  MMA’ Antonio Junior Silva steroid hearing set for Oct. 22

Antonio Silva steroidsOctober 22 will be a turning point in Antonio ‘Junior’ ’s mixed martial arts career. Will Silva continue to wear the EliteXC’s heavyweight championship belt?

October 22 is the date for the Brazilian fighter appeal hearing on his alleged steroid use. And if the initial decision by the California Athletic Commission is upheld, Silva would be served with a 12-month suspension. He would also have to pay the fine of $2,500.

Silva tested positive for the anabolic steroid boldenone on July 26 this year, after his victory over Justin Eilers. Silva denied any wrongdoing. Following the announcement of the test results, Silva issued this statement:

“Dear Family, Friends, Fans and Public, I did not use the steroid Boldenone, or any other steroid of prohibited substance. I don’t agree and never have agreed with the use of this kind of product in order to win, for this is cheating. I will go to the full extent of my power and the law to prove my innocence in this matter.”

Alex Davis, Silva’s manager, maintains his fighter did not take the steroid.

“It’s a false positive. He got tested positive for something he didn’t take,” said Davis in August, shortly after the release of the test results. “I will not let my fighter sit back and be wronged like this. I just won’t.”

Silva’s camp is contesting the test results insisting that Silva could not have taken the banned compound because he is suffering from acromegaly, a hormonal disorder in which the pituitary gland produces excessive amount of growth hormone. One of the most common symptoms of acromegaly is enlargement of extremities such as the hands and feet.

Davis stresses that, “It would be completely insensible or even dangerous to make use of any other steroids or substances that could worsen that kind of problem.”

Silva’s camp hired Howard Jacobs, an attorney who is no stranger to such cases. Jacobs has represented Sean Sherk, another notable MMA fighter who tested for the steroid nandrolone. Jacobs was able to cut in half Sherk’s one year suspension to only six months.

The appeal hearing will take place at the Ronald Reagan State Building in Los Angeles, Calif., at 10:00 a.m. PT.

  Kimbo Slice gets beaten to death by Seth Petruzelli no steroids

There was a lot of talk about MMA fighter/Street fighter Kimbo Slice in the past year or so.  Ever since making his debut fighting on Youtube and other video sharing networks, for his boss – a porn site, he’s become a “huge” MMA start.  However, we all know and stated he was a joke, a big/weak joke.  Today kimbo slice proved to be a joke when he was knocked out in 14 seconds by Seth Petruzelli on EliteXC.

Here is a GIF of the knockout, no need for a video since it was only 14 seconds!

Kimbo was originally was supposed to fight Ken Shamrock – The worlds’ least dangerous man who is also the worlds’ biggest jacked up steroid users.  Unfortunately for Kimbo and EliteXc, instead of a washed out Ken Shamrock, they got a light heavyweight Seth Petruzelli, who was giving up about 30lbs. to Kimbo “the Joke” Slice.  All in all, today was Ken Shamrocks biggest knockout, as he likely delivered the knockout blow to EliteXC – most likely putting the promotion out of business by end of this year.

There were photos of Kimbo on the interent with a huge GUT, like he was really abusing human growth hormone (HGH) or IGF-1, so it seems HGH doesn’t really help you win fights.  Talent does!

  War of words heats up between Ken Shamrock and Kevin Ferguson as “Heat” draws near

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

EliteXC Heat on October 4 will be the venue for both Ken Shamrock and Kevin ‘Kimbo Slice’ Ferguson to prove something. Shamrock’s goal is to shut up his critics who are suggesting retirement for him. To Ferguson, it is to validate his position in mainstream MMA.

Indeed, big stakes are in for both mixed martial artists. During an intense teleconference on Thursday, Shamrock was quite vocal about his feeling towards the fight and the fighter he’s pitted against. It was clear to Shamrock that he would be a pawn to the promotion’s big event, which is to take place at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise in Florida. Shamrock did not mince words expressing his views about the whole thing.

“That is absolutely what this is,” Shamrock said. “I’m absolutely taking it as an insult, and I’m going to smash it back in their face.”

