Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Reminder: UFC 115 Countdown Show On Versus Tonight at Midnight ET

(Video courtesy YouTube/

As much as I dig the production and polish of the UFC Primetime series, I still enjoy watching the traditional UFC Countdown shows because they offer more than just an inside glimpse into the camps and pre-fight lives of the two main event fighters. 

Tonight’s UFC 115 countdown features interviews and training footage featuring Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell, Rich "Ace" Franklin, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and Pat "HD" Barry.

I don’t care what anyone says. I’m looking forward to the Liddell-Frankln bout. Both guys seem focused and in shape and I’ll bet a Cage Potato t-shirt that someone’s getting knocked out in this one. For the over-under, I’ll bet that at least four (4) outlets will try to be smart by using a line like Franklin ‘Aces’ The Iceman’ or Liddell Ices Franklin or some variation of the sentiment.

One thing’s for sure: watching the clip above, I’m glad that I never have to hold pads for Pat Barry. Duke Roufus looks like he’s in pain every time Pat’s shin smacks leather. Imagine taking one of his kicks to the leg? No thanks.

"Countdown to UFC 115" airs on Versus at midnight ET/PT.

Replays of the one-hour show will air Thursday at 10 p.m. ET, Friday at 1 a.m. ET and Saturday at 6 p.m. ET/PT on Spike TV.

Yeah gotta admit, I've still got a thing for Lizzie McGuire, all those Disney hotties, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella Ariel, and yeah Princess jasmine all got smoken hot cartoon bodacious bods, wish I could draw myself something like that!

@El Guapo and guys are f'n awesome. But don't forget about Princess Jasmine...Aladin is one lucky bastard. As far as the kids are concerned, I could probably throw in Jessica Rabbit and Holli Would and they'd think they were still in some sort of theme park. If there were a Tilted Kilt somewhere close by I'd be the one in a theme park...or at least one of the happiest places on Earth.

The Mermaid one with a bangin body and seashell bra, BTW. Not the one creepy one with a huge shnouwzer who appears here from time to time. El Guapo LOL, I got daughters to dude

I've seen the videos of Pat Barry doing shit for real that should only be done with wires on the set of an Ang Lee flick. I think Barry is just beginning to show what he's capable of but Mirko is getting over the hill and has been in a protracted slump for quite a while now.

On the fightpicker people are going all Pat Barry crazy?! I saw Barry in Montreal, no way he's landing a head kick on Crow Rock. Cro Cop crushed a can, has like half a year of sports psychology visits under his belt and a legacy to protect back home.....I think Cro Cop is going to look good in this fight, that's match making right there Joe Silva.

There's a Hooters next to Angels Stadium that'll show the fight, which is about 5 minutes from Disneyland. The younger kids won't exactly confuse a Hooters gal with Snow White or Sleeping Beauty, but you MIGHT convince them they're Ariel..

Anyone else hear all the excuses Gilbert was making about his first fight?
rlh61- June 8, 2010 at 1:08 pm
Yup, I'm stuck in the 90's too. I like Rich, but Chuck is my all-time fav fighter...gotta take the Iceman in this one.

With Tito gone, I'm struggling to find someone to really dislike on this card. I'm sure there are a few I don't like, but I like a card where there is someone to really hate...Kos/Daley/Tito/Bisbing/Diaz(s)/ etc...I guess Yvel will have to do.

Speaking of the card, is there any place close to Disneyland/California Adventure that has the fights? I know ESPN Zone is right there, but not sure if they will have the fights on. I'm taking the kiddos (and the niece/nephews) on a vacation, so it will have to be someplace that will allow a semi-rowdy group with kids ages 4, 6, 9, 12 and 15. And one rowdy 36 year-old wannabe.

the guys liddel has lost to is nothing to be ashamed of. will he ever be champ i doubt it. but is he completly washed up...nah im not gonna say it just yet :P everyone hes fought has ko power and theyve all shown it too sooo...yeah
Lorenzoe553- June 8, 2010 at 1:01 pm
i mean liddels been ko'd by jackson who became champion in beating him evans and rua who both ended becoming champions after beating liddel. and jardine had a great gameplan kicking the shit out of liddel. the way i see it its about who u lose to and how u lose to them.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 8, 2010 at 12:53 pm
Well, I guess at least twelve is six times two.
Almost North- June 8, 2010 at 12:44 pm
Pat "Yes he is still alive" Baaaaaaaa-----rrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyy
ktfo- June 8, 2010 at 12:43 pm
im definitely more pumped about the barry-crocop fight. barry is a beast.
just some dong- June 8, 2010 at 12:32 pm
White Mumbles will have Permashiner in trouble a few times, but he'll end up frustrated and picked apart. Permashiner by entertaining UD.
BONGTAR- June 8, 2010 at 12:23 pm
i lived my whole life based on that!!
ReX13- June 8, 2010 at 12:20 pm
Look, if you're not first, you're last. Truth.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 8, 2010 at 12:18 pm
Fifth...sixth?... I guess I'll just go lay down... today's probably gonna suck anyways... not at all, don't mention it...
Cock_Chestnar- June 8, 2010 at 12:13 pm
I'll take you up on that t-shirt deal. Your CP T-shirt vs my lucky mustard stained beater.
ReX13- June 8, 2010 at 12:08 pm
The Handsome>> i'll take the Iceman. As discussed in an early post, i'm stuck in the 90's and still got love for Chuck.
El Guapo- June 8, 2010 at 11:56 am
Permashiner vs White Mumbles... Who ya got?

I'll take Eyeblack. Iceman's been melting away for some time now. The guy's a legend, but Father Time is undeafeated. Immortal even..
