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

Is Pat Miletich Returning to the UFC?

After years of estrangement, legendary MMA fighter/trainer Pat Miletich and the UFC are seeing eye-to-eye again. As Miletich told MMA Madness following a meeting with Dana White at UFC 101, "We touched on me potentially fighting in the UFC again, but nothing was concrete. The door was left open, so that was good.” Now, as Bloody Elbow points out, the Croatian Sensation’s fighter profile has returned to

Miletich has only competed twice since leaving the UFC in 2002, losing to Renzo Gracie by submission at an IFL event in 2006, and knocking out Thomas Denny last December at Adrenaline 2. We’ve previously argued for his induction into the UFC Hall of Fame, and hopefully this is a sign that Miletich will be honored at a future event. But my God, could the 41-year-old really be returning to the Octagon? Sure, the UFC let Mark Coleman fight after inducting him into the Hall of Fame, but that’s because they needed somebody to throw at Lesnar. The justification for bringing back Miletich is much hazier — unless, of course, he’ll be fighting alongside Dennis Hallman and Phil Baroni on TUF 11. (No, I’m not letting this idea go. Get used to it.)

didnt think about the EA game but i think Dana is for sure trying to monopolize MMA. UFS is Running through the old names that could potentially give fan draw to other small venues trying to come up. Greedy bastards

@ Ed M
good thought

On a lighter note, that Pat M has a serious chin on him doesn't he. Did he beat Jay Leno up for that thing.

Looks like don frye won't be joining TUF 11 too bad

Don Frye on Dana---
“The position of douchebag fight promoter, who thinks he’s tough because he hangs out with fighters and insults fighters – that position’s already taken. We don’t need that, OK?”

Ben, if you are right about this TUF 11 fantasy of yours...I'll have to do something for you...either tickets to something or my chocolate starfish...

Dana's doing all the old school contracts to keep these guys off of the EA game.

I don't know if I like this or not. Just imagine the possibilities. Baroni, Ortiz, Coleman and now Militic. Its fucking fantastic for old school throwback fights but its no fucking doubt that all of those men will be energy sapping lugs in the cage.

Phil Baroni in the TUF house? Worst. Idea. Eva.

Anyone know if Dan Severn won this weekend?

I have no more interest in seeing over the hill washed up old guys fight eachother than i have in watching amateur no name cans fight eachother like what currently happens on that show.

TUF 10, obviously, is the exception. Will be the first season i ever paid any attention to.

the more you talk about this TUF 11 idea, the more i realize that i won't settle for anything else.

I know you think they are making a division for what was it? 33 and up? They could call it the "Masters" division or "Senior" division.

I like it. Although. I think Randy would rule both LHW and HW in the "Seniors" div !
