Thiago Silva Withdraws From Ovince St. Preux Fight, Begging Us to Ask: Is the UFC Just Making Shit Up Nowadays?


(Well, it’s not like he didn’t try to tell us that he wouldn’t be available.)

You guys remember yesterday, right? As in the day before today? Also known as the day the Thiago Silva vs. Ovince St. Preux fight was announced by the UFC? Well GUESS AGAIN, MOTHERFUCKERS:

As of this write up, no specific reason (training injury, upcoming Ziggy Marley concert) has been given for Silva’s withdrawal from the fight. However, recent history seems to indicate that either:
a.) The UFC booked the fight and Silva immediately injured himself, which he is wont to do.
b.) The UFC assumed Silva was healthy and booked the fight without even consulting him first.

Dana White Lends Some Credence to Chael Sonnen’s Lil Nog Jokes at the Expense of His Own Intelligence


(We would have also accepted “Luke Cummo.” Via The American Gangster’s twitter.) 

As you all know, Alexander Gustafsson was recently scheduled to take on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (as we suggested) in a match that was in no way a gimme fight to set up Jones/Gustafsson II. Less than a week later, Lil’ Nog pulled out from the fight with a back injury — the fifth such time he has been forced to do so in his UFC career.

While most of us (ie. Chael Sonnen) were content to use Nogueira’s run of bad luck as the basis for several personal attacks on Twitter, Dana White recently revealed that the blame for what was quite possibly the shortest-lived fight in UFC history lies solely on his own shoulders, as Lil Nog never actually agreed to the fight in the first place. He tells MMAJunkie:

What happened was that night we decided to make the fight. Gustafsson said yes, and they couldn’t get hold of him, so I said, ‘F–k it,’ and just went with it and announced the fight, and of course, he’s hurt.

The fight isn’t for four months, and he’s already determined he’s hurt. I don’t understand that. The guy is always hurt. Every time you call him, he’s hurt.

While I typically draw the line when it comes to taking pot shots at a Nogueira, I do find it interesting that the younger, not-run-over-by-a-truck-as-a-child Nogueira has been battling more injury issues than the older, run-over-by-a-truck-as-a-child, arm-shattered-by-Frank-Mir Nogueira as of late. I’m not saying Sonnen’s onto something, but he kind of is, you guys.

Taking pot shots at Dana White, on the other hand….

Aldo Out of UFC 125 Bout With Josh Grispi With Undisclosed Injury


("Easiest title win EVA!!")

According to a report from Heavy.com, newly crowned UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has  been forced out of his planned first title defense against Josh Grispi at UFC 125 in January.

Aldo was presented with the belt during last weekend’s UFC 123 event in Auburn Hills, Michigan and if he really wanted to make an interesting mark in the MMA record books, he would go through with our suggestion that he retire as the only UFC champion with an 0-0 record in the Octagon.

There’s no word on the nature of the injury, but there’s bound to be a plethora of rumors about how Aldo got hurt. We actually have it on good authority that it was groin pull he sustained during his first Smashers Club get together on Saturday night.

We’ll have more details as they emerge.
