The Blueprint: Rousey vs. Carmouche

Say hello to the ladies.

On Saturday night, female athletes will compete in the UFC for the first time in history. That is reason enough to tune in, though it is far from the sole reason.

UFC 157 is full of great fights. The main card features “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler’s return to the UFC after nearly a decade fighting elsewhere. It also marks his return to the welterweight division – the same division he competed in during his last UFC stint. His opponent, Josh Koscheck, is one of the best the division has to offer. A win by Lawler makes him instantly relevant in the division. A win by Kos reminds the world that he isn’t going anywhere any time soon. . . . Click here for more by Michael DiSanto, UFC.com

Sulaiman: Drugs are not a major problem in WBC boxing

The following is one of WBC President Jose Sulaiman’s weekly “Hook to the Liver” columns that are published in El Universal every Sunday. From February 17, translated from Spanish:

The world did not end in December last, as some people interpreted the Mayan predictions, but our planet Earth is sending human beings serious messages. A devastating hurricane came over New York. There are constant earthquakes in many countries. A snow storm fell on Boston and New England as never before in known history. The pope resigns and a lightening falls on the Vatican. Two days later a meteorite falls on Russia, leaving 1,000 injured, while one other, 100-times larger, passes close to Earth at 10% distance compared to the moon.

Several countries are in a permanent war while one other provokes an earthquake with an atom bomb testing. Human beings continue creating more and more controversy. Boxing is no exception. The alleged punishment by USADA of Erik Morales for analysis of minimal doses of clembuterol, even when the USADA lab tests were clean, raises a big controversy and confusion in Mexico. Anybody in this country could have clembuterol, as it is natural for those eating meat. Such a sanction has no acceptance in title bouts of the WBC, as the only ones to make the antidoping tests are the WBC itself and the local boxing commissions, whose tests were clean. (more…)
