UFC News: K-Sos Gets Lucky, J-Mac Doesn’t


(Photo courtesy of Spike.com.)

With Houston Alexander out of UFC 98 due to a hand injury, it has been announced that "The Polish Experiment" will be stepping in to replace him against Andre Gusmao. Krzysztof Soszynski is 2-0 in the UFC since his stint on TUF 8, with both of his wins by kimura submission; he most recently took out Brian Stann at UFC 97 last month, meaning he’s only getting a five-week turnaround between fights. Gusmao, on the other hand, hasn’t fought since he dropped a unanimous decision to Jon Jones in his UFC debut last August. Will the longer break be a benefit for Gusmao, or will the Brazilian get armlocked out of his UFC contract?

In other Octagon news…


Veteran UFC middleweight Jason MacDonald has been released from his contract, according to his own column for sportsnet.ca. MacDonald’s first-round loss to Nate Quarry at UFC 97 was his third defeat in his last four atempts, and dropped his overall UFC record to 5-5. Wrote MacDonald: "I’m obviously very disappointed. But I’m not at all angry with the UFC. I’m well aware of the fact that I’m paid to perform…the most disappointing thing is not only that I was let go, but how poorly I performed that night, in Canada, in front of all my Canadian fans." MacDonald named the MFC and Strikeforce as organizations he’d like to fight for next.

MMA Junkie has also confirmed that David Loiseau has been cut by the UFC (again) after losing his return fight to Ed Herman at UFC 97, while Bloody Elbow also names Ryo Chonan and David Bielkheden as members of the newly-unemployed. If those reports are true, it would mean that five of the 12 fighters who lost their matches at UFC 97 were fired afterwards (i.e., the guys mentioned above and Vinny Magalhaes). The number of fighters who are being forced into retirement after losing at UFC 97 is holding steady at one.

Sad to see MacDonald go. He was one of my favorite fighters and consistently put on a great performance in every fight, win or lose. He'll be back in the near future.

You are a fucking homo CAPS LOCK. Shut the fuck up. You dont know shit about mma. You are scum of the earth. You will get beat up and once again, you ruin this wonderful site.

Like others have said I think JMac will be back, but for what? A good fighter and guy but can he roll with and beat the top 2-4 in the division?

Why the fuck did UFC bring The Crow back anyway? Thought his UFC time was done after using his head to break Franklins hand, what a waste of time that one was!

Good luck to K-Sos, and thank fuck was can call him K-Sos and not have to worry about spelling his real name. Would like to see him do well in the big show.

SCM...I'd love to see you land a big overhand, right followed by a knee to the jaw and a quick elbow to the temple on the way down!!!

So here's the thing... Sure it was 2004 and sure Anderson Silva had about an 8 month layoff before he face Ryo Chonan at Pride Shockwave. The other thing is that Ryo was actually taking it to Silva in the fight and ultimately won by flying leg lock. The leg lock wasn't thrown in desperation, rather Chonan felt comfortable enough to go for it.

I guess he hasn't shown he is dangerous enough and his recent L's weren't to top contenders. I hoped for more from him in the UFC but it wasn't there.

I loved K-Sos in "Forty Days of Night". So scary!

Okay, so, rumor has it The Athlete started losing his vision when he takes a headshot.

Nice tip on the Franklin fight, Jersey guy. I'm gonna watch that one again tonight!

Grimmy's hilare!

Loiseau and Chonan?
Fucking suck.

Note:

The also fired the guy who sold the nachos at the food stand. We cannot give you details due to the impending court case, but it makes Rampage Jacksons tirade look like Naomi Campbell throwing her cell phone at the maid.

(un)Related side note. Livestock will no longer be allowed in the arena parking lot without an escort. this is to protect (allegedly) both the fans and the livestock.

Just remember kids, BAAAAA means NO!

TEACH YOUR ASS A LESSON YOU WON'T SOON FORGET. YOUR PUSSSY ASS WOULDN'T LAST TWO MINUETS IN THE CAGE I HAVE IN MY BEDROOM IN THE BASEMENT OF MY DADS HOUSE...
nEw JeRsEy - NeW jErSeY- May 5, 2009 at 8:32 am
McDonald has been performing, or losing, poorly...but he's a tough guy and a great fighter. UFC should have given him a can or two to beat up and return to form before cutting him.

The Crow...I don't know what's up with that guy! Man, what happened???
SCM- May 5, 2009 at 8:16 am
Itll be funny if K-Sos gets another win by way of kimura. He seems pretty good at those. Sucks for J-Mac but hell beat some people up in strikeforce most likely.

Everyone, set this fight up between me and Caps Lock. Itll be awesome to see that pansy lil bitch go down.
SiDeBuRnZ- May 5, 2009 at 8:04 am
good job on the tsrif!
mayhem420- May 5, 2009 at 8:04 am
J-Mac will go to a smaller org. get some wins and could be back after a while.
He's a good fighter just needs to get some win's under his belt and his confidence back.
Marcer- May 5, 2009 at 7:46 am
Pfft, they should have fired Ed Herman instead.
The Can- May 5, 2009 at 7:44 am
Too bad for J-Mac though, guy has alot of heart.
The Can- May 5, 2009 at 7:40 am
tsrif!
