Steroid Bust of the Day: Brian Ortega (?) Tests Positive for Drostanolone Following UFC on FOX 12 Win Over Mike de la Torre

(What shame you have brought upon your family's great name, Brian.) The Great Steroid Inquisition of 2014 rolls on, Nation, as undefeated featherweight Brian "T-City" (eesh) Ortega has just become the latest UFC fighter to fail a drug test for anabolic steroids, testing positive for Drostanolone following his UFC on FOX 12 victory over Mike de la Torre. His failed test comes less than a month after Kevin Casey was busted for the same drug (along with Robert Drysdale, who was busted for elevated testosterone again) and less than one week after Mike King was similarly caught red-handed. After compiling an 8-0 record on the RITC and RFA circuit, Ortega was called up to the big leagues to face de la Torre in his UFC debut. He submitted Torre via rear-naked choke within in under two minutes. If you ask me, this whole thing is a crock of bullsh*t. We all know that steroids don't matter in Jiu-Jitsu; Ralek Gracie has already proven this, as has Chael Sonnen. Steroids just make you get tired quicker, bro, and your recovery time just goes, like... As a result of the failed test, Ortega's victory over de la Torre has been changed to a no-contest. He has also been fined $2,500 and suspended for nine months. My guess is he won't be receiving a call from the UFC when those nine months are up. Sucks, bro. -J. Jones

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira To Retire! In 2015!

(via Nog's Instagram) There was a time, not too long ago, when Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was considered indestructible. Beatable maybe, but finishable? Please. What was Fedor or Cro Cop or Werdum going to do to Big Nog that a Mac truck hadn't already done? You could drop an anvil on this guy's face, an anvil I tells ya, and his jaw would split the sumbitch in half like a coconut. Lately, however, Nogueira has looked something less than invincible in the octagon. He's looked slow, tired, vulnerable. That he's been finished in all five of his past losses (alongside which he has earned just three wins) further points to his ever-deteriorating skillset, with his most recent knockout loss to Roy Nelson being a particularly tough pill to swallow. Or even look at. Yet he forges ahead, despite near constant protests by fans, media members, and most likely his family to call it quits. I know, you've heard this all before -- hell, I've probably lamented Nog's stubbornness a couple dozen times by now. But today brings good news, Potato Nation! In an interview with Ag.Fight (via MMAFighting), "Minotauro" finally discussed his retirement! Hallelujer!! And the best news is...it's not happening as soon it should, actually...

TIL That War Machine Once Abandoned Ken Shamrock’s 17 Year Old Daughter in Mexico [VIDEO]

Leave it to Ken Shamrock to add a whole 'nother chapter to the increasingly morbid saga that is the life of Jon "War Machine" Koppenhaver. Koppenhaver, who was captured by US Marshals last week while hiding out in Simi Valley, California, has something of a history of violence and general sketchiness when it comes to women, you see. He's been arrested what feels like a dozen times now for starting bar brawls, crashing a porn star's birthday party (with his fists), and most recently, brutalizing girlfriend Christy Mack in particularly heinous fashion. He will more than likely assault a fellow inmate and/or have sex with deli meat within the following weeks, and is overall just a terrible, terrible human being who deserves none of our sympathy. But what I (and therefore you Taters) have been wondering in these troubling times is: What does Ken Shamrock have to say about all this? Well, strap in brothers and sisters, because shit's about to get weird...

Benson Henderson Set For Seventh Straight UFC Main Event

Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson isn’t growing out his hair until he loses a fight. Or until he wins the belt back. Instead, it’s one person who is controlling how long “Smooth’s” locks get. “It can’t be cut for a little while,” said Henderson, during a recent interview on UFC Tonight. “The wife doesn’t […]

CagePotato Ban: Offering to Give Your Purse to Your Opponent If __ Happens Before __

