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

Video: Countdown to UFC 126

(Video courtesy DailyMotion/Spike/UFC)

If you don’t have the time or couldn’t be bothered to watch the show, we got you covered.

Here are the CP Notes of this edition:

- Anderson doesn’t like Vitor and says whoever God wants to win will win Saturday.

- Vitor believes Jesus loves him more and will help him beat Anderson.

- Ed Soares respects Vitor  and seems somewhat nervous about this fight.

- Vitor  respects Anderson, but says he isn’t afraid of him.

- Vitor says he’s not there to dance around (like Anderson), he’s there to fight.

- Rich seems to be training seriously ahead of this fight, both in the gym and the tanning beds.

- Forrest seems to be doing lots of book promo ahead of this fight.

- Forrest might rely on his new BJJ black belt for this fight.

- Both Franklin and Griffin say they are pretty much the same fighter, only Rich says Forrest is much bigger.

- Forrest doesn’t like being asked questions about Anderson.

-  Jones has a lot of hype to live up to and seems to be buying into it himself.

- Jones wasn’t impressed by Bader’s win over Lil’ Nog, even though Nogueira is widely considered a better calibre fighter than any "Bones" has beaten.

- Jones doesn’t think Bader is very good because he "doesn’t knee, spin or jump."

- Jones doesn’t plan on toning down his cockiness flashiness for the fight.

- CB Dollaway is a weird looking dude.

Parts two and three are after the jump.

^ I gotcha man. I was joking about the money on Bader. I actually didn't put either the the Jones/Bader or the Griffin/Franklin fight on my parlay. I just don't trust the outcome of either fight. I think Jones will probably win. I wouldn't put my dignity on the line for Bader.

I shouldn't have said "rants", was just making a friendly wager brother cause I saw you were putting money on him.

I want Bader to give Jones a beating and maybe bring him down a notch and Bader is just the next in line as a future great Sun Devil wrestler to be a great fighter just like Severn and Henderson!!! Give 'em Hell Devils!!!!!

@ skeletor - I'm all for expanding horizons, but one thing I just can't seem to get into is explosive chicks. I just don't find them attractive.

@ Rsparrow - I don't know what you mean about Bader. I actually really like the guy. I'm just not sure he will beat Bones. I hope he does, or at least gives Bones a good fight. I'd actually prefer if Bader wins, but both are really good fighters. Could end up being the top 2 lhw fighters in the world when all is said and done, and each has a chance to prove himself.

So much of me wants to totally agree with you there but the same tiny part of me that watched the fight feeling something was up says he might be right.

Unlike most people I actually like Sonnen. His kayfabe; his self-belief; his sense of humour. I was cheering for him to win inside. I wanted to believe he was kicking Silva's arse and he probably was just doing that.

I didn't want it to be the case and there is no real evidence for it but i had a tiny lingering feeling that Anderson might have been throwing the rounds to make the fight more exciting for fans. (An untouchable character is a boring character - see superman or john cena).

For me, Soares explanation has an unwelcome ring of truth to it.

@RwR - It's ok, I myself also have a strong work ethic and lots of heart but I am always trying to expand my horizons.
RwilsonR- February 2, 2011 at 3:42 pm
Interesting point skeletor. Coming from a strong-work-ethic and lots-of-heart background, I don't really have a lot of experience with explosiveness, or how all that works.

Wow, I love how Ed Soares tries to rewrite Anderon getting his ass kicked for the majority of the Sonnen fight into Silva trying to win by submission for the honor of his black belt.
RSparrow- February 2, 2011 at 2:22 pm
WAR Johnny Bones baby!!!

If someone wants to take me on a bet with Bones/Bader, the loser has to put (But what do I know, I'm a ____) at the end of each post for a week. Or anything else you'd like to agree on...

Edit* Come on RWilson, I've heard your rants on Bader.
RSparrow- February 2, 2011 at 1:45 pm
OR.. ya'll could provide some sort of brand new fight picker... which you most definitely should. Fresh start.
skeletor- February 2, 2011 at 1:09 pm
@RwR - that's a good theory but I read somewhere possibly sherdog that he was adopted by an explosive family as an infant. That's probably where it comes from, you know just growing up around explosiveness.

@Turd - that is pretty insensitive man! I believe the like to be called pigmentally challenged explosive types. Come on man it's the 21st century
Turd Furgeson- February 2, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Is not Brookins one of them albino explosive types?
RwilsonR- February 2, 2011 at 12:27 pm
@ skeletor - I think Vitor might be half explosive and athletic... you know, like Kos or Jonathan Brookins.
fACE7biter- February 2, 2011 at 11:24 am
Why would a stalker like Jones say Bader never uses knees when he practically TKO'd Keith Jardine with a flying knee? C'mon son, watch the video tape.

^^Phil Davis prefers you describe him as nimble and unpredictable.
skeletor- February 2, 2011 at 10:37 am

I'm a little bit confused by the main event. Now I usually always bet on the most explosive and athletic of the two in any fight. At first glance I thought it was Anderson but everyone including Joe Rogan is saying Vitor is more explosive. Am I missing something? Is he adopted?

I hate Jones outside the ring but he is one of the most exciting fighters to watch so I hope he keeps winning. He is for sure one of the most athletic and explosive fighters in the UFC.

Fuck those oreo heads or tails in the ass with a big rubber dick.
LOKI- February 2, 2011 at 10:29 am
Yes CB Dolloway is in fact a creepy lookin dude.
budsellers- February 2, 2011 at 10:25 am
"I feel 100% that I" definitely want jon jones to lose. i am not a fan of darth bader, but i am fast becoming a non-fan of jon jones.
Goog- February 2, 2011 at 10:23 am
Somebody... please... smash Jones. Bader, the next guy... whoever. Just smash him.
jimbonics- February 2, 2011 at 10:22 am
Bonghits for Jesus.

"Forrest doesn't like being asked questions about Anderson."

Asking a victim to re-live their rape is considered bad form anyway.
Jazzninja- February 2, 2011 at 10:16 am
@Bongtar: Really? I don't recall him opining on the matter.
cecils_pupils- February 2, 2011 at 9:57 am
And here we go! - I think that works for starting a sentence with And. ;)
