    ...another unintentionally hilarious post from our favorite pubescent brit. Saying Munoz's hands are only slighty heavier than sonnen's is like saying you are only slightly dumber than the average poster.

    You'd be smarter to point out that Munoz has an even greater reach disadvantage to overcome than sonnen did, so Bisping could use his reach even more effectively...but if Mark managed to land any of the 15-or-so shots to the head that sonnen landed against Bisping, it's: good night, Mike.

    As much as I like it dirty, I have to give you the exclusive scoop. I'm off the card. I failed the drug test.

    See, I had a nipple ring infection that I got a shot for, from this doctor that I met in a strip club, he had an office in an upstairs hallway made out of cardboard boxes. So I gave him a handful of singles and he gives me a bump, and next thing I know I'm testing at 63:1. It sucks. I don't understand it. He had great references from both the DJ and Shayna, the matinee special girl.

    It's ok, though; because my actual testosterone levels came in normal.

    Absolutely the first thing I thought of.

    He pays us in chips and vinegar, and bootleg copies of the British version of Coupling. That blonde girl is haw-ott!

    No, we don't. I don't, and I don't think any of us do.

    But for the record, I had Bisping at 9.

    Looking At CSAC Released Documents, UFC Fighter Chael Sonnen Steroid Suspension Should Be Upheld - Watch Kalib Run

    The CSAC doesn't bust people on having high T/E ratio's, that is just a warning sign that signals them to take more tests. It just so happens that when someone's T/E ratio is that out of wack, they ALWAYS test positive for something else, because it's just not possible for someone to have a 16:1 T/E ratio naturally.
    I never said he didn't have synthetic testosterone in his system. His ratio was 16:1. But you realize that there is a difference between ratios and actual levels right? His actual range of testosterone was never found to be above normal levels.

    Sonnen

    Because TRT involves a synthetic form of testosterone administered manually, it elevates the body’s ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone, which, in Sonnen’s case, triggered a positive result for performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). His test ratio was 16.9:1, where the normal threshold ratio is 4:1. However, the CSAC did cite that, while Sonnen’s test results of the ratio itself were high, his actual range of testosterone was within the normal levels for adult males.
    Did he get clearance from the commission to be on TRT in the first fight? No. Did he lie about it? Most likely.
    Did they find his actual testosterone levels to be higher than allowed? No.
    Will he be allowed to be on TRT for the rematch? Yes.
    Will he have the same levels as before? Yes.

    P.S. - When you call "bullshit" on someone, make sure you don't look like an idiot first...

    Urrrgh that was a multi quote mess.

    I'd say it was closer to 2 top 10 MW's really, as the other one was merely keeping somebody else's seat warm.

    Sonnen ran through Brian Stann yes, but pretty much in the same way I (and A LOT of people) was expecting him to run through Bisping. I didn't expect Stann to offer so little resistance in the TDD department, and submission defence, which lets face it, was non existent. Sonnen was a horrible match up for Stann though. Best wrestler in the MW division against one of the best strikers? So maybe we shouldn't have been so surprised. Sonnen showed up how one dimensional Stann is, and how he wasn't really top 10 calibre at all with such a gaping area of skill lacking in his arsenal.

    He did the best against any man has done against Silva, I never questioned that, but he was fighting with crazy high T/E levels as he did what he did to Stann over nearly 5 complete rounds.

    Your answer to how Sonnen would do agaisnt Belfort and Munoz wasn't worth posting that image for.

    I would love to see how Sonnen deals with Belforts speed on the feet and avoiding his punches. I think his decision to do TUF was a big mistake, as fighting Wandy was a potentially huge step down in rankings. I'm annoyed he's busted up from training and will be outta action for so long, but potentially he could fight Bisping, Stann or Munoz in future fights once they are all healed. Not sure what Okami is doing either but surely he should have a fight coming up soon.

    Maybe Belfort is ranked a little too high in the top 10. He is a force to be reckoned with at LHW and MW as his skillset is broad and his striking elite. He's actually beaten 2 middle weights, but of course one was Rumble Johnson.

    Chael beat 3 top 10 MW's. Bisping hasn't sniffed a win against a top 10 opponent...ever. So he didn't get ran through and that's his career highlight? Umm congrats?

    What fight is that? The Anderson fight? So he wasn't ferocious we he AB-SO-FUCKING-LOOTELY tooled Brian Stann, a top 10 MW, and sub'd him? Yeah definitely not ferocious.

    Because he actually beats top 10 guys. You know, the thing Bisping doesn't do.

    Because he beats top 10 MW's. Unless of course Bisping isn't a top 10 MW. You tell me.

    He beat him and beat him badly. Ragdolled him for 3 rounds.

    Refer to the Belfort reply.

    Oh he only did the best that any man that hasn't beat him has done. Check out Anderson's highlight reel UFC career and you tell me.

    I mean he was fighting with 16.9:1 T/E ratio wasn't he at the time? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I personally think Munoz is ranked higher than he should be on those rankings, as he has only beaten Damien Maia, and Chris Leben. So a slugger, and a black belt in JJ - no biggy.
    You know he already beat Okami, right? And that despite the T:E ratio, his actual levels were found to be within normal ranges. And he got clearance for TRT for the upcoming Anderson fight. And most importantly...

    Lombard: "Damn, Stann is suddenly injured... Hey Bisping, I'm calling you out!"
    Bisping: "Uh... Oh yea! I'm injured now too!"
    Lombard: "Since when"?
    Bisping: "Since I saw you calling me out, I shit myself so bad, I blew my asshole out, Rampage is back there trying to put it back in right now".

    When somebody gets popped for juicing, does it discredit all of their past wins which they tested clean? If not, then Sonnen dominated Okami already, he dominated Stann, he dominated Marquardt for the #1 contender spot. He also beat Bisping. So since his Maia fight, he hasnt lost except against silva. Sonnen deserves to be ranked #2. Honestly, Vitor is ranked too high for my tastes also, since he has only had 1 victory at MW ad that was over a top 20 in Akiyama. Okami should be ranked 4-5th based on his wins over Nate and Munoz but his loss to Tim should set him back.

    Tbear, no I would not have maia ahead of Sonnen. Maia lost against both Munoz, wiedman, and Silva. He most recently victory was a fighter who was top 15.

    It willtake alittle bit, but I will make a list of my top 10 MWs (UFC only) and post it.
