    In other news, Daiki Kameda was a total arse in his press conference today. It was the same old Daiki… Showing no remorse, a passive aggressive grin plastered all over his face… The guy was wearing a fur coat, not exactly the humble, reborn fighter the nation was hoping for.

  2. JP says:

    I was hoing Antnio Silva would join the UFC..dang that ShoTime

  3. Jim Allcorn says:

    I watched Sherk’s appearance on INSIDE MMA last night with great interest & I’m sorry, but he just was not at all convincing with his claims of innocence. It likely won’t matter in theleast as far as what goes down this coming week at his hearing, but he just looked guilty to me.

    Now, I’m far from one of his biggest fans, but neither am I a “hater” by any means. I’m neutral on the guy. So, I did my best to look at the show last night from that perspective & Sherk was a disaster IMO. He looked uptight, ill at ease & didn’t appear to look anyone on the set in the eyes when they addressed him.

    Plus there was no sense of outrage at all. That’s always something that I look for in the supposedly wrongly accused & when I fail to see it, my instincts regarding their guilt are rarely, if ever, wrong ( ol’ OJ’s “innocence” aside ) & Sherk’s lack of outrage at having erroneously tested “hot”, his subsequent suspension & the loss of his ability to make a living for X amount of time was non-existent last night.

  4. We here at Fightlinker celebrate kwanzaa. And even though I think sherk is gonna be found guilty, I’m actually of the opinion that he took the stuff unknowingly in one of the 5000 supplements he takes. Sucks to be him, but it’s not like tainted supplements aren’t a known issue to most atheletes

  5. I never “got” Taktarov. Is there anyone else who thinks he was just massively overplayed?
