First off I'd like to say RIP to the victims of the deadliest spree shooting in American history, second I'd like to say I hope this doesn't impact me watching lightweights fight in glorious 480p on a Russian stream while I post "uhhhh nice tattoos IDIOT" in the game day thread.

This was funny.

I get that Dana White is pissed, I think its because he was lied to as to why they "couldn't" do the show.

I can't think of a much safer event than to do a live event, an arena filled with absolute hard lads, all ready to stand and bang.

The Lord of Lies angry someone else is using his gimmick.

I'm sure they will, but testing positive for Oral Turinabol is a real smoking gun on this one. It's an incredibly specific drug to test positive for and because it was the big thing that East Germany used for their state-sponsored doping programs it's very well know to the testing laboratories. There's no other reason it would be in a fighter's system apart from "they're a dirty cheat". There are no pharmaceutical manufacturers of it, so the only way to get it is underground from dodgy Chinese research chemical labs.

Tainted supplements bro.

Yo for the record I don't care that Bisping says fag and spits on people I just think he's got prior form for losing to old guys who know how to throw A Punch. Lost to Hendo twice, lost to Wanderlei, had to cheat against Rivera and Belcher. GSP is now an Old Guy who knows how to throw A Punch and also a masterful cheater in his own right so Bisping is gonna be scrapin' his bloomin' eyeballs offa the ol' pavement before the end of the bout cor blimey love a duck God save the Queen what what.

Too long, didn't read
