Live Coverage begins at 10 am PT/ 1 pm ET on 07/23/14
UFC vet Chael Sonnen suspended two years for failed drug tests
Sonnen’s legal rep and co-manger, Jeff Myer, restated a response to the commission’s complaint by saying the fighter did not dispute any of the findings against him. He again asked the commission to consider Sonnen’s cooperation during the drug tests and subsequent fallout.
Vitor Belfort licensed in Nevada, will meet Chris Weidman in December
The licensing comes with three factors: Belfort must comply with random future drug testing, he cannot fight until December and he cannot have his next bout anywhere else but Nevada. Belfort's lawyer said during the hearing that Belfort had a verbal agreement to fight Weidman at UFC 181 on Dec. 6 at Mandalay Bay. The UFC made the bout official moments after Belfort was licensed.
The Fighter & The Kid
This podcast has jumped to the top of my UFC/MMA podcast list - but c'mon, once a week?. I really feel like Brendan and Bryan should be able to do at least 2 eps a week, or maybe 2 hours a pop - I mean, what else do these guys have to do during the day? Brendan habitually mispronouncing every major UFC fighter's name on the roster is a nice touch, too. I also want to hear more about Bryan's mad greco skills. I think he should do each episode shirtless.
Alexander Gustafsson injures knee, Daniel Cormier now fights Jon Jones at UFC 178
An injury to Alexander Gustafsson will prevent the Swede from rematching UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones this September. Taking his place is the undefeated Daniel Cormier.
Vitor Belfort receives conditional license to fight Chris Weidman at UFC 181
Belfort, a former user of testosterone-replacement therapy, underwent an NSAC drug test on Feb. 7 while in Las Vegas for the World MMA Awards. The test results were never released, but Belfort was scratched from a planned UFC 173 title fight with Weidman shortly afterward, citing a need for more time to ween off TRT, which the NSAC banned a few weeks after Belfort’s test.

Anthony Pettis meets Gilbert Melendez Dec. 6; admits criticism 'gets under my skin'
"My fighting style is crazy, but at the same time I've been martial arts since I was five years old. I've been fighting the same way since I was five," Pettis said. "The training camps aren't the issue. I used to think it was the training camps I toned it back in training camps. It was just one kick he threw, an inside kick he was aiming to the shin, I didn't check it right, it was the right amount of impact, and the right angle .. it's weird to me. I'm not going to go in and change anything up, if I change anything up maybe I won't have the right performance."

Exclusive: How Dwayne Johnson Battled Through an Epic Injury on the Set of ‘Hercules’
Before shooting commenced, Johnson faced the prospect of having tendon-repair surgery to take care of a serious injury he suffered many years earlier (when he wrestled under the nom du guerre The Rock). He chose to delay the procedure, but had to go under the knife to repair a triple-hernia just two weeks before the start of principal photography. (“I’m here for you,” Ratner recalls Johnson reassuring him as they revised the production schedule.) The director finds something a bit god-like about his star: “He rehabilitated himself probably five times faster than anyone else would have been able to.” Watch the entire clip to find out more about Johnson’s high pain threshold — and why he may not be human after all.
Addressing the African Big Game Hunting Controversy - MeatEater
Thought/Opinion # 1) An American girl hunting in Africa will piss off a lot more people than an American guy hunting in Africa. I think the word “sexism” gets thrown around way too much in our culture, but I’d say that this constitutes a type of lightweight sexism or at least gender bias. The anti-hunting response to women hunters reminds me of the outrage that people feel when a child commits a crime; they act as though evil has reached a new low, or that something that was once pure has now turned rotten. That some Americans maintain this idea of females as a gentler sex is excusable, because most human cultures have largely relegated combat and hunting to men for thousands of years. There’s a pragmatic argument for this: we have something called sexual dimorphism, which means there’s significant difference between the bodies of men and women. No doubt those underlying differences have been reinforced by all kinds of cultural baggage, but that doesn’t make the real differences go away. What’s interesting, though, is that there was a lot less sexual dimorphism in Neanderthals, and paleoanthropologists believe that Neanderthal women were out there hunting dangerous game right next to their guys.

