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

National Geographic Profiles the Dangerous Brazilian Wandering Spider

VidProps: FreeFights4You/YouTube via Saucylv33/The UG

Just days before UFC 134: Ultimate Brazil 2 we find this clip recounting the abilities of the world’s most venomous spider.  Known for its potent, deadly strikes, the Brazilian wandering spider is noted for its ability to quickly put down its prey, although there are documented cases of toying with those caught in its web.

After the eight-limbed monster claimed its last victim in the extreme environment of Las Vegas, arrangements were made to return the dangerous arachnid back to its native ecosystem.

Research continues in an effort to determine if the Brazilian wandering spider is, in fact, the apex predator that many believe it to be.

Oh no doubt, only a fool would dismiss the acumen inside the ring that Anderson commands. I simply think that in Jones we see the same natural ability, in a bigger - stronger version.
One-on-one, youth is balanced by experience and after a few more fights to establish a more matured mental (keep in mind Jones was a rookie-kid made pop star) perspective, he will be the man who likely displaces Anderson.
Even if either of them lose a bout or two moving forward, it matters little. I do not think there is anyone who can beat either fighter more than once.

i dont think jones has the experience that silva does, hes only fought shogun rua.. hasnt faced anyone else in the top 10 of the lhw division. ryan bader? stephan bonner... he beat some okay fighters but wasnt tested up til the point where he destroyed a guy who is and should fight a 185. maybe jones in a couple years would have a chance but ithink andy would get him out pretty quick.

jones... a future heavyweight against silva the 185 beast? what was silva's weigh in against forrest? gsp is big for 170, so that fight with Silva is a reality. jones if he was the same guy at 185 would be out of his league. I personally don't rate the 205 division that highly, and 185 is under-rated due to lack of "star power". Silva anyday over GSP, but not Cain.... based on pure likeability and bad-assness
oh and shout out to sonnen, the peoples champ, haha!

All true except that if Silva met Jones, I think it would put an end to Silva's winning ways.

Why no mention of the penile erections it causes its victims?

No need to worry are you really a kid or a clam? Hell no I am not a cowboy, though its my Dallas Cowboy moniker and I do get mad at haters...

Mad cowboy certainly is mad. I wonder if he's really a cowboy.

Man one day maybe the haters on Silva will buy a clue. The man may not be the best wrestler in the world but somehow he beat Travis Lutter, Dan Henderson and STALE KALE Sonnen who are experts on the ground and he beat them on the ground! DUH! not to mention ufc record 13 wins in a row 8 title defenses and devastating wins twice over Math Franklin,Belfort, Punchin bag leben, De Forrested Griffin (that was a matrix bout) who said he would never fight spider again not to mention he ran out the damn ring!!!LMFAO Mr. Silva in the UFC is the modern day equivalent to Ali in boxing maybe better. Enjoy him while you can he has a kill ratio higher than most fighters in the ufc and doesnt dry hump or jab people to death aka GSP = boring Sure Silva had 2 lame fights but anyone knows that to be the champ you need to beat the champ! You want it take it from him he dont have to fight your fight hes the best pound for pound in the world the last 4 years or so. Jon Jones aint there yet cuz no one has tested that chin yet and he has 13 wins and 8 title defenses to go.. GOOD LUCK with that
