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

UFC Quick Notes: Florian, Lesnar, Horwich, MacDonald

(Props to MMA Mania for the poster image.)

Kenny Florian doesn’t plan on sitting out until BJ Penn decides to defend his lightweight belt; he’ll be fighting one more time this year, no matter what. “(Penn) made the decision that he wants to fight GSP and I tell you what as a fan I want to see that fight,” Florian said during an appearance on MMA Weekly Radio. “It’s a risky move and some people have criticized me for it, but I still want to get another fight in…before the year’s end and I want to fight someone tough.”

— All signs are pointing to Cheick Kongo as Brock Lesnar‘s next opponent. And why not UFC Hall-of-Famer Mark Coleman, who was originally supposed to take on Lesnar at “Seek and Destroy”? According to Dave Meltzer: “The basic story is this…Coleman really doesn’t want the fight.”

— UFC 90 (October 25th, Chicago) will see the Octagon debut of Matt Horwich, the Team Quest product and one-time IFL middleweight champion. He’ll be given a very tough test against BJJ ace Ricardo Almeida, who’s coming off a split decision loss to Patrick Cote at UFC 86. The UFC has also announced a UFC 90 middleweight matchup between Thales Leites.

— Even Jason MacDonald doesn’t know why he decided to fight Demian Maia on the ground: “It was a stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid fight on my behalf. And I take the full blame 100 percent for it. I’ll take it right on the forehead like I took those hundred elbows from Maia.”

Anderson v cote hmm another one bites the dust. Cote is a good fighter but is not in the big league's enough said anyone? Also Kenflo should be fighting Bj penn but looks like that is not going to happen. Although Kenflo was not impressive against huerta but to his defense huerta had his shit together. Jason Mcdonald v demain maia was a great fight. As for Cheick Kongo not sure sometimes he is on sometimes he is off, from the looks of lesnar he needs to be on. Herring schooled him and that aint sayin much. Lesnar in the 1st round ground and pound.

Damn it Dana, go count your money again or something.

As for the kenflo vs huerta fight, kenflo was simply better and had more variety.

To many Huerta fans sucking of the "matador-dick".
Look nuthuggers, if Huerta is so great why didn't he find an answer for Kennys foot in his face, or all the take-downs, face it dumbasses Huerta got outclasses, out smarted, and out done in MMA. Kenny is more technical, and Huerta is little whiny bitch who worry's more about his contract, and thinking hes hot shit then working everyday to get better like Florian obviously is.
Huerta went for the superman punch..what 8 or 15 times? Yeah what huge amount of different moves, you sure showed us fans NO SKILLZ!
Kenny jabbed him, counter punched him, out kicked him, outmaneuvered him in everything.
I'm sure that is why Huerta turned and spit at the audience, cause hes so classy?uh no! cause he cares what his nuthugging fans think? uh no. cause hes a dumbass and you shouldn't turn your back from a fight? YES ding ding ding, we have a winner!
Huerta you can now officially go back to curtain-jerker.

FUCK YEAH, that is why Huerta had all the takedowns in that fight.................... oh wait that was Huerta being taken down.

Huerta is a hard charger and the best strategy for beating a hard charger is counter punching. Florian knew he didn't have the punching power to beat Huerta in a slug fest, he openly admitted that in the post fight press conference, so what good does it do him to go in with a strategy that he knows he can't win? He won, he didn't run away like Starnes, he simply fought a better fight than Huerta so stop bitching.

That poster might as well include Cote’s obituary.


Dude give him a break that is the first win he's had where he didn't end it. Its irrelevant anyone though, when BJ does decide to fight him he will be licking his blood before the end of the first round.

After the way Florian fought Huerta Ive lost respect for him. I mean what do you get into UFC and MMA for if your gonna be elusive and "technical"? Get in there and fight bitch! GSP is a REAL example of technical and precision fighting, Florian was just boring. I felt like I was watching a Mayweather fight. You could see the frustration in Rogers eyes. Florian does NOT deserve a title shot right now. If he gets it and fights like that again I will be pissed.


PFFFT! Give me a break!

If Crispin Glover were an MMA fighter, he'd be Matt Horwich. Horwich may not have the best win/loss record (23-10-1, according to Sherdog), but he gives the most entertaining interviews in the sport. I sure hope he doesn't fight Almeida on the undercard; I'd love to see him on the Countdown show for UFC 90.

RE: the poster. Is it just me, ir does it look like Cote is cowering back as Silva leans forward? Body language says it all.

^^^ Exactly what I was thinking.

Can't wait to see the betting odds for this one.

Man, just look at that poster and tell me who's going to win this fight. Cote doesn't stand a chance.
