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

[PHOTO] It Looks Like BJ Penn Isn’t the Only One In Ridiculous Shape for UFC on FOX 5

Remember that flabby, somewhat haggard version of Mauricio Rua that showed up to about every other one of his fights in the UFC with bum knees and a shit gas tank? He died. And now his freakishly fit doppleganger is here to bang all of our girlfriends and wives. So I have both, big whoop wannafightaboutit?

As was the case for BJ Penn, it appears that Shogun has whipped himself into damn near the best shape we have ever seen him in for his upcoming fight with Alexander Gustafsson. And it’s¬†surprisingly¬†appropriate; both Rua and Penn are aging legends looking to make one last run at a title shot, and both men must get past two highly-touted young bucks in order to do so. And no one wants to show up out of shape on the same network that airs The Choice. A loss is a loss, but having Pauly D mock your love handles with a laser pointer is a punishment no person on this earth deserves.

Although Shogun has been given a slightly better chance of pulling off the upset than Penn, both men are considerable underdogs heading into Saturday’s event, so make sure to swing by CP at 8 p.m. EST to see if these two will rise from the ashes or go down in flames. And if you’re in the Boston/Dorchester area, hit up either Karma or myself on Twitter to see which dive bar we’ll be catching the fights from and come join us. We apologize in advance for getting you thrown out of said dive bar, but that bouncer was totally giving one of us the stink eye.

Shut up bitches he looks great. Cynical fucks.

For me what gives it away that he's in shape here is the fact that it looks like he's got some extra skin hanging around. Must have lost some fat quickly!

In fairness to J.J., that's "in shape" for Shogun. It's a relative "in shape", to be sure, but for Rua it's impressive.

Clearly he's subtly flexing like I do when I'm at the beach. Nothing about this picture says hes in ridiculous shape. Your dick must explode every time you see GSP.

Really "flabby, somewhat haggard version of Mauricio Rua"??? He's just sucking in his gut...

THAT's in shape?

I really hope BJ and Shogun have Therapeutic Use Exemptions (T.U.E.) for "whatever" they are on or else the FOX card is gonna get hammered with at least 2 dirty piss tests.
Nate Diaz will test positive for piss and vinegar though - which is not against the rules.

Except for that bicep and handstrap, I would think Shogun has never trained in his life.
