Ben Saunders was fucking HIGH

On Mr Sunshine’s radio show, Ben Saunders talked about how he was ultra-sick and tripping balls off medication for his TUF fight last night. You can listen to the audio here, but the gist of it is that Ben took a bunch of drugs lying around the house from other fighters to try and create a nice combo that would take care of his sickness plus counteract all the different drug side effects. To paraphrase:

“My number one goal was to impress Dana White, and my number two goal was to win the competition. I might have gone in and lost the fight, but I had a feeling like if I hadn’t gone in, my career would have been over.”

Hey, props to Ben Saunders for doing what he felt he had to do to keep his career rolling (even though it was fucking stupid). On the other hand, fuck the UFC for consistantly putting people into a position where they have to do shit like this. It’s situations like this that makes Hermes Franca’s decision to use steroids seem a bit more understandable.

    I think he knocked Tommy out of the competition too. They said one of the semifinal fighters is out and the other 3 guys all had cake matches. Tommy’s arm looked hyperextended to me when Ben had him in the armbar.

    That fight was probably the worst, non-technical, amateur fight I have seen in a long time. The highlights from small shows on Inside MMA show better fights. Tommy looks like he has very little potential. I don’t understand why everyone is hyping him up. Dana was talking him up like he’s the next big thing. He is no Hamill & I’m not impressed w/his lack of improvement anyway. If Ben wasn’t HIGH & his BJJ is beyond beginner level, he could have finished him so many times.

    Tommy is a powerful ‘rassler farmboy welterweight. Dana sees Matt Hughes V.2 to come around right when Captain Jesus retires. Nothing pulls in the hick buys like fucking country boys.
