Cung Le’s HGH Suspension Lifted by UFC Due to ‘Lack of Conclusive Laboratory Results’

(Photo via Getty) After being suspended from competition for 12 months due to a positive test for excessive human growth hormone (HGH) following UFC Fight Night 48, UFC middleweight Cung Le went on a public campaign arguing that the testing protocols used by the UFC for its August event in Macau were completely sub-standard. Essentially, the UFC farmed out the work to a local lab that maybe didn't know what it was doing and destroyed Le's sample so he couldn't appeal the result. Fortunately, the UFC has done the right thing by rescinding the suspension, and Le is now free to fight again. Here's the official statement from UFC.com: At UFC Fight Night Macao on August 23rd, UFC contracted with an independent drug testing laboratory in Hong Kong to perform urinalysis testing on all fighters on the card. Additionally, UFC requested the laboratory to test blood samples from 4 fighters for human growth hormone (HGH), erythropoietin (EPO) and testosterone. One of the athletes who had his blood tested was Cung Le. The laboratory results from Le’s blood test were sent to the UFC and showed that his blood had a total HGH level outside the reference range. Based on such results, UFC officials determined that Le had violated his promotional agreement and the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. Consequently, UFC decided that Le should be suspended from unarmed combat competition for 12 months. Following the announcement of Le’s suspension, UFC officials have been provided with medical advice regarding the elevated total HGH present in Le’s system. In accordance with such medical advice, UFC has determined that Le’s elevated total HGH by itself does not prove that he took performance-enhancing drugs before the August 23rd bout. As a result, UFC has informed Le that his suspension is rescinded.

MMA Meme of the Day: Ballerinas Knocking Out MMA Fighters

From the mad genius known as Masato Toys, here are some totally random photoshops of ballerinas knocking out MMA fighters. If we were one of those clickbait sites, we'd title this post, "Ballerinas Knocking Out MMA Fighters Is the Greatest MMA Meme in the World, OMG #4 Will Make You Cry," and every image would be on a separate slide that required you to watch a 32-second Lincoln MKZ commercial before you could view it, but we've pretty much given up on making a profit at this point, so instead, check out a few of our favorite ballerina/MMA memes (which continue after the jump), and see the rest here.

Henry Cejudo Gets a Chance to Un-Screw Himself at Bantamweight, Booked For ‘UFC on FOX: Dos Santos vs. Miocic’

(Photo via Getty) After a plain bizarre string on no-shows, weigh-in flubs and general flakiness, it looks like we might finally see 2008 Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo step foot into the octagon (but probably not). Not many of us saw Cejudo's signing with the UFC coming when it was announced back in July. When it was simultaneously announced that Cejudo would be facing Scott Jorgensen -- an upper-level fighter in any weight class -- at flyweight -- a weight which Cejudo had failed to make in both of his previous appearances in Legacy FC -- we were all but guaranteed a weigh-in day fiasco from the former Olympian. And right on cue, it happened. Here's what we wrote then:
The most unreliable fighter in mixed martial arts has done it again, folks. UFC.com confirms that former Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo has withdrawn from hisscheduled UFC 177 match against Scott Jorgensen “due to medical reasons.” This is the same guy who no-showed the weigh-ins for Legacy FC 25 last November due to a reported stomach flu, blew weight by 3.5 pounds before his win over Elias Garcia in January, pulled out of a Legacy FC title fight against Damacio Page this past May due to “personal reasons,” then withdrew from the main event of Legacy FC 34 last month for undisclosed reasons, just before signing with the UFC. In retrospect, it’s kind of baffling that the UFC signed this flake in the first place — although the promotion hedged its bets by burying Cejudo vs. Jorgensen on the UFC 177 prelims.
His flyweight career over before it ever began, Cejudo was forced to move up to bantamweight by Dana White himself and now has his UFC debut booked for realzies this time. Find out who he'll be facing after the jump.

Mayhem Miller Pleads Not Guilty to Resisting and Obstructing Officer Charges

(This face says a lot, but lawbreaker? Nahhh son.) For today's installment of the CagePotato Tri-County Blotter, we once again return to former UFC middleweight Jason "Mayhem" Miller, who you *might* recall was detained by SWAT units last week following a standoff with police, that he live-tweeted. While Orange County police were originally paying Miller a visit to bring him in on stalking, domestic violence, and criminal contempt charges, his three-hour standoff forced them to slap an obstructing an officer and resisting arrest charges as well. According to ABC7 in Los Angeles, it appears that Miller will be fighting those last two aforementioned charges, and thank God for that. "MMA fighter Jason @mayhemmiller pleads not guilty to resisting and obstructing officer charge," tweeted ABC7's Julie Sone yesterday. Additionally, MMAFighting has obtained police records which claim that Miller was able to post the $200,000 bond after spending 7 days in jail. NOTE TO CITIZENS OF MISSION VIEJO: Lock up your daughters, lock up your wives, lock up your back doors and run for your lives. As luck would have it, Miller has already taken to Twitter to vent his frustrations with the manner in which he was arrested...

Croatian Boxer Knocks Out Referee, Is Dragged Out of the Ring by His Feet

(Angle 1, via joebiemel) (Angle 2, with funky groove, via sportsviewlondon) Things got a little out of hand yesterday at the European Youth Boxing Championship in Zagreb, Croatia, when a disgruntled Croat boxer named Vido Loncar went superheel and punched out a referee following his match against Algirdas Baniulis of Lithuania. (See also: Yvel, Gilbert.) After dropping the ref with a savage right straight, Loncor continued to fire down shots from above. Meanwhile, Baniulis scampers out of the ring like a frightened cat. Eventually, about a dozen guys bum-rush the ring, and Loncor is dragged out by his heels. The ending of Nightmare on Elm Street comes to mind. Crazy.

