(Matt Hammill, when will you ever learn?)
Besides being a useful resource for hawking your old furniture and buying (likely stolen) used video game consoles, Craigslist is known as a portal for freaks looking to fulfill their bizarre fantasies with perfect strangers.
It turns out that the site also has a strong contingency of MMA fans who use the online service to solicit training partners, pay-per-view watching buddies and much, much worse.
We took on the painstaking, and extremely disturbing (seriously…some boxes can’t be unopened…) task of searching through countless personal ads using combinations of the names of promotions, submissions and fighting disciplines as keywords to come up with our list of the 25 strangest ads we could before having to tap out.
Check out the 25 most eyebrow-raising posts we discovered after the jump:
Basically, the ads can be grouped into a few categories: weird, soliciting sex (which could also have its own subcategory entitled ‘dudes lying about being fighters to solicit sex’), soliciting gay sex, and gay dudes claiming they are straight soliciting gay sex.
Is Eddie Bravo in town for a seminar?
Apparently HD is the clincher with most Jersey Shore types…
ATTN: Cris Santos. Please respond to this ad.
Attention: Cris Santos. Please respond to this ad.
Seriously? What the hell is wrong with the human race?
Can someone who speaks Diaz please translate?
He has butterflies he’d like to loan you? Seriously?
No fakes, huh? Does that include you?
I bet the money is rolling in. Amateurs with less than a handful of fights make at least $500 per bout.
I guess the “I’m an MMA fighter” schtick didn’t work on its own.
WOW! A model, a Marine and an MMA fighter. It’s no wonder you don’t have time to actually go out and meet chicks outside of Craigslist.
By “ex-military,” do you mean boy scouts?
He’s “a MMA fighter.” Come on girls. Go out with this guy.
SOLICITING GAY SEX:
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
Something about a guy using the word “discreet” in a want ad for a training partner just doesn’t sit well — that and the fact that he makes a point of saying he’s cool with bi and gay dudes applying, like it really matters.
Huh? Hopefully a guy like Wand doesn’t apply to this one thinking it’s just some dude looking to train.
A BJ? Does that mean he’s going to bring his mom over?
That fighters union is looking pretty good now, huh Dana?
Cutting right to the chase.
I guess the open approach above didn’t get him many bites.
Forget playing the “I’m an MMA fighter” card. This dude jumped right to the “I have terminal cancer” sympathy card when his first two ads didn’t work.
Fight for top of what? And what kind of “stats” are you talking about?
GAY, BUT IN DENIAL:
There’s a name for what you’re advertising. It’s called free S&M.
AND THE MOST DISTURBING MMA FAN IS….
I am not impressed by your denial.
