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

“The California Kid” is Back, Faces Vaughan Lee in #1 Contender Bout at UFC 156 [BA DUM TSSH]

(“It looks like this artist…*puts on sunglasses*… finally got his SHOT at fame. YEAAAAHHHH!!!) 

There is perhaps no fighter in MMA history who has looked more deadly in victory and more broken in defeat than former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber. After dropping his umpteenth title bid (albeit one of those pesky interim ones) to Renan Barao at UFC 149, many MMA pundits were calling for “The California Kid’s” retirement, because in their eyes, being able to beat 98% of your division just isn’t good enough to warrant your existence.

Yet for some reason, it appears that Faber still wants to continue making boatloads of cash in this thing called MMA, and will return at UFC 156 to face off against Vaughan Lee.

Who in the blue Hell is Vaughan Lee, you ask? Good question.

Currently 12-8-1, Lee has dropped two of his three octagon appearances, with the sole win coming over Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto by way of first round armbar at UFC 144. Lee is currently on the heels of a first round neck crank submission loss to TUF 14 runner-up T.J. Dillashaw at UFC on FUEL 4. He’s cannon fodder is what we’re saying, and after Faber is through with him, he will place Lee’s head in a fish tank right next to the remains of Jens Pulver and quietly reflect on his triumphs whilst sipping whiskey all by his lonesome.

UFC 156 will also feature welterweight prospect Erick Silva making his return against UFC 0fer Jay Hieron and a bunch of other really exciting fights that I simply refuse to get excited for because we are living in “the pussy era” of MMA and half of these fighters will likely bow out in the coming weeks.

Fabre all but carried the WEC for years. It is a little sad that his reign ended before he could say UFC champ.

@algierhighkick i agree i mean hes either fighting for a belt, or a number one contenders fight for the past 2 years. I think ufc lIke his character, and the way fans react to him, so they kind of trying to push him to become the champion. Lets face it between decisionator, and barão were never gonna see a finsh in there fights. Barão like he can finish but like lower lvl guys, but high lvl guys he can beat the but, i dont think he can finish them
