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

The “MMA Live” Curse: Is Randy Couture Next?

ESPN MMA Live Curse
(Try all you want, but you can’t argue with a collage, people.)

As long as we’re dwelling on MMA curses this week, our friends at MMA Scraps have created this handy little graphic to show the devastation that the possibly fictional/possibly terrifyingly real "MMA Live" Curse can wreak on any MMA fighter bold enough to don a sportcoat and stare awkwardly into ESPN’s internet TV cameras.  Oh, and Frank Mir too, who apparently is keeping things real casual-like out in Vegas.

The point is, appearing on "MMA Live" could very well be a one-way ticket to Beatdownville.  So we got to wondering, didn’t Randy Couture just appear on "MMA Live" a few days ago to do a UFC 101 recap?  And isn’t he taking on Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 102 at the end of August?  Seems like trouble a-brewin’ to us.  Then again, maybe that’s all just superstitious nonsense.  And pro athletes are never superstitious, right?  Guys?  Right?

We’ll remember you as a hero, Randy.

Frank looking fly in his white t-shirt and smug head-tilt combo. Screw the other four dorks in their suits.

Yeah, Griffin got another loss after being on the cover, but GSP was on the cover of the Canadian version, too. Maybe the Undisputed Curse couldn't follow his riddum well enough to get him

@rcj5019 damn u beat me to it!!

What about the "Curse" of being on the front of a video game? Madden?? Now that Forrest is on the cover of UFC Undisputed is he cursed???

I think I'm going to be happy and sad at the same time no matter who wins the Couture/Nog fight. I love both of those guys.

Already got my UFC 102 tickets. The closest UFC to Washington since...California, I guess.

MMA is legal in Washington, but for some reason the only different rule we have is that there are no elbows on the ground. It might just be to the head, but seriously? We also don't do blood work for amateur fights, which is sketchy as hell.

I wonder about Randy vs Big Nog. On one hand, I think "Randy can take this dude" then, I think "What about if Big Nog comes into this fight in the best shape ever cause he's comin off that big loss to Mir, and he kicks Randys ass". This ones a mystery to me fellas, what d ya think????

They should put Justin Mccully on the next cover.
rcj5019- August 12, 2009 at 5:31 pm
Also please please please someone tell me they have at least noticed the UFC Undisputed curse is alive and well.

Griffin got KTFO'ed and his reputation may have changed forever after his first fight after being the cover boy.

Scarier then Blair Witch in real life if these fighters were actually getting Injured but they weren't.
Besides Rashad which he might have made a guest appearance I don't think host a full show like the others...but still the Madden curse is there better to know these things and avoid guest hosting MMA Live for a little while let some other fighters test it out.

Rashad Evans and Stephan Bonnar appeared on MMA Live after their losses, so establishing a causal relationship between their appearances on the show and their prior losses takes more superstition than even the average Red Sox fan could muster. Nice try, though.