Report: Alexander Gustafsson vs. Rashad Evans Likely for January UFC Event in Stockholm

("So Alex, how do you plan to face the unique strategic challenges that Rashad will pres...uh...dude, don't freak, but there's a big-ass ebola virus like 30 feet behind you." / Photo via Getty) As first reported by MMAMania, the UFC is working on a light heavyweight bout between Alexander Gustafsson and Rashad Evans, that would headline a FOX event in in Stockholm, Sweden, on January 24th, 2015. Mania credited the info to "a source with knowledge of the situation," and the bout has not been officially confirmed yet. Following his TKO of Jimi Manuwa in March, Gustafsson claimed that he wouldn't take another fight until he got a rematch with Jon Jones, who had outpointed "The Mauler" during their title bout last September. A self-imposed hiatus is a high-risk strategy in the UFC, and we're kind of glad to see him reconsider. As for Evans, the one-time UFC light-heavyweight champion is coming off back-to-back wins against Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen, but hasn't competed at all in 2014 due to the knee injury he sustained in February. Essentially, it's a fight that would clinch another title shot for Gustafsson if he wins, but wouldn't necessarily do the same thing for Evans. Your predictions, please.

Read War Machine’s Suicide Note, Left at Jail Cell Hanging Attempt

(Image via TMZ) As you may have heard, the MMA fighter known as War Machine attempted suicide last Tuesday night at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, where he is being held on dozens of charges related to assaults on ex-girlfriend Christy Mack. According to TMZ's initial report, War Machine was found unresponsive on the floor of his cell with a piece of linen tied around his neck, and is currently on suicide watch. A suicide note was recovered from the cell, and somehow, TMZ got its hands on that, too. You can see the scanned three-page letter right here, or read our transcription below. Short version: War Machine quotes Friedrich Nietzsche, professes his undying love for Christy Mack, says goodbye to his family and friends, and laments that he just wasn't made for these times. ******* "To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly." -Nietzsche- If you are reading this then it must be a rap. I refuse to live a parasitic life, relying on taxes and the generosity of friends for food and shelter, while never being able to give back. I always used to say, "You gotta know when the gig is up." I had a good run. I experienced more in my short life than 5 avg. men combined. To: Christy, my one: I truly love you and planned on being with you forever. I know that I had many flaws and that I wasn't the best BF at times. [Ed. note: Dude.] When I left you in May it didn't take me long to realize my mistake. I loved you more than freedom.

Falling Tree Knockout of the Day: Damacio Page Annihilates Brian Hall at Legacy FC 36

(Props: AXS TV Fights) Friday night at Legacy FC 36, bantamweight veteran Damacio Page knocked out Brian Hall about as ferociously as one person can knock out another person. Less than two minutes into the bout, Page landed a sledgehammer overhand right that put Hall into falling tree mode. It was one of those super creepy knockouts where Hall was totally unconscious, but his eyes remained open (aka, "The Living Death"). Page is now 4-0 under the Legacy banner, with all four wins by stoppage. Expect to see this knockout on some end-of-year lists, although this is still the 2014 KOTY frontrunner in my book.

Serious Question: Will the UFC Exist in 50 Years?

(No party can last forever. / Photo via Getty) By Mike Fagan A few weeks ago, I posed a question to Twitter: “What are the odds the UFC doesn’t exist in 50 years?” I figured most people would call me crazy for even asking the question, since human beings underestimate the likelihood of unlikely events. Yet, the responses I got — responses from people whose opinions I respect — swung hard the other way: “Really really high.” “Absolutely gone within 50 years.” “50 years? 99 percent.” “[W]ould guess better than 50% chance it doesn't exist in 50 years.” “I'd say zero chance in 50 years.” Of the ten or so people to respond, none gave the UFC better than a 50/50 shot of existing in 50 years. Now, that seems low to me, but it speaks to the nonzero probability that the UFC may cease to exist between now and 2064. The UFC seems to be in total control. They’ve bested all their serious competitors. Their TV deal with Fox/Fox Sports has cemented them in the mainstream, albeit a NASCAR-esque niche of that mainstream. They have a virtual monopoly on the top fighters in the sport. So what could bring them down? Let’s speculate! THE IMPENDING APOCALYPSE! This one’s cheating, but let’s just use it as a catch-all for natural disasters, acts of God(s), and mutually assured destruction. We also shouldn’t discount the possibility of aliens returning for Georges St-Pierre. In short, there may not be a place for MMA because there may not be a place for human beings on this planet. HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER! Ted Turner bought Jim Crockett Promotions in November 1988 and renamed it World Championship Wrestling. Within six years, Monday Nitro, WCW’s flagship TV show, began drawing better ratings than the then-named World Wrestling Federation’s Monday Night Raw. WCW ultimately failed in its attempt to usurp the WWF, and Turner was forced to sell the promotion in 2001. It’s not a perfect analogy — the WWF of 1990 did not have the same sort of stranglehold on talent as current-day UFC (or WWE for that matter). The perfect time to enter the market would have been in the vacuum of Pride’s absence, and the UFC has already weathered storms that Affliction and Strikeforce posed.

And Now He’s “Semi-Retired”: Martin Kampmann’s Indecisive Retirement Speech

Remember Martin Kampmann, Potato Chips (that's what we call our fans now). Seeing as he hasn't fought in over a year, we kind of almost forgot he existed. If you're struggling to remember, Kampmann hasn't fought since a 2013 TKO loss to Carlos Condit. Before that, he was knocked out by Johny Hendricks at UFC 154 in 2012. Despite the inactivity and two-fight losing streak, Kampmann isn't done (yet). He told MMA Fighting the following...
