Badr Hari Accepts Suspension for Use of “Prohibited Substances”

Badr Hari Accepts Suspension for Use of “Prohibited Substances” as reported BY NOS earlier today, following on from previous reports that GLORY Kickboxing wanted to, or, were trying to terminate the doping authority’s contract in the Netherlands; after it emerged other fighters including, Malden Brestovic and Hesdy Gerges were reported to have failed doping tests for performance enhancing drugs (PEDs).

However, this isn’t simply a heavyweight kickboxing problem, is it?

Recent doping cases in MMA with UFC champions, TJ Dillashaw and Jon Jones; as well as most recently with pro heavyweight boxer and former GLORY kickboxer, Jarrell Millar who, was set to fight Anthony Joshua in six weeks, has also failed well publicised doping tests.

What do you all make of this and do you agree or disagree with K1ANOOP?

Jimi Manuwa “Iooking at” UFC Fight Night Moscow, UK in Golden Period with “New Stars Like Darren Till”

UFC light-heavyweight, Jimi Manuwa declares: “I’m looking at September Moscow” and that “new stars like Darren Till” is one of the main reasons why the UK is in its ‘Golden Period’ of MMA; with British UFC star, Darren Till, having recently defeated, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson at, UFC Liverpool.

The UFC had recently announced that they will be hosting their first event (UFC Fight Night Moscow) in Russia at the Olimpiyskiy Arena, Moscow on, September 15, 2018.

With it being reported as UFC Fight Night Moscow and not as a pay per view event, the UFC’s first event in Russia won’t (most probably) feature Russian MMA fighter and UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov but the addition of, Jimi Manuwa would add more interest for fight fans.

However, further announcements about the fight card are expected in due course and if Jimi Manuwa is set to fight on UFC Fight Night Moscow then who, do you feel Manuwa should be matched-up with?