UFC's Noad Lahat to head back to Israel Sunday for the fight beyond the fight
Not that Noad Lahat is looking past Steven Siler , whom he meets at UFC on FOX 12 in San Jose Saturday night…but Lahat is looking past Steven Siler. Not from a place of competitive superiority, but because he feels he has to. Lahat is the UFC’s second Israeli-born fighter. With the recent outbreak of violence in Gaza, with missiles flying over his homeland and his family ducking for cover, Lahat is relegated to his most immediate commitment. That’s his Saturday commitment. That’s the fun and games part, the payoff to a long fight camp spent at AKA getting punched by punching’s elite. Lahat’s Sunday commitment, win or lose, will be rejoining his friends in the Israeli army and taking a stand against the Palestinians who are again butting heads with the Israelis in overlapping conflict zone of Gaza. In the brutal, complicated, generation’s old conflict, Lahat, who spent three-and-a-half years in the army, will put prizefighting on hold. He flies out Sunday for the other fight. "I have to do it morally, I don’t have to do it legally," he says. "The thing is, the whole last month and a half it’s been crazy.

‘The Immortal’ Among Us - On Death’s Doorstep
Brown once survived a potentially fatal heroin overdose. | Photo:
The abandoned building they parked behind was a hallow brick shell,
about as lifeless as the trio that spilled out of the van that
muggy August 2001 night. They were looking for a dark place where
even shadows went to escape, a desolate safe zone where a simple
heroin spike served as a great elixir.
Brown was already in a comatose state, stumbling in and out of
people’s lives, pushing a brink from which few walk away. There was
the time he traipsed 10 miles in a raging blizzard to reach the
refuge of a truck stop. Another time, he curled up on a train
plank, coming down off a Xanax-alcohol high -- 20 yards away from
being crimson on a locomotive. Brown’s chicken game with death
included falling asleep in a frozen ditch and somehow escaping
hypothermia. Then there was the time his mother rushed to see him
in the hospital, driving past his totaled truck unaware it was his.
The remnants, though, were enough to make her shudder. “I hope no
one died,” she thought, only to later see her son patched together
by 80 stitches.

In other words, Belfort “admitted” to a one-time lapse of judgement in which he doubled-up on his TRT injections, and wouldn’t you know it, that happened to be the time when he was hit with a random drug test. Just a terrible coincidence, really. But hey, he’s taking responsibility. What a guy! Also, we have a NSAC commissioner suggesting that he doesn’t want to cause embarrassment by bringing up Belfort’s past steroid bust, SO HE DOESN’T BRING IT UP. Jesus Christ, this commission.
UFC boss explains why Chris Cariaso got title shot with champ Demetrious Johnson
Since a majority draw with McCall in 2012, Johnson has picked up six straight wins while winning the inaugural UFC 125-pound title and making four consecutive title defenses. Of the six wins, four have come via decision, one via knockout and one via submission. In 2013, he went 3-0 with three title defenses and three fight-night bonuses and earned Fighter of the Year consideration.

Chael Sonnen receives two-year suspension from Nevada Athletic Commission for failed drug tests
Retired UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen was handed a two-year suspension from mixed martial arts by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) at a Wednesday hearing in Las Vegas. In addition to the suspension, Sonnen will be required to pay any and all doctors' fees for the random drug tests he failed on May 24th and June 5th, as well as be expected to work with the NAC to educate fighters and the commission to improve drug testing measures in the future.
Cruz perhaps more than anyone in the lighter weight classes provides that spark to fire up fans again. In addition to talent, he also brings a dazzling smile, intelligence to the microphone, and an overall appeal among a wide range of demographics. So, when he steps into the octagon close to three years after leaving it, to take on 6th ranked Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 178 September 27, Cruz will be back at the place he is most comfortable with, facing a foe who, with a win, can put him back where he belongs–in the mix for the title he had to relinquish because of the litany of injuries. After T.J. Dillashaw stunned Renan Barao , who was to fight Cruz before his latest injury this year, to take the title, the bantamweight rankings are ripe for leap-frogging. Cruz is currently 12th but can easily zoom past others. Being on the Jones-Gustaffson card should bring the highest viewing audience since the July 4th weekend blockbuster.

