Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

No Way, Jose; Aldo Thinks Manny Gamburyan Will Get Next Shot at His Title

(Jose, don’t you know who his cousin is, bro?)

In a interview with TATAME this weekend WEC featherweight champ Jose Aldo said that he has a good feeling that his next title defense will be against Manny Gamburyan.

According to the dominant Nova Uniao BJJ black belt fighter who trains with the likes of the Nogueira brothers, Anderson Silva and Junior Dos Santos, The fight hasn’t officially been inked, but he indicated that Gamburyan is the frontrunner for the next shot at his belt.

"I don’t really know. When we left Sacramento there were two names we had in mind, but I think maybe it will be Manny Gamburyan, so I can’t really say. We are here now, but I believe we will only know this for sure in some time, I think we will have to wait a bit longer."

At first I was like, "Seriously? Manny Gamburyan," but looking at the WEC’s featherweight roster, I can’t say there are a lot of other options for Jose at the moment, since "The Anvil" just threw a wrench in the promotion’s likely plan to have an Aldo vs. Mike Brown rematch by the end of summer.

Personally, I’d like to see them bring in a guy like Hatsu Hioki, or eventually Ivan Menjivar (if his comeback is successful) to round out the division, especially since Aldo is already planning a move up or down in weight classes in the not too distant future.

"It’s possible that I can to a lighter or a heavier division, but I sure want to do some belt defenses first, I want to build a solid career on the featherweight division. But, in the future, I may take a risk and change divisions."

Do you guise know who Karo is?! June 2, 2010 at 11:22 pm
All the WEC titles seem like hot potatoes. I think we may see an upset, he almost won TUF fighting one weight class UP from were he should have.

Do you think there is any chance WEC scoops Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes??? That would really ROUND out the division. Imagine Fernandes vs. Brown or even Fernandes vs the winner of Nunes, Asuncao thats happening in Edmonton. I agree about Hioki and another 145lbJap that would be good is Omigawa. Omigawa fought a couple times in teh UFC so I don't see Zuffa having that hard of a time poaching him back from Japan.

Yeah adding a few fighters would be nice while we wait and watch Aldo Gamburyan unfold.

I want Joe Say "El Chihuahuacabrinho" All Dough versus Know Ray Foo May Kid Yam A Moe Tow.

Can somebody please break him free from that third world prison shit-hole he got himself stuck in after he smoked the weeds in one of those crazy strict ass-backwards foreign joints? It could be a death sentence for the poor guy what with the unfiltered water, rodents, and rampant tropical diseases.

Hey mother fucker. Do you know who I am on the street? As far as me not being an athlete, do you know what I'm capable of doing on the fucking street? Do you know me that way? No, you don't know me. So if you don't know me, fuck with me.

Well apparently you don't really remember Gamburyan's UFC run. He was knocked out by Rob Emerson in 12 seconds, and is also known for faking a pre fight hand touch with Jeff Cox and throwing a kick. He is related to Karo Parysian, likely spends all of his time at the Jersey shore club scene, and Aldo will destroy him.

Manny's last name is how a dumb person says "Gay burns your buns"

Manny should be first in line. He was competitive in the UFC's lightweight division, remember. I have little doubt he can absorb Aldo's best shot, and can hit even harder.

Love this idea. Both guys are exciting dynamic fighters, mix in a little of that WEC magic and this will be a barn-burner. Mark my words, barns will be burned. It will be a terrible night to be Amish.

Please no genocide, Manny.
