Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Twitter Beef of the Day: @jonfitchdotnet Gets Sat the F*ck Down by @bjpenndotcom

(Is there any greater rivalry in world history than .com people vs. .net people?)

Man, I feel bad for Jon Fitch. Fans shit on him for not finishing, the UFC has stopped giving him marquee fights — a public shaming from BJ Penn is really the last thing he needs right now.

Fitch was cleared to resume training last month following his shoulder surgery, which didn’t leave him with enough time to replace Diego Sanchez against Matt Hughes at UFC 135 later this month. However, he claims that he’ll be healthy enough to come in as BJ Penn’s replacement opponent at UFC 137 in October, or as Nick Diaz‘s new opponent, whenever Diaz gets out of the doghouse.

However, it doesn’t sound like Dana White is interested in either matchup, so he’s been telling people that Fitch simply won’t be ready to fight in time, which makes things easier on everybody, even if it might not be entirely true. As a result, Penn went on twitter to defecate all over Jon’s best efforts to get a big fight. Ouch, bro.

By the way, Penn followed up this tweet by writing “Dana just offered me a deal I can’t refuse. pretty sure I’m still fighting on Oct. 29th.” Shane Carwin thinks it’s Matt Hughes. Another unfounded rumor names Nate Marquardt as the likely suspect, which would be awesome since they really don’t like each other. This booking-and-replacement merry-go-round is starting to get a little confusing, but we’ll keep you posted when we know more…

I like Fitch and watch all of his fights.

That being said, I have no problem with the UFC keeping him as far as fucking possible away from that belt. if it were up to me, I'd put him on the undercard. He doesn't sell any ppv's, he has earned the nickname "smoke break" in the mma community....

He's a talented top fighter who will never beat GSP and is entirely unmarketable. He should only fight guys that have already lost to GSP so he doesn't cockblock all the potential contenders.

Who do you ever see blowing up Chad Mendes, least of all in this thread? Also, if Chad Mendes had a decisive loss to the reigning champ, you can bet people wouldn't give a shit about him either, or should I say less of a shit than they currently do.

I don't understand how people HATE Jon Fitch, but love Chad Mendes? Where the hell is all this Fitch Hate come from?

If you can't stop a takedown, eat a dick. I'm sick of people dissing on Fitch for BEATING opponents!?

Penn is a clown; A spoiled little baby who has pre-loaded excuses before every fight. The UFC hangs on them nuts way too much.

Dana just tweeted Penn/Diaz for the 29th!

BTW who the fuck wrote this article: "Another unfounded rumor names Nate Marquardt as the likely candidate"

Marquart rumor should havent even been in the article since he was fucking fired and dont work for the UFC any more. remember the philly incident where he wasnt cleared cuased of supposed TRT therapy?

Crybaby J took a dump in his baby Penn and is now angry as ever.

@skeletor That was pretty clever, unfortunately you forgot to add your period as well.
danomite- September 8, 2011 at 3:31 pm
it's gotta be BJ vs. Thiago Alves or someone from 185lbs. I doubt it's Nick Diaz since dana said he hasn't talked to him since taking his title shot. Maybe Sexiyama?
RearNakedSpoon- September 8, 2011 at 3:25 pm
BJ vs HJ ;) :D
Did you see what I did there? :D

Thanks Skeletor, that one made my day.

@Skeletor : He can't even finish his sentences. Eh I don't mean that but couldn't resist.
pietaster- September 8, 2011 at 2:45 pm
I agree with flying gogoplata. +He needs to add some aggressive offense to his game or hes gonna get hated out of the UFC.

@skeletor: I LoLed so hard that I woke my daughter up. nice going.
Pen Fifteen- September 8, 2011 at 2:20 pm
Similarly, I get tired of all the Fitch apologists conveniently forgetting that he lost two rounds against a natural 155er in his last match. All the victories by wrestlefuck in the world aren't going to convince me that he has a snowball's chance in hell of winning a rematch with GSP.
flying gogoplata- September 8, 2011 at 2:20 pm
WiccyG, and by "beating the shit out of them on the ground" you mean hugging them till the time runs out

I get tired of the Fitch haters. If you can't stop a dude from man handling you, then GTFO. Fitch is a tough bastard any way you look at it. We should be asking his opponents what they are doing wrong to stop him from beating the shit out of them on the ground, not why Fitch is doing it in the first place.
skeletor- September 8, 2011 at 1:53 pm
Fitch can't even finish a tweet properly. He failed to put a period at the end of the last sentence
