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

Pat Healy vs. Josh Thomson Added to June 26 ‘Fedor vs. Werdum’ Fight Card

(Michael Bisping‘s son he may or may not have had with Kim Couture will take on Mac Danzig and Woody Harrelson’s (alleged) bastard child June 26)

Strikeforce announced this afternoon the addition of a lightweight tilt between the promotion’s former 155-pound kingpin Josh Thomson and former MFC welterweight champ Pat "Bam Bam" Healy to its June 26 Fedor vs. Werdum Fight card. The event, which will also feature a rematch between former Strikeforce middleweight titleholder Cung Le and Scott Smith, will emanate from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.

Healy (23-15) is a UFC, WEC and IFL vet who holds wins over Carlos Condit, Dan Hardy and Paul "Tinnitus" Daley. He has won seven of his last 10 fights, including a pair of Ws he earned against up-and-coming Canadian welterweight Ryan "The Real Deal" Ford.

Thomson (16-4 1, NC) was originally scheduled to face Lyle Beerbohm on the card, but it was announced that "Fancy Pants" had sustained an injury in his hotly contested bout with Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro last month, so Healy was brought in as his replacement. He’s coming off a highly competitive battle with Gilbert Melendez in December that saw "The Punk" lose his title and the bout via unanimous decision.

@Mike Russell Look, I'm just sayin' -- I've never heard anybody describe an event as "emanating from" a location. It's a weird usage, period.

Typically, "emit" and "emanate" can be used as synonyms:

There was a smell emitting from the trash.
There was a smell emanating from the trash

The proposals emanated from a committee
The proposals emitted from a committee

now try your sentence:

The event will emit from the HP Pavilion (Huh?!)

I'll make you a deal -- you stop using words inappropriately and I'll stop calling you on it. :-)

UPDATE: BTW, it really crazy that I got under your skin enough that you had to google-stalk me to find something to fire back with. That's just creepy, man.

As mentioned, KJ Noons vs Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennet is out. KJ will be fighting on the June 16th card against Conor Huen.

I think MRuss and JoseMonkey should emanate themselves into the ring for the UFC championship. I would transpire myself to watch that one.

Am I the only one impressed with the bastard-child descriptions? Well done sir!

 And a Star Wars reference, JoseMonkey? Really?Next thing you know and you'll be like this dork:hxxp://

The event "will emanate from the HP Pavillion?" [sic]

Seriously, that is a werid freakin' way to put it. (And, btw, it's Pavilion -- with one L.)

"Emanating from" something implies that there is a source / origin and that something is coming out of it. You know, like a horrible smell emanating from the trash can. Or from your writing. (BOOSH!)

I suppose you could say that the broadcast is technically emanating from that location, but that seems a bit of a stretch. How about one of these instead?

"The event will take place at the HP Pavilion."
"The event will be held at the HP Pavilion."

or, if you're feeling frisky

"The event will transpire at the HP Pavilion."

(Of course, there is debate among language critics and other professional douche bags about that use of the word transpire, but I think we'd give you a pass.)

See, that wasn't so hard.

Help me Ben Fowlkes, you're our only hope.

Breaking News:

Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennet is out of his June 26th fight with KJ Noons at an upcoming Strikeforce event. He is currently hospitalized after being injured in an unfortunate hit and run accident at an on ramp on the !-5 freeway in southern Los Angeles. He apparently had not eaten in approximately 31 hours, at least according to an important piece of evidence recovered by detectives at the scene of the accident. He has suffered multiple fractures to the chest, pelvis, both arms, the neck, and was found choking on fragments of gold teeth and a crack-cocaine smoking device.

He has been airlifted to an area hospital and is receiving as good a quality of medical treatment as a homeless racially-challenged non-medical insurance bearing individual could possibly hope to receive in this modern American economy. Scheduled to make an appearance on his behalf is newly discovered and unknown mystery fighter "Kid Kaos". Here's Jim with the weather...

To make my van soundproof
I spent 36k
So I can abduct kids any time of day
I'm no pervert
I don't rape, just kill
Then I throw the little bastards on my barbecue grill
Tastes great with Dimetapp and A-1 sauce
Love to eat that stuff and watch Who's The Boss
Enough of that trash about Tony Danza,
this is supposed to be about my soundproof van
So let me tell you,
I've got enough room in this thing
to fit how many children?
At least 16
Now I got my van plan back on track
and I can ditch the ducktape behind the burlap sack
But I'm still stuck and I've got all of the tools
If you've got kids
better have 'em homeschooled
I steal kids up by the junglegym
and then I make lampshades outta their skin

Thank you, Mr. Wombstretcha. Your royalty check is in the mail.

@ Monseiur Missand throwpee, So many layers, oh so many strange, dark layers
ReX13- June 2, 2010 at 8:37 pm
You guys, don't worry, Mike won't pull the van over. Last time he did that, some jerkass banged into the fender and took off. Now MRuss is all paranoid.
Almost North- June 2, 2010 at 8:13 pm
Well I thought it was funny anyway.
64SQUARES- June 2, 2010 at 7:18 pm
@Mike Russell...Cover the important stuff like Krazy Horse being out. You are letting me down.
Dickface- June 2, 2010 at 7:11 pm

Are you clairvoyant or did I miss something? Where is it that Crazyhorse is out?
Mr_Misanthropy- June 2, 2010 at 7:05 pm
Let me guess... he sold his gold teeth for crack and now he doesn't have the money to get fitted for a new mouthpiece in time for June 26? Or somebody hit him in the head with a steel pipe?
64SQUARES- June 2, 2010 at 6:58 pm
You are not talking about what is truly important. Charles Bennett is out. f*%$ Pat Healy vs. Josh Thomson. I wanted Krazey Horse. And While i am at it F*&$ Fedor
DazedNConfused- June 2, 2010 at 6:47 pm
Im betting on this with no regard for logical thinking. Werdum, Bennet, Smith Parlaaaay.

Here come the Benjamiiins. Although by the time of the Fedor fight ill be back to being homeless drunk and will most likely go back to swinging from fedors cozy nutsack. woo.

This card already looks better than the boring last couple UFC's. Seriously, Rampage you suck. I was rooting for you simply so I could see you lose even worse to Shogun. Now what the fuck?
nicey- June 2, 2010 at 6:46 pm
LOL. The only reason I got in this van is you said you had some candy. Go to hell rapist.

 Fuck you guys whine a lot. Keep it up and I'm pulling the van over.

@Mr Mifter

Don't insult the former UFC champ like that.
