Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

UFC Fight Night 18 Weigh-Ins Had a Little Trouble

(Look who’s here to fix the cable…)

UFC Fight Night 18 in Nashville, Tenn. is not off to a great start.  They held the weigh-ins today, and both Jeremy Stephens and Gleison Tibau missed weight, with Stephens coming in a full two pounds over the allotted 156-pound limit.  Tibau was only off by a half a pound, but instead of letting him try to cut it they opted to change it to a catchweight bout at 158 pounds.  Because hey, screw it, right?

Ryan Jensen and Steve Steinbeiss didn’t weigh in as part of the regular proceedings at all. reports that they both later clocked in at 186, but the fight is “on hold at the moment, pending resolution of an administrative issue.”  Man, don’t tell me one of those guys has been going to Aleks Emelianenko’s favorite tattoo parlor.  Yes, they do great work there, but for the last time it isn’t worth it!

The rest of the weigh-in results look like this:

Martin Kampmann (170) vs. Carlos Condit (170.5)
Carmelo Marrero (205) vs. Ryan Bader (206)
Junie Browning (156) vs. Cole Miller (156)
Rafael Dos Anjos (156) vs. Tyson Griffin (156)
Matt Horwich (185) vs. Ricardo Almeida (185.5
Jeremy Stephens (158) vs. Gleison Tibau (156.5)
Jesse Sanders (171) vs. Brock Larson (171)
Nissen Osterneck (186) vs. Jorge Rivera (185)
Nick Catone (186) vs. Tim Credeur (186)
Joe Vedepo (185) vs. Rob Kimmons (185)
Aaron Simpson (186) vs. Tim McKenzie (184.5)

Where the fuck you at "vinsullo"?

You just got your ass eaten

@HighLeftKick - Yeah I still disagree, but I take your point - getting away from Junie's crotch-kini would be a good reason.

to Craig:

why waste time with cutting a pound when they got Junie Browning running around looking like THE fagtart of the year?

Jesus mother of Moses, it seems they are pulling out all the stops to get attention to this shitty card and get some ratings.

sorry there Luketheduke, I guess im just old fashioned that way.

and Dizzlefizz, this card has about the same interest as my neighbore's grandmother's debut in Backyard Grannies 9 . . . I just don't give a shit. And that makes me "not a fan?" Not a fan of wat exactly, the UFC? haha sue me, im gonna go to my room and cry about some dick gobbler saying IM not a fan! haha nigga you's a flea.

and to Vinsullo, I feel where ur comin from. will make those fees go away if you dont care about a lil time delay haha.

Craig- April 1, 2009 at 7:04 am
For the love of God why not just let him cut a half pound?
Dizzlefizz- April 1, 2009 at 5:00 am

You're right!

Lets remove all the "stepping stone" fights. That will really help out the sport in the long run?
The UFC know the wouldn't pull any real cash from this event, but that doesn't mean it's not important. You have two guys headlining: 1 is a champion from an org. that's gone belly up (but still with 3 succesfull title defences). The other has 1 loss in the UFC against Nate Marquart (who we all know is shit, right ? hmmpf) and who's the only guy to have beat Thales Leites.

Vinsullo. If this card doesn't interest you in the slightest then you are NOT a fan. You are just one of those morons who buy every single wrestling event and stroke you wookie every time you see a steroid buff in his spandex speedoes.
LukeTheDuke- April 1, 2009 at 4:39 am
These fighters are kind of the people who have to pick up the slack when all the fighters that "High Left Kick" actually does give a shit about retire. What a true fan he is.
vinsullo- March 31, 2009 at 9:21 pm
Well once again we have stupid assholes making it impossible for any of us fans to save $1 because like the moron said, he'd pay for it. Stupid dickhead. It's your fault that we get charged $45 now. It will also be your moronic fault when it goes to.......wait for it......$49.99. Shithead! "I'd even spend my bucks on it". ugh huh ugh ugghhh that was that idiot laughing as Marty moose. You'd even pay for it huh? You love the fact that we drop $45 on each event and don't even get to see all the fights? And you also have to pay MORE money on UFC.cunt to see those unaired fights from the event you bought? STFU!
vinsullo- March 31, 2009 at 9:13 pm
Wow. This card is absolute dogshit. Free or not WTF. Why bother? I'm sure they would pull more revenue and fans in if they would actually put on some superfights instead of filler fights. All the time now with these filler stepping stone fights. Bullshit. By the time we get to see the good fights happen, the fighters are not in their prime. This card is shit. I'll say it again. Shit. Cole Magrino Miiiiillllleeeeerrrr! Oh yeah as a fan from day one I can't wait. I can't wait to see this card and we are sooooooooo luck it's free. Especially being that my friends and I have spent thousands of fucking dollars buying these events. Yeah we are lucky getting this ammature fight card. Thanks UFCunts. Oh, and Junie Browning was trying to slap his balls moron!
Dizzlefizz- March 31, 2009 at 6:05 pm
Kampmann is one of my favorite fighters. Sick of people only wanting the same 16 guys to go at it again and again... and again. Think this is a decent card. Hell... would even spend my hard earned buckaroos to see it.

Anyone who has been paying attention to fight nights care. Everyone has had better matches than the ppvs. umad.
