Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Jackson, Evans, Griffin Take Home UFC 92′s End-of-Night Bonuses

Forrest Griffin Rashad Evans crotch grab kiss taunting UFC 92
(In some cultures, that’s considered a compliment. Props to IrishLew)

Following a shocking night of fights in which Quinton Jackson exacted revenge against his arch-nemesis, two new champions were crowned, and my sure-thing parlay bet was shit all over, the UFC handed out $60k bonuses to the following fighters…

Knockout of the Night: Quinton Jackson, obviously. Though eight of the Ultimate 2008′s ten fights ended in stoppages due to strikes (seven within the first two rounds), Rampage’s left-hook stiffening of Wanderlei Silva was a picture-perfect one-punch KO, and represented a dramatic return to form. Will Jackson/Griffin 2 be next?

Fight of the Night: Forrest Griffin and Rashad Evans for their light-heavyweight championship main event. After an even first round, Griffin found his groove, landing strikes with regularity and ending the second frame with an on-the-button superman punch. But Evans proved just how "athletic and explosive" he really is when he knocked Forrest to the ground in the third and finished him off with some devastating punches from the top — becoming the second consecutive TUF winner to hold the 205-pound strap.

Submission of the Night: Nobody, since no fight ended in a tapout. But hey, you don’t like that gay foreplay stuff anyway.

UFC 92 drew 14,103 spectators for an impressive (though not record-setting) live gate of $3.47 million.

I agree 100%. Rashad is NO champion. I fucking hate the guy. I've started training recently and my new goal in life is to make it to the UFC and beat the fucking sugar out of that showboating bitch. I've stomped tougher guys than him in bars. Hes nothing. Chances are, i'll never make it that far. It would be like getting into the NFL over night. It just dosnt happen for small time fighters like me. Hey, a guy can dream right?

I'm sure every picture you've seen of her has been airbrushed too.

@ Anthony

quite simply ur an idiot...mir has more skill and is more diverse than lesnar.... "Mir beat Nog. So fucking what?" really? An amazing fighter like Nog and you're not gonna give Mir credit? a fight everyone counted Mir out of and yet he came up with a game plan that rocked Nog.....go back to watching WWE where ur dickchested man is king

Just curious where you live Mr. Shatner...I'm in Los Angeles and chicks like Rachelle Leah are a dime a dozen. You must live in the heartland or something....

If it isn't for the UFC pr and marketing machine, she would never have been discovered nor been in Playboy. She's average at best.
William Shatner- December 29, 2008 at 8:34 pm
Rachelle Leah is the definition of a natural beauty. If you're talking about the Playboy pictures as far as airbrushing goes that's all the pictures in Playboy they're airbrushed for everyone. I have no idea what you're talking about with saying you see fat on Rachelle Leah she has a lean athletic build. I've never seen a photo of her where she looked like she had an ounce of fat.
The Biz- December 29, 2008 at 8:26 pm
For the record...I never thought Arianny was that hot....and Rachelle Leah is a little overrated as well, she's OK..not great...

Rachelle could tighten up a little see some fat in her sides when she bends over in some of her photos. Too much airbrushing in the pictorial. Definitely not a natural beauty.

Anonymous says " Both Evans and Forrest would beat Tito if they fought again"
Listen if you're going to post stupid shit like that at least sign your fucking name!
Also everyone saying Arianny is getting fat. Are probably the same asshole's who at one time thought Arianny was hotter than Rachelle Leah. Fucking fools!
Anthony- December 29, 2008 at 4:48 pm
J-Dog. Even if he did tap it wouldn't be a form of submission. Armbar, Triangle choke and rear naked choke are all forms of a submission. Standing over someone and continuely introducing your fist to their face is not. Nice try though!
J-Dog- December 29, 2008 at 12:26 pm
"Submission of the Night: Nobody, since no fight ended in a tapout."

CORRECTION: Forrest Griffin tapped out due to strikes before the ref jumped in and stopped his bout. Watch it again, he clearly tapped.

