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

So Aleksander Emelianenko Actually Trains. With Mariusz Pudzianowski, Go Figure.

Video Props: MiddleEasy via

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, the day of a UFC event is always a pretty slow news day. Aside from last second hype for the event and the occasional minor league show with people you’ve actually heard of, we have to get creative with our definition of “news”. So when MiddleEasy posted a video of Aleksander Emelianenko training with World’s Strongest Man turned MMA fighter Mariusz Pudzianowski, it was a pretty easy decision to pass this along.

I’ll be honest, I kind of assumed that Aleksander’s busy schedule of crushing cans, getting prison tattoos and not having hepatitis left him zero time to actually train. For that matter, I also assumed that when you’re a decorated Russian criminal and Fedor Emelianenko’s younger brother, you wouldn’t need to practice to be really good at hurting people. Different strokes, I suppose.

If you’re expecting this session to be two guys swilling vodka and pulling airplanes, prepare for disappointment.  After warming up, Mariusz Pudzianowski, who rocks flesh colored spandex shorts throughout the session, holds pads for Aleksander. It’s a pretty random pair to see training together, but it makes sense when you consider that Aleksander will be fighting in Poland in October. No word yet on whether Mariusz will be on this card as well.

OK, who here knows that is best to use pastel colors such as baby blue, foam green, and mauve with purple offsets to calm people.
I am sure if one looked around that gym they could find lighter shades of pink and yellow as well! Looks like some of the jails I've volunteered to spent the night in.
Just as soon as I typed this, I see two final bit of critical intelligence. One, these fuckers are wearing TapOut, and two from the poster in the background, they are likely in Poland.
Isn't there a word for that, Pollock.
Get the fuck out of here...someone gets a "D-"
