    Wasn't sure if we already had a thread for this, couldn't see one in my extensive search of the first page. If we already have one feel free to merge this with it admins.

    Anyway, one of MMA's most promising HWs might not live to fight another day!

    Terrible news hope he pulls through, he is a really young promising Hw, Could have easily seen him fighting for the Bellarot Hw title. Sad to see a career maby ended like that.

    If Chandella got sacked for her soft porn vid, how did he get a job? Is it because he was open about it?

    I wonder how he will go down in the TUF house (pun sort of intended Smile )

    Was reading about this on BJPenn.com earlier. It's a big move for MMA having an openly gay fighter under contract with the UFC.

    First in the UFC anyway. Openly gay that is. Could be others that haven't made it public knowledge.

    He isn't gay apparently - just had money issues and made gay porn because it paid well

    He couldn't have done straight porn? If you involve yourself with another man's penis, and you're not in prison, there's some gay tendencies there.

    This is an issue that's always confused me. I'll never know how a straight man can be sexually active with another dude without being gay. Though this article claims hes a father of two, so it's strange.

    "Gay for Pay" is most certainly still gay no matter what way you look at it.


    I read that one of his previous opponents refused to fight him as he was high risk for Hepatitis and HIV and the fight was supposed to be santioned by some shitty commision and the fighter did not trust the prefight testing from commision.

    End of the day he did what he did wasn't Rupert Everett a Male rent boy before he became a well known actor. I suppose when you are in the situation he was In money wise as a student maybe he felt nothing was ever going to be made anything of it with him being from a small town in Nebraska probably felt It would be swept under the table.

    I read the Interview with MMAFighting and I'll be honest him and his manager were pretty open and honest about It which was quite refreshing considering what the subject was.

    I trained for 8 years with a guy who had a wife and four kids, announced he was gay and introduced us all to his boyfriend of many years. No-one had the first idea he was gay. Still train with him from time to time when he's back in the UK.

    UFC 146


    MAIN CARD
    • Champ Junior Dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem (for heavyweight title)
    •Frank Mir vs. Cain Velasquez
    •Roy Nelson vs. Antonio Silva
    •Shane Del Rosario vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
    •Mark Hunt vs. Stefan Struve


    Although JDS, Reem, Cain, Mir, Nelson and Bigfoot were given a nasty suprise when they had a suprise random drug test at the press conference yesterday. This is the first time NSAC screened multiple participants at a press conference so far ahead of time from the event.


    I guess Overeem is screwed then, but he might have been expecting it as he owes the commision 3 random tests after missing his drug test against Brock.

    But if this event does go ahead as planned, who would have ever thought UFC could put on a stacked PPV card with just HW's??

    I think that's the best card i've ever seen. Top 3 certainly. Hope it remains injury free.

    Both F4WOnline.com and PWInsider.com are reporting that Brock Lesnar is in negotiations with WWE to make a surprise appearance at Sunday's WrestleMania XXVIII pay-per-view event at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida. Negotiations are ongoing, but a source within the company says that there is a 50-50 chance that Lesnar will appear on the show.

    The source went on to state that WWE wants Lesnar to appear and is hoping that a deal can be finalized within the next 24 hours.

    and
    Regarding Brock Lesnar rumors for the weekend, the two sides have been talking in recent weeks, as was hinted in the Dwayne Johnson interview last week when Lesnar's name was brought up as a possible opponent for next year.

    Dana White confirmed that Lesnar is legally able to do WrestleMania.. He had been under a UFC contract but had retired from the promotion.. White was not aware if Lesnar was doing the show