Tony... c'mon, ya douche. Lucky punch? Then that's two fights in a row Evans has won with his mysteriously lucky fists. Who decided to give Evans so much luck?

Just for future reference. When you're fighting somebody and you throw a punch with the intent of knocking that person out, and the punch lands and you win... that's not luck. That's years of training, dedication, etc.

Rashad is very athletic but he has heart too. Explosive athleticism doesn't get you to a championship level without heart to back it up. The ball grabbing thing was just like this: "Ok, you just gave me all you have and I'm still here, what now?"

And then of course he ended TKOing Forrest.

I'm not that interested in Rampage Vs Rashad for some reason. Maybe if Shogun wins they can make a Rampage Vs Shogun rematch (kind of like a blood feud with Chute Boxe type thing...) I really want to see Anderson come up to 205 again and challenge Evans for the title. That is an interesting matchup.

Oh and Mir's crash was over 4 years ago. So now is the time to stop playing it off as if it happened 6 months ago. What a douche.

I guess the two pound reach advantage didn't pay off.

Guess he's undefeated like Mayweather douche!

They should of changed the name of the Maxim Magazine contest Arianny was in from Hometown Hottie to Hometown Fatty.
The Biz- December 29, 2008 at 1:06 am
I'm telling you...had dinner with some UFC insiders tonight in Vegas...they all confirm Arianny is getting fat.

Look at her from earlier in the year till now...Now that's a huge Bitch!

"Mir, you're a pussy... Don't talk a bunch of shit about your jiu jitsu and how you're going to break Nog's bones and then not go to the ground. You looked great in your striking, but you're still a pussy. Now you'll go on to Lesnar and try for submission as fast as possible."
-Well, it looks like Mir is fighting a smart game. Tap Lesnar, TKO Nog? Yeah, like Mir is going to throw with a tank, or play the ground game with a seasoned Brazilian. Nice one.

Excellent fight card; It's the 3rd consecutive one that I fully enjoyed. Awesome job UFC!
Tony- December 28, 2008 at 11:52 pm
uh, he's not the better man. Griffin pretty much had the fight the whole time, rashad got a lucky punch, that was it.
Brocks Sword- December 28, 2008 at 10:19 pm
Its entertaining, we will keep doing it, in fact after i beat frank Mir i am going to reinact the motorcycle crash
Anthony- December 28, 2008 at 8:35 pm
@ Aryan.

How come when anyone else but Lesnar changes there ways everyone goes "Oh it's so nice to see him acting more mature" but when a douchebag like Mir. Who has always been a fucking douche says shit like "I'm gonna make him famous with the break I give him" everyone seems to think it's ok.

You wanna know why Lesnar was smiling so much after Mir won? Cause he knows Mir has got NOTHING that can compete with his skills. Mir beat Nog. So fucking what? I must have watched a different fight than everyone else because Nog did NOT look like he wanted to be there. Mir was impressive but for some reason Nog looked waaaaay off his game.

Lesnar was a class act last night. The whole "I'm not the champ till I beat Mir or Nog." was all class. I am looking forward to Mir's trash talking up to the Lesnar fight. Because Mir is a dilusional fuck. He beat a ROOKIE fighter after getting his ass handed to him fro most of the round. All Mir needs to do is look at the photos of his face after the fight.

And as soon as Mir got home you know he was like "FUCK I gotta fight Lesnar again." Fuck Mir! I can't wait till he gets steam rolled just like Couture.

I sure hope Lesnar will let me lick his cock tattoo
Anonymous- December 28, 2008 at 7:45 pm
Nobody who steps into a cage with Big Nog could be a pussy... Nog stood around waiting for Mir to lie down and play his game... kudos to Mir for coming up with a game plan that worked... hope he does the same for Lesnar.

Evans is becoming kind of like a Floyd Mayweather Jr. An ASSHOLE!
Mescan_Judo- December 28, 2008 at 7:41 pm
That gif is prime example on why Evans is despised so much:/
Dan - December 28, 2008 at 6:51 pm
I agree that Mir is a PUSSY for not going to the ground with Nog! MIR IS A SANDY VAGINA!
