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

Let’s Hope the Actual “Primetime” Episodes Are Way Better Than These Outtakes

Rememer the "UFC Primetime" series that premieres tonight?  Well, in a continued effort to generate buzz before the first episode, the UFC has put out a couple clips of what they’re calling "unseen moments" from the show.  Of course, they’re not at all unseen now that the UFC has put them on their official YouTube page, but you get the point.  It’s footage they weren’t going to use anyway, and it’s supposed to make you want to watch the show, which is in turn supposed to make you want to buy the  UFC 111 pay-per-view or pay $25 to see it at a movie theater

Trouble is, this stuff is painfully boring.  We’re talking Jim Jarmusch levels of boring here.  As in, a two-minute clip of Georges St. Pierre talking about a bet he made with a friend for really uninteresting stakes, followed by him calling that friend and discussing those uninteresting stakes all over again.  We realize it’s throwaway footage, but damn.  I’m supposed to bump "16 and Pregnant" off my DVR queue for this?

After the jump, GSP does some push-ups and drills and stuff.  It’s exactly as interesting as that sentence makes it sound.

Lol at getting pumped up by an infomercial.

That would make me feel kinda skeevy, but then I've never been a good murikan either.

I just watched the Primetime show and now I'm geeking out for the PPV. I am a complete mark for a little high end production on a countdown show.

I will watch a Goldstein vs Fowlkes oil wrestling match if it has the right lighting and soundtrack.

Actually, I google the web daily just in case such a thing exists. My money is on the thick necked dullard.

Ah the jersey bet. A classic.

Of course it means more when there is actual hatred between the teams.

Like nearly EVERY year when I make my UCLA buddy wear an SC football jersey to work.

Hey now...I'm from Canada, and it means alot to us that we just barely beat a country at a sport that we invented and pumped billions of dollars of our economy into! If I had to wear a team USA jersey in my neighborhood I'd be run outta town (a la "Chael Sonnen Republican style mob")...that, or they'd frown upon me silently in disgust.

Ghost Dog was alright. I tried to get through Mystery Train at least three times on IFC, still no idea what that movie was about.

For a GSP nuthugger like myself this is like savoury milk despite being mundane to the average/sane human being
