Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Kimbo and Nick Diaz’s Next; Tito/Lyoto Confirmed

Here’s some scoops for those nursing a post-President’s Day hangover.

— We’ve covered what we think would be dumb-ass fights for Kimbo Slice‘s next war and what we think would be decent match-ups. Now the compass needle in the MMA universe seems to be pointing to Paul Buentello. The ex-UFC heavy – known as “The Headhunter” – has re-upped his challenge to Kimbo, as dictated to MMA Weekly.

“People want to see it. I think everybody wants to see it. Me and Kimbo should lace up the gloves. Everybody wants to see it and I think it’s time. He’s fighting all the guys I’ve already knocked out and I’ve already exposed. He needs to get off that buffet line I put out there and come over to my Paul Buentello taco shop and see if we can get to work.”

Buentello’s metaphors need some work, but it could be a fight worth parking your ass on the futon to see.

Pro Elite is reporting that Muhsin Corbbrey has signed to fight Nick Diaz in an EliteXC match on April 26th in Honolulu. No confirmation on Diaz’s signing the agreement. Corbbrey is 6-2 and trains with Din Thomas and John Blanken. If this happens, it will be Exploding Eye Nick’s first battle since his TKO loss to K.J. Noons last November. That fight was also notable for Nick giving the crowd the finger after he was declared the loser.

— Not that we’re calling Babalu a liar or anything, but Lyoto Machida‘s manger, Ed Soares, has confirmed that the UFC light heavy fight between Lyoto and “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Tito Ortiz will in fact happen on May 24th at UFC 84. The news comes via “The Lights Out Show” on TAGG – via MMA Junkie. Remember that Tito is saying that this is for sure his last fight with the ethically-challenged UFC.

Hey Potato, that artwork is freakin' hilarious! Where did you get it? Is there more of this stuff, like a picture Wandy or Kimbo?

Yea, i loved watching nick's fights against diego and all his other wars... but i'm hoping the plastic surgery he got will help him.. b/c the scar tissue was his biggest enemy. Kimbo vs Buentello might be good, but buentello has shown signs of a glass chin, i guess we'll see... he trains out of aka i think, so at least hes got that going for him.
On a completely unrelated note, do you guys know if the icon sport fight coming up will be televised?

Nick Diaz is just a jiu-jitsu tract home kid disguised in a thug's body... him and his brother throw up gang signs and the "bird" just for show... they are both wierdos. They happen to live in the foreclosure capitol of America, but that doesn't make it "the hood". If they would buckle down and shed the attitudes, they might both make out to be great, not just average, mma fighters. I'd like to see their potential as opposed to the poor sportsmanship.
