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

*UPDATED* Paul Daley is Just F*cking With Us Now

Either Paul Daley is getting sick of the constant ribbing he’s taken over the past few years about missing weight a handful of times and has decided to pay back the MMA media by throwing sending them into a tizzy, or the British welterweight has jumped up a weight class between bouts. Our money is on the former.

“Semtex” told reporters yesterday during an open media workout in Montreal that he had just over 24 hours to drop 40 pounds to make the 170-pound limit for his Ringside bout against Luigi Fioravanti. For those keeping score, most fighters drop between five and 12 pounds the week of the fight, but 40 is pretty much unheard of the day before an event, unless you’re Anthony Johnson.

When asked how he planned on dropping such an immense amount of mass, he deadpanned:

“A lot of shitting, a lot of sitting in a hot bath and a lot of saunaing, and not eating anything. I might even have to chop something off that weighs a lot. We’ll just leave it at that and we’ll move swiftly on.”

To add fuel to his story, Daley posted the following photo on his Facebook page of what he planned to eat after today’s weigh-ins:

I’m not sure if this spread is part of The Dolce Diet or if it’s of Paul’s own creation, but he announced this morning that he was only a pound off the mark five hours from weigh-ins.

Looks like the media got punked.

UPDATED: Video proof that “Semtex” was fucking with everyone. He weighed in at 170.4 lbs.

I'm shocked nobody has said something along these lines: How about not being so fucking heavy before a fight? I mean, is it somehow a surprise what weight class you're supposed to be fighting at? Is it impossible to actually genuinely lose weight? Bullllllllsheeeeeetz.

No way can he can drop 40lbs in 24 hrs and be able to fight. He'd be lucky to make it to the hospital. I will not go into detail about why this would be a life threatening thing to do, but trust me, it would be! He's either bullshitting or he's mentally retarded; maybe both...

Eating that phone should help shuttle nutrients into his carb-hungry muscle cells.

If he set his ego aside right before weigh-ins, he should make it no problem.