Indeed, Shamrock (26-13-2) will have to deliver a smashing performance; otherwise, the public outcry for his retirement will grow louder. Shamrock’s age and record are working against him. He is 44 years old, well past the prime of any fighter. He suffered defeats in eight of his 10 last matches. Shamrock is now on a five-fight losing streak and it was apparent he did not put up a good fight in those losses – he has not survived the first round in any of his last five matches. That’s a great disappointment from a man who’s been nicknamed as “The World’s Most Dangerous Man.”

“All I’ve got to say is that I apologize for my last couple of performances,” Shamrock said. “I have no excuses. On Oct. 4, I will shut everybody up and make amends for those [losses] by putting Kimbo’s lights out.”

Ferguson (3-0), then, became at the receiving end of Shamrock’s fierce words. “After it’s over,” Shamrock said, “I’m going to shave your goatee.”

Ferguson, meanwhile, resisted to take the verbal bait and shrugged off Shamrock’s comments. “I’m not a s–t talker,” he said.

Ferguson was very much aware that he would not prove anything by talking – after all, he is not only at the receiving end of Shamrock’s nasty remarks but also of the persistent speculation that he has yet to find his footing in mainstream MMA. Ferguson gained popularity via the Internet, appearing in several filmed underground streefights before his introduction to commercialized MMA.

His performance at his last bout earned criticisms. Although he was able to defeat Pride Fighting Championships veteran James Thompson, many said Ferguson was ‘out of sorts’ when his opponent pushed the action to the ground. Ferguson considered that bout, as well as the nasty post-fight reviews, as worthwhile lessons.

“Every fight makes me a more complete fighter,” Ferguson said. “I’m prepared for a lot of s–t. Losing’s not an option, but if it happens, I’ll learn from it and come back from it. Ken’s really going to have to be Superman to beat me.”

Yet, the 34-year-old fighter from Florida was not underestimating Shamrock’s fighting skills.

“I grew up watching Ken,” Ferguson said. “I’m honored to fight a guy like him. If I beat Ken’s ass, I’m good. This guy has the ability to f–k somebody up. I’m not taking this s–t lightly. I want a guy who’s going to try and kick my ass, try to knock me out, try to break my leg. He still has the ability to pull something off. I don’t underestimate anybody.”

Shamrock, on the other hand, showed no respect for Ferguson’s abilities.

“I don’t respect his power,” Shamrock said. “The only time he’s knocked anyone out is when they were tired. At this point, I have no respect for him at all. I’m going in there to whip his ass.”

And, seasoned fighter as he is, Shamrock openly acknowledged what his triumph over Ferguson could mean to him.

“It’s a huge thing for me and my career,” he said. “I can taste this one. I want this bad. He’s a fast-rising star, and this is an opportunity for me to get in the ring and revive my career.”

And to those people who want to see him retired in some obscure Mexican town, Shamrock has some parting words for them.

“People are asking the question, ‘Should I be in the ring?’” Shamrock said. “I guarantee I’m going to answer the question and put a period at the end of it.”

Remember, Ken Shamrock is a walking and talking example of steroid abuse and HGH abuse.  He was so pumped up on anabolic steroids that he couldn’t move properly.

  AFL’s Emily Thompson talks about MMA career path

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

It’s rare to find a woman fighting it off on the octagon; even rarer to find a woman with communications degree to get her message across with hard-hitting fists. But that’s the way it is with Emily Thompson. The 23-year old communications degree holder is making a living out of talking fists and flying knees.

And since the prospects for her are looking good – as she is now one of the new female recruits of the American Fight League – makes the case of Thompson even more remarkable.

Thompson is game to talk about the path that had led her to the sport of MMA and eventually to the AFL.

“Originally, I’m from Anchorage, Alaska,” Thompson explained. “They would put shows on there monthly. It always was exciting for me to go and watch. I was always like, ‘Man, if they had this for girls I would totally sign up. Where do I sign? Let’s get this going.’

“At one of the intermissions, actually, during one of those events, they were saying how they were looking for females to get started. So I was one of the few that went down and piqued my interest. I actually took a fight two weeks after that.”

The determined Thompson had found time for the sport. In 2005, when she had a time off from her studies, she was able to fight twice at the Alaska Fighting Championship. Her fighting instincts and athleticism (she played soccer in college) compensated for her lack of proper martial arts training, winning the two bouts that summer of 2005.

