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

Videos: Danablog #3, Belcher-Kang, + More Affliction Hype

Dana White’s UFC 93 video blog, episode 3 – Watch more free videos

Dana White’s latest video-blogging effort is very long but not very interesting.  He pumps a little iron, tries to convert kilograms to pounds, wanders around Dublin, and strikes up conversations with a few fighters.  Yawn.  Just goes to show that the tedium of anyone’s daily life is still boring, even if they’re the head of the UFC.

Alan Belcher seems to think he’s gotten a good deal for himself in securing a bout with Denis Kang, who’s making his UFC debut this Saturday.  Oddsmakers certainly don’t agree, but as Belcher points out, the vibe from the crowd in the UFC is very different from Japan.  Just how much that will affect Kang, who’s been around in this sport for a while now, that remains to be seen.

After the jump, Affliction hypes Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou vs. Renato “Babalu” Sobral with some help from Loretta Hunt and Josh Gross.

Never did I say the word "joke". I said "never was" who did NOT LIVE UP TO HIS HYPE. Yes Couture lost to Chuck twice, but he's also proven himself to be a true champ no matter what. Babs hasn't, plain and simple. Also, every time you guys say "if he buckled down" or some other such nonsense, you're proving my point!

Sokoudjou really puts the "meroon" in Cameroon.

randy lost 2 or 3 times to chuck didnt he? how does that make sobral a joke? ignorant fans...

sobral is a beast and i think he could easily be champion if he buckled down. he striking is on the puss side, but he got kicked out of UFC for choking the dog shit outta someone that talked smack..awesome. unprofessional and dangerous..but awesome

Did Belcher just say he's a title contender? Seriously? Belcher?

Kang via TKO(ass-whooping) 4.13 1st
Loretta Hunt- January 14, 2009 at 9:06 pm
Babalu is actually a really GOOD ground guy, really aggressive ground guy...and eats guys up... on the I am excited to see how a judo guy who is probably going to rely on his throws and such deals with a ground guy who could very well eat him up...on the ground and trap him. And that's it. Anybody want to see my tits? no? okay.

Was Loretta Hunt the ugly older sister from Freaks and Geeks??

Loretta Hunt, Did you just call compare this black man to an animal? I am very upset about this.

Still doing the fake Spanish accent house keeper voice even in Ireland? Racist bastard

Yeah...who else lost to Chuck twice by KO? Oh yeah....Randy Courture. Are you saying Randy is "not that good" as well? Just trying to follow your logic here...
Bootylam!- January 14, 2009 at 12:55 pm
Y,H, and M just proved my point. Babs is supposedly WAY more skilled yet STILL got KO'd. TWICE! [Proving he's not that good by not even learning from the first KO] And he even got destroyed by a man with TITS! Like I said, hopefully he'll live up to his hype.

Wouldn't that make it a foursome?

"Almost, Gorilla-like"

Fixed! :D

Babalu is the shite! Dana will be calling his cell soon I guarantee it! I can't believe he lost to One trick pony Chuck. TWICE! And he's WAY more skilled too!

How cool is it that Dana went all the way up from the lobby to Rich's room, interupted his fwap off, got a shirt signed and went back to deliver it.
Thats awesome, I love MMA even more because the fighters and promoters are very fan friendly and accesible.
Personally I dont answer the door when I fwap, shit cant be that important.

Sokodjou was described as athletic and explosive by the Affliction people, now THAT's racist

Dana White:George W::The Fertittas:Cheney & Rove. We all know who the real masterminds are.
babalunatic- January 14, 2009 at 11:18 am
actually, babalu is a pretty tough fighter with an impressive record, who was let go by the ufc for nearly anaconda choking david heath to death.
never-was? he never was a joke.

probably ricky bobby
Bootylam!- January 14, 2009 at 11:09 am
Sokoudjou vs. Babalu to see who is the best never-was. YAWN! Hopefully this fight won't be like their careers and have all the potential to be good and then not live up to the hype.

The shirt Rich signed is a England national soccer t-shirt for a fan called "Ricky" that Dana is going to personally hand over too.

Ricky Hatton possibly?

She called Sokoudjou "animal-like"

i'm hoping to see kang put on a good show. he's a tough guy with a lot of experience. i'd be disappointed if he lost.
also, it's nice to see affliction hype up sobral vs sokoudjou as well bc it should be a good bout.
Wildcard- January 14, 2009 at 10:51 am
Yeah Dana definetly benches 300 just ask his wife during the pregnancy.

Anywho Belcher says he can stand up with Kang, thats a fucking joke. A down syndrome kid has a better chance to have a threesome with Beyonce, Shakira, and Bill Cosby, than Alan Belcher winning the stand up with Kang.

And Sokoudjou's Wagon is fucking over.
