When you think of Chael Sonnen you think of American gangster, largest arms in the hardened streets of West Lind, Oregon, and possibly PED’s. Probably PED’s. It’s PED’s isn’t it.

The Ultimate Fighter 8 – Episode 8 Re-Cap

By Denny “The Mad One” Hodge

We are starting to get down to business now with the numbers being narrowed down, and the semi’s starting to shape up.  This episode is supposed to showcase a lightweight that is being compared to GSP.  It looks like we may be in for a treat with some good action in the LW match up tonight.

After the quick re-cap from the LHW match up last week, we shift to the house for team Nogueira enjoying Tom Lawlor’s fruit tray…again.  It seems they do this almost every day to Tom, and he is not exactly happy about it.

PRO MMA Scouting Report

Scouting out the world of Professional Mixed Martial Arts:

  • Kimbo Slice is in a new Nike commercial working with San Diego Chargers running back, LaDainian Tomlinson, doing some straight up gangsta training.
  • If you are part of the Elite XC stable of fighters one of your goals is probably to fight on CBS. Debi Purcell fought on Showtime’s ShoXC card last Friday but will they let her on prime time with her own unique brand of “tramp stamp?”
  • Would you like to see the epitome of a “keyboard warrior” who has no clue what it takes to get in a cage and stand toe to toe with the baddest men on the planet?  Most of us have no idea what that is like.  And that is exactly the reason most of us don’t write open letters to professional fighters telling them how to do their job, especially a top-tier fighter like Kenny Florian.   This dude has some real nerve.
  • Gracie Mag has a new interview with Rogerio Minotouro Nogueira. He seems to be happy at his new home with Affliction. He talks about his recent fight with Dewees, what it’s like for the Nogueira brothers in America, and the future of MMA.
  • Brock Lesnar has a question and answer session with New York Times blog readers. They touch on a myriad of topics including steroids and gay UFC fighters.