“If you call having an older brother and a bunch of friends beating you up martial arts, then yes (I had experience),” Thompson said of her status before her debut. “I didn’t have any real training background, which may not have been very smart. Or it could have been the smartest thing I’ve ever done because now it’s kind of what I’m doing for a living.”

Thompson knew that smarts do not make winners in MMA – nothing replaces real, arduous MMA training. Her next step was to seriously train for future bouts.

“I went to school at Sonoma State, where I just graduated,” Thompson explained. “I played soccer there all four years. I never had time to really make [MMA] a priority because playing a college sport is kind of like a full-time job anyways.

“But as soon as I graduated and finished soccer, I found Nor-Cal Fighting Alliance, which is where I train now. It’s kind of been history ever since. I threw myself right into the mix. I didn’t waste any time.”

“The way that we train up there is unlike any other gym I’ve ever seen before,” Thompson said. “I basically have a gym full of coaches. I don’t have just one coach. I learn from everybody in there. Dave Terrell is actually the owner of the gym and my main coach. He is the most knowledgeable person in jiu-jitsu in the world, if you ask me.”

After the two bouts in 2005, Thompson made a comeback to the ring this year. It’s a long break but the hiatus did not negatively affect Thompson as she earned a victory via TKO.

“I was still training periodically throughout that time off,” Thompson explained. “I just never had the time to actually get a fight and totally prepare for it. But it’s not like I wasn’t training or doing anything those three years — like I went off to Africa or anything to do nothing.

“I’m always active. I was always training in some sort of way. If it was soccer or anything, I was always active. I consider that I was off working out.”

Now, with college studies and sport behind her, Thompson is concentrated in getting top-notch training at Nor-Cal Fighting Alliance. As for her new contract with AFL, Thompson is eager to fulfill her three-fight deal with the organization.

“I was pretty happy with this signing,” Thompson said. “It’s a three-fight deal, and it’s 18 months. That’s what I look forward to — to know that I’m going to have three fights in the next year and a half.

“That’s the one thing that’s been so hard. It’s so unpredictable. I’m a very punctual person. I like to know when I’m going to be here or there, my training schedules. And having this kind of contract laid out it gives me a good heads-up of what’s going to be happening in the next 18 months of my life.”

And Thompson has a clear-cut fighting goal and philosophy, a testament that she is a no-nonsense fight artist.

“My goals are basically to beat every opponent that they put in front of me,” Thompson said. “That’s what I’m going to train to do. And that’s my job, to go and win.”

  Randy “HGH” Couture ready for a comeback fight in UFC before yearend

Randy Couture

It looks like Randy Couture and the Ultimate Fighting Championship is finally patching things up.

It was reported that Couture, the UFC’s reigning heavyweight champion, could fight for the promotion by year’s end, an indication that their legal battle is reaching a resolution.

Couture’s future fight could be a part of an out-of-court settlement with UFC. One source close to the fighter said that the fight could be Couture’s ticket to walk away from the organization without legal entanglements.

It is unclear at this time, however, if UFC will be amenable to Couture’s concession.

The 45-year-old fighter resigned from UFC in October 2007 based on several issues. Apparently, Couture was dissatisfied with the treatment and compensation he received from the organization. Also, Couture has also some issues over UFC’s failure to sign Fedor Emelianenko, who was a free agent then. Couture had wanted to fight Emelianenko, the number one ranked heavyweight champion. Zuffa LLC, UFC’s parent company, believed that Couture has two more fights as per his fight contract.

In February this year, Couture signed a contract with HDNet Fights promotion, which later filed a suit against UFC in a Dallas district court to obtain a declaratory judgment regarding the contractual status of Couture, nicknamed “The Natural”. A Texas appeals court, however, decided in favor of Zuffa earlier this month. The court conditionally granted UFC’s request for a stay against the motion.

For those of you who don’t know, Randy Couture claims to the name, Randy “The Natural” Couture, but with his big head he’s obviously abusing human growth hormone (HGH). It’s easy for him to use a lot of HGH since there was to real testing for human growth hormone (HGH) for many years, and there is no real tests for HGH to this day. HGH testing is not like anabolic steroid testing.

