This has not been a good year for Kevin Randleman. It was just under 365 days ago that Kevin got busted for using animal or corpse urine for his Pride US fight. Since then, half his organs shut down, he got arrested for a laundry list of offenses, and now to top it off he just had the world’s nastiest case of staph.
Many other sites decided to show the picture of Kevin’s staph, but I’m not going to. God knows half the fighters out there probably have horrific STDs as well, and no one wants to see that shit either. A lot of people are also wondering “Is this the continuation of staph infection’s campaign to take over the world?” No, not likely.
Remember: Kevin Randleman has done so much crazy shit to his body that I’m amazed he’s still alive. I have no doubt he’s going to turn up dead in the next 5 years unless he stops fighting and moves into something less strenuous like accounting or bathroom attendant.
I’m sure I know Kevin’s attitude towards everything he did: “Sure, this might take 5 years off my life, but who cares about those years? 70-85 are bullshit years anyways.” Well, that’s not really how it works. Doing all the drugs and pushing your body that hard definitely shortens your life … but it also destroys the condition of your body so you’re essentially stuck crippled and pooing yourself at 45.
When rumors started swirling that David Terrell had pulled out of the UFc 78 card with an injury, I assumed people were just repeating a joke. After all, Terrell’s rep as injury prone is practically legend … but no way he’d have to pull out of a card AGAIN. Right? Right???
Wrong! Terrell is out yet again, this time with a serious ankle injury. For the newbs among us who don’t know David’s history of tooling himself during training, here’s a history care of MMAJunkie:
The 29-year-old Terrell, a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Cesar Gracie, pulled out of a UFC 62 fight with a sinus infection, a UFC 66 fight with an elbow injury, and now a UFC 78 fight because of an ankle injury. It’s been 19 months since Terrell (6-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) last fought professionally.
This is shitty news for the UFC, who were banking on Terrell to breath some life back into their middleweight division. He was once thought to be the next big thing, but at this point I’ll be amazed if the UFC would trusts him to attend a show without getting in a 10 car pile up on the way. The guy’s either got a voodoo curse on him or the world’s most retarded training partners. No word on if Sokoudjou was involved.
Hey everyone, it’s Saturday! And you know what that means, right? That’s right! We here at Fightlinker fuck off and get drunk, high, and fondle women of questionable virtue. This leaves you all to your own devices, and I can only hope you won’t try cutting yourselves for attention while we’re out.
But we aren’t all evil. The weekend is also when we repost the little parody ads we stick into the Low Blow every show. The last episode’s bits are
Just a quick update … I’m out prepping for the most epic Halloween party in the history of the universe, so I won’t be covering the IFL show. We’ll be checking it out tomorrow night so expect an update about it then.
Seven tests totaling $3,000 were conducted on supplements Sherk took before his bout against Hermes Franca (Pictures). One such product was the Xyience-branded “Xyience Xtreme Joint Formula.” Five capsules were analyzed according to a report supplied by Don H. Catlin, M.D., president and CEO of Anti-Doping Research, Inc.
“No anabolic steroids were detected in four of the capsules,” Catlin wrote. “In one capsule 1-androstendione was identified.”
It’ll be interesting to see if this grows legs and causes Xyience any problems. God knows, all those stories about Xyience fucking over fighters for sponsorship money haven’t seemed to affect anything.
