Well, here we are. It's after UFC 200 and we've got a number of notable drug test failure. Potential violations, mind you, but test failures just the same. Brock Lesnar has tested positive both in and out-of-competition, apparently for the same substance. The same substance, mind you, that Jones also tested positive for. However, there's another substance on top of that he's also tested positive. What to make of this? It's not clear yet, since the due process for UFC fighters under the current USADA agreement is so minimal. However, one cannot imagine unless there's been some sort of tragic mistake that either will escape punishment.

And the train rolls on. UFC on FOX 20 is this weekend with a card that's not particularly great, but has some gems at the top of it. Bellator 159 is Friday and while it's largely forgettable, Darrion Caldwell is at the top of the bill.

Then there's the anger of Mark Hunt, the broken skull of Cyborg Santos and so much more.
