Schaub: Given penalties, PED use makes sense
Schaub compellingly made the case that given the current penalties for PED use, it makes sense to use them. "Listen, I would love to hear an argument for why I shouldn't do steroids," he said. "Give me one. Let's say I take steroids and test positive. Say I'm a young kid [getting to the UFC] and I ask my dad, 'Dad, why shouldn't I take steroids?' Can I say, 'Well, you'll never be world champ.' That's not true. Anderson Silva's world champ. 'Well, you'll never fight for a title.' That's not true.

Nick Diaz on first-round antics against Anderson Silva: 'He stayed the hell away from me'
Anderson Silva might have won the fight, but Nick Diaz definitely dominated the troll game. Silva has been known throughout his career for clowning his opponents, dropping his hands and begging his foes to hit him in the mouth. It's what got Silva caught when he lost the UFC middleweight title to Chris Weidman at UFC 162 in July 2013. However, Diaz definitely out-taunted the master Saturday night in Silva's unanimous decision victory at UFC 183 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena...

Nick Diaz, MIA for Fight Week Activities thus far
The UFC 183 open workouts are beind held today in Las Vegas. You won't be seeing Nick Diaz take part, because he's not even in Las Vegas yet. He was at the airport, checked his bags, then decided not to get on the plane? His bags are in Vegas, he is not? WHhhaaaaat?

“I did it to myself again. I made a fight with Nick Diaz, a big main event fight. I did it to myself. So I can't sit here and cry about Nick Diaz. It's Nick being Nick.” -Dana Freaking White
DDuddou.... Whhaaaat?

Dave Herman's Wife Film's Tasering Incident and Felony Charges made up on the fly
Just another instance of cops overstepping their boundaries and not really enforcing any laws. Wasn't a chase or a violent drunk Herman Charges seem like BS. Just goes to show how an article about multiple felonies, resisting, and endangering a child can really be just spun from the real story where the cops appeared dumbfounded and unable to answer basic questions so they can understand what is going on with whatever civilian they have encountered. Why find out what is going on when you can just taze people and then charge them a misdemeanor that is literally for `making them have to use their tazer` apparently. Now I wish he had fought some cops, instead we just have cops abusing power. What else is new. If that's the actions that consist of what this country considers a multiple felony situation we might as well all go to prison for the rest of our lives now. EDIT: Didn't think until I clicked that this should probably go in the UFC forum not the news forum... so mods, feel free to move it if that's where it should be posted.

In a recent profile on AXS.com by Eric Holden titled "Michele Gutierrez feeling long-term effects of MMA fighting" the fighter talks about health issues she is having that could be traced to head trauma from combat sports.

Tito Ortiz claims UFC 180 did 80K PPV buys, and he fought Bonnar with one eye
Asked for his reaction to the ratings to Bellator 131, Tito Ortiz couldn’t help but have a little fun. “Ah, that’s it? Jeez,” Ortiz (18-11-1 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) joked about the fight card he headlined opposite Stephan Bonnar (15-9 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) that drew a peak viewership of 2.2 million for their fight...

Robin Black give personal insight to 'Gossip MMA Media' and how they are ruining the sport
As I watch the gossip monger hold his microphone in front of a famous entertainer while hanging on every word in "anticipation" of his UFC debut (despite the fact that the famous entertainer has never sparred), I wonder how we got here. Mixed Martial Arts is such a beautiful sport. It pits the greatest athletes against each other in poetic mortal combat. It is the greatest sport on planet Earth. It is simple yet complex, violent yet elegant, terrifying yet inspiring. How did we get to the point that spectacle is more important than this incredible sport and art? I honestly blame the "journalists".

After scoring deal he couldn’t refuse, Nick Diaz wonders why he accepted fights against ‘mediocre level opponents’
When Nick Diaz retired in March 2013 fresh from dropping a lopsided unanimous decision to then-UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, he told reporters that the only fights to could coax him back into the cage would be a rematch against the Canadian or a superfight against Anderson Silva. At the time, Diaz's requests were largely scoffed at. This was a guy who'd lost two straight outings; he wasn't exactly in the position to barter for another big opportunity...

Joe Lauzon: Injuries Suck
I have been training for close to 15 years… and I have dealt with a LOT of injuries. I think as your knowledge of the sport grows as a coach and competitor, so does your knowledge grow of dealing with and training around injuries. At this point in my life, its not IS something going to hurt today but WHAT is going to hurt the most and how am I going to train around it.
