MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Add Another Name to Zuffa’s ‘Banned’ List

Booya Fight Girls
(The Booyaa Fight Girls: Voted most likely to lie to you about working their way through community college.)

Banning clothing brands as potential sponsors is so much fun, Zuffa is at it once again.  MMA Payout reports that the newest addition to the blacklist is Booyaa Fightwear, an apparel-maker whose loose affiliation with the King of the Cage organization was enough to torpedo their proposed sponsorship of Mike Budnik in his WEC bout this week. 

King of the Cage was part of the Pro Elite network of organizations, but is one of the few entities that can still promote fights and is still somewhat capable of scratching out a living as small-timers.  Apparently this makes KOTC, and by extension Booyaa Fightwear (if ever there was a company name more inspired by the mid-nineties, I’ve yet to hear of it), a perceived competitor of the WEC.  And we all know how Zuffa deals with competitors. 

Booyaa is the first potential sponsor to be banned for merely sponsoring another organization.  They join Affliction, which got ousted for starting its own company (understandable), and MMA Authentics, which drew Zuffa’s ire when it nabbed the coveted Wal-Mart shelf space that the UFC thought was all theirs (a little less understandable, but okay). 

Now they ban a brand for sponsoring another minor, regional organization.  Anyone else see some very aggressive business tactics developing lately?

Perhaps the message here is: don’t do business with any other MMA org if you hope to one day do business with the WEC or UFC.  If so, that’s Zuffa’s prerogative, but it sure sucks for guys like Budnik, who just lost a little much-needed cash as collateral damage in this war for ultimate supremacy.  At least there’s always Condom Depot.  Just go ahead and put the decal right on your ass, there.

    I hope condom depot provides extra lube packs with the condoms, otherwise zuffa is going to be full of fighters with some extremely sore asses. DW is getting out of fucking hand with this strong arm shit. "Booyaa Fightwear (if ever there was a company name more inspired by the mid-nineties, I've yet to hear of it)," True, until Liddel starts up Chuck's Ice Ice Baby Freezer Pop Company.

    I can't wait for the UFC to get big enough for Congress to come knocking. NFL, MLB, NBA all have government-granted exemptions from Monopoly regulations. UFC does not. NFL, MLB, NBA all are American institutions that have been around for a century. UFC is not. I wonder if Uncle Sam will afford Zuffa the same luxuries?

    @Deadpanda I hardly think ZUFFA cares at all about some dumb board game. Geez.

    they should quit worrying about this stupid shit and concentrate on sighning the best fighters which would actually hurt their competition. just think instead of panning to random celebrities they could pan to the booya girls everyone wins.

    I guess that means I have to sign all my CagePotato posts as Anonymous from now on, lest I be banned from the UFC, too.

    What threat can Booya pose to an organization like Zuffa? People wanna eat and Dana won't let them. What happens when nobody wants to play with Mr. White anymore? Support your local MMA gear manufacturers.

    You try to have a Monopoly on any business, that's the game of Life. You play hardball, it's not Candyland out there. You roll the die, try and Connect Four, and when you do, it's "Yahtzee!". So to all you haters out there, Go Fish. Dana White isn't Sorry.

    "Kripes, that girl on the left is hot." ^ that statement is true of either picture.

    I got a clue & a degree. Zuffa is undermining every other organization that can compete (if you cant see the examples i'm not going to waste time explaining it) & with its new black list policy on sponsors in multi/cross-promotions, UFC is influencing all sponsors' choice to give money to smaller promotions causing them to rely on donations & ticket sales, which is not enough to make it big in the industry. And after they completely destroy the competing or even noncompeting promotion they buy out all of the best fighters & liquidate the rest of the holdings. That is not life, that is corporate sabotage & as soon as they make it into all 50 states, someone's gona notice.

    I like how you guys take your pick at each one of the girls. When in real life given the chance you'd take any of them. Seriously you know that if one of them was all over your nuts for a night, you wouldn't waste any time spittin some game and getting some pussy. PS - If I really was being forced to pick though it'd be bottom left for sure.

    I'm no Mexicano, but one thing I know for sure is that punete is not a spanish word! Puno or golpe is punch. Maybe you meant to say punalada? If I were have to guess your country of origin, it would be P.R.(or should I say U.S. commonwealth)
