Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Strikeforce Booking Alert: Mousasi vs. Kyle, Gurgel vs. Duarte

According to a new report, former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi could meet Mike Kyle at the promotion’s September 10th card (venue TBA).

The two fighters were originally scheduled to meet at the ‘Diaz vs. Daley’ card in April, but Kyle was forced to withdraw due to a broken hand; Mousasi wound up fighting to a disappointing draw against late-replacement Keith Jardine. The “Armenian Assassin” is already slated to defend his DREAM light-heavyweight belt against Hiroshi Izumi in Tokyo on July 16th.

As for Kyle, the American Kickboxing Academy moneyweight vet most recently suffered a TKO loss against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva — after stepping in as an injury replacement for Valentijn Overeem last December — but he’s 2-0 as a light-heavyweight under the Strikeforce banner, with stoppage wins over Rafael Cavalcante and Ron “Abongo” Humphrey. In other booking news…

Jorge Gurgel has confirmed that he will face Joe Duarte in the main event of Strikeforce Challengers 18 (August 12th; Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas). In March, Zoila’s husband snapped a two-fight Strikeforce losing streak by choking out journeyman Billy Vaughn in 44 seconds. Duarte, who you may vaguely remember from TUF 8, is on a four-fight win streak, most recently submitting Saad Awad in April.

I remember joe duarte from when CP told me he was super strong and the next big thing at lightweight.

One can't help but wonder if he would have a bigger following if he had a cooler nickname like "Hot Saucy" Mousasi, or Gegard "Mo' Saucy" Mousasi.

Yeah, I really wish Mousassi would find his own 'go' button. Okay, man, you've got the composure thing down. Like Zen-master down. Let's find the 'holy shit I better kill this fucker or I'm gonna die' frame of mind. Right now your mind tool-box only looks half full to me. I'm a gay-guard fan but it's been slipping lately. I want to see your pulse go above 120 next fight.

i never want to see jardine fight in the ufc again. i just don't want to hear rogan and goldberg day herky jerky anymore.
someone should tell mousasi that the loser of this fight will be anally raped. he might show some actual emotion.
