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

Josh Barnett Added to DREAM.13; Could Face ‘Mighty Mo’

(Mighty Mo knockout reel. Sound-effects added for emphasis!)

DREAM’s 13th show goes down in just 10 days, and in true Japanese MMA fashion, the card isn’t even close to being finalized. Currently, six fights have been announced, most notably the featherweight title fight between champion Bibiano Fernandes and Joachim Hansen, who will be dropping from lightweight to challenge for the title. Also, KJ Noons gets back in action against Andre "Dida" Amade, Cole Escovedo takes on Yoshiro Maeda, and Super Hulk champion Ikuhisa Minowa will have his next David vs. Goliath battle against heavyweight journeyman Jimmy Ambriz.

The semi-big news at today’s DREAM 13 press conference was that Josh Barnett has been officially added to the event, though his opponent hasn’t been announced yet. According to one report, the Babyface Assassin could be tangling with K-1 veteran "Mighty Mo" Siligia. Mo’s got knockout power to spare, but he’s lost six of his last seven kickboxing matches, and his last MMA appearance was a triangle-choke loss to Semmy Schilt 15 months ago. In other words, Barnett’s got this one. From a competitive standpoint, this is maybe one step up from bullying amateurs at a local grappling tournament. As we explained earlier, DREAM isn’t exactly the ideal promotion to work for if you want to test yourself against the best heavyweights in the world. But compared to fake-fighting Bob Sapp, anything seems legitimate…

Those punch effects were fucking hilarious.

I'm so sick of hearing about Barnett, this guy could be fighting for free in my backyard against Kimbo and I still wouldn't waste time looking out the window to watch the fight. He's a fucking steroid abusing disgrace it's no wonder he's fighting in pro wrestling and in Japan or in grappeling tourneys against amateurs half his size, he'll never have an credability let alone any consideration for serious contention ever again.

Flush this piece of shit down the toliet already and stop trying to figure out what you ate last night to make the turd so fucking long.

I was about to call bullshit on you guys for this report, until I re-read it realized it said "Mighty" Mo and not "King" Mo. My bad, I should have known better than to assume King Mo would get in the ring with some real competition.

And barnett continues to be barnett.

I can never navigate my mind around some peoples fascination with this dude.

(Although I do have my suspicions)
