Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Lesnar vs. Velasquez Set for October 23rd in Anaheim + More UFC Booking News

(They don’t like smiling. Put that in your little notebook.)

Dana White confirmed with over the weekend that Brock Lesnar‘s expected title defense against Cain Velasquez will come at UFC 121, slated for October 23rd at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The meeting will come nearly four months after Lesnar’s comeback submission win over Shane Carwin at UFC 116, and eight months after Velasquez stormed through Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 110.

Though betting odds for the fight opened with Lesnar as a minor favorite (-125 to Cain’s -105), Lesnar has already moved as high as -160, due to money flooding in on the champ. At this point, the only other matchup reported for UFC 121 is a lightweight scrap between Sam Stout and Paul Taylor. In other booking news…

Matt Serra and Chris Lytle will meet at UFC 119 (September 25th, Indianapolis) in a rematch of their TUF 4 Finale fight, which Serra won by split decision after three dull rounds of wall-and-stall. Serra is coming off his first-round knockout of Frank Trigg at UFC 109, while Lytle has won three consecutive matches against Kevin Burns, Brian Foster, and Matt Brown.

— After getting creamed by UFC newcomer Travis Browne at the TUF 11 Finale, James McSweeney will make a wise drop to light-heavyweight and take on Tom Blackledge, another UFC first-timer, at UFC 120 in London. Blackledge is a Wolfslair member who appeared as part of Quinton Jackson‘s coaching staff on TUF 10.

Cain's gonna pitta pat punch his way to victory for five rounds.
Cain's the man.

Is it just me or did Conar the Brockbarian have a surprising parallel to the first Conan, where he is thrown into the pit for the first time and he is too stupefied to fight? He is getting his ass kicked all over town until he kills the guy accidentally just to get him to stop bothering him. Conar looked a bit stupefied.

"What are the best things in life Conar?"

"To destroy your enemy,see him driven before you, to hear the lamentation of his women!"

Some of us ONLY post mildly stupid things. Like this post.

It's called having a little bit of fun, sheeesh.

I've been a fan of this sport for 5 years now and it is my favorite sport.

Just because I wanna have some fun and post something mildy stupid doesn't mean im a noobie.

I still want Lesnar dethroned... it just needs to happen.
I Know Nothing- July 12, 2010 at 3:27 pm
Cain takes this. No doubt.

Lesner by Toby Imada choke.

Using MMAmath is the quickest way for someone to point out how new to the sport you are, just sayin'
Lesnars_tiny_pecker_says- July 12, 2010 at 1:22 pm
you didn't have to yell at me. You know I have feelings too.
You are right though and i should have thought about that.
That said, I never bet on fights. Because there is no such thing as logic in the world of combat sports. If there was, you would never hear the term"upset". Just saying. Is it likely that Cain is winning, NO. Have stranger things happened, well...
I like Brock, and I like Fedor. Both have lost fights to guys they should have easily beaten so there is always the chance for mistakes and luck and all the variables that make me not bet on anything and just watch and enjoy and thank the lord that I am not getting choked or beaten by these goones
KimboSlice- July 12, 2010 at 12:17 pm

I don't know how many times this has been said, but........


Let's just use simple logic real fast.

Cain could barely beat Cheick Kongo, actually got rocked twice, and was taken down in the 3rd round.

Frank Mir beat Cheick Kongo in one round

Shane Carwin beat Frank Mir in one round

Brock Lesnar beat both Shane and Frank in the second round.

Cain will not win.

And Cains wins over Big Nog and Ben Rothwell were not that impressive, in the Ben fight it was just one of those cases of a bad call and the ref shouldn't have stopped it.

armfarmer cares about what you think cause he cares about what everyone thinks
Lesnars_tiny_pecker_says- July 12, 2010 at 12:03 pm
I don't know if Carwin ever hit lesnar flush and with full power. I don't mean to take anything away from Lesnar. Maybe someone who throws sharp quick shots could get the job done. Is the Cain or Jr. I don't know. Can a fast punching quick footed fighter do the job? Randy seemed to be landing OK in that fight. could one of these guys unload enough to get him out?. Does anyone care what I think. stop laughin at me!
Sakuraba3900- July 12, 2010 at 12:00 pm
I think that after Cain loses to lesnar they should put him up against Shane... I think that would be an amazing fight. I cant see that fight being anything other than awesome.
joshuan29- July 12, 2010 at 11:54 am
Brock by GnP asswhipping in round 2. If Carwin can't beat Lesnar down and keep him down, Cain has no chance.

Lesnar will mow the heavyweight div. down until he fights Carwin again, or he gets caught in a sub.
Sakuraba3900- July 12, 2010 at 11:43 am
So thats not far off from my HB residence... I sir shall be attending that event. Not to mention the fact that the Honda Center is the best venue to watch ANYTHING... seriously it is.
knucklesamitch- July 12, 2010 at 10:38 am
With some of the Heavyweights coming into the title picture, I don't think I'll be surprised if Brock loses to any of them, but after taking that beating from Carwin and surviving, I don't see it happening.

If if you think the fight should have been stopped, he took a beating that 60sec on a stool should not have been a sufficient recovery time, and yet, he quickly sub'd Carwin in Round 2.

No one is going to hit him as hard as Carwin, and with his size and wrestling skill, every attempt to do so is a risk that could end with a Lesnar take-down and jerkoff/hammerfist punches for the Lesnar win.

Cain KO's brock on the feet. RD1.

Cain by referee stoppage in round 2 due to Lesnar going into red meat withdrawls....
831 Father- July 12, 2010 at 9:01 am
@knucklesamitch: UPS deliverymen smile. Cain does not due to his lack of personality.

Plus, even Dana knows that UPS sucks. They don't ring the doorbell half the time and/or leave your package sitting at the front door waiting to be stolen by some unscrupulous ass.
ccman- July 12, 2010 at 8:49 am
Does that mean in the promos zuffa will replace the giant cock on lesners chest with a penis?
knucklesamitch- July 12, 2010 at 8:14 am
Can someone please tell me why Velasquez doesn't have a sponsorship deal with UPS already?

Maybe DW can get them in on the action in stead of Budlight...Then after Lesnar wins he can say, "I'm shipping on my xmas presents via Fedex because UPS won't pay me nothin'."
Viva Hate- July 12, 2010 at 8:14 am
Brock will continue his evolution as a submission artist and win this fight by Gogoplata, just watch.
El Famous Burrito- July 12, 2010 at 8:07 am

Actually, they're going to replace "Brown" with "fuck".
Ballkick- July 12, 2010 at 7:55 am
"Yawn",....Brock by Freight Train collision, followed by Hammer-fist stoppage. 1st round, Shane let him up,......Zzzzzz,......stop punching yourself out!.........Zzzzzzzz........Rosenthal......Fuck!.......Zzzzzzz
