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

Yep, That About Sums It Up

(Props: Juijitsuboxer on the UG)

You know public opinion has turned against you when, after a quarrel with someone, they’re the Nate Quarry to your Kalib Starnes.  In the great Romoshop of life, that’s about as low as you can get.  Rarely in this sport has anyone, without the benefit of a positive drug test or particularly heinous crime, gone from hero to zero in the eys of the fans as fast as Fedor Emelianenko has.  But that’s M-1 Global for you.  Breaking new ground even while doing absolutely nothing.

Who the fuck cares about all the shit talking Dana White has said about Fedor. He talked shit about Kimbo; Kimbo did a season of TUF. He talked mad shit about Tito; Tito is back in the UFC.

They do not need one fighter to legitimize their hold on MMA worldwide. You're a goddamn fool if you think ONLY FEDOR ALONE can do that.

M-1's backed by the russian mafia, who holds all dear to Fedor to keep him on a leash, which is why he's so quick to abide by their ridiculous demands.

Not that it needs to be said, but I'm kidding here (for those that can't determine the obvious).

This is the new millenium, and there's an easy way to settle this. Take it to Judge Wapner! Fedor jumps ship, DW and Zuffa pays the breach of contract settlement (has to be cheaper than what Zuffa offered him as a contract) on Fedor's behalf, and we can all move on and go about real business.

The judge can decide punitive damages based on fights remaining on Fedor's contract * average attendance * ppv sales.

So... 3 fights left * 100 ppl per show * 14 ppv sales (all the smart folks watched it streaming or dl'ed it for nothing). I figure Fedor's worth about $200k max to M-1, yet they are role-playing it as if they're a money and marketing machine. It's not like they are selling millions of PPV's and filling stadiums because of one fighter.

F*ck M-1, pay them their penalty pittance and be done with them, and have one less competing organization (if you could even call them that).

Either that, or sign every available free agent fighter (including Arlovski and Sylvia) so there's no one left for Fedor to fight. He can remain under M-1's bullshit contract, sitting on the sidelines going broke until he's too old to fight anymore.

All great athletes go where the greatest competition is PERIOD. Kobe, Lebron, Wade, could all go overseas and make more money over there. Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin could all play in Europe for more cash. If it's not about the money for M-1 Global, or it's the "respect" factor from Dana, or whatever the reason could be, it should be about the competition for Fedor. The "Good" of MMA lies in the hands of Fedor, the FIGHTER. Doing what he does best, against the best. M-1 will turn MMA into what boxing is now. A world of politics, greed, shady business - and where the best NEVER fight the best.

This is what i love about the comments section, everyone bitching at everyone all because everyone thinks that their perspective is the only serious, accurate one. Why does everyone continue to take themselves so seriously? No one can come on here and have a laugh?? If anyone truly had anything against Fedor, and not Fedor's management, that's their fault, who gives a shit? How can people come on here and talk shit on this site for being biased, and not know that it is their own retardation for coming on this site and reading biased articles? You want unbiased journalism? Where the fuck in this world does that exist?

All the people that come here and talk shit on others are just as fucking worthless as the the people that they pretend to be better than. Have a nice day.

The fact is that USA>world and UFC>rest when it comes to mma. M1 will slow walk the last 3 fights and pump the fedor-well dry. His only true HW shot was to be in the UFC. By the time he makes it back, even if he is 3-0....he will out of touch with what serious competition is. In the meantime, he can keep fighting UFC rejecteds and test dummies....ya know....BOGs,AA, and Syliva.

id love to see what ufc fan looks like. nothing would be funnier than to see the dipshit saying 'fedor is a pussy who doesnt fight' in real life."

You're kinda queer ain't ya boy? You wanna see what I look like? You mean like naked or something? You ARE kinda queer ain't ya boy?
Now what does you getting to see me change how I feel? I would tell FAKDOR to his stupid mongoloid looking face he is a pussy for not signing with UFC. Tell me what he would do to me? You are aware they can't just attack people cause they dare to have an opinion, but I would love for his dumb russian ass to attack me, I bet I would make more money in the fight than he would!
Now shut up, and stop trying to picture me naked you fruit roll up.
trsigley- August 2, 2009 at 6:04 am
Is Fedor even still relevant? If he never fights again would anyone except his fans even care? Maybe he can just keep fighting Arlovski and Sylvia over and over again......
Seoul Brother- August 2, 2009 at 5:47 am
No, it's Juicy Tits Barnett's fault for fucking up the fight.

"Gee, I had no idea it was gonna show up TWICE"
"I swear it's a false positive."
"I didn't intentionally shoot up. Professor Xavier used his wooga wooga mind powers to load up a syringe with artificial nut juice and he shot me in the ass with it."

It's also Tom Atencio's fault for being one of the worst MMA pimps EVER.

I hope both of these fucking losers get shanked with a rusty ka-bar dipped in hantavirus.

leonard cohen- August 2, 2009 at 12:19 am
is it really fedors fault that he didnt fight the number two heavyweight in the world tonight?