(via Combat Lifestyle) By Jared Jones If you're like me, you often like to spice up the average night of fights by placing a few bets. In an era where Tony Ferguson vs. Danny Castillo is deemed worthy of a PPV co-main event, a good old fashioned wager is sometimes necessary to excite an increasingly nihilistic MMA fan such as yourself. First it starts off as a few dollars here and there against your less-informed friends, most of whom you tricked into betting on the clearly inferior fighter ("Yeah, Sinosic is pretty good. I mean, just check out his nickname!"), but next thing you know, you're gripping the edges of your TV and praying that Stephan Bonnar makes it to the second round against Anderson Silva so your pelvis won't be broken by Johnny Numbers and that mook Alonzo. That got oddly autobiographical for a second there, but the point is, gambling is a serious commitment that has serious consequences. Placing bets you don't actually plan to follow through with is not only an insult to true gamblers worldwide, but a general sign of male deficiency and cowardice. It's all but taking a piss in the face of Kenny Rogers, is what it is. The only reason I bring it up is because Luke Rockhold recently made one such proposal to Michael Bisping, offering to bet his entire purse on the fact that he could finish "The Count" inside of one round.
“I’ve got a wager. Bisping is grossly overpaid, comparably to where we are. So, I bet Michael Bisping, if I don’t finish you in the first round, you can have my purse. But if I do finish you in the first round, you give me your purse. So if I don’t finish you in the first round, whether I beat you in a decision or what, you get both of our purses. But if I do finish you in the first round, we switch purses, and I get yours.
Of course, Rockhold's wager is heavily dependent on whether or not Bisping emerges victorious from his fight with Cung Le this weekend, which the bookies seem to think he will. But that's beside the point, which is that Rockhold should not be making such ridiculous and empty promises in the first place.

Daniel Cormier Breaking Future Fight News?

Daniel Cormier broke some insider news himself on “UFC Tonight” Wednesday evening, reporting that his American Kickboxing Academy teammate Luke Rockhold might have a fight lined up. Rockhold, a former Strikeforce champion, is in discussion to face Lyoto Machida, possibly at UFC on FOX 13 in December. That card was announced, but no fights have […]

Video of the Day: Rogan and Goldberg Commentate EA UFC Glitches, Part 2!

(Props: TommyToeHold) After racking up over a million views with the first installment, TommyToeHold is back with another hysterical batch of EA Sports UFC glitches, as commentated by (fake) Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg. Much respect to Tommy for putting out a sequel that's just as funny as the original. My four favorite lines, taken completely out of context: "Very Grudge-like, Joe." "Reminds me of a young Babalu." "No he doesn't, Mike." "Mike, there's a bigfoot, he's being strangled, Mike." "I have to think this is going the distance, aaaand he's dead."

Ferguson, MO Native Tyron Woodley Opens Up About Mayhem in Hometown, Says It’s “Like Iraq”

(Photo via Getty.) It has been nearly two weeks since Michael Brown was shot dead by Ferguson, Missouri police, and the general public still knows next to nothing about the circumstances surrounding his death. No police report has been released, journalists have been detained, and clashes between police and protesters continue to erupt as the eyes of the world look on. Making things all the worse is the fact that some members of the community, whether out of outrage or plain selfishness, have taken to looting and destroying local stores in a misguided response to the overbearing incompetence being displayed by their police force. The chaos in Missouri has weighed especially heavy on welterweight contender Tyron Woodley, a Ferguson native who has been forced to watch the destruction of his hometown from afar while preparing for his co-main event matchup against Dong Hyun Kim at this weekend's Fight Night 48: Bisping vs. Le card in Macau. In an attempt to keep the distractions at a minimum, Woodley's coach has banned him from accessing social media of any kind. Still, the turmoil is all too real for Woodley, who compared Ferguson to Iraq when speaking with FoxSports:
Woodley was in town last week and drove through his neighborhood one morning after an ugly night of unrest. He couldn't believe what he saw: auto-parts stores, Walmarts, meat markets and beauty salons, all torn apart by looting. "If I put this video on the Internet, you wouldn't even believe it," Woodley said. "It's so horrible. "It's almost like they're at war. It's like Iraq. ... The best thing I can do from this far away is support the positive. There's nothing wrong with protesting, to peacefully assemble, but also be sure it's peaceful."

