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

UFC to Counter-Program “Carano vs. Cyborg” With UFC 100 Replay

(In the edited-for cable version, Lesnar says "I’m gonna drink a [Bud] Light because Bud Light [is the best], and I might even [do something special for] my wife tonight.")

The first stage in Dana White’s plan to destroy Strikeforce and piss on their ashes comes this Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/PT, as Spike will air highlights from UFC 100. The replay card will look like this:

Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir
Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping
Alan Belcher vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama
Stephan Bonnar vs. Mark Coleman
Shannon Gugerty vs. Matt Grice
Jon Jones vs. Jake O’Brien

Notably, Georges St. Pierre‘s five-round rout of Thiago Alves won’t be part of the show. But then again, we all saw that one already. What you probably haven’t seen are the selected undercard fights: Coleman‘s surprising decision win over Bonnar, Jones‘s submission of O’Brien, and Gugurty‘s submission of Grice. We’ll DVR it to watch later, and if you have the means, we suggest you do the same.

The question is, how much does this really affect the viewership for Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg, which will be happening around the same time? Without any data on the efficiency of MMA counter-programming, I’m gonna go ahead and say: Not much. The people who were planning to watch Carano vs. Cyborg will still watch it. For the most part, the UFC will only be picking off MMA fans who don’t have Showtime or aren’t that interested in the Strikeforce show, and the few poor saps who missed out on UFC 100 altogether.

It’s certainly true that the re-broadcast helps to further promote the UFC brand on basic cable, which is helpful. But perhaps Dana White is content to be that fly that won’t stop buzzing around Scott Coker’s sweaty face at an otherwise enjoyable Sunday picnic. Sure, it’s petty, but after a hundred different petty annoyances, eventually you start thinking about leaving that picnic, so to speak. And of course, the big guns will come out later…

Glenwo2 sucks SWORD.
get over it.
godsloneranger- August 13, 2009 at 10:23 am

Thanks for the revelation. It's is a funny looking sword. Its not even sharp at the top. Please it's all in good fun. Don't let it raise you blood pressure. I still and always will think it's funny so you can't speak for all the mma fans by saying it's not funny. If you don't think its funny that's you business. Not a reason to cuss out God Almighty!

I am sorry it's a pee-pee made to look like a sword. Have a nice day!

On an original side note Brock Lesnar has a gay tattoo on his chest...oh and the personality/haircut of a retard."

>>> Why don't you try saying that his face and see where that smartass-mouth of yours get you?

(I'll notify your next of kin...)

"godslonerranger says :
great shot of Brock's penis tattoo. Covered up the tip but the majority of the pee-pee is showing"


Enough of this shit. The "Cock Sword" joke was funny 3 Months ago. Time to get new material.

godsloneranger- August 13, 2009 at 5:13 am

yes Bovice this is the ufc you just bought. I knew you could'nt resist seeing brock's penis tattoo bouncing around in HD.

@ufc fan

could not have said it better myself. Thanks dude.

Hey guys, sword/penis tatoos on a half naked mans chest aside (even the commenting about that in any form is freaking gay), can you help me out on this: How is counter programming on such a short notice even possible? I mean Dana or the UFC don't own Spike, right? Spike is a TV channel. They don't usually puzzle their saturday evening programm together three days before it airs.
Bovice- August 13, 2009 at 2:28 am
Didn't I just pay for this fucking UFC?
Jeffro- August 12, 2009 at 9:34 pm
If you crybabies didn't complain so much, you might have some friends (maybe even girls) that would come over and chip in for the $50 PPV so that is doesn't cost you so much. I'd bet you would have better jobs too. Then you would make more money and $50 wouldn't be such a painful hit to the wallet.

Watching the fights live is worth the price.
UFC fan- August 12, 2009 at 8:49 pm
guys dont sweat it, 831 son will always be the biggest douchebag fucktard homo from "cali" to ever keyboard-love a man with a cock on his chest. have no fear, him and his queerbait faggo friends will be back tomorrow with even more stupid shit to say.

