Max Holloway Is Ready to Take Flight | FIGHTLAND
Just imagine the possibilities as the young striker comes into his own. Should the UFC choose to bring him along slowly, matchups with dangerous vets like Dennis Siver and Jeremy Stephens would provide both thrill and a fair welcome for Holloway into the featherweight top ten. Or, if UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby instead decides to throw him into the crucible, then a matchup with Clay Guida would be a great way to test his wrestling, and a fight with Charles Oliveira, another young prospect, would give us a real sense of whether Holloway is ready for to hang with the best. Should he pass any of these hurdles, rematches with Dustin Poirier or Dennis Bermudez—his fight with the latter being particularly deserving of a second act due to its closeness—would both be truly intriguing.
Silva, Diaz, Lombard, Evans-Smith slated for Feb. 17 Nevada commission meeting
The Nevada State Athletic Commission’s Feb. 17 meeting will have no shortage of fighters who recently failed drug tests.
NAC kept drug test results from Lombard for nearly a month, blamed lack of inquiry
When it took nearly a month for Anderson Silva's drug test failure to be reported, the delay was written off as a product of an anonymous and involved testing procedure . This time around, there don't appear to be those excuses. The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NAC) tested Hector Lombard for performance enhancing drugs immediately following UFC 182 , after his win over Josh Burkman to open the PPV card. Lombard failed the drug test, coming up positive for desoxymethyltestosterone, or DMT. And, if Brett Okamoto of ESPN is to be believed, the NAC knew of Lombard's test failure by January 13th, just 10 days later. Okamoto reported the news on Twitter .
Miesha Tate Fires Back at Sarah Kaufman Calling Her a Coward | MMAWeekly.com
Tell me you are smart enough to connect the dots?…..The point IS that Kaufman beat Meisha at a time when women’s MMA was in it’s infancy. There were no widely known women fighters and there wasn’t any BIG money in womens MMA ……Now, in 2015, there are a few women who are receiving big $$$$$ from such exposure. Being that the general public cannot stop talking about Rhonda and Meisha, it is only natural to want to piggy back off of her current notoriety……Why did Frank Mir agree to fight Brock again after he easily beat him via armbar?……..Because Brock has the notoriety to bring in the BIG BUCKS, which Frank knew he would receive part of AND, is the reason he’s open to fighting Brock a 3rd time…………Here is a clue in life that you should have picked upon once you made the transition from teenager to adult which is, “If something in this world does not seem to make any rational sense, locate where the $ money $ is, and your answer will appear” It is capitalism’s essential motto!
Ronda Rousey talks PEDs and her heartbreak at Silva's positive test
"I've been ready to fight her at any point. She's the one who left the UFC. She's the one who hasn't come to fight me. Because she's a cheater and a fraud, the last thing I'm going to do is make exceptions for her. I'm not going to move up and make things easier for her, because she's been making things easier for herself her whole life. She needs to learn a lesson that you can't do that [expletive] any more. And I'm here to teach everybody else that that is not acceptable. Cheating and bringing a weapon and trying to hurt someone with that weapon is not a way to get a consideration made for you."

Chinese Hospitals Introduce Hands-Free Automatic Sperm Extractor
Chinese hospitals are introducing a new machine which can extract sperm for donors. According to China's Weibo social platform the automatic sperm extractors are being introduced in a Nanjing hospital, capital of Jiangsu province. The pink, grey and white machine has a massage pipe at the front which apparently can be adjusted according to the height of its user. Speed, frequency, amplitude and temperature are also controllable. It has a small screen on the top which plays films for the user to help them with the extraction process. The director of the urology department at Zhengzhou Central Hospital said the machine was being used by infertility patients who are finding it difficult to retrieve sperm the old fashioned way. A website which is selling the machine for $2,800 promoting it stating 'it can give patients very comfortable feeling.'

Filing False Report To Have A Person's Guns Seized Would Be Felony Under Bill From SoCal Lawmaker
SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) — Filing a false report for a restraining order to remove guns from someone thought to be at risk would become a felony under a proposed bill by a Southern California assemblywoman.
It behooves the top promotional representatives of this sport to be as responsible as they are wealthy and powerful. The UFC (and other power brokers within the industry) must arrange and fund an elite level of testing if they wish to continue advertising their product as the Ultimate Test. More importantly, the UFC should actively want this sport to be as safe as it can be, for the good of the fighters it claims to protect, and, of course, for the good of itself and the future of this great sport. Or we might as well just accept being those kids at the circus, until we’re all told to wake up.

Pauline's Fat Loss Pak
"what's your body fat?" - a question I get daily. It's funny cause I've never been obsessed with body fat numbers. I've always said "if you look fat in the mirror you are". Two years ago in may 2009 I was weighing 121 lbs, very lean, and it was just a few months before I decided to do a body makeover once again. After several caliper tests done which showed 6% body fat I decided to go for the ultimate gold standard in body fat diagnosis: Dexa Scan. Results: 7% body fat.
Why did I do it? Well, I didn't feel comfortable at my size, but I thought it had to be that I had too much fat I "didn't know of" so just to make sure I was not delusional, I got a black and white answer. Now I new, it was "all" muscle and I couldn't really get leaner. I found myself quite at a crossroad, not being content

Thatch has won 10 straight.
Ultimate Fighting Championship hops back onto its staple
platform, Fox Sports 1, with an underwhelming roster of fights that
has been decimated by injuries. Scheduled headliner Tarec
Saffiedine went down six weeks prior to the card, and Zuffa
pulled his planned opponent, Matt Brown ,
for a new fight with Johny
Hendricks at UFC 185. Stephen
Thompson and Brandon
Thatch stepped up to the main event, but the karate master was
forced to bow out with an ailment of his own two weeks before the
Former UFC lightweight champion Benson
Henderson , who had been planning a move to welterweight, jumped
in to save the day. His matchup with the quick-rising Thatch is
certainly compelling, and the co-main event features a potentially
violent matchup between action fighter extraordinaire Max
Holloway and veteran Cole Miller .

WSOF title challenger Josh Hill's nickname is ode to pro-wrestling legend relative
Josh Hill was only 8 years old when he first started watching UFC tapes on VHS, but at no point in time was being a fighter any kind of a childhood dream. But after accidentally falling into fighting seven years ago, Hill, an undefeated bantamweight, finds himself days away from a World Series of Fighting title fight against champion Marlon Moraes (14-4-1) on Thursday night. While technically unbeaten, Hill did lose a decision during season 18 of 'The Ultimate Fighter,' where he was on Team Tate. While usually fighters on the show get a shot on the finale, and with a win, end up as UFC regulars, Dana White didn't like the men's fights, and except for the finalists, decided against bringing the other cast members back. The snub led him to WSOF, where he debuted on June 7 with a first-round knockout win over Mike Adams, giving him a 10-0 record ahead of what looks to be a classic grappler vs. striker fight against Moraes. Hill's usual M.O. is takedown and ground control. The title fight was pushed back several times. It was originally set for September, but then Hill got hurt so it was moved to Dec.
