Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Matt Brown vs. Stephen Thompson Added to UFC 145

Thompson looks to stay undefeated against Matt Brown at UFC 145

We’re barely one week removed from UFC 143, yet two welterweights who were victorious on the card have been signed to fight at UFC 145. The UFC has announced that TUF 7 veteran Matt Brown has agreed to a bout with Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.

Matt Brown managed to buy himself more time in the UFC with a second round TKO over Chris Cope at UFC 143, improving the UFC record of ”The Immortal” to 6-5. On the other end of the spectrum, Stephen Thompson made an impressive first impression on viewers with his first round head kick knockout over Dan Stittgen. The victory improved his record to 6-0, and also earned him Knockout of the Night honors.

Normally, I’d comment on how the short layover between fights may save the loser from the chopping block. But in this case, it seems redundant. “Wonderboy” is an exciting fighter facing his first step up in competition, while “The Immortal” has certainly lived up to his nickname in terms of not being cut from the UFC. Unless the loser misses weight, fails a drug test or runs away for three rounds, expect both fighters to stick around.

UFC 145 will go down on April 21, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia, featuring a light-heavyweight championship bout between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans.

And just because I can't bare to have my name associated to Mauro: Mauro Renallo drives me fucking insane. I wanna karate kick that spastic monkey in his head every time I see him. Same for Schiavello for that matter. Hmm maybe I have roid rage like War Machine.

Well, the only reason I come to CP is because it's funny. You are not funny. I will now stop talking to you. Go back to eating the corn out of my shit.

Awww the Fedor fan is upset with the truth...your that guy who thought he was the "Best MMA fighter in the world" arnt you. *Side note* how do you know Fedor has a Donkey Dick?? If you define nuthugger as liking the promotion who has the best MMA fighters in the world compete than Yes you ass clown I am a nuthugger. Have the ten best kick-boxers fight 10 gatekeepers in of any weight class in the UFC and see what happens. Now your going to say it wouldn't be fair cause kick-boxers don't fight on the ground huh, man up and get a ground game...Now go back to doing your job which is making sure Mauro's grundel is licked clean

@fedorHasDonkeyDick - First, dear sir, you should be ejected from the premises for your username. Second, I hate the term nuthugger but you define it: you are a UFC nuthugger. Because you are so stupid that you equate "UFC" with best even when comparing kickboxing world to MMA world. You have a point, but it's not what you said: Matt Brown can use *MMA* not *experience* to his advantage. Personally I think Thompson will kick him in the head anyway.

Sopapo you are absolutely WRONG...go eat a dick, what are all those fights in the kickboxing world going to amount to in the UFC? getting taken down and ground and pounded back to the karate world.
Kaboom82- February 13, 2012 at 5:18 am
Wow. Thompson, rory and michael macdonald, mackdessi..
145 is going to be a barn burner. I love the fact that after this card Thompson and Roary are going to be in the same lane.

Zfighter0684 is talking about kickboxing you dumb fuck. And he is absolutely RIGHT.

Calm down with the exclamation marks, man.
zfighter0684- February 12, 2012 at 3:14 pm
@Skeletor Matt Brown is too experienced? Matt Brown has has 1/3 of the fights as "Wonderboy" and you are saying Matt Brown is too experienced! Wonderboy has fought the best Stand Up fighters in the world from the U.S to Russia to Germany and France and he has beaten all his opponents. Matt Brown loves to stand up and fight which is what 'Wonderboy" is known for. Matt Brown will move around if he is smart but Wonderboy will stalk him down and destroy him!!! It's inevitable!
bootystar- February 12, 2012 at 3:05 pm
@skeletor, you mean too smart unlike the public who continue paying taxes
ReX13- February 12, 2012 at 2:46 pm
Rsparrow >> No kiddin. 2012 season is overflowing with 17 teams, it's pretty nuts. We're working on getting it automated now.
skeletor- February 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm
Matt Brown will win this fight. He's to experienced to stand in front of this one trick and let him kick ihim in the face.
Coneblazer- February 12, 2012 at 12:09 pm
Mad MFing Matt Brown to win - thank fuck he bt Cope.

@oc in this bitch - now we all have a GSP v Condit dance competiton to look forward to (ie a Capoeira exhibition).. PLS Diaz don't go Homie.
Rampage knows the score - its Ultimate Fighter not Ultimate Gameplan (or Ultimate Elusive Guy)
Lesnarischamp- February 12, 2012 at 11:33 am
It's not that bad of a turn around sicne neither had any real injuries (that I could see). Fight is 11 weeks from last fight, a proper camp should be 5-6 weeks to avoid overtraining. I wish more fighters would fight this often, if uninjured.
bootystar- February 12, 2012 at 11:17 am
@oc in this bitch, fuck me bro, you just fucking made my day with your post, Chang Tsung - It has begun
bootystar- February 12, 2012 at 11:15 am
@oc in this bitch, if Caleb built it, they will come
RearNakedSpoon- February 12, 2012 at 11:11 am
I hope Matt knocks the Jesus out of his...
RSparrow- February 12, 2012 at 11:05 am
Rexy, can't tell if you're fucking around about the fantasy thing... But I'll go ahead and say that I want in if this shit exist...