  Georges St. Pierre- B.J. Penn rematch on the works

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

gsp-bj-pennAnother explosive battle between welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn might take place next year, according to St. Pierre’s manager Shari Spencer.

In a recent radio interview, Spencer confirmed that a repeat encounter could happen on Jan. 31 in Las Vegas.

“That’s my understanding,” said Spencer. “I know [UFC President] Dana [White] has been announcing it publicly. We haven’t officially signed a bout agreement, but everything is pointing toward January 31 in Vegas against B.J. Penn.”

In March 2006 at UFC 58 USA Versus Canada, St. Pierre won via a split decision over Penn.  The 29-year-old Penn currently holds UFC’s lightweight championship belt and fans want to see these two fighters deliver classic octagon action.

Spencer confirmed news of the planned 170-pound title bout on the heels of intensive renegotiations with Zuffa LLC, parent company to the UFC, to retain St. Pierre’s services.

“We’ve been in long discussions with the UFC for several months,” said Spencer. “I am not at liberty to say anything right now. But there should be some news coming out regarding that very shortly.”

St. Pierre’s recent bout earned him a unanimous decision over Jon Fitch at UFC 87 Seek and Destroy last August 9. After that match, the Canadian fighter had one fight remaining on his contract with UFC. And there had been rumors the “Rush” might end up with opposing promotion, particularly Affliction Entertainment. Now that St. Pierre’s services had been retained by UFC the rumors have been dispelled.

BJ Penn is coming off a win over Sean Sherk, who was suspended from the UFC and lost the UFC lightweight title due to testing positive for anabolic steroids.  He denied using steroids and stuck to his story.  The anti-steroid BJ Penn slammed Sean Sherk for steroid use, but couldn’t go further.  He defeated Sean Sherk but didn’t defeat the rumor about Sherks’ steroid use.  Of course in MMA/UFC and every other sport, HGH is widely used because there is no test for it – and judging by BJ Penns’ big forehead, he’s a HGH lover!

  Robbie Lawler- Joey Villasenor possible rematch on EliteXC’s November card

Posted By

Robbie Lawler (16-4) might not go ahead with his plan to take a personal time off from the cage for the remainder of the year. Following his win over Scott Smith in July, he  said he intended to take a break but now MMA fans will likely see “Ruthless” in action again as soon as November.

There have been reports that Lawler will face off again with Joey Villasenor (26-6) for EliteXC event slated for November 8. Same reports say the bout is “pretty much a done deal.” The card will broadcast on Showtime cable network.

EliteXC Vice-President Jared Shaw’s has hinted of the possible rematch with his recent interview.

“Joe [Villasenor] will definitely be appearing sometime in the fall,” Shaw said. “And he’s definitely in line for a world title shot.”

Villasenor is currently riding on a three-win streak but he still has to get his revenge on Lawler. Villasenor was knocked out by Lawler via a flying knee at PRIDE 32 Real Deal on October 2006. The 6-foot Albuquerque native says he’s looking forward for the chance to fight it out again with Lawler.

“[Lawler] caught me with his first right, he dazed me, and the rest is history,” Villasenor said. “Ever since that night I think about it and him all the time. … I would really like the opportunity to compete against him again.”

The opportunity to fight in his hometown has been lost when EliteXC’s card was cancelled. Said card was supposed to take place on Sept. 20 in New Mexico. But it looks like it’s a scenario of opportunity lost and opportunity gained for Villasenor as he has now the chance to grapple the title from Lawler.

The bout will be Lawler’s third title defense in less than six months. Lawler, currently WAMMA’s fifth-ranked middleweight, is holding on to the title with tenacity as this bout will be Lawler’s third title defense in less than six months. Lawler’s record now shows a five-bout winning streak.

Also a note, a lot of EliteXC athletes have tested positive for anabolic steroids, so don’t be suprised to see the november even full of steroid accusations.   MMA’s Antonio Silva disproves steroid use

  MMA’s Antonio Silva disproves steroid use

Antonio Silva steroidsMixed martial arts heavyweight champion Antonio Silva pleads innocence to steroid use allegations. The allegations stemmed from the California State Athletic Commission’s release of Silva’s doping results on Thursday.

