Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

It’s Official: Leben Out, Day In For UFC 85

(So is the implication here that he causes mushroom clouds, or just poses in front of them with his shirt off?)

The UFC today confirmed what we all suspected. Chris Leben has been pulled from his bout with Michael Bisping due to ongoing legal trouble that will keep him locked up throughout most of the month. Instead of scratching the bout altogether, they’ve tapped Jason “Dooms” Day as his replacement.

Day, a Canadian who’s coming off a TKO win over Alan Belcher when he filled in for Patrick Cote at UFC 83, is a solid replacement for Leben. He’s 17-5, riding a five-fight win streak, and better still, he’s not locked up in jail right now. In fact, the only major criticism we can think of for Day revolves around his nickname. When your last name is Day, you have a lot of options. It just seems like “Dooms” was the first thing they thought of, and the first thing is rarely the best thing.

All I’m saying is, Jason “Dooms” Day sounds like just another dude trying hard to come up with an intimidating nickname. Jason “Sunny” Day, on the other hand, that’s a guy might have a screw loose. Other options include Jason “Wedding” Day and Jason “Oh, It’s Such A Perfect” Day, to name a couple.

In any event, Bisping likes the match:

“Obviously I was looking forward to the Leben fight but I guess it wasn’t to be,” said Bisping. “You have to respect Jason Day for stepping in on even shorter notice than myself. I am looking forward to really putting on a great performance in London.”

“Jason Day looked bloody dangerous in his fight with Belcher and I think this fight has exactly the same potential as the Leben fight to be a real war”

I guess if you’re Bisping and you can’t beat up an American in your home country, a Canadian is the next best thing. With the UFC slashing away at their rosters in recent weeks, you can bet Day is feeling the pressure to turn in a strong performance here. Dana White loves nothing more than a guy who can step in on short notice and put on a good show. And if there was ever a time for an up-and-coming fighter to get on White’s good side, that time is now.

IM sorry I thought this thread was about Jason Day.......but it looks like I mistakenly clicked on " internet dickwads waving thier dicks at each other" thread.
Now Im sure all you gay boys enjoy that, but please hurry and suck each other off, and get back on topic.

WOW... everyone on this site must have small man syndrome. That or the infamous internet bully problem. Seriously, I can't look at any comments without seeing everyone bashing each other for the worst reasons... It's like I'm on without the racism.

Hey Canadian, the phrase you're looking for is "couldn't care less." To say you could care less about something means that you care, at least somewhat. To say that you couldn't care less means that you don't care at all, which is what you were going for. Yes, I am assuming that you're stupid. All evidence points in that direction.

K 2 things.... first off i hope Day has a good one and kicks Bisping's ass.... second i could care less about how much u all dislike big chris' smack talk attempts but I gotta call tim sylvia's pussy wet for the B.C.

How about Jason "Have a nice" Day, or Jason "Have you hugged your mom to" Day. He could use this as an advantage to get in peoples heads. I would be gettin all psyched up to fight the guy but then I'd be like ,`Gee I haven't called my mom in a while'.....Bam he would knock me out while I was feelin guilty...

Thanks Burns....that was nice!
Burns- May 8, 2008 at 10:13 pm
Big Chris is quickly going from just another internet asshole to someone who is probably greatly disliked by people who know him in real life. That wonderful combination of dumb and aggressively creepy. And what's that stupid website you link to?
BIG CHRIS- May 8, 2008 at 10:00 pm
Sarah wouldn't you like to know.....

I don't think Day can be feeling THAT much pressure. His first fight against Belcher was immediately translated into a second, longer contract. Even if he loses (to the UK poster boy), it's hard to picture Dana/the UFC getting too bent out of shape unless he decides to impersonate Starnes. At the post-fight press conference, White repeatedly said how impressed he was with Day, and now Day's taking a fight on short notice (another Dana like). If he fights hard - which he always does - he's got nothing to worry about, win or lose.

i'm developing this pet theory that BIG CHRIS is a very small guy.

it would explain the anger. and the caps lock issue.
BIG CHRIS- May 8, 2008 at 9:22 pm

Are you dead yet??
skidding- May 8, 2008 at 9:18 pm
I'm going to borrow a line from Credeur and say that if me and Big Chris were the last two people on earth, I would soon be the only person on earth.
BIG CHRIS- May 8, 2008 at 9:17 pm
Hemaphrodite midget mermaids feasting on the blubber of baby blue whales.....sorry i was just trying my best to post something more retarded than skidding just did, but it looks like i failed....

Sorry skidding you are just more retarded than I could ever hope to be, now go die....
skidding- May 8, 2008 at 9:13 pm
Back when he fought in the smaller shows, his nickname was Jason "It's your birth" Day. But they ended up changing it cause he only got to fight once a year.
