Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

New ‘TUF 10′ Trailer: Rampage Wants to Shut Up Rashad’s Big Ass Mouth

(Props: MMA Scraps)

We’re less than two months away from the premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights, and it’s hard not to get excited about the first brief shots of Kimbo Slice walking out to the TUF cage and pacing around before a fight, with Rampage Jackson possibly in his corner (see the -00:09 mark). Plus, the fact that Jackson and Rashad Evans will hate each other’s guts from day one could bring back some of the Tito vs. Ken magic of season 3. So far, everybody involved is playing it very close to the vest in regards to how the fights played out this season. But the interview after the jump may suggest that Slice shook off the haters and did, at the very least, aight.

In this MMA Fanhouse interview, Roy Nelson tells Ariel Helwani that "I learned a lot from [Kimbo]…I think he’ll be in the business for a very long time to come," which is generally not what you say about someone who gets punked in his first-round match on the show. (It should be said that some of the former pro-footballers and other newbie fighters that will be bunking up on TUF 10 are even less experienced than Slice is, and Kimbo may not be the underdog that some are making him out to be.) Nelson also discusses Florida’s hatred for him, questionable MMA reffing, and ends the chat with a trademark belly-rub.

Are you guys gonna start raggin on me too once I admit, I too felt like the information was a little confusing. I had heard the rumor about Kimbo losing his first fight too, but it was just that, a rumor. I hadn't heard anyone confirm this so, when one of the gotdamn bens made that statement, I was like "huh???".
Then when "Blackleg" said another fighter confirmed Kimbo lost on twitter I'm thinkin, there has to be proof then, yet I have seen no or, heard of any proof.
I'M CONFUSED..........

Just stop typing. You went too far when you told that other guy to sit on his thumb, you flaming faggot.

I'm not sure you guys watch the same show. When the semi finals are annouced, Dana always states the fights will be next week. Meaning they'll fight the following week. They don't push one out 2 weeks. Generally there are two fights same day, watch some of the old videos when the fighters go back in the locker room, another fighter is taped up ready to go fight. ArmFarmer, moted (moted comes from the word demoted. Shortened to imply you're wrong and I am right. Made popular in the 70's and now making a come back on you).

I don't care if you don't believe me.....just watch the season and when it validates what I said you can go sit on your thumb.

"Hey D-bags, it's only heavyweights this year, so there is not two final fights (since you implied he could have fought the week before), cause then you would have two heavyweight contracts. Sorry, NINJAY and DANTE, guess you guys weren't thinking about this one."

There is ALWAYS minimum of TWO fighters still in the tournament at the end of the show, regardless of whether the show features 1 or 2 weightclasses. You need TWO fighters to fight in the finale for each contract. If there is only one contract, there are still TWO fighters fighting for it. So yes there is only one final fight for this season, but the fight you are referring to was a semifinal.. so yes he could have fought the week before and still be in it. Guess you weren't thinking about this one.

cbd123, no thanks on the address, you're a fucking creeper. Get mad at season 9? I find it hard to get mad at a whole season of a show, considering getting mad at shows would be fucking retarded.

I don't believe you, and I don't think anybody else on this website does, either.

Go fuck yourself.
cbd123- July 27, 2009 at 11:22 pm
Don't get mad, Ninjay didn't think it through.
cbd123- July 27, 2009 at 11:19 pm
Hey D-bags, it's only heavyweights this year, so there is not two final fights (since you implied he could have fought the week before), cause then you would have two heavyweight contracts. Sorry, NINJAY and DANTE, guess you guys weren't thinking about this one. The difference from past rumors was it wasn't coming from the person there. This one is. Would you also like the address of the training facility and the times they practice and fight? Not trying to ruin it, but you're the same guys that trashed Kimbo when he came on the scene. So, Bovice, you can go F yourself. Get mad at season 9, the editing from that season gave out a lot of info about when things happen.

I cant wait, all heavyweights none of the little guys, this is great.
On top of that I hope someone nets rampage again like they did before when he coached. The funniest moment ever on TUF when Rampage looks in the camera and says " I'm from the south, I'm my memphis, I have had a alotta shit happen to me but being netted like a fish wasn't one of em....damn that's embarrassing a black man getting momma's gonna see that!"
The LOOK on his face is just to funny for words. Rampage will make this TUF 10 season one of the best. I can't wait.

ROFLMAO @ PurplePickle
sp00ki kabuki- July 27, 2009 at 4:42 pm
when roy is talking about kimbo his forehead is wrinkled up. a common sign of dishonesty, or disgust. kimbo was kimbo and pissed everyone off. How crazy would kimbo be if he lost on the first day and tore the house up for 6 weeks.
PurplePickle- July 27, 2009 at 4:18 pm
Instead of an episode entitled "Splooshi", this season we will most likely hear the line: "What muthafucka done beat dey dick on my chicken wings?"

Blackleg- July 27, 2009 at 3:40 pm
Jeez Flunkie... Shortly after they announced that he was on the roster a rumor circulated that one of the other fighters had tweeted that Kimbo got rolled in his first fight. That's what they are referring too. It wasn't vague, you just weren't in the loop. ;)
Dante- July 27, 2009 at 3:40 pm
I think you dudes are being dicks, it's pretty easy to understand that this dude obviously didn't know about the rumor that was going around early on during filming.

You elitist mma fans...
omunto- July 27, 2009 at 3:27 pm
Yeah Flunkie, not trying to start a flame war here but you had like 4 comments explaining it to you. Looks like you were the only one who didn't understand the comment.
Bovice- July 27, 2009 at 3:10 pm

Maybe you're just a moron. I completely understood the article and was not in the least bit confused.

Did my post confuse you?
mmaflunkie- July 27, 2009 at 3:08 pm
All I'm saying is the wording in the article seems a bit odd and confusing....not trying to 1up anyone or anything.

Shouldn't be that hard to put together an article without confusing the audience.
sp00ki kabuki- July 27, 2009 at 3:02 pm
at :17 when slice is walking to the cage he is wearing rampages team colors. so i guess rashad is gonna b the winning coach on tuf 10
Bovice- July 27, 2009 at 2:46 pm

Go fuck yourself. Also, it's "oops", not "opps".
Dante- July 27, 2009 at 2:45 pm
CBD is full of shit just like every other rumor on the internet about that 'happenings' during this season.

MmAwEEnIe- July 27, 2009 at 2:45 pm
thank you Ninjay, I was about to say the same thing this guy is an idiot
NinJay- July 27, 2009 at 2:41 pm
They only do one fight an episode. The last day isn't the TUF finals, they only go as far as semi-finals and the finals are on spike. So, Kimbo could have qualified for the finals a fight/episode before then. "hope I didn't ruin it for you".
meanfinger- July 27, 2009 at 2:37 pm
cbd: im gonna call you a prick. just for ruining it. even if your wrong..
cbd123- July 27, 2009 at 2:25 pm
I sat outside the TUF gym and Kimbo is on Team Rampage, Big Country is on Team Evans and on the last day of filming, which was the last fight, which was on a Thursday, Kimbo was not one of the 2 fighting. Opps, did I just give to much away?
imakeutap- July 27, 2009 at 2:24 pm
you are thinking backwards, it implies that kimbo did well, hell he may even be in the final, ok ufc you can sue roy now
