Teen battling brain cancer puts UFC atop bucket list
On Tuesday, ABC News published a story about Jake Stoneking, a 19-year-old battling medulloblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer. The story was about the bucket list Stoneking put together after he found out last month that his cancer, which stretches from his brain to the bottom of his spinal cord, was back and this time incurable. According to his father, Todd Stoneking, doctors initially told them he has three months to live, but there's a chance two experimental chemotherapy drugs could extend his time several months...

Johny Hendricks Interview – UFC 171, Call of Duty and TRT
The #1 ranked UFC welterweight Johny Hendricks recently took some time to talk with PunchDrunkGamer about his upcoming fight at UFC 171 against Robbie Lawler, the recent ban on TRT, medical marijuana, Call of Duty and more. Enjoy!

PDG: When they were letting fighters use TRT, the commissions were still treating medical marijuana and recreational use of marijuana like a performance enhancing drug (PED). What is your opinion on that and should fighters be able to use medical marijuana? Johny Hendricks: Here is the thing, marijuana is still illegal in how many states, 50 out of 52! So your sitting there and knowing that it is illegal basically everywhere and so I look at that situation a little bit differently. I don’t know all of the facts about it but I do know that for one thing it can help you stay relaxed and calm. So that could give a fighter an edge going into a fight because if you were stressed, you could smoke a little bit, calm down and potentially give you an advantage going into the Octagon because you could have the mindset of “well I am not to worried about this fight”. Whereas your opponent could be really stressed out and it could cause him to make a mistake that costs him the fight. That brings us back to the TRT issue, what does it do to your body? Does it make 18 again?

Ovince St Preux Shoots on UFC 171, Nikita Krylov and MMA Current Events

PDG: Onto some recent events in MMA. Gilbert Melendez got a new deal after tempting free agency. During that whole ordeal Bellator got a little attention out of it because they were the next option for him. How much do you think Bellator is actually competition to the UFC? OSP: As of right now, not really. They do have a lot of good fighters. But as of right now, no. There are always going to be other organizations out there. The thing is, if Bellator was to sign Gilbert then the 155 weight class would have been stacked. But at the same time, the UFC knows how to make good business decisions. That is why every year they are the number one organization in the world. I am blessed to be fighting for them too. At the end of the day, that is why they have to do what they do. PDG: Speaking of other recent events, what are your thoughts on the banning of TRT? OSP: Honestly, with TRT and stuff, I don’t get in to it. I am training myself to be the best that I can. I just leave that alone. I don’t need it in my system, I don’t need anything like that. They say I can’t take it, so I don’t take it. That is point blank. If it is bad and they say it is so, then it is bad. There are plenty of supplements out there that always come out that are supposed to be the next best thing. Everybody says, “Ok, I am using it.” The next couple of months down the road, it gets banned. Every single year there is a new supplement that is introduced and then banned. This is going to continue to happen within sports. But at the same time, I know what to take and what not to take.
