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

MMA News Briefs: Lesnar, Kimbo, Megadeth + More


Brock Lesnar has brought in seven-time BJJ world champion Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros to help out with his ground game in preparation for his match against Heath Herring at UFC 87 (August 9th, Minneapolis). Lesnar by flying cockswordplata?

UFC: Silva vs. Irvin is now officially listed on’s events page, while UFC 88 (September 6th, Atlanta) has been dubbed “Breakthrough”; no matches are listed yet other than the Liddell/Evans headliner. reports that Jared Shaw has confirmed Kimbo Slice and Brett Rogers will fight in October. The fight will “more than likely” take place on CBS. A Nick Diaz/KJ Noons match is being discussed as a co-main event for the same card.

Affliction: Banned will feature a performance by Megadeth (!), who will be rockin’ out at key points throughout the event. Hopefully that means they’ll be playing the end of “Peace Sells” during Fedor’s ring entrance, and then “Killing Is My Business” during the main event fight itself.

— A “Japan and South Korea friendship event” called Kakutougi Taikai GLADIATOR has been scheduled for August 16th in Okayama, Japan, featuring a headlining bout between crusty American legend Don Frye and Japanese middleweight Ikuhisa “The Punk” Minowa, aka “Minowaman.” Minowa is no stranger to freak show bouts, as he already holds wins over Paulo Cesar Silva, Eric “Butterbean” Esch, Bum Chan Kang, and Phil Baroni.

Fuck Kimbo- June 19, 2008 at 6:41 pm
I hope the Brett Rogers Hype Train can derail the Kimbo Slice Hype Train. Even if Rogers isnt world class, he did beat James "Flappy Golf Ball Ear" Thompson. Plus Brett has BigBlack in his corner, and BigBlack tried to skate one time.

Symphony of Destruction. It would be the best entrance music ever.

Busta Rhymes >>>> megadeth

EliteXC got Busta because he's good. WTF has Megadeth done in the last, well.... ever?

And no, putting out album covers that look "sweet" on the wall of your room in mom's basement doesn't count.

WUT? Seeing Busta Rhymes perform was the best thing that happened at EliteXC...

Megadeth? Headlining an MMA event? THIS IS WHAT ELITEXC SHOULDA DONE! Instead of a band that MMA fans can ACTUALLY stand to listen to, they got Busta Rhymes.

Affliction seems to be doing everything right where EliteXC did everything wrong.

I fuckin' love it.

Dave -suckmyballs Mustane is horrible.... sorry guys!
Dude got kicked outta Metallica back in the 80's and since then its been all sour grapes. Cant stand that guy and his highpitched someone stepped on my balls yelling.
Like nails on a chalk board.

Nick Diaz + network TV = heaven

Megadeath blows dead bears.
Mustaine is a crybaby.

That's right, I said it.... bring it on, bitches.

@ Matt Herpes:

If I see the morning hours
Ill have one more yesterday
Take life from tomorrow
Cause Ive burned out my today

If I get up to the top I know
Ill just go back downhill
Gotta terminal future
And its time to write my will

Down another glass of courage
And a shot of thorazine

Were not ready to see you yet
99 ways to die
Were not ready to see you yet

Gotta short between the earphones
Wringing my hands in dismay
A more efficient maniac
With two feet in the grave

Aint got no last words to say
Yellow streak right up my spine
The gun in my mouth was real
And the taste blew my mind

In a black tie and straight jacket
Man Im gonna try again

(Chorus repeat)

Demitasse of arsenic
Try on this tie
Never mind the tree

There is only death and danger
In the sockets of my eyes
A playground of illusion
No one plays they only die

Theres a prison in my mind
And the bars are gonna break
Im as mad as a hatter
And strung out just the same

Taunting rigor mortis
I feel it draw me in

The idea of Brock Lesnar with some jits is scary.

Hello me, meet the real me
And my misfit's way of life
A dark black past is my
Most valued possession
Hindsight is always 20-20
But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy
Speak of mutually assured destruction
Nice story, tell it to Readers Digest!

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend
Anxiety's attacking me and
My air is getting thin
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet.
I'm chomping at the bit, and my
Palms are getting wet
Sweating bullets!

Hello me, it's me again
You can subdue, but never tame me
It gives me a migraine headache
Thinking down to your level
Yea, just keep on thinking it's my fault
And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance
Mankind has got to know
His limitations

Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands and
I dont know where I've been
I'm in trouble for the things
I havent got to yet
Im sharpening the axe and my
Palms are getting wet
Sweating bullets!

Well, me, it's nice talking to myself
A credit to dementia
Some day you too will know my pain
And smile its blacktooth grin
If the war inside my head
Wont take a day off I'll be dead
My icy fingers claw your back
Here I come again!

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety's attacking me
And my air is getting thin
Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands and
I dont know where I've been
Once you committed me
Now you've acquitted me
Claiming validity
For your stupidity
I'm chomping at the bit
I'm sharpening the axe
Here I come again, whoa!
Sweating bullets!

Damn, so Brett Rogers just whined and trash-talked his way into a main event slot on CBS? I gotta try that...