Brian Stann talks Sonnen, Belfort at NSAC hearings: 'Consistency is extremely important'
“I think it’s achievable in that you got to understand: if you’re the ones trying to regulate and catch people, you got to talk to the guys on the inside,” Stann said. “It’s kind of like when investigators hire ex-criminals to help them solve a crime. To understand the ins-and-the-outs and what’s causing guys to go that route. ‘Chael, what made you want to take those substances? What made you feel like you had to take those substances? How do we stop guys from getting to that point? How do we deter them from getting to that point? If we’re handing out two-year suspensions to guys who have been caught before, would you have risked it?’ Maybe he says, ‘No, I wouldn’t have.’”
Joan Jett addresses UFC champ Ronda Rousey's use of 'Bad Reputation'
Rousey, the perhaps most well-known female fighter in MMA, uses the classic rock song to walk out from the tunnel into the cage, a fitting tribute to a fighter who has made her career as a no-holds-barred fighter. She recently posted her fourth UFC title defense and dominated top contender Alexis Davis via a 16-second knockout at UFC 175.

Rory MacDonald-Tarec Saffiedine in the works for Halifax; Jessica Eye wants Holly Holm
C.B. Dollaway, who is now ranked No. 9 among UFC middleweight contenders, is hoping to fight the winner of UFC 178's bout between Tim Kennedy and Yoel Romero, per Helwani. Dollaway wants that fight in December on FOX, which is rumored to be taking place near where Dollaway trains in Phoenix. … Helwani reported that the UFC is close to signing top flyweight prospect Henry Cejudo, a former Olympic gold medalist. Cejudo is undefeated (6-0) in MMA, but has struggled to make the flyweight maximum of 125 pounds. He recently pulled out of next month's Legacy main event.
Alexander Gustafsson out at UFC 178, Daniel Cormier now meets Jon Jones
Cormier, a former Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix champion, has long made clear his intentions of facing Jones for the belt. A two-time Olympic wrestler, Cormier made the move to 205 pounds earlier this year with the sole intention of a title showdown. He’s already picked up light-heavyweight victories over Dan Henderson and Patrick Cummins and was hoping to jump ahead of Gustafsson in the line waiting to fight for the title.
One month after release, Bruce Lee, Jon Jones are the most used fighters in EA Sports UFC
It's been a little over a month since EA Sports UFC was first released to the public, and a few days ago EA Sports put out a very interesting Infographic detailing some facts and figures based on how users are playing the game. One of the standout stats is Bruce Lee, who is the game's special unlockable character, is the most popular fighter chosen among gamers. Here's the complete top 10 after more than 65 million bouts:
Report: Olympic Gold Medalist Henry Cejudo Negotiating Contract with UFC
Henry Cejudo could soon be moving to the Octagon. | Robert
One day after withdrawing from the main event of
Legacy FC 34 , Olympic wrestling gold medalist Henry
Cejudo is reportedly in contract negotiations with the
Ultimate Fighting Championship .
Fox Sports reported the news during Wednesday’s episode of “UFC
Tonight.” Although he was unable to give specifics,
Legacy Fighting Championship promoter Mick Maynard on Tuesday
told Sherdog.com that Cejudo pulled out of his Aug. 29 bout for “a
Cejudo is 6-0 since beginning his MMA career in March 2013,
including decision wins against Ryan Hollis
Garcia under the Legacy banner. However, the Arizonan failed to
make the flyweight limit for both Legacy appearances, and it is
likely a move to the UFC would draw even more scrutiny for his
prior weight issues.
Jon Jones 'ninja' message to Daniel Cormier: 'I hope you're ready to come to daddy'
"Let me tell you a little something on Jon Jones," Cormier said. "He's a ninja on a number of levels. I don't follow Jon Jones on Twitter, but somehow he was able to send me a direct message ... The direct message said ‘I hope you're ready to come to daddy.'"
Gina Carano's talks with UFC 'getting close'
If signed, Carano would be expected to go right into a title fight against the undefeated Rousey late in the year. This potential move has divided the MMA community between those who point out that Carano would leapfrog ranked contenders despite being five years removed from her most recent fight, and those who believe such concerns are overridden by the fact the bout would likely do major business.
UFC talks with Gina Carano progressing, but there's a scheduling issue
Rousey is coming off a 16-second knockout of Alexis Davis at UFC 175 on July 5. She has her own movie commitments, starting with premieres of "The Expendables 3" next month. There are precious few contenders left for the former judo Olympic bronze medalist, which is one of the reasons the UFC is so interested in signing Carano, who was a star for Strikeforce before making the transition over to movies full-time.
