Mark Hunt goes off on UFC: “F**k the UFC, you are s**t”

Mark Hunt isn’t letting this go.

Nor should he. Following the news that his UFC 200 opponent, Brock Lesnar, popped for a banned substance, very little has been hinted from the UFC that anything will be done in light of this news. In fact, the UFC has already claimed that they don’t plan to penalize Lesnar financially and that only USADA will be able to enforce a fine.

Aside from ripping UFC and threatening to start a fighter union, “Super Samoan” Hunt has also lobbied to get a piece of Lesnar’s $2.5 million payday.

“I don’t want to be a part of this company unless they do something about this shit. They need to do something about this cheating. It’s like the whole roster is cheating. One person gets pinched and another person gets pinched, and they are not doing anything about it. People say this is the hurt business, I understand that, but if you’re going to make it the cheating sport, then let’s all fucking cheat. Let’s all cheat, stick needles in our assess and see who’s the first person to die. I mean this is ridiculous. It took years and years for something to be done about that scummy cheater Armstrong, how long is it going to take for something to happen on this sport? Until someone dies? Then let’s lay some charges against these cheaters.”

While Lesnar’s treatment may seem mild, many would certainly call it unique as Chad Mendes” two year ban from the sport following his positive test certainly doesn’t feel light.

If you ask the mammoth-hitting Heavyweight, he would personally love to see all anti-doping offenders go to an actual criminal court to answer for their transgressions, lose all of their winnings, on top of facing a fine and a five-to-10-year ban.

As far as fines go, Lesnar won’t face one from UFC, as they will leave that up to Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) when Brock eventually has his day in front of the commissioners. And if Brock and the rest of the “cheaters” aren’t punished properly, Hunt is moving on to a different promotion:

“I want to be a part of a company that says we don’t want you cheating, or else every monkey will be able to. No, I got to work somewhere else. Like I said, if we have to sue their asses, well then fuck you, you’re getting sued. You scummy cunts. The problem is, guys are like I want to get into the UFC, well fuck the UFC, you are shit. You motherfuckers don’t look after nobody. You just go, ‘Here, fight this motherfucker here, stupid fucking……we’ll let this fucking white piece of shit stick a needle in his ass and let him cheat all the way to the bank. Let’s give him millions of dollars and not worry about this motherfucker. You know what? Fuck that and fuck your shit company. You can sue me on that, you motherfuckers.”

Well…damn

Breaking: Brock Lesnar Fails An In-Competition Drug Test As Well

Brock2.jpg

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion and WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar has now also been flagged for failing an in-competition test for banned substances, not long after the news broke that he failed an out-of-competition test for his bout at UFC 200. This also comes in the aftermath of a scandal involving former Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, who suspended from fighting for a failing two tests as well.

The website ufc.com issued a statement regarding the matter.

“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Brock Lesnar that his in-competition sample collection from July 9, 2016, at UFC 200, has tested positive for the same substance as his previously announced out-of-competition collection on June 28, 2016.

“USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. The Nevada State Athletic Commission also retains jurisdiction over this matter as the sample collection was performed at UFC 200 in Las Vegas.

“Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”

Dustin Poirier vs. Michael Johnson set to headline UFC Fight Night: Hidalgo

Hidalgo, Texas is in store for one wild Lightweight main event come September.

Dusin Poirier will meet Ultimate Fighter runner up Michael Johnson in what is expected to be the nights main event.

Poirier (20-4, 12-3 in UFC) is currently ranked at No. 8 in the UFC’s Lightweight rankings after amassing a four-fight winning streak in the division after a long stint at Featherweight. Poirier lastly defeated Bobby Green at UFC 199 by knockout. He has also finished Carlos Diego Ferreira and Yancy Medeiros. His lone decision win in the division comes against Joe Duffy. Of Poirier’s 12 wins in the UFC he has 9 finishes giving him a finishing rate of 75%.

Michael Johnson (16-10, 8-6 in the UFC) will be looking to rebound from a tough two-fight losing streak to Beneil Dariush and Nate Diaz. His last win came against Edson Barboza in early 2015 and has gone 4-4 in his last eight fights. Johnson also holds wins over Joe Lauzon, Gleison Tibau, and Tony Ferguson.

UFC Fight Night 94 takes place on September 17th at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.  Other bouts have been added to this card are:

  • Derek Brunson vs. Uriah “Primetime” Hall

  • Chas Skelly vs. Maximo Blanco
  • Jose Quinonez vs. Joey Gomez

Jon Jones popped for estrogen blockers, suspended indefinitely

The banned substances which turned Jon Jones’ life into a spiral has been formally revealed.Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones tested positive for Hydroxy-clomiphene, an anti-estrogenic agent, and Letrozole metabolite, an aromatase inhibitor, during a June 16 out-of-competition drug test administered by USADA, according to multiple reports.

The Nevada Athletic Commission revealed the findings at Monday’s meeting in Las Vegas. Both Rashad Evans (for CBS Sports) and Chael Sonnen (on Joe Rogan’s podcast) previously reported Jones popped for estrogen blockers.

The commission unanimously issued Jones a temporary suspension pending a full hearing, which will be held at a date to be determined, likely in September or October.

Jones and the UFC were informed of the test failure on July 6, three days before Jones was scheduled to headline UFC 200 against Daniel Cormier. Jones was pulled from the bout and Cormier eventually met Anderson Silva in a non-title fight, which Cormier won via unanimous decision.

Jones will soon meet again with the NSAC to determine the proper ruling on, as well as what Jones’ defense will be in light of this positive test.

