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

Lyoto/Thiago Rescheduled for UFC 93; Rampage/Wandy @ UFC 92?

(Thiago Silva, back when beating Houston Alexander meant something. Photo courtesy of is reporting that the planned fight between top UFC light-heavyweight contenders Lyoto Machida and Thiago Silva will go down at UFC 93 (January 31st, Las Vegas). The undefeated Brazilians were scheduled to meet at next month’s UFC 89, but Silva’s back injury nixed the match. Though Machida recently expressed interest in facing Rashad Evans in a #1 contender bout, the UFC already had other plans for Evans, and The Dragon will simply have to wait three months and fight his original opponent.

Related: We know the rumor changes every week, but Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is now saying he’ll return to the Octagon at UFC 92 (December 27th, Las Vegas), and will fight Wanderlei Silva as long as Silva agrees to the bout. Regarding his two previous losses to Silva in PRIDE, Jackson told The Sun:

On those two days he was the better man. Hopefully I can change things this time around and it can be my night — if he takes the fight…[T]he UFC have approached a few people to take the fight and a couple of them have turned it down

I think Jackson avenging those past losses would be the feel-good MMA story of the holiday season. So Wolfslair, it’s on you: Make sure the guy doesn’t fast before the fight, and please don’t steal his money. And if you do steal his money, could you at least hide the keys to his truck?

Has the UFC let Houston Alexander go yet? I think a fight between him and Kimbo would be great. Two heavy handed guys who are garbage on the ground? Fireworks, son! Plus, if Alexander won, big statement for the UFC. "Guy who gets ass-raped in UFC knocks off the XC poster-boy"

How did Rampage get screwed out of his belt? He lost to Forrest and like they say, don't leave it in the judges hands.

I hope wand turns down that fight hes allready proven himself against quinton as a wanderlei fan theres other fights i'd rather see. after screwing quinton out of his belt and then trying to set up a fight with someone whos kicked his ass twice the UFC might as well fire him along with a note that says we hate you.

Quinton should let this go, he's gonna get his ass kicked again. Wanderlei just has his number, that and he has no idea how to handle those knees. But if thats what he wants I will gladly watch the Axe Murderer destroy anyone!

quinton should let this go, he's gonna get his ass kicked a third time. But I will gladly watch Wanderlei destroy anyone.

Houston is in the same league as Tito and Kimbo as people who I just love watching get beat down in a fight.
