Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Quick Hits: Winky Wright Telling It Like It Is, Affliction Wants Chris Horodecki

(‘You’re looking at Don King’s hair behind me, aren’t you? Man, every damn time.’)

In an interview with, Winky Wright diagnoses boxing’s problem by contrasting it with what MMA is doing right:

“When I was coming up, more top fighters fought each other. They all wanted to prove they were the best in their weight class, not in the WBA, the IBF, but the best, period. But now the promoters and the networks get in the way and we’re losing a lot of fans because of it. The promoters milk the prospects, they don’t match them against top fighters. The networks allow too many easy fights.”

“I would definitely say (boxing is) declining as the best are not fighting the best. In the NBA they don’t just cancel the playoffs and have the Lakers against some sorry team. No one would watch. That’s why the UFC is gaining so much in popularity. The best fight the best and the fans love to see it.”

Winky is spot on, here. It just makes you wonder if we shouldn’t be interpreting this as a cautionary tale.

- In other news, is reporting that Chris Horodecki has been officially released from the IFL, at his request, and is entertaining a couple different offers at the moment. The cockeyed financial optimists at the AFL have supposedly made a “very generous offer” (they know he’s not a woman, right?), but Affliction has said they’ll beat it in order to get “The Polish Hammer” on their October 11 show. The clock’s ticking…

Whoever runs this shit get that grandma fucking cougar shit the fuck off of here. The only reason to fuck those old bags is to get that money. Demi Moore is a man and Sarandon is more wrinkled than my nutsack. Pull the young honeys if you can, if not then keep sinking it into those used up, loose, not so fresh, grannies.

Notice Winky said the UFC not MMA? Right now, it seems that the new fight leagues are just trying to showcase their moneymakers, they are going to the old boxing tricks of padding records and then have a big payday fight when they get (their stars)to 20-0.

Older woman seduces younger man. Sound familiar? It's a scene from people can meet like-minded local younger/older friends or partners. Actress Demi Moore is 15 years older than her husband, actor Ashton Kutcher. But high-profile Hollywood couples like Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins (12 years her junior)-- who met and began dating on filming an on-screen romance in the 1988 movie "Bull Durham" -- have proven that life can indeed imitate art when it comes to matters of the heart.

Winky's right. I was a boxing fan for year until I discovered MMA. Now I barely watch. The best just rarely fight eachother.

Boxing puts such a premium on an unbeaten record, that the best fighters rarely get in the ring togethor. Having nine belts and 40 promoters is a big part of the problem, though it does at least get the fighters paid.

I'd love to see the Polack Hammer match up against some top comp too. In a cage where he can't cheat and hold the ropes or throw himself out of the ring when he's losing. The I'd like to see him get his arm controlled and get POUNDED the fuck out like the Lion did to him. Overrated. Winky is absolutely right, especially because he is one of those best fighters that nobody wants to fight.

I'd love to see Chris Horodecki match up against some top competition. This kid was definitely losing out on it while staying with IFL. On a side note: since he was released it does indicate that Zuffa isn't interested in re-signing him over with UFC.
