldemort approach of anonymity. Touche, Junior.

All kidding aside, Junior has repeatedly stated that he would have preferred to face Overeem next instead of rematching Velasquez, even begging Dana White for the fight at one point. And while he was able to dispatch Velasquez with ease the first time around, does anyone think he might be looking past Cain here?

And while we’re talking UFC 155, we’d like to throw a little feeler out there for you guys to stew over. Greater chance of ending in a knockout: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez or Leben vs. Brunson?

Women are cheating all over the place, nowadays! (Leann Rimes/Cibrian, Coco/IceT, Kristen Stewart, Suzy Favor Hamilton the Olympian & Vegas call girl, Rita Ora/Rob Kardashian, Petraeus women).

My latest book, "I Steal Wives: A serial adulterer reveals the REAL reasons more and more 'happily married' women are cheating" is a powerful look at this EXPLOSIVE topic of female infidelity. And the REAL reasons aren't the typical blather you hear on talk-TV or read in the SECOND-HAND information of some psychologist's self-help book. It’s now in the top 1% of books selling on Amazon!

The book is the FIRST BOOK EVER WRITTEN on female infidelity from the FIRST-HAND, insider experience of a serial adulterer, who cheated with the wives/girlfriends of over 25 married men (and a few women), and who also happens to be a therapist (never cheated with clients)! "I Steal Wives" is a salacious, self-deprecating, at times funny, and penetratingly insightful look into what is now the very cutting-edge of relationships.

It's the relationship version of "How to Secure Your House, as told by a professional burglar!" This is no joke, the raw truths of “I Steal Wives” will forever change how you do relationships and understand women, especially if you are one!

Check it out now at Amazon and Barnes and Noble!! It's selling FAST!

well south means bad and of less worth, and he is a gangster because by humanizing cain he would look (and deep inside feel) worse; so by saying this in such a context he can describe him in a familiar but derogatory way. and then others are supposed to generalize something similar, if more hateful so he can feel vindicated. Its just fear man. and no i'm not mexican.

Southside cholo? Not that Cain is a gangster or anything, but you might wanna double check your map/watch some Gang Wars on Nat Geo. Pretty sure San Jose is Norteno territory.

Both will be k.o.'s, but the more brutal KO will go to the JDS-South Side Cholo winner....which will be Cigano....then Overroid- I mean Overtestosterone- will claim what he thinks is rightfully his

Both will end by KO.
