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

Quick Hits: Couture on Kimbo, Lutter on UFC Rumors, CBS on Elite XC Lineup

- ESPN Radio’s Ball Park Frank talks with Randy Couture about a number of topics in this video (props to Steve Cofield), but perhaps most interesting is Couture’s assessment of Kimbo Slice‘s upcoming match with Ken Shamrock. As Couture astutely points out (around the 2:55 mark), a quick KO of Shamrock does more to affirm his over-the-hill status than it does to prove Kimbo’s worth as an MMA fighter. At the same time, if Kimbo goes back and forth with Shamrock will that only serve to prove that he’s not the fighter “Buzz” Berry is? Best case scenario for Kimbo is he looks good, Shamrock looks good, Kimbo wins via late KO. That’s also the least plausible scenario.

- Travis Lutter tells MMA Rated there is absolutely no truth to rumors he might be headed back to the UFC. Though it was originally reported that he might face Joe Doerksen in the Octagon, Lutter says neither he nor UFC matchmaker Joe Silva knew where the rumor came from, which means it’s back to the small time for Lutter. He did have a prediction for the Anderson Silva-Patrick Cote bout, though: “Cote is going to get murdered.” Come on, Travis, don’t sugar coat it.

- CBS executives say they will show five fights from ‘Elite XC: Heat’ on Saturday, even if it will probably cause them to run over the allotted two-hour space. Some fans wondered whether CBS had cut “Ninja” Rua-Benji Radach from the broadcast when the bout wasn’t mentioned in recent promos, but Executive VP Kelly Kahl says the fight is still on and will lead off the CBS portion of the card. That means Elite XC will have to keep its general dicking around to a minimum and still hope for a couple quick finishes to keep from going over. It’s something you’ll want to keep in mind if you’re planning on DVR-ing this sucker.

The problem with EXC and Affliction teaming up, is now the gate and potential PPV revenues are split between 2 sets of executives, 2 sets of personal, and down the line. Some people will have to lose some jobs to keep that partnership up.

Frank Trigg should listen to Randy Couture speak. The latter demonstrates an appropriate rate of speech and pauses in the right places. Trigg sounds like he's suffering from verbal diarrhea, running independent thoughts together to the point that the listener misses the message that he is trying to communicate. I just want to shut him down! He should tape himself speaking and play it back so he can realize how easily listeners would want to tune him out.
