Sour Stench of Promoter Greed
« Reply #658 on: November 17, 2013, 05:20:16 PM »
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1853941-ufc-167-dana-white-georges-st-pierre-and-the-sour-stench-of-promoter-greed

From the article:

At the end of his title fight with Johny Hendricks, Georges St-Pierre was not right in the head. Already looking like he'd repeatedly run his face into a wall, St-Pierre showed an even scarier sign of the damage he had sustained. In his corner, preparing to step back into the fray against the hardest puncher in his division, GSP asked a telling question:

"What round is it?"

GSP has been a great champion as a fighter and as best as we can tell as a man.  IIRC he now holds the all time record for rounds in the UFC or something like that.  He showed true heart last night and deserves respect for whatever decision he makes now.

If I read for comprehension correctly, this key sentence from the article is incorrect:

" we can point to the one drug test she failed in 2011 (a 2016 failure was later reversed)" 

What I get is the referenced failure is for steroids and the reversal is for a diuretic.


Anyway, based on appearance alone (and her voice which is deeper than mine) it seems obvious to me that at some point Cyborg did heavy roids , , , or is transgender.

UFC 235

"Pedro Munhoz has a noggin on him, folks. If you want to just stand and bang without movement, then Munhoz is going to end up getting the better of the exchange, and that's exactly what happened to Garbrandt on Saturday."

I was very happy to see Pedro score this big win, though I hope the lesson he learns is not to play "Dueling Rockys"-- he was winning very technically until he got a bit carried away and caught one and decided to brawl.
