Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Jeff Monson to Struggle For Relevance Against Dave Herman

(‘Look guys, no one’s saying "Some Girls" wasn’t one hell of an album. But if we’re talking about the Stones at their absolute best, there’s no way we can not talk about "Beggars Banquet." Pepper spray me if you want, but I’ll be the guy singing "Factory Girl" all the way to the station.’)

MMA’s hardest working anarchist is showing no signs of slowing down in 2010.  Coming off a split decision victory in Tulsa, Oklahoma on January 16, Jeff Monson‘s next challenge will likely come at Shine Fights 3, where he’ll face pathetic mustache owner Dave "Pee Wee" Herman, according to The Rumble.  Despite a year full of legal troubles ranging from a graffiti-related arrest to assault on a grandfather clock, Monson still managed to fight five times in 2009 in a globetrotting effort that took him to Northern Ireland, Japan, and Mexico City, among other exotic locales, like Pensacola, Florida.

Herman is 3-0 since his only career loss to Mu Bae Choi in a Sengoku event last January.  Despite his impressive record and a little bit of hype after his time in EliteXC and Sengoku, he has yet to face really difficult competition.  Sure, he knocked out MMA old-timers Don Frye and Ron Waterman before smashing Jim York, but none of that proves very much at all these days.  A fight with Monson, who’s known as much for being a terror on the mat as he is for his contradictory tattoos (come on, an anarchy symbol and a hammer and sickle? you gotta chose one failed ideology and stick with it, Jeff), so this may be a good chance for us to find out whether Herman is for real. 

The fight is expected to be added to a card already featuring "Ninja" Rua vs. Falaniko Vitale, though no date or location has been pinned down just yet.  Who knows, maybe it will happen in your hometown.  Or the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.  Either seems equally likely, while only one has a can’t-miss gimmick to it.

"...maybe it will happen in your hometown. Or the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Either seems equally likely, while only one has a can't-miss gimmick to it."

The can't miss is having the fight in my hometown. I live in the town of Badass. Population: me. Unfortunately, the town of Badass is also in Asshole County so I tend not to brag.

Thank you CP for pointing out the idiocy of Monson's tattoos. The USSR shout out by an anarchist has bugged the shit out of me for a while. He probably lives in my county too.

@ Chiggs

I'd ask him I might not be able to jerk off myself for a while but I'd ask...

CP, you should do a entry about all the amazing tattoos he has and why he got them. See if you can pull that off.

Monson's going to get out of this mess by, quickly and inconspicuously during the scuffle, switching places with the yellow-bandana'd cop. They won't be able to tell the difference and thus be forced to hold a Scooby-Doo esque who-dun-it? mask rip off.

Jeff Monson is also known for being the cause of a huge outbreak of staph at ATT! Dirty dude would grapple for hours then sleep on the mat without showering for a couple hours, wake up and grapple some more.

Good question Cage, ya should make sure ya ask him yourself, to his face perhaps? lol I keed I keed. But ya, should be a good fight. I also think Monson is underrated and doesnt really get his just do's.

Monson needs to get back to the UFC. He is the only HW in the world with a good chance of beating Brock.

Pee wee I wonder if he got that name for getting caught jerking off. Still should be a ok fight
