  1. Rollo the Cat says:

    In regards to Frank Shamrock in the IFL: It is all but confirmed. Kurt Otto did an interview tonight where he all but said Frank is getting canned. In fact, I think he slipped up at one point and said it outright.

  2. Ivan Trembow says:

    It is disgraceful that nothing is being done to Jameel McCline for his illegal steroid purchases (contrary to every other sport that has had athletes implicated), and it’s also very telling that McCline was able to beat the drug tests in major athletic commission states while he was receiving these banned substances.

  3. D. Capitated says:

    Its part of the Signature Pharmacy investigation, which has garnered tons and tons of lawsuits towards the DA investigating and the state of NY, and the release of names from it is of highly questionable legality.