I don't mind that UFC is showing the UFC 100 PPV, I am still going to watch Gina beat cyborg like 831 son beats his meat to cock chestner, bank on it.

Damn Dana first you send Diaz a pound of Purple Haze so he forgets about his drug test/title fight then this...besides maybe pissing off a few people who just paid for this what last month...but hey least they threw in some good undercard fights too.

@ gargoroth

shitbag already got you first, but ill extend the love.

i just googled 'gargoroth' cause i was curious as to what it might be a reference to. G'o'rgoroth is a norwegian black metal band, which would have saved you, but the misspelling sent the idea of that packing.

i then look down and see that a frequent contributor to the 'world of warcraft' messageboards also goes by the same name, 'gargoroth'.

you lose.

@831 son and swedish

Brocks penis tattoo will never get old. Swedish, my father does not make me touch him down there but you mother forces me to touch her down there. Swedish I may be 13 but Brock was 30 something when he paid someone to tattoo a penis on his chest. Who's the immature one?You are old and mature and I am 13 but we are both on the same website commenting on the same article, What does that make you? Whenever redneck's have too much time on there hand the results are never good.

831 we are "fags" were not the one with the replica pee-pee on out chest that paid for it out of there own pocket. Not original? Calling someone a "fag" is very inventive, right, and funny and original?

@ SnowpantsDynomite

CP used that photo before and nailed the caption when they compared Brock to a Howler Monkey.

It would have been priceless if Brock had went all lower primate on their asses and flung some shit at Mir and then bit Rogan's nose off.
portland mma- August 12, 2009 at 2:18 pm
Why are people bitching because they bought this fight a month ago? it was a fucking month ago, if you didnt watch it you'd already know what happens. Isn't that why people get live events to know what the fuck happens? Not watch it a month later?

On an original side note Brock Lesnar has a gay tattoo on his chest...oh and the personality/haircut of a retard.
831 Son- August 12, 2009 at 1:52 pm
@ Swedish- totally agree. Plus, anyone that keeps fucking whining and talking about Brock's sword on his chest are fags. Not funny, not original.
Seoul Brother- August 12, 2009 at 1:39 pm
Nah, MegaMegaRoboCop - I'd like to see him say "Zima."
Swedish- August 12, 2009 at 1:26 pm
@godsloneranger - What is your obsession with Brock's tattoo's?

Your jokes are getting old and just solidifies the fact that you are 13 years old. Does your father make you touch him "down there"?
ecimmortal- August 12, 2009 at 1:23 pm
Complaining about an event being broadcast for free a month after it actually happened is for fucking retards. You paid for the privelage of seeing it LIVE. You also knew that at some point they would be showing it for free on Spike! No one forced you to buy it.
Do you complain when a movie you paid to see in the theatre is on TV? I bet you don't. You would only complain about it if it was Dana White showing it.
Just A Wrestler- August 12, 2009 at 1:20 pm
@snowpants.. are you suugesting that not only is he built like a black man but looks like one too?
Jubbie- August 12, 2009 at 1:12 pm
It looks like he's pointing where he wants it finished too. Say Ahhh.
SnowpantsDynomite- August 12, 2009 at 12:59 pm
Does anyone else think that Brock looks like a screaming ape in that pic?
mmmiles9000- August 12, 2009 at 12:58 pm
I would bet that a lot of people who were on the fence about putting money down for Strikeforce will watch this instead. I was 50/50 on paying for strikeforce (primarily for Carana/Cyborg), but if this is on I can just torrent strikeforce later.

More importantly, almost noone else wants to watch Strikeforce with me anyway. So I'll be out on the town that night instead.
godsloneranger- August 12, 2009 at 12:47 pm

On man I feel on the floor laughing at your comment!! Thanks I needed a good laugh. It does appear he is masturbating in penis tattoo into his mouth. He did is as a sign to budweiser that he would drink anything other than bud.
