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

Tim Sylvia Had a Rough Childhood

Affliction just posted this “Countdown” video to their skull-heavy YouTube page, introducing the main event fighters in their July 19th debut card. Special attention is given to Tim Sylvia‘s troubled upbringing, and his alcoholic, abusive mother. Not sure if they’re trying to turn the Maine-iac into a sympathetic figure or something, but it’s probably too little too late. (If both his parents were abusive alcoholics, then maybe…) You should also check out the “stadium preview” below if you’re curious about where Megadeth will be set up in relation to the ring.

I don't see where Tim's beef is.

Just about every mother in Maine is an alcoholic.

Ya, a marshmallow who will turn your face into a pancake and rip every joint in your arms and legs to shreds given the chance

Nice job by Affliction pronouncing "Rizzo" incorrectly.

Also, Rothwell actually looks like he's making fun of the idiotic "fire & water" setup during his shadow-boxing segment...

"Fedor looked like a lard-ass." He looks just like he has when he dismantled the UFC current HW champ twice. The affliction card is hands down more interesting than the free UFC event that night. This competition between organizations is great for the fans, so why are some fans acting like such UFC ass kissers? The only people who are against the threat of real competition for the UFC are those making money there. Competitive free markets are whats going to get the fans the best fights at the lowest prices. An MMA world dominated by one power like the UFC will be boring and controlled. Go Fedor !

Fedor looked like a lardass. I hope Tim the crap-iac beats his head through the mat.

Anyone else pumped about seeing the best fighter in the world on Sat? I know I am, watch it live on spiketv in HD and FREE

Did they mention that Sylvia's mom made him wear a belt to bed?

With her, I mean.

Looks to me like the syvia training sessions were more of a photoshoot. Considering there were a couple of angles of him seemingly injuring a training partner with a leg kick lol - while the fedor footage is old compiled filmstock from years ago.

did anyone notice how fedor is doing like kinda hard exersizes, and sylvia is like throwing aroud tiny little dumbells and weak punches?
