Steroids in MMA

As first reported on Portal do Vale Tudo and confirmed by MMAJunkie, the UFC’s third “UFC on FOX Sports 1” event will take place on September 4th in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and will feature two of Brazil’s most dangerous contenders.

First up, light-heavyweights Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader have been re-scheduled to fight at the event, after originally being booked for UFC 160. When Bader withdrew from the fight due to injury, Teixeira faced James Te-Huna instead, and walked away with his fourth straight UFC victory and a Submission of the Night bonus for choking out Te-Huna in the first round. Teixeira currently holds one of the most impressive win streaks in all of MMA, with 19 victories in a row (17 by stoppage), dating back to May 2006.

As for Bader, the former TUF champ hasn’t competed since his quick guillotine-choke win over Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC on FOX 6 back in January. You can expect “Darth” to be a sizable underdog (once again) in this fight. Anybody think he can deflate Glover’s hype?

In other UFC on FOX Sports 1:3 booking news…

Fresh off his own Submission of the Night victory over Chris Camozzi in his Octagon debutat UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold last month, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza will head back to Brazil to meet veteran contender Yushin Okami, whose three-fight win streak includes wins over Buddy Roberts, Alan Belcher, and Hector Lombard. Considering how sharp Jacare has looked in his recent fights, Souza vs. Okami could be a “changing of the guard” moment in the middleweight division.

The UFC’s 9/4 card represents the promotion’s first trip to Belo Horizonte since UFC 147: Silva vs. Franklin II, and it already has a more interesting lineup. Stay tuned for more…

I think because the LHW is a little backed up with Gustaf/ Jones and Machida waiting in the wings. Might as well have Texiera run through every one else to keep him busy. If he beats Bader then maybe they have him fight Rashad to see who gets in line after Teh Dargon.

Booking Jacare and Okami against each other is good for the UFC, because it spares Bisping from getting dominated by either of them.

Also, I really don't understand the way they have booked Glover. Why not put him in with an ex-contender? It's inconceivable that they'll actually give him a fight with Jones if he beats Bader, even he might be the one guy in the division capable of giving Jones any sort of challenge at this point.
