Carwin hurt knee should still be ready for December fight with Big Country
You are probably right like most of the time lol
'TUF 16' coaches Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson randomly tested by NSAC
I'm all for random tests, but I would like it if fighters didn't have any sort of warning. Just have officials show up randomly and test them on the spot.The Nevada State Athletic Commission reportedly has selected Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson for out-of-competition testing in advance of their fight at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.
MMAWeekly.com first reported the impending test, which was subsequently confirmed to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) by the fighters' representatives.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission declined comment on the matter.
Carwin manager Genet said the commission notified Carwin today of several potential testing locations in the Denver area and gave the fighter a "short timeframe" to attend one. The fighter consented.
Nelson would presumably take the test in his hometown of Las Vegas, though the details of it could not be confirmed.
The heavyweights and opposing coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter 16" have recently made headlines over possible additional drug testing for their fight, which headlines the Dec. 15 event at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and airs on FX and FUEL TV.
Through rep Mike Kogan, Nelson invited Carwin to participate in out-of competition testing with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA), imploring the opposing coach to set an example for the sport.
In an interview with MMAjunkie.com, Genet said he wasn't opposed to additional testing but questioned VADA's credibility after it posted a defamatory story on its website (VADA said it had no knowledge of the story's author and said an intern who posted the content was fired).
Genet said he reached out today to Nelson's camp to discuss additional options for out-of-competition testing.
Now, it appears the process has found them. The NSAC reinstated the program late last year after budget problems shelved it in fiscal year 2010-2011.
Most famously, Alistair Overeem failed a random test in advance of his scheduled fight with Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146, which forced the UFC to scratch him and install Frank Mir.
Carwin is out:
That's too bad, I was looking forward to this fight. Maybe Nelson can fight Cormier now...Originally Posted by Dana White

Watching Ricci in the UFC5 video makes me think they guy gives off a "American Psycho" (movie) type vibe. Not that he is literally American or crazy. He has more power than you would think looking at him.
I was surprised by the Manley/Colton fight. I thought Manley would try for a bunch more submissions. If he fought the first two rounds like the third round he may have been in the finale.
I'm always happy to discuss anything from hoops, to hockey, to reality TV with anyone that is polite no matter what their opinion. With that said if you are disrespectful or dishonest poster please do not expect a reply.
This season sucked. Iif dana thinks he can keep processing crap like this tuf will be over forever soon.
if u like mixed martial arts check out the psd mma forum
I picked Magny to win the whole show, just based off his fight to get in. He's talented, but Ricci proved to be too much.
I expect Ricci to win very easily in the finale.
