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

Jimmo, Madadi Out of UFC on FX 1

And he’d been training so hard, too. It’s damn near perfect.

It appears that we’ll have to wait a little longer for the UFC debut of former Cage Potato guest blogger and Maximum Fighting Championship light heavyweight champion Ryan Jimmo. Yesterday, the UFC announced that Jimmo was injured while preparing for his debut against Karlos Vemola, and has been taken off of the card. Consequently, Vemola has been dropped from the card, as the UFC will not pursue a replacement opponent for the Czech fighter. The injury suffered by Jimmo has not been disclosed at this time.

Also of note, Swedish-Iranian lightweight prospect Reza Madadi has also been injured, and has pulled out of his UFC debut against the recently re-signed Fabricio Camoes. Unlike Vemola, the UFC is pursuing a last minute replacement opponent for Camoes, who has won two straight since being released by the UFC after a loss to Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 111. Depending on the severity of the injury, Madadi will now likely make his UFC debut at the UFC’s inaugural show in Sweden on April 14.

UFC on FX is set to go down on January 20th from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The fight card now looks like this:

Main card
Melvin Guillard vs. Jim Miller
Duane Ludwig vs. Josh Neer
Mike Easton vs. Jared Papazian
Pat Barry vs. Christian Morecraft

Preliminary card (Fuel TV)
Jorge Rivera vs. Eric Schafer
Kamal Shalorus vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
Charlie Brenneman vs. Daniel Roberts
Daniel Pineda vs. Pat Schilling
Joseph Sandoval vs. Nick Denis

Hopefully Shalorus beats a few letters out of Nurmagomadomadomadov's name. MMA writers of the world must be cringing at having to learn that one.

Why not put Vemola against Camoes? You know, since Johnson has now proven that weight classes don't matter

when you see a card like this, you begin to see that the UFC may be churning out a few too many events.
