PFL 4 Results: Both Andre Harrison and Lance Palmer Snag Wins, Advancing in Tournament

It was a World Series of Fighting reunion in the PFL main- and co-main events, with former champs Lance Palmer and Andre Harrison pretty much picking up where they left off when the WSOF folded and kicking butt.

For the undefeated Harrison, who faced UFC and Bellator (and just about every other organization out there) vet Nazareno Malegarie, that meant three maddening rounds of sprawling and clipping Argentinean jiu-jitsu black belt with the occasional kick or punch. Look, Harrison is awesome, and comes from the local New York/New Jersey scene I used to cover, but would it kill the guy to find a finish?

Meanwhile, the main event was all about Palmer completely and totally dominating hapless Jumabieke Tuerxun on the ground. Apparently Tuerxun is Chinese, but the Russian kind, which reminds me of a Mongolian girl I know who looks Chinese but speaks with a Russian accent. Very trippy. Anyway, it took about two and a half rounds for Palmer to finally find the tap out, and it came via a neck crank.

So now Harrison and Siler and Palmer have all earned enough experience points to level up, and they can choose another weapon proficiency plus two more spells. Or something like that.

PFL 4, y’all.

Cormier: Jones’ Legacy Is As Tainted As Lance Armstrong’s

Jon Jones is still sitting idle on the UFC sidelines as his team works to avoid a four year suspension from USADA over (another) failed drug test, this one on the eve of his second fight with Daniel Cormier. Jones ended up knocking Cormier out in brutal fashion, but the record books will forever list their rematch as a No Contest.

That doesn’t change how things really went down in the minds of many fans, or in the mind of Jones. Jon made that abundantly clear when the UFC’s Twitter account asked if Cormier could be considered the GOAT if he beats heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic at UFC 226.

”If he’s in the conversation, does that make me the motherf**king man?” Jones tweeted.

CBS Sports reached out to Cormier regarding the tweets, and for half a second the 205 pound champ seemed like he wasn’t going to engage.

”He doesn’t have a platform and I refuse to give him a platform,” Cormier replied before immediately giving him a platform. “He’s a nobody. He has been suspended again. He’s mired in controversy for drug abuse. Your issues are tied to steroids, performance enhancers. You don’t get a platform when you’re like that. It’s like me glorifying Lance Armstrong.”

And as far as Cormier is concerned, Jon’s accomplishments should be severely downgraded, just like Armstrong’s were once the truth of his PED usage came out.

“[Jones] won the fight but, hey, since USADA has gotten involved with the UFC, he only fought one time,” Cormier said. “He has had four fights scheduled. So he fought Ovince [Saint Preux] and he fought me but that second one was a no contest. The Ovince fight was the only time he fought and there was no controversy surrounding it. So I’m pretty sure there was some dirty stuff going on, that’s why the test results were all jacked up in December.”

Cormier is referencing a drug test result in the month leading up to their first fight at the end of 2014. Not only did Jones test positive for cocaine metabolites (which surprisingly enough are not banned outside of fight week), but his testosterone to epitestosterone levels were suspiciously low. Combine that with his future drug failures and it’s no wonder “DC” has written off Jones’ entire UFC career as illegitimate. Being able to sweep aside those two crushing losses is just an extra bonus.

Is TJ Dillashaw The Lance Armstrong Of UFC?

When Lance Armstrong said he was “cycling” back in 2005, I was naive enough to think he meant pedaling those skinny-little Lance legs up and down the French mountainside. Turns out he was coming off Erythropoietin (EPO), the red blood cell booster that may have contributed to his wins in the Tour de France.

What does that have to do with mixed marital arts (MMA)?

Well, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has seen its share of EPO in drug test suspensions of Chael Sonnen and Gleison Tibau, among others, and now former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt has another name he’d like to add to the list.

Ostracized teammate and current 135-pound titleholder TJ Dillashaw.

“UFC told me how many excuses you made not to fight me,” Garbrandt revealed on social media. “I’m talking about the March fight and then you said you were hurt, must be all that EPO going to your head! Have a safe camp see you in August!”

Dillashaw ignored the charge and instead accused “No Love” of having no brains. Probably because of dumb moves like this.

Hopefully this score will be settled when they rematch at the upcoming UFC 227 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Aug. 4, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Dillashaw won their first go-round by way of second round knockout.
