Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video Hype: UFC 117 Extended Preview, Roxy and Sarah Make Their Final Preparations


"To talk about me is easy," Anderson Silva says in the above preview vid. "Try to beat me." Ah, there’s the rub. Chael Sonnen‘s trash talk has been absolutely epic in the run-up to this fight, but it remains to be seen if he can even back up one tenth of it in the Octagon. Meanwhile, Roy Nelson has finally earned Dana White’s respect with his knockouts of Brendan Schaub and Stefan Struve, and is "a definite contender for the heavyweight championship." To get his shot, he’ll have to become the first UFC fighter to endure the fists of Junior Dos Santos, who has been leaving a very impressive trail of bodies in his wake. It’s a matchup that guarantees excitement, as opposed to main event, in which…well, if Silva dances around and mocks his opponent for five more excruciating rounds, don’t act like you didn’t see it coming.

After the jump: E. Casey Leydon follows Roxanne Modafferi and Sarah Kaufman as they prepare for their 135-pound title match at Strikeforce Challengers, tomorrow night in Everett, Washington. The event kicks off on Showtime at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

After watching that video I think Roxanne's best chance is to tickle Kaufman into submission.

"iDestroy" your delusional if you think that Big Country's gonna kill JDS.
Honestly this fight sucks cuz as I really like both those fighters, slightly partial to "Cigano" cuz I met him and he's a fucking smart monster.

But back to my point no one is going to "kill" much less "man handle" JDS as he's too fast, too slick and too strong, and unlike a Slice of Bimbo he can get out under the moon that is RBCN.

And Silva vs Sonnen, let the lesser douchebag win.

Has Dana "made it up" to us yet?

Jake Shields is so boring, he actually fought for the UFC three times already and held a title in two different weight classes at the same time. Only nobody remembers it.

Jon Fitch vs Jake Shields would be fucking awesome if it just didn't happen...

Jon Fitch is so boring we are unable to find humorously hyperbolic things to say about him.

Jon Fitch and Jake Shields are so boring...that if they fought...the UFC would cut to a scene where wind was blowing a field of wheat around...and the next day everyone would say the fight ended up being more exciting then they thought it would be.

Who is more boring Jon Fitch or Jake Shields?
iDestroy- July 22, 2010 at 10:35 am
Also, Big Country's gonna kill JDS. War Nelson..

Yeah...I'm really partial to muay thai and Bjj. Being a student of all fighting techniques....Silva's foot work and use of angles make me believe in magic. His creativity, knees and kicks are out of a movie. That mixed with his solid bjj..and he is the prototype for my favorite fighter. I just wish he wouldn't get so bored that he has to act like he has autism. Hopefully he beats Sonnen...they give him Belfort, and if he can beat's off to Lhw.

Seriously, she was annoying before that with her boring fights and whining about being on a Challengers' card instead of a non-Challengers card. News flash, baby, no one wants to see you or women's MMA.

Muay Thai is my first love, so I will always be partial to whomever uses the most distinguished art of fighting. That would be Silva.
Sonnen is a good fighter but I always disregard the one fighter with the biggest mouth. That would be Sonnen.
I am hoping that Silva shows his skills and art in his fight with Sonnen. If he decides that it's time to showboat, or fuck around. I will start cheering for Chael. Just like I did with Silva's fight with Mia. No fighter deserves the humiliation that I seen with Damian and Anderson. It was a black-eye for MMA. Dispite Anderson getting the "W" in my eyes he won the fight,... but lost the battle.

Just curious? why do you dislike Sara Kaufman after that video piece?
justscrappin- July 22, 2010 at 9:59 am
It's just hilarious to me...cuz if you look at the history of Chael Sonnen....he always gets his ass kicked by submission artists. Anyone that is decent at submissions catches him. Look at the suspects...Babalu, Horn, Maia. Now everyone can see that Maia would've done it...but Horn and Babalu are that next tier under when it comes to subs. I believe even if Sonnen can wade through Silva's strikes....(which I don't think he can) he will get caught. If Silva can throw a triangle on Lutter...he can do the same shit to Sonnen.

@ boss
Yeah Sonnen is an idiot, most people realize that, but Silva is a jackass, so we have a battle of the dunces.
I could't care less who wins this fight, I hope Silva gets explosive diarrhea and Sonnen breaks an ankle on the way to the fight.
Good thing the rest of the card is decent.
BossNasty- July 22, 2010 at 9:27 am
No matter which Silva shows up Sonnen will not win this fight. Sonnen is lame and all his cronie nuthuggers are even worse. It's one thing to talk shit about what you want to do or think you can do and it's another to just lie. Sonnens comment that he's beat every champion except for one should expose his as a crackpot loon who's probably not mentally fit to fight, but for some reason the fighter who has proven to be one of the best fighters ever and Sonnen still has a following. Hey I beat every champ in every weight division twice can you all come lick my ass now?
glassjawsh- July 22, 2010 at 9:23 am
i dislike sarah kauffman even more now, war roxy
Jugger- July 22, 2010 at 9:09 am
So, are we buying the hype?

I like Rogan's comment, "There is absolutely no way this fight won't be a war!"

Which Anderson shows up? The lazer-beam-for-fist, Matrix-esque, devastator? Or the knee-punching, scissor-kicking, clown?


Viva Hate- July 22, 2010 at 8:51 am
Man, my MMA math is all messed up for Silva vs. Sonnen

See I divided by the square root of Demian Maia and multiplied by Nate Marquardt but do I add or subtract Yushin Okami. And where do Forrest Griffin and Jeremy Horn fit in this equation.

Anyway, my prediction, whoever wins this fight is a dick for one reason or another.
