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

What Is It Going to Take For Ian Freeman to Put You in a Used Car Today?

(The transmission is just fine, no matter what your mechanic says.  Would a guy holding this adorable baby lie to you?)

As you may have heard, British MMA legend Ian "The Machine" Freeman has been having some tax issues lately.  Seems he forgot to mention some of the money he’s made fighting internatonally over the years on his tax returns (or whatever the British version of tax returns are — tax bobbies? yeah, that sounds right), and to pay off his debt he is being forced to sell some cars.  Specifically, Freeman will be forced to sell his Mercedes, and his wife will have to sell her Audi A4, both of which are reportedly "not in very good condition." 

Dammit, don’t they know the first rule of selling cars that are not in very good condition is that you never, ever tell people that the cars are not in very good condition?  Instead you tell them that the car runs great, rust adds character, and they’d better make their mind up soon because you have a guy coming to look at it this afternoon and he sounded really excited about it over the phone.  If that doesn’t work, offer to throw in some sheepskin seat covers and/or Yosemite Sam mud flaps.

At least the ruling allows Freeman and his wife to stay out of jail.  That news is as good for Freeman as it is for the dudes currently in jail.  Just ask Frank Mir.

I'd love to see Nog fight Mir again I think it would be a totally different outcome.

That video made my day tho.

Yeah, I heard that big nog was suffering from some sort of illness in that fight. It makes sense when you see how he dismantled cotoure. Or maybe cotoure is just too old and not that good any more and Frank mir is awesome. But then again he did get destroyed by lesnar second time around and hasn't really won a relevant fight other than his fight against big nog and his, some would say fluke, fight against lesnar.

Anyway both nogs have excellent boxing and excellent subs, so I bet he had the flu.

Nog had two opponents that fight. Frank Mir and some guy named Staph Infection.

I also had never seen that fight, it was pretty sweet. In related news, it fucking broke my heart to see Nog lose to Mir.

^Hoelzer Reich. Funny. Right after they sponsor the Martinez/Zimmer fight, right? Yeah, real funny.

That was healthy ass-whippin laid upon Frank Mir, tho. I had never seen that fight.