Fights to make after UFC 200

Cain Velasquez vs. Rothwell/Werdum winner

Velasquez returned in prime Velasquez fashion Saturday night in dismantling Travis Browne by strikes in the first round. It seems that whenever Cain faces a loss, he comes back even more destructive than before. Hopefully we will get the chance to see if that intensity remains before seeing him fight for the title again. Facing the winner of Werdum and Rothwell will be all too telling as well as likely to see us award the next title shot to a worthy contender.

Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor/Max Holloway

Another former champion returned in phenomenal fashion as Aldo bounced back from his title losing knockout loss to Conor McGregor with a definitive performance against former Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, winning over the unanimous nod from the judges after going another five full rounds with his New Jersey rival. Aldo has now earned himself the Interim Featherweight title and the right to face Conor McGregor whenever the Irishman decides to be a Featherweight again. Another possible option that is open to Aldo while he waits for Conor to face Nate Diaz at UFC 202, would be to face Hawaiian superstar Max Holloway. Holloway has garnered the longest winning streak a UFC fighter has ever amassed while not concurrently being a champion and has defeated the likes of Charles Oliveira, Jeremy Stephens, Cub Swanson and Ricardo Lamas all of which were at one point ranked in the top ten.

Daniel Cormier vs. Johnson/Teixeira winner

While Cormier did not get the opportunity to get back at his lone loss with Jon Jones, and seemingly might not get that chance for years, Cormier must now move on. With now the entire Light Heavyweight division in his sights, Cormier must now await his next challenge. Anthony Johnson and Glover Teixeira will meet at UFC 202 and with both men ranked in the top five, the winner of this titanic bout is likely to earn the next championship opportunity.

Amanda Nunes vs. Julianna Pena 

The first openly-gay women’s Bantamweight champ made history for herself and Brazil with her historic victory over longtime veteran Miesha Tate and in the main event of one of the biggest cards in UFC history. Can’t make a bigger statement than that. With the division essentially playing hot potato with the belt ever since Holly Holm snatched it from the hands of Ronda Rousey last November, it will be interesting to see what may happen in Nunes’ first title defense. With Holm facing Shevchenko later this month, Tate healing a broken nose, and Ronda still MIA, only one other woman in the division right now makes sense. That would be Ultimate Fighter winner Julianna Pena who defeated former title challenger Cat Zingano earlier on the epic card via unanimous decision in what a hotly and closely contested battle. Pena has won four straight since coming off of the Ultimate Fighter show and defeated two top 15 ranked women in Jessica Eye and now Cat Zingano. This fight will be very telling of where the division is at right now and where Nunes’ place in the history book lies

Anderson Silva Replaces Jon Jones For Three-Round Fight Against Cormier

 

CormierVSilva

In a shocking turn of events, Light-Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier will now  face former Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, at UFC 200. Silva still holds the record for being the longest reigning champion in UFC history, but his legacy was partly tarnished last year after being found guilty by the USADA for a doping violation. According to the Brazilian fight news syndicate Combate, the fight will now be a three round non-title fight instead of a five round title fight.

Silva’s last fight was a controversial loss to the current champion Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping, while Cormier’s last fight was a narrow win over Alexander Gustafsson. Bisping also campaigned to fight Cormier this weekend, but president Dana White ruled it out. Cormier will likely open up as a major favorite, but it would still be interesting to see how the fight goes.

Result: Eddie Alvarez dethrones Dos Anjos for the UFC Lightweight championship

It was a storybook finish for Eddie Alvarez. After a decorated career with Bellator as their longtime reigning champion, Eddie Alvarez is now your new UFC Lightweight champion.

Rafael dos Anjos met Eddie Alvarez Thursday night and was met with one of the greatest onslaughts ever witnessed in a championship fight. After landinga BIG right hand that wobbled the champion, Alvarez threw everything he had in an all-out attempt to claim gold. Alvarez then leaped in with a huge knee, but this allowed Dos Anjos to land on top. With ninety seconds left and back to his feet, the former Bellator star would not be denied as he continued to pursue the finish with heinous punches from every direction leaving dos Anjos very little time to react at all, which ultimately left referee Herb Dean no choice but to stop the bout, and just like that a new champion was crowned.

With this historic title win, Eddie Alvarez becomes the first fighter in MMA history to have won a title in both Bellator and the UFC.

Sherdog: Dana White Says Cormier Is Still Fighting At UFC 200

image

UFC President Dana White made an announcement that UFC Light Heavyweight Champ Daniel Cormier is still fighting at UFC 200. White made the announcement  on “The Herd,” after the devastating news that former champ and current Interim Champ Jon Jones was pulled for an alleged doping violaton.  “There’s tons of guys that are interested. So we’ll get a fight done. Cormier will fight this weekend,” said white.

No news yet of who the next opponent will be, but he did rule out Middleweight Champ Michael Bisping. “First of all, Michael Bing just won the 185 pound title. Let me tell you what Bisping does in his offseason,” White said. “When Bisping’s not training, he goes on a bender. He’s in no condition to fight Cormier.” Bisping has been actively campaigning for the fight on Twitter.

2 months, 2 weeks, 2 days…… Hmmm middle vs light heavy???? I stand by my words. I’d do it!

Gegard Mousasi is also campaigning to fight Cormier, who is scheduled to fight Thiago Santos on the preliminary card. Former contender Alexander Gustafsson has also announced interest as a replacement for Jones. Gustafsson lost to Cormier to by close split decision in a title fight in October. But as of now, the heavyweight match between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt is still being billed as the new main event this weekend.
