They were undeniable truths — until suddenly, they weren’t. Check out our latest list below, and ask yourself: What do I believe now that will turn out to be utter bullshit someday?

1. Alistair Overeem will become the UFC heavyweight champion in less than a year.

2. There’s no way a boxer could ever beat a mixed martial artist under MMA rules.

3. Rickson’s record is 400-0. No, seriously.

4. Mark Hunt is a washed up has-been…but this McCorkle kid looks promising.

5. When Gina Carano retires, it’ll be the end of women’s MMA.

6. Georges St. Pierre and I have built a genuine connection over Twitter.

7. Steven Seagal is one of the baddest motherfuckers of all time.

8. Nobody can finish Minotauro Nogueira.

9. Okay, so maybe he can be finished, but nobody can submit Nogueira.

I'll testify that I did get my shirts for the 157 contest. Now the stuff I won for the 145 contest...

Also, that Pride game is still fun all these years later. BEWARE THE MIGHT OF TOM ERIKSON!!!

To be fair, I did receive 2 of the 3 shirts I won on here for Comment of the Week.

To be clear, some fag still owes me one shirt.

26. Pride fighters will destroy the UFC guys (insert cro cop getting his soul kicked out of his face).

Does it count if people still believe this?

Like in the smartphone-less wasteland known as South Dakota?

Oh god, who wrote this?!?!

It's so poorly written I vomited my coffee all over my computer and got electrocuted when I tried to wipe it up.

It's so poorly written my eyes started bleeding and I collected my tear blood and used it for lubricant while I masturbated shamefully in the corner gloating over my awesome comments.

It's so poorly written it makes me want to go fuck a homeless crack whore so I can get crabs and then shave half my pubes off, light the other half on fire and smash the crabs with a hammer when they come running out.

(How's that?)

26. CagePotato really meant it when they said they were bringing back the Comment of the Week awards.

You're stretching it there by calling Tim Sylvia a mixed martial artist. I think mixed martial marshmallow would be more correct.

Splitting hairs, but does it count as "submission" if you break your arm and never tap?
stak- May 17, 2013 at 8:39 am
it's called a technical submission, so technically, yes, it is a submission
