Sunday Morning Coming Down “You’re Boring…talk to the hand” is the new, “Guilty as Charged” Not long after Vitor Belfort helped Luke Rockhold lay out his mat for his kindergarten slumber, he was at the press conference, celebrating his victory when a member of the media dared to ask him a question about his TRT usage.  Vitor frowned on the question and said, “You’re boring man, you’re boring.  Please get out of here; I am not going to talk to you. Talk to the hand.”  Yes, Vitor Belfort told another grown man to, “Talk to the hand.”  Benjamin Grimm needs a timeout.   If you don’t know who that is, Google it, chuckle and then get back to this article.  I mean, Vitor is just becoming an unstoppable force these days.  If he needs TRT, what hope is there for the rest of us?  He will likely have to keep fighting outside of the US, as Keith Kizar, per Damon Martin, said the NSAC was “unlikely” to issue Belfort a TRT exemption, which wouldn’t bode well for the Bionic Brazilian.   Dana White isn’t crazy about TRT, and fighters who are using it as an unfair advantage or out of a necessity after abusing steroids, should be stopped.  It’s the slipperiest of slopes right now in the UFC, and one issue that could curb the growing sport’s popularity among new fans.  Nobody wants to see better fighting through chemistry.  Have submissions, will travel What an amazing debut by “Jacare” in the UFC last night.  He is as talented as anyone in the sport with the submission game, and his stand up looks to be improving as well.  While it may not be fair to hand him the keys to the castle based on a victory of Chris Camozzi.  Chris is game, but he’s not anywhere near the top of the food chain at 185.  That being said, Souza looked tremendous, winning the striking exchanges, quickly catching Camozzi in an oma plata, and then utilizing a sick arm triangle to get the victory and amp up the Brazilians in the crowd.  It’ll be interesting to see who he fights next.  More on that at the end of this article.  Puff, Puff, give up a bunch of cash!  Or Cat gets “Carawayed” Oh Pat Healy, that was one expensive high.  While it’s idiotic that these guys even test for MJ, the sad fact is, they do, and you have to play by the rules.  Marijuana isn’t performance enhancing, unless you’re talking about the ability to eat Cheetos and Oreo cookies, then yeah, unfair advantage.  The UFC’s decision to strip his bonus money was a dick move, giving it to Bryan Caraway was just insult to injury.  I have an idea, let’s take the bonus money from a guy who went to war for your company and had an amazing fight with Jim Miller, because at some point leading up to it, he smoked a little weed.  Then, why don’t you give that money to another guy, who happens to think it’s fun to elbow women in the head.  It’s a mind blower.  Weed, bad. Hitting women, ah **** happens.   If Nate would have just called Bryan an "instigating little man, with small man complex, with a  famous and more talented girlfriend", he would have been fine.  Cat Zingano informed the world that Caraway delivered the elbow before the weigh ins between Cat and Miesha, and there were witnesses to the shameful act of stupidity.  Mind you, this is the same guy who threatened to break Ronda Rousey’s arm.  Maybe the honchos at the UFC should look into this situation, before we find Liz Carmouche with a black eye somewhere saying, “I don’t know officer, it looked like a Bryan Caraway puppet, being worked from above by Miesha Tate.  That’s crazy though, isn’t it?” Is it? Well, 5 out 6 is an improvement…but it sucks for Evan Dunham I tweeted last night that the judges were doing a great job, and were spot on early in the evening after nailing a few decisions.  Then, I had to leave for awhile and I got a message from @shelbybelfast that read, “Spoke too soon.”  Turns out I did.  When I came home and watched the FX fights, it was clear Evan Dunham got the bitter end of a bad decision against Rafael Dos Anjos.  The judging needs to be spot on; it can’t go 4 for 6 or even 5 for 6.  They need to work until they get them all right, or the sport is made weaker.  Hopefully Evan is not released on the heels of that decision.  Can’t imagine he would be.  Who’s next?  Fights to make after UFC on FX8 Vitor Belfort vs. Chael P. Sonnen (obviously since Chael called him Unstoppable, he’s setting up the future fight.)  (( Little does Chael know, another Brazilian is going to knock him out before that can happen.)) Luke Rockhold vs. Alan Belcher Jacare Souza vs. Yushin Okami Moving on Up, Moving on Out! We had a few fighters who used their performances to cement their place on the UFC roster, and some who used it to nearly guarantee their dismissal.  Here’s who’s going up and away, and who’s just going away.  Jacare Souza – Moving on Up! Vitor Belfort – Moving on Up! Jeremy Larsen – Moving on Out! Roger Hollett – Moving on Out! John Cholish – Moving on Out! (Retired)
