UFC 97 Results

  • Anderson Silva (champion) defeated Thales Leites via unanimous decision (49-46, 48-47, 50-46)      UFC Middleweight Championship.    This was a boring fight, they’re going to come up with somebody to give Silva a challenge. Lietes had nothing to concern Silva

Affliction going head to head with UFC 100?

Via The Baltimore Sun

There are a few puzzling stories in the news lately. The first is the rumor that Affliction may try to go head to head with UFC 100. I don’t know how I feel about this. Check that — it’s clearly a stupid decision.

While Affliction can compete with UFC pay-per-view replays and free, dumbed-down cards on Spike, Affliction cannot compete with UFC 100. I understand the UFC’s move to counter-program against Affliction, but it makes absolutely no sense the other way around.

Surely they can’t be dumb enough to go against one of the most stacked and anticipated PPV cards ever, Right?

Steroids: Ken Shamrock suspended

Via The Examiner

“The World’s Most Dangerous Man” may have landed a heavier blow to his own career than he did to Ross “Grizzly” Clifton in their fight last month. Yesterday, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) announced that Shamrock had failed a drug test administered prior to his February 13th bout with Clifton and has suspended him for one full year.