Fedor who?
I thought for sure we were NOT talking about nobody losers who are to scared to fight in the big leagues.
The only ones who care are the gay Fedor fans, and I have seen enough of their stupidity.
Are we done now? Can we move on to ANY fighters who actually fight and are not pussy's?
leonard cohen- August 1, 2009 at 11:25 pm
???? why does fedor need the ufc? hes making plenty of money as is. he has stopped the two previous ufc champs before randy in the last year. in the first round! he needs to fight the 4-1 brock? not really.
KINGMADE- August 1, 2009 at 11:07 pm
Leonard is now sucking off any pro Fedor fans that post. Fedor is good, but he has only beaten cupcakes the last few years. He needs this more than the UFC needs him. I say fuck em. I am tired of hearing about all this bullshit. Move on. Nothing to see here.
leonard cohen- August 1, 2009 at 10:48 pm
im glad some people with common sense are speaking up. i hope he takes any attention away from the ufc that he can. fuck dana.
tallkitchenbags- August 1, 2009 at 8:22 pm
OneTwo speaks the truth. Fedor has absorbed a lot of shit and disrespect from DW over the years. Good on him for turning down the initial offer which might very well have been insulting. The UFC has some pretty draconian policies regarding fighter's images and sponsorship and I'm glad Fedor turned them down. UFC needs him if they are to legitimize their hold on MMA worldwide. Until DW lands the Emperor, it's a blot on their record and it must irk him something fierce to be known as the guy who couldn't put together the biggest fight of the day. Sorry Dana, no hegemony for you.
Think_Act_Prevail- August 1, 2009 at 7:59 pm
All I have to say is this.

Anyone who has turned their back on Fedor, or suddenly leapt upon the "Fedor is a bitch" bandwagon, go to the M-1 global site. Look up their fighters and click on Fedor.

Are you there? Alright, now look at his championships!

The man is the Pride champ of 2066!

Fedor is -such- a badass that he's won titles which won't exist for another 57 years!

But that also leads to the idea that pride will become its own promotion again. Which means; by 2066 or any time between now and then, Fedor will not only be be champion in another 57 years, but also disassociate Pride from the UFC altogether.

Fedor -- he's so good he transcends time. He is a machine, sent back through time (the year 2066 apparently) to terminate all negotiations that may give him the opportunity to test his "pfp best fighter alive" skills. Killing his chances at making millions is just an added perk.

Comparing M-1 Global to a completely unfeeling machine bent on domination and control -- not much of a stretch when you think about it.

..or they should just proof-read their "co-promotion" worthy site better. Whichever.
One Two- August 1, 2009 at 7:57 pm
fuck it i've had it. This shits personal and I'm glad fedors sticking to his guns. i hope fedor never goes to the UFC, first dana trys to fuck him with some bullshit offer just like he did with alot of pride guys like hellboy another one of my favorite fighters, then he talks shit about fedor for two years then wants to resign him with shit he should of offered the first time and then refuses to co promote which would be fucking awesome, fuck the UFC! Fedor don't give a shit hes fought for the japanese who are true fans. you think brock lesnar gives a fuck what the russians think of him I'm sure fedors the same way about Americans. this makes Fedor even more Awesome that he didn't give in to the UFC and help them become the monopoly on MMA that they're trying to become.
baldmidget- August 1, 2009 at 7:34 pm
he has been on the market for what a week? why would he want to entertain all the possible offers.

there is a reason why he doesn't stay at 60 dollar hotel rooms when travelling. despite m-1 being assholes, they do have some business acumen.

arguably the UFC is jumping in to overpay him as he won't be a massive draw to the mouth breather fans. that is if the details of the contract were true, which you guys seem to have initially took as gospel (congrats you won't ever get a better offer), then came back on stating that nothing could be trusted out of either sides mouths.. and now seem to again take as quasi gospel..

There is no need for him to sign with the ufc inside of a week and get on a ppv in 2 months. Sure all the internet commandos myself included would love to see it but yeah..
AussieJosh- August 1, 2009 at 7:09 pm
FEDOR IS UNDER CONTRACT WITH M1!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREE FIGHTS LEFT HE SAID!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT HIM TO DO! so maybe after that he will go to the UFC but one would think he is nearly past his peak!
Smeewa- August 1, 2009 at 7:05 pm
Fedor is still awesome.

way cooler than brock.
reddog- August 1, 2009 at 6:22 pm
btw, no one has ever beaten fedor.

this will get worked out, with the ppv between chestnar and ice cream goin down new years eve. and that is my wild speculation of the day.
joey- August 1, 2009 at 4:45 pm
The UFC hype or dis-hype machine is at it again! So what if M-1 wants a healthy chunk of PPV revenue, they are CO-PROMOTING the fight. The UFC only cares about money, why shouldn't M-1? Every time Dana fucks over a UFC fighter for 100 PERCENT of their image or moneymaking ability, everyone goes to the presses. When the most elite MMA fighter in the game today turns it around, poor old UFC and Dana White. Doesn't seem fair.

If there's anyone who can diss the UFC and still carry on a legacy, its Fedor. You may disagree with M-1, but don't disrespect Fedor. The man has only gone 30-1 and beat the shit out of everyone he has fought. Georges "Tap Out to Strikes" St Pierre and Anderson Silva cannot say the same....
reddog- August 1, 2009 at 2:57 pm
First off....i agree with 831...if you are posting upwards of 5 paragraphs, you might want to edit. Rambling on makes us ignore you

Anyone who says Fedor is scared obviously ignore the fact that he decimated Pride's HW division. Including Big Nog, who not that long ago fought for the interim HW UFC belt. And Cro Cop in his prime. And Coleman. So i guess the UFC features cans now? I also love that Arlovski is now labeled a can for Fedor. Perhaps these people dont remeber his 5 fight win streak going into that match. Yes, we all now know he suffers from extreme glassjawitis.

Fedor will sign with UFC, dont patient
