Jon Jones' older brother also popped for PEDs ...

NFL suspended Colts DL Arthur Jones four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
It is yet another setback for Jones in what has been an extremely disappointing three years in Indianapolis. Jones was limited to nine games after signing a five-year, $33-million deal in 2014, and he missed all of last season after tearing ligaments in his ankle in the preseason. With Henry Anderson (ACL) still questionable for Week 1, the Colts are extremely thin along the defensive line. That lack of depth matched with his relatively small $2.5-million base salary should ensure Jones keeps his roster spot, but it would not be surprising if this is his last season in Indianapolis.

That was easily the worst UFC on Fox card to date.

Holly looked old. Valentina looked good.

What do they do with Gil now? No matter how you slice it he's 1-4 in the UFC and his lone win came against an unranked opponent where he was admittingly flash ko'd.

Especially when you consider the best women's bantamweight on the roster is actually a featherweight who will only fight at a catchweight.

Great win for Felice and she got a fight bonus too. She looked great in the grapple.

But oh Holly. Back to her weak, step back punches.

Rhonda, Holly and Miesha triple threat match for title shot

Mark Hunt's still angry about Lesnar ....

"The 42 year-old star recently appeared on “The MMA Hour”, and here is some of what Hunt had to say (quote via MMA Fighting.com):

“I’ll go and work somewhere else,” Hunt said. “Like I said, I don’t give a sh*t. If we’ve got to sue their asses, well then f*ck you, you’re going to get sued. You scummy c*nts. The problem is everyone these days, ‘man, I want to get into the UFC.’ F*ck the UFC. You’re sh*t. You motherf*ckers don’t look after nobody.

“We’ll let this f*cking white piece of sh*t f*cking stick needles in his ass and say, ‘oh, he’s going to take us all the way to the f*cking bank.’ Let’s give him f*cking millions of dollars and not worry about this motherf*cker. You know what? F*ck that and f*ck your sh*t company. Look at that for a contract. You can sue me on that, motherf*ckers.”"

Hunt made $700,000 to lose to Lesnar at UFC 200, which is four times what he made to beat Frank Mir in his previous fight. I wonder if he cashed the check.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Hunt is one of my favorite guys to support but frankly he is being a little bitch. He whined before the fight that Brock was on all sorts of PEDs and that he didn't care because he was still gonna KO him with he secret weapons and takedown defense. Now the guy gets his ass kicked an whines like this?

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

He's acting like hes the first guy to fight someone on PED's. If he was so concerned about it why did he accept the fight in the first place?

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

I think it more has to do with Dana and the UFC, and now WWE, looking the other way when it comes to Lesnar. The star that makes the money gets the exemption in his eyes.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Anyone at all going to watch this Saturday's card?

If Saturday evening rolls around and I've got nothing going on, I may head to the bar. At the very least, I'll stay at home and find a stream of the Lawler/Woodley fight.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

It's my Moms 60th birthday. I'll be skipping it. If the rest of the card wasn't the shits, I might have been inclined to order it and PVR it. I love watching Lawler fight, but other than that bout, Brown/Ellenberger is the only fight I have even a mild interest in. I'll probably find the Lawler/Woodley fight somewhere when I get home. I'd be surprised if Lawler didn't KO or at least TKO Woodley.

I had a 20% off coupon in my email for being a Fightpass subscriber so they know it's not going to sell well.

Nope. Honestly, I might even skip it if it was a free on Fox card. It might be the worst top to bottom PPV card since Dillashaw Vs. Soto.

Cyborg with the A+ troll job of Ronda. She took a recent picture of Ronda looking "soft" and congratulated her on her pregnancy.

No joke. At SDCC last week, a vendor asked this lady in front of me when if it was a boy or girl. The woman said "I'm not pregnant" ... I never thought I'd ever experience that in all my life. The guy felt so shitty and she was buying something from him. He was bagging it up when he asked her

But who looks like an ugly troll that is a man? He didn't get one over on her.

At least Ronda could actually become pregnant.
