BJ Penn Is Pretty Sure That Georges St. Pierre Uses Steroids
His greasing crusade never amounted to much, but UFC lightweight champ BJ Penn won't rest until arch-rival Georges St. Pierre is busted for something. In a new interview with Yahoo! Sports, the Prodigy launched yet another explosive accusation: "It’s just my opinion that he uses steroids. That’s it...I can’t hand you any proof, but that’s my opinion...In my opinion, he doesn’t play by the rules when it comes to steroids and growth hormones and that stuff. Look at him. He’s the worst. He looks like that every day. That’s cheating. There is a reason why there are rules against using steroids. The rest of us, we get fat, then we train and get skinny and the cycle goes over and over again. He looks the same way all the time. Come on.” Allow us to float an alternate theory: GSP is bigger and stronger than BJ genetically, and works out all year long, and Penn is just saying these things to bait St. Pierre into a third fight that nobody wants to see except Penn himself. I mean, I can't hand you any proof on this, but it's my opinion.

BOWLES: 'Miguel Torres has never faced anyone like me’
How a fighter as talented and explosive as WEC bantamweight Brian Bowles has gotten used to being the underdog during his career in the WEC is beyond me, but as this undefeated finishing machine told FiveOuncesOfPain.com in the days leading up to the biggest fight of his 29 years on this earth, it’s a role he relishes.

The Correct Way to Use Fedor Emelianenko in Strikeforce
I've slowly come to terms with the fact that I won't be watching Fedor fight in the UFC any time soon. So now what is bothering me most is the idea that Strikeforce wants to build up to a Fedor/Overeem pay-per-view fight. While I openly admit that Overeem is probably the toughest fight for Fedor on the Strikeforce roster I just think there is a better way to build to a PPV event that gets Fedor and his opponent some drawing power and hopefully makes for a must see event. The fight they should be building to is Fedor vs. Brett Rogers. Allow me to play fantasy matchmaker for a few minutes here:

BJ Penn's Scorched Earth Tactics
BJ Penn may claim to be ready for his fight this weekend, but a new Kevin Iole piece suggests Georges St. Pierre is still the main thing on his mind: Penn said he believes St. Pierre uses steroids, though he concedes he has no proof. St. Pierre is arguably the sport’s most popular fighter and Penn knows that making such allegations isn’t going to win him any friends.

Finally Healthy, Amir Sadollah Looks to Re-Start Career at UFC 101
PHILADELPHIA – It's been over a year since Amir Sadollah beat CB Dollaway to capture The Ultimate Fighter's season seven championship and earn a UFC contract. But since then the world's most popular 1-0 fighter has been snakebit, suffering back-to-back setbacks during two separate training camps that forced him to pull out of scheduled bouts.

Randy Couture on UFC 101: Forrest Griffin Will Press Anderson Silva
UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has, in his last two fights, transformed before our eyes from a ferocious finisher to a guy who tries to do just enough to win. That has caused fans to heap scorn on Silva, and as a result, the UFC matched him up with Forrest Griffin at UFC 101, reasoning that Silva couldn't get away with the passive approach against Griffin.

Relaxed Anderson Silva Says 'I Guarantee You Someone's Going to Fall'
PHILADELPHIA - Anderson Silva walked into his scheduled workout 30 minutes late, but he had a handshake for everyone in the room and a smile on his face. Wearing an adidas warm-up suit in his standard black-and-yellow colors, Silva showed no signs of being a man under fire.

As the weeks have dwindled to days, and the days narrow down to hours, Kenny Florian is nothing, if not appreciative of the position he is in. He steps into the Octagon on Saturday night challenging for UFC lightweight gold for the second time in his career. Not bad for a guy that entered the promotion via The Ultimate Fighter, losing to Diego Sanchez in the finale... as a middleweight, no less. “To me, it’s a dream come true to fight for the belt and go out there and do what I love doing,” Florian told MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday.

Frank Mir: "If I Had to Pick a Guy to Beat Anderson Silva, I’d Pick Forrest Griffin"
"The one thing that maybe could be a wrench in (Anderson's) machine and his style, is that he is so great of a counter fighter. He’s so skilled with these movements. If I could pick a guy that could beat him, it’s a guy that could rough him up. Okay, fight ugly, fight mean, come forward. Are you gonna take a shot or two?"

Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin at UFC 101 a prime example of UFC's appeal
Middleweight champion Anderson Silva has won all nine of his fights in the UFC, the first seven either by spectacular strikes or submission. It made him arguably the most thrilling star in mixed martial arts. His last two bouts, however, were a bit dull – Silva displaying a lack of aggression against opponents who weren't all that eager to mix it up. UFC president Dana White echoed most fans in expressing his frustration: Caution is not becoming in cage fighting.

Is the UFC Truly Dominant? A Brief Examination of the Boxing vs. MMA Debate
I've always been loudly outspoken in my feelings that there is no "war" between boxing and MMA. Since I was old enough to remember I have been a boxing fan. In fact, I got my start at SB Nation as a writer at BadLeftHook. And I've always been clear that I feel the constant MMA chorus of "boxing is dead" is very much overstated. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to approach the "boxing is healthy" argument and Paul Magno at EastSideBoxing very much takes the wrong approach with statements such as:

Ricardo Almeida Talks Kendall Grove Fight, Future Move to Welterweight
Ricardo Almeida's desire to compete on the UFC 101 card in Philadelphia was so much so that he postponed immediate plans for a welterweight run. "To be honest I would have fought at 205 to fight in Philly," Almeida said. "I really wanted the people who support me on a daily basis to have the chance to watch me fight live and be a part of it."
