Book reports MLB gave Alex Rodriguez a TUE for testosterone

+

Apparently a piece of investigative journalism is reporting that Major League Baseball gave A Rod a TUE for test (and I believe another substance). Interesting to learn more about how the major sports give out TUEs, sounds like they all do a small amount

Nice statistical analysis of the # of sweeps in MMA

1

Spoiler- very few. It's interesting because nogi has a lot of sweeps, but in MMA not so much. Open to debate on whether that's because the level of jiu-jitsu in MMA is not very high, or because sweeps are nowhere near as high percentage in a different sport. I'm leaning towards the latter but I'm a pretty big skeptic of the effectiveness of pure jiu-jitsu in MMA

I'm an unabashed critic of Zuffa's abusive employment practices. Their legal department must be quaking after this ruling. This goes directly to the Fitch/AKA fight over Zuffa using fighter's likenesses without compensation in video games, for all time.

4

Just to follow up on some of the fighter pay issues that have been discussed recently.... A great many fans believe that fighters are somehow making out like bandits from sponsorships. Here, the UFC seems to have arbitrarily told Pretorian they can no longer sponsor Zuffa fighters

Has anyone else considered that Nick Diaz might not show up to the actual fight on Saturday?

I'm not talking about the press conference, or whatever other pre-fight fluffery Zuffa wants their fighters to engage in. I mean, has anyone else considered that the volatile Diaz might not show up...

Post-fight analysis you probably shouldn't read, given my track record

Crow. Actually not that bad with a side of greens and some red wine. I wrote an Aldo-Edgar pre-fight analysis that just whiffed and completely missed the mark. Instead, I was pleasantly...

Am I the only one who can't view SBNation sites on Android mobile?

Maybe that's a little exaggerated but all of the SBNation sites are borderline unuseable on my phone, they just crash constantly. I know a fanpost isn't the best way to address it, but I e-mailed...
