What is to become of James Irvin. Even though he lost to Anderson Silva he is a good fighter with great knock out power. I think he could be reaally good if he was more focused. Anybody know what is up with James Irvin? Is he still with the UFC?

as far as i know, he is still with the UFC, there hasnt been a word out about him being let go by the UFC.

I dont think his level of skill is not enough to compete with the top tier of the division, I think they'll feed him to new talent, or to an already established fighter thats coming off a loss, maybe a matt hammill

How long is he suspended for? 6 months or a year?

Dont remember ever hearing for how long he actually was being suspended, but i dont remember mmaweekly saying that nevada usually gave anywhere from 8 to 9 month suspension for the type of drug he tested positive to.

The last word on him was Irvin tested positive for methadone and oxymorphone, after his fight with Anderson Silva. There hasn't been anything since. But those are two very strong drugs that you don't take for your basic pain. Those are the kind of drugs given to people with very bad chronic pain.

When Irvine returns he should get a rematch with Silva. Thiago won because of an injury. Irvine can come back after his suspension and KO Thiago after Thiago TKOs Machida......

They're also heavy pain-killers.

Can you blame him? He knew he'd need them.
