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

Urijah Faber Out of WEC 50 With Knee Injury

(Damn, as if the constipation wasn’t bad enough…)

Urijah Faber‘s scheduled bantamweight debut against Takeya Mizugaki at WEC 50 (August 18th, Las Vegas) has been canceled, due to a knee injury that Faber suffered in training on Monday. The California Kid confirmed the bad news via Twitter earlier today, and told Heavy: "Somebody was going to take me down during training. They swept me and I heard a loud pop. They said it would be six weeks before I could train again, but it may heal even faster."

According to MMAJunkie, a replacement will not be found for Mizugaki. Tough break, but on the bright side, it’s a miracle that Faber can even walk at all at this point. WEC 50 will be headlined by the bantamweight title (re-)match between Dominick Cruz and Joseph Benavidez.

More likely they still look like rotten bananas from the Aldo beating

Faber is starting to remind me of Mr. Glass, which in turn, reminds me that M. Night Shamwhoa is actually capable of making a decent movie. So fuck you Faber. I was perfectly happy hating on M. Night and his shitty movies.

More importantly there's no opponent for Mizugaki, put that in your headlines dammit. More biased yanky doodle reports from the Uninformative Bastards.

Pop pop goes the weasel cuz the weasel goes pop pop!!

Fighters who manage to stay healthy truly are blessed. Keep hearing about guys tearing this, breaking that and it just amazes me how certain people seem to be immune from serious injury. Don't wanna drop names, have 'em get hurt and forever be know as Jinx, so I won't..

I'm surprised dude even had something to tear in his knees after his last fight.
