Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

4th of July Quiz: Who Said It, Founding Father or MMA Fighter?

(So I sez to da brod, “I want to f*ck Chuck!“)

By Jason Moles

Happy Independence Day, Potato Nation! In honor of today’s festivities we figured it was time once again to switch things up around here. For starters, we’re not going to tell you that the fight you were looking forward to has been rescheduled/tweaked/cancelled due to injury, nor will we bog you down with the latest trash talk between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. Instead, let’s play a patriotic game. We’ll give you a list of quotes and then you decide who said it, either a founding father or a famous (and I’m using that word lightly) MMA fighter. The answer key is on the next page. Let’s begin!

1. “Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances.” Was this A.) Diego Sanchez or B.) Ben Franklin

2. “I let go of the disappointments and setbacks in my life and hang on to the promises of God for my future.” Was this A.) Phil Baroni or B.) John Adams

3. “And to think, there are still places in the world where man has not been, where he has left no footprints, where the mysteries stand secure, untouched by human eyes. I want to go to these places, the quiet, timeless, ageless places, and sit, letting silence and solitude be my teachers.” Was this A.) Evan Tanner or B.) Thomas Jefferson

4. “I have not yet begun to fight!” Was this A.) Jon Jones or B.) John Paul Jones

5. “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”  Was this A.) Chael Sonnen or B.) George Washington

6. “One of the ultimate things that a human can learn is kindness for their fellow humans and understanding. As long as I can get the message out, that’s the important part.”  Was this A.) Evan Tanner or B.) Patrick Henry

7. “We must all hang together, or, assuredly, we shall all hang separately.”  Was this: A) Renzo Gracie or B) Benjamin Franklin

8. “You’ve always got a politician who puts the blame on the other ones saying ‘They did this, they did that. You should vote for me because they did this.’ He never does that. He just sticks to his beliefs and he doesn’t really point fingers. He doesn’t get into the mudslinging part of campaigning and I like that.” Was this A.) Jacob Volkmann or B.) Thomas Paine

9. “War, like most other things, is a science to be acquired and perfected by diligence, by perseverance, by time, and by practice.” Was this A.) Tim Kennedy or B.) Alexander Hamilton

10. “They just have to remember… and reflect upon the sacrifices that were made to make this country what it is.” Was this A.) Brian Stann or B.) George Washington

11. “The best thing to give your enemy is forgiveness.” Was this A.) Georges St. Pierre or B.) Benjamin Franklin

Now let’s see how you did…

I'm so pleased to have Xenophon back. Now, where's MMA Sommelier to make me complete?

Alexander Hamilton - “War, like most other things, is a science to be acquired and perfected by diligence, by perseverance, by time, and by practice.”

Fun fact: Aaron Burr was the first man to say "Anderson Silva, you absolutely suck." Who knew, right?

I got #10 wrong.

10/10 for me, and I'm not American.

I just based it on the level of eloquence and linguistic style of the quotes. Lets just say MMA fighters don't talk like founding fathers...

Although I must say I'm impressed by Evan Tanner.

Don't forget to hit select start for two players

8/10? Does that make me a pre-patriot for having never set foot on any land that even makes up that continent?

That depends.... If you wear a large tacky American flag lapel pin - You, sir, are a patriot. (well, in Washington D.C. you're a certified patriot. Everyone else without said pin is a coward and a traitor.)