According to the CSAC, the fighter’s urinalysis showed traces of the anabolic steroid boldenone. The test was conducted during the Brazilian’s bout against Justine Eilers at the EliteXC card on July 26. As a result, Silva was immediately suspended for one year and fined $2,500.

Alex Davis, Silva’s manager, is planning to contest the disciplinary action and to request a hearing before NSAC.

“It’s a false positive. He got tested positive for something he didn’t take,” said Davis from his home outside Rio de Janeiro. “I will not let my fighter sit back and be wronged like this. I just won’t.”

In a statement, Silva also denied he committed any wrongdoing. “I did not use the steroid Boldenone, or any other steroid of prohibited substance. I don’t agree and never have agreed with the use of this kind of product in order to win, for this is cheating. I will go to the full extent of my power and the law to prove my innocence in this matter.”

Boldenone is an anabolic steroid approved for veterinary use only. Equipoise is one of the popular brand names of boldenone which is used mainly to treat conditions of horses, such as injury and diseases. This steroid also reportedly improves the well-being of horses as it increases protein synthesis.

According to Sherdog.com, Silva has been denied licensure in the state of California in June 2007 because “an abnormal brain scan of the athlete showed signs of a tumor.” Silva reportedly suffers from the condition known as acromegaly, which causes enlargement of the extremities and face due to an overactive pituitary gland. The 6-foot-4 Brazilian underwent medical treatment two months later to surgically remove the tumor and fought three times since.

  KJ Noon’s camp will not beat EliteXC’s deadline

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

kj-noons-steroidsIn sports like MMA, a career plan is better than a fight plan. This seems to be the belief of Mark Dion, KJ Noons’ manager.

EliteXC Vice President Jared Shaw has issued a 5 p.m. PT deadline for Noons’ camp to sign a bout agreement to face off again with Nick Diaz on an Oct.4 CBS broadcast. Dion isn’t submitting to Shaw’s demands.

“The update on [the deadline] is nothing is going to happen with it,” Dion said. “That’s what’s going to happen with that. I don’t care about how many threats [Shaw] wants to pull. We’ll be doing a press conference if EliteXC doesn’t see the light here pretty soon and if Shaw doesn’t stop talking [expletive].”

Noons already beat Diaz and, in Dion’s opinion, fighting it out again with Diaz will accomplish little for Noons, if at all.

“As far as Nick Diaz, he’s not the No. 1 contender out there,” Dion said. “To [EliteXC] he is. He’s the number one (for getting) eyeballs to (watch) them. They’re pushing on eyeballs versus a career move for a champion like KJ. KJ is really not the one who gets anything out of the fight. Diaz does and so does ProElite.”

The two camps are unlikely to see eye to eye – Shaw hints that Noons and Dion’s stance has something to do with contract and pay and Dion, meanwhile, points out the core of the issue is the choice of opponent.

To Dion, his fighter is now the reigning lightweight champion and that position can issue its own demands. Noons is now primed to fight for recognition and that comes only if he’s offered to be pitted against the best EliteXC can offer says Dion.

“I would think Eddie Alvarez is the No. 1 contender,” Dion said. “He’s definitely ranked higher than Nick Diaz. KJ already beat Nick Diaz.”

Alvarez, however, is taking a personal time off and is currently unavailable. Dion feels that is not the reason behind the plan matchup between Noons and Diaz.

“Eddie Alvarez is getting married, but that’s not our problem,” Dion said. “People get married in five or 10 minutes.”

Dion says if the situation is not patched up soon, he will hold a press conference to bring everything out in the open.

“We’ll do a press conference to discuss everything,” Dion said. “But there’s nothing in it for KJ unless [EliteXC] finally wakes up a little bit. That’s why we’ll have a press conference. I don’t like to talk and beat a company that’s already beat down. I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully they’ll see the light.”

That press con can be the venue to explain some issues but, in the meantime, Dion likes to shed some light on his role in the negotiation process.

“I don’t bend over for nobody, and I don’t let my fighters do it,” Dion said. “I’m not a booking agent. I don’t book my fighters and schmooze deals to work for the promoters. I work for my fighters.”

And as for the EliteXC organization, the manager wants to send this message across: “Forget 5 o’clock,” Dion said. “I ain’t waiting until 5 o’clock. If [EliteXC officials] are holding their breath, then someone’s going to pass out.”
