Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Rumor Alert: Could Shane Carwin vs. Cain Velasquez Be on Tap For UFC 103?

Shane Carwin and some girls
(Yep, that’s the face you make when you realize that you’re now famous enough to get laid without making any effort at all.)

No one is more eager to find out what awaits heavyweight contenders Shane Carwin and Cain Velasquez than we are, but from the sound of things some people may be jumping the gun a bit regarding rumors that the two are headed for a clash at UFC 103.  Inside Fights says sources have told them that Carwin and Velasquez could be the co-main event for the September event in Dallas, Texas, right alongside Mike Swick vs. Matt Hughes.  And yeah, they clarify that the bout has not been agreed to, but Carwin says it hasn’t even been discussed:

“Since we are on the rumor destruction train, no I am not fighting on UFC 103,” said Carwin. “I have not heard from the UFC for some time now. I am without my training partners and coaches as they are on a “camping trip”, and again, I have not heard anything about fighting anyone yet.”

Two questions come to mind here: 1) by putting quotations around “camping trip,” is Carwin trying to suggest that his buddies are really off doing something else that they don’t want their wives to know about? and 2) is it possible that Carwin is just the last to know about what the UFC has planned for him?

The first question might be better left untouched, but the answer to the second is, unlikely.  If the UFC did have designs on putting Carwin and Velasquez into a heavyweight contender match less than three months from now, that’d be the kind of thing they’d want to run by Carwin, who recently had surgery on his broken nose and whose training was interrupted by the recovery.  If dude is going to be in a co-main event twelve weeks or so from now, he needs to know sooner rather than later.

The chances that we’ll eventually see Carwin vs. Velasquez seem pretty good, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be at UFC 103.  Until we get something more official, like one of the fighters at least acknowledging that the fight has been mentioned to him, let’s try and stay calm.

Carwin by KO in 30 seconds. Sets up Lesnar vs Carwin and much needed re-enforcement done to the octagon before they break through it.

Yeah I doubt this fight unless one of them has the belt. Why derail one of maybe both of there hot upcoming HWs. UFC doesn't have many big stars in the HW division. Unlike like a few years ago.

Best Caption of the month!?!
Those 2 on the right are a little fishy and they all dressed in black and blue. I'm betting thats what you nuts will turn if you stick it in the wrong hag. Sorry they look alright but the hottie to the left is a keeper....if she passed the blood test.

Cain Velasquez AKA Mexican Fedor .

The two on the right are busted as hell but the one on the left is totally doable. I love hot chicks. Now to get famous as a fighter so they will love me back....

That's just like the UFC to not inform their employees when they're fighting next or when they're fired. Hope the rumor is true though, that would be awesome.

Those aren't long black socks, they're boots

Damn. Carwin got enough to feed the needy.
Dubbayoo- June 23, 2009 at 7:39 pm
It's the Shane Train. I like that they were thoughtful enough to dress the same. Which will let Shane enjoy it as a group of three chicks, as opposed to actual individuals. But why doesn't the chick on the left a long black sock on her right leg like the others? Oh, maybe this is the night she earned it. Kinda like a black belt, but a sock.

Whenever it happens, Velasquez will get (for lack of a better term) Mollywhopped.
Nut Puncher 9000- June 23, 2009 at 5:17 pm
Sorry CP. This fight will not happen anytime soon and the reason is that the UFC will not derail the only two up and coming HWs that they have to pull PPV #'s (and therefore they will be given two seperate paths to the title)

I thought it sounded flimsy at first (who is "inside fights"?), and now after you reminded me about Carwins recent injury I'm thinking even more so.
Dmonicideals- June 23, 2009 at 5:02 pm
Naw guys, they two on the outside are definitely men, but the one on his left arm can totally get fucked.

So this article was to tell us that there is no news? You guys are tricky. What's next, an article about how this is an MMA website?

Those aren't exactly porn stars or Andrei Arlovski's leftovers.

Or women.

That bitch is definately packing some sausage.... I still might hit from the back though!

Priceless caption CP. Good show.

I think the girl on the right is hiding her pants...
