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

Mondragon vs. Barnett at Strikeforce in Australia Apparently News to Strikeforce

(Geronimo started noticing huge gains when he began following the Overeem diet book he got for Christmas.)

Citing a news article from, several outlets today are reporting that Josh Barnett will face Gerônimo “Mondragon” Dos Santos at an upcoming Strikeforce event in Australia. 

The Brazilian’s sentiments were apparently lost in translation, as TATAME is now reporting that the heavyweight will actually be fighting Barnett in Australia at the inaugural Impact MMA show on July 17.

Strikeforce does not have an event planned for that date and sources tell that they have no immediate plans to follow in the UFC’s footsteps and hold a show down under.

Dos Santos, who is 8-1 in his past nine fights, which include a win over Assuerio Silva, clarified that should he win against the former UFC heavyweight champion-turned-professional-wrestler, he will likely sign with the Scott Coker-helmed promotion.

Here’s a tough to decipher quote from the article:

“I’m sorry, I was wrong. I signed the contract, the fight will be against Josh Barnett, but it’ll be at Impact MMA, a new event in Australia… If I win I’ll sign with Strikeforce, I’m so thrilled that I said everything wrong (laughs),” the heavyweight explains.

Brazilians sure do have strange senses of humor.

Being as Mondragon is managed by Wallid Ismail, I was hoping he'd end up in the UFC but I wouldn't mind seeing him against all 7 Strikeforce Heavyweights.

If this guy signs with Strikefarce I want to see him and Uberween fight to the death (or at least serious injury) for a raw 16oz. chunk of horse flank. We'll keep them both in sealed plexi-glass boxes like David Blaine for two weeks before the bout and then they can let them out and toss the bloody meat into the middle of the cage. Carnage (and hilarity) ensues.

Aussie Josh just basically said Barnett will not be fighting in Australia.

Guess that only leaves Cali.

Do they not test for roids in australia? Seriously, why would anybody book a fight between Barnett and Man Mountain unless there were absolutely no testing whatsoever.
