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

UPDATE: Amazon Forest Combat Goes Down at 8:00 pm ET Tonight and We’ll Have the Tape-Delayed Stream Tomorrow

(Main event, huh? Interesting choice.)

Just a friendly reminder that the inaugural Amazon Forest Combat show is tonight and for those of you who want to watch it, we’ll have a stream Thursday afternoon. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’re told that there was a scheduling issue and even the networks in Brazil who were to carry the event live are not airing it until tomorrow and this weekend, respectively.

Fair warning: Chael Sonnen tells us the Internet quality in Brazil is slightly better than dial-up, so the quality may be a bit less than 720p.

Anyway, the card for this show is a good one and definitely worth watching. ┬áIt should be live around 4:00 pm ET Thursday, or so we’re told.

Satoshi Ishii versus Paulo Filho should be a great scrap, as should Ronys Torres versus Drew Fickett and Lopes Dileno versus Ian MacCall. Antonio Braga Neto versus Maiquel Falcao has potential as long as both fighters engage and it doesn’t end up looking like Harris-Falcao. One way to ensure this would be to have Neto dress up like Falcao’s wife. Too soon?

Although the expiration date on the Royler Gracie-Masakatsu Ueda fight may have passed some time ago, it’s worth watching simply because it might be Royler’s last bout.

If Karo Parisyan is in as good as shape as we’re told he’s in (and judging by this photo he is) and has been taking his training seriously since being back with Gokor Chivichyan, Jordan Smith might be in trouble.

For those of you who are JuJu Panicat fans, she’ll be the ring card girl at the event.

Check back in tomorrow for the live stream of the event and don’t ever say we don’t look after the Potato Nation.

BTW, if you watched the Fights for BOPE on HDNet recently, I think Juju was the ringcard girl for that, too. And they were not allowed to start each fight until she had walked around the ring with the round 1 card.
