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

[VIDEO] UFC 144 Pre-Fight Press Conference

This Saturday will mark the UFC’s triumphant return to Japan for the first time in 11 years, and what a card we have in store. Aside from Frankie Edgar fighting someone not named B.J. Penn or Gray Maynard (not that we were complaining), UFC 144 also offers a light heayweight sure to be slugfest between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Ryan Bader, Yoshihiro Akiyama’s welterweight debut against Jake Shields, and Mark Hunt vs. Cheick Kongo.

The seven fight main card will be kicked off by a battle of top lightweight contenders when Joe Lauzon takes on Anthony Pettis, and the undercard features the the likes of Takanori Gomi and former K1 standout Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto, each attempting to rebound from recent losses. It’s safe to say that we are in for a hell of a night, so let’s all go get Henna tattoos to celebrate this glorious milestone.

Check out the pre-fight press conference video above, which, aside from the occasional translation flub, goes off without a hitch. Just a warning: due to the fact that everything is being translated into Japanese as it is being said, it is difficult to understand the questions at hand every so often. But honestly, who gives a shit? THE UFC IS BACK IN JAPAN, BABY!!!

While we’re discussing how awesome Japan is, check out the anime-style trailer for UFC 144 below, which is easily the coolest thing you will see all day, and possible ever.

@ drano

I feel your pain, but there is always Ben-Hur. And for what it's worth, I'm pretty sure those chariot races were fixed too.

Yeah man you know I don't understand people with cars and shit saying they gave chariot racing a chance but it didn't work out, I mean really? I don't see that shit. I mean you know I love cars and shit but it would be really nice if I could see some chariot races again.
Yeah I can't wait to get back to the REAL world.

Bahahaahaha. A "goober looking motherfucker". What a hilarious description and no, I don't know why, but befitting as well. Perhaps he should seek them out for sponsoring.