Confidence Not Lacking For Michael Bisping

Michael Bisping isn’t afraid to say exactly what he feels. As “The Count” prepares to meet Cung Le this Saturday from China at UFC Fight Night 48, he knows that nothing short of a win will be enough. After returning from an eye injury that left him sidelined for a year, Bisping (24-6) lost to […]

Cung Le and Michael Bisping to Undergo Enhanced Drug Testing; Le Defends His Suspiciously Jacked Physique

(Cung Le in November 2011, and Cung Le in August 2014. The only thing that hasn't changed is his underwear.) Over the weekend, UFC middleweight Cung Le posted a photo of himself flexing after an intense workout — and immediately raised the suspicions of armchair endocrinologists around the globe. Despite his athletic gifts, Le hasn't always been the leanest or most muscular fighter out there; in fact, he's looked rather soft at times, relatively speaking. But now, at the age of 42, he's showing up looking this jacked? In a sport where aging veterans are getting popped for PEDs left and right, MMA fans were understandably dubious. In an apparent response to the accusations being flung at Le, the UFC has announced that Cung Le and his opponent Michael Bisping will undergo enhanced drug testing for their UFC Fight Night 48 headlining bout this Saturday in Macau. The testing will be performed at the UFC's expense, and will include blood-testing, which would theoretically identify non-steroid PEDs like human growth hormone (HGH) and recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO). Of course, we probably won't get the results of these tests until weeks after the fact, which does absolutely nothing to prevent potential cheaters from competing. (I kind of agree with Mark Bocek here; if all these drug tests are timed so that big fights still get to proceed as scheduled, it doesn't reflect well on the UFC's priorities, or how serious they are about eradicating the PED epidemic.) But it might be a moot point in this case, because Cung Le doesn't plan on failing a drug test anytime soon...

Add GSP To List Of Fighters Doing Ice Bucket Challenge

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre showed that his knees are getting stronger after surgery, taking part in the ever-growing “Ice Bucket Challenge” for ALS recently. GSP, who tore his ACL earlier this year and had surgery, remains away from MMA and the UFC since announcing his self-imposed “retirement.” Unlike many who do the challenge, […]

UFC 178 Lineup Finalized, Dominick Cruz vs. Takeya Mizugaki Gets Shafted to Prelims

(He's been sulking like that all day. / Photo via Sherdog) The bout-order of the bottom-heavy UFC 178: Johnson vs. Cariaso PPV card (September 27th, Las Vegas) has been released, and as has become a recent tradition, one of the better fights has been dumped onto the FOX Sports 1 prelims in order to pump up the cable ratings. This time, it's former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz's match against top contender Takeya Mizugaki. Not exactly a hero's welcome for The Dominator, who has been out of action for nearly three years. Cruz vs. Mizugaki will serve as the "Prelims Main Event" [*Sweet Dee gagging sound*], while Cat Zingano vs. Amanda Nunes kicks off the PPV, and Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier sits pretty in the #3 spot (aka, "The Co-Co-Main Event," or, "The Main Event of the First Three Fights on the Card"). Meanwhile, Demetrious Johnson vs. Chris Cariaso is still the actual main event, and has to directly follow Eddie Alvarez vs. Donald Cerrone, as weary fans file out to beat traffic. All in all, the card is certainly worth your money, although it might be hard convincing casual fans of that. ("Wait...Anthony Johnson is fighting *who*? Does this Chris Carano guy trane with the Gracies?") The full UFC 178 lineup is below...

Hot Potato: 21 Photos of Sexy Tattooed M-1 Global Ring Girl Anzhelika Anderson

All praises be to the UG for uncovering these photos of Anzhelika Anderson, a Russian "tattoo model" who occasionally carries cards for M-1 Global. I know next to nothing about Ms. Anderson's interests, hobbies, or turn-ons and have been able to dig up even less, but if I were to take a guess, I'd say: tattoos, getting tattoos, and men with tattoos. I hope you are all ok with my blatant stereotyping. Check out 20 more of our favorite photos of Anzhelika in the gallery after the jump, then head over to her Instagram page for many, many more.
