Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Strikeforce News Roundup: Fedor’s Injury Update, Jerry Millen Violates CagePotato Ban + More

(“I’m gettin’ too calm and emotionless for this shit.” Photo courtesy of Sherdog.)

— Though it was initially rumored that Fedor Emelianenko could be out-of-action for 4-6 months due to a jacked-up left thumb he suffered in the first round of his fight against Brett Rogers, his condition has been upgraded. Sherdog reports that the Last Emperor underwent surgery yesterday to fix his injury, and will have a half-cast removed in just 4-6 weeks:

[T]he fighter’s reps said two pins were placed in Emelianenko’s hand to correct the dislocation, and that the bone had not fractured… Emelianenko also said that his nose was not fractured, as was earlier suspected…Emelianenko said he planned to return to training, sans striking, upon his return to Russia later this week. M-1 officials said Emelianenko could headline his second co-promoted Strikeforce card in the first quarter of 2010.

— Cristiane “Cris Cyborg” Santos is expected to make her first Strikeforce title defense against Marloes Coenen on January 30th in Miami, according to MMA Weekly. Santos was originally slated to compete on last Saturday’s “Fedor vs. Rogers” card, but her return was pushed back after she suffered an injury during the 2009 ADCC‘s in September.

— When Deray Davis and Mark Miller‘s scheduled fight was eliminated from the “Fedor vs. Rogers” undercard at the last minute due to time constraints, the fighters lost money from sponsorships and were reportedly only paid their to-show purses. Following a public outcry for the fighters’ fair treatment, Strikeforce explained that Davis and Miller were paid their win bonuses, but only after the organization unsuccessfully tried to move their fight onto a local Chicago card. Their sponsorship money, unfortunately, still went up in smoke.

— A month-and-a-half ago, we officially banned the pathetic and laughable practice of fighters offering to get it on for free. M-1 hype-man Jerry Millen apparently did not get that particular memo:

“If these guys in the UFC truly wanted to fight Fedor, they’d find a way,” Millen recently told Radio. “Come to his training camp. Come to Stary Oskol, and we’ll do three, five-minute rounds in the ring or the cage. We’ll do it for fun. If you really want to fight him for competition, and it’s not about the money for the guys in the UFC, then tell Brock Lesnar to jump his ass on a plane, take a train, and come to Stary Oskol. If these guys really want to fight Fedor, then come to Stary Oskol and lets get it on there for no money.”

Sounds good, Jer-Bear. And maybe after that, you can go fuck yourself for no money.

831 all you got is mistakes I made typing? that's all you got to bang on? seriously? that is as weak as you are, and unoriginal and predictable. sad to see you wimp out like that.

One two seriously you are dumbfuck and you don't ever need to type here again, you are delusional.
I look forward to watching strikeFARCE fall just to watch you cry. just like the haters who thoughts ASSfliction was going to topple the great empire of UFC. Seriously? stop taking the stupid pills.
One Two- November 11, 2009 at 2:26 pm
As a fan i feel its my duty to hate on the evil empire, UFC does have some good shows but they put on some shit shows too. i get just as excited for Strikeforce dream Sengoku and K-1 as I do for UFC cards.

The UFCs heavyweight division is a joke being champ of the UFC HW division is like being Jenga champion of the cerebral palsy clinic.
AussieJosh- November 11, 2009 at 1:40 pm
Jerry Millen does have a point! Brock could get a few of his trainers together jump on a flight to Russia and bang with Fedor, old school backyard Kimbo style! a bunch of guys could film it with there camra phones and put it up on the net! Maybe Brock cares more about money then proving he is the number one heavyweight!?
831 Son- November 11, 2009 at 12:36 pm
I totally agree Fedor is better than Brock, but to side with anything that Gary Millen says is ridiculous. I also agree that the UFC screwed up not getting Zaromskis. And no, there is no legit challenging fight for Fedor outside the UFC besides Overeem. By the way, UFC cards are much more entertaining than any other card put on by another org. 95 percent of the people on here know for a fact that the majority of the best fighters in the world are in the UFC. Your argument isnt strong at all besides your point of Dana being a greedy fag sometimes.

was hilarious!

