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

Post-Holiday MMA Catch-Up

(Junior Dos Santos spars with Mauricio Rua at the Team Nogueira gym in Rio.)

Even though we’ve been pretty much off the clock since Tuesday, and didn’t post any actual news, you honestly didn’t miss much. But let’s get you up to speed…

– Junior dos Santos, the Team Nogueira heavyweight who scored a shocking upset knockout of Fabricio Werdum during his UFC debut in October, will meet new UFC signee Stefan Struve at UFC 95 (February 21st, London). Struve is a Dutch fighter whose 16-2 record includes 12 wins by submission.

– Cristiane "Cris Cyborg" Santos has signed a one-fight deal with Canadian MMA organization XMMA, and will fight at their February 27th event against an opponent to be named later. (Don’t get your hopes up, it won’t be Carano.)

– Though MMA competition is currently banned in Ontario, the UFC will be pushing hard to do a stadium event in Toronto in 2009.

Frank Mir is openly bitching about how he has to go five rounds tomorrow night. Don’t worry, buddy, we’re sure Big Nog will be kind enough to sub you before the fourth.

– Satoshi Ishii is a total UFC mark.

– WEC bantamweight Will Ribeiro, who suffered a serious head injury during a motorcycle accident in Brazil, is starting to make some recovery. According to Ribeiro’s manager Ed Soares, "the doctor seems very hopeful."

Market share has 0 to do with the lack of virus and worms on OSX. Its the Unix platform that it is built on.

Common misunderstnadment

You are safe Than. There are currently no viruses written for OSX. Gain just a little more market share, then worry.

Mir's lack of cardio really isn't his fault. I would imagine it's hard to take a full breath with all that sand in his vagina..err... i mean lungs.

I still hate Frank Mir. I used to like him until the ultimate fighter. What douchebag. It is nice that his name is out there but compared to Big Nog he is a complete asswipe.

1. The gate on Mir's mic is a bit strong, and the camera mans tripod is drunk.

2. Way to go Sherdog...

If one didn't think Mir's cardio was shit before, they sure as hell better believe it now.

Nog should just Kalib Starnes the fight until the 4th round. Perhaps Mir will be crying so much for having to work more than 15 minutes that his corner will toss in the towel.
