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

Quote Stew: Bisping, Quarry, Hunt + More

(James Irvin: Fighting his way off of the C-list.)

“He’s lost his last two fights now, against Franklin and Anderson Silva, so the UFC’s decision makes sense. No fighter can guarantee winning a fight but you can go into a bout in shape. If you can’t go the distance then you’re not preparing well enough and you’re not taking your job seriously. We work for the UFC and it’s our job to get off our a**es and train and be in shape. That’s what we get paid for and if we don’t do that then we’re not doing our job. That’s the way I look at it.”
Michael Bisping on the recent sacking of Travis Lutter.

“I just decided to make light of the situation and be like, hey man, this is what I’m seeing. I’m seeing a running man. That just came to me out of nowhere. When there were ten seconds left I just said to myself, all right, I’m calling the technique the ‘rock-hammer.’ I don’t know if that name will stick or not.”
Nate Quarry on the instant-classic ending of his fight with Kalib Starnes.

“I’m just so happy that he would even take the fight against me. I consider him an ‘A’ level fighter, and I consider myself a ‘C’ level fighter, maybe a ‘B’ level because I just beat Houston trying to claw my way up to the top. So for him to take a step down and fight me, I’m greatly appreciative of the guy, who is someone I look up to as one of those top tier fighters.”
James Irvin on his UFC 85 opponent, Rashad Evans.

“Mentally I think BJ has some quit in him. I’ve seen it, I’ve seen it in the past. If you push him, he’ll quit.”
Sean Sherk on his UFC 84 grudge match with BJ Penn.

“Now that the K1 thing is out of the way it’s all good baby: all MMA and MMA only. These guys (DREAM) want me to fight Aleksander (Emelianeko) in about three weeks time on May 11th! I was like no way because it’s too short a time with no training. I don’t want to risk fighting like that. But if they compensate me enough for taking that risk then it’s all good and I’ll fight. DREAM’s plan was to see how Fedor (Emelianeko) goes and when and if he wins the DREAM title, and then I will fight him…First time I fought him, my wrestling wasn’t great — actually it was pretty shit but I did alright with him. This time I will be ready.”
Mark Hunt, who may eventually be battling the Emelianenko brothers in DREAM. Hunt was submitted by Fedor via armbar at PRIDE Shockwave on New Year’s Eve 2006.

The Rock Hammer? Pssh. Back when I was in School, we used to take up that posture, run at each other full-speed and collide. We called it Retarded Jousting.

Big Chris that was some funny stuff.
I guess juice shark was talking about BJ getting his rib broke and not tapping haha. In order to push BJ you have to hurt him not just takedown and lay on him while he works his BJJ on your overjuiced ass.

Mark Hunt might have a chance in MMA if hes wrestling has improved after all he got the weight advantage most the time.

I wish I could say that looked like a normal body type. If it is, Jimmy Irvin is one veiny motherfucker.

When discussing Mark Hunt, it's customary to precede his name with "noted fatty fatty fat fat" so that people remember which out-of-shape guy you're talking about.

maybe if Sean Sherk had some quit in himself he might still be champ....Where is Dr. Drew when you need him.....