@831 Son & One Two:

I thought this was a place for mma fans, not mma organization fans.

Fedor's handlers are NOT Russians. They're Jews. M-1 Global is based in Holland and is headed by Vadim Finkelstein. He was the guy seated next to Fedor at the press conference after the Rogers fight.
mjmcnns- November 11, 2009 at 11:52 am
I propose CP only refer to that douchebag but his real name, Gary, and not the self-annointed monikor he adopted in a desperate attempt to make himself sound cooler.

One Two- November 11, 2009 at 11:29 am
damn right fedor, mousassi, jacare and zaromskis, they have the up and coming talent the HW division on lock and are willing to work with other orgs UFC has nog wandy and a few other guys I like and they have BJ anderson and GSP but no one for them to fight. BJ penn is fighting another fucking TUF bum for christs sake. I'll still watch UFC but they put on weak cards these days and half the talent in MMA isn't in the UFC so they can stop acting like there the be all end all of MMA.

and cokers not a slimy scumbag like dana. with out dana and the UFC greedy slimball ways i'd actually be a huge UFC fan they have a lot of talent but i can't stand dana and the way they run shit.

my original point was fedor is the #1 fighter in the world not brock if people want to see the fight its on lesnar to leave, not fedor to join. theres plenty of LEGITIMATE fights outside of the UFC for fedor right now.
831 Son- November 11, 2009 at 11:29 am
One Two you must be a retard. You hop on the Strikeforce train JUST because Fedor is signed. Dumb. Dont watch the UFC then, stick to the 2 events Strikeforce will put on every year, douchebag. I agree, absolute dumbest statement of the year.

831 son will go, he never was to fucking smart to begin with.

Wow idiot, so you are supposed to be smart? You dont even know the difference between to/too you fucking retard. You claimed you are a 50 year old miserable bitch a couple weeks ago anyway, so I'm not even going to argue with you, seeing how your worthless ass still hasn't found out how to spell. And it's not just this post, every single post you write you fuck up the english language. Loser.

As for Gary Millen, it is obvious he is extremely jealous of the UFC and just butthurt that he and the red devil russian faggots couldnt get their ridiculous deal signed.
Jarekov The Great- November 11, 2009 at 10:24 am
one two wins dumbest statement of the year.

Dmonicideals- November 11, 2009 at 9:25 am
I just want to fight Jerry Millen. Where is his backyard? Because i'm gonna shove my foot up it.
Gargoroth- November 11, 2009 at 9:18 am
Screw Fedor and his puppet masters M-1 global (Russian mob). Until he becomes his own man and dumps all these coat tail riders he is a scrub. He would get face raped by Lesnar, Valesquez, Mir, Carwin. Those Russians make a TON of money of his unbeaten image, f_cking sad.
mthomas- November 11, 2009 at 9:03 am
I say no way to a GARY Millen ban. The Bens have too much fun and I get too much pleasure out of them ripping him on a regular basis!
Your Dumb- November 11, 2009 at 8:51 am
Now if only we could get Demain Demento to do an interview with Jer-Bear
shitbag- November 11, 2009 at 8:51 am
Ben and Ben, thank you for the last line of this article. It made my day.

Jerry Millen will henceforth be referred to as "Jer-Bear". For now and forever.

"Sounds good, Jer-Bear. And maybe after that, you can go fuck yourself for no money".

dude that is really good shit, thank you
One Two- November 11, 2009 at 7:46 am
Millens a douche but yeah if these UFC douches really wanna prove there the best quit hiding out in the UFC and fight fedor, just don't make the same mistake coture did and make sure they can't lock you up in court for years. (people wonder why Fedor didn't wanna sign after listening to dana badmouth him for years and watching them take there most loyal and recognizable fighter coture and fuck him right in the ass)

The pressure should be on UFC fighters to leave not fedor to join UFC ain't shit.
Swedish- November 11, 2009 at 7:12 am
CP... why don't you use his real name?

Its GARY 'dbag' Millen

ohh and his comments are totally moronic, please don't print them again

Fedor's nose actually was fractured but it's been miraculously healed. See what's possible when you travel with a coterie of priests who look like Rasputin?
